Where to find the pinecones for the Perfect Shot trophy or achievement

The minigame required to complete the Perfect Shot trophy or achievement is located in Chapter I: Under A New Sun. As you stroll along the countryside, Hugo will eventually crawl up on a rock and quickly take note of a riverbank down below, which he’ll then run down to. Follow him, and he’ll tell you there are ships attacking his kingdom, at which point he’ll begin throwing pinecones into the water for you to shoot with your sling.

This minigame functions as a way to teach you how the sling works, but you’ll need to hit every pinecone to earn Perfect Shot. Make sure you stay behind the limb on the bank, or else you won’t be able to use the sling, and the pinecones will float on by. Simply aim at each of them until you’ve primed the shot, then unleash it. Make quick work of each pinecone, prioritizing any that are getting close to the limb on the bank.

Eventually, you’ll be interrupted briefly by a boy who asks to play with you, and then the game will continue with even more pinecones. Continue firing quickly, and if a pinecone passes you by, restart the checkpoint immediately to try again. Take note that a cutscene may trigger before you can hit the last pinecone or two if you happen to take too long, so don’t hold your primed shots too long, and be sure to keep a steady rhythm.

When you’ve destroyed all of the “attacking” pinecones, Hugo will rejoin you and hold your hand. Around this time, the Perfect Shot trophy or achievement should pop for you.

With the addition of multiple new vehicles in Chapter 4 Season 2, you'd be forgiven for not knowing precisely which one is a Nitro Drifter (pictured above). This colorful street racing car can be found in multiple spots around the map, but it's most plentiful in and around Mega City -- which unfortunately isn't one of the best places to land in Fortnite, due to it being a hotspot. If you don't want to deal with all of the competition you're certain to face in downtown Mega City, your best bet for finding plenty of Nitro Drifters is by landing at the racetrack to the north of the city.

You can still get a Thunder Shotgun in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. Here’s how
Fortnite characters in a city.

Fortnite has received plenty of exciting new weapons in Chapter 4 Season 2, and in typical fashion, Epic has also vaulted some of last season's weapons to clean up the loot pool. Among the weapons vaulted for Season 2 is the Thunder Shotgun -- but weirdly, it can still be obtained, as it appears Epic possibly overlooked one NPC who drops it.

Anyone who wants to score the Thunder Shotgun in Season 2 can head over to Frenzy Fields and look for the NPC named Sunflower who walks around the farm. Simply eliminate her and pick up the weapon she drops. It's unclear if this is actually something Epic missed, or if the team just simply didn't want to bother changing up Sunflower's loot drops. Either way, it's currently the only way to obtain the Thunder Shotgun.

Can you play PSVR games on PSVR2?

Backward compatibility was a bit rocky for Sony with the PlayStation 3 generation going into the PS4. Thankfully, that was resolved moving from PS4 to PS5, but that wasn't the only new piece of hardware Sony released. The PlayStation VR2 is, as the name implies, the second generation of the dedicated PlayStation virtual reality headset. Despite taking many design and features from other popular headsets, such as the Meta Quest 2, PSVR2 is made only to work with your PS5. You might assume that this new, more powerful headset would be backward compatible with all the original PSVR titles, but that may not be a safe bet. If you have a library of original PSVR games you want to play on PSVR2, here's what you need to know.
Is PSVR2 backward compatible with PSVR?

No, Sony confirmed prior to the PSVR2's launch that it would not be able to play any of your PSVR games, saying the disparity between the two headset's power and technical differences made this impossible. Whatever the reason, this was a big disappointment to those who supported the PSVR and accumulated a library of titles for it they wanted to bring forward.
