Fallout 76 Nuka Cola Quantum Locations - Where to Farm Nuka Cola Quantum?
03.15.2019 18:00:18 From GameWatcher: "Fallout 76 would not be a proper entry to the franchise if it didn't feature the legendary Nuka Cola Quantum in some way, shape, or form. With that, you might be wondering where to find some."
The Division 2 Loot Exploit - Are Ubisoft Fixing the Supply Drop Glitch?
03.15.2019 18:00:18 From GameWatcher: "The Division 2 has got a major loot-related bug that's been present since the game's beta build hit, and it's still there, threatening to potentially disrupt Division 2's loot economy. It seems that the problem is far more pervasive than we first thought."

This The Division 2 Hidden Outfit Can Be Obtained via Secret Mission, Here
Want to stand out from your squad in The Division 2? While the game has a ton of cosmetic items available for sale, or obtainable by doing missions, it seems there’s a The Division 2 hidden outfit that can be earned by doing a secret mission!
Over on The Division 2 subreddit, user riproarin999 has posted how to find this secret mission in order to obtain this The Division 2 hidden outfit!
There is a secret side mission south east of the Navy Hill control point. Go on the road around the corner up to a building near a shd tech. There will be a door way with lockers in it and a manhole. An npc is down there that starts a mission. The reward is called Retro Field Outfit and as an outfit it replaces all clothing and hides body armor pieces except backpack.
Check out the waypoint on the map where to find this secret mission:
Curious what this outfit looks like? I don’t blame you. Check it out below.
It’s not gaudy or anything but the chances of you running into someone with the same outfit is low — at least for now.
Once you’re done with this secret mission, it’s said that there’s another side mission that will show up as a teal sword icon on the map, though there’s nothing special to be earned by completing it.

The Division 2 Guide: Tips You Should Know Before Starting
Washington DC is in trouble in Tom Clancy's The Division 2. A civil war has broken out between the multiple factions of cutthroat marauders that rule the city's streets, threatening the safety of those left alive following the pandemic crisis from the first game. As a Division agent, your mission is to take the city back, but if you aren't well equipped with the tactical and mechanical know-how to quell the numerous threats, you won't get far.
To help you be the best you can be in The Division 2, we've compiled essential tips you should know as well as important details about the game's myriad systems.
For more about Ubisoft's online multiplayer shooter, check out our feature detailing how it feels to play the game solo. We also have a roundup feature compiling our latest news, features, and videos of the The Division 2. Though, be on the looking in the coming days as we'll be posting guides about the best guns and most effective ways to power level.
While our full review of The Division 2 is in the works, GameSpot editor and senior video producer Edmond Tran has detailed his initial impressions of the game as part of the review process. "'Encouraging' is generally how I feel about The Division 2 at this point in time," commented Edmond. "It's got a fantastic sense of place and progression, and the combat scenarios and skills continue to be interesting. There's a lot of love, especially among the minor improvements--the small design decisions that make the act of finding and equipping loot so snappy and convenient, or the smart integration of per-mission multiplayer matchmaking that even lets you call upon other players in the middle of a mission."
Got any more handy tips that we didn't highlight here? Let us know in the comments below!
Don't Forget To Return To Settlements
It’s easy to want to go from mission to mission without a break but it's important to return to both your Base of Operations and settlements from time to time to unlock new bonuses.
Upgrading settlements unlocks new resources like officers who grant you access to things like the crafting bench, Clans, and the Dark Zone. If you're unsure whether or not anyone new can be recruited, look at a settlement on the map and it'll tell you if there's a new officer available to join the cause.
Another benefit is you’ll see the settlements grow overtime; this includes new rooms and areas for NPCs to hang out, and a cleaner, tidier space that looks more active. This is more of a visual upgrade rather than a practical one but it's pretty cool to see a community thriving thanks to your help.
Invest In Projects
As you explore the world and complete missions, you’ll naturally get the materials required to complete Projects. Make sure to offload everything you get towards them, either by accessing the Projects tab in your menu or visiting the proper NPC at any of the Settlements. This is a great way to gain tons of XP, ensuring you're ready for late game play sooner than later. In addition, you're rewarded crafting blueprints, which is a nice perk to help upgrade and customize your gear loadout.
What To Do With Loot and Junk
When you pick up loot, if you're just going to junk it later, remember to “pick up as junk” with the RT/R2. Some of your junk can be donated towards Settlement Projects if they call for it, so check your projects first. The rest can be sold and deconstructed. Speaking of deconstructing, it's generally better to break down junk for materials rather than sell it early on, at least until you have a healthy supply for crafting.
It's worth holding onto low level Legendary weapons, chests, backpacks, knee pads, and any high end stuff because you can use them for recalibration later on. That is, sacrificing the item for the talent perk it gives, and then putting it on something you want.
Accept Settlement Side Quests
There's a plethora of side quests in The Division 2 that you can typically just find while exploring. But don't forget there's also several sidequests you can accept from folks at the settlements. Make it a habit to check back often so you don’t miss out on cool missions, like a plot to steal back the Declaration of Independence.
Some Skills Are Safe Bets
Choosing Skills can be daunting since you're not able to test them out before spending skill points (or SHD Tech) on them. It's especially disappointing when you choose something you thought would be cool but isn't exactly what you thought it was. So to help out, we have a few good ones that are safe bets early on. The chem launcher offers several variants, but the Firestarter and Oxidizer are great for melting away the armor of tougher enemies--note that the chem launcher does take a few moments to equip, aim, and shoot. The shield variants are all good in certain situations, but the Bulwark was particularly great for getting out of sticky situations, especially if you have a good sidearm to pair with it. And team players will definitely want the Reviver variant of the Hive skill, since you can revive teammates from a distance with it.
You'll likely acquire enough skill points and SHD Tech in the late game so you can acquire a majority of the available skills, but the aforementioned skills will certainly help in the early game.
Once you gain access to the crafting station, you can use all the blueprints you’ve been collecting to craft new gear. The thing is, as you play the game your gonna be constantly collecting new and better loot. So when it comes to weapons and armor pieces, spending your resources to craft new ones won’t really be worth it until you hit max level, when you can then start crafting specific gear for the build you want.
What you should do instead is craft mods. They are level-agnostic making them always useful, and it's easy to swap mods from gear to gear.
Another thing to keep in mind that while you can’t craft exotic gear, you can use the crafting station to upgrade them. For example, if you pre-order the ultimate edition you get the Ruthless, an exotic level 1 rifle. It may quickly become useless early on, but if you save it and then upgrading it after max level, you’ll have a dope level 30 exotic.
Rifles Are Your Friends
If assault rifles aren't your thing, semi-auto rifles are a great alternative--particularly the M1A and ACR SS. Don't let their high recoil turn you away, rifles are actually effective at taking down enemies in a few shots at close-range and perfect for mid-long range firefights.
Check Those Safe House Hard Drives
Safe Houses aren't just refuges for you to restock on supplies and sell loot. They actually have computers containing locations of nearby SHD Tech. In addition, checking a Safe House computer informs you of the three objectives you need to complete to liberate the area from enemy control.
Prioritize XP Perks
Focus on spending your SHD Tech on every XP bonus Perk early on. It may not seem like much first, but with perks like Headshot Accolade and Multi-Kill Accolade active, you'll be gaining levels faster than players without them. This is yet another handy way to fast track your way to endgame activities.
One of the nifty bonuses you get from upgrading the Theater Settlement to level 4 is the firing range. Located in the basement of the White House, the firing range lets you try out all your weapons. From simple target practice that tests your accuracy, to finding out how much DPS you can dish out, the firing range is a great way to compare and contrast weapons and will no doubt be very usual for figuring out end-game weapon builds. Another cool bonus is that your exotics will be displayed on the wall for you to appreciate.
Be The Brand
Brand Sets give you extra bonuses on your gear. Equipping three of the same branded pieces can unlock the stat boosts/perks attributed to that overall set. For example, the Providence Defense brand grants you +10% skill power, +8% health, and +5% weapon damage if you equip any three of their gear pieces. Brands are easily identifiable with their transparent logo next to the pictured gear. You wouldn't think brand loyalty would be so important during a post-viral outbreak, but hey, whatever you gotta do to stay stylish.
Support Your Fellow Agents
The Division 2 encourages playing alongside other players. If you're having trouble surviving, don’t hesitate to call for help or respond to calls for help from others. If you get a backup request, press the map button on the controller and then use RB/R1 to enter the matchmaking menu. Then choose “answer the call.”
Don't Be Afraid To Play With Your High Level Buddies
Don't let your character level get in the way of playing with higher level friends. The game autoscales your level one level under the highest level in your party, making it easy to do later missions with your buddies who have more time on their hands. And once you start the matchmaking process, you can even play while you wait for folks to party up. You don’t have to sit on the menu, it’s great!
Adjust Your Inventory View
If you find the list view of your inventory cumbersome, you can change it to display as a grid instead by opening the options menu while viewing your loot. Simply toggle the Grid option in the menu and enjoy the benefits of tidy organization!
PC gamers report that Epic launcher collects their Steam friends & play history, Epic Games responds
03.15.2019 16:00:18 DSOGaming writes: "A few hours ago, Reseteras member Madjoki discovered that Epic Launcher collecting players Steam friends and play history. Going into more details, Madjoki found out that Epic Games Launcher on start up searches for Steam install and proceeds to get list of files in your Steam Cloud. This also includes game saves for every user that has logged in on your PC."
03.15.2019 15:00:17 The Division 2 seeks to address a laundry list of complaints from the first game, while expanding on what people liked about it. Does it succeed? Perhaps, if players have a lot of free time.
TKC servers are well run and every attempt is made to ensure a fun gaming environment. No racist or rude behavior is tolerated on any of our servers. TKC tries to have round the clock administration for it's servers but obviously sometimes a server will have no admin playing so if you witness any abuse for any game please attempt to report the offending players nickname, and if possible GUID here: "Server Vistors Complaint". Just give as many details as you can remember such as what the player was doing/saying. In addition cheating is not tolerated on our servers. We are protected by any of a number of different cheat tools at any given time including; VAC, steambans.com, pbbans.com, ggc-stream.com, metabans, pbscreens.com and punkbuster, depending on the game. If caught cheating your information will be submitted to the appropriate cheat tracker and you will be added to their database which will ban your Steam ID, PB GUID or EA GUID depending on the game and website.
When available we also offer ways for players, in-game, to contact admins to report bad behavior. These come in the form of game server plugins. Players will, if the server has the option available, have the option to report a player using, @report [player] [reason] or @admin [reason] to call an admin to the server. If an admin doesn't respond in a timely manner, please use the @report option so we can follow up on it later or use "Server Vistors Complaint" as mentioned above. If an admin is not available, we also try to give the players the opportunity to use @votekick [player] or @voteban [player] [reason]. This allows the guests to our server the ability to kick or temporarily ban a player who is breaking rules.
Profanity - Many of the games we play have very bad language, some don't, that should make a difference in how we enforce our rules. For that reason we are going to implement a new rule, which will seem strange at first, but there is reason behind it. Bad language will only be tolerated on Teamspeak channels for games where there is bad language in the game. In other words, since there is bad language in Bad Company 2, bad language will be acceptable in the Bad Company 2 Teamspeak channel and on the Bad Company 2 servers. On our Half-Life 2 DM Teamspeak channel and game server, bad language will not be allowed. Future games will also be handled in this manner. The reason, we do not want to exclude members with different beliefs. If I buy a game and one of the selling points for me was the fact that it did not have bad language, that should be respected. I do not want a father or grandfather having to explain bad language to their children or grandchildren because they heard profanity on a TKC Teamspeak channel they thought was free of such things.
How to deal with with Mic/Text spammers - No one wants to listen to a lot of unrelated chatter either on the game server, or Teamspeak. No one wants to see a lot of text spamming either. It's distracting to some, and in the case of Bad Company 2, causes lag problems when the text log gets too long. If someone is talking or typing too much, respectfully ask them to stop. If they continue, you may have to mute or kick them, and if they continue after that, a ban might be in order. When on Teamspeak, a certain amount of "visiting" is fine, but the gamers who want to communicate tactical information to others playing shouldn't have to constantly interrupt talk about the latest CPU, or talk of what's going on at school. If someone is talking too much and you don't feel like you want to address it, PM a clan leader and we can handle the situation.
Team Switching - In some games this is a big no-no and if you are admin for one of those games, ask the player to go back, if they don't and you have the ability, move them back manually. If you continue to have problems, kick/ban them. In other games, like Bad Company 2, team switching usually isn't as big a deal. Sometimes friends or clan members might want to play together, in that case, try to facilitate them and swap some people around. This will show you to be respectful of community and they will probably be very appreciative of your efforts. If there is a mass exodus of people from a bad team to a good team, you can mention in-game that people need to stop. If someone is ignoring you and continues to unbalance the teams, just kick them off the server. For a game like Half-Life 2, teams change after each round, so trying to put clan members together is just a waste of time, that is why team switching is considered bad.
Hacking/Cheating - This is the most overused excuse for kicking someone off of a server. Players are unjustly booted off servers all the time simply because they were too good. That is not fair. Do not base a decision on cheating on a single round, if it isn't really ridiculous score-wise, sometimes people just have great rounds. But if they continue to have an unbelievable K/D ratio, then you might need to ban them. Sometimes it might be necessary to ban someone just because they are killing the server. For me, this is the thing I hate to do the most. That person might be doing nothing wrong, other than being really good at a game. Try to put yourself in their shoes and only ban guys who are really obvious. I don't want to see anyone being banned for an aimbot because they went 29-0. I and many others have had a better score than that, it DOES happen. You have to consider how the person is playing the game. Are they playing as recon? Are they in the heli with a really good pilot? Sometimes, if you are unsure, it might be best to ask the opinion of a clan leader. Remember, visitors to our servers have the ability and a forum to complain about unjust behavior from our server admins. If someone complains about you, you want to know that you did everything by the book.
Soldier Names/Nicknames - We will not allow names that are offensive to anyone. I think we can all use our best judgement here, but if you are unsure, ask another admin what they think of the name and come to a consensus before taking action. Players using racist names should be perm banned immediately. It does no good talking to someone like that because they're only goal is to cause trouble.
Banter and Trash Talking - Now its okay to joke around, but if several players are going at it constantly on the mic or in chat just nicely ask them to stop. If it continues warn them again that if they don't stop they will be kicked, if for no other reason that mic/text spamming. If they ignore this warning then go ahead and kick them. A certain amount of this is fine as long as it's good natured, however sometimes this can lead to hard feelings so you have to use your best judgement of when something is going too far or things are starting to get out of hand.
Racist/intolerant behavior - This is a subject that we will show no mercy on. If someone is being a racist, and that means they are hating on blacks, whites, browns, yellows, whatever the case may be, they get perm banned. No warnings, no kicks, just ban them. We don't need that kind of intolerant behavior on our servers. I don't care if the person is joking, I don't care what his real intent was, if he's spewing hate speech, he's gone. This also applies to someone who is spewing hate speech against a group of people, like Muslims, Christians, agnostics, atheists whoever. We are a gaming clan. This is our hobby and it's supposed to be fun. Everyone who comes to a TKC server should be respected and able to play the game hassle free. Not everyone believes the same, and if someone can't get over it and comes to our server with an agenda that includes racist or intolerant speech, I expect you guys to bring the hammer down swiftly.
Metabans - We will use Metabans only for cheaters and will verify each ban using Cheat-O-Meter. This will ensure that we are not forcing our Metabans followers into banning players we have banned for breaking rules other than cheating. If we deem you are cheating and Cheat-O-Meter doesn't really indicate cheating and we can not find information about you or your clan tag, meaning there is no website or previous information on you as a player or clan that we can cross reference, we will ban you on our servers, but not Metabans. Clans must have a website that we can find and access to be considered legit, otherwise we will view your tags as hogwash and your suspect behavior will be deemed as cheating. Again, we will not add a ban that is not supported by Cheat-O-Meter to Metabans.
We want everyone to have the best time possible so do your best to maintain a good gaming atmosphere, then everyone can have a good time.
To join TKC you only have to read our "Code of Conduct" and then apply for membership by filling out an online application. After submitting your application you will become a "member candidate". You will be allowed to wear our tags but only as (tkc), all letters in lowercase. As you progress, as seen by our members, you will be advanced to (Tkc), then (TKc) and then finally (TKC). You will receive emails at each step with detailed instructions on what you need to do. To obtain your full membership and the right to wear the (TKC) tags, you will have to pass a vote by the TKC members. Only those members who have gotten to know you will vote. An 80% yes vote will be required for full admission. Please keep in mind that full membership takes 8 weeks.
For you to be accepted you will need to display good manners, sportsmanship, and the ability to follow our rules. This applies to all game server activitiy and forum participation. If you do not feel you can meet our requirements we respectfully ask that you not apply as we have many who want to join and we can not waste time on gamers who are not serious about membership.
So now you're a member of TKC congrats! It is important for you to note that membership in TKC is not a lifetime privilege. Only the clan founders Big Flem and Squidward have lifetime membership and can not be removed. Clan leaders expect it's members to participate in clan activites when they can, and to be an ACTIVE member in the clan. We consider active members to be members who regularly post on the forums, participate in clan activities when possible, and communicates and develops friendships inside the clan. We do NOT consider a member to be active if they only ever play on our servers and nothing more. The leaders of this clan work hard to organize events and if you can't support these activities, can't check and post on the forums at least once or twice a week, then you are not TKC material and eventually you will be kicked from the clan. If you do not think you can meet these requirements as a member of TKC, then please don't attempt to gain entry into the clan as you will only waste your time, and ours.
Beyond administration positions such as "Clan Leader", "Division Leader", etc, the answer is no. However we do have achievable military style ribbons and medals that can be won for various acts. You may see each members ribbon and medal "Display Case" by going to the "Members" tab and under each members profile clicking the "Awards" icon. Below is each award and how you obtain that award. Note that medals also have an associative ribbon:
Ribbons(Hover over information icon for description)
In the past TKC had too many admins on our servers and things got a little out of hand. We are not looking for any new admins, however if we feel you will make a good addition to that team we will ask you. Being a server admin is not fun and games. It requires you to WORK, and follow server administrator rules which are well defined once you become an admin. Our admins are forced to stop playing whatever game they might be playing, and work to secure and maintain server tranquility reguarly. If you are an admin that does not mean you will get to run willy nilly and ban, kick, and torture at will. Admins who do not follow our rules will be stripped of admin duties and power. In addition there are more requirements of admins such as, reguarly checking our server admins forum. Once you become an admin you will be given access to this forum and you must check and read it quite often. It is a way for admins to help one another by posting their thoughts on what is going on, who to watch closely, etc. Do not ask us constantly to be an admin, that is the surest way I know to never become an admin. Our leaders will identify the best candidates for admin duties if we think it necessary.
No. In order to have an official TKC server it must meet certain standards. In addition, we might not want a server for a particular game, and if you aren't an admin, then you shouldn't have admin authority on any server. Official TKC servers have to be setup as close to identical as possible. This means that the clan leaders must have all access to any of it's servers including the ability to restart that server, gain access via FTP and game panel. It means that the clan leaders can setup the server with it's normal settings and add the usual addons. In short, if you want to have your own server then that is fine, but don't try to name it "Boom Boom Room" or tie it in any way to TKC.
Clan TKC maintains several servers that are open to it's clan members and the public. In addition TKC has other expenses that require money. To pay the bills TKC relies on it's members and visitors to donate. Without these donations, TKC will cease to exist. Please consider donating money when you can. We do our best to use the money wisely, to invest in TKC, to invest in PC gaming.
