Hunt prey as a wily fox in striking hunting game Rev

Warframe’s Tennocon 2020 is cancelled, but Operation Scarlet Spear goes forward

Warframe is having a big year, but that big year will involve annual gathering Tennocon taking place online rather than in-person.

It's no secret that a lot of people are playing the new free-to-play Call of Duty: Warzone battle royale. As reported yesterday, it already has 15 million players. Warzone has a fun Battle Royale twist, the Gulag, where players go on death to fight in 1v1 matches for a shot at rejoining the fight. While you're waiting for your chance to fight in the Gulag you stand on a balcony over the match to watch the current duel. From this balcony, you can throw rocks at combatants for a single, pitiful point of "nonlethal" damage. However, players are already finding a way to kill with it, both due to an apparent bug and by sheer creativity. Here's what a rock normally does:
