Mario and friends (and enemies) are no strangers to picking up just about any sport there is and putting a friendly and chaotic spin on the experience. Unlike more realistic sports games, which focus mostly on matches, maybe some challenge modes, and multiplayer, Mario sports games have all attempted to add in some sort of progression to make playing alone a bit more fun. Some games have full-on campaigns, while Mario Strikers: Battle League has a variety of cups you can progress through for new rewards, also unlocking new cups and modes in the process.

What You Need

  • Beat all five of the standard cups on normal difficulty

Mario Strikers: Battle League's cups are the main single-player components in the game. Each one is unique, offering a new challenge for you to overcome and grow your skills as a player and team manager. They're not only great for building up your skills and learning the ropes of this brutal soccer experience, but they give you plenty of Coins as rewards to spend on new gear. However, not all these new cups and modes are open right from the start. The hardest challenges are kept locked away until you meet a few requirements. Here's how to unlock every cup and mode in Mario Strikers: Battle League.

Sheep carry guns in Palworld.

We all know that Palworld is so much more than just "Pokemon with guns." Even ignoring all the crafting, breeding, and survival aspects, there are way more than just regular guns to unlock and make. You have melee options, spears, bows, handguns, explosives, and more at your disposal. If you want to keep up with the difficulty curve and hunt down the higher-level Pals, and especially the Legendaries, then you need the strongest weapons in your arsenal. Here are all the weapons currently in Palworld and how you can unlock and craft them.
How to unlock and craft every weapon
Weapons in Palworld unlock as you level up, but you don't just get them automatically. You will still need to gather all the resources and craft them yourself. Here are all the weapons you unlock in order as you level up, plus the recipe to make them.

How to mod weapons in Fortnite

It seems like each week something new is added to Fortnite. It could be something as simple as skins to limited-time modes, mechanics, and more. One thing you can always count on being there is the weapons, although even those do cycle in and out of the game. Normally, weapons would only be differentiated by their rarity tier, but now you can use new weapon mods to give your favorite gun a more personal feel during a match. That said, finding and actually installing these mods isn't easy to figure out in the heat of a match, so we'll give you the rundown on how to mod your weapons before your next drop from the battle bus.
How weapon mods work

Fortnite's weapon mods come in a variety of types, such as scopes, larger magazines, barrels, and underbarrels. In total there are currently 11 mods you can pick from across those categories, however, you can only install one in each, assuming you can afford it. Here's a full list as of the time of writing:

How to unlock the Holiday Boxy outfit in Lego Fortnite

You can count on basically every big online game to have some sort of holiday event going on. Despite Lego Fortnite only just releasing this month, it is still getting in on the holiday fun at least a little bit. There are no major additions, modes, or special events, however, you can get yourself a cool new Holiday Boxy outfit for your character. While free and easy to get, it does take some time and commitment. Since you've been so good all year long, we'll fill you in on how to get the Holiday Boxy outfit before it disappears.
How to get the Holiday Boxy outfit

This festive outfit is part of the Winterfest event Epic Games is hosting in Fortnite. Because it's primarily focused on that game, not just Lego Fortnite, this skin can be used in both games, like most others. Don't worry, you don't have to do any Fortnite challenges to unlock it if you aren't a fan of that game. To unlock Holiday Boxy, all you need to do is launch Fortnite and go into the Quest menu. Navigate to the Daily Gifts section and look through the list of available gifts to claim the Holiday Boxy outfit. New gifts are added each day regardless of whether or not you log in every single day. The only restriction is that you must log in and claim this reward during Winterfest 2023, which will end on January 2, 2024. So long as you log in once before then, you are able to claim all the free gifts.
