All weapon Passive Abilities in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Thanks to the weapon durability system returning in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom from Breath of the Wild, you will be swapping out weapons all the time. At first, you will only be concerned with having something to defend yourself with, but eventually, you will acquire a nice stash of tools to dispatch your many foes. At this point, you will start comparing damage numbers, but that’s not the only factor you should consider when deciding which weapon to wield. Passive Abilities are granted to some weapons that give them a special trait that can make them more useful than they seem at first. To better understand your arsenal, here are all the Passive Abilities in Tears of the Kingdom and what they do.

All Passive Abilities

Zelda with the Master Sword in Tears of the Kingdom.

Passive Abilities are buffs that a specific weapon can come with to give it an edge of some form. You can see the name of a Passive Ability under a weapon when you’re quick-switching, or examining a weapon in your inventory. There are 15 possible Passive Abilities in Tears of the Kingdom that are well worth learning about. Also know that if you fuse a weapon with a Passive Ability, it will transfer over to your new fused weapon, so don’t worry about losing any buffs by fusion.

All Ancestor Skill locations in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
An Ikran flies towards a ship in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

After being raised by humans up until the start of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, your Na'vi has a lot to learn about where they come from and their lost heritage. Part of that is learning how to actually survive and navigate Pandora, but another major aspect is learning new skills. You have your standard five skill trees to invest points into, as well as a set of 12 Ancestor Skills that you can't get by normal means. These skills are far more meaningful when it comes to adding new gameplay options, and can only be obtained by hunting down specific plants to connect with on the map. It's a big world out there, Na'vi, so call your ikran (a dragon-like creature) and we'll guide you through the wilds to the location of every Ancestor Skill.
Where to find all Ancestor Skills
You will get the first Ancestor Skill early on in the game as part of the main story, which unlocks a short double-jump ability. The remaining 11 are completely optional as to whether or not you go out of your way to find them. We recommend waiting until you get your ikran before going after any skills other than the first as the ability to fly will not only make the process infinitely easier, but some skills can't be reached without it.

1. Eject
Eject makes short work of those dangerous RDA soldiers piloting power armor suits by letting you rip them right out of the cockpit. You do have to get close enough to do it, though, so be careful.
2. Drop Impact
Melee attacks are already strong considering you're a giant Na'vi, but you can make them downright deadly with this skill. Any jumping attack you do gets a damage multiplier, up to a maximum of 3, depending on how fast you're running when you melee in the air. As a nice little cherry on top, any nearby enemies also get staggered when you pull off this move.
3. Deeper Connection
Get in touch with your ikran and strengthen your bond, which gives it more stamina for whatever reason.
4. Soft Landing
Falling to your death is a real concern on Pandora. You're constantly climbing trees, mountains, and even floating islands. While it won't save you from a fall from the latter, Soft Landing lets you slide after a long fall to avoid breaking a leg.

A Na'vi riding an Ikron in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

You may be a native Na'vi in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, but having been raised by the  Resources Development Administration (RDA), your character is as new to the alien world od Pandora as any human would be. That, of course, means you'll be starting from scratch to build up your skills and abilities to not only survive the natural flora and fauna, but also fight back against the invading RDA forces. Skill points are not as easy to come by in this game as others, and after the first one or two skills in a tree, they become quite expensive to unlock. There are a lot of systems and mechanics you can impact with upgrades, but there are certain ones that universally stand as the best investments. If you're ready to learn the ways of the Na'vi in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, these are the skills that will help you remember your roots.
The best skills in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

The skill tree is separated into five categories that each relate to different aspects of surviving and thriving on Pandora. These consist of Survivor, Warrior, Hunter, Maker, and Rider. Rider is initially hidden and only unlocks after you get your ikran as part of the main story.

All Marko’s Memories locations in Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man perched on a balcony.

The opening sequence of Spider-Man 2 is a massive, technical showpiece of an encounter with the iconic villain Sandman, aka Flint Marko. Despite Peter and Miles thwarting the villain's rampage in the opening hours, his impact on the map -- and the game at large -- is far from over. Even after being sent away to prison on The Raft, Sandman has left behind mysterious crystals that are causing trouble all across the city. These become one of the many side activities you can participate in between main missions for some extra rewards like City Tokens. While they are all optional, completing each of these Marko's Memories activities does uncover a narrative about the troubled man and someone close to him that is well worth exploring. Besides, you will need to clean them all up if you want to fully complete the game anyway, so let's detail where you can find each of Marko's Memories in Spider-Man 2.
Where to find Marko's Memories

There are 14 crystals scattered across the various boroughs of Spider-Man 2's New York, but just like with other collectibles like Prowler Stashes, you will have to wait for some to unlock as you make story progress. Additionally, the 14th and final memory won't be available until you've gotten all the others, and it leads to the quest's final objective. These will show up as an orange crystal on your map, but you can also spot them from all the sand they create around the area. When you approach one, you will need to fight a few waves of sand enemies before you can grab the crystal, crack it open, and hear the memory inside. Here's which borough you should be looking for them in, and how many there are in each.
