Pokemon Go players will have a chance to get their hands on a Shiny Wynaut in the game’s 2021 New Year’s Eve celebration event.

Shiny hunting is a popular past-time for Pokemon fans. The rare creatures offer the ultimate bragging rights for trainers, as they come with different appearances and are some of the hardest Pokemon to get in the game.

Niantic have announced that players will have an increased chance at laying claim to a Shiny Wynaut during the game’s 2021 New Year’s Eve celebration event, which is sure to be popular with fans of the psychic-type Pokemon.

How to hatch a Shiny Wynaut in Pokemon Go

If you’re looking to get your hands on a Shiny Wynaut you’ll need to stock up on 2km Eggs, which can be found at random at PokeStops. Once you’ve got as many as you can carry, you’ll need to walk around until they hatch.

2km Eggs are common, and usually contain Pokemon species like Zubat or Fletchling, but during the NYE event, Wynaut will be hatching from them, and there’s a chance you’ll hatch a Shiny Wynaut.

The process is very simple, but it may take you some time. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Stock up on 2km Eggs, which appear at random at Pokestops.
  2. Walk around until the 2km Eggs hatch.
  3. Repeat until you get a Shiny Wynaut.

Fortunately, the game will be offering 1/2 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed in an Incubator during the NYE event, meaning you won’t need to walk as far to hatch your 2km Eggs.


When will Shiny Wynaut be in 2km eggs?

As the name suggests, the New Year’s Eve event starts on Thursday, December 31, 2020, at 10 PM local time and runs until Monday, January 4, 2020, at 10 PM local time.

This means you’ll have four days to hatch as many 2km Eggs as you can in your quest to bag yourself a Shiny Wynaut. Good luck, trainers!

As well as getting the chance to own a Shiny Wynaut, the NYE 2021 event will bring a number of exciting features including Slowpoke wearing 2020 glasses, Pikachu wearing a New Year’s hat, and new items for your avatar to wear.

NICKMERCS creates powerful FFAR Warzone loadout after Cold War nerfs

Twitch star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has got an interesting FFAR loadout for Call of Duty Warzone following the recent nerfs to the DMR and other weapons. 

The meta in Warzone is constantly evolving as Call of Duty fans try and get a leg up on their opposition in any way shape or form. 

Since the launch of Black Ops Cold War, it’s been all about the DMR, Diamatti’s, and MAC-10, but recent nerfs have got players searching for different choices. Some have gone back to the Modern Warfare weapons – the M4, AMAX, and Kilo-141, for example – while others have tried to find answers in Cold War.

The FFAR, which resembles the FAMAS from years past, has been the answer for some. It’s even got NICKMERCS trying it out and dropping a pretty nice loadout.

The FFAR has become of the best guns in Warzone.

The FaZe Clan member unveiled the loadout he’s been using in his January 16 video, noting that, even though its an assault rifle, it might make some of the SMGs obsolete. 

“However, I do think this FFAR could replace a lot of the SMGs,” Nick said. “I think the overall kit is a pretty good kit, and if you want to have some fun, this is a great class to do that.”

The accuracy does take a slight knock in Nick’s setup, however, the FFAR does get a nice little boost to both the range and mobility. It’s not exactly going to be a sniper or a KAR, but for what it is, it’s certainly nice and up there with some of the best weapons around right now. 

  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 21.2” Ranger
  • Underbarrel: Bruiser Grip
  • Ammo: Salvo 50 round fast mag
  • Stock: Raider Stock

The YouTuber does note, though, that it’s probably not going to be a class you see streamers running in tournaments. But, for a bit of fun and racking up kills, it’s certainly a nice change of pace. 

Plus, when the time comes and Raven rolls out a few more nerfs, everyone will be searching for the next best thing, and the FFAR should be up there. So, you may as well get used to it, if you’re not already.
