New Rockstar domain drops more hints about GTA 6 in Vice City

An interesting domain name has been found which could indirectly hint at the return of Vice City in Grand Theft Auto 6.

Fresh developments in the hunt for GTA 6 information have led to the discovery of a recently updated Take-Two Interactive website. It mentions Miami as a “drug capital,” and this furthers the belief that GTA 6 will be set in Vice City.

Official information on Grand Theft Auto 6 is as rare as a Loch Ness monster sighting. Despite the 24/7 appeal for anything concrete on the next installment of Rockstar’s premiere video game series, there is nothing.

We’ve seen a staggering amount of rumors and theories from imminent GTA 6 trailers, to mysterious websites appearing, to suggestions that GTA 6 won’t be set in the 80s as predicted after all.

However, the latest nugget of potential comes directly from Take-Two Interactive, Rockstar’s parent company, as they have updated one of their domain names very recently.

The owners of Rockstar have remained tight-lipped about the whereabouts of GTA 6 but did address the sought-after game in a statement not too long ago.

Now, thanks to one investigative GTA Twitter page, we may know a bit more with regards to the official direction that GTA 6 is heading.

The message contains a mention to a Take-Two domain name entitled “rockstarcartel.com,” evidence that it was updated on “2021-04-12,” and reference to Miami being the “Drug Capital of the World.”

Even more curious is that this is clearly the original site that was registered for GTA: Vice City back in 2002, and it’s still being updated now.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that this cannot be a coincidence, especially with rumors endlessly swirling about GTA 6 returning to the neon paradise of Vice City.

Similar to all other GTA 6 rumors that have been discussed, take these details with trepidation and don’t be disappointed if this doesn’t come to fruition.

On the other hand, it may not be too much longer until we know more as Take-Two has confirmed their appearance at the upcoming E3 Digital Event set to take place in June 2021. Could new Rockstar games be announced at E3?

Here’s an explanation of our tier system:

  • S-Tier weapons are the best for every situation
  • A-Tier are amazing in their own right
  • B-Tier weapons are just missing something
  • C-Tier ones are not worth your time

Our Resident Evil Village weapon tier list:

  • S-Tier: F2 Rifle, W870 TAC Shotgun, M1851 Wolfsbane Magnum, SYG-12 Shotgun
  • A-Tier: M1897 Shotgun, GM 79 Grenade Launcher, V61 Machine Pistol
  • B-Tier: M1911 Pistol
  • C-Tier: LEMI Pistol

LEMI Pistol

resident evil village lemi

As with any Resident Evil game, you will start off with a rudimentary Pistol designed to just help you scrape by the game’s first few meaty encounters. The LEMI is no different, and even with upgrades, it will quickly become an afterthought.

Just use it as much as you can early on and forget about conserving ammo, especially with the game’s first major Lycan set-piece, as health is far more important.

M1911 Pistol

resident evil village M1911

The M1911 isn’t too dissimilar to the LEMI in many respects as it’s a fairly standard weapon that’s base stats are just a bit better. We do like the fire rate on it, and, again, it’s a useful weapon to use at the time of acquiring.

V61 Machine Pistol

resident evil village v61

When you finally come across the V61 Machine Pistol, you can pretty much wave goodbye to any of your Pistols as the V61 will take over their responsibilities now. It’s useful in practically any situation or battle, and once you slap an upgrade or two on it, it will quite often be your go-to gun.

Make sure to give its firepower the attention as its fire rate and ammo is already decent.

M1851 Wolfsbane Magnum

resident evil village m1851

There’s a giddy moment in Capcom’s games when you finally get your hands on the game’s Magnum. The famous revolver carries on the game’s legacy by providing players with yet another unbelievably powerful gun.

Even more so than the GM 79 Grenade Launcher, we highly recommend you conserve its use and preserve its limited ammunition, waiting until you encounter significantly more dangerous foes.

M1897 Shotgun

resident evil village M1897

Your first punchy weapon you obtain in Resident Evil Village. It does what every other basic Shotgun has ever done, be a monster up-close, and kill enemies in one or two shots at the expensive of fire rate and reload time.

With the M1897 you need to master the art of patience. Wait for an enemy to be within touching distance of your person before unleashing a devastating shell into them to possibly kill them in one shot.

W870 TAC Shotgun

resident evil village W870

A better version of the M1897, the W870 TAC Shotgun could potentially be your main weapon if you’re good at conserving ammo. You get it at a decent point in the game, so upgrading its firepower and fire rate is key. Again, concentrate your shots, aim for the head, and your patience will be rewarded with greater damage done.

SYG-12 Shotgun

resident evil village syg

A late-game addition to the pack, the SYG-12 Shotgun will become the de facto Shotgun, especially with enhancements to improve its capabilities. It’s powerful, fast, and is very well-balanced.

You can probably sell the other two shoguns, if you still have them, once you have the SYG-12.

F2 Rifle

resident evil village F2 Rifle

In the right hands, the F2 is potentially the best (non-Magnum) weapon in the game. Even though the description says “specialized for taking out long-range targets.” the gun can ideally be used at any distance.

Its power is already phenomenal in its base form and upgrades should be a priority for it – especially reload speed. Picking off enemies without letting them get a sniff of you is invaluable and will save you lots of health.

GM 79 Grenade Launcher

resident evil village gm 79

Another staple of the Resident Evil franchise is the age-old Grenade Launcher. As usual, ammo is a bit more scarce compared to the other firearms on this list, meaning it’s more of a specialist weapon.

Save it more for bosses and sub-bosses, perhaps even keeping it away in storage most of the time to free up room for other ammo, health, and important items. Make sure to upgrade

Resident Evil Village post-game weapons

Once you’ve completed Resident Evil Village, there are a number of other weapons you can go about unlocking to use in the main game itself on another playthrough.

  • WCX short-barreled assault rifle
  • Karambit Knife
  • USM-AI semi automatic pistol
  • Dragoon assault rifle
  • Hand Cannon PZ
  • Rocket Pistol
  • LZ Answerer

This Clever trick makes Valkyrie fly longer in Apex Legends

There is a clever Apex Legends tactic that you can use to make the new Legend Valkyrie fly for longer during battle.

How to fly longer as Valkyrie

The new Legend Valkyrie is one of the many additions in the Apex Legends Season 9, Legacy update, and there’s a clever trick that you can use to make her soar through the sky for longer than usual.

Apex Legends Legacy brought a ton of new additions for fans to enjoy, including the 3v3 Arenas modenew weapons, a fresh Battle Pass, and of course, a new Legend named Valkyrie

This character brings a certain verticality to the battle royale with her ability to soar through the air for a short period of time. Now, a few players have found a way to use her jetpacks to stay in the air for a longer duration.

Valkyrie's VTOL jets

How to make Valkyrie fly for longer in Apex Legends

This trick was discovered by Reddit user Swogglenoz, who was experimenting with Valkyrie’s jetpacks. Through this, they were able to come up with a way to make her fly much further and longer than normal.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Use Valkyrie’s jetpacks to take off into the sky.
  2. Hold her tactical down while you’re in the air to fly for longer.
  3. Once you’re ready to land, use the melee attack to bring her down.

Using the melee attack will cancel out her deploying the rocket burst tactical, allowing you to land safely. However, you’ll be flying fairly slow, which could leave you vulnerable to enemy attacks.

While some players initially assumed that this might be an exploit, the Apex Legends devs made it clear that this is an intentional tactic. While Valkyrie’s slow speed might come off as useless, this trick is ideal for sneaking up on players.

Valkyrie’s VTOL Jets only allow her to hover across the map within a set amount of fuel, so you’ll need to use this tactic carefully. We recommend saving it for late-game scenarios where it’s easier to be stealthy.

If you want some useful tips and tricks for playing as Valkyrie that will make you into a winged menace on your way to victory, then you can check out or guide for them.

Apex Legends: Best Legends for the Arenas

With the new Arenas mode, Apex Legends is being played in a different way making some Legends more useful than others in Season 9.

Published

on

Apex Legends Arenas

Apex Legends’ new 3v3 Arenas mode is very different from the classic battle royale formula, leaving some players unsure about what Legends would be the best to use. Some Legends are much more useful than others in this mode, so we’ve made a guide to help shed light on them.

Apex Legends’ latest season saw a heap of content introduced to the players. Some of this content was expected, like a new Legend, weapon, and map changes, but some of it came as more of a surprise.

The new 3v3 Arenas mode is a completely new experience for Apex Legends fans, introducing a CSGO/Valorant-esque round-based duel between two teams.

Apex Legends Arenas

Best Legends to use for the Arenas

As the mode is so different from the battle royale, some of the Legends are essential for this mode and can help you and your team reach consecutive victories.

In Arenas, players will have to spend credits in order to purchase weapons, consumables, and even abilities. However, every Legend gets their passive for no extra cost, making some much more viable than others.

If you’re unsure about how you want to spend your crafting materials/credits, check out our guide on the best ways to spend them.

Lifeline in Apex Legends: Arenas

apex legends arenas lifeline

Lifeline is a great option for Arenas and is possibly the most essential Legend for team composition. Lifeline’s abilities aid the team by keeping them alive for as long as possible, and as Arenas can be a war of attrition, Lifeline’s tactical health drone can be essential.

Further, Lifeline’s passive is her D.O.C drone revive, which allows her to revive enemies while staying in the fight. Although this passive was nerfed in the latest patch, removing the protective shield, it is still very strong.

The main reason it’s so strong is because of the Legendary bag players can purchase for only 250 crafting credits. Lifeline with this item can really be a menace, reviving her teammates effortlessly with half health and shields, allowing them to get back into the fight instantly.

Although Lifeline’s ultimate isn’t as useful, her tactical health drone and revive make her one of the most essential Legends for taking the victory in Arenas.

Valkyrie in Arenas

apex legends arenas valkyrie

Valkyrie is another great pick for Arenas, mostly because her main ability and best asset is free. Valkyrie is a great attacking option for the team, gaining different angles on the opposition to make them uncomfortable and offset their position.

The reason Valkyrie is one of the best Legends for Arenas is because of her passive VTOL Jets. Valkyrie’s passive will recharge throughout the game, allowing players to gain height and reposition at any point of a round.

Valkyrie’s tactical, Missile Swarm, will also allow Valkyrie to push enemies out of their position. At this point, Valkyrie can then use her jets to take their position, leaving the opponents at a disadvantage.

Further, Valkyrie’s ultimate, Skyward Dive, is only 150 credits which isn’t expensive, especially in the later rounds. Purchase this ability to take you and your team straight to where the enemies want to be, take over their position and leave them in the dust.

Gibraltar in Arenas

apex legends arenas gibratar

Lastly we have Gibraltar, an extremely useful Legend in the Arenas mostly for his 1v1 capabilities. Gibraltar acts as the anchor for a team, holding down positions taking out enemies who overextend.

Not only is Gibraltar a good option because of his Dome of Protection, which also provides teams with a faster revive option, but his passive can greatly increase his chances of winning 1v1s. In Arenas, you will often find yourself in a 1v1 situation where Gibraltar’s passive gun shield can be really dominant.

The gun shield gives Gibraltar added health, making him a nuisance from range, as he can continue to do damage to the enemies while they are only hitting the gun shield, allowing Gibraltar to save his meds.

Gibraltar’s extra passive, Fortress, which reduces incoming damage by 15%, makes him even more of an essential character for Arenas, as he can easily tank damage and win those isolated fights.


That’s it for the best Legends to use in Arenas, for more on Apex Legends stay tuned on Charlie INTEL and check out our article on all the weapon buffs and nerfs for Season 9: Legacy.
