What are the 8 new Stunt Races in the GTA Online Summer Update?
Along with the cool new promotion, Rockstar has also provided a brief outline of what to expect with each of the new races.
Sun, Sea, and Chicanes
Experience the majesty of nature as it hurtles by your window in the kind of nauseating blur that’s sure to leave a smile on your face and your dinner on the dashboard. Stunt Race for classic sports cars.
A Tight Spot
Does the crushing stress of the modern world leave you feeling like the walls are closing in? Prove once and for all that it’s not just in your head when your scalp gets violently sanded by the tarmac above. Claustrophobics need not apply. Stunt Race for motorcycles.
Bridge Too Far
Between the mayhem and carnage of a track packed with the kind of lunatics who take a swig of Terroil while filling up their tank, is there a better time to truly appreciate the structural integrity of the La Puerta Freeway? No. There’s not. Stunt Race for sports cars.
Inspired by postmodern nonlinear French architecture, this is what you get when you feed your architect nothing but Deludamol and Blêuter’d then watch as he flatlines into the scale model. In other words, a work of genius, and one hell of a Stunt Race for muscle cars.
How much G-force is too much G-force, and wouldn’t you like to know first-hand? If you answered, “there’s no such thing” and “hell yeah” then you’re the ideal participant to run in this phase two clinical trial. You can rest assured the scientific findings will be greatly appreciated when they scoop you out the driver’s seat. Stunt Race for supercars.
After an expensive lobbying campaign, the race organizers have managed to exempt this race from the yearly San Andreas road-fatality statistics. Because if you decide a big ass truck should take on aerobatics, you get what’s coming to you. Stunt Race for off-road vehicles.
Smoke Up Your Asphalt
In an effort to distract the health and safety board from endemic violations, the Palmer-Taylor Power Station has agreed to host a tribute to the power and beauty of fossil fuels. The advice? Ride this race like it’s your last, because if the jumps don’t get you the noxious fumes will. Stunt Race for motorcycles.
Clear your throat, loosen your tie, and inform the AGM that you will finish strategizing as you hit G-force. It’s time to take business outside. Is anyone taking notes? Stunt Race for supercars.

Where to find graffiti-covered walls at Hydro 16 & Catty Corner for Fortnite Week 2 Quests
Here’s how you can complete the Fortnite Season 7 Week 2 Quest to find Graffiti-covered walls at Hydro 16 and Catty Corner.
There are brand-new challenges in Week 2 of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7, and here’s how you can complete the one that requires you to find graffiti-covered walls at Hydro 16 and Catty Corner.
One of the Week 2 Epic Quests requires you to search for a Graffiti-covered wall at either Hydro 16 or Catty Corner. Here’s exactly where you can find each of these locations and get this done.
Where to find the Graffiti-covered walls at Hydro 16 and Catty Corner in Fortnite
To complete this Fortnite challenge, you’ll first need to complete another Quest that has you collect spray cans from warehouses around Pleasant Park and Dirty Docks. You should be able to find those easily enough.
Once that’s done, you can find a Graffiti-covered wall at the hydro plant known as Hydro 16, as well as in Catty Corner. Once you’ve located one of these, you’ll need to walk up to it and interact with it.
To make this easier, we’ve marked both of the Graffiti locations on the map below:
Fortnite graffiti locations
The Hydro 16 landmark is located near Slurpy Swamp, and you can find it by heading along the road east out of that area. The Graffiti will be on a wall around the front, right above the murky water.
Alternatively, you can choose to visit Catty Corner near the southeast corner of the map. Rather than finding the wall directly inside the area, you’ll need to make your way east along the road out of there.
The Graffiti will be on a wall that’s along the road next to a bunker. Interact with it, and this will net you a total of 30,000 XP.
Just be sure to drop directly into either of these areas after you jump from the Battle Bus. However, other players may also have the same idea, so it’s best to be ready for a battle.
That’s all you need to do to complete this weekly challenge in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7. You can also check out our guide on how to level up the Season 7 Battle Pass as fast as possible.

Apex Legends devs finally fixing frustrating stuttering issues
Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that a fix is coming for the stuttering issues plaguing Apex Legends on PC.
Stuttering issues can often make playing Apex Legends at a high frame rate feel much less fun, but Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that a fix for this problem is on its way.
One advantage to playing games on PC is that you get to enjoy them at a decently high frame rate. While that sounds fun, it also comes with its own set of problems, as Apex Legends fans have to deal with stuttering issues.
This is when the high frame rate causes the game to be choppy, ruining your accuracy. As a result, players often end up lowering the FPS. Now, Respawn have assured fans that this will soon be resolved.
Apex Legends fans were discussing the “microstutter bug” on Reddit, and this gained a response from Respawn’s Lead Software Engineer Samy ‘ricklesauceur’ Duc.
One player asked if there was any way to get past the game’s 300 FPS cap, and another user advised against trying this. The game engine has a bug in it which causes a microstutter when you reach 180 FPS.
The developer then confirmed that this issue “should be gone after [the] next patch.” This fix will allow players on higher-end rigs to enjoy smoother gameplay than before.
Once this patch arrives, PC gamers should be able to get past the 180 FPS mark without encountering stuttering issues. There’s currently no date given for when we should expect to see this update patch.
This fix seems to be exclusive to PC, and players experiencing stutter issues on console will have to wait for a wider patch.
