Fortnite Chapter 2 marked the introduction of fishing to the battle royale game and while there are some very good things to pull out from the water, many players will be looking to grab themselves a Mythical Goldfish. 

Just like any other season, Chapter 2’s Season 1 offers a whole host of different achievements to be completed and many of which, this time around, include what appears to be a rare catch: a big, gold fish! 

Members of the game’s online community shouldn’t feel stupid for not knowing how to catch it just yet, though, and that includes those of us that haven’t even seen one appear since the game’s major update rolling out on October 15. 

Epic GamesThere are also all sorts of weapons to catch while fishing in Fortnite Chapter 2.

After casting out, once you feel a bite and decide to reel in, you will typically be greeted with one of five items. These include materials, a random weapon, Slurpfish, Flopper, or Small Fry.

The last three can be used to heal your character, with the Slurpfish healing 50 shield and health, while the Flopper gives 50 and the Small fry is very similar to a bandage in terms of how much it helps – 25 per use.

Yet, these aren’t the only type of fish that will be able to be caught in Fortnite. 

EPIC GAMESHave you spotted a Mythic Goldfish in Fortnite just yet? Not everybody has.

Data miner HYPEX confirmed that the Mythic Goldfish was headed to the game and being released into the wild soon, making it available to catch, although it’s fair to say that not many players have actually seen it so far. 

Not only will this fish allow you to complete a number of challenges in-game, but once it has been collected it can be used to throw at opponents and will deal 90 damage per hit – making it a potentially devastating weapon as well. 

It would be very easy to say that they don’t exist in Fortnite, just because you haven’t seen one yourself, but a few players have been posting about their experience catching the fish and yes, it is available to find in Chapter 2. They’re just pretty rare. 

Many players have been asking Reddit user OldManHerman questions, after they posted about finding one on October 20, but their answers might not be too helpful for those looking for tips on how to pick one out of the water. 

In fact, they found their first golden fish near Misty Meadows and it was laying on the ground. 

I didn’t think the golden fish even existed but lo and behold from r/FortNiteBR

The user also revealed that they didn’t check off any challenges by finding it in this way, which would suggest that picking up somebody else’s catch is not the way to go. Therefore, it’s very likely that you will catch it right from the water – as you can do with any other fish in Fortnite. 

If you would like some other pointers on the best ways to go about fishing, check out our complete guide which should help you improve and will give you the best chance of being prepared for any sudden appearance of the Mythic Goldfish! 

If you spot it and don’t know what to do, you’re going to be kicking yourself. These are very rare.

Excitement for Fortnite’s Season 4 Nexus War finale event, which will introduce Marvel villain Galactus, is at fever pitch. From start times to how to watch live, here’s everything you need to know.

Love them or hate them, Fortnite’s crossovers with Marvel have become big business for Epic Games. Season 4 has introduced a number of skins and weapons for our favorite superheroes and villains, and it’s set to go out with a bang with the arrival of Galactus.

We don’t know too much about what will happen when the Devourer of Worlds hits the Island, but as his moniker suggests, it’s going to spell trouble; the event has been described as “an interactive Marvel movie” by Epic, and is expected to be one of the biggest events the game has ever seen.

Below, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about the Nexus War finale including start times, how to watch, leaks about another potential Black Hole scenario, and what to expect when Season 5 finally arrives.

When does the Fortnite Galactus event start?

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone. The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4:10 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Fortnite’s Galactus event live streams

If you want to take part in Fortnite’s Nexus War finale event, Epic recommends you log in to the game at least 60 minutes prior to the start time and date listed above, with the Event Playlist expected to go live 30 minutes before the event.

Epic have also advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat) for the best experience. However, if you don’t want to play, and instead just want to watch the event live, you can tune into several of the live streams that we’ve included below for your convenience.

Fortnite Galactus event: What to expect

Unfortunately, we don’t really know what to expect during the event itself, although the prevailing theory is that players will have to fight Galactus. This hasn’t been confirmed and is pure speculation, but with the hype that’s been surrounding the villain’s arrival, it would make sense.

That being said, the playlist for the event apparently states that players will have to “defend the Island to save all Reality!”, which supports that theory that we’ll have to take down Galactus himself.

We’ll just have to wait and see to find out exactly what’s going to happen during the event itself when it goes live at 4:10 PM.

Galactus Fortnite event leaks

2While we may not know exactly what we’ll be doing during the event, as with everything in Fortnite, there’s a ton of leaks surrounding the event itself, giving players SOME idea of what to expect.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

It’s also been heavily rumored that there will be another Black Hole type situation once the Galactus event comes to a close. Back when Chapter 1 ended, the battle royale was stuck behind a black hole loading screen, with nothing for players to do until Chapter 2 began.

The potential return of a blackout was pointed out on November 18 by data miner FNLeaksAndInfo, who tweeted: “Prepare for some more possible downtime after the event similar to the Black Hole event!”

Beyond the event itself, it seems like players may be able to play as Galactus if some leaks are to be believed, although not in the way you’re probably thinking. It turns out there’s actually a standard-sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

On top of that, on November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
