October 9th marked the third year for Junkenstein’s Revenge, the inaugural Halloween event for the hero shooter game Overwatch. Every year this event comes with the limited time event called Junkenstein’s Revenge. It is a PvE (Player vs. Environment) horde mode where 4 players must protect a door from the onslaught of Professor Junkenstein and his creations. Junkenstein will send his minions which will act as bosses to defeat while killing the normal waves of enemies that stack upon the bosses will try to kamikaze on the door making it increasingly difficult to juggle all the enemies at once. There are also tires made by Professor Junkenstein that will speed through everything and head straight to the door to try and damage it. If the door takes too much damage to the minions and tires it will collapse ending with the fail of the mission. Another way to fail is if all 4 teammates die to bosses, minions, and tires. This mission can be played in 4 different difficulties Normal, Hard, Epic, Legendary. But, if all waves are survived and players defeat the final battle where players must fight all the bosses at once with more enemies and tires spawning than before than they will succeed and complete the event. There is also another way to play called Junkenstein’s endless, in this mode once players survive the regular amount of waves required to finish an event they will be thrusted into bonus waves where everything will become 10x harder.
Like any other Overwatch event it is not complete without it’s skins. This time around the Halloween skins were more detailed and innovated than ever before. For example the enchanted armor skin for the hero Pharah which is controlled by a ghost so when the hero dies the armor clutters to the floor as if the ghost controlling had disappeared. Another new skin is Jack-O-Lantern for Hammond aka. Wrecking Ball his skin was changed in that his suit of armor becomes a pumpkin that instead of shooting bullets shoot candy.
So come join the Overwatch community and enjoy the spooky festivities of Junkenstein’s Revenge.

Finally 21 days after the drop of Destiny 2’s latest DLC named “Forsaken” the end game area The Dreaming City has reached its final stage of corruption induced by the Taken, an evil parasite corrupting the galaxy. Players everywhere finally got to witness this stage of The Dreaming City and along with it came many secrets.
First up after completing the Blind Well challenge and going to turn in the offering to the oracle something unexpected happened instead of the regular dialogue from Mara Sov, thought to be dead for years, queen of the Awoken, and sister of Uldren Sov killer of Cayde-6 beloved by all hunter vanguard. Players actually got to travel through a portal to meet the notorious Mara Sov confirming all the theories that she is alive once and for all.
Other news relating to Mara Sov is that this week players got to experience a mission that has been teased for weeks, The Shattered Throne. It was hidden mission found in the dungeons that can only be found by entering the taken portals in the Dreaming City once every three weeks. Upon entering The Shattered Throne it is found to be at an astounding power level of 585 while the average player base at the time of this article is around 555. This made it a new and challenging experience to Destiny called a Dungeon a so called 3 man raid with puzzles and bosses, with the average clear taking anywhere from two and a half to a whopping 5 hours. The size of The Shattered Throne is very large as well, as big as half of the Dreaming City and containing as many secrets as the Dreaming City itself. Thankfully this mission grants a very anticipated piece of gear the wishender exotic bow that grants wallhacks within a short distance. This exotic bow also allows players to to finally destroy the ahamkara(baby dragon) eggs around the dreaming city. It is still unknown what these dragon eggs do or what will happen when they are all destroyed but, it is speculated to maybe start a new hidden exotic questline like the whisper of the worm exotic sniper rifle.
The picture above shows only about one-eighth of the the Shattered Throne dungeon. It is made clear the size of the Shattered Throne and there are no doubt many more hidden secret inside. Hopefully overtime we, The Destiny community will be able to uncover everything the Shattered Throne is hiding.
