The Complete List of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirits

Published

on

Check your progress with this complete list of every Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has – appropriately enough – been a smash hit for the Nintendo Switch, selling 12.08 million copies in its first month. One of game’s best additions are Spirits; unlockable power-up characters that can be used to assist fighters in the World of Light single-player campaign, and on the Spirit Board. Although many fans mourn the loss of trophies, Spirits, are a worthy replacement due to their ability to be used as perks and buffs. The sheer number of Spirits – 1303 at the time of writing – means the collectable element that made trophies so popular in earlier Smash games is retained.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirits by series

Here’s the complete list (as of February 3, 2019) of every Spirit to be unlocked in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. They are ordered by game series, and broken down into in Fighter, Primary, Support, and Master categories.

What is the apartment 302 safe code in The Last of Us Part II?

The apartment safe code in The Last of Us Part II isn’t actually written down, which makes it a bit trickier to find than the others.

Published

on

The Last of Us Part II apartment 302 safe code note
Naughty Dog

The apartment 302 safe code in The Last of Us Part II isn’t actually written down, which makes it a bit trickier to find than the others.

So you know the drill by now. You find a safe in The Last of Us Part II, then you need to find a code to open it and access the goodies inside. (Don’t get too excited. The goodies are usually two shotgun shells and a bottle of rubbing alcohol; it’s hardly the crown jewels.)

Often, the code is literally written down for you. There’s a note, left by a (presumably-no-longer-a) survivor, advising their friends or loved ones how to access their disappointing trove. Or as chance may have it, allowing the player to nab some supplies.

Sometimes, the code isn’t written down at all. Instead, the note maker has left a clue, a nod to the environment to find the code. That might be a winning lottery ticket or a suspiciously short wireless password. But in the case of the apartment 302 safe code, it’s not so obvious.

You’ll find reference to the safe on a note that’s been passed back and forth between two apartments. After the evacuation of downtown, by chance, next-door neighbours realise they’re not alone. Both apartments chose not to leave, for reasons their own. But far from the “humans are the real monsters” narrative pushed in The Last of Us Part II and its ilk, these neighbours, who probably never spoke in the before times, begin communicating. Getting to know one another. Helping each other out. Sharing freshly baked cornbread and vodka. It’s heartwarming stuff.

We can track their conversation, back and forth, on a scrap of paper passed under locked doors. Then tragedy strikes and apartment 302, following a death, readies to leave. They pass a note under next door advising them of the code to the safe, telling them to help themselves. Next door writes back a thank you but declines the offer, which means there’s still something in the safe for your grubby little mitts.

But what is the apartment 302 safe code? The clue to this one is in the apartment number:

“I’m leaving our door unlocked and some supplies in our safe. Combo is our apartment number then your apartment number.”

The apartment you’re standing in is 302. You can see that from the board in the room, and it’s also mentioned in the note. So you go to the safe and try 302-303 and nothing happens. Why? Because in some buildings, like houses on some streets, the apartment numbers are even one on side of the corridor and odd on the other.

That actually makes the apartment 302 safe code 302-204.

What is the hotel gym safe code in The Last of Us Part II?

Another safe, another code to find. Unfortunately, the hotel gym safe code in The Last of Us Part II is a difficult one to find.

Published

The Last of Us Part II hotel gym safe code
Naughty Dog / Thumbsticks

Another safe, another code to find. Unfortunately, the hotel gym safe code in The Last of Us Part II is a difficult one to find.

Most of the safe codes you’ll find in The Last of Us Part II are fairly straightforward. You’ll discover a note in the environment, sometimes on a dead body, with some whatever their last thoughts were. Then at the bottom, there’ll be a note that says something like, “When I’m gone, if you want to use my stuff, the safe code is…”

It’s a strangely altruistic turn for a game that insists that, in the event of the end of the world, people would bash each other’s brains in for a can of beans. Maybe humans are the real monsters and all that.

But sometimes you have to do a bit more work to discern the code. One code, called “the big win”, is particularly difficult to find. (But oh so obvious when you see it.)

The hotel gym safe code in The Last of Us Part II is similarly obscured. You’ll find a note on the notice board in the gym’s coffee shop which says the safe code is the same as the wireless password. But what’s the wireless password?

The Last of Us Part II hotel gym safe code note

There’s nobody around to ask. No helpful barista in the coffee shop or trainer in the gym to give you the password. So how do you find the code to open it, then? Well, you could skip down a little bit and find the answer. We will supply it.

But if you want to know where to find it for yourself? Look out for the reception desk. It’s behind some glass doors labelled “Hotel BlacRay” in the room with the free weights and cardio equipment. (That’s the personal trainer’s reception desk in the gym itself, not in the hallway outside. And if you’re in the pool area, you need to go through the changing rooms to find it.)

Behind the desk, there’s a sign with the wireless passcode which is, coincidentally, a six-digit number. That’s not a very secure wireless passphrase. It would not take very long at all to crack that and isn’t particularly realistic. But the fact it’s a six-digit number should make you suspicious.

You guessed it. The wireless passcode is also the hotel gym safe code. You’ll find the safe in the cupboard across the corridor from the gym area, next to the stairwell. (And the code is 121879, if you can’t be bothered to look, but it’s mere metres away. That’s lazy.)

What is ‘the big win’ safe code in The Last of Us Part II?

One of the safe codes in The Last of Us Part II is more difficult to solve than the others. What is “the big win”, then?

Published

on

The Last of Us Part II The Big Win safe code
Naughty Dog / Thumbsticks

One of the safe codes in The Last of Us Part II is more difficult to solve than the others. What is “the big win”, then?

The Last of Us Part II does something interesting with its codes for doors, gates and safes. Where most games would have you simply learn the code, then once that’s ticked off in your quest log, will handle the mechanics of entering the code automatically. In Part II, you need to not only learn the codes but remember and enter them manually.

Sometimes, that’ll mean codes written down on a sheet of paper. You’ll find that in your inventory of collectables to refer back to. Other times, the code won’t be revealed directly in a note or letter, so much as hinted at.

Most of the time, that’s pretty obvious: “The code for this safe is the same as the code for the East Gate,” or something of that ilk. Or perhaps it will point you to something in the environment; one such instance has the code written on a drywipe board not 20 feet from the safe it opens. (Information security and environmental storytelling have forever been at odds, haven’t they?)

But there’s one safe code in The Last of Us Part II that’s a bit more cryptic, a bit less obvious:

PS. Still using “the big win” as the combination.

So what is “the big win”, then?

We racked our brains over this one for a while. Maybe it’s a date of something, a big victory for a sports team, perhaps? Given that this safe is found in Seattle, and the Seattle Seahawks have won the Super Bowl once, we wondered if that might be it? But the Seahawks won their only pennant on February 2, 2014 – 02/02/14 – which is after Cordyceps Brian Infection “outbreak day” on September 26, 2013. The world already ended just before the Seahawks won the Super Bowl. That’s sad.

Could it be some sort of puzzle or substitution, then? We thought about the position of the first letters of the three words in the alphabet – T = 20, B = 02, W = 23 – which didn’t work, either. There didn’t seem to be any obvious solutions.

So we went back to the building where we found the note to search for more clues and spotted the answer almost instantly. On the corkboard, near to where the note is found, is a lottery ticket. And on that lottery ticket, ringed in red, are three numbers. “The big win” refers to a winning lottery ticket that they’ve pinned up on the board for posterity.

It’s quite a small clue, so you can be forgiven for missing it. You’ll also need to squint a bit to see it, especially if you’re not put a scope on your rifle yet. So if you’re still struggling, “the big win” code in The Last of Us Part II is 17-38-07.

Inside “the big win” safe you’ll find a hunting pistol – a powerful, single-shot beast that can be upgraded with a scope – and a bunch of ammo. It’s worth busting that one open.
