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.

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.

How to return your Fortnite NFL skin without using a refund token

After a recent update introducing a change to Fortnite’s NFL skins, Epic Games is giving players the chance to return them for a limited time, and we have all the info on how to do so.

Fortnite’s v14.30 update brought a change to the game’s NFL skins, removing the name and logo for the team formerly known as the Washington Redskins. 


After years of public backlash, the team removed their nickname and are now officially called the “Washington Football Team” while they work on getting a new trademark.

In-game, the team has been removed from the available options in their line of NFL skins. Now, when you visit the customization tab, Washington will be the last option with no logo. With this change, Epic is allowing players to return their purchase for a limited time – without using a refund token.

Washington’s NFL Fortnite skin will be this instead.

But this exchange isn’t as straightforward as you might think, and has led to some confusion amongst players trying to figure out how to do it.

Players who still have refund tokens should be able to navigate to the proper tab by going to Settings > Profile (far right) > Lifetime Return Requests > Submit a Request. There, you should see the NFL outfit listed as one of the items eligible for returns.

But, if you’ve already used all of your refund tokens, the “Submit a Request” Button won’t’ be active. Another problem you may run into is that your game didn’t update right away, making the NFL skin not show up as a return option – until it does update at least.


The good is that a fix for this is very simple: all you need to do is play a game or enter and leave Creative Mode. After that, you’ll see the prompt shown below and will be able to navigate to the Settings tab and issue a refund.

This prompt should let you return your NFL skin even with no tokens.

While the NFL skins were a fun addition to Fortnite for a lot of gamers, some players have found that they don’t use these skins as much as they did when they first came out. Trading one of these in will net you 1,500 V-Bucks as well, which could almost seem like an extra payday if you bought the skin a year or two ago.

Now that you’ve got an extra 1,500 V-Bucks burning a hole in your pocket, you can save them for later, or use them for one of the new skins that were leaked in the v14.30 update.
