How to acquire Blade in Fortnite

Unfortunately, there is only one way to get your hands on Blade and his cosmetics in Fortnite — and that is by purchasing various bundles (or individual cosmetics) with V-Bucks. Head to the Item Shop by tabbing over to the right from the main menu to view the options. You’ll find Blade under the Special Offers section of the shop. The most expensive option is the Blade bundle, which comes with all things Blade, including an emote and outfit. Here’s a breakdown of that bundle:

Blade bundle — 2,300 V-Bucks

  • Blade — Outfit
  • Sword of the Daywalker — Back Bling
  • Sword of the Daywalker — Harvesting tool
  • Dayflier — Glider
  • Daywalker’s Kata — Emote

In total, this will cost you around $19.99 to grab with real money. Or, if you’ve got some V-Bucks lying around, you can pay the difference by purchasing some of the V-Bucks bundles from the store. Alternatively, you can get your hands on a less expensive Blade bundle that comes with fewer items:

Blade — 2,000 V-Bucks

  • Blade — Outfit
  • Sword of the Daywalker — Back Bling
  • Sword of the Daywalker — Harvesting tool

You can also acquire some of the cosmetics individually. Daywalker’s Kata will set you back 300 V-Bucks, while the Dayflier glider costs 1,200 V-Bucks. If you’re short on V-Bucks, the best way to get them without spending real money is to level up your battle pass. If you complete the entire battle pass for this season, you’ll earn 1,500 V-Bucks, which will put you closer to getting your hands on the latest Blade goodies.

How to level up battle pass and earn V-Bucks

Leveling up the battle pass is the best way to earn V-Bucks if you don’t want to spend real money. You’ll get 100 V-Bucks when you reach levels 4, 12, 19, 26, 31, 41, 47, 52, 59, 65, 70, 78, 88, 92, and 99, for a possible 1,500 in total. The best way to level up the battle pass is by completing weekly challenges, which reward you with 25,000 XP to upwards of 50,000 XP. You don’t have to complete them all, but the more you finish, the more XP you’ll gain. Each week, we cover many of the new challenges that appear throughout the season, so make sure you check in every Thursday for the latest tips and strategies for getting through the tougher challenges.

As you level up the battle pass, you’ll also gain access to other fun cosmetics — most of which are Marvel themed for this season. These are things like emotes, outfits, weapon skins, gliders, and more.

Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded has me optimistic about the shooter’s future
Characters from Warzone 2.0 in the ranked mode.

Since Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0's launch, Activision has slowly made improvements to the shooter, with each season being more fun than the last. It's been a slow burn, but with the launch of Season 3 Reloaded, Warzone 2.0 finally feels like it's in a decent spot. There's still much to improve upon, but given the sheer number of fixes and quality-of-life features that have been added with the latest season, I'm finally optimistic about the future of this game.
Ranked is surprisingly fun

The most notable addition to Season 3 Reloaded is Ranked, a mode that has been highly requested since the original Warzone. This features a robust ranking system that gives players a greater incentive to improve and perform well, while also adding a much more competitive feel. Since the original Warzone days, there has always been a lack of incentive to improve. Sure, winning a match is a rush, but after pouring hundreds of hours into the game, it's easy to get bored. With Warzone Ranked, climbing the ranks places you into different categories, from Bronze all the way to Iridescent and Top 250, while also yielding cosmetic rewards along the way. Each subsequent ranking places you into slightly more skilled lobbies, adding a bit more challenge as you climb.

How to find the Fifth Sage in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
A sage grabbing ganon by the throat.

For as open and freeform as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is, even allowing you to skip essentially every quest in the game and go straight to the final boss, you will be missing a ton by doing so. At the very least, most players will want to complete all the main quests before marching into the final encounter, which will take many hours. One quest is taking some adventurers a long time to complete, not due to its difficulty, but because they have no idea how to complete it.

The Fifth Sage quest is one of the most enigmatic in the entire game in what you're supposed to do to complete it. You're only given a single clue, and it's not a very helpful one at that.
