How rare are Mythic Goldfish in Fortnite Chapter 2?

The Fortnite Fishing Frenzy event has wrapped up, and over 25 million fish were caught over the weekend it ran, but barely any of those were Mythic Goldfish.

Fortnite Chapter 2 introduced a brand-new mechanic that allowed players to fish for things such as weapons, building materials, and even actual fish that healed you.

Epic Games decided to host a little competition over the weekend of November 22 and 24 that tasked players with catching a variety of fish, with six different prizes up for grabs.

One of those prizes was a Bottom Feeder pickaxe, which would be rewarded to anybody who caught a Mythic Goldfish. Amazingly, only 34 of those pickaxes were handed out as that’s just how many Mythic Goldfish were caught during the whole competition.

This makes Mythic Goldfish among the rarest things in all of Fortnite and for a good reason. If players can get their hands on one, it will dish out 200 damage to an enemy player, taking them out in one shot even if they have full health and shield.

While we don’t know the total number of fish that were caught throughout the competition, we do have confirmation that it was over 25 million.

Taking 25 million as the number of fish caught, that would leave players with just a 0.000136% chance to catch a Mythic Goldfish. Those are terrible odds, so if you’re ever trying to find one in the wild actively, it’s going to take an extremely long time.

Epic Games have never outright come out and said the actual odds of finding a Mythic Goldfish, but it’s looking like it’s a super low number.

There are three separate achievements tied to this goldfish – catching it, eliminating players, and one for being eliminated by it. This means the completionists out there will have to look hard if they want to do everything Fortnite has to offer.

A select few numbers have only seen the Mythic Goldfish of players, so it’s not surprising to see this little number fished up. What it does show is this is a scarce fish to find, so if you ever do find yourself with one, don’t put it to waste.

With this being a 1-shot elimination, you’ll only have one opportunity, so you better make sure it counts. Just know that the odds are certainly not in your favor.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
