How to get the final badge in Super Mario Bros. Wonder

Super Mario Bros. Wonder is overflowing with things to collect, secrets to uncover, and plenty of new mechanics to discover and use. Among the fresh additions to the franchise in this outing is its badge system, which allows you to select a perk of sorts at the beginning of a match. However, to use the badges, you’ll first need to find them throughout Super Mario Bros. Wonder‘s various challenges and Poplin Shops. When it comes to unlocking the final badge, though, you’ll have to put in quite a bit of extra work. Here’s what you’ll need to do to score the quirky “Sound Off?” badge, which has a pretty funny and unique action attached to it.

How to get the final badge

To get the final badge in Super Mario Bros. Wonder, you’ll need to unlock a very well-hidden secret final level called The Final-Final Test Badge Marathon. Based on our testing, unlocking this ultra-challenging stage requires you to meet the following criteria:

  • Collect every Wonder Seed
  • Collect every 10-flower coin
  • Grab the top of every flagpole
  • Complete all other Special World stages

This secret final level will test the mettle of even platformer veterans, so be prepared for quite a challenge on your quest to score the final badge. You’ll have to make use of everything you’ve learned throughout all of Super Mario Bros. Wonder‘s previous levels and pull it all off with extreme precision. As a reward, though, the “Sound Off?” badge will be yours.

So what exactly does the “Sound Off?” badge do? Well, it’s not going to provide you with any useful abilities that help you complete a level. Instead, it makes all the sound effects in the game even wackier than before by changing them entirely to a cappella versions. In other words, if funny mouth noises get you laughing, you’ll love this one. Otherwise, you’re probably better off sticking with badges that can actually help you.

Multiplayer games began as purely local events. If you wanted to play with, or against, your friends, there was no other option than to get together either at someone's house or, if you're going even further back in time, at a local arcade. While playing locally is still a great way to play, it isn't always an option. Online multiplayer is not only more convenient most of the time, but it has become the norm for nearly all modern multiplayer games.

In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you might encounter the Gloom-Borne Illness quest, which requires you to find Wild Greens. However, there isn't actually an item called "Wild Greens," making this quest particularly tricky to complete. In this guide, we'll show you where to find Wild Greens in Tears of the Kingdom.
Where to find Wild Greens

The most important thing to note with this quest is the item you need is actually the Sundelion. The game is purposely vague, making it difficult to know what the actual item you need is. These items are found in various locations around Hyrule, but the most consistent way to find them is to visit a Sky Island around the following coordinates: -2,184, 0966, 1637.

How to get the Thunderbolt of Zeus in Fortnite
Thunderbolt of Zeus

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 is underway and has brought with it some significant changes to the battle royale map that should shake up things quite a lot. This season is all about ancient gods descending onto the map, which is quite obvious by its multiple mythical locations like Mount Olympus and the Underworld. But these new landing spots aren't the only thing the gods have brought with them to Fortnite, as players can also get their hands on godly new items like the Wings of Icarus and Thunderbolt of Zeus. In this guide, we'll tell you where to find the latter and how it works.
How to get the Thunderbolt of Zeus and how it works
You can find the Thunderbolt of Zeus by defeating Zeus at Mount Olympus or by searching in Olympus Chests or Underworld Chests. It can also rarely be found in standard and rare chests.

This powerful lightning-based item can seriously dish out the hurt — provided you can use it in a situation where you won't be easily shot out of the sky. By pressing the fire button, you leap into the sky to begin unleashing a series of three massive lightning bolts on foes beneath you, with the first two bolts fired out rapidly and the final one a bit slower. You'll only get a total of three charges with this devastating weapon, so you'll want to be certain you make the most of each use and only let loose with it when you feel confident you can wrap up a kill.
