7 Awesome Abilities That Were More Trouble Than They Were Worth

Sometimes in videogames you will often find yourself in possession of a weapon or ability that seems great at first, only to discover that when you use it, it's more trouble than it's worth. Here are just some of the times we’ve encountered that very thing. Enjoy, and subscribe for a video like this every Thursday, why not?

Take air support in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, for example.

Call in air support on your iDroid and your helicopter pilot Pequod storms in, playing his music at full volume and starts strafing everything in sight with miniguns, which alerts everyone to your presence, causes a load of mayhem, and stops you being able to score a perfect S rank on the mission.

He then usually gets shot down, costing you a bunch of money. Cheers Pequod.

    I've got a Fallout 4 mod that replaces nuke impact sounds with "THAT'S A LOTTA DAMAGE"

  • Slayer John

    When it came to Skyrim, I always did the Companions quest line early on to get the werewolf blood. All the perks, none of the cons. No one attacks you on sight (unless in wolf form). Immune to diseases. No sunlight damage. Plus the wolf form looks way more appealing. The only real con is the lack of rest bonus from sleeping. But let's face it, the only time we sleep in the game is when we get that urge to go to a shady inn where we get kidnapped by a crazy chick.

  • PeffHus

    Dark elf vampire with the necromage perk. Its worth it 125% of the time.

  • Bence Hetesi

    I am so disappointed that they didn't switch over to skyrim after the last fallout 3 nuke

  • Louis Jameson

    I transformed into a vampire lord when I had to fight Mercer Frey. I could see him even when he turned invisible and I had all the fun of wondering what Karliah and Brynjolf are thinking when I transformed. Worth it.

  • Antonio Arevalo

    And that's why being a werewolf is like 30 times better

  • Tactical Absol

    "Sometimes things that initially look like they might be great turn out to be a massive disappointment..." Looks at Mike's shirt 🤣😂

  • Throttle Kitty

    So that's how GTA Online made 6 billion dollars. They invented the "pay $10 to slap someone through the internet" button.

  • Jay Rossignol

    Just download the better vampires mod for skyrim and it makes it quite enjoyable

  • Mini Feebas

    actually, stage 4 vampirism doesnt make everyone hostile anymore with that same dlc

    The Fatman should not be used indoors...Tell that to EVERY Fallout 4 Speedrunner, EVER!

  • Sean Long

    Metal Gear Solid V fact: If you upgrade Pequod, it won't be "paper tissue" level of armor.

  • Gabz87

    Totally agree on Skyrim vampires...God that was terrible

  • Diamond Raymond

    Because that's how numbers work.*Square Enix laughs maniacally in the distance.

  • A Slimy Slug

    I'd say that becoming a Vampire was worse in Oblivion.

  • Amazingly Awkward

    16:19 biggest burn against Todd Howard since FO76's release ;)

  • Mr. Coffee

    GTA Online ?No, its time to stop.Its a loading simulator now anyways

  • Marcus Hough

    Being an adult is my addition to this list. I can set my own bed times sure, but I'm always super tired

  • aahelo

    I actually loved playing Skyrim, even as a normal vampire, and I thought that Vampire Lord was pretty cool.But I do acknowledge that there were plenty of downsides.For me it is all about the RP, not simply practicality or what's objectivly better.And things got a lot more fun when I installed the Better Vampires mod.As a side note:Stage 4 vampires were only "hated"/attack in vanilla Skyrim. It got removed with the Dawnguard DLC IIRC. So it was impossible to be "hated" as a Vampire Lord without mods (or possibly glitches).

  • Demize74

    I always preferred being a Werewolf in Skyrim... Especially with the Dawnguard DLC active. You're a fast, deadly, walking and running tank...

  • Malcolm Darke

    On a slightly less theoretically overpowered note, you'd think that the spell Stun from Might and Magic 6 would be at least marginally useful, given that it forces the target to go through its recovery before it can do anything again. It's also cheap, and available very early on.The problem comes when you realise that monsters have different recovery mechanics to the player-controlled party. They seem to operate on a fixed-time recovery, and the spell Stun doesn't actually trigger that. So it seems to exist purely to allow monsters to cast it on the party... except that there is literally no monster in the entire game which can cast Stun.

  • RipVanTacitusCornwallWinkle III

    Playing Billy Idol out of a helicopter is the most badass you can ever do

  • Ricky Smooth

    "Sometimes things that look great turn out to be a massive dissapointment." I can't believe he said that while wearing a Mass Effect Andromeda shirt.

  • Pianoman

    "Laser strike. Go now!"Ellen is best girl period

  • Okwaho

    The number of times I used fatman in fallout 3-4 and had it kill no one because a 2 foot concrete rail or a stair was in the way and it did almost no damage to any mobs blew my mind.The damage tracking for explosions in fallout has always been so unbelievably bad.

  • Joshua Polanco

    You should do the opposite of this. Abilities/weapons you thought were trash but ended up being amazing. I remember when I first played Half life 2 and got the gravity gun. Thought it was stupid picking up trash and throwing it at zombies. How wrong I was.

  • Genji, Reaper, and McCree

    Mike using the orbital canon to help Andy's revenge is the sweetest thing I'll ever see in Outside Xbox <3

  • Nate Andersen

    “No puns intended” intend your puns, coward!

  • Patrick Star

    Vampire Lord, not to forget it is as durable as a wet napkin.

  • Whiterun City Guard

    honestly i have to disagree with the vampire lord because you actually have to know how to use it

  • Mike H

    For the record, I like sea of thieves. Avid player here, and pirate legend

  • Lucifronz

    MGSV's air support is actually nice during total stealth missions later on. At least as a distraction.Then again, Quiet is much more useful.

  • Sahil Hussain

    Is it me or did Andy's beard get a whole lot more kratos-esque?

  • Pixel Whisper

    you weren't supposed to be attacked at stage 4 vampirism, even without being a vampire lord, at least not in the dawnguard DLC, tho it was a known bug to get attacked at that stage in dawnguard, which sucks, but hey, Bethesda, bugs are kinda their thing so

  • Apimpnamedslickback

    Fallout 2 is legit the best Fallout ever made.Change my mind.

  • coty batterson

    Jane is absolutely beautiful

  • Adam Beynon

    You're using the Experimental MIRV incorrectly, you forgot to move 2 postcodes over prior to firing!

  • Ezelion the Ironclad

    11:15Maxim 37. There is no 'overkill.' There is only 'open fire' and 'reload'

  • Vladislav Shaklein

    Can you please do your homework first? Skyrim's stage 4 is never a concern as long as Dawnguard is installed (which is 99% of the time), if you're not seen during feeding it's never a crime (either stealth or Vampire Seduction power is at player's service) and even then, you have Volkihar questgivers handing out blood potions left and right; you've got a whole damn quest chain devoted to being fully functional during the daytime, etc. Also, the aftermentioned power is the reason why you shouldn't be pretty as a vampire lord: you use illusion magic to play with people's minds, as the significant bonus to Illusion power for a vampire suggests. Watch less Twilight.

    “A drunk monk, if you will.”A dronk

  • Zanzubaa1

    Oh wait, Armageddon. Maybe the spell in Ready Player One was a reference to this then. Pretty cool.

  • Timothy McLean

    I'm amazed the Armageddon spell even works. You can't exactly test that sort of power out to make sure it's functioning correctly....I mean, you can, but then there's not much point writing down the spell anywhere.

  • Lord Dracul

    16:40 Fortunately there's a mod to fix that collision issue. Pfew!

  • Scott Craig

    I enjoy being a vampire in Skyrim. Dawnguard fixed the instant aggro on lvl 4, and the Vampire Lord is awesome once you get used to it.

  • Chris Gage

    Numbers are weird in games. Resident Evil 1,2,3 then 0Also you forgot any of the games where you obtain an ultimate weapon only to have it drain your life.

  • TheTorbjoern

    "Crash to desktop" from Magicka. It does exactly what is promised. To a random player.

  • Piano Fry

    Interplay: Okay Todd we did the first two can you keep goingTodd: Okay 3, New VegasInterplay: okay not in order but keep goingTodd: 4Interplay: Alright Todd: 76 Interplay: WTF

  • Anarchy Antz

    Andy, that is the ONLY way Billy Idol should be played, loud and large!

  • Sir Illuminar The Valient

    Ride of the Valkyries plus a rocket strafe

  • Exploring With Jonathan

    Lol outsidexbox just killed a tryhard in gta

  • Rikusgirl001

    That's why I mod Skyrim to reverse the vampire mechanics. I mean, how much sense does it make to starve yourself to get more powerful? Shouldn't it be the other way around where the more blood you drink the more powerful you get?

  • Harrowed One

    15:30 there is also the fact that you can just, y'know, join the Dawnguard and wait maybe ~1 hour to just become one before entering the soul cairn.

  • Sean Shogun

    In 4 I used the fat man to kill kellog and his men no regrets

  • Nipple Johnston

    Having enjoyed door gunning, I will say its most useful function is becoming exponentially more important than anything else they are doing, as soon as the noise generator starts up. Thankfully games get durability well wrong, the bird's durability anyways, the gunner is added to the endangered species list immediately after assignment.

  • Kozv

    >Complaining that vampirism is a tradeoffspoiler alert: its a curse

  • Japhet

    Didn't they remove the stage 4 hostility with Dawnguard?

  • Kay

    Vampire lords can't get ragdolled by fus ro dah. Great way to fight draugr deathlords without being their ping pong balls.

  • Umbra Deus

    started the vid 25min ago, finally finished... how is that you ask?straighttalk… nuff said

  • Toby Hine

    10:19 - Fatman launcher not the same as fatman launcherHooray English emphasis

  • Andy Mcp

    Reminds me of the magic armour from Twilight Princess.. You'll never take damage in battle!"Yes please!"It will constanty drain your money and stops working when you run out!"wait wha?"

  • Shawn Jackson

    Borderlands 2: Krieg : "Silence The Voices"

  • ClericDk123

    you Lack Fallout skills :D from Fallout to fallout 4 ;)

  • Kalen Boies

    Is that a mass effect Andromeda t shirt?

  • MadMusic26

    ...but I like Sea of Thieves :(
