  • Visit the Slums

This is especially true if you're trying to earn the game's coveted Boom Chat Kalaka platinum trophy. To earn this trophy, you need to dunk a basketball into a bucket. This is an easy task, but it isn't exactly clear how to get the job done — let us help.

How to dunk the basketball

The basketball and bucket necessary for earning the Boom Chat Kalaka trophy are located in the Slums, the first inhabited area you'll come across early in your adventure through Stray. You'll return here a handful of times throughout the first half of the game, giving you multiple chances to earn the trophy. If you find yourself too far in the story and unable to return to the Slums, don't worry too much, as you can load up earlier chapters and explore the area to your heart's content.

The Slums is an underground dystopian city filled with robots to speak to and many quests to tackle, but you won't have to worry about any of that to earn the Boom Chat Kalaka trophy. Instead, you need to head to the open area where you first met the Guardian robot wearing a red robe, easily identifiable by some nearby trees and a bright light shining down.

Facing the Guardian, turn right and look for a basketball sitting atop the nearby stairs. There is a white bucket embedded in the ground below, and you'll need to hit the ball into it. Slowly walk straight at the ball and lightly tap it with your head to send it down and into the bucket, which will instantly reward you with the Boom Chata Kalaka trophy.

Where to find excavation camps in Fortnite
Fortnite character gliding towards an excavation point

While Fortnite chapter 4, season 2 may be winding down in preparation for a new season, Week 12 quests are still here to help you earn a bit more XP for any remaining cosmetics you may want from the battle pass. One of this week's quests requires you to visit three excavation camps on the battle royale map — and while it may sound like a lot of traveling, this trio of camps can actually be accessed from one another fairly quickly. Here's the best way to find and visit the three excavation camps.
Where to find excavation camps
All three excavation camps are located down the center of the map, and you can see their exact locations on your in-game map while the quest is active. Because of the fact that they're all relatively close to one another, you shouldn't have any issues knocking the quest out in a single match — so long as you don't run into a particularly deadly squad along the way.

To improve your chances, you should likely land at the uppermost excavation camp first, as the bottom one is at a lower altitude, which could give approaching teams higher ground on you as you're moving north. As you're moving south to reach the second camp, you'll have to decide whether you want to chance pushing through the often busy Anvil Square or perhaps sneak around the outskirts. If you landed at the camp, you likely noticed it has almost no loot, so it may not be a bad idea to hit a few houses in Anvil Square to stock up as needed.

Kraven the Hunter appears in Marvel's Spider-Man 2.

Insomniac Games showed off a new gameplay trailer for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 during Sony's May 2023 PlayStation Showcase. The action-packed clip showed off its villain, the iconic Kraven the Hunter, but it didn't give the game a release date. It's still only scheduled for fall 2023.

The new trailer gave us our closest glimpse at Sony's upcoming release we've seen yet. It begins with a very cinematic clip showing off classic Spider-Man villain Kraven the Hunter. From there, we flash-forward a bit to New York City, where we see Peter Parker and Miles Morales working together to save the city. Parker has a fancy new black suit with a lot of wild powers. In the trailer, we see multiple black spider arms coming out of it and slamming enemies.
