Why is The Title such a good SMG?

The Title is an interesting new addition to the weapon Pool in Destiny 2. It’s a Void Energy SMG with a high rate of fire, and a one-of-a-kind perk called Classy Contender. This perk is activated by final blows, and regenerates a portion of your class ability energy, the fuel that enables Hunters to disappear with dodges, Warlocks to drop healing aura, and Titans to form barricades. These are powerful abilities that Guardians will build entire loadouts around, and being able to reuse them with great frequency can have major ramifications in both PVE and PVP. Add a second, randomized perk slot, and The Title can be an outstanding weapon in skilled hands.

How to unlock The Title

In order to earn The Title you must engage with The Guardian Games, the annual contest that pits Hunters, Warlocks, and Titans against one another to see who can earn and redeem the most medals, primarily earned by completing special bounties.

Start by visiting Eva Levante in The Tower. She’s hard to miss, standing front and center when you load into the central area. Speak to her, and she will give you the Best in Class quest, with a series of objectives intended to introduce you to the key components of the Guardian Games. She’ll give you a snazzy class item to wear and ask you to purchase one of her Contender Cards.

Next, you need to collect 10 laurels and some medallions. These are incredibly easy to collect. Head into any strike. Any enemy you kill with a class ability or any boss enemy will drop medallions, provided you are wearing your Guardian Games-themed class item. Medallions will accrue as you complete activities, and clearing one strike will be plenty for this step. Once you have your laurels and medallion, return to Eva Levante in the Tower. She will reward your amazingly minor efforts with the Medallion Case, an item that appears in your quest inventory to hold a limited number of Laurels and Medals. Walk to the white structure behind Eva and find a button corresponding to your class of guardian to turn in your medals, then return to Eva and speak to her once again.

Now, visit Zavala at his usual haunt near the edge of the tower. He will give you a new quest called Medallion Battalion, and unlock the Guardian Games: Recreational playlist. Launch that playlist from the tower map, and complete whatever activity it puts you into. Talk to Zavala again to let him know of your success, and he will assign you another new mission, and unlock the Guardian Games: Training playlist.

Finally, you can return to Eva and complete the Best in Class quest. She will give you her thanks and, more importantly, The Title as a token of appreciation. If you aren’t in love with the version of The Title she gives you, you can farm the gun by continuing to collect and turn in Medallions. Higher-tier Medallions like Gold and Platinum have an increased chance to award The Title when turned in. Each new drop of the gun will have a randomized second perk, so there is sure to be a version that matches your playstyle.

How to show all collectibles in Alan Wake 2 with the Mayor Setter Charm
Mayor Setter

There are a lot of collectibles to find in Alan Wake 2, so you're probably wondering if there's a way to show them all on your map. The answer is yes, but only when having the Mayor Setter Charm equipped, which you can't obtain until pretty late in the game by visiting Mayor Setter himself. When that time comes, you may be shocked to find that Mayor Setter is actually a dog. Less shocking, however, is that you'll probably want to pet him.

Luckily, in addition to being a pleasant experience, petting this political canine will accomplish multiple useful things. For starters, you'll earn the trophy or achievement called "The Nice Things in Life," which marks one more thing off your list for 100% completion. But perhaps most importantly, Mayor Setter will bestow upon you the aforementioned Mayor Setter Charm. When wearing this charm in one of your charm slots, you'll be able to spot the locations of basically any collectible on the map, making tracking everything down significantly easier without a guide.
How to get the Mayor Setter Charm and show all collectibles on the map
Mayor Setter will spawn in the game in Return 6 after you've spoken with your colleagues in the police station and selected to continue exploring instead of passing the point of no return. At this point, you can return to your car and drive to Watery to find that Mayor Setter is sitting on the stage inside Suomi Hall where you can interact with him to earn the Mayor Setter Charm, which you can then equip to show all unfound collectibles on the map.

How to run the bases at Big Apple Ballers Stadium in Spider-Man 2
Peter and Miles leap in the air in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is bigger, bolder, and better in nearly every way compared to its two predecessors, offering new and expansive sections of New York City to explore during your quest for 100% completion. But if you're also looking to earn every trophy the game has to offer to earn the coveted Platinum, you've probably noticed a bronze trophy called "Home Run!" that asks you to run the bases at Big Apple Ballers Stadium. You don't have to hit a homer to score this trophy, but you do need to take a lap around the bases, so we'll tell you where to find Big Apple Ballers Stadium below so you can start living out your baseball legend dreams.
Where to find Big Apple Ballers Stadium
Big Apple Ballers Stadium is located in Downtown Brooklyn, which can be found at the very bottom of the southeast portion of the map. While it's a little difficult to make out the stadium on the map, you'll definitely be able to recognize it in-game as you swing closer, as it's quite a large stadium located not too far from the amusement park you visit as part of the story.

Of course, finding the stadium is only part of the equation for getting the Home Run! trophy. Once you reach the stadium, make your way to home plate and then run the bases in a counter-clockwise fashion (home, first, second, third, home) as if you'd just hit a home run.
