Season 3, week 9 quest guide

Bounce on three separate Crash Pads without landing (1)

There are two ways to complete this one. The easiest way is to visit the islands to the east of Sanctuary, where you’ll find four Crash Pads scattered throughout. Make sure to align yourself with the next Pad at the peak of your jump so you have the entire length of the fall to adjust your positioning. The other way to finish this challenge is to utilize Crash Pad items, which can be collected from chests or as floor loot. Throw one down, bounce on it, and then at the peak of the jump, adjust yourself ahead, then place another one before you hit the ground. Do this a total of three times and you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge.

Collect seeds from Reality Seed Pods before they stop bouncing (3)

There are lots of different places that contain Reality Seed Pods such as Reality Falls or even a newer spot to the east of Rave Cave shown on the map above. After you destroy the Pod, the Seeds will all fly up into the air before hitting the ground. Once they touch the ground, they’ll bounce a few times. You need to collect all three before they stop bouncing, which sounds a lot harder than it is. Since each Seed goes into the air before hitting the ground, you should have plenty of time to collect them all before the final one stops bouncing. Just be sure to take note of where they all are as they fly up above.

Deal damage to opponents while riding a wolf or boar (500)

Wolves and boars are found all around the map, such as in the section to the east of Shuffled Shrines. First, press the Jump button to get on the animal’s back, and once you do, ride it around until you see an enemy player. It helps if you use a long-range automatic weapon like an assault rifle so you can deal damage from afar. You need to deal 500 damage, which means it’ll take multiple separate enemies to finish this one. Thankfully, it’s cumulative, meaning you can earn progress across multiple matches.

Gain shields while emoting (1)

For this challenge, you’ll need a Shield Keg, which can be placed on the ground, spraying shields onto nearby players. Because of this, you’re able to use an Emote as the Keg sprays shields onto you.

Hold a Charge SMG at max charge for three seconds, then damage an opponent (1)

The Charge SMG is a newer weapon that players have gravitated toward thanks to its power. You can find it in chests or as floor loot, so once you do, be on the lookout for other enemy players or creatures like wolves. When you see them, hold down the Shoot button, which will charge the weapon. A little meter will show up, and once it’s full, fire away at the enemy. As long as it connects, you’ll earn credit for this one.

Open chests at Tilted Towers in a single match (3)

Ah, the old classic “open chests at X location” challenge. Thankfully, Tilted Towers is chock-full of chests, so land there and do your best to explore and open chests as quickly as possible since this area is often busy. Make sure you turn on Visualize Sound Effects to make it easier to find chests (and enemies).

Plant or summon a reality sapling 30 or more meters away from yourself (1)

This quest seems a lot harder than it is. After you get your hands on a Reality Sappling, go to the top of a building or a mountain and simply throw the item from the top. As long as you’re at least 30 meters away, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge.

All companions in Baldur’s Gate 3 and how to get them

There's a lot to see in Baldur's Gate 3, but you're not going to get far without a few good companions by your side. Thankfully, you'll stumble upon a wide assortment of NPCs that'd love nothing more than to accompany you on your journey. These friendly faces fill several different roles -- from mages and healers to archers and warriors, there's bound to be a companion that augments your playstyle.

Many of these companions also come with their own series of quests and unlockable skills, turning them into more than just faceless characters to help you in combat. In fact, you can spend hours unraveling their narratives, and depending on your actions, your companions might look very different at the end of Baldur's Gate 3 than when you first met them.

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.

All Charms and Trinkets in Lego Fortnite

Most things in Lego Fortnite are grounded in reality -- well, as much as they can be in a game where you are a little Lego man running around collecting resources and building entire villages by yourself. You slowly accumulate better gear as you craft new items and upgrade your existing facilities so you can venture further out and face tougher challenges.

There's some equipment that works a bit differently, namely your Trinkets and Charms. These little doodads can be crafted as you collect specific resources, they come in a range of rarities, and all of them give your character a specific buff that can be placed on your armor to add to your character. There's a lot of them out there to find and craft, so we've cataloged all the Charms and Trinkets in Lego Fortnite and what they do.
