Season 3, week 3 quest guide

Damage Opponents Within 30 Seconds of Getting out of the Water (75)

There are plenty of ways to finish this one, but the easiest way is to try for it at Reality Falls. This is a hot drop, but if you get lucky, you can land on the tree, grab a weapon from a chest, then jump into the water below, before getting out and dealing 75 damage to an opponent. Many players will leave their Reality Sapplings in this area, so you can easily ambush them from behind while they’re collecting fruit and other items from their trees, possibly along the water.

Dislodge or Destroy Runaway Boulders with a Melee Weapon (3)

To the northwest of Reality Falls is a landmark called Peril Pass, which contains several runaway boulders. These are large rocks that remain stationary until you destroy the smaller pieces below them with your pickaxe. On the map above are the locations of three runaway boulders in this area, so destroy all three to complete this challenge.

Get Three Seconds of Air Time in a Land Vehicle (1)

This is yet another one with plenty of solutions. We actually completed it while visiting The Temple to the northeast of The Daily Bugle for another quest. To the east of The Temple is a Whiplash sports car, as indicated on the map above. Drive this vehicle to the north side of The Daily Bugle area and use your boost just as you launch from the cliff to gain more air. You’ll reach three seconds of air with ease using this method.

Headbutt an Opponent While Riding a Boar (1)

On the eastern side of Shifty Shafts is a boar pen, so head there and ride on the back of one for this quest. We advise turning on Visualize Sound Effects so you can easily find enemies and when you do find one, charge at it with your boar. As long as you make contact, you’ll earn credit for this challenge. If you miss, do a lap around the enemy and give it another try. It’s possible this quest can be completed by damaging NPCs, but we were unable to test it.

Impulse an Enemy Player with a Shockwave Grenade (1)

You can find Shockwave Grenades as floor loot or from chests, but to guarantee finding one, we advise heading to the house marked on the map above, where you’ll find an NPC name Metal Team Leader who sells a pair for 36 gold. After you’ve found a Shockwave Grenade, simply throw it at an enemy player and launch them into the air to complete this quest.

Jump off a Diving Board (3)

There are likely multiple areas with diving boards that will count for this challenge, but the one we know of is located on an elevated piece of land to the south of Rocky Reels, as noted on the map above. You’ll need to use a nearby grapple to reach the top, and then build a structure to cross the gap (make sure you play in a Build Mode to do so). You can dive from the same board two more times to complete this one. Oddly enough, the diving boards by the nearby pools don’t seem to count for this challenge.

Reach Max Shields at a Temple (1)

This one’s simple. You can land near The Temple to get stocked up beforehand or make a beeline for this area right away. Either way, make sure you start with zero shields when you arrive and only begin filling them up once you’re inside The Temple area. It’s best to be on the lookout for Slurp Barrels, some of which can be found within the Temple walls. If you have small shield potions, make sure to drink those first. Once you reach 100 shields in the Temple, you’ll wrap up this straightforward challenge.

Sea of Thieves alliances guide: how to join and benefits
Two ships fighting in Sea of Thieves.

There are ways in which you could play as a solo pirate in Sea of Thieves, but adventuring is so much more fun and rewarding when you're part of a crew. Once you've gotten a handle on how to play the game, taking on voyages and attacking other players with fellow pirates is where the real fun begins. Alliances make it much easier to coordinate and team up with your fellow scallywags, but how you form them and all the benefits they can provide are somewhat obfuscated. It isn't as simple as joining a party through a menu like in other games, so follow our treasure map to learn all about how alliances work in Sea of Thieves.
How to join or start an alliance

Alliances aren't made in menus, but require you to do some work in-game. Just like real pirates, alliances are determined by what flag you're flying. When you're sailing near a ship you want to partner up with, climb up your crow's nest and interact with the flag box. Go to the Alliances tab and choose the Offer Alliance flag. If the other ship is also flying that flag, you can then change your flag to the Join Alliance flag to fully form the alliance. There is no limit on how many ships can be in an alliance at once in one game.

All Incantations and how to unlock them in Hades 2
Melinoe fighting under a full moon in Hades 2.

You can't have a game where you play as a witch without a massive cauldron. Hades 2 places one front and center in the Crossroads, but it isn't just there for decorative purposes. Melinoë can use this big boiling pot of green liquid to bring new features into the game, whether it be between runs or during them, in exchange for various materials like Silver. You will only start out with a few Incantations, but doing more runs and getting further toward your goal of killing Chronos will gradually unlock more to create. There are far more than you might expect for an early access game. Here are all the Incantations and their recipes.
Every Incantation, effect, and recipe
The order in which you unlock Incantations in the menu can vary based on what you do and how you progress in Hades 2, so this list is in no particular order. Also, it is possible there are more we haven't been able to unlock yet, so we will update this list if we discover any more or if additional ones are added during early access.

Can you fix the Fortnite servers not responding error?

The last thing you want to see when loading up Fortnite for a match with your friends, especially when a big new update is dropping, is to be hit with an error. The worst of which might be the "Fortnite servers not responding" error due to how vague it is. Most people don't know what servers are, let alone what it means when they aren't responding, except that you can't play your game. The question then becomes if you have any power to solve this issue yourself or if you're forced to wait until Epic Games addresses it on its end.
Can you fix the servers not responding error in Fortnite?

The first thing to do when encountering this error in Fortnite is to go straight to the Epic Games Help website or X account (formerly Twitter). This will let you know if it is something on Epic Games' end that is the issue and also keep you updated on the status of when the servers are expected to be fixed. Servers can also be taken down for maintenance or in preparation for major updates, which will also be accounted for here. If this is the case, there's nothing to do but wait until they announce the servers are back up and running.
