Containment Specialist challenge guide

Deploy seismographs in Misty Meadows or Catty Corner (3)

The first challenge is straightforward. Simply visit any of the six locations on the map above (three at Misty Meadows and three at Catty Corner) and interact with them to deploy the seismographs. Once you’ve deployed six, you’ll complete the challenge.

Exterminate mini-Pufts with a pickaxe in Sludgy Swamp, Lazy Lake, or Retail Row (3)

Across Sludgy Swamp, Lazy Lake, and Retail Row are five mini-Pufts each — 15 in total. For this challenge, you simply need to destroy three of them, so once you find them, slash them with your harvesting tool. The best spot to visit is Lazy Lake, as a large group of them are practically on top of one another on the south side.

Retrieve mechanical parts by destroying cars (5)

Next up, you must destroy cars to collect mechanical parts. Each destroyed car drops one mechanical part, so you’ll need to destroy five total. For best results, visit Lazy Lake or the other main hubs to find cars all over the place. We advise using grenades to take them out easily, but your harvesting tool works too.

Place Ghostbusters signs in Dirty Docks, Holly Hedges, and Pleasant Park (3)

Across Dirty Docks, Holly Hedges, and Retail Row are three spots each — nine total — that allow you to place a Ghostbuster sign. For this challenge, you need to place three across any of the nine locations. Use the map above for details on the exact spots. We advise visiting Holly Hedges since the three locations are so close to one another.

Deploy a Ghost Trap (1)

At nearly every main hub is a spot for you to place a Ghost Trap. The easiest one to find is at Pleasant Park to the left of the pavilion in the center. Place one Ghost Trap and this challenge will be complete.

Fire Emblem Engage class guide: class skills, strengths, and weaknesses

Tactics games can be fairly complex thanks to them typically having a higher number of units to manage, level, and outfit. Fire Emblem Engage focuses down more on the combat side of the equation compared to Three Houses, so keeping your team scaling as the game goes on is vital. Instead of just having a linear experience and leveling system like most normal RPGs, Fire Emblem Engage continues the tradition of having a class system, where each unit can level up and change into different classes with different skills, strengths, and weaknesses. With dozens of options between Base, Advanced, and Special classes to pick from, it can be hard to know which ones are best. Let's run through some of the best options for each type.
