How to unlock all Words of Power in Marvel’s Midnight Suns:

Marvel's Midnight Suns is a game of two parts. The first, and most easily demonstrated, is the tactics gameplay. You and your team of heroes will go out on various missions using cards in a turn-based battle system to combat Lilith and thwart her evil plot. The other half of the game takes place between these missions in your hub area called the Abbey. Here you can interact with your team, find items, pet some animals, and explore the grounds for secrets.



What You Need

  • Find all elemental rods

  • Fight Venom for the first time

While exploring, you will come across some areas you just can't access. These can be blocked by simple doors, broken bridges, or, cracked walls. Forget the fact that you're a superhero, and also friends with the likes of Iron Man, Captain Marvel, and Spider-Man, who could all easily bypass these for you. The only way to get around them is to learn all four Words of Power. Here's how you can unlock them all in Marvel's Midnight Suns.

How to get the Reveal Word of Power

Step 1: Collect all the elemental rods to get a Moon Seal.

Step 2: Use the Moon Seal to unlock a Blood Door next to the Standing Stones to begin a challenge.

Step 3: Win by surviving four turns and defeating 16 enemies to unlock Reveal.

How to get the Purify Word of Power

Purify is more of a steppingstone power than anything else, as it simply removes vines in a few spaces. However, it's quite necessary for unlocking your next Word of Power and can't be skipped.

Step 1: Go to the Valley of the Winds and into Hiram Shaw's Church.

Step 2: Use your Words of Power to access the backyard area and inspect the ward.

Step 3: Progress through the story until you have met and battled Venom and collected a sample.

Step 4: Visit each of the three Witch Covens and collect the item from each.

Step 5: Give them to Agatha and then collect the Moon Seal.

Step 6: Use the Moon Seal at the next Blood Gate to start the next challenge and unlock Purify.

How to get the Break Word of Power

The final Word of Power is Break. This word will let you take down any cracked and damaged walls blocking your path, fully opening up the remainder of the map.

Step 1: Speak to Agatha.

Step 2: Collect the three Moon Seal shards and a flower and bring them back to Agatha.

Step 3: Take the completed Moon Seal to the last Blood Gate.

Step 4: Complete the last, and hardest, challenge to unlock your last Word of Power.

How to play left-handed in Counter-Strike 2
A character holding a gun in the left hand in Counter Strike 2.

Unless you're a lefty, you may not notice that every shooter, including Counter-Strike 2, always has you playing as a right-handed character. While it may not seem like a big deal, it just feels awkward for people who primarily use their left hands to get used to seeing games that way, especially when previous versions of this game allowed you to play as a southpaw. And, if you're playing at the highest level, swapping hands can make peaking corners much easier. While it was missing for almost the first year of the game, Counter -trike 2 has finally allowed players to swap hands and play however is more natural and comfortable for them. Here is how to set your preferred handedness in Counter-Strike 2 and swap it on the fly.
How to swap handedness

If you want to set your character to always play either left- or right-handed, the best way is to set your preferred handedness in the settings. Open up your settings and go into Game > Item and scroll down to the Preferred Viewmodel Left/Right Handedness option. The drop-down menu will let you choose between right and left so you will always default to that view.

How to change bot difficulty in Counter-Strike 2
A team groups up in Counter-Strike 2.

There's no denying that Counter-Strike 2 is one of the most hardcore and competitive FPS games on PC. One wrong move in this game can force you to wait out the rest of the round and leave your team a player down.

With such a long history and dedicated playerbase, the skill ceiling is intimidatingly high and you may not be able to keep up with those you're matched up against. Bot matches give you a chance to practice your skills and strategies in a less-stressful environment, though the challenge they provide may not be exactly right for you. There is a way to tweak them so you can find the perfect targets, but it's not very intuitive.

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.
