How to fast travel in Sonic Frontiers

Sonic is, and always has been, about going fast. Whether it is in his 2D or 3D games, running as fast as possible through stages to reach the end as the blue blur has always been the goal. With Sonic Frontiers, our favorite hedgehog is placed in a series of open zones far larger than anything he's explored prior. While these areas are designed to be run through and explored initially, you may eventually just want to get where you're going without having to run there.

What You Need

  • Get either the Elder Koco and/or Hermit Koco scroll

  • Locate the Elder Koco and/or Hermit Koco

As unintuitive as it might sound for a game about running, Sonic Frontiers does have a fast-travel system to let you skip across to various positions on the game's islands. This can help you finish off any lingering challenges or grab those last collectibles in a hurry. The thing is, this option isn't open to you right away, and there are specific requirements you need to meet before you can teleport yourself from place to place. Here's how you can unlock fast travel in Sonic Frontiers.

How to unlock fast travel in Sonic Frontiers

While not overly difficult to unlock, fast travel in Sonic Frontiers does have a few steps that need to be followed. Here's what you need to do.

Step 1: Collect Purple Coins. There's no specific amount needed, but the more you have, the easier it will be.

Step 2: Locate the fishing spot on that island. There's one per island, and they are not marked on the map.

Step 3: Unlock the Portal and talk to Big the Cat to learn how to fish.

Step 4: Pay Purple Coins to do the fishing mini-game until you reel in either an Elder Koco or Hermit Koco scroll, or both.

Step 5: Exit the fishing zone.

Step 6: Open up the map and hit the right bumper until you highlight the Fast travel option.

Step 7: Select either the Elder or Hermic Koco's location, depending on which scroll you have and where you want to go, and confirm your choice.

Step 8: You will need to repeat this process for each of the game's islands to unlock fast travel on them.

How to butcher Pals in Palworld
A palworld person sitting at a campfire in Palworld.

There's no shortage of morally grey things you can do in Palworld. From running your own sweatshop of Pals gathering resources to capturing and selling humans to Black Marketeers, almost nothing seems to be off the table in this game. While you usually want to build up a large collection of Pals to either help run your bases or help you in battle, sometimes you might just want to strip one of any value it might have at the cost of its life. This is a great, if not morbid, way to gather some extra items off a Pal you may not have much use for. In a sentence we never thought we'd say, here's how you can butcher your Pals in Palworld.
How to butcher Pals

Butchering Pals isn't something you can do with any old weapon in Palworld. No, you need a very special butchering tool, in this case, the Meat Cleaver. You can unlock this weapon in the Technology Tree once you hit level 12 and craft it with 5 Ingots, 20 Wood, and 5 Stone. Once your instrument is ready, you next need to prepare your victim.

How to kill Chargers in Helldivers 2
A soldier fighting a bile spewer in Helldivers 2.

If you thought Helldivers 2 would get any easier as you made it deeper into the game, think again. Even if you've unlocked most or all of the game's weapons, that doesn't mean a massive monster can't come out of nowhere and flatten you in mere seconds. The first time you encounter a Charger, that's probably what will happen.

These massive beasts may seem impossible to take down by themselves, but when you add in all the regular enemies that tend to surround them, not even a full squad of capable soldiers would stand a chance. We'll help you crack this monster's armor and stop any Charger dead in its tracks.
