Without cash, you can’t upgrade your weapons, leaving you vulnerable to progressively stronger enemies. Find out the best ways to earn cash in Resident Evil Village.

Finding new weapons in Resident Evil Village is not only a godsend as it can grant you more power to take down enemies, but it’s also a reminder to you that the game is going to get tougher. The reason you need better weapons is that bigger, badder, and stronger foes are going to cross your path.

So it’s imperative that you’re doing everything in your power to scrounge as much cash together to give to the Merchant. There’s no point in The Duke asking “What are ya buying?” if you’ve got nothing to buy with.

Our guide should aid you in your quest to hoard cash in Resident Evil Village and allow you to get through to the end of the game.

Easy ways to earn money in Resident Evil Village

1. Search everywhere and check everything

Resident Evil games notoriously hide things anywhere. Sneakily off-screen, in a dark corner, and in objects. You need to check the environment extensively to ensure you don’t miss anything.

Approach all objects and see if you can interact with them. Check below and above, and make sure you leave no stone unturned in your journey to uncover all the game’s open loot. Even if it’s just one lot of handgun ammo, that could be the difference between a boss dying and you dying.

2. See if something is breakable

Following on from the point above, Capcom generally doesn’t always tell you if something is breakable. We’re well past the days of a box with a suspicious silhouette or color palette to tell us we can destroy it.

A melee weapon will be your best friend in this regard as you don’t need to waste ammo, and you can thoroughly examine the structural integrity of objects.

3. Kill enemies

Pretty self-explanatory on this one, but if you see an enemy, kill it. If you’re not in the best position, health-wise or ammo-wise, to kill an enemy, then come back to them later if you can.

Entries such as Resi 4 and Resi 5 encouraged the slaughtering of deadly foes as they would drop ammo, treasure, money, and health. It’s not always a guarantee, but note that you can be rewarded for being diligent in your Lycan slaying.

4. Kill animals and sell their meat

Resident Evil Village’s new cooking system means that capturing some of the local livestock will help you cook a tasty meal and replenish your health.

But instead of turning them into a nutritious snack, you could instead turn them over and make a tidy profit to upgrade your gear. If you’re flying high and feel invincible, then maybe some extra cash wouldn’t be the worst option.

Who is the most popular Apex Legends character? Season 10 pick rates

Apex Legends Season 10 is well into its stride, but who has dominated the pick rates for Season 10 of Respawn’s battle royale?

Published

on

Season 10 is one of Apex Legends’ biggest ever seasons, and it’s welcomed the popular character Seer. But who has the highest pick rates in Season 10 of Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its rival battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many players now jumping ship to Respawn’s game, Apex Legends Season 10 is arguably its biggest ever!

There are now a whopping 18 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. The newest one is Seer, and after a dominating start to Season 10, the 1.78 update has seen him receive a significant nerf. This has completely changed the game’s pick rates and made the Season 10 meta open again.

Between the Arenas mode and Ranked Leagues to compete in, thousands of matches have already been logged in Season 10, and we will break down and find the Legends with the highest pick rates in Season 10.

Apex Legends Season 10 pick rate ranked list

This is our complete list of every character pick in Apex Legends, and we’ve ranked them in ascending order to let you know which are favored more.

Here is every Apex Legends pick rate in Season 10 ranked, as of September 24, 2021, according to Apex Legends Status:

  1. Octane – 14.6%
  2. Wraith – 11.4%
  3. Pathfinder – 9.9%
  4. Bloodhound – 9.1%
  5. Lifeline – 8.4%
  6. Valkyrie – 5.2%
  7. Bangalore – 5.1%
  8. Horizon – 4.6%
  9. Seer – 4.4%
  10. Rampart – 4.3%
  11. Loba – 4.2%
  12. Fuse – 3.7%
  13. Caustic – 3.5%
  14. Mirage – 3.2%
  15. Gibraltar – 2.7%
  16. Revenant – 2.6%
  17. Wattson – 1.6%
  18. Crypto – 1.6%

Best Apex Legends pick rates in Season 10

5. Lifeline – 8.4%

Just clocking in at the number five spot is Lifeline. Everyone’s favorite healer takes up 8.4% of the Apex Legends’ picks, and for good reason too.

One of the big things that separates Apex Legends from other battle royale games is its lenience towards reviving – specifically Knockdown Shields. It provides lots of time to revive teammates and Lifeline can take advantage of this.

Her Drone of Compassion (or D.O.C) abilities can heal players over time and even revive them without needing Lifeline to do it. Her Care Package Ultimate is a bit weak, but overall, she is a great addition to any team.

4. Bloodhound – 9.1%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 10.

With nearly a 12% pick rate at the beginning of Season 9, Bloodhound has dipped a bit to 9.1% but still remains the third-most picked Legend. Their pick rate is rising slowly thanks to the alterations to Seer, meaning that Bloodhound is the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends.

Their tracking tools and skills are incredible, and the fleet of foot provided by their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

3. Pathfinder – 9.9%

A beneficiary of the Seer nerfs, Pathfinder has become a part of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 9.9% and counting.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation.

2. Wraith – 11.4%

apex legends wraith character

Another starting legend, Wraith possessed a very high pick rate of nearly 14% during Season 9 and is still currently well-selected backed at 11.4%.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan-favorite in Apex Legends Season 10.

1. Octane – 14.6%

apex legends octane character

The king is back on his throne as the game’s number one pick. Although his pick rate isn’t quite in the 20% region like in Season 9, his still undisputedly the primary selection, and rising, at 14.6%.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away. But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.

You can use this to sneak attack players, reach high-up spots for beacons, escape battles, or use it as a way to get back into the playing zone.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 10. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, affecting the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks, and don’t forget to check out our tier list of every Apex Legends weapon. Also, read about the potential incomings in Apex Legends Season 11.

How to upgrade weapons in Fortnite Season 8: Upgrade Bench locations, Crafting, more

Looking for an upgrade? Here’s how to increase your weapon rarity in Fortnite Season 8 through Upgrade Benches, Crafting, and more.

Published

on

Fortnite Upgrade Bench

There are several ways to upgrade your weapons in Fortnite Season 8, so here are all of the Upgrade Bench locations and where you can find Weapon-o-Matic machines to purchase higher rarity guns.

Looting and crafting the best weapons possible is a significant factor in winning a game of Fortnite. All the builds in the world can’t save you if you can’t defend yourself, after all.

Fortnite is a battle royale, so there will always be some luck in finding the best weapons. However, you can eliminate some of this RNG and build the best loadout possible through upgrading and crafting.

Here’s everything you need to know about upgrading weapons in Fortnite Season 8:

Fortnite Season 8 Upgrade Bench locations

Several Weapon Upgrade Benches are scattered around the Season 8 map, so you should never be too far away from finding one. You can either consult the map from Fortnite.GG, or check out the detailed locations below.

  • Lockies Lighthouse at the southern docking area
  • Craggy Cliffs in the eastern garage
  • Steamy Stacks in the center building
  • Crashed Cargo east of Believer Beach
  • Believer Beach in the trailer park
  • Risky Reels behind the house
  • Corny Crops in the eastern building where Madcap can be found
  • Compact Cards north of Destroyed Dish
  • Dirty Docks in the eastern warehouse
  • Viking Vessel in the house to the north
  • Dusted Depot east of The Aftermath
  • The Durrr Burger
  • Sherrif’s Office north-west of Lazy Lake
  • Retail Row in the fenced-off electricity area
  • Shanty Town at the southern dock
  • Hydro 16 at the east side
  • Catty Corner at the northern end
  • Camp Cod inside the eastern building

How to use Fortnite Upgrade Benches in Season 8

Once you’ve found an Upgrade Bench, you need to approach it, press interact, and follow the prompt to upgrade your weapon’s rarity. But, it comes at a price.

Gold is now Fortnite’s currency, and you’ll need to spend it on upgrading your weapons in matches. Upgrade your weapon a couple of times can get pricey very quickly, so you need to decide if it’s worth all of the hard-earned cash.

Here’s how much it costs to upgrade your weapons in Fortnite:

  • Common (grey) > Uncommon (green) = 200 Gold Bars
  • Uncommon (green) > Rare (blue) = 300 Gold Bars
  • Rare (blue) > Epic (purple) = 400 Gold Bars
  • Epic (purple) > Legendary (orange) = 500 Gold Bars

Fortnite Weapon-o-Matic Vending Machine locations

If you need a quick weapon fix, Weapon-o-Matic Vending Machines can offer you a cheap alternative – if you’re lucky enough to find one. You won’t need to fork out hundreds of Gold to upgrade, but you can only do so the right upgrade is available.

It only costs 50 Gold Bars to purchase a new weapon from a Weapon-o-Matic machine, so it will be well worth your time checking what they have in stock.

You can check out the map above for every Weapon-o-Matic Vending Machine location.

How to craft weapons in Fortnite Season 8

Crafting has also returned in Fortnite Season 8 and can be a great way to build yourself some special weapons. All you need is a base weapon and Nuts and Bolts or Cube Monster Parts.

You can find the Nuts and Bolts all around the Fortnite island in chests and toolboxes, and the Cube Monster Parts are gained by defeating Sideways Monsters. Once you have these parts, here’s what you can craft:

  • Pump Shotgun + Nuts and Bolts: Charge Shotgun
  • Lever Action Shotgun + Nuts and Bolts: Charge Shotgun
  • Assault Rifle + Nuts and Bolts: Suppressed Assault Rifle
  • Burst Assault Rifle + Nuts and Bolts: Suppressed Assault Rifle
  • Submachine Gun + Nuts and Bolts: Rapid Fire SMG
  • Assault Rifle + Cube Monster Parts: Sideways Rifle
  • Burst Assault Rifle + Cube Monster Parts: Sideways Rifle

How to upgrade Sideways Weapons in Fortnite Season 8

Fortnite Sideways weapons

The Sideways spawns in a new area every game, and it can be very lucrative if you’re looking to upgrade your weapons. By using Cube Monster Parts on Sideways Weapons, you can upgrade the weapon’s rarity.

This starts cheap but quickly gets expensive, so you’ll need to take down quite a few Cube Monsters to upgrade these weapons.

Here’s how to upgrade Sideways Weapons in Fortnite Season 8:

  1. Enter the Sideways
  2. Open Sideways chests to get a Sideways Weapon
  3. Defeat Sideways Monsters and collect Cube Monster Parts
  4. Open up the Crafting Menu
  5. Craft the upgrade like you would a normal weapon

And that’s everything you need to know about upgrading weapons in Fortnite Season 8! You can also check out how to complete the Weekly Character Punchcard Quests.
