Where to find the Loch Ness Monster Easter Egg in GTA Online

The mythical creature has finally been found after all these years, here’s where to find the Loch Ness Monster Easter Egg in GTA Online.

The Loch Ness Monster has finally been confirmed in the world, strangely in the waters of Cayo Perico. We know where the biggest monster of Scottish folklore has finally surfaced in GTA Online and can tell you how to find the Easter Egg.

Aside from one fabricated sighting in 1934, “Nessie” has forever be engrained in the myth section of human history and it’s suspected that the creature has never actually existed. That is until now.

As is to be expected in a Grand Theft Auto game, a Heist escape has been able to spring the sudden appearance of one of Earth’s greatest mysteries…in the waters of Cayo Perico.

Loch Ness Monster Easter Egg in GTA Online

There were some early rumblings that a cool Easter Egg was hidden in Rockstar’s newest expansion as a sand sculpture of the Loch Ness Monster can actually be located at the island’s beach party somewhere behind a bar. It seemed quite out of place and got people wondering if Nessie had decided it needed a vacation away from the Highlands.

Well thanks to the efforts of Reddit user FlamingBlades20, we can now officially confirm that the hulking Scottish sight is certainly one to behold.

It seems the creature can only be seen when you are attempting to “Escape Cayo Perico”. But you can find it in different spots during the final escape in The Heist. You can’t hurt the Loch Ness Monster and it’s not actually considered a living object and is more of a prop. So this means it doesn’t have fully-fledged animations or make sounds.

You’re only supposed to be able to see the creature from a distance using a camera or a Sniper Rifle scope, but due to it being a bit buggy, it’s possible that the creature won’t dive into the water immediately. So it will actually remain and allow you to get right up close to it like FlamingBlades20 does.

It’s a nice little touch that goes along with some of the series’ most famous Easter Eggs such as Bigfoot and ghosts.

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.

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

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.

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.
