Fallout 76 perks: Mysterious Stranger, Bear Arms, Green Thumb – all the perks revealed so far

Even with the addition of online multiplayer, a few things in the Fallout universe remain constant: Vaultboy, excessive radiation, and most importantly for this page, perks. Here are our picks for the best perks in Fallout 76 so far.

Perks in Fallout 76 work a little differently than in previous games. First off, your S.P.E.C.I.A.L skills all start at 1, and you gain a point to add to a skill of your choice with each level up.

Then, depending on the level of your skill, you can equip one or more “perk cards” to gain powerful passive benefits. More perk cards are unlocked as you continue to level up, and you can combine duplicates with each other to create more powerful versions of each card.

Pokemon Go Egg Chart: all Pokemon that hatch from 2km, 5km, 7km and 10km eggs

Pokemon Go Egg Chart: all Pokemon that hatch from 2km, 5km, 7km and 10km eggs

One of the most reliable ways to get your hands on new Pokemon in Pokemon Go is through egg hatching. But what Pokemon can you expect from each type of eggs?

Unlike over in the main Nintendo console based Pokemon games, you don’t have to breed Pokemon to get your hands on Pokemon eggs. In fact, there’s no breeding mechanic at all. Instead, you’ll be rewarded eggs through visiting Pokestops throughout the world or through being given gifts by your friends. Hatching eggs is a great way to farm candy and actually has a good chance of providing better Pokemon with better stats than you might find out in the wild. Some of the rarer, best Pokemon in Pokemon Go are most easily obtained through hatching eggs, which is handy. If a Pokemon shiny form is in the game, there’s a chance for shiny when an egg hatches, too.

Pokemon Eggs are basically a mystery draw: you have no idea what you’re going to hatch until it hatches, though there are four different types of egg in the game and that’ll give you a broad idea of what to expect in terms of both hatch time and the potential Pokemon inside. Listing off a chart of the Pokemon that can hatch from each egg is one of the key purposes of this page, in fact – but we’ll get to that in a moment.

Battlefield 5 reviews round-up, all the scores

about X hours ago from

Following a delay, DICE’s next big Battlefield is finally here.

Battlefield 5 represents a return to DICE’s WW2 roots, for the first time in a mainline entry since Battlefield 1942. The game brings a great deal of changes to the core formula.

This is still a class-based shooter, but the new Combat Roles offer greater diversity and utility. Destruction returns, better than ever with more accurately modelled effects such as debris shooting outwards when explosives detonate indoors.
