How to get the free Twitch Glitch pet in Among Us

Among Us is still going strong, even as 2020 draws to a close. Starting from its meteoric rise to fame in the middle of the year, Among Us has remained one of the most popular games on Steam, and we can only assume it’s performing just as well on Android and iOS (maybe even a little better).

In fact, the game has gotten so popular that Twitch Rivals — Twitch’s tournament series focused on streamers — is now running Among Us events. Even better, Twitch is drawing new players in by offering a free Twitch Glitch pet in Among Us — “Glitch” is the name of the Twitch logo — for players who watch a Twitch Rivals Among Us stream from now until December 18.

Although watching a stream is most of what you need to do, there are a few other steps you’ll need to take to bring along Glitch during your tasks. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to get the free Twitch Glitch pet in Among Us.

Step 1: Watch a Twitch Rival Among Us stream

As mentioned, the Twitch Glitch pet in Among Us is meant to promote the Twitch Rivals Among Us Showdown happening from December 4 to December 18. Twitch Rivals is a tournament series, so Among Us isn’t the only game on the docket. Twitch will also have Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Call of Duty: Warzone, and Fortnite streams lined up for the end of the year. Make sure to check the official schedule so you know when to tune in.

The only other thing you need to do is watch a Twitch Rivals Among Us stream for at least 30 minutes, assuming you have a Twitch account. If you don’t, make sure to create a Twitch account before watching the stream. You’ll need to connect that account to Among Us later.

Step 2: Claim your new pet

Once you’ve watched Among Us on Twitch Rivals for at least 30 minutes, you should see a Claim button show up in the chat panel of the stream. Select it to claim your reward and add the Glitch pet to your inventory.

Chat moves fast, though, so there’s another way to claim your pet in case you miss the button. After the required 30 minutes, select your profile by clicking the profile icon in the top right corner, then select Drops. On the next screen, make sure that the Inventory tab is selected, and you should see the Glitch pet there. Select Claim to add it to your account.

Step 3: Connect your Twitch account

Oddly, the last thing need to do is connect your Twitch account with Among Us. Regardless if you’re playing on Steam, iOS, or Android, boot up Among Us and select the Settings icon on the home screen. Then, select the Data tab and look for the Twitch Glitch icon in the bottom left corner. Select it.

You’ll be brought to a Twitch login screen. Log in to your account, then select Authorize on the next screen to connect Among Us to your Twitch account. As long as you watched at least 30 minutes and you redeemed the pet through chat or through your inventory, you should find it in your cosmetic options inside an Among Us lobby.

How to get Structural Materials in Starfield
Starfield planet.

Starfield has a massive expanded the amount of things you can build and craft. From entire Outposts to weapon mods and research projects, everything you want to craft will require specific materials to create. These materials will be found all over the various planets, either as lootable objects, ores you need to mine, or even as items you can purchase from various vendors, but some will always be harder to find than others. Structural Materials, while not the rarest resource, are used in nearly every aspect of Outpost building and upgrades. If you're running low on this crucial building block, here's how to get more Structural Materials in Starfield.
Ways to get Structural Materials

Like any resource in Starfield, there's more than one way to get your hands on Structural Materials. The easiest, but most expensive, will be to simply buy them from one of the many shops around the galaxy. Vendors' stock is slightly variable from day to day, but you can typically rely on any of your more "general" stores to carry this common material, such as the Jemison Mercantile in New Atlantis or Shepard's General Store on Akila. Each vendor will only hold a specific amount, so if you need a lot, you will need to do a little legwork. After buying out everything a vendor has, if you wait for 24 hours at a chair or bed, you can go back and their stock will be replenished.

How to unlock the Pilgrim’s room in Starfield
Cockpit in spaceship from Starfield.

For the most part, the main questline in Starfield won't challenge you too much in terms of puzzle-solving. Missions tend to boil down to getting an objective, fast traveling to a location, and following your marker until you collect an Artifact. Since you can only unlock all the powers by going through the main quests, you will at least want to complete most of them before going off and doing all the faction missions, outpost building, or general space exploration. There's one mission, though, that can be a roadblock if you're not extra observant and invested in reading all the lore. If you don't know the answers to opening the Pilgrim's Computer in Starfield, here is all the information you need.
Pilgrim Computer's answers

After you arrive at Pilgrim's Rest and explore, you will be led to the small base that's full of notes, among dozens of other items. Your objective is behind a locked door that asks you a few questions that you're supposed to learn the answers to by hunting down and reading all the notes. This isn't a door you can lockpick no matter how high your skill level is, so selecting the right answers is the only way forward. Here are all the questions you will be asked, and the correct responses:

How to buy a house in Starfield
Spaceship on planet in Starfield.

Even though you will be spending the majority of your time in Starfield sitting in your ship or exploring the various planets across the universe, you won't have a true place to call your own unless you buy a house. Unlike your ship or the room you're given in Constellation, getting your own home lets you decorate, rest, and really just have a place to make your own. Getting a house isn't mandatory, nor is it even that easy to do. You'll need more than just a pocket full of Credits, so here are the ways you can get yourself a house in Starfield.
Ways to get a house

There are a couple of ways to get a house in Starfield, with the easiest to simply take the Dream Home trait when building your character. This will automatically give you a home after a quick quest, but it isn't free. You will need to pay off a huge 125,000 Credit mortgage before it's officially yours.
