Leak

30+ new fish types found in Fortnite game files

According to new Fortnite leaks, fishing is getting a complete overhaul ahead of Season 4.

Published

If feels like fishing has been in Fortnite forever, but it’s only been in the game since the release of Chapter 2 Season 1. Since then, it’s become one of the primary forms of obtaining powerful healing items in the game. Most pro players wouldn’t feel comfortable going into end-game without a stack of Floppers in their inventory.

The mechanic has changed very little since its first release – with the only adjustment coming by way of Harpoon Guns a few weeks after Season 1 began. Now, months later, fishing looks identical to how it did back then.

That might not be true for long, however. In the Fortnite v13.40 update, data miners found a host of new fish types in the game files. By our count, there are over 30 new fish types in here – not including Floppers, Slurpfish, and Small Fries that appear to be shown here as well.

We don’t know a lot about these new Floppers, but Hypex tweeted some numbers that correspond to some of what we’re seeing.

There are figures for healing statistics, duration, and radius – which indicates that some of these fish will heal you over time while others may heal you and your teammates.

Fellow data miner, FireMonkey, tweeted some names for these fish as well. There is going to be a ton of variety in the fishing holes, pretty soon. According to FireMonkey, these fish probably won’t come out until Season 4, although that’s only speculation and could be incorrect.

Along with these new fish come new challenges. They relate to catching all of the different types of fish and adding them to your collection. You’ll receive achievements for catching new fish, rare fish, and more.

This fishing update couples with the older news that Epic are adding a new Fishing Rod to Fortnite. We covered this a couple of weeks ago, but you can look at all of the details on this new item here. According to FireMonkey, you’ll need this rod to catch some of the unreleased fish.

Hopefully, these fish come to Fortnite sooner rather than later. Adding variety to the fish loot would be awesome, and we already have several ideas about where they could go with this. There appear to be certain fish linked to a time of day and we could see some regional fish pop up. We’re excited to see what happens.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
