Fortnite Chapter 2 players might be casting their lines out with the hope of catching the ultra-rare Mythic Goldfish, but not all of them will know just what they’re getting themselves into. 

The Chapter 2, Season 1 achievements require players to fish out the rarest species of fish to be found on the new map and while this one might look a lot like a trophy, it has a much more interesting function than just being part of a challenge. 


As not many players have found the new Mythic Goldfish so far, there’s no doubt that it will come as a surprise when you’re struck by one out of nowhere. That’s right… It’s a throwable object!

Epic GamesIt might take you a while to find a Mythic Goldfish in Fortnite, but grabbing one will give you a huge advantage in close quarters.

Nobody was made more aware of that fact than Reddit user BlakeBenbow, who posted their first encounter with the new item on October 20, with no idea that the fish was even in the game yet. After all, not everybody has seen it. 


The player was dancing in Fortnite next to a structure that they had built, before being smashed over the head with the trophy, eliminating him from the match immediately.

With 59 health left, they were obviously vulnerable to attacks anyway, but with a huge amount of damage per hit on the new Mythic Goldfish, it made easy work of dispatching them back to the pre-game lobby. 

Those who are on the receiving end of a Goldfish throw will have 90 damage dealt, which is more than enough to take out opponents. In fact, it’s actually higher than Season 10’s Air Strikes (70) – which have since been sent to the vault.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
