Earning the Null Composure fusion rifle is easy, but it’ll take some time. You need to complete the A Sacred Fusion quest to unlock it, which requires completing a bunch of playlist activities. Before you can get to that, though, you need the quest.

Head to the Tower, and speak with Banshee-44 to pick it up. If you’ve spoken to him since the start of Season of the Splicer, you should already have the quest in your inventory. Like previous ritual quests, this one requires a grind through playlist activities as you slowly fill two progress bars. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Earn points by defeating enemies in playlist activities
  • Complete playlist activities

The second requirement doesn’t specify any activity, which is a good thing. All you need to do is focus on the playlist activity where you can get the most kills, as that will drive up the progress bar for both requirements. Gambit is a good option if you have a decent build, and you can rack up kills quickly in Crucible if you’re good enough. Realistically, you’ll need to bounce between the various activities to not burn out (our Gambit guide and Crucible guide can help there).

Outside of just playing more Destiny 2, there are a few things you can do to speed up the grind. First, make sure to equip a fusion rifle (preferably with Solar damage) and another weapon with Solar damage. You’ll earn bonus progress for kills with fusion rifles, disintegrations, or Solar damage across playlist activities.

Also, make sure to equip your Stasis subclass. That will earn you even more progress (make sure to read our guide on how to unlock the new Stasis aspects from Season of the Splicer).

Unlocking Null Composure gets you an awesome new fusion rifle, and it will automatically complete a seasonal challenge from Season of the Splicer. Once you’ve gotten through the activities, head back to the Tower, and talk to Banshee-44 to claim your new weapon.

Null Composure perks and mods

Null Composure is a fusion rifle introduced in Season of the Splicer that deals Void damage and uses special ammo. It comes with the Exotic Intrinsic perk Rapid-Fire Frame, which boosts your ammo reserves and provides faster reloads when the magazine is empty. Otherwise, it has two fixed perks and two perk options:

  • Fluted Barrel: Adds +5 stability and +15 handling.
  • Projection Fuse: Adds +10 range.
  • Feeding Frenzy or Heating Up: Feeding Frenzy gives you a reload speed boost for rapid kills, which stacks as you earn rapid kills. Heating Up increases accuracy and stability while improving recoil when you hit a final blow.
  • Reservoir Burst or High-Impact Reserves: Reservoir Burst adds a +30 magazine size and gives you a powerful burst that causes enemies to explode when defeated when the battery is full. High-Impact Reserves makes the rounds at the end of your magazine more powerful.

Of course, customizing your weapon is part of the experience in Destiny 2. We recommend Heating Up and Reservoir Burst, though. Heating Up will provide a solid stat boost as long as you can keep final blows rolling. Reservoir Burst, on the other hand, not only increases your magazine size but also offers a damage boost — with the ability to knock out other enemies — for your first few rounds.

The best weapon mods and perks in Dead Island 2
Dead Island 2 zombie

Ever since Dead Rising came onto the scene, it is almost mandatory for zombie games to include some kind of weapon-crafting system. The first Dead Island had it, and now Dead Island 2 does as well. This system lets you turn any ordinary bat or blade into an electrified powerhouse, flaming flurry, and much more. Aside from needing the materials to actually construct these mods on your weapon of choice, you also need to find their respective blueprint in order to craft it. Considering there are more 30 mods -- and even more perks -- in Dead Island 2, we don't expect you to go find them all and figure out which ones are best. You've got too many zombies to kill for that, so we've done the homework and listed all the best weapon mods and perks in Dead Island 2, plus where you can get them if you haven't found them yet.
Best weapon mods

Superior Melee Liquidator Mod
Any mod that applies the Liquidator effect to your weapon means it will start inflicting Caustic damage. While every element is useful, Caustic in particular is the top choice because there are very few zombies that are immune to this damage type. Because status effects build up based on continuous hits, this mod works best when attached to a weapon with a high rate of attack like a dagger or brass knuckles.

How to get fuses in Dead Island 2
A group of survivors looking stressed and annoyed.

eThere are going to be tons of things blocking your progress when trying to escape LA in Dead Island 2. Aside from the, you know, hordes of zombies, you will find plenty of gates and doors that need power to open. Most can be worked around by installing a battery or circuit breaker, but some require something else. Fuses aren't required at any point in the main story, but instead are limited keys that hide away some of the game's best loot. If you've been spotting all these gates and garage doors taunting you to open them, but lack the fuses to do so, we'll tell you how you can get your hands on some in Dead Island 2.
Where to get fuses in Dead Island 2

Unlike batteries or circuit breakers, fuses won't be found anywhere on the map while exploring. Instead, the only way to get these electrical devices is to purchase them. Obviously, your local hardware store isn't open for business anymore, so your options are limited to the vendors you come across such as Carlos in Emma's house or Ezekiel on The Pier. No matter who you get them from, you're going to be paying a premium. Each fuse costs $1,500, and the sellers usually only hold a few at a time. Even if they had the stock and you had the cash, your character can only hold three fuses at a time before needing to spend them to get more.

One-shot snipers are coming back to Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 for Season 3
Characters shooting enemies in Warzone 2.0.

The highly anticipated Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 3 will include a long-requested feature that fans have been clamoring for. The update will feature the return of one-shot snipers, which have been absent from Warzone 2.0 since its launch (with a couple of temporary exceptions here and there). Activision shared the news via a blog post, which featured more details about what to expect from the upcoming season.

Previously, it would take at least two shots to down a fully-plated enemy in Warzone 2.0, which effectively rendered snipers useless. Since the game's launch in November 2022, a large portion of the community has requested that one-shot snipers be added back into the game. Activision's blog gives a bit of detail about what to expect from the chance.
