How to get the alien suit in GTA Online

Grand Theft Auto Online is a chaotic playground filled with players constantly finding new ways to keep themselves entertained in the city of Los Santos. Street races, bank heists, and death-defying aerial stunt shows are all common occurrences in GTA Online, as one might expect from a game about characters living well outside the law. Of course, players aren’t always content to do what’s expected of them in the game’s Los Santos sandbox, and one of the most bizarre ways they’re breaking the mold is with GTA Online’s long-standing alien gang war.

Throughout 2020, players have taken to the streets of Los Santos garbed in purple and green alien costumes, taking on groups of opposing extraterrestrials or just beating other players down with baseball bats. While some players initially fought back against the space invaders by organizing alien-hunting groups, it’s clear by now that resistance is futile. With aliens now a persistent part of GTA Online’s landscape, here’s how to nab an alien suit of your own and get in on the fun.

Where to find the alien suit

There’s good news and bad news when it comes to getting an alien bodysuit in GTA Online. The good news is that they can be purchased from any normal clothing store. The bad news is that they’re extremely expensive.

Finding an alien suit in GTA Online is easy enough. Just head to any clothing store in the game (which you can find by following the T-shirt icon on your map) and go to the counter. Enter the shop menu, where you can search by category, and navigate to Outfits, then Arena War, where you’ll find two distinct items: the Green Martian Bodysuit and Purple Martian Bodysuit.

How to afford the alien suit

That’s the easy part. Actually affording your own alien bodysuit is another matter, as they each cost well over $300,000. There is a way to lower the price of the alien suits, and it’s by participating in Arena War missions. Arena War is a series of PvP vehicular combat encounters held in the Maze Bank Arena. Players can compete in destruction derbies there to win prizes, and playing this mode enough will eventually unlock a discount on the alien bodysuits.

If you’re just interested in joining GTA Online’s alien gang wars, this isn’t the way to go about it. Participating in Arena War is a far more costly endeavor than just purchasing the suits outright, and it takes a lot of time, but if you’ve already followed this path, just know that you’ll be getting a better deal when it comes time to don your alien suit.

Fortunately, there are plenty of other ways to make money in GTA Online. Playing at the casino, running time trials, pulling off heists, or just completing jobs will earn you enough money to purchase your alien bodysuit soon enough. With how often Rockstar Games just gives away free in-game cash, you may even end up earning the cost of a suit without lifting a finger.

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.

How to unlock all weapons in Hades 2
Hades 2 key art from its first trailer.

Hades 2's Melinoë is a very different main character from the first game's Zagreus in terms of personality and in how she fights. Being a witch, magic is core to her moveset, but she still wields all sorts of new weapons. You won't find the standard sword or spear here, as she starts off with just a witch's staff . You'll need to unlock the rest in traditional roguelike fashion. Each item requires you to gather up different materials, but most have some overlap so you will need to be selective about which one you craft first. We're still in the early access period, but for now, here are all the Nocturnal Arms in the game and how you can unlock them.
How to unlock every Nocturnal Arm
Ignoring the Witch's Staff, which you start with, there are four additional weapons to unlock.
Sister Blades
These fast, close-range melee daggers are the easiest to unlock and cost one Silver.
Umbral Flames
This is a medium-range weapon that prioritizes magic and fire attacks for three Silver and three Cinder.
Moonstone Axe
The heavy Moonstone Axe is your big, but slow damage dealer. It will cost you 15 Silver to pick up, so you will need to save up a bit.
Argent Skull
This si an explosive casting weapon that won't be available to unlock until you reach a certain point in the game that we won't spoil here. It will cost you two Glassrock and one Bronze to make.

Can you fix the Fortnite servers not responding error?
Nanner Ringer emote in Fortnite

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.
