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)

  • Purple and Orange Thermalfish
  • Silver Thermalfish
  • Slurp Jellyfish
  • Tan Small Fry

  • Black Striped Shieldfish

  • White Spotted Spicy fish

  • Drift Spicy Fish
  • Green Shieldfish
  • Green Thermalfish
  • Red and Green Thermalfish

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!

Fortnite Creative Mode could be getting a huge expansion

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios, according to a recent leak.

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.

Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.

Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.

Fortnite Creative beta

Over a year ago, way back in, Fortnite v12.10, files were added to the game that we assumed would bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.

A year after we first heard the news about an updated Creative Beta, we still have yet to see this in practice. Since it’s been so long, many players forgot that it was even on the horizon.

After the v15.50 update, however, data miners found some new files that relate to the Creative Mode expansion. According to them, Epic are testing a beta of Creative that should support 50 players.

Such a change would be a massive step for the game. You could truly play a mini-BR game with your friends if this change went through. YouTube creators and streamers could also manage private matches a lot easier, as there’s no chance of a code leak or an unwanted intruder.

The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.

Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what we’re talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.

Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.

Fortnite leaked skins & cosmetics from v15.50 update

Fortnite v15.50 update leaked skins

Epic Games have rolled out their first update in a few weeks, with the arrival of Fortnite patch v15.50, and a number of skins and cosmetics have leaked as a result.

These weekly updates were never missed in times gone by, however Fortnite Chapter 2 has been a lot more inconsistent in that sense. Some weeks there is a huge update with map changes, new crossovers and challenges – while others will just make very minor bug changes.

You can always read about what to expect from the patch here on Fortnite Intel, and alongside those patch notes, let’s run through some of the game’s unreleased outfits.

Fortnite’s most recent crossover was with Street Fighter and Alien, but what’s next?

On March 2, once the downtime began, a number of leakers started looking into the game’s files to see what had changed. To their surprise, with just two weeks left in the season, not much had been tweaked in terms of content.

However, we do have some leaked skins and cosmetics to dig through – courtesy of Lucas7Yoshi and VastBlast.

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Newly-added Exotics (Update)

February 24 Exotic Shuffle (Update)

On February 24, Epic shuffled some of the original and new Exotic weapon locations, giving them to new NPCs across the Fortnite map. The Storm Scout Sniper, Nighthawk Revolver, and Hop Rock Dualies now have new homes. You can view them on the map, below.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic shuffle the locations once again, so we’ll update this map and article if we see any more changes.
