Your guide to fishing in Fortnite Season 4

Here’s everything you need to know about fish types, where to find fish, rare fish, and all other information about fishing in Fortnite Season 4.

Published

on

Outside of the Marvel theme and the handful of map changes, the fishing system received the largest update in Fortnite Season 4. For the first three seasons of Chapter 2, we only had four fish to play with. Now, we have nearly 40.

The old fishing Punch cards didn’t get too much attention. They were monotonous and boring to complete. This season, however, a lot more players will be interesting in catching all 39 fish. To do that, you’re going to need some guidance.

Let’s start by listing all of the fish types in the game along with where you can find them. This information will help you fill out the fishing Punch Card as fast as possible.

Keep in mind that some of these fish are tied to specific locations. Others will only be available at night, and some will require a Pro Fishing Rod to catch.

Anywhere

  • All normal Flopper types
  • Black and Blue Shieldfish
  • Blue Slurpfish
  • Blue Small Fry (Night only)
  • Light Blue Smallfry
  • Molten Spicyfish
  • Purple Top Smallfry
  • Purple and Orange Thermalfish
  • Silver Thermalfish
  • Slurp Jellyfish
  • Tan Small Fry

Coastal

  • Black Slurpfish (night only)
  • Black Striped Shieldfish
  • Chum Hop Flopper
  • Purple Jellyfish
  • Raven Thermalfish (Pro Rod)
  • Sky Blue Spicy Fish

Mountain

  • Atlantic Hop Flopper (Pro Rod)
  • Peely Jellyfish (Pro Rod)
  • Purple Slurpfish
  • White Spotted Spicy fish

Forest

  • Coho Hop Flopper
  • Drift Spicy Fish
  • Green Shieldfish
  • Green Thermalfish
  • Red and Green Thermalfish

Swamp

  • White Slurpfish (Night & Pro Rod)
  • Chinook Hop Flopper
  • Cuddle Jellyfish
  • Southern Spicy Fish
  • Yellow Slurpfish

New Fish types in Fortnite Season 4

As we’ve covered, Epic added a ton of new fish to the loot pool in Chapter 2 Season 4. Although there will be nearly 40 fish when the season concludes, not all of them grant different effects. There are, for instance, five types of Slurpfish in the game but they all do the same thing.

You’ll want to grab all of these if you’re trying to max-out your Fishing book, but a Slurpfish is a Slurpfish if you’re only interested in game mechanics. Now, let’s take a look at the new types of fish that Epic added in Season 4:

  • Vendetta Flopper (unreleased): “Eat me! I’ll mark nearby enemy.”
  • Spicy Fish: “Spicy! Consume to gain speed boost.”
  • Hop Flopper: “A Flopper with mad hops. Consume to gain low gravity.”
  • Jellyfish: “Squeeze to splash nearby players and instantly apply Health and Shields to them.” (Chug Splash mechanics)
  • Shield Fish: “Consume for juicy shields”
  • Thermal Fish: “Consume to see it all.” (Thermal vision)
  • Midas Flopper: Consume to turn your entire inventory gold.

Interestingly, the Fishing achievements track your progress in Battle Lab, meaning you can grab all of these fish in a private match if you like. We recommend setting the time of day to “night” when using this method. There aren’t any fish that are exclusive to daytime, but there are a few that are only available at night.

The same goes for your Fishing Rod. It only costs 100 of each material type to upgrade from a normal to Pro Fishing Rod, so hit up an Upgrade Station if you can’t find a Pro Fishing Rod on the ground.

Hopefully, this all makes finding all of the fish in Season 4 a bit easier, at least. The Midas fish is incredibly elusive, but it’s not a part of the Fishing book – meaning you can complete it without catching the Midas Flopper. Good luck, fishermen!

Patch Notes

Fortnite v14.20: what to expect

Here’s what to expect in the next Fortnite update: v14.20.

Published

on

It’s been two weeks since the last Fortnite patch, and all signs are pointing to the v14.20 patch coming this week. We’re writing this before any official announcement, but our best guess is that there’s a patch incoming tomorrow, September 22.

We have a few ideas of what’s to come, including the bug fixes that come with nearly every patch. Let’s get into it.

Bug Fixes

As always, there are several issues that should be resolved when v14.20 goes live. Here’s a list of all of the bugs that are listed as “Fixed in Next Game Update” on the Fortnite Community Issues Trello board:

  • Fishing Spots can disappear on PC with Effects set to Low.
  • Replays not saving on PlayStation 4.
  • Heroes Park and Ghost House don’t count as Discovered Locations after discovering them.
  • Groot Awakening Island Missing
  • Redline Ramirez’s Commander Perk doesn’t work properly with charged Sniper Rifles. (Save the World)
  • Inconsistent Fishing Spot visibility on Nintendo Switch and Android.

2020 Birthday Celebration

Fortnite: Battle Royale released on all platforms on September 26, 2017. That means that Fortnite’s third birthday is coming up – on Saturday, to be exact.

Each year that passes, Fortnite brings some sort of celebration to the game. The past two years have given us free cosmetics along with some birthday-themed challenges.

We don’t have a ton of information about what will come this year apart from some leaked weapon wraps, but we’ll almost certainly get some more details when the patch comes out.

The next hero or POI

This is a general prediction, but we think that another batch of hero abilities and/or a new POI will come to Fortnite when v14.20 goes live.

We saw Stark Industries come in the last patch and most fans assume that some of the abilities in Marvel Standoff will come to the base game at some point. In v14.20, we could see any of these abilities with their accompanying hero as a boss or another hero we haven’t seen yet.

Again, this is only a prediction and doesn’t have too much tangible evidence behind it.

Wolverine fortnite

Now, all that’s left is to wait for an announcement. We’re pretty confident in our prediction of a patch coming this week, even if it doesn’t go live tomorrow.

Of course, we’ll update this post if our prediction is wrong or if we learn more ahead of the update.

DreamHack Open ft. Fortnite September results

Alliege, Marz, and Teeq take home first place in each region for the DreamHack Open Fortnite September tournament.

Published

The DreamHack Open September Fortnite tournament is in the books with Alliege, Marz, and Teeq taking home the victory in each region. The NA-East and EU stages of the competition took place over the weekend with NA-West wrapping-up on the 13th.

The tournament saw some rising stars along with some returning champions place at the top of the heap. Here’s a look at the full results for each region.

NA-West DreamHack Open results

The NA-West region was the first to finish the DreamHack September tournament on the 13th. After several qualifications and lackluster placements, Alliege put it all together and won the tournament. He was followed by 5G Nach and one of the most dominant players in the region, Arkham.

Several NA-East players went off-ping to place highly on NA-West. Dubs came in at 8 and Jamper placed 11 – padding his purse for the event. Other noteworthy finishes include Cented at 6, Lanjok at 9, and Whofishy at 12.

NA-East DreamHack Open results

A rising star in the Fortnite scene, Marzz_OW, took home first place in the NA-East region with 293 points. The win was a long time coming for Marz, who has been grinding competitive Fortnite since the early days. It’s good to see him take the win.

Behind Marz was, unsurprisingly, Bugha. Bugha remains one of the best solo Fortnite players in any region – continuing to prove himself tournament after tournament. A portion of the competitive Fortnite fanbase likes to pretend that Bugha is “washed,” but the pro constantly proves that his World Cup win was anything but a fluke.

Other noteworthy finished include MackWood at 7, Jamper at 8, Slackes at 11, Zexrow at 17, Unknown at 21, and Bizzle at 22.

European DreamHack Open results

Teeq proves that he’s one of the most dominant Fortnite players in EU with yet another DreamHack Open win. He took home the DreamHack July competition as well and adds a September victory to his portfolio.

Znappy and Verox had identical statistics in second and third place, but Znappy won the tiebreaker. Some noteworthy players who finished outside of the top 15 include Th0masHD at 17 and BenjyFishy at 18.

Stats via: FortniteTracker

Next up for competitive Fortnite will be the FNCS Trios, which should begin within the next couple of weeks. After that will be another DreamHack Solo tournament in October.

In the meantime, competitive Fortnite fans can wet their appetite with Ninja Battles, region-locked Cash Cups, and daily pro scrimmages streamed on Twitch.
