Fortnite Chapter 2 mechanic inspires “Fishing LTM” community creation

Published

on

Fortnite Chapter 2 revitalized the game for many with new mechanics to the core game that shook up how players approach the battle royale, leading to a great LTM concept.

A lot of players have been relearning the game ever since the black hole event resulted in a new era for Fortnite complete with an entirely different map with some new features laced throughout the game.

Epic Games introduced different mechanics not seen before in Fortnite like Dolphin Diving, interactions with the new boats, fishing and more, so it’s no surprise that players are taking these additions to create unique ideas to push the game even further.

In a Reddit post, user ‘Bukakanga’ laid out the groundwork for a new LTM that would feature the new FIshing Rods put into the second chapter for the game

“It’s obvious, but can be very absurd,” they said. “First one ever Battle Royale Fishing ONLY mode.”

As most Fortnite players know by now, fishing can net players a ton of items in a pinch ranging from mats to ammo and even weapons.

While it’s meant to be used as a supplementary way of getting helpful supplies, this LTM would make it the only way to farm inventory items.

In their ruleset, Bukakanga makes it so that “every player gets a fisherman skin,” while exchanging the Pickaxe for a rod.

There would be absolutely no loot to be acquired via chests, floor loot, or harvesting mats in the traditional sense: “Only loot you can get – is loot from fishing.”

Obviously the LTM would increase the number of fishing holes, while also improving the “amount and quality” of fishing loot a player would be able to get on the hook.

Even though kills and respawns are activated, a win would be awarded to the squad or player who catches a certain amount of fish.

Since this would be an almost exclusive fishing game, the final circle would “always end up on a lake, bay or a central river’s crossing.”

This would be one of those bizarre LTMs that completely changes the rules of Fortnite, but if history has told us anything those are the most memorable modes.

Fortnite Chapter 3 has just entered its second season, and it’s off to a great start. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ended without much warning ahead of time from Epic Games. In fact, only a day before the Season ended did we get an announcement for Season 2.

Regardless, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is off to a hot start. We have new POIs, weapons, and a flashy new Battle Pass. There’s also no building to start and an ongoing turf war.

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End?

Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 3, 2022. This means the second season of the new chapter will last a little less than three months making it fairly short compared to Season 1.

This end date was found in the in-game files by data miners. Unlike last season where Epic Games listed two season end dates, there is only one end date this time around.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?

New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 3 to start on June 4.

That being said, leaker Shiina believes there will be an extended period of downtime after the season ends to prep for Season 3. We will know more about this delay as time draws closer.

Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event?

The final update for Fortnite Season 2 is here and we now have confirmation that, yes, there will be a live event!

The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping the new Doomsday Device from going off at Loot Lake. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

What Season is Fortnite on?

Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the second season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 2”, it’s technically Season 20.

There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.

For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.

Fortnite Season 2 adds not one but two Marvel characters to the game via the Battle Pass, but players might not be familiar with Prowler.

Season 2 started off hot with an amazing battle pass and a shocking removal of the game’s iconic building mechanic. Players were even more excited to see the Battle Pass had two crossover characters.

The first is Doctor Strange who has a new movie releasing in May. However, players may not be super familiar with the second crossover character. And it was surprisingly released alongside the Fortnite v20.20 update.

Prowler is an alias used by a number of people in the Marvel universe. But he most recently appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse as Miles Morales’ uncle. And the in-game skin is a similar depiction of the character.
