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.

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.

Destiny 2 Valor Ranks: Point requirements & how to reset

Destiny 2 players can increase their Valor rank for bragging rights and rewards, so here’s the point requirements and how to reset your rank.

Published

As you play PvP matches in Destiny 2, you’ll begin to earn Valor Ranks which showcase your skill and dedication, and you can also reset your rank for rewards.

Destiny 2 offers players ranks to increase as they play PvP and complete raids throughout a season. There are two types of rank points to earn in Destiny 2, Valor and Glory.

Valor increases as you play the game, no matter if you’re winning or losing, and Glory is your competitive rank where you’re rewarded and punished for wins and losses.

We’re taking a look at Destiny 2’s Valor Rank, explaining how you can increase it, and how to reset it when the time comes.

How to increase Valor Rank in Destiny 2

Destiny 2 increase power rank

Valor Rank in Destiny 2 is essentially your season level. As you play PvP in playlists such as Quickplay or Rumble, you will earn Valor Rank points. And unlike the competitive Glory Rank, you’ll earn points no matter if you win or lose.

However, winning games will offer you more points, so concentrate your efforts on doing this of course.

You’ll begin with the Guardian rank with six more ranks to progress through, with the option to reset your level for a reward once you hit the highest tier.

Here are all of the Valor Ranks and their point requirements:

  1. Guardian: 0 points
  2. Brave: 50 points
  3. Heroic: 350 points
  4. Fabled: 700 points
  5. Mythic: 1150 points
  6. Legend: 1800 points
  7. Exotic: 2000 points

How to reset Valor Rank in Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer

Once you hit the highest level of Valor at 2,000 points, you can reset your rank similar to the traditional Prestige system from Call of Duty. Like CoD, doing this reaps several benefits such as unlocking Exotic Engrams.

Resetting Valor changed with Season of the Chosen, and you now have to talk to Lord Shaxx to do it.

Here’s how to reset Valor in Season of the Splicer:

  1. Talk to Lord Shaxx in the Crucible
  2. You now need to claim these items from Shaxx:
  3. ‘Upgrade Module’
  4. ‘Enhancement Core’
  5. ‘Pyretic Clash’
  6. ‘Enhancement Prism’
  7. ‘Light Crash’
  8. Select and hold ‘Reset Reputation’ on the right of the rewards

Once you have reset your Valor Rank, you’ll go back down to zero and will receive an Exotic Engram. You can keep doing this all season, rewarding your dedication with plenty of great rewards.

Your Valor Rank will also reset once the next season begins, so make sure you unlock everything you want to before Season 15 launches.

Secret Octane change added to Apex Legends Season 10 update

Apex Legends Season 10 is set to shake up things in Respawn’s battle royale, and the update is also bringing a secret update to Octane.

Published

on

apex legends octane launch pad

Ahead of the Apex Legends Season 10 launch, a secret change to Octane has been revealed that should make the Legend’s Launch Pad easier to hear in Season 10 Emergence.

Octane continues to be an insanely popular Legend to use in Apex Legends, and Season 9 was no different. Now, it’s the time of Season 10, and Emergence will be adding a new Legend in Seer, a wave of buffs and nerfs for various Legends, amongst other cool stuff.

Respawn Entertainment released a full list of updates for Season 10 but forgot one small detail in the patch notes. It concerns Octane’s Launch Pad and aims to address one commonly discussed problem with it.

Director of Communications at Respawn Entertainment Ryan K. Rigney was informed that an important update hadn’t been mentioned in the Apex Legends Season 10 patch notes.

He said: “Just heard from a dev about an Emergence update change that didn’t get tracked in the patch notes: The audio triggered by players’ landing impacts should be louder when they’re coming in from a jump pad.”

Depending on the severity of the change, this could be huge news as Octane is statistically the most used player in Apex Legends, according to Apex Legends Status.

Players have wanted this to be looked at for some time as it’s possible for Octane players to glide into a location relatively silently to jump another player.

Not everyone is confident the fix will properly amend the issue, with one reply to the Tweet saying: “should.”

Ryan was quick to respond to this doubt by saying: “This is game development, something can always go wrong.” This will just be one change amidst a sea of alterations in Apex Legends Season 10, so even if it’s not the absolute fix that people want, there’s still a lot of new content and changes to embrace.

Also, check out when Apex Legends Season 10 starts.
