Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II: all safe locations and combinations

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II doesn’t feature any notable collectibles to find during your playthrough, but it does have a total of three safes that you’ll need to track down if you want to earn the Gentleman Thief trophy or achievement. Thankfully, these can be obtained via Chapter Select, so if you miss one during your initial playthrough, you can always go back and open it later. In this guide, we’ll tell you where to find all three safes.

Further reading

Safe 1 — Mission 11: El Sin Nombre

At the beginning of Mission 11, you’ll exit an elevator and be given the ability to move about a mansion freely. Stay outside and wrap all the way around the right side of the mansion until you see a small balcony with an open door. Climb up to it using the nearby wall, enter the door, and then head left up the staircase. Head straight, and take a left at the small statue in front of you, then another right on the balcony area. Head straight again from there until you reach a door on the left. Enter the room, then wrap around to the right to see a closet that you can open to find the safe.

Combination: 02-02-19

Safe 2 — Mission 13: Alone

In Mission 13, you’ll have to disarm a trap that will provide you with a shotgun. Immediately after this, head up the stairs and down the hallway until you can open a door. When you do, you’ll see a body fall to the floor and reach out to you. There’s nothing you can do, so move forward into the coffee shop and turn left to see a door that can be opened using a shiv. If you don’t have a shiv, grab materials around the area to craft one, then open the door to find the safe.

Combination: 10-10-80

Safe 3 — Mission 13: Alone

After finding the previous safe in Mission 13, leave the room and look for a broken section in the banister ahead and to the right. Drop down and head outside, going left at the white car in front of you. Open the blue door here to enter a garage, then walk into the second area here and check the left side for a door into an office. Inside, against the wall, is the third chest.

Combination: 37-60-80

How to change the difficulty in Sea of Stars
Zale and Valere from Sea of Stars

In many ways, Sea of Stars feels like a return to what put role-playing games on the map decades ago, thanks to its gorgeous 16-bit visuals and turn-based combat encounters that really capture one of gaming's most memorable eras. However, that doesn't mean it offers no modern conveniences, as it's actually a very accessible game with plenty of creative design choices that make it feel like it fits right into our current times, too. One of the ways in which it adds modern flair is via its unique difficulty system, which eschews the usual Easy/Medium/Hard selections for something more customizable. Here's how it works.
How to use Relics to change the difficulty
Similar to the ring system from Final Fantasy XVI, Sea of Stars allows you to customize the game's difficulty to your liking via various Relics with individual perks and boons that can be toggled on and off at any time. These can be found in the status menu by scrolling down to "Relics," and the game will give you two very early on, though it's important to keep an eye out for others you can pick up.

Those looking for an easier experience are likely to appreciate The Amulet of Storytelling, which you'll have access to at the beginning of the journey. This Relic doubles your overall HP and heals you automatically after combat, making many of the game's areas significantly easier. However, you'll also be able to pick up the Artful Gambit a little ways into your quest, which will reduce your HP by 95% and add additional bonuses for timing blocks and attacks properly, making the game much more difficult.

How to access the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 beta
A soldier aims their pistol at an enemy at night.

It's been almost a year since last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released, which means it's time for the next installment in the annual shooter franchise. This time we're completing the trilogy (again) with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. This entry has already generated a lot of hype among fans of the franchise for the inclusion, and return, of some highly requested features such as the mini-map and Zombies mode.

Sticking to the usual late-fall release schedule, Modern Warfare 3 will officially launch on November 10 of this year, but that doesn't mean you have to wait until then to get a taste of what's to come. If you play your cards right, you can get in on the beta to sharpen your skills before the competition.

How to get a mount in Wayfinder
Three characters face-off against a larger enemy in Wayfinder,

The gameplay loop in Wayfinder may be largely focused on running dungeons and gearing up your various characters, but there's also a wide-open world out there to explore for some quests and loot. That may leave you wondering how to snag a trusty mount that you could use to ride around a bit faster, and we'd like to think that's a pretty reasonable thing to desire. However, you may be surprised that the process of getting a mount isn't entirely clear yet, and there's only one guaranteed way to score one right now. And even using that method requires you to exercise some patience. We'll explain it all below.
How to get a mount
If you're wanting to get your hands on a mount in Wayfinder anytime soon, you're out of luck. As of this writing, the only way to obtain a mount in the game is to purchase an Awakened or Exalted Founder's Pack, both of which come with the Highlands Strider Mount and Saddle among a treasure trove of other goodies. The former will run you $90, while the latter is the ultimate tier of Founder's Pack and costs a whopping $150.

The downside is that, even after purchasing one of these upper-tier Founder's Packs, you still won't have immediate access to the Highlands Strider mount. As of right now, mounts aren't active in the game, and we're not entirely sure when they'll go live. When we have more information, we'll be sure to update you here, though. In the meantime, it looks like you'll be legging it through Wayfinder!
