Unlocking the secret ending to Hitman 3 is actually pretty easy — it just requires a tiny bit of patience on your part. We’re encouraging you to do a straight playthrough of the game, then circle back to the secret ending. However, you can play as you want. Additionally, this article has a few spoilers about the secret ending, so be careful how quickly you read.

By the end of Hitman 3, you’ll find yourself circling Romania on a Providence train. Your target is the Constant, along with anyone on the train. Literally anyone on board that train is a viable target. That actually makes this level extremely fun because you can execute absolutely anyone without consequence. Regardless of whether or not you decide to murk everyone, you’ll eventually find yourself reaching the Constant, who will calmly accept his fate. But he will make you an offer, though. Just like previous Providence assassins, you’ll be offered to use the serum again and “surrender to your true nature.”

Agent 47 will initially reject the offer, and the game will leave you watching the Constant at a mirror with a plethora of options to kill him with. There will be a gun, fiber wire, and an ax at your disposal to take out the Constant. You can also use the serum to wipe the Constant’s memory, which is definitely a fun choice. But to get the secret ending, simply wait a minute. Seriously, just wait 60 to 70 seconds. This will trigger the secret ending. After about 60 seconds, the Constant will start talking again, and you’ll get the option to inject yourself again. Selecting this option will start the secret ending.

For those who want to see the secret ending themselves, stop reading here. But if anyone is interested in what the ending is, we do have some spoilers coming up about it.

If you do choose to inject yourself the second time it’s offered, 47 will pass out. Once you wake up, you’ll be somewhere very familiar to all Hitman fans. Welcome to a padded cell with a barred door. The constant will come and say some words to you, which sound just like the starting lines of the original game: “Wake up, my friend. It’s the dawn of a new day, and you have things to do.”

The last thing anyone wants to see when booting up a game like Modern Warfare 3 to head online with your friends is to be stopped by an error. Online games are susceptible to all types of problems beyond the player's control, leading to plenty of frustration and disappointment in a possibly ruined experience. While there are more substantial issues that can completely prevent you from playing, seeing the packet burst issue is almost worse because, while it does let you play, you will experience a ton of lag that makes the game essentially unplayable. If you've been struck by a packet burst error in Modern Warfare 3, here are some possible solutions so you can get back to fragging.
How to fix packet burst errors

While it could be simply an issue on the server side and not related to you at all, which you can check by looking at the Modern Warfare 3 server status here, there are a few things you can do to potentially fix the issue on your end.

Modern Warfare 3 Zombies: Mercenary Convoy guide
Soldiers in a car driving and shooting zombies.

The old format of Zombies has been left behind in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in favor of a more open-world, objective-based take on the undead survival game type. This time, you will squad up and drop into a map with specific objectives you can choose to complete to earn tons of XP, while also pushing the narrative forward and unlocking new, more difficult tasks to take on. The early-tier missions are generally very simple, but in Act 1, you will be given the objective to find and destroy a Mercenary Convoy somewhere on the map. This sounds easy enough on paper until you realize you have no idea where this convey is or how to find it. Every run in Zombies risks losing all your hard-earned progress, so we'll lead you to the Mercenary Convoy to take it out before the zombies even know you were there.
How to find the Mercenary Convoy

Your first challenge will be to find this Mercenary Convoy. The problem here is twofold: first is that it isn't marked on your map in any way, and second is that, being a convoy, it is mobile. Once you land, you and your team should find the nearest vehicle and head toward the center of the map. Depending on how the threat levels are on your particular map, you are looking for roads and highways that are around the medium-threat level zone. You will have to patrol these roads until you come across the convoy, which only consists of three vehicles. Once you are in range, it does appear on your map to let you know you've found it.

Modern Warfare 3 Zombies: tips and tricks for MWZ

The mega-popular Zombies mode has never undergone as massive of a restructuring as it has for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. What was originally a round-based, co-op survival mode where you and a team of four gradually powered up, expanded the map, and maybe tried to complete a challenging Easter egg story has become something more of a mix of Zombies and the new DMZ mode from last year's entry.

While there will be plenty that is familiar to Zombies veterans, such as Perk-a-Colas and mystery boxes, you won't be able to rely on your old tactics anymore. Surviving the new Zombies mode is a completely new ballgame in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, but these tips and tricks will help you and your squad survive threats both old and new.
