Elden Ring boss Radahn has attacks you still haven't even seen

An Elden Ring player has just discovered a hidden attack that Starscourge Radahn has been sitting on for months. 

FromSoftware's soulslike came out in February, giving masochistic players an abundance of time for repeated playthroughs. Since its launch, the relationship between Elden Ring players and the game's bosses has been a rocky one. Updates have nerfed cheesing methods, as well as accidentally making Radahn easier to beat before promptly giving him his power back.   

But if you think you finally have Radahn all figured out, think again. After beating the game five times already, children's book illustrator Emma Ward ran into this surprise spin attack which she shared on Twitter

The replies suggest Radahn's whirling dance of death is as much of a shock to the Elden Ring community at large as it was for Ward. One Twitter user says they've sunk over 200 hours into the game and have yet to see it. Someone else has beaten the game around six times and didn't encounter it until this week.

There are a couple of players claiming to have run into it on their first playthrough, with one saying it's happened every time they've encountered him. After much speculation about what could trigger the spin attack, including NG+ and good old RNG , one Twitter user thinks they have the answer.

"It's the spacing between you and him! This is a rarer attack for Radahn but if you're in the right range I think he can chain that move 3 or 4 times."

Still full of surprises

Radahn isn't the only Elden Ring boss surprising players with attacks so rare that barely anyone's seen them. In the same thread, @DNuatun posted a clip of Radagon  absolutely going to town on them.

"I beat the game so many times and have fought Radagon a lot, especially on my level 1 run and I've never seen him do this," exclaimed someone in the replies.

The revelations keep on coming, with @rao_ruthwik sharing a snippet of the Regal Ancestor Spirit rolling around like "regular goats". It was tweeted in response to another user sharing that tidbit of info.

The Elden Beasts grab attack is also news for some folks. And as @DNuatun goes on to comment,  "It just make me wonder how many attacks we have never seen...".

If you're running through the game and need some help with the big boys, be sure to swing by our Elden Ring bosses guide. It'll prepare you for some of the more common attacks at least. But at this rate, who knows what else the bosses have hidden up their sleeves.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

This popular open-source web server has some serious security flaws

OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, a globally popular open-source web server , was carrying a couple of high-severity vulnerabilities, experts have warned. Threat actors that managed to exploit these flaws would have been given full privilege remote code execution capabilities, noted researchers from Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity research arm.  The team found OpenLiteSpeed Web Server carried three high-severity vulnerabilities, namely CVE-2022-0073 (an 8.8 severity score, high-severity remote code execution flaw), CVE-2022-0074 (an 8.8 high-severity privilege escalation flaw), and CVE-2022-0072 (a 5.8, medium-severity directory traversal flaw). The vulnerabilities also affected the enterprise version, LiteSpeed Web Server. Patch ready Unit 42 has notified LiteSpeed Technologies of its findings which has, subsequently, patched the flaws, and released new versions of the server, urging users to update their software immediately.  Organizations using OpenLiteSpeed versions 1.5.1
