Where to find excavation camps in Fortnite

While Fortnite chapter 4, season 2 may be winding down in preparation for a new season, Week 12 quests are still here to help you earn a bit more XP for any remaining cosmetics you may want from the battle pass. One of this week’s quests requires you to visit three excavation camps on the battle royale map — and while it may sound like a lot of traveling, this trio of camps can actually be accessed from one another fairly quickly. Here’s the best way to find and visit the three excavation camps.

Where to find excavation camps

All three excavation camps are located down the center of the map, and you can see their exact locations on your in-game map while the quest is active. Because of the fact that they’re all relatively close to one another, you shouldn’t have any issues knocking the quest out in a single match — so long as you don’t run into a particularly deadly squad along the way.

To improve your chances, you should likely land at the uppermost excavation camp first, as the bottom one is at a lower altitude, which could give approaching teams higher ground on you as you’re moving north. As you’re moving south to reach the second camp, you’ll have to decide whether you want to chance pushing through the often busy Anvil Square or perhaps sneak around the outskirts. If you landed at the camp, you likely noticed it has almost no loot, so it may not be a bad idea to hit a few houses in Anvil Square to stock up as needed.

Lastly, make your way southeast to the final camp so that you can earn completion for the quest, which will grant you a nice bit of XP. This will hopefully help you buy any last-minute battle pass cosmetics you were hoping to score before Season 3 begins late next week.

Is Stardew Valley cross-platform?
Stardew Valley Multiplayer Fishing

Stardew Valley is a game made by just one person, but it has seen more success than most games made by dozens, or even hundreds, of people. It's even one of Digital Trends' top 50 video games of all time. Since its release in 2016, the game has been updated regularly with new features and content to keep its avid fans coming back. This includes an online multiplayer component that allows you and up to three friends to hang out on each other's farms. And with the recent trend of games allowing players on different platforms to join together, you may wonder if Stardew Valley offers cross-platform functionality. Here's everything we know about cross-platform support in Stardew Valley.
Is Stardew Valley cross-platform?
Stardew Valley does not offer cross-platform support, meaning you can't play online multiplayer between any of the systems the game is on. So if you want to team up with some friends, make sure you all are playing on the same platform, such as the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, or PC. Also be aware that whoever starts a multiplayer game is saving that shared world locally, meaning no one else can reenter that world without the host present.

The sad fact of the matter is there doesn't seem to be any indication that crossplay will come to Stardew Valley. The game's official Reddit still lists it as not being supported, and there was only one mention of it by the developer on Twitter back in 2018, when he responded to a question asking if crossplay would come to the game. He replied, "Unfortunately, there will not be crossplay. Apparently, the technical barriers are very high. It's still something I really want to add and I promise to look into it more closely, but first priority is getting the update out there." This was many years ago, and there has been no further information about cross-platform play since, so it seems very unlikely that we will see support for this functionality come to Stardew Valley.

How to get a gun in Another Crab’s Treasure
Kril has a gun

Another Crab's Treasure no doubt looks like a kid-friendly game, but hiding beneath its charming and cute exterior is a challenging soulslike experience that can test the mettle of genre veterans. Those who either can't or don't want to engage with such intense difficulty throughout this underwater adventure can make great use of a variety of assists. Among these is a rather shocking, but hilarious option that can completely negate nearly all of the game's challenge while providing some laughs along the way. Here's how to get a gun in Another Crab's Treasure.
How to get a gun
To give yourself a gun in Another Crab's Treasure, head over to the Settings menu. Navigate to Assist Mode at the bottom of the menu, then scroll to the bottom once more to a setting called Give Kril a Gun. Toggle this on, then back out and resume your game to find that Kril now has a massive pistol on his back in place of a shell.

This new gun on your back provides you with more than just a funny visual, though -- it actually allows you to shoot and kill any enemy in a single hit, nearly eliminating all of the challenge from the game. Additionally, if you're after trophies or achievements, the first time you shoot a crab with the gun will also unlock "This Kills the Crab."
