First Mythic Goldfish footage captured in Fortnite

The Mythic Goldfish is the rarest item in Fortnite – so much so that some players even question whether or not it’s even in the game. The first footage of the Mythic Goldfish in Fortnite has now been revealed.

The Mythic Goldfish is the rarest item in Fortnite – so much so that some players even question whether or not it’s even in the game. The first footage of the Mythic Goldfish in Fortnite has now been revealed.

Epic made a long list of positive changes to Fortnite in Season 2 – not the least of which is the addition of fishing. Fishing is an excellent way to get powerful weapons and healing items, which helps to reduce the reliance on RNG.

Fishing will net your rare or better items along with some of the best healing items in the game: Floppers and Slurp Fish. You’ll also get a Tin Can in rare cases, which deals 20 damage to an opponent.

It never seems to be worth carrying a Tin Can. This is more of a “bust” fishing item than anything else.

Since Season 2 came out, the above chart was assumed to be all that was currently available in the fishing loot pool. There was some talk about the Mythic Goldfish, but most players assumed it was an urban legend or a leaked item.

The Mythic Goldfish reportedly does 90 damage to opponents and allows you to pick it up again once you throw it. Still, it seemed like no one had ever encountered it and players assumed it would be coming with a later update.

Now, though, the first footage of the Mythic Goldfish has been revealed. Unfortunately, it’s from the perspective of someone who felt its wrath.

So, it would seem as though the Mythic Goldfish is indeed in Fortnite. It’s hard to know about these things without some official patch notes.

The Mythic Goldfish is the second Mythic item Epic has added to Fortnite – if we don’t count those added with events like the Infinity Gauntlet or the Batman items. The first was the Infinity Blade, and we know how that went.

This Mythic item appears to be completely different, though. It’s obviously extremely rare with only one confirmed sighting of the Goldfish. It also isn’t overpowered. It does less damage than a sniper shot – which would have taken this player out just the same.

The addition of the Mythic Goldfish is just, plain cool. Imagine how excited you’d be to get one – even if it’s not a best-in-slot item.

Let us know what you think about the Mythic Goldfish in the comments!

How to enter vaults without a keycard in Fortnite Season 3

The Fortnite vault glitch has returned for Season 3; this time, with a different method.

Published

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 was the first season to introduce vaults. It was also the first season in which players found an exploit to get into the vaults without a keycard. This method was popularized by YouTuber OrangeGuy, who showed fans how use a boat and a few building materials to enter a vault without killing the boss.

This exploit existed for most of Season 2, but was patched when season 3 came out. Well, as you may expect, it didn’t take long for players to figure out another way to get into the vault without a card. Instead of a boat, this exploit requires a helicopter.

For preparation, you’ll need a Helicopter, Upgrade Bench, and a teammate. Here are the steps you’ll need to complete in order to get into the vault without a card:

Step 1: Destroy the tile covering the vault you want to enter
Step 2: Land the helicopter on the broken floor
Step 3: Switch seats and begin to build
Step 4: Have a teammate throw the Upgrade Bench underneath the helicopter

If you complete these steps correctly, you should be pushed under the map and into the vault. Here’s a tutorial from Glitch King that will show you the step-by-step walkthrough.

Getting out of the vault is now your problem. This glitch is meant to surprise and eliminate an enemy, but you could always send your teammate to kill the boss and let you out if no one comes by. This isn’t the most broken method in the world, as you’ll be trapped if you don’t open the vault the normal way. Still, it can make for a funny clip or two.

This method takes a bit more setup than last season’s, but we may still see a streamer or two surprised by someone hiding in a closed vault. Only time will tell.

Fortnite pro, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf, became a household name overnight when he took home the first Fortnite World Cup Solos competition in 2019. The relatively unknown pro catapulted to the top of the Twitch charts when he returned home for the event, $3 million richer.

Now, Bugha can add another first to his resume – the first gamer signed to Gary Vaynerchuk’s new esports agency, VaynerGaming. The announcement came on July 14, the same day that the entrepreneur announced his company’s entrance into the gaming space.

In a press release that announced the new venture, Vaynerchuk stated, “I have been quietly paying attention to the gaming industry for over a decade, building relationships and following the trends. One of the most exciting things about it, for me, is the gamers themselves. And when I look at the culture, the interest in the sector from other athletes, artists, celebrities — it is enormous. This is a very significant expansion for VaynerSports.”

Bugha will be the first of many gamers to be represented by VaynerGaming as it expands into this new territory. We can expect some other high-profile signings from Fortnite and other top video games. It’s exciting to see gaming break through to the mainstream in this way, and could mean big things for the future of the Fortnite community.

Patch Notes

Epic disable the elusive Golden Mushroom in Fortnite

The Golden Mushroom has reportedly been disabled in all Fortnite modes.

Published

Almost all Fortnite players know about the Mythic Goldfish in Fortnite Chapter 2 – the rarest item that Epic have ever added to the game. It’s so rare that fans wondered if it even existed for a while. Since its release, there’s still only been a handful of recorded sightings of the Mythic Goldfish.

In Season 3, Epic added another rare item to the game: The Golden Mushroom. According to data miners, this mushroom has the same chance to spawn as the Mythic Goldfish, making it one of the rarest items in all of Fortnite. To this day, we’ve only seen one clip of the Golden Mushroom outside of Creative Mode.

When the mushroom first came out, SypherPK put a county on its head. He offered his fans cash if they could find the mushroom in-game, and a bonus if they found it in a joinable Battle Lab match. Here’s the only known clip of the Golden Mushroom in Fortnite.

When Sypher picked it up and put it in his inventory, the Golden Mushroom turned into a regular old mushroom that only healed for five shield. This bug is likely why the item was disabled on July 13, according to data miner reports.

One of the rarest items in Fortnite should offer a reward for finding it. It seemed like this one had an issue that led to it becoming a disappointment. On July 13, Hypex tweeted that Epic pushed a hotfix to disable the Golden Mushroom.

At the time of writing, there’s still no mention of the Golden Mushroom on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello Board. The hunt appears to be stalled – at least, for the time being. We’ll let you know when the Mushroom comes back to Fortnite but, for now, you can stop searching for it.
