Season 3 of Fortnite has submerged most of the map and it looks as though new sea life will be migrating into the popular battle royale in the near future.

Epic Games deployed the major seasonal update on June 17, introducing an overhauled map along with all-new means of traversal across the aquatic landscape.

While the loot pool was expanded at the launch of the new season, players can expect even more additions as the weeks go by. New weapons and new locations have already slipped through the cracks. Now, the latest leak has uncovered five new types of fish in the game’s files.

Players have grown familiar with the Flopper, the Slurpfish, and even the extremely rare Mythic Goldfish. But the community could soon have a wider variety of sea creatures waiting for them in the ocean.


Prominent Fortnite dataminer ‘HYPEX’ verified a June 25 claim from ‘intercelluar.’ This claim alleged that “Fortnite is planning on adding new Flopper variants to the game.” This information proved to be accurate as files for five new types of fish were discovered “in the fishing spots loot pool.”

For the time being, these new items “are disabled.” While players can’t currently cast a line and hook the new fish, “Epic is still testing them,” meaning they should eventually be added into the battle royale live state.

The new items being tested cover a wide array of functions. Here’s an overview of all five fish types that could soon be in Fortnite Season 3:

  • Thermal Flopper
  • Shield Flopper
  • Jelly Flopper
  • Hop Flopper 
  • Fire Flopper

There’s no telling exactly how these new items will shake up the battle royale title. Though assumptions can be made based on the titles. Shield Flopper will obviously provide some amount of shield upon use.

The Hop Flopper could boost your jumping height for a short window of time. While the Thermal or Fire Floppers could deal damage over time with the new fire-spreading mechanic in Season 3.

There could be five new creatures soon lurking under the sea in Fortnite Season 3.

No potential release date has been outlined for the new Floppers. With no images of the items in-game, it’s likely they’re still a ways off. “I think they’re still quite early in development,” the leaker said. “So might take a while before they’re finally shipped.”

As more and more leaks float to the surface throughout Fortnite’s latest season, we’ll be sure to keep you updated on all the latest reveals.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
