James Bond 25 Official Cast, Writers, Synopsis & Locations Revealed

James Bond 25 has finally gotten an official cast and team of writers. It’s been nearly 57 years now since Sean Connery made his debut as 007 in 1962’s Dr. No, in the process kicking off one of the most lucrative (and long running) film series of all time. More than half a dozen actors have played James Bond in the years since then, beginning with Connery and carrying on through to stars like Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, and most recently Daniel Craig, starting in 2006.

As popular as Craig’s take on Bond has been, however, his movies have been a bit of a roller coaster in quality, going from the highs of Casino Royale and Skyfall to the lows of Quantum of Solace and Spectre. For that reason, there’s been extra pressure on Bond 25 – which will mark Craig’s final apperance as 007 – to deliver the goods. This may account for the film’s creative struggles in pre-production, which include a change in director from Oscar-winner Danny Boyle to the equally prestigous choice of Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre, Beasts of No Nation).

In the time since he signed on, Fukunaga has reportedly recruited Rami Malek to play the movie’s villain, gotten early production going, and hired Phoebe Waller-Bridge (FleabagKilling Eve) to punch up the screenplay. Now, thanks to this morning’s livestream reveal by Eon Productions, Bond 25‘s official cast includes returning players Léa Seydoux, Ralph Fiennes, Jeffrey Wright, Ben Whisaw, Rory Kinnear, and Naomie Harris, in addition to series newcomers Ana de Armas (Blade Runner 2049), Billy Magnussen (Game Night), Dali Benssalah (Nox), Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel), David Dencik (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), and Malek. Waller-Bridge was also confirmed as a writer, along with Scott Z. Burns (Contagion), and franchise veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. However, the film is still without a title for the time being.

Fukunaga further revealed that, when the film picks up, Bond is not in active service and starts his journey in Jamaica. It only makes sense, considering that Spectre ended with James and Madeleine (Seydoux) driving off together for destinations unknown. The director also confirmed that production on Bond 25 has already begun in Norway and that shooting will later take place in Italy, in addition to the sound stage and location work in the UK. This lines up with a previous report that claimed Bond 25 will feature a massive action sequence in Southern Italy, possibly even the movie’s climax. The plot summary was later unveiled online, along with the news that IMAX is partnering with MGM on the film:

“Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.”

Between the returning cast and new additions, it sounds like the plan is for Bond 25 to serve as a proper conclusion to Craig’s run on the franchise, while still providing all the globe-trotting action, extravagant locales, and (hopefully, memorable) A-grade supporting players that audiences have come to expect from the Bond property. It’s been a bit of a hectic journey following the project’s development (recall that Spectre came out about three and a half years now), but so far the film seems to have come together nicely, with a talented director and ensemble joining Craig on his final mission. Here’s to hoping that Bond 25 ultimately delivers the good when it hits the scene next April.

Sekiro Prosthetic Upgrade Locations & Guide

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has a unique mechanic at its core – the ability to use different prosthetic toolkits is what will get you around the various environments in the game, and help you defeat the various bosses that haunt your route. Our Sekiro prosthetics guide will tell you what prosthetics are available and how best to acquire them.

The prosthetics in Sekiro are vital to your ability to wear down your enemies and to generally make your life easier in the endless cycle of rebirthing, killing, and dying. Knowing what tools to use against which enemies is a valuable lesson to learn, and there’s honestly a prosthetic for almost every occasion in the game.

Related: Sekiro: How to Beat the Chained Ogre

This is the list of prosthetics available for you to unlock in the game. Check out the rest of our Sekiro prosthetics guide for the individual details of where to find the following tools:

  • Loaded Axe
  • Loaded Shuriken
  • Loaded Spear
  • Loaded Umbrella
  • Sabimaru
  • Flame Vent
  • Firecracker
  • Mist Raven

This is particularly useful against certain enemies, and you’ll note that we recommended it against the Chained Ogre in our guide. Protip: that boss is terrified of fire, which means that you’ll be able to cut short some of their attack animations by using the Flame Vent, and potentially inflict a DOT effect.

To acquire the Flame Vent prosthetic, you’ll have to convince the woman in the burned house in the Ashina Outskirts that you’re her son. Once you offer the bell she gives you to Buddha, you’ll be whooshed back in time and have to kill the bandits along the Estate Path in the Hirata Estate. Following the path culminates in an area with a small fire, where you can take out the enemies and loot the fire itself for the prosthetic. Bring it back to the Sculptor and he’ll have you running hot.

The loaded axe is one of the less complicated prosthetics in execution. Like the other loaded tools (spear, umbrella, shuriken), its purpose is pretty straightforward; it gives you the opportunity to do more damage. The axe does this mainly by smashing through things, which opens your enemies up to deathblows.

If you remember where you found the Flame Vent prosthetic just above, continue up the path that you were on and you’ll see a wounded Samurai who mentions the presence of the Loaded Axe at a shrine not too far from where you are. Head back to the main Estate Path, and there will be some chatty foes that you can eavesdrop on who mention not wanting to set the shrine sitting behind the closed gate alight. Get rid of them, and loot said shrine for the Loaded Axe before bringing it back to the Sculptor.

The Loaded Shuriken is, as the name suggests, a way for you to do ranged damage to your foes in Sekiro. As you upgrade the weapon later on in the game, you’ll be able to throw multiple shuriken and to increase the damage that you do with this tool. If used effectively, it can have the ability to halt the Posture recovery of foes.

Finding the Shuriken isn’t difficult. It’s located conveniently next to a corpse in the Ashina Outskirts and accessible by rooftop. If you head up to the second floor of the pagoda by the idol, there’ll be a way for you to enter it structure. In it, there’s a corpse in poor condition who will be hanging on to a Shuriken Wheel. Bring that item back to the Sculptor to gain the ability to harass your foes from afar with spiky projectiles.

Like the other Loaded items, this is a straightforward prosthetic to find, and straightforward in its effect. It gives you the ability to poke your enemies with an unblockable attack, and you can later then cleave them if you’re smart about your upgrades (and hit everything within the reach of your weapon to boot).

To find the Loaded Spear and to acquire it, you’ll have to make sure that you have an item called Gyoubu’s Broken Horn. This particular item is housed in a Gatehouse near Ashina Castle. Once you get to the Idol in the reservoir by the Castle, head to the main structure and you’ll be able to unlock the gatehouse to acquire this item. Bring the Horn back to the Sculptor to unlock the Loaded Spear.

The Loaded Umbrella is the last in our list of the Loaded tools, and as you may have been able to guess from its name it’s about helping you deflect attacks from foes. The Umbrella isn’t able to protect you from sweeping attacks from your enemies, but it has the ability to block projectiles. You can also upgrade it to enable you to repel projectiles back at enemies.

To find the Loaded Umbrella, you’ll have to go to Ashina Castle and head towards where the Old Grave idol is. There’s a convenient hole in the top of a structure nearby, and taking a leap of faith off that ledge into the hole will land you in front of a very small creature with a very large hat. They’re a merchant, and they’ll sell you the Loaded Umbrella prosthetic for 1,600 sen. Take this prosthetic back to the Sculptor to get your very own stylish barricade.

Page 2 of 2: Sekiro – Even More Shinobi Prosthetics

The Sabimaru tool is unique because it gives you the ability to poison your foes. This definitely has its uses, though it’s potentially not as valuable as some of the other more disruptive prosthetics like the Firecracker because it lacks the crowd-control utility that the latter would provide. That being said, the Poison status is handy in its own right for whittling away at tricky foes.

If you want to acquire the Sabimaru, it’s a matter of going to Ashina Castle. Head to the chamber in the Upper Tower where the Idol is, and take out any roaming enemies who get in your way. If you wander around on the floor above the idol and pop out onto the railing inside the building, you’ll see a samurai and some adds on the ground floor. Take them out to find a chest on that level which has Sabimaru, and take it back to the Sculptor to use it.

This is one of the most useful prosthetics in Sekiro. It does its fair share of damage against animals, and it’s also valuable because using it gives you the ability to divert the attention of your enemies enough to interrupt their attacks. In a title all about learning attack animations and responding to them, even the smallest reprieve from the cycle can leave you with enough of an opening to get a leg up on the bosses that are out for your blood.

The Firecracker costs 500 sen, and you can buy it from a merchant in the Outskirts Wall area who hawks his wares at the top of a stone tower by the Gate Path. Once you pick up the Firecracker from this merchant, get the Sculptor to pop it in and you’ll be setting off sparks in no time.

The Mist Raven prosthetic is probably one of the coolest ones out there. It affords you the opportunity to maneuver more efficiently around your foes by giving you the power to move and dodge faster. To get this tool, you’re going to have to loot the Mist Raven’s Feathers item.

To find the elusive feathers, you first have to go to the Hirata Estate. When you reach the bamboo thicket, move to the ledge to the upper left of the Idol and take a dip in the river that you find. Struggle against the current before grappling to a tree and cutting down some bamboo to reveal an enemy. Once you kill him, you’ll be able to access what he’s guarding and pick up the Mist Raven’s Feathers. Take those back to the Sculptor and voila!

Now that we’ve shown you how to get all of these cool tools in our Sekiro prosthetic guide, it’s time for you to get grappling and exploring so that you can be the lethal shinobi that you were meant to be. Check out our other guides for tips on how to beat some of the mandatory bosses and also how to unlock all of the game’s endings.

The Best Locations To Buy A House In Skyrim

Buying a house is a stressful event at the best of times, even if it’s only in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – here’s a guide to the best locations to settle down in. Skyrim was released in 2011 and its a testament to the game’s staying power fans are still playing it. Bethesda Softworks (Fallout) crafted an incredible open-world fantasy game for players to become utterly immersed in, where the simple quest to slay a dragon evolves into something much deeper.

Exploring Skyrim’s vast landscape opens up a world of possibilities, where the player’s choices have a huge impact on how the adventure evolves. The game received some negative feedback upon release for technical bugs and issues, but not enough to distract from the quality of the experience. Fans of the franchise are eagerly awaiting the arrival of The Elder Scrolls 6, which is likely many years away, but in the meantime, even seasoned veterans of Skyrim are still finding secrets and new ways to play.

Related: How Skyrim’s Survival Mode Changes The Game

Skyrim is a title that lets players get married and adopt children, so it only makes sense they can buy a home too. Of course, just like looking for a house in real life, players will need to weigh up the pros and cons of purchasing their new abode, including price, location, and benefits. Just like exploring the wasteland in Fallout 4, it’s just good for players to have somewhere to call home in-between quests and adventuring. Buying a home can be tricky without a little pre-planning, so here’s a brief guide to the best houses in Skyrim.

Honeyside (Between 5000 – 8000 Gold)

Honeyside in Riften is a modest home for a modest price, but it comes with a lot of benefits. It has a personal dock, an alchemy table, a cooking pot, and even a tanning rack. The dock is very useful for those with a bounty on them, and the Honeyside garden produces alchemy ingredients and food. The aesthetically pleasing wood cabin look doesn’t hurt either.

Hjerim (8000 – 12000 Gold)

Hjerim in Windhelm isn’t one of the cheapest houses in Skyrim but it’s well located, it has lots of storage space and comes complete with an enchanting table and alchemy table. It located near an alchemist shop and a smelter too.

Proudspire Manor (Cost: 25000 Gold)

While Proudspire Manor is the most expensive house in Skyrim – and costs more to upgrade – it’s also one of the best. Proudspire is found in Solitude and in addition to coming with lots of space, this three-floor home also has a handy alchemy lab and is only a short walk from a nearby market filled with goods. It’s also got a patio with a nice view of the landscape.

For completionists, buying Proudspire Manor is needed to complete the No Stone Unturned side quest because one of the Stones of Barenziah is found inside.

Severin Manor (Free)

In addition to being one of the best houses in Skyrim, Severin Manor easily has the best price. Severin is located in Raven Rock and is awarded to players upon completion of the Served Cold quest. The manor is a spacious place, coming complete with a cooking pot, small garden and other perks like a forge and alchemy lab. There are plenty of additional benefits, but neither a spouse nor children can move into it. The location could also be better, but again, the price is definitely right.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – All Merchant Locations

All Souls games tend to have a few out-of-the-way merchants, and while Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has far fewer NPCs than most, there are quite a few merchants who can be found or triggered to appear during your quest. These shop-keeps stock a few important items which are more-or-less crucial to success – Gourd Seeds, for instance, can be used to upgrade your healing gourd, adding another replenishing heal use to your total stock – as well a few valuable consumables to assist in farming runs and boss battles of attrition.

FromSoftware’s latest action-adventure game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has garnered significant accolades from critics, long-time Souls fans, and even total newcomers to Hidetaka Miyazaki’s games, while also earning cautionary notes for its challenge. Luckily, in the span of time since its release on March 22, the gamer community has been dutifully working to parse out its mysteries and secrets, though practiced reflexes are required to carry players the rest of the way.

Related: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Review – A Brutally Difficult Masterpiece

As you make your way through the toughest portions of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, don’t miss out on the below merchants – and take special note of the first one, because it’s possible to remove him from your game entirely if you’re not careful.

The first merchant in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Anayama sells a few important items, as well as some simple gameplay tips for a fee. His most important item for purchase is probably the Phantom Kunai, a tool for upgrading the Shinobi Prosthetic’s Shuriken attachment. You’ll find Anayama’s shop set up at the gate before the one that leads to the Chained Ogre mini-boss — if you arrive at the Ogre and haven’t seen him, simply turn around and look under the gate roof.

Chronologically, when you first find Anayama, he’s not exactly being respectfully merchant-like. When encountered in the flashback memory of Hirata Estate, Anayama is trying to break into a temple to rob it. Speaking with him here will also tip you off to an important treasure hidden in the bamboo forest (incidentally, it’s guarded by a fearsome shinobi who you might not be ready for at this early stage of the game). If, however, you attack and kill him, you’ll lock off the first available merchant in the game, so be careful.

Later on in the game, Anayama’s shop is a good infinite source of the Black Gunpowder and Scrap Iron, though chances are you’ll have a bevvy of these items just from playing through the game up til that point.

You’ll find a few so-called Memorial Mob merchants in the game, and while this one isn’t exactly a secret merchant, the Crow’s Bed Memorial Mob is very easy to miss. You’ll need to grapple and jump up a few different ledges from the early Gate Path Sculptor’s Idol, not far from the area with the cannon-wielding enemy positioned on the wall.

This merchant sells the Robert’s Firecrackers item which upgrades the Shinobi Prosthetic with a very useful tool, and is also sold by the following merchant on this list. If you manage to find this merchant first, though, you can actually use these firecrackers in the fight against the boss positioned before the gate to Ashina Castle.

The path to this merchant is unlocked upon defeating mounted boss Gyoubu Oniwa. Head in the direction opposite to the main gate of Ashina Castle and up the stairs on your right (if you pass by this instead, you’ll run into Tengu) to find this memorial mob’s tent tucked in an alcove. The Battlefield Memorial Mob sells Robert’s Firecrackers as mentioned above, and also has a useful Gourd Seed on sale for 1000 sen, which can upgrade your healing uses via Emma back at the Dilapidated Temple.

You’ll find this unassuming pot in a lake in the Hirata Estate memory, near the Dragonspring – Hirata Estate idol. Navigate your way down the cliffs and jump clear into the water, where you should hear him chatting at you near the shore of a small island.

Unlike other merchants, Harunaga only accepts the rare currency of treasure carp scales as payment, but he has a few special and unique items for trade. The Withered Red Gourd is similar to the main healing gourd, but this one only reduces burn status build-up, as well as protects against additional burning status effects for a short period of time. Also, just like the healing gourd, it replenishes automatically when you rest or travel at a Sculptor’s Idol.

Aside from that, Harunaga has the Mask Fragment: Right item, one of three needed to activate a special late-game feature, and a Floating Passage Text which will unlock a weapon skill (of dubious practical use, to be honest, but it looks nice). In the early portion of the game especially, the best first item to purchase with your scales has to be the Withered Red Gourd.

One of Tengu’s hated “rats,” Blackhat Badger has no allegiances to the underlying conflict in the story, and you can first find him hiding in a house with a broken roof just past the Old Grave Sculptor’s Idol; be mindful of the cannon enemies nearby, but they cannot damage you so long as you remain in the house.

Make sure not to attack him (he may look like several other “rat” enemies in the game, but he’s harmless), and you can pick up two important items from his shop; namely, the Anti-Air Deathblow Text skill and the Iron Fortress, a special material which can be used to enable the Shinobi Prosthetic’s umbrella tool.

Page 2 of 2: Even More Merchant Locations In Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Probably the hardest-to-find and most easily-missed merchant in the first half of the game, Fujioka is actually hiding from enemies on the right side of Ashina Castle. From the Ashina Castle idol, start heading up the stairs of the castle, grapple onto the rooftops to the right, then jump into the small L-shaped alcove ahead. There you’ll find Fujioka, who will ask you to kill the samurai in the surrounding area. Return to him once that’s done and he’ll leave the area, but will actually head directly to the Dilapidated Temple, where he will set up shop as a merchant.

It’s very useful to have a merchant back at home base and, though Fujioka is dubbed an “info broker,” he sells a nice variety of non-memo items as well, including a Gourd Seed for 2000 sen.

This memorial mob is easy to find, and his tent is situated right before the entrance to the Abandoned Dungeon. If you’re having trouble finding it, simply warp to the Ashina Castle idol and grapple across the side of the bridge, where you’ll find another bridge with two soldiers and an eavesdropping opportunity. Further on, there’s a large enemy carrying a bell surrounded by wolves, and just past him is the Abandoned Dungeon entrance, next to a Sculptor’s Idol and this specific merchant on the left.

The Dungeon Memorial Mob has a few useful items, including the Mask Fragment: Dragon and a Prayer Bead, the latter of which sells for 1400 sen, and may prove very useful if you’d like a health increase before an important boss fight, but happen to be one bead short (interesting side note: this is the only merchant-provided Prayer Bead in the game). The Mask Fragment is useful as well, though isn’t worth the high cost of 5000 sen in the early portion of the game, since it’s practically useless without the other two fragments.

The only merchant to be found in the Senpou Temple, Mt. Kongo region, the Shugendo Memorial Mob is located near the Shugendo idol, close to the travel point and across the mountain scaffold bridges below it. This merchant doesn’t stock many important items, although he does sell the Five-color Rice, a tool which serves as the game’s version of prism stones. It drops up to five small brightly lit beacons at your feet, and can be replenished when resting or traveling at an idol.

Considering that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a single-player game, the utility of this item is questionable (in other Souls games, players would often use prism stone-type items in a number of strange ways during PvP), although it can help players gauge exact drop distance when the floor below is clouded in darkness.

You’ll find this memorial mob merchant at the far bottom of the Sunken Valley in the poisonous marsh area. Grapple directly above the Riven Cave idol and exit through the passage, where you’ll be standing high above the swamps. From here, you can make your way across the cliffs and statues ahead, but you can also just head directly to the merchant by dropping far below and grappling a branch right before you reach the ground; there are lots of branches surrounding the fall, so this is a lot easier than it sounds.

The Toxic Memorial Mob can be found on a small, non-poisonous portion of land in the middle of the swamp. Sticking to his brand, he sells Antidote Powder, as well as the Green Mossy Gourd for 1800 sen, which is another replenishing status protection item, but this one prevents poison build-up.

The final memorial mob can be found next to the Mibu Village idol. When you travel there, there’s a stream just below (be mindful of a potentially strong enemy in the grotto at the other end of the stream), and across it you should be able to make out a faint yellow light in the mist. This lamp is attached to the merchant, notable for selling the renewable terror-status-protection tool, the Mottled Purple Gourd, as well as some treasure carp scales. He also has two Adamantite Scraps for purchase, which are useful for some advanced Shinobi Prosthetic upgrades.

If you’ve been waiting to take on some of the Headless mini-bosses scattered throughout the game, the aforementioned gourd is an important tool for protecting against their terror attacks without having to spend consumable items.

[Note: Spoiler warning for the description below, which mentions the final area of the game]

Much farther on and in the final game area, you can eventually find another Pot Noble named Koremori, who also accepts scales for his wares. In Fountainhead Palace, travel from the Palace Grounds idol and through the open front door of the palace and run past the nobles. Through there, you’ll find yourself above awaterfall, and there is a hidden grapple point that will lead into a small cave tunnel filled with lizards — to find it, you need to take a leap of faith from the far right ledge, and look for a grapple to emerge above and to the right. Once you’re through the cave, grapple down onto the pagoda rooftop, and you’ll find Koremori’s potresting near a tree and anew idol travel point.

Koremori will have the third and final piece of the Dancing Dragon Mask to purchase for 12 scales. Additionally, if you take on and complete the Pot Noble quests, either merchant will stock the remaining wares of their dead counterpart.

The Division 2: 20 Hidden Locations Only Experts Found

Ubisoft’s The Division 2 has been out for a little while at this point, and players have now had quite a bit of time to sink their teeth into the game and uncover most of the hidden content lying far from the beaten path. That’s no easy feat, of course—the game features a lengthy main campaign with more content than most similar games at launch, and discovering it all takes a considerable amount of playtime.

While players can anticipate a nearly forty hour run-time on a first playthrough, there’s more to Ubisoft’s new looter shooter than meets the eye. There are tons of Easter eggs and small details littered throughout their almost alarmingly-accurate rendition of Washington D.C. The first game in the series may have struggled to deliver content on even the most basic scale, but the recently-released sequel makes up for that in spades.

From a series of hidden caches in strange places to a set of cryptic comm links and a plethora of end-game baddies against whom to face off, it’s safe to say that watching the credits roll doesn’t have to signify the end of the game’s playability. In fact, those who already beat the game without coming across most of this stuff may well want to jump back in to check out the things they may have initially passed by during their first journey through the American capital. There’s more out there than could possibly be digested in one sitting, but here are twenty of the best hidden locations that only experts found in The Division 2.

20 Grand Washington Hotel’s Suite 3 Secret

Continuing the precedent set by the original game, each of the main story missions in The Division 2 features a hidden room containing useful loot intended for inquisitive, eagle-eyed players. Arguably the most useful of these hidden loot caches can be found in the first mission’s Grand Washington Hotel location. In the re-purposed laundry room found in the hotel’s basement, an item can be looted from a body propped up against a large tub full of clothing. Though it doesn’t appear to be lootable, searching it will reveal a key to Suite 3, which can be found in the hotel’s upper levels. This won’t give anyone access to any high-tier gear given how early in the game it is, but it can be useful to newer players looking to get a bit of a head start.

19 Hydden Treehouse

One of the strangest new secretive additions to the Division franchise has come in the form of the weird so-called ‘Hydden’ Hotels scattered throughout the map. In total, there are only seven of these to find, with the final one becoming accessible once the other six have been found. These locations often host some pretty cool gear, so those yet to come across one will definitely want to keep their eyes peeled. This one can be found just north of the Washington monument in West Potomac Park, slightly to the east of Lincoln Memorial Circle and and to the east of Ohio Drive. Shrouded by some trees and bits of shrubbery lies a hidden treehouse— one of the game’s six Hydden Hotels.

18 Demon Hunter Mask

Struggling to find something to do in the late game? Already finished with the story and can’t quite come up with a reason to return to Washington D.C.? Well, Ubisoft has listless high-tier agents covered. There are twelve legendary hunters to be found throughout the city, each with intelligence specifically designed to act like players rather than bots. Each sports a unique mask, and taking them down will give squads the ability to wear those masks themselves. The hunter wearing the Demon mask can be found after shooting a group of targets in a specific order in a building in D.C.’s Downtown East district. Be careful, though— he won’t go down easy.

17 Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Reference

Odds are that most fans of Ubisoft’s The Division 2 will be at least casually familiar with Far Cry, one of their other well-known open world shooter franchises. While Blood Dragon was more of a spin-off than a dedicated sequel, it has remained one of fans’ favorite entries, and the developers paid homage by including an arcade cabinet sporting the title’s logo in a building in Judiciary Square. Just east of the area’s stronghold, players can find an old arcade housing a few bandits. While it can be tough to appreciate one’s surroundings while the bullets are flying, attentive players will notice a few embedding themselves in a familiar blue and pink logo.

16 BBQ Joint Hydden Hotel

This Hydden Hotel is only a short stroll from the first one we mentioned, and players looking to hit up each of theses locations can easily cross these two off at once. Wedged between Henry Bacon Drive NW and 23rd Street NW in West Potomac Park, players can come across a relatively hidden platform playing host to some loot crates and a sign reading “Hydden Hotel BBA Joint. Take a sausage, not my gear.” Look out for a stack of crates piled up against a brick wall, that’s the most direct entrance to this less-than-acclaimed barbecue stand, hopefully there’s something useful to be found there.

15 Milicamp Hydden Hotel

Another Hydden Hotel, this time located just south of the White House—an area with which most agents playing through The Division 2 will be pretty familiar. This hidden locale, dubbed the Milicamp Hydden Hotel, can be found in the circular lawn just south of the White House grounds. Players may be able to spot a small yellow balloon atop one of the structures near the center of the lawn—a telltale mark visible near each of the first six hotels. Once inside the hotel, which is actually adjacent to a stack of shipping crates, players can read a sign poking fun at everyone’s least favorite gaming topic: loot boxes.

14 Wraith Mask

Another of the much sought after hunter masks available in The Division 2, the Wraith mask, much like the aforementioned Demon mask, won’t be found out in the open. Instead, players will have to salute a flag just south of Capitol Hill. Doing so will spawn in the hunter wearing the Wraith mask, and he will promptly wipe the floor with anyone unprepared for him. As previously mentioned, these high-tier hunters really are nothing to joke about. They were clearly intended for high level players nearing the end of the game, and any under-leveled player pushing their luck probably won’t last very long in this fight.

13 Ghoul Mask

This is one of the most arbitrary and puzzling masks to get, and it’s worth noting that most of these hunter encounters have to be done at night in-game. To get this quest started, enter a sewer in West Potomac Park near the BBQ Hydden Hotel. Follow the tunnel, then take the stairs to the right and interact with a laptop at the far side of the platform. After that’s accomplished, head to the western end of the reflecting pool near the Lincoln Memorial once it’s dark out and shoot a flickering light bulb hanging above a shipping crate. This should spawn in the next masked hunter.

12 Pennsylvania Avenue Hyena Comm

Completionists are no-doubt scouring the map for the ten hidden Hyena comms scattered across Ubisoft’s version of the District of Columbia. While those who enjoy sussing these things out don’t usually resort to walkthroughs, there’s an easy spot on Pennsylvania avenue that everyone should know about. At the intersection of Pennsylvania Ave and Alexander Hamilton NW players should come across a bright yellow school bus and a hot dog cart right alongside the Downtown East district border. One of these comms is sitting on the ground right next to the cart—this is probably the simplest one of all to come across.

11 The Rockin’ Pete Hydden Hotel

Referred to as the ‘Rockin’ Pete’ Hydden Hotel, this is perhaps the most out-of-the-way of these loot spots save for the final one, and it can be found in the East Mall district. Head east and enter the area’s subway system—a rather rude, foreboding message will emblazon the proper entrance. From there, head down into an abandoned subway terminal, and an open car can be found near the complex’s easternmost wall. Upon entering the train, players will be greeted with yet another Hydden Hotel sign. Be sure to check in at each of these secret areas, that’ll grant access to the final one once it can be opened.

10 Crimson Mask

Just north of F Street Northwest and slightly west of the border to Judiciary Square players can find a pair of phones hidden in two buildings on opposite ends of a small plaza. Interact with one of these phones, and then immediately sprint to and activate the second one. If done at night, this should spawn in the hunter sporting the Crimson mask. This is one of the most straightforward hunters available in the game, and players just starting out on their quest for each mask may want to start here. There’s plenty of cover and few distractions to come between an agent and his or her opponent.

9 The Vosberg Hydden Hotel

Just south of the Milicamp Hydden Hotel lies the next secret loot stash. This one is hidden in a large stack of beige shipping containers. Keep an eye out for that telltale yellow balloon, and it shouldn’t be all that difficult to find. This feels like one of the more lived-in Hydden Hotels, and it definitely carries a certain vagabond appeal. The sign here reads “We ain’t here right now, but feel free to grab a beer, put on sum [sic] tunes, anything you like, but do not touch the big weapon crate behind the bed.” The next logical step here is to go open the big weapon crate behind the bed.

8 Midas and Revenant Masks

Few of the hunter masks in The Division 2 make all that much narrative sense and feel more like Easter eggs than genuine missions. However, the Midas and Revenant masks require some actions so arbitrary that it’s a wonder anyone actually discovered them. Head to a drained pool in the courtyard of a hotel in the West End and do jumping jacks in it once night falls. This, for whatever reason, will cause two hunters to spawn in, which must be taken out at once. This one probably shouldn’t be attempted solo, as it’s obviously doubly difficult when compared to most of these fights.

7 Navy Plaza Hyena Comm

Another one of the game’s ten Hyena comm collectibles can be found in Navy Plaza, which is located in the eastern section of the Federal Triangle district. There’s a control point wedged in between D Street NW and Pennsylvania Ave, so players will need to take control of that before exploring further. Once that’s been taken care of, head to the intersection of D Street and 8th, face the Navy Plaza and head through the door in front of the fountain. A Hyena Comm titled “First Council Meeting” can be found in the hallway just through that door— so that’s two of ten at this point.

6 It Lives

References to Stephen King’s It have been cropping up in more than a few games recently, and there were more than a few small nods to the novel and recent film adaptation in last year’s Far Cry 5. The trend continues with the release of Ubisoft’s The Division 2, and it remains as creepy and mockingly sinister. Players have reported spotting a red balloon— a classic symbol of one of Pennywise’s victims— just beyond a grate in the West Potomac Park sewers. At the moment, it seems that screenshots are few and far between, but some players claim to have seen more than one balloon down there. Those sick of tracking down masked hunters can go search for something far more disturbing instead.

5 Ghost And Specter Masks

Aptly named, these two hunters are by far the most elusive and difficult to defeat in the game. Rather than standing their ground and fighting like every other masked assailant, these two opt to head for the hills at the first sign of danger. To get them to spawn, interact with a console in the basement of the Washington monument. This marks three grave sites, which must be visited and saluted. After that, interact with that console once again, and then search the grounds near the monument to find these two hunters. Careful; they’ll book it once the shooting starts, so players need to have enough firepower to take these two out in no longer than a second or two.

4 The Poopy Hydden Hotel

Yes, that’s seriously what it’s called— whoever’s naming these things clearly isn’t putting much effort into their work. This spot can be found in West Potomac Park south of the Vosberg Hydden Hotel and slightly east of a control point. Buried under another stack of shipping crates, look out for a yellow balloon floating above an empty, hollow container. Be sure to interact with the check in sign at each of these locations, as this should provide access to the final Hydden Hotel, which is also pretty close by and stationed in one of the most high-profile, least secretive areas in the entire game.

3 Downtown East Hyena Comm

This is perhaps the most out-of-the-way Hyena Comm, as it’s in a fairly obscure spot which most players won’t be likely to search all that thoroughly. Head to the intersection of 13th Street NW and F Street NW in the Downtown East section of the map. Once there, find the small bit of scaffolding near that neon green Philadelphia Eagles bus. Hop up onto it by way of that red crate, and then proceed through a window into a room containing, among other things, the “Runners” Hyena Comm. Since a majority of these things can be found lying about in the street, this may be the one that’s left completionists scratching their heads for the longest time.

2 Final Hydden Hotel

Once all of the other Hydden Hotels have been visited, head back to the Washington Monument and capture the control point if that hasn’t yet been accomplished. Once inside, slide down through an elevator shaft and enter a maintenance room in the monument’s basement. A series of lights on the far wall represents all of the Hydden Hotels that have been checked out, and, if they aren’t all lit up, that means some backtracking may be necessary. Across from that is a fairly conspicuous button which, once pressed, opens an egress door. Waiting inside is a special message meant for dedicated Division 2 adventurers which we won’t spoil here.

1 Phantom, Death, Diamond, And Cross Masks

Players questing for all of the hunter masks available in The Division 2 should probably either leave this one for last or wait until they have an able-bodied party of compatriots willing to fight alongside them. The max party size allowed in the game is four, and the more will certainly be the merrier in this case. Head to the garden ice rink in the East Mall district. From there, head into the small storefront adjacent to the rink and pull a lever hidden behind the counter. This will cause the remaining four hunters to spawn in, and they must be fought all at once. The good news is, should players collect some but not all of these masks before going down, they will remain in their inventories.

The Division 2: Hunter Boss Fight Guide & Hunter Mask Locations

The endgame in The Division 2 becomes accessible to players once they hit level 30, and that opens up hunter bosses and hunter masks for people to obtain. After you’ve read our handy endgame unlock guide and gotten yourself to that point, what’s there to do next? If you’re feeling particularly like taking on other agents in Conflict Mode, then that option is open to you. However, if you’re wanting to chew a little more on the excellent PvE experience that the game has to offer then it may be that taking out the elite AI Hunter enemies is more your speed.

The Hunters in The Division 2 are formidable enemies who are Level 35, which means that even players who have cracked The Division 2‘s endgame are going to struggle to take Hunters down in one way or another. They’re enemies designed to pose as much of a challenge as possible to Agents, which means that any Division 2 Hunter boss is going to be an ordeal and a half.

Summoning a Hunter is half the battle sometimes. They’re not just wandering around waiting for you to stumble upon them. You often have to do certain actions in specific locations so actually summon a Division 2 hunter boss to fight it and to take its mask.

Whether it’s navigating certain portions of Washington D.C. or shooting at a lightbulb in a particular place, there’s a myriad of different ways to lure out the Hunter bosses so it’s important to make sure that you don’t only have the locations down. They appear to be very sensitive to disturbances in the area so we would recommend dispatching other adversaries before starting to keep an eye out for your chosen Hunter.

Ghost and Spectre masks

To find the Hunter carrying the Ghost and Spectre mask, you’re going to need access to the Washington Monument. You’ll have to explore the underground below the area to find a room with a screen that will mark three graves on your map.

Once you salute each grave site on your map (one in Control Point, one to the northeast of the Monument, and one in a field near the Monument). After you’ve paid your respects at every grave, you’ll be able to go back to the Monument and track west to find a Missing Persons sign that will illuminate a Hunter perched on a container next to it. To get the Ghost mask, you have to one-shot this Hunter. If you want to get the Spectre mask, you’ll have to comb the rooftops surrounding the northern area around the Monument and to snipe the Hunter that you find.

Midas and Revenant masks

In order to get the Midas and Revenant masks, you’ll have to head to Hampshire Avenue NW in the Western portion of the map to an area that has a swimming pool. If you span the Jumping Jack emote, then you’ll find that two hunters appear, and killing them both will get you the Midas and Revenant masks.

Wraith mask

If you want to get to Wraith mask, you need to head over to Capitol Hill. The landmark will have a memorial wall with a water feature, and you will have to make sure that you take a shot at the source of light that’s casting shadows against the wall. Once you’ve done that, you’ll have to stand behind the light being cast on the memorial and to salute it. Kill the Hunter that spawns for the Wraith mask.

Cross, Diamond, Death and Phantom masks

This quartet of masks represents the most complex ones to obtain. You’ll need to have access to the Federal Triangle, where you’ll then head to the park nearby the Control Point that has a Christmas tree in it. There’s an office nearby which will have a desk with an accompanying lever. Pull this lever and return outside to lap the Christmas tree until smoke appears, signaling the arrival of three Hunters. Killing them will get you the Cross, Diamond and Death Hunter masks. After you’ve dispatched your foes, head cross the street outside the park to find a Hunter lying in wait and you’ll be able to pry the Phantom mask from his cold, dead face.

Ghost mask

You’ll need access to the Lincoln Memorial in order to pick up this mask. There’s an SHD cache which will have an entrance to a sewer nearby. Follow the path until you find a room that has a laptop in it; once you’ve inspected the laptop, the game will shine a light on a map at the wall. Return back outside and try to find a piece of constructed terrain at the Memorial which has a light stuck to it. Shooting said light will make sure that a Hunter is spawned, and defeating him will pick up the Ghost mask.

Demon mask

The Demon mask can be found pretty close to The Division 2‘s first major landmark: the White House. You will have to go to the shopping mall in that part of the map and head down into the mall until you encounter a particularly placed platform with some windows across the way from it, each one framing a target. Take out the targets starting from the highest window to the lowest, and a Hunter will appear. Once you kill him, you’ll be able to loot the Demon mask.

Crimson mask

To get this mask, you’ll need to have access to Judiciary Square. There’s an empty courtyard nearby which will be flanked by two walls, one containing a room with one door and another a room with two doors. You’ll want to head for the room with two doors first and take a peek at the computer on the desk. Once you’ve done that, head to the other room and interact with the phone. Smoke will start pouring into the courtyard, and the Hunter carrying the Crimson mask will spawn.

Now that you’ve got a rundown of all the different Hunters that you can encounter in the endgame and what you need to do to summon them thanks to our Division 2 hunter boss guide, get out there and get those masks!

MCU Infinity Stones: Complete Guide To Locations, Powers & Future

The Infinity Stones have played a major role in the MCU from the beginning, so let’s explore their origins, powers and potential future. Far from being mere plot McGuffins for villains to threaten Earth – or the universe – with, the Infinity Stones have only increased in importance as the MCU evolved. In Guardians Of The Galaxy, The Collector explains the origins of these all-powerful gems, revealing they’re remnants of six singularities that were compressed into stones following the Big Bang. In Avengers: Infinity War, Doctor Strange reveals to Tony Stark each stone controls an aspect of existence itself.

An Infinity Stone on its own is a powerful weapon but when combined they grant Infinite Power. Each phase of the MCU has revealed more about the Infinity Stones, leading to Thanos quest to unite them in Avengers: Infinity War. Thanos’ goal was to wipe out half the universe to restore balance, and in the finale, he used the combined power of the stones in his Infinity Gauntlet to do just that. Avengers: Endgame deals with the aftermath of this with the surviving Avengers working together to undo Thanos’ shocking act.

Related: Avengers: Endgame Would’ve Been Different With Marvel’s 2014 Phase 3 Plan

With the MCU’s Infinity Stones still at the core of the Avengers story, here’s everything you need to know about where they’ve been, what their powers are, and how they could factor into Marvel Phase 4.

The Space Stone (The Tesseract)

Appearances: Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War

Abilities: Teleportation, creates wormholes

The Space Stone is the first major Infinity Stone to appear in the MCU and caused a lot of trouble throughout Phase 1. In Captain America, Red Skull used it to build Hydra weapons and it later sucked him into a wormhole. In The Avengers, Loki stole the Tesseract and used its powers to bring the Chitauri into New York in a failed bid to conquer Earth.

Loki stole it again during Thor: Ragnarok’s finale before handing it to Thanos in the opening of Avengers: Infinity War, where the titan crushed the Tesseract and retrieved the Space Stone. According to Samuel L. Jackson, there’s a chance the Tesseract might appear in the 1990s-set Captain Marvel too.

The Reality Stone (The Aether)

Appearances: Thor: The Dark World, Avengers: Infinity War

Abilities: Changes reality, sucks out life force, opens portals

The Reality Stone debuted in Thor: The Dark World, where Malekith and his Dark Elves attempted to wield its power to destroy the universe. Asgard later hands it over to The Collector for safe keeping, but Thanos acquires the Reality Stone in Infinity War and uses it to kidnap Gamora.

The Time Stone (Eye Of Agamotto)

Appearances: Doctor Strange, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War

Abilities: Time travel, the ability to see into the past and future, creates time loops

The Time Stone plays a major role in Doctor Strange. The stone is housed in the Eye Of Agamotto, which was created by Earth’s first sorcerer and Strange is later trained to use its abilities. He used the Eye in the finale to rewind time and to trap Dormammu in a time loop, forcing the demon to abandon his plans for Earth.

Strange used the Time Stone’s power in Avengers: Infinity War to view millions of possible outcomes to the Avengers battle with Thanos – finding only one reality where they succeed. Strange later surrendered the Time Stone to Thanos to save Tony Stark’s life. The Time Stone might play a role in defeating Thanos, with many believing Doctor Stange created a special time loop before his “death”. There’s also a good chance it will end up back in his possession for Doctor Strange 2.

The Mind Stone (Loki’s Scepter)

Appearances: The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Abilities: Telepathy, telekinesis, energy blasts

Thanos gifted Loki the Mind Stone – housed in a scepter – to help him conquer Earth on his behalf in The Avengers. This allowed Loki to control the minds of Hawkeye and Dr. Selvig and Marvel later revealed the Stone was even manipulating Loki.

In Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the stone is revealed to have an artificial intelligence inside it that is used to create Ultron. Ultron takes the scepter to create a body for himself, only for the Avengers to steal the body back and upload Stark’s A.I. J.A.R.V.I.S into it, creating Vision. Vision later finds himself a target of Thanos in Infinity War, who ultimately kills him when he retrieves the Mind Stone from Vision’s forehead.

The Power Stone (The Orb)

Appearances: Guardians Of The Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity War

Abilities: Increased strength, invulnerability, endurance

The Power Stone once resided inside an Orb that Ronan the Accuser sought for Thanos in Guardians Of The Galaxy, and is powerful enough to destroy civilizations. Ronan steals it for himself to destroy the planet Xander but is eventually defeated by the Guardians. The Stone is given to the Nova Corps, but Thanos acquires it in Avengers: Infinity War after decimating Xander off-screen.

Related: Avengers: Endgame Can Reboot Guardians of The Galaxy (By Destroying Them)

The Soul Stone

Appearances: Avengers: Infinity War

Abilities: Can steal, manipulate and alter souls

The Soul Stone was the most mysterious of the MCU Infinity Stones prior to its eventual reveal in Avengers: Infinity War. The movie reveals Thanos once sent Gamora to find the stone but she decided not to reveal she found it on the planet Vormir. After Thanos captures her, she takes him there and they find Red Skull has become the Stonekeeper, revealing to Thanos he must sacrifice something he loves to possess it. After he kills Gamora, the stone appears to him.

Fan theories suggest the Soul Stone will be the key to defeating Thanos, with either Captain America or Tony Stark sacrificing themselves to possess it. Those killed by Thanos’ snap are supposedly trapped inside the stone’s Soul World and could be rescued from inside it.

How Game of Thrones Prevented Set Photos From Spoiling the Series Finale

When it comes to avoiding spoilers for Game of Thrones, filmmakers are taking no chances for season 8. The story of Game of Thrones started in 1996 when author George R.R. Martin published his book titled A Game Of Thrones, which stands as his first entry in his A Song of Ice and Fire series. His series of novels is what HBO decided to adapt into Game of Thrones which came on the air in 2011.

The show has been running for seven seasons, but Game of Thrones very quickly became one of HBO’s most popular TV shows. The series has a truly ensemble cast including actors like Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, and Lena Headey. All of these characters survived the end of season 7, but it is up in the air whether they will survive the eighth and final season. Thankfully, spoilers for the upcoming season haven’t leaked yet, which is because HBO is taking special precautions to ensure that doesn’t happen.

According to EW, HBO is using new high-tech instruments to make sure drones cannot fly over filming locations called a “Drone Killer“. Previously, Game of Thrones has had leaks due to flying drones and even actual photographersAs explained by actress Sophie Turner at New York Comic Con, “If a drone flies above sets, there’s a thing that can kill the drones, which is really cool. It creates a field around it and the drones just drop. It’s very X-Men.” While this new development will no doubt help contain spoilers on the highly anticipated season, the show has still had trouble in the past keeping elements of the plot a secret.

Last August, hackers stole 1.5 terabytes of data from HBO which contained Game of Thrones scripts as well as the cast’s personal information. The leak was a big blow to HBO as people were less inclined to tune in if the episodes had been spoiled. The filmmakers behind the newest season seem to not be playing games when it comes to season 8. In addition to this, the Game of Thrones scripts now supposedly vanish after the scenes have been filmed. It was also rumored that the show would film multiple endings, but those rumors have since been debunked by the cast.

Even though Game of Thrones is still quite a ways away, the eighth season is looking to be the biggest one yet (despite being the shortest in number of episodes). After all, this season will feature the biggest battle in Game of Thrones history. The series will also have to effectively tie up each of the characters storylines and finally reveal who will sit atop the Iron Throne. Regardless of what HBO has in store for fans, they are doing everything they can to ensure that this season doesn’t get spoiled early.

Harry Potter: 20 Strange Details About Draco Malfoy’s Anatomy

Draco Malfoy is one of the most memorable secondary characters in the Harry Potter movies and books. It may be due to his irredeemable and despicable behaviour,as everyone loves a good villain. It could also be the appeal of actor Tom Felton in the movies, and all the subsequent fan fiction they have produced.

However, not a lot is revealed about him in the books, and less even less is shown on screen, leaving him a mystery. We do know that his family has an unhealthy obsession with their pure blood heritage and an unflinching loyalty to Voldemort. One thing that we also know is that during his sixth year, Draco became even more villainous. He was given the task of assassinating Dumbledore and allowing the Death Eaters access to his present school, Hogwarts.

Some aspects that remained more hidden, though, including the origins of his name, which has links to the Hogwarts motto. His talents in transfiguration, charms, potions, and Occlumency are also never fully explored or known by the average person.

More surprisingly than all of this is the fact that despite being mortal enemies, Draco and Harry only duel twice – and one of them was in the presence of teachers, so it barely counts. Including these examples and every other duel that Draco is involved in, we have discovered that he never wins a single fight. This might be J. K. Rowling highlighting his cowardice and lack of morals that weaken his character ultimately. However, it might also have to do with his particular skillset.

With that said, here are the 20 Strange Details About Draco Malfoy’s Anatomy In Harry Potter.

20 He is a gifted Occlumens

While Harry Potter is undoubtedly a gifted wizard, one of the things he was never able to master was Occlumency. This is the act of closing your mind to anyone who attempts to read it.

Draco managed to surpass his rival by mastering the art of this notoriously tricky skill.

While it may seem peculiar that Draco can keep other wizards out his head while Harry cannot, this is in keeping with his character. J. K. Rowling confirmed that Draco managed to become a gifted Occlumens due to his ability to suppress his emotions. The fact that Draco can excel in this area is only due to his repressed emotional issues that may stem from his dysfunctional family.

19 His name says a lot about his personality

J. K. Rowling puts a lot of thought into her character’s names and the names of locations – and the seemingly bland name of “Draco Malfoy” is no exception upon closer examination if we take a look at its origin on Pottermore.

The name Draco can either be linked to the Latin for “dragon” or the constellation. The word “Draco” is even in Hogwart’s motto: “Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus, “which translates as “never tickle a sleeping dragon.” Draco’s last name, Malfoy, could have its roots in French, with “mal foi” translating as “unfaithful.” Rowling could have perhaps been a bit more subtle when thinking of names for her villains, however, as “unfaithful dragon” doesn’t leave a lot of space for redemption.

18 He temporarily had control of the Elder Wand

During his sixth year, Draco was given the task of destroying Dumbledore and giving the Death Eaters access into Hogwarts. While he succeeded with the latter, Draco was unable to take the life of the Hogwarts headmaster.However, when confronting Dumbledore, he disarmed the professor, which was a significant action even if Draco did not realize it at the time.

 By disarming Dumbledore, Draco unknowingly had control of the most powerful wand in existence – the Elder Wand.

This was only temporary, though, as Harry later confronts Draco in his house in the Deathly Hallows and disarms him. This meant that control of the Elder Wand was passed down to Harry, who still technically can wield it today. For one brief moment, however, Draco could have been the most powerful wizard in the world.

17 He learnt the Unforgivable Curses

Draco’s sixth year at Hogwarts was a pivotal and important year for the sole Malfoy child. As well as being given the task of overthrowing his school, he was taught the Unforgiveable Curses by Bellatrix Lestrange.

Lestrange, being Draco’s aunt, most likely taught him these forbidden spells to prepare him for his role. We know for certain that Draco can perform Crucio (the torturing spell) and Imperio (the controlling spell). However, it is unclear whether Draco ever learnt the ultimate Unforgiveable Curse: Avada Kedavra, which would destroy the receiver. Though Draco seemed like an antagonist during his first year at Hogwarts, few fans expected him to become such a villain later in the story. However, it could be argued that this was due to the pressures of his family.

16 He is supposedly one of the only Death Eaters who can love

Death Eaters are more ingrained to respond with acts of hate than love. This is hardly surprising, though, considering the amount of carnage and havoc that they have created. However, what is surprising is that even though Draco is a Death Eater, he is supposedly capable of feeling genuine love.

This love manifests itself towards both his parents and his future wife, Astoria Greengrass. This is at odds with the other Death Eaters, whose hate trumps their love. Be it Bellatrix Lestrange or Lucius Malfoy, these individuals are consumed by their service to the Dark Lord. While it could be argued that they love Voldemort, this is closer to worship than a romantic or platonic love.

15 He’s proud of his pure blood family

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter may be incredible, but when it comes to metaphors, it is not very subtle. The fact that some wizarding families, such as the Malfoys, favor those with pure blood is meant to echo the real world prejudices that some hold. Draco’s parents instilled the belief that he is superior to half blood and muggles on him at a young age. This explains his resentment towards Hermione, whom he calls “Mudblud” incessantly.

This hatred for anyone who is not pure blood is a trait that many of the old wizarding families share.

The notable exceptions are Nymphodora Tonks and Sirius Black, who were cast out of the family for their beliefs that muggles and wizards are equal. Draco may not be as hostile towards muggles and muggle-born wizards by the end of the Deathly Hallows, but it is still a prejudice that he cannot escape.

14 He has used a Time Turner

J. K. Rowling may live to regret introducing Time Turners into the Wizarding World. The amount of problems that this device, which was used by Hermione in Prisoner of Azkaban, could solve is countless. It could be used to stop Voldemort from ever existing or it could be used to bring back beloved characters. However, in Prisoner of Azkaban, it is used by Hermione to ensure that she can go to all her classes and to save Buckbeak.

Having not learnt the amount of plot holes attached to such a device, Rowling revealed the existence of a secret Time Turner belonging to the Malfoys. Without revealing too many details of The Cursed Child, Malfoy uses it successfully, which makes him – alongside Hermione, Harry, Albus, and Scorpius  – one of the few known people to have used a Time Turner.

13 He has a Dark Mark

Some fans believe that it was inevitable for Draco to follow in the footsteps of his father and become a Death Eater. He did this sometime between the events of Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince. We know this since we can clearly see a Dark Mark on his arm during the events before Dumbledore’s assassination. While Dumbledore looked unsurprised to see Draco pointing a wand at him, he did seem surprised by the fact that Draco now had a Dark Mark.

It is not possible to get rid of a Dark Mark, so despite the fact that Draco’s character has since been redeemed, he is not able to reverse the procedure. Draco will forever have the mark of He Who Must Not Be Named on his arm.

12 He was an extremely intelligent student

Although the movies show Draco to be just an arrogant bully, in the books, we see another aspect of Draco – we soon discover that he is an intelligent student, too. While Harry was always picked on in Potions due to Snape’s hatred for him, Draco was always the teacher’s pet.

Whether he was actually better than Harry is debatable, though, as Snape never gave the Gryffindor student a fair chance. However, one subject where Malfoy definitely excelled was in Charms, in which he was described as equally intelligent as Hermione.During his sixth year, he managed to cast the extremely difficult Protean charm. The only other person in the class who could cast it was Hermione.

11 He was supposed to get along with Harry

Draco and Harry were supposed to get along. According to Pottermore, Draco’s birthday is June 5, which makes him a Gemini. Meanwhile, Harry’s birthday is July 31, which makes him a Leo.

These two star signs are meant to get along with one another and are even able to become close friends.

During their first meeting, there was definitely potential for them to become friends, as Malfoy extends a hand of friendship to Harry. However, Harry sensed Draco’s arrogance and hostility and rejected him. Despite this, the fact that their star signs match up so well may have been a coincidence on behalf of J. K. Rowling. Or perhaps it could have been a hint that had Harry Potter shaken Draco’s hand, they could have formed an evil alliance.

10 He really wished he was the heir of Slytherin

While it may be obvious that the heir of Slytherin could only be Voldemort in hindsight, there was a lot of speculation over who it could be. During the events of Chamber of Secrets, many students thought that Harry was the heir due to his Parseltongue abilities.

Harry himself believed that Draco was the heir and took Polyjuice Potion in order to investigate. However, Draco admitted he was not the heir of Slytherin despite his family’s allegiance to Slytherin and their prejudiced view against Muggles. Although Draco didn’t know who the heir was, he served as nothing more than a pawn of the real heir: Tom Marvolo Riddle. This was still an honor for his family, though.

9 During Half-Blood Prince, he is described as unhealthily pale

Though one of Draco’s defining features is his pale skin, in Half-Blood Prince, he is described as being paler than ever. This is due to the fact that he was assigned by Voldemort to take down Dumbledore and help the Death Eaters infiltrate Hogwarts, which can put a lot of stress on a person.

Since he is the only one able to complete the tasks, he begins to physically show the signs of stress. It is notable to other students, particularly Harry, who notices his rapid deterioration over the course of sixth year. Before Half-Blood Prince was filmed, Tom Felton was told that he wasn’t allowed to come back tanned from holiday. His paleness may also draw some parallel’s to Voldemort’s own appearance, as some fans have spectated that Draco becomes more gaunt by committing evil deeds.

8 He wanted to use alchemy to become a better man

Alchemy is an ancient practice. Because of this, it is shielded in mystery. However, it principally involves turning lead into gold. For some reason, Draco became heavily invested in Alchemy after he left Hogwarts.

Post-Deathly Hallows, Draco settled down with his wife and child and began to study Alchemy. Being the heir of his family fortune and the Malfoy Manor, he did not have to worry about getting a job after school. However, Draco also spent time caring for his wife, Astoria, who was ill due to a curse that was put on her ancestors. While at home, Draco soon became fascinated by alchemical manuscripts. According to Pottermore, Draco’s obsession with Alchemy was pure – he wished to use it to become a better man.

7 He is never seen winning a duel

Despite Draco and Harry being sworn enemies during their time in Hogwarts, they only face off against each other twice. Their first duel happens during their second year in front of other second year students. However, Snape and Lockhart intervene after a snake is conjured by Malfoy. When Draco and Harry next duel, it nearly results in the demise of Malfoy during Half-Blood Prince.

During the events of Order of the Phoenix, Ginny and Draco also duel, which results in Draco losing his wand.

The final duel we see Draco participate in is during Deathly Hallows, when Hermione gets the better of him. At least during his youth, it was clear that Draco’s arrogance was just used as a shield.

6 He was a Prefect

A Hogwarts prefect is meant to inspire the younger students and act as a role model to them. By definition, Harry Potter would be the ideal Prefect for Gryffindor students, or any house for that matter. However, throughout his six years at Hogwarts, he is never given the coveted Prefect badge. While students like Percy Weasley may be obvious choices to become prefects, characters like Draco Malfoy aren’t typically expected to obtain the badge.

Draco is not a character that you typically associate with good morals, leadership, or as a role model. Regardless, Draco does become a prefect. Perhaps this was done by J. K. Rowling to show us that Draco did make for a decent leader, despite his lack of morals. In fact, some fans speculate that by giving Draco the badge, Rowling was not giving up on him.

5 He has ice grey eyes in the books, but Tom Felton has blue eyes in the movies

In the books, Draco is described as having platinum blonde hair and ice grey eyes. There are many parallels between Voldemort and his army and the Axis leaders and their army in WWII, so it makes sense that Draco would look like this.  However, in real life, the actor who brought Draco Malfoy to life on the big screen, Tom Felton, looks nothing like this. Felton has brown hair and blue eyes. Because of this, he had to dye his hair blonde for the movies.

Similarly, Daniel Radcliffe did not have Harry Potter’s green eyes. However, he found the contact lenses too painful to wear so the movies were filmed without them. Though not many fans may remember Draco’s eye color from the books, Harry’s eyes are constantly referred to in both the books and movies, which makes it even more noticeable.

4 He was unable to produce a Patronus

Though anyone can find out what their Patronus is on Pottermore, it is not as simple in the Wizarding World. Some wizards and witches are actually unable to produce a Patronus. While we know that Harry’s Patronus is a stag, many fans don’t know what Draco’s is. However, it has since been revealed that Draco is unable to conjure one.

This is apparently a common trait among Death Eaters, as many fans believe that they don’t have enough light and goodness to summon one.

While it has been established that Draco is capable of feeling love, this may not enough to produce the special charm. J. K. Rowling has also mentioned that Death Eaters are unable to produce a Patronus because Voldemort controls Dementors anyway.

3 He is a master of Transfiguration

Transfiguration is known to be a difficult class to pass at Hogwarts. After all, we see how hard it is for Ron to transform Scabbers into a grail in the movies. However, Draco is an accomplished hand at this craft. We see signs of this during his second year duel against Harry.

When they face each other in the Great Hall, Draco manages to summon a snake that slithers menacingly towards Harry. If it had not been for Harry’s ability to speak Parseltongue, he might have been attacked by the snake. In his later years, Draco even manages to transform Harry into a doppëlganger of Voldemort, which is an extremely complex charm. While the movies do not emphasize Draco’s intelligence, it remains clear in the books that he should not be underestimated.

2 His love life is fairly ambiguous

Draco’s love life is left relatively ambiguous in both the Harry Potter movies and the books. The only girl we see Draco talk to in the books and movies is Pansy Parkinson, who is described as the closest Draco comes to a girlfriend in the books. However, it is never actually confirmed that Pansy is his girlfriend in the series. At one point, the books describe a scene where Pansy is resting her head on Draco’s lap, but this is the closest we ever see them get.

While Draco eventually marries Astoria, little is known about how they met or even when they married. However, we do know that his parents disapproved of Astoria and that she was kind, and taught their son Scorpius to respect others (including muggles).

1 He is the only person Voldemort is known to have hugged

One of the most sinister Voldemort moments happens when he tries to honor one of his followers. This moment occurs during the Battle of Hogwarts, when Voldemort demands loyalty from the students of Hogwarts.

In a gesture of goodwill, Voldemort slowly and awkwardly brings Draco into an embrace in front of his followers. Understandably, Draco looks absolutely terrified, since the Dark Lord has never shown affection of any kind before. This is the only known instance of a Death Eater – or anyone for that matter – receiving a hug from Voldemort.

Are there any other interesting facts about Draco Malfoy’s body in Harry Potter? Let us know in the comments!

10 Most Powerful Weapons In Fortnite (And 10 That Are Completely Worthless)

The multi-platform game Fortnite has taken the world by storm. Upon its release in 2017, it quickly became the most popular game across the masses. The game is free to play, though additional “skins” can be purchased, using the game’s currency “V-bucks,” which of course, must be purchased using real money. The weapons in the game, however, are 100% free.

Fortnite boasts a vast number of weapons that can all be found throughout the game’s various locations. Players can search chests and vending machines, inside of which loot can be found. Amongst this loot, players will find weapons, healing jugs, and other items. The contents of loot chests are a surprise each time. The location of these chests are fixed, however, and only a certain number will appear at a time.

There is yet another way to acquire items, however, which will cause other players to growl in frustration. In the game , players battle against each other, and the victor can gain all of the loot from those they defeat. Loot only lasts for that existing game, as each player starts over at zero after each match. Players also keep their eyes out for floor loot, llamas, and supply drops. The llamas look like a pinata from a birthday party. Destroying these will also produce various sought-after items. Supply drops contain a large amount of loot, and float in via a hot air balloon box.

While some loot chests include powerful items and weapons, others should be ignored, as they might contain some of these utterly useless weapons.

Here’s a list of the 10 Most Powerful Weapons In Fortnite (And 10 That Are Worthless).

21 Powerful: SCAR (Legendary)

Most Fortnite players know this Legendary Assault Rifle as SCAR and are eager to obtain it. SCAR stands for Special Combat Assault Rifle. This variant of the assault rifle packs a punch, as it rakes out 198 damage per second and has a 30-round magazine. It is the perfect weapon for medium range battles.

This assault rifle has great precision and can fire 5.5 rounds per second. Because of this, it is the main choice for every player’s arsenal.

This favorite weapon can be found in vending machines, floor loot, chests, and supply drops. Players have a 30.8% chance of getting it in a supply drop. It is based on the Belgian assault/battle rifle Fabrique Nationale SCAR, which was introduced in 2009.

20 Worthless: Guided Missile (Epic)

The guided missile was vaulted in season 3 following complaints of being too overpowered. However, it was re-released in the season 5.10 update with some changes. These alterations included reduced movement skill, reduced turn radius, and reduced damage. Using it makes players vulnerable to attacks from opponents, as you must be out in the open to fire it.

It delivers 74 damage to health and 400 damage to structures. We’re not saying that this weapon doesn’t get the job done, it just isn’t amongst the best weapons. The Epic Guided Missile is fun to use to destroy structures but that’s about it, as it is a risky weapon to use. Guided missiles can be found in chests and supply drops.

19 Powerful: Heavy Shotgun (Legendary)

The Legendary Heavy Shotgun is a heavier version of the Tactical Shotgun. It also has a longer range and an increased firing rate, with its overall damage per second being 77. With a higher range, it is great for mid to late gameplay when players are moving away from close-quarter contact. If you come across a Legendary Heavy Shotgun, you should definitely pick it up, as its powerful punch can help lead to victory.

This shotgun has a slight resemblance to the Franchi SPAS-12, which is an Italian manufactured shotgun. The Legendary Heavy Shotgun can be found in chests and supply drops. Players have a 50% chance of finding it in supply drops and only a 12.4% chance of finding it in chests.

18 Worthless: Pistol

This small firearm has two variants: Common and Uncommon. Most players will pass up this gun when they come across it or replace it quickly with something stronger. The damage it delivers is not the greatest, with 23-24 health and 23-24 structural damage. It does, however, have a 16-round magazine and a firing rate of 6.75 per second.

In close combat, it will get the job done, but be careful if you decide to go up against an opponent with a shotgun.

Using this firearm over long distances is a bad idea and a waste of time.  Starting out the match with this weapon gives players at least some fighting ability. Pistols are only found in floor loot.

17 Powerful: Compact SMG (Legendary)

While there are multiple versions of submachine guns in Fortnite, the Legendary Compact Submachine Gun delivers the most damage to structures and opponents at 22 and 21, respectively. It has a fire rate of 10 rounds per second and a magazine size of 40, with a reload time of 2.97 seconds. It also boasts 210 damage per second.

The Legendary Compact Submachine Gun is definitely a weapon that players want in their arsenal, so be sure not to pass it up. This Fortnite weapon was inspired by the FN P90, a Belgium made submachine gun that was created in 1990. It can be found in chests, floor loot, and supply drops.

16 Worthless: Scoped Assault Rifle

The Scoped Assault Rifle in Fortnite has two different variations: Rare and Epic. This weapon delivers a mere 23-24 health damage and 25-26 structural damage, respectively. One good thing that the Scoped Assault Rifle has going for it, though, is its pinpoint accuracy, which makes it easier to use than some other weapons.

The rifle has a 3.5 round per-second firing rate. We’re not saying that this rifle is not worth picking up, but it should be replaced by a more powerful weapon the first chance you get. It can be found in chests, floor loot, and supply drops. This Fortnite weapon is loosely inspired by the AK-12, H&K 416, and the H&K G36C, combining an assault rifle with a sniper rifle.

15 Powerful: Grenade Launcher (Legendary)

The Legendary Grenade Launcher is the perfect choice for destroying structures, as it has a whopping 410 damage. It fires rockets from its 6 round magazine and has a reload time of 2.17 seconds. Damage to opponents is 110. This weapon is great to use against another players’ structures, which can lead to their elimination if they happen to be located nearby.

To use it efficiently, players must aim higher than their target to compensate for the arc trajectory.

Players should also avoid using in small areas, as the grenades can bounce back off of a surface before exploding. This weapon is inspired by the Mikor MGL that originated in South Africa in 1981. It can be found in chests and supply drops.

14 Worthless: Burst Assault Rifle (Common)

The Burst Assault Rifle has five different variations: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. The Common Burst Assault Rifle deals out 27 health damage and 81 structural damage. It does have a 30-round magazine with a 1.75 rounds per second firing rate, however.

Bullets are fired in bursts of 3 at a time. The rifle has a 2.9 second reload time. The Burst Assault Rifle is best used in medium range combat. It’s better to avoid using this rifle against far opponents, as it is not very effective. It can be found in chests, and floor loot.  The legendary version of this rifle can also be found in supply drops, as well as in chests and floor loot.

13 Powerful: Heavy Sniper (Legendary)

Delivering 51.81 damage per second to health and 1100 to structures, the Legendary Heavy Sniper Rifle is a devastating weapon. The only downside is the long reload time, as it takes 4.05 seconds each time. Compared to other sniper rifles in the game, it has less of a bullet drop. So it’s important to take this into account when aiming at targets.

Its long range ability makes it the perfect weapon to use against unsuspecting opponents at far distances. With the Legendary Heavy Sniper, players should find a location with a great vantage point like a tower. However, be sure to have good cover, since reloading takes a while. This weapon closely resembles the Barrett M82 Anti-Material Rifle, which was standardized by the U.S. military as the M107. It can be found in floor loot, chests, supply drops, and vending machines.

12 Worthless: Minigun

The Minigun may look like a firearm that packs a punch, but looks can be deceiving. The Minigun has two variations: Epic and Legendary. However, it the gun is often overlooked since it lacks power. Its health damage comes in at 18-19, while its structural damage is 32-33. It has a high fire rate at 12-rounds per second, which makes it good for destroying structures. Upon pulling the trigger of this machine gun, there is a short delay before it begins to fire.

This delay can be dangerous, however, especially if you’re facing off against opponents whose weapons aren’t as delayed.

Because of this, it’s better to replace it with a more powerful weapon the first chance you get. The Minigun can be found in chests and supply drops.

11  6. Powerful: RPG (Legendary)

This explosive weapon deals out a devastating amount of damage. It can deal out 413 damage to structures and 121 to opponents. The Legendary RPG also has a very large range, which makes it a great choice for taking out bases.

Surprisingly, players can also ride on the rockets and some have even used them to cross the entire map. In order to do this, multiple rockets must be fired for the continuous ride. This, however, is not the easiest thing to do. The Legendary RPG can be found in chests and supply drops. The real-life inspiration for this Fortnite weapon is the RPG-7. RPG is commonly known to stand for Rocket-Propelled Grenade.

10 Worthless: Dual Pistols

The Dual Pistols comes in two variations: Rare and Epic. Considered a step above the Pistol, the Dual Pistols is considered as a 2 round burst weapon. Players should make sure that they take time to aim when using the Dual Pistols, however, as this isn’t always the easiest thing to do.

The Dual Pistols deliver a health damage of 41 for the Rare variation and 43 for the Epic variation. Because of this, it is one of the most powerful pistols. However, it doesn’t stand up against many other weapons. Like other pistols, if this is the only weapon available, you should definitely pick it up, as it will deliver more damage than the pickaxe. The Dual Pistols can be found in chests and floor loot, though players are most likely to find it in chests.

9 Powerful: Double Barrel Shotgun (Legendary)

This Fortnite weapon comes as both Epic and Legendary variants. However, the Legendary version is much better. The Legendary Double Barrel Shotgun is great for close range battle, as it delivers 228 damage per second to health and 90 to structures.

Though it is not ideal for long range use, it packs a punch in close quarters. 

If opponents put some distance between themselves and the business end of this shotgun, it will yield very little damage. It is, however, capable of delivering two shots rapidly. The Legendary Double Barrel Shotgun is sure to take down any enemies who are unlucky enough to come face-to-face against it. The Legendary Double Barrel Shotgun can be found in chests, floor loot, and supply drops.

8 Worthless: Stink Bomb

This nose hair-burning explosive releases a stinky gas cloud upon detonation. The gas appears as a yellow cloud and lasts about nine seconds. The Stink Bomb deals out 5 health damage every half-second and it can even bypass shields. Players that throw this unpleasant explosive must be careful, though, as they can also take damage from it. Teammates, however, will not suffer any damage from the Stink Bomb.

The Stink Bomb resembles real-life mustard gas or tear gas. It can be found in chests, floor loot, supply drops, and llamas. Though it can be dangerous, the Stink Bomb isn’t as threatening as many players assume. Because of this, it should be replaced as soon as players find a more powerful weapon.

7 Powerful: Damage Trap

Unlike other items on this list, the Damage Trap is a trap, and therefore is not a firearm. The Damage Trap can be placed on any surface that accepts traps. Players are able to place it on ceilings, floors, and even walls. It delivers 150 of damage to players’ health.

The Damage Trap is typically set and then left for unsuspecting and unfortunate players to come across. However, it can also be used by placing it down after trapping a player, so that they have no way to avoid it. Fortnite has had other traps in the past, but most of those have been vaulted. This uncommon weapon can be found in floor loot and supply llamas.

6 Worthless: Hand Cannon

Another pistol to make our list is the Hand Cannon, which has two variations: Epic and Legendary. While it can be useful against medium and long range targets, it is difficult to use in close range combat.

It also has a low fire rate of 0.8 rounds per second and, unfortunately, it isn’t very accurate.

However, if a player is lucky enough to land a shot on their target at close range, it will most likely get the job done. While it does deal out 60-62.4 health damage and 79-83 structural damage, it’s definitely worth replacing with a more powerful weapon later in the game. The Hand Cannon can be found in chests and floor loot.

5 Powerful: Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle (Legendary)

The Legendary Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle packs a heavy punch with its 15-round magazine. It has a 2.07 second reload time, which could be worse. It can also deliver 66.6 damage per second.

With the thermal scope, players have the ability to see chests, supply drops, llamas, and even enemy heat signatures. This makes the Legendary Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle a great scouting tool. Players would be crazy to pass this up if they came across it. Even without its thermal abilities, it is still a great weapon to have in any arsenal. It can be found in chests, supply drops, and floor loot. However, players have the highest chance at finding this weapon in a supply drop. It was inspired by an AR15 assault rifle.

4 Worthless: Tactical Shotgun

Fortnite has three variations of the Tactical Shotgun: Common, Uncommon, and Rare. The Common version has the worst reload time of the three at 6.3 seconds. It delivers only 67 health damage and 50 structural damage.

In close quarters, it can be useful to suppress an enemy. However, it does not have the quickest of fire rates, with its rate stuck at 1.5 rounds per second. Out of all of the shotguns available in the game, the Tactical deals out the least amount of damage. However, it is better than some of the other weapons at close range, like the pistol or suppressed pistol. The Tactical Shotgun can be found primarily in floor loot.

3 Powerful: Heavy Sniper Rifle (Epic)

A tier down from its Legendary counterpart, the Epic Heavy Sniper Rifle deals 150 damage to health and 1050 damage to structures. Its reload time is a little long at 4.275 seconds, but it makes up for it in destruction.

Released during August 15th’s update, the Epic Heavy Sniper Rifle quickly became a fan-favorite with players who quickly began to experiment with the best situations for its use. Many players choose to carry two of these at once so that they can quickly switch between the two to deliver the most damage. While it may not have a quick fire rate at 0.33 rounds per second, it makes up for it in damage. It can be found in chests, floor loot, and supply drops. Like the Legendary version, it resembles the real-life Barrett M82.

2 Worthless: Submachine Gun

Fortnite offers three variations of a Submachine Gun: Common, Uncommon, and Rare. However, none of these are very powerful weapons. Both the health and structural damage of the three different types ranges from 17-19.  It does have a fire rate of 12 rounds per second, though, making it good for close to medium range combat.

Its magazine has a capacity of 30 rounds, which makes up for the low amount of damage that it deals out. It can get the job done, but overall, it is less powerful than a large number of the weapons offered in the game. It may look awesome, but it is definitely lacking. The Submachine Guns can be found in chests, floor loot, and sometimes in supply drops.

1 BONUS: Quad Launcher (Coming Soon)

According to an in-game notification, this long-awaited weapon will be making its debut in Fortnite very soon. In the notification, this weapon is said to “quickly fire up to 4 rockets to blanket an area with explosive damage.”

The Quad Launcher is a shoulder mounted rocket launcher and it is already building up a reputation, as many fans are excited for its introduction into the game. Players will have to wait to find out exactly how much health and structure damage this new weapon will deliver, though, as many details are still unknown. One thing is for sure, though: this anticipated rocket launcher will definitely be something to write home about.
