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.

  • Noblesse Obligee

    Why isn't "becoming an adult" on this list? It's literally the worst ability you can get, not worth the horrendous exp-grind needed to unlock, and the few perks you DO get are outweighed by the debuffs, class "choice" system, progressive nurf to your skilltrees, and required Tax Event that the game forces you to participate in every year. I'd rather take a zerg rush. Not to mention having to fight the Puberty Boss is one hell of level-gate that no one is every prepared for. At least there's no micro-transactions.... EA.....

  • Facade but from Discord

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

  • Brooke Dodds

    "fallout 3 is the sequel to fallout 2, cause that's how numbers work"Xbox > Xbox 360 > Xbox One

  • Sorcikator Senpai

    The MIRV. The main use being, making a dump save and nuking everything inside of Megaton. You know you did it, we all did

  • NR T

    Andy: "Because that is how numbers work"Me: *Eyes Fallout 76 suspiciously

  • PeffHus

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

  • Jay Rossignol

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

  • ThatGuy WithEmail

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

  • WhizzGameplay

    No magic armour from Zelda Twilight Princess? The thing literally drains your money from your wallet to make itself work, and as soon as you run out of Rupees, you become unbelievably slow.

  • Bence Hetesi

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

  • Cazooboyevolved

    "That annoying radio DJ Tree-Dog"I'm sorry to say you absolutely earned that dislike. Rip

  • f4C3pWnRx45

    Flak and Shrapnel in Rivet City in Fallout sell mini nukes. They only have a couple at a time at most, but their inventory resets every few days.

  • loverofmonstergirls

    Using the mod Better Vampires makes being a vampire in Skyrim far better, awesome even.

  • A Slimy Slug

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

  • RipVanTacitusCornwallWinkle III

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

  • Tactical Absol

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

  • Void.

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

  • Franco Lumovich

    Vampire Lord doesn't hardened the game, joining The Blades does, unless you alredy have found all the shouts.

  • 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?"

  • Anarchy Antz

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

  • Creed Of The Machine

    I think what’s really fun is to play through with the dawnguard as a werewolf, you even get some unique dialogue

  • Diamond Raymond

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

  • Zanzubaa1

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

  • Throttle Kitty

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

  • 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.

  • James OKeefe

    I watched the live stream of the orbital cannon event and it was brilliant :) That was one of the best streams. Everything on the mission stopped to go after this guy. It was great. Totally worth it! :) Love OX!

  • 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.

  • Fred Blues

    Of the 804 dislikes, how many were 3Dog fans?

  • 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.

  • thesunvanished

    That's strange there is only 72 mini nukes cause I stocked up on mine and had 123

  • valle wabbel

    Vampire Lord is still 100x better than werewolf form

  • Zach Lenk

    But only regular vampires get attacked on sight vampire lords do not

  • DrRocketman 779

    Mannimarcus' Staff of Worms...reanimate target for x seconds...kinda useless.

  • Sain 7417

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

  • Antonio Arevalo

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

  • hashbrown 411

    Broooo wtf is that haircut 💀💀💀


    Well the reason why Auriel's bow is in the game is the combat the sunlight problem.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Dextrio Redfox

    Just use auriels bows and illusion magic and you'll be fine.

  • Kaleb kolb

    Becoming a vampire on Morrowind was worse than oblivion and skyrim put together. Also, the boots of blinding speed in Morrowind which you mentioned are useless by themselves, But accompanied with the Saviors hide chest piece found in Tel Fyr which dispells 100% Makes them completely useable and s great way to travel at great speeds.

  • Fany Gradín

    In skyrim I have overcomr the vampire lord handycap

  • cgwworldministries

    OX: that's how numbers work. Actual xbox: hold my beer

  • TheBerserkGamer

    Anyone else think when the last nuke went off it was going to the Skyrim transition

  • TheWerewolfofsalem

    2 Bethesda games on one list?Who’d have guessed?

  • Amazingly Awkward

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

  • IcedMB

    I think my skyrim is bugged. Nobody ever attacked me with stage 4 vampirism. I had only a few mods but none for vampires.

  • Nate Andersen

    “No puns intended” intend your puns, coward!


    literally started the dawnguard DLC a day before watching this, glad I chose to stay a Nord and not turn Into that abomination

  • Jamin Busack

    Vampires are chumps. Dawn guard all the way.

  • Promiscuous Dope Fiends Official

    What kind of realistic helicopter pilot is going to sit above an enemy target and mini gun them. They’d strafe through through area in short bursts of aggression to avoid fire.Precisely aimed missiles, covering fire, and quick maneuvering are necessary for helicopter warfare.

  • Sean Albro

    Mirabelle the Musket in Jade Empire. You'd think having a gun in ancient China would be op af, but it's a 1700s musket that takes forever to reload

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Splitting Productions

    I like that with all those negative things said about being a vampire lord for me the only thing that sucks to me is the fact that I can't loot XD That's really it. I kinda like the side effects for the rp perspective of the game.

  • Dusty Boot

    Interesting concept, but the first part of this video bored me to tears. I don't think I'll finish it.

  • Terminator356

    When I played a vampire in Skyrim I never had a problem with people attacking me at stage 4. I never drank blood the whole time I was playing. And for those of who will ask, at the time I was playing on Xbox 360. So no mods.

  • 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.

  • LectroPhobia

    Skyrim’s vampires weren’t as bad as they were in Oblivion, at least, from what I can remember. Still pretty bad though.

  • Kalen Boies

    Is that a mass effect Andromeda t shirt?

  • Gabz87

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

  • Glenn Mattson Jr.

    I never liked the Vampire Lord transformation, but if you actually know how to do it right, you can be severely OP as a vampire in Skyrim. Check out Fudgemuppet's video on The Necromage perk, and consider yourselves educated.

  • Alessio M

    The skyrim one is inaccurate, if you get stage 4 with dawnguard dlc no one will really recognize you, and (spoiler)you can fix the sun problem even without waiting for the night ,But it's still not worth it if everyone shout "vampire!" ,everytime there's an hostile entity nearby, weird bug

  • Mr. Coffee

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

  • kingbigboi

    also your thinking of sangonis vampire not vampire lord and you feed on them by sneaky when their asleep

  • Terique

    AVOCADO -Bayonetta best move ever

  • Tony Zan

    Rocket launcher in the GTA games should be on this list.

  • Jeremiah the Pisces

    Dbz battle of z card called z sword....comes to mine...I powerful upgrade but will make u die faster lol

  • Emily Hansen

    So we arent gonna talk about the glide suit in crackdown 2?

  • Rugged Lemmings

    The thing that you seem to be forgetting about becoming a Vampire Lord in Dawnguard (other than the fact that no, people don't immediately attack you at Stage 4) is that...well...your character is now a vampire and probably should start behaving like one. Night becomes your new day (until you complete the main quest and can just give the sun a black eye any time you want). Seriously though, if you need to feed you're not just going to go into a house with 2/3 people awake and in the same room as the person you're going to bite...vampires are sneakier than that. There's also plenty of ways to compensate for your weakness to fire (be they racial traits or just getting fire resistance enchantments). Another thing to note is that unless town guards or civilians actually SEE you turn into a Lord, you'll loose all of your bounty for whatever you did in the Vampire Lord form once you get away and change back to normal (since the guards/civilians had no way to know who that Vampire Lord actually was) much like how you can put on the Grey Fox's Cowl in Oblivion, do whatever you want, then lose all of your bounty once you take it off.On top of all of this, the Vampire Lord form makes for a great "Oh shit!" button if you find yourself losing on a fight (assuming you're not outside in the day and haven't shot out the sun). The AoE Drain Health does a crap ton of damage while healing you for a ridiculous amount...really that's all you need, everything else - like the Gargoyles that absolutely murder everything - is just icing on the cake.You can say you just don't like the vampire playstyle (being forced into 3rd person every time you change forms and having trouble with doors are definitely two of the very valid complaints that come with being a vampire), but "more trouble than it's worth"? I'd say not, you just have to actually enjoy playing the game as though you were playing a vampire, and thus play as though your character were a vampire...because they are....................all that said, I still have way more fun as a modded werewolf that has a random chance of spontaneously changing at sun-down and being forced to stay in ww form the entire night. :^)
