Playing Valorant's Fracture Map: Callouts, Strategies, & Pro Tips
Buff faqsPlaying Valorant's Fracture Map: Callouts, Strategies, & Pro TipsValorant's seventh map, Fracture, brought some spicy new flavor to the game back when it was released in 2021 as a part of Episode 3, Act 2. Valorant differentiates itself from other games in the FPS genre with its twists on the attacker-defender dynamic, which is clear on Fracture. The map is seemingly designed in a way that empowers the attacker side with an advantage over the defenders. That being said, there are some strategies you should know when it comes to playing on Fracture, so keep reading to find out. » Learn more about Valorant Fracture Map Overview While Fracture is a massive octagonal-shaped map, it plays like an H-shape due to the positioning of the attacker spawns and zip lines. While that makes it extremely difficult for the players new to the map to coordinate with their teammates, it also allows for those who know the ins and outs to make some sick plays. The attacker spawn is located on the bottom of the map, but can immediately access the top side through the zip line, and the defender spawn is encased smack dab in the middle of the map. There are four Ultimate Orbs scattered across the map. » Want free skins in Valorant? Take a look at the 2 in-game methods for doing so Attacking A Site on Fracture Callouts When attacking A Site, pay attention to A Rope and A Main. A Rope is a choke point you really want to have control over as it is an essential location to hold for both attacking A Site and after planting the spike. With control over A Rope, A Main becomes a safer option to get to A Site, as you can worry less about flanks coming from A Hall while having great coverage over A Site post-planting. Goal Your goal here is to quickly gain control over the key areas mentioned above to have strong positioning for A Site and line of sight into Defender spawn. Strategies Having your Controller smoke key areas like A Rope and A Link to impede defender advancement to A Site will do wonders for progressing through A Hall. Once you've planted the spike, A Main is a solid position to defend so long as you cover flanks from potential enemies wrapping around from A Hall. Defending A Site on Fracture Callouts When defending A Site, pay attention to A Hall and give at least a little attention to A Drop. Attackers will be rushing to secure A Rope, so make sure you are ready to counter. And though A Drop is not the preferred mode of entry for Attackers into A Site, be sure to respect the possibility. Goal Your goal here is to gain control over A Rope, as it will allow you to keep watch over the A Drop entry while being ready for the action coming from A Hall. Strategies Do not hunker down in the defender spawn! Fracture makes this an awful position that is easily beaten out with a couple of smokes from the opposing team. Attacking B Site on Fracture Callouts When attacking B Site, important callouts are B Tower, B Link, and B Canteen. Gaining control of B Tower gives you excellent lines of sight to the entry points into B Site leading into and post plant. B Link and B Canteen are important areas to launch smokes, singling out enemies on the defending team as you look to take B Site. Goal Your goal here is to attempt to gain control over B Tower as quickly as possible. Strategies Push hard in the beginning, and then be sure to mix things up and keep defenders guessing. There are even more entries to B Site for defenders to cover, so use that to your advantage and catch them off guard. Defending B Site on Fracture Callouts When defending B Site, keep watch over B Arcade and B Main, the main entry points where attackers will push into B Site. Goal Your goal here is to take out enemies with your Duelist leading the charge to try to get an upper hand on enemies advancing into B Site. Strategies As we mentioned before, defenders have it rough on this map with the number of entries they need to cover, so try to get early picks to turn the odds in your favor. Expert Tips & Tricks Don't Dodge Fracture The attacker and defender spawn positioning is a big part of what makes Fracture so different, which also means it takes a while to become accustomed to the imbalance. There are things you will get a grasp of with enough experience running through dozens of matches on the map. A Site Planting Lots of players will plant on Heaven on A Site, hiding behind the wall in the corner for cover. You can actually wallbang this wall, but not always! The angles and guns you use will actually determine the success of this method. Jump into a custom match with a friend to get an idea of how this works. Farm Ultimate Orbs Fracture is also special in that there is an extra Ultimate Orb on each site, totaling 4. Take advantage of this! Especially as you are still getting used to playing the map, having your ult up and ready might be the boost you need to push forward with confidence. » Get free rewards just for playing: Download Buff and see how it works Teamwork Is Essential on Fracture More so than most other maps, teamwork is paramount for successfully winning on Fracture—especially if you are defending. Stick to the advice we've provided in this article and be sure to run a few custom games to practice the strategies. » Not sure what to use your Buffs for?

5 Pro Tips For Making Money With Fortnite
Rewards5 Pro Tips For Making Money With FortniteFortnite had more than 25 million daily players during 2021, and some of those players make full livings entirely off of playing Fortnite. Today, there are up to 4 million people that are playing at any given time on servers around the world, so it's fair to say the game is super popular. With all of its popularity, Fortnite has loads of opportunities for players to earn money by getting involved in the game, so it might just be the right time to pick up an extra income if you think you've got what it takes. With that said, here are 5 ways that Fortnite players can make money off of one of the world's most-played games. Tip 1: Compete in eSports Tournaments Fortnite's been out for over five years now, so there's no shortage of players who feel like they dominate the opposition and have really come to master the mechanics that the game has to offer. If this sounds like you, maybe participating in eSports tournaments might be a great way to make that raw skill work for you and turn it into some sweet income. Not fond of being part of a team? Well, there are also solo-division tournaments for players who don't need a team to prove they're the best. Either way, the prize pools for many of these big tournaments are huge, and some players have already earned millions of dollars from Fortnite eSports competitions alone. You can typically get started by approaching professional teams or grabbing your own buddies and heading over to the Epic games' official Fortnite Competitive page, where anyone can sign up to compete in upcoming tournaments. » Skilled in other games as well? Take a look at the games with the highest eSports prize pools Tip 2: Livestream Your Gameplay Streaming has become a massive source of entertainment around the world. For some, it's been lucrative enough to bring fame and fortune. The benefit of streaming your gameplay online is that you don't necessarily have to be good at the game you're playing—you just have to be entertaining. As long as you find an audience who likes you on your preferred streaming platform (Twitch, YouTube, Facebook Gaming, etc.) you'll be far more likely to earn a consistent flow of income from fan donations, subs to your channel, ad revenue, and potentially even sponsorships. The hard part is finding a unique way to present your content and gameplay that makes people stick around to watch you, instead of going over to the next guy streaming the same game. Tip 3: Consider Fortnite Coaching Strategy can be just as important as skill, and sometimes playing smart can let you cheese opponents who've spent hours perfecting their game. If you're that gamer who looks at all the details, patch notes, and updates and comes up with crazy strats to get an advantage over your opponents, then maybe coaching other players is for you. Getting started with coaching doesn't take much effort. Places like Fiverr make freelance opportunities pretty easy to come by and allow you to charge your own rates per hour or session. With eSports becoming more normalized, many high schools and universities adopt eSports titles and compete against each other, so coaches are becoming more and more relevant in the gaming world. Tip 4: Qualify for the Epic Games Support-a-Creator Program This one's for the creators. If you've got talent in capturing moments or creating content for your favorite Epic games, you could consider working towards qualifying for Epic's Support-a-Creator program. Epic Games believes strongly in the support from communities built on content creation, so the program rewards creators whenever their followers make purchases in-game. Epic Games' affiliate page explains how the whole process works. There are a few pre-requisites you'll need in order to be eligible for the program: You've got a following of 1000+ on your social media platform (YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and VK)You create content for Fortnite, Rocket League, or other EPIC game titlesYou are 18 years of age or older—there's also an under-18 application that requires supervisionYou must have a Hyperwallet account so that Epic can pay you Tip 5: Get into eSports Betting Here's a method that doesn't even require you to be good at Fortnite or charismatic enough to stream or produce content—all you need is some wisdom, a dash of luck, and to be at least 18 years old (depending on where you're from). eSports betting goes back further than you might expect, back in the arcade age starting with Asteroids and Invaders in the 70s. Betting, along with other types of gambling, is addictive and should only be done if you know what you're doing. You should make sure you are of legal gambling age in your jurisdiction, and that you are financially sound before making the decision to place a bet on any online sports matches. Conclusion Whether you're an absolute pro at Fortnite, or you've never touched the game yourself, there are ways you can make the popularity of this world-famous game work for you. Aside from actual money, there are many ways you can earn rewards from playing Fortnite, such as installing Buff. » Learn the ins and outs of Buff: how Buff works and how to earn Buff points

But what is the difference between those two options, and what are the benefits of both? Selling Skins Skins change in value over time. As more skins come out and others become less available, collectors and sellers will affect the general marketplace value for specific items. Having a skin from 4 years ago might be more valuable now than it ever was, so keeping and "investing" in skins, then selling them at another time can earn you some profit. You might also just have unwanted skins you're willing to sell. Either way, you can sell your skins on places like the Steam Marketplace (which is the safest) or third-party platforms. Trading Skins Trading skins is a much more delicate way of making money, but it's also a much faster way to make a profit. Trading involves gaining knowledge of market trends and niches, knowing what collectors are looking for, and joining active trading communities. Finding the best way to trade usually involves rinse-and-repeat methods, such as finding discounted items and reselling them for a profit to collectors or for a more valuable item that you can sell to another collector. Trading requires a lot more effort than just selling skins, but it's a great way to socialize in lobbies and become part of some great communities. How to Identify a Reliable CS:GO Exchange Site You've probably heard of as many dodgy CS:GO skin exchange sites as we have, so we've narrowed down some ways you can find the legitimate ones. Browse the Site Common sense is a powerful tool. Keep an eye out for things that seem illegitimate such as deals that are too good to be true or outdated information. Check how long the site has been around and keep an eye out for poor spelling and grammar. If you get a bad gut feeling about the site, you should probably avoid it. Check Online Reviews Loads of people ask whether a site is legit or not, and many websites research this to provide an answer. Browse online and see if people have had good or bad experiences with certain trading sites. Review Online Forums & Reddit Threads Reddit is a surprisingly great place to ask and find questions about whether a site is safe for trading. Don't be afraid to ask! Read the Terms & Conditions The terms and conditions of a site can be a dead giveaway for potentially fraudulent activity. It will be a drag, but reading the T's and C's will help put your mind at ease. How to Sell CS:GO Skins So you've got some valuable skins you want to sell, but you want cash instead of filling your Steam wallet by selling on the Steam marketplace. Here are two great ways to go about selling your skins for real cash: However, before selling with either method, you'll need to find your trade URL on Steam. To do so, simply follow these steps: Go to your Steam inventoryClick on "Trade Offers"Click on "Who can send me Trade Offers" Find your Trade URL under "Third-Party Sites" Now that you know what your trade URL is, proceed with either of the two following methods: 1. Sell Via an Auction Service Selling your skins through an auction site works a lot like eBay or Amazon, you'd have to sign up as a seller on the site, then put your item up for sale for an asking price of whatever you set. Buyers who are interested will ask to buy or start bidding for your item, and once the bidding window closes, you'll get a trade request, then get paid for your item. The upside to auctioning is that you often get paid what you set your price as, the downside is you have to wait for someone to take an interest, which can be a while. If you're ready to auction your skins, getting started is super easy with these steps: Sign in to your chosen safe auction site Thankfully, most of them let you sign in with Steam, which makes finding your inventory a bit easier.Input your trade URL onto the sitePut your item up for auction Each site will have a suggested price listing based on the average price of that skin. It's best to find prices at lots of different sources to make sure you get the best deal. And that's that! After someone takes interest in the trade, or you get the highest bid, you'll also receive a trade request on Steam. Simply accept it on both platforms, and you'll get paid. 2. Sell Via a Bot-Powered Platform Bot-powered platforms are usually much faster when it comes to making sales but are generally less profitable. When a site lets you sell an item instantly, it's usually bot-powered. In this case, a price is given to you by a bot, and you can choose to either sell it for that amount or wait until that price changes. The bots will then use your items in their marketplace to make trade profits. Getting set up is just as easy as the auction sites: Sign in to your chosen safe auction siteEnter your trade URLLet the bot check your inventory for pricesPick what you want to sellGet paid straight to your chosen bank! » Want free rewards just for playing CS:GO?

9 eSports Games With the Biggest Prize Pools in 2022
Esports9 eSports Games With the Biggest Prize Pools in 2022It's a gross understatement to say the video-gaming industry is big—it's colossal. In fact, it's so big that it's making more money this year than the music industry, film industry, and book publishing industry combined! The gaming sector is booming; the industry is currently worth 300 billion USD and is expected to continue growing to a massive 321 Billion USD by the year 2026. Part of that massive value is the eSports scene, which sees thousands of players competing in professional tournaments for jaw-dropping amounts of money; enough to earn some players an extremely comfortable living. If you're considering becoming a pro gamer, then our list will help you out. Below, we've discussed the top 9 eSports games with the biggest prize pools for this year and how many players are competing in them to help you make an informed decision. 1. Arena of Valor The game title with the highest earnings in the eSports scene might, weirdly enough, be one you haven't heard of before. Arena of Valor is a 5v5 MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) much like DOTA or League of Legends, with the main difference being that it's a mobile game. Wait, the top-earning eSports game is a phone game? Yep, you read correctly—this game can only be played on Android, iOS, and Nintendo Switch. The reason for the prize pool is due to the game's origin: made and released inside Mainland China. It quickly became popular in other surrounding East Asian countries, where the mobile gaming scene is much larger than that of PC or console gaming.

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mobile Better known as PUBG, this battle-royale 3rd person shooter came from PC to mobile in 2018, and picked up popularity in Eastern Asia, bringing yet another mobile title to the top of this eSports earnings list. PUBG Mobile's 2022 eSports Stats Total prize money: $20 millionTotal tournaments: 49Total active pro players: 1,230 » Downlaod PUBG Mobile 3. DOTA 2 DOTA 2 is another well-known free-to-play MOBA on PC that was officially released as a standalone game ten years after its debut as a separate game mode on Warcraft 3. The 5v5 lane-pushing game with a multitude of heroes to choose from was the first MOBA of its kind and served as an inspiration for the most popular MOBAs around today.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Counter-Strike is one of the OG's in the competitive gaming world and sees two teams of shooters (either the terrorists or counter-terrorists) fight against each other in different objective-based game modes. The first of the titles were released in the year 2000, and the first major tournament was held in Sweden in 2003. Almost 20 years later, the competitive scene is still booming with new and old CS:GO pros. CS:GO's 2022 eSports Stats Total prize money: $9,6 millionTotal tournaments: 246Total active pro players: 2,042 » Download CS:GO 7. Rocket League Rocket League is by far the most unique game on this list. Put simply, it's physics-based soccer with rocket-powered cars. What makes it unique is the lack of transferrable skills from any other game, and the sheer speed and skill required to play the competitive 3v3 mode makes it one of the most entertaining eSports series available. Though it used to be a paid game, it was bought out by Epic Games and released as free-to-play in 2022 on PC and console, which sparked new interest among a growing player base.

Every season, new characters are added that can completely change the way the game is played—and watching pros take advantage of the unique ways to play the game is nothing short of awe-inspiring. In gameplay, Siege is similar to CS:GO, but requires a more tactical and team-based approach. Siege's 2022 eSports Stats Total prize money: $6 millionTotal tournaments: 30Total active pro players: 371 » Download Rainbow Six: Siege 9. Call of Duty: Vanguard The Call of Duty franchise has been around for as long as most of us have been playing games; from its first title released in 2003, this well-known FPS game grew into a multiplayer competitive shooter that is loved around the world. The latest release—the 18th installment in the COD franchise—is COD: Vanguard. Vanguard is themed around WW2 and features some extremely fast gameplay along with pro players who have mastered every aspect of the game. COD: Vanguard's 2022 eSports Stats Total prize money: $5,4 millionTotal tournaments: 66Total active pro players: 181 » Download COD: Vanguard Final Thoughts Though the eSports industry seems lucrative, with some pro players having earned more than $500,000 this year alone, and some having racked up more than $5 million in their gaming careers, it's apparent you have to be among the best at your chosen eSports title to have a chance at earning that sweet prize money.
