How to catch Fortnite Season 4’s Vendetta Flopper fish

Rare species of fish have been swimming around since Fortnite Season 4 got underway and there’s none more hard to find than a Vendetta Flopper. Here, we will walk you through how to catch one in-game and what it does. 

Just like the Mythic Goldfish and Midas Flopper, this one is extremely difficult to add to your inventory. Secure it, though, and it could be the difference between a win and a loss. That’s for sure.

The Mythic Goldfish does tremendous damage to opponents and the Midas Flopper, of equal rarity, makes all of your inventory Legendary. Gold guns are the most prized assets in many people’s minds so the attraction there is obvious, but not many will have added the Vendetta to their collection just yet.

So, where can you actually find one, and what do they do? Let’s run through the details.

Casting near the fish in Fortnite will land you a fish, but not always will you find something as rare as the Vendetta Flopper.

How to get a Vendetta Flopper in Fortnite

The Vendetta Flopper, much like every other rare fish added in the v14.00 update, requires a Pro Fishing Rod to obtain it.

This takes a few steps, but is easy enough to grab in-game. All you have to do is follow the instructions below, really.

  1. Jump into Fortnite and find a normal fishing rod.
  2. Get 100 of each material for its upgrade.
  3. Find an Upgrade Bench, which are scattered across the map.
  4. Craft a Pro Fishing Rod.
  5. Search for the Vendetta Flopper!

Where to find Vendetta Flopper: Location

As of September 2020, the Vendetta Flopper has only been found (supposedly) by a handful of players. Even in those cases, proof of a catch is pretty much impossible to find online in the way of videos or screenshots.

This would lead us to believe that it’s either an ultra-rare thing to find, much like the Mythic Goldfish, or that its spawn rate will be increased to up encounters in a future Fortnite patch.

Once we have more details, or evidence that it can be found in a specific area of the battle royale island, we will update this guide accordingly.

Fortnite Season 4 Vendetta Flopper clues

In the absence of sightings, YouTuber Ali-A has predicted that the Vendetta Flopper will actually take pride of place in Slot 1 of the Season 4 fish list. He usually finds a lot of secrets before everybody else, but even he has been left stumped by this addition.

As seen in the video above, there’s no fish in that vacant position, which means it could yet be added in an online update.

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.


Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
