This Friday, season X of League Of Legends is finally coming out. With it, we will get an interesting new tanky champ that goes by the name Sett, the Boss. Let’s see what he can do.
It seems that Aphelios just came out yesterday, but Riot is not slowing down. Sett will be playable immediately after you download season 10 patch. Compared to the Aphelios, he is not as complex character to play, but he does introduce some new mechanics into LoL.
Sett’s Various Abilities
Passive: Pit Grit
Pit Grit consists of 2 abilities: Heavy Hands and Heart of the Half-Beast. Heavy Hands makes Sett alternate his punches, with a right hand having a couple of bonuses like bigger range, faster attack speed, and improved attack damage. You gotta be fast with your right hand though, as the cycle will reset if you don’t use it within 2 seconds. Heart of the Half-Beast gives Sett bonus health regeneration, which gets stronger as his HP drops, similar to Garen.
Q: Knuckle Down
This one does a number of things. It gives Sett +30% movement speed when walking towards enemy, resets Heavy Hands timer, and gives bonus damage to next 2 basic attacks.
Haymaker gives Sett a passive that turns damage taken into Grit (up to 50% of max health). After the initial 4 seconds, Grit will start decaying by 30%. When Sett uses Haymaker, he will get a decaying shield that’s equal to the Grit stored. Furthermore, he will deal true damage to the enemies in front of him.
Facebreaker works similar to Thresh’s lantern attack by pulling enemies in front and back towards him. If Sett manages to grab enemies on both sides, they will be stunned. Otherwise, he will just slow them down and deal small damage.
R: The Show Stopper
Sett’s ultimate will suppress enemy champion while he leaps forward and slams him into the ground. This is an animation that cannot be stopped. All enemies that are in the area will receive damage based on the HP of locked champion and be 99% slowed for the duration of 1.5 seconds.
Although he isn’t officially out yet, we have played with Sett and would like to offer some ideas on how to handle him. The first thing you will notice is that he isn’t particularly fast. His Knuckle Down ability is useful for engaging in fights, but Sett doesn’t really have disengaging abilities. However, he makes up for this with his strength and durability, making him an ideal pick if you are looking for tanky support or top. Thanks to the passive, he is at his most dangerous with low HP. Combine it with Haymaker to get a big shield, and you have a devastating combo. Sett is pretty OP at the moment, just look at this video.
Sett has the luxury of fighting inside minion waves, as his Facebreaker will then be used to its full potential. When using ultimate, you will want to pick the enemy with most HP and slam him onto other enemies. True, the Show Stopper is a bit risky, but if you time it right with Haymaker and Facebreaker, it is absolutely deadly.
Idea For Build
Regarding items, you will want something that shields you and does good damage simultaneously. Trinity Force is a good first item for Sett, and you can follow it with the Black Cleaver and Sterak’s Gage. Additionally, Titanic Hydra will help you replenish your lost HP fast.
If you are playing as a support and need more defensive items, Thornmail and Gargoyle Stoneplate are both good options. Guardian Angel is a good finish to both builds, as it will prevent you from dying after using your ultimate.

Ninja gets skin on Fortnite in new update
Tyler “Ninja” Blevins will have his own skin in Fortnite. The streamer made the announcement on Wednesday morning (15) on a broadcast on his Mixer channel. The item is part of the Icon Series, which already has the Marshmello and Major Lazer skins. According to the player, the news comes to the game on Thursday (16), along with the 11.4 update, the first of 2020 at Epic Games Battle Royale. Nevertheless, the skin is only available for three days, leaving the game catalog as early as the 19th.
The character’s look was praised by the streamer. The skin features spiky hair, a blue jacket and hood, and black pants. “(The skin) looks like me,” commented Ninja during the broadcast. Other news involving the player has also come to Battle Royale: an emote, a blingback and a pick are available to the player who purchases the item. You can even vary between four skin customizations.
The title developer plans to release more such items, bringing real-world personalities into the game. Loserfruit and TheGrefg, for example, are also confirmed by Epic Games.
We're bringing the artistic vision, personality and attitude of our top creators to Fortnite with the Icon series, starting with @Ninja!
This is just the beginning of gaming, music, film, and fashion colliding in Fortnite.

Fortnite Update 11.4 also features a new weapon side rank feature. In non-competitive matches, the player may “set aside” the assault rifle as a heavy assault rifle, which returns in this patch. Now it will also be possible to upgrade the rarity of weapons early in the game. New items have also been added, such as the Flint-Knock pistol and the Shockwave and Impulse grenades.
Funds are already nearing the end of Fortnite’s first season, Chapter 2, which began in October last year. The next one is scheduled to start in February, and should bring news such as map changes, battle pass and new item releases.
How to get Ninja skin in Fortnite?
Ninja’s skin will be in store for a limited time, however, and availability will cease once it is removed. The skin will be removed three days later, on January 19.
Ninja’s partnership is part of a new Icons series in which Epic Games collaborates with musicians, artists, movies, fashion and more to bring themed experiences to Fortnite. Past collaborations included Marshmello and Major Lazer. Epic has also confirmed that YouTube creators Loserfruit and The Grefg are future collaborations of the Icons series.
PUBG Season 6 Update: New Map And More
PUBG Season 6 update will soon hit the streets, and with it, we will get a brand new map called Karakin. Here’s all that we know about the upcoming season.
New Desert Map
Karakin didn’t come out of the blue. The devs have already teased us via social media before giving us this badass reveal trailer. Karakin is a desert map set somewhere in North Africa. This will be games 5th map, along with Miramar, Vikendi, Sanhok, and Erangel. Karakin is 2 x 2 km in size, which means it is much smaller than other maps and perfect for fast-paced games. It has also been confirmed that Vikendi will not be available in season 6, but will definitely reappear in the later seasons. However, custom matches in Vikendi will still be available.
If you just can’t wait for it, you can already check Karakin out on a test server. Aside from 5 villages on the shores, much of the map is an open mountainous area, which will be perfect for sniping practice. There are claustrophobic underground bunkers spread throughout the map.
PUBG Season 6 Mechanic: Black Zone
Karakin also comes with a twist – a new mechanic called Black Zone that will completely transform the area inside it. The buildings inside it will sustain big damage or be completely destroyed, so you will have to constantly be on your feet. Devs have developed it to prevent excessive camping and we highly welcome it. Black Zone will also evolve in real-time throughout the match, so a house that was there just a minute ago may become totally flattened. Buildings that get destroyed will be represented with X on the minimap. It will also be totally random, resulting in a different experience every time you play. Watch out for the sound of a siren and quickly evacuate if you are inside the purple circle.
Sticky Bombs And Penetrable Walls
Karakin will also have one unique weapon – Sticky Bombs. You will use them on various Breach points, like weak walls and floors, to create new paths. This will definitely add a new tactical element in the game, as you now have the option to attack enemies from various unexpected angles. Sticky Bombs will also uncover various secret areas that might contain useful loot, so keep your eyes open.
Devs have also decided to add bullet penetration, which will work on the weakest walls in Karakin. Lastly, the new flying vehicle called Motor Glider will also be available in Karakin. The vehicle has 2 seats, making it easy for your teammate to spread fire on enemies below. There are dozens of small things added and you can see full patch notes here.
PUBG Is Here To Stay
PUBG is still very much in race with other Battle Royale games like Apex Legends and Fortnite. Remember, Season 5 was launched in October of 2019, and we’ve already got a new one. Season 6 is coming out at the end of the month, on January 25th.
