Fallout 76 weapons: where to find the bow in Wastelanders

Fallout 76 has more stuff trying to kill you than ever before. It's not just the local mutated fauna as other players are likely to shoot first.

A demonic face-off from Doom’s past is sealed inside Doom Eternal’s soundtrack

There's more than a bit of metal in Doom Eternal. The rhythmic bass blasts of super-shotguns, tinny chaingun power solos, verses punctuated by gory breaks and technical fingerwork. It's only natural that Doom's soundtrack contains a little bit of hell in kind.
