Any users that can download GTA 5 from the Epic Games Store are actually entitled to a free set of bonuses to claim. The “Criminal Enterprise” starter pack contains some much-needed goodies and here’s how you can claim yours.
With Grand Theft Auto 5’s life expectancy continuing on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, there’s still plenty of hype for the game and GTA Online’s continual updates mean that players have lots of content to enjoy.
Some players could be missing out on big content and bonuses that they weren’t even aware of. Any consumers that purchased GTA V from the Epic Store are actually entitled to the Criminal Enterpriser starter pack which grants $1,000,000, cars, and other glorious benefits.
How to redeem GTA Online Epic Store bonuses
Even if you’ve been playing your copy of GTA V, from the Epic Store, for some time, you still may not fully be aware that you have the Premium Edition and you’re entitled to extra content for free.
Let’s fix that and get you the free items you’re missing out on.
Claim your Criminal Enterprise cash
This one is the most straightforward one to get your hands on as the money is automatically added to your account. If you’ve owned the Epic Store Premium Edition for some time, then you’ll have already been rewarded the $1,000,000 from Rockstar by now.
If you have only just bought the game very recently, then the store does issue a prompt saying that it can “take up to 7-10 days” to reflect this money in your account.
Redeeming your GTA Online businesses and property
Your bonuses also entitle you to five buildings. For these, you want to go to the “Dynasty 8” and “Maze Bank Foreclosure” websites in-game. Then re-order the websites by price, lowest first, and your owned property will appear first – as you own them.
Be careful about claiming the 1561 San Vitas Street Apartment because if you’ve managed to get a different home already, it can take the place of the one you already own. This puts any cars you own in the other apartment in jeopardy and you could lose them.
How to get your free GTA Online vehicles
So, you’ve got your cash and buildings, it’s now time for not one, not two, but 10 free vehicles!
To get behind the wheel of them, you’ll need to head to the “Travel and Transport” tab on the internet and then make use of “Legendary Motorsports,” “Southern San Andreas Super Auto,” “Elitas Travel,” and “Warstock.”
Once again, sort by price – lowest to highest – and your owned vehicles will be there for you to get your hands on.
How to redeem GTA Online’s free weapons
Your final lot of loot comes in the form of some ferocious firearms that are sure to help you in most activities you want to engage in.
Claiming these items is the easiest way yet as all you need to do is simply walk into an Ammu-Nation store, approach the counter, and interact with the weapons on the wall until you find the Compact Grenade Launcher, Marksman Rifle, and Compact Rifle. Boom, they are now yours to go on a rampage with.
So, that’s how to claim your Criminal Enterprise starter pack. As we said, even if you’re well into GTA Online and somehow haven’t stumbled across these bonuses, then you absolutely should.

Death Note and My Hero Academia hints found in new Apex Legends teaser
Respawn Entertainment included references to anime titles like Death Note and My Hero Academia in a new Apex Legends teaser image.
Apex Legends fans noticed some neat anime references within the new teaser dropped by Respawn, with images for My Hero Academia and Death Note, along with a few others.
Respawn Entertainment like to create hype among the Apex Legends community by sporadically releasing teasers that show off upcoming content. Now, a new one has caught the attention of fans because of its various easter eggs.
While Apex fans were initially just focusing on was the statue of a Valkyrie that has been connected to the upcoming Legend named Valk, a few eagle-eyed viewers were able to notice some hidden anime references as well.
The new Apex Legends teaser image showcased a room on a spaceship which bares close resemblance to Wattson’s room, as revealed in a previous teaser. Looking closer at the stacked shelves on the right reveals various hints.
The shelf has Portion a Nessie toy, along with the Land of the Lustrous and My Hero Academia manga. If you look at the bottom of the shelf, you can also spot a stack of Death Note chapters next to the Valkyrie statue.
These are surprising additions that the developers deliberately left in the image, and now Apex fans are speculating how this will affect the future of the battle royale.
When Apex Legends released on the Nintendo Switch, Respawn Game Director, Chad Grenier stated the Season 9 character would appeal to Japanese players. These references could be a clue about the Legend’s interest in manga.
Respawn also released weapon charms and a limited-edition Pathfinder skin for Nintendo players, which lines up with Grenier’s promise to “deliver unique content to Japan” in Apex Legends. We might see more anime-themed content added later.
The image also contains a reference to thea Apex Predators from Titanfall on a piece of paper lying on the desk. With Season 9 on the horizon, we expect plenty more surprises to come in the next few months.

Apex Legends War Games: Everything there is to know about Ultra Zones
Apex Legends War Games event is well underway with the latest mode, Ultra Zones, taking inspiration from Season 6’s Flash Point LTM.
Mad Maggie’s Apex Legends takeover continues with War Games Ultra Zones mode, a renewed version of the Season 6 LTM.
Ultra Zones is the newest mode in Apex Legends War Games mini-event and may be familiar to some players.
Since replacing Second Chance, Armour Regen saw a short-lived lifespan being replaced by Ultra Zones at 10am PST, April 14th. The new mode is a rework of the Season 6 LTM, Flashpoint, which received backlash after it came with a host of bugs and performance issues.
How does Ultra Zones work?
The Ultra Zones War Games mode sees multiple hot zones over the map covered in a glowing blue dome. This means not only more gold and higher tier loot, but also the glowing Flash Points which replenish health and shields.
Instead of the hot zones only featuring one gold item, Maggie has decided to put one gold gun and one gold item in each Ultra Zone, meaning even more gold loot!
After a short period of time in an Ultra Zone, players will passively heal shield and health, making for a fun combat zone where players can sustain fights. Unlike the Season 6 LTM, Flashpoint, all healable items are available during this mode.
Similar to the Armor Regen mode, characters with lots of mobility like Octane and Horizon will make be great at dipping in and out of fights to let your health and shield regenerate.
This mode will be the longest-lasting out of all the modes included in the War Games mini-event, staying until 10 am PST on April 19th.
For more on the Apex Legends War Games event stay tuned on Charlie Intel and check out our article on three quality-of-life changes that can improve Apex on the console.

How to get Destiny 2’s Xenophage assault rifle
The Xenophage is an extremely impressive Exotic Weapon that you can collect by completing a quest in Destiny 2.
Wondering how to get the powerful Xenophage rifle in Destiny 2? Here’s how.
Destiny 2 has a ton of cool weapons to choose from before jumping into battle. The Xenophage Exotic machine gun is a great choice because of its accuracy, along with its explosive rounds that will annihilate your enemies.
If you want to get your hands on this powerful weapon, then you’ll need to complete an Exotic quest that requires you to solve puzzles and complete certain tasks. Here’s how you can get the Xenophage Exotic in Season of the Chosen.
How to start the Xenophage Exotic quest
If you want to start this Destiny 2 Exotic quest, then you’ll need to visit the Red Keep room where you saw Eris when completing her Memory quests. From there, you’ll have to make your way towards a puzzle that you need to solve.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Land at Sorrow’s Harbor, and move north into the Red Keep
- Head left from the green crystal, and continue until you approach a small path on the right wall leading upward
- When you enter the main room, light the statues in the correct order (front right, back left, back right, front left)
- Loot the chest in the middle of the area to claim The Journey
Light all six lanterns at The Anchor of Light
You’ll then have to go east of the main southern landing zone at the Anchor of Light portion of the Moon. Once you’re there, collect the orb of flame from the Fallen-infested building.
This orb must be used to light lanterns at six different spots within one minute. Luckily, your timer will reset every time you light one in the correct order, which is the following:
- Right next to where you collected the Orb of Flame.
- On top of the building at the edge of the crevasse to the East
- Inside the small yellow structure interior near the Fallen-infested building
- At the top of the Fallen-infested building
- On a small rooftop by the buried section to the north
- On top of the large round structure over the green pit in the middle of the map
After all six lanterns have been lit in the correct order, you must insert the orb in the small Hive spire near the site where you grabbed the orb.
Where to find all four path fragments
Now, you’ll have to complete all four Lost Sectors on the Moon, and successfully get through Hive rune puzzles at the end of each one. You can find these puzzles in the exit paths for the Lost Sectors.
These consist of nine grids of runes, and shooting one will change all of the symbols in the rune’s row and column. You’ll need to match every rune in the grid with the symbol above the grid. We’ve listed the correct order below:
- K1 Communion: 7, 9, 2, 2
- K1 Revelation: 6, 4, 5, 5, 4, 8, 5, 2
- K1 Logistics: 1, 7, 6, 5
- K1 Crew Quarters: 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 9, 8, 8
Once you’ve line up all the runes, chests will spawn that you can loot to collect all four path fragments.
The Pit of Heresy
This next step will require you to complete various activities within the Pit of Heresy dungeon, including activating a hidden rune, lighting fires, and winning a boss fight. You’ll already have reached 970 PL beforehand, so you can get these done quickly.
Here’s how you can complete the Pit of Heresy:
- Clear all the minibosses at the start of the dungeon
- Make your way to the chamber filled with doorways and platform to the door without a symbol at the entrance
- Activate the hidden rune inside
- Visit the area packed with Hive Ogres before the Hive Totem encounter
- Head left from the fork, then drop down to the rocky ledge below.
- Find the small plate marked with runes and activate it to collect the Orb of Flame.
- Return to the fork, and then take the right path this time.
- Find the sealed door with two braziers on either side, and use the Orb of Flame to light both
This will then open up a door that leads to a boss fight. This enemy is PL 970, so be ready for a dangerous battle. You won’t be able to hurt the boss initially, and you’ll need to do some tasks before that opportunity comes.
You’ll receive a random buff, and you must check it to see where you need to place the Orb of Light. Once you’ve put it in the correct spot in the arena, you’ll gain a Vengeance buff that allows you to hurt the enemy for 25 seconds.
Here’s where to place the orbs:
- Abyssal Dread: Upper Arena – Far left
- Thunderous Dread: Lower Arena – Front left
- Fiery Dread: Lower Arena – Far right
- Neutral Dread: Upper Arena – Front right
Just keep checking your buff, then collect the Orb of Flame and place it in the matching locations. You’ll then have the opportunity to shoot the boss with the matching elemental damage type. Just keep repeating it until you defeat the boss.
Once the enemy has been defeated, you can finally collect the Xenophage Machine Gun for yourself! Now you can go cause some serious pain to your opponents the next time you jump into a match of Destiny 2.
