How to emote at stone statues

There are two sets of stone statues you can use to complete this week’s challenge, and both are located at Colossal Coliseum — on the north and south sides. Use the map above for reference (per Fortnite.gg). The statues are found at each entrance and are indicated by large horses. Simply stand between them and use any emote to complete the challenge.

Despite Colossal Coliseum being busy in general and now serving as the location of a new challenge, you can still easily complete it without worrying too much about getting taken out. That’s because you can emote very quickly, so as long as you make a beeline to this location, you’ll likely survive. To emote, hold down on the D-pad and then select any of the options that appear on the wheel. Once you do, you’ll complete the challenge and earn 20,000 XP.

To be frank, the toughest part about this challenge is getting it to appear. With season 5, you must complete certain challenges before doing others, and they come in stages. In other words, players are prevented from completing multiple stages sequentially in the same match, since you have to back out to the main menu to get the next challenge to appear. For this particular challenge, you must first complete stage one, which requires you to deal 200 damage while in the water. It’s not as tough as it sounds since damage dealt to NPCs counts.

We don’t have a dedicated guide for that, but the best way to go about doing it is to land by the IO guards and shoot them while you’re in the water. A great spot to attempt that is the little lake with the island just north of Retail Row, as there’s plenty of loot around there and an IO guard spawn location right by the water. Once you deal 200 damage, you’ll complete the challenge, so back out to the main menu before attempting the one for using an emote at stone statues. From there, you can head straight for Colossal Coliseum to quickly grab 20,000 XP for very little effort.

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best landing spot.

The best Talents in Hogwarts Legacy

As you would expect from a witch or wizard still going through school in Hogwarts Legacy, your created character still has a lot to learn in the wizarding world. Thankfully you don't have to go to class in order to expand your arsenal of magical abilities thanks to the Talent system. Talents may as well just be called skills since they function just like skills do in any other RPG. However, Hogwarts Legacy is the kind of RPG that packs tons of Talents into it, forcing you to pick and choose which ones you want to invest your precious points into. While some will depend on what type of witch or wizard you want to play as, there are a few that stand above the rest regardless of how you like to play. Here are 10 of the best Talents in Hogwarts Legacy.
How to get Talents

First, you won't gain access to your Talent screen until you beat the very early quest called "Jackdaw's Rest," and then you won't begin to accumulate any Talent Points until level 5 and onward. Hogwarts Legacy has a level cap of 40, meaning that you can earn a maximum of 35 Talent Points. Since there are a total of 48 Talents, you won't be able to get them all on a single character. There is also no way to refund Talent Points once used, so make sure you spend them wisely.

How to unlock augments in Fortnite
Fortnite

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible.
