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.

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

  • 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"

    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. :^)

  • PeffHus

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

  • 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

  • HCHS63rdWilsonZombie

    You don't know how to play a Vampire Lord properly lmao

  • 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.

  • Tactical Absol

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

  • 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.

  • 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?"

  • Mp3 Dalsten

    LOL, why was the heli near ANTI-AIR GUNS? Of course they're made out of paper, the bullets on those things rip it to shreds. It's not a tank and the heli doesn't look upgraded at all.

  • 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

  • Daniel Thompson

    Forget the forced third-person perspective while in vampire lord form, I'm still pissed about the forced third-person while riding a horse. Among the many other things that do so in Skyrim, that totally kills the immersion.

  • Variousnumber

    Annoying Radio DJ Three Dog. Hmm. I'm sorry Jane, but that doesn't add up. I'm sure you meant "Fantastic, lovely DJ, whose only being used here as he is a very recognisable character, and we couldn't be bothered to put up with Colonel Autumn." No need to thank me for the correction, we all knew what you were really thinking.

  • Kassem Shibbo

    Mike wasting 3 quarters of a million dollars to shoot a prick who bothered Andy is my all time favorite Bromance moment! <3

  • QorinHalfhand.

    Firstly,vampires ARE supposed to be hideous,they are the risen dead after all.Secondly have you heard about the necromage perk and how op its is if you are a vampire?

  • Dave D

    Ya’ll are just bad at skyrim lol

  • Justin Last

    8:14 "Fallout 3 is a sequel to a game called Fallout 2 because that's how numbers work"Then why the hell is Fallout 4 not called Fallout 5? Why is Fallout 76 called Fallout 76? THESE NUMBERS MAKE NO SENSE.

  • Ironcladkilljoy

    Theres like 99 mini nukes scattered around the wasteland, that's not including the few that respawn in vendors, and the ones in the dlc

  • Sain 7417

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

  • 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.

  • Team CLB

    The Master Cycle Zero from Breath of The Wild

  • Travis Williams

    You guys totally forgot the master spells from Skyrim, seriously, the cast times on those things are insane and 99% of the time they are outclassed in damage and effect.

  • Inell Lumba

    Vampirism sucks but Lycanthropy is pretty worth it in skyrim. I mean your soul belongs to hircine but like the worst you'll get from people is them asking if you've been tending to your hounds because you smell like a wet dog. But then again my soul also Belongs to like every daedric prince I've come across

  • ASlimySlugIsInvadingYourBase

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

  • Dravonion

    I was kinda crap at MGS5 so I ended up abusing the shit outta peaquad and tbh I really liked it when flight of the valkyries played and a swarm of missiles and a hail of bullets was sent towards and pesky commies and walker mechs

  • Chris Basu

    Was that “kids of America” playing in the background of metal gear solid V ?

  • Drakavon

    Becoming A Grey WardenPros:1. You can sense Darkspawn2. You're the best of the best3. You're one of the select few that can save the world4. You meet possible DA bae AlistairCons:1. Moment you enter Ostagar you can't chicken out or you'll get killed2. Gotta go out into VERY dangerous Wilds to get Darkspawn blood3. The Joining CAN kill you4. Forced to watch as 2 potential grey wardens DIE5. Watch every Grey Warden, your mentor, and king die!6. King's former general wants your head and seeks to be king/dictator7. Only 30 years left to live8. Darkspawn can sense you back9. Saving the world can result in yours or another's death

  • Fred Blues

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

  • Throttle Kitty

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

  • Nick

    For weapons, the Last Wish comes to kind from Destiny 2.

  • TheWerewolfofsalem

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

  • 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.

  • Mike Warnke

    Vampire lord? Lol get mods newbs.

  • Nate Andersen

    “No puns intended” intend your puns, coward!

  • Tyler Neuburger

    *complains about weak piquod**uses un-upgraded piquod as example*

  • DrRocketman 779

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

  • Nicholas Epsilon

    The Armageddon spell should be renamed for outside xbox's Mike..Ar-Mike-geddon.. I mean, he's known for killing everyone.. Seems fitting.

  • Lilith Da Hobbit

    Bearded Andy in a sweater is my kink

  • 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?

  • First Cooommment

    7:30 I mean it's nothing new, if your parents are MMO fanatics. Lol

  • 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.

  • Chris Mancini

    Not to go crazy into Skyrim builds or anything, but anyone who knows anything about Skyrim will instantly recognize Necromage. Makes Vampires better to say the least.

  • Maxisamo1

    Number 7 should be switched out for being a normal Vampire in Oblivion

  • 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.

  • ShadowFox74D

    In case nobody knows this, if you call Pequot in to pick you up in an area that is heavily populated with enemies it does not count against your ranking and they will still fire at enemies because the area will be too hot for them to land.


    AVOCADO -Bayonetta best move ever

  • Salamander The bullfrog

    0:06 But Sea Of Thieves was great.....?

  • shadowkeandre

    Just because you cant use R. Mika correctly doesn't make it useless lol

  • 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.

  • The Dapper Snake

    This needs to be updated the vampire lord is op now with the lowering of the fire weakness and you no longer need to feed

  • Justin Vance

    Pquad works great just don't expect it to come in a do your job for you. It's more of a distraction like most of your tools need to get somewhere and too many guards. Call the chopper to a spot a bit away they run to fight it and you can strut in.

  • docette2015

    I guess what I don't get about the vampire thing in Skyrim is why feeding makes you LESS powerful. I mean, how the hell does THAT work? You literally have to STARVE yourself to get access to the best vampire bonuses, and it also results in your becoming a creature of the night that everyone hates instinctively? And if you do feed, you're weaker, and people still hate you because you're chugging either their or loved one's blood? Yeah, becoming a vampire in that universe does totally suck. WTF, Skyrim.. . .that orbital strike against the dude griefing you during your DeLorean heist was totally legit, though.

  • diamondtron01

    72 Mini Nukes in the game? I beg to differ milady. In every playthru, I buy my nuclear pile (phrasing) from Rivet City.

  • Frank R. Ashby, Jr.

    What no noisy butterfly from resident evil 4...great gun but NO AMMO!

  • 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.

  • qdllc

    Did not know about the book at the end of Fallout 2, but if you built your character right and got all the upgrades, you were pretty much a god of the wasteland anyhow.

  • Matthew Nickles

    Dark Souls 3 - Pestilent Mercury... such a let down.

  • Xeth247

    "for the following games:"slow clap for Bethesda

  • Danny Merfeld

    Ocarina of Time's Ice Arrows. Going through the entirety of the Gerudo Training Ground to get something that you will never use just bites.

  • Dungeon lord

    What about fallout 4 fatman with mre and two shot legendary

  • strifera

    That No Man's Sea burn.

  • Do;jk sesdfjibjs figduhv bfd bj dgsiub ndfunijfol

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

  • KageRyuuUji

    Don't quite think getting something that is incredibly useful at the end of the game qualifies for "more trouble than it's worth".

  • The Poet Of Fall

    I mean, the GTA space canon seems perfectly balanced to me...Imagine your enemy griefing you with that, rather than a fighter jet.

  • Rowdy Rob Gaming

    I’m a simple man, I hear Brittania, ALL HAIL LELOUCH

  • Milkymalk

    What about Pyramid Head's cleaver?

  • James Newlan

    "Fallout 3 is sequel to Fallout 2 because that's how numbers work" Don't you work for xbox the company that thinks 1 comes after 360

  • Zack Stewart

    Meteor in Final Fantasy IV is what happens when you give an angry old man the most powerful spell in the game. You use it against Golbez and it doesn't kill him but kills the old man. oops.
