The second week of Fortnite’s Aquaman challenges has arrived and players will need to ride a Loot Shark at Sweaty Sands, using a fishing pole, this time around. Here’s everything you’ll need to complete the Week 2 task.

Fortnite’s long-awaited Season 3 was full of surprises, featuring a flooded map and the introduction of new weapons such as the Charge Shotgun.


However, the new season’s trailer also revealed that yet another Superhero would be joining the action, teasing the classic DC superhero Aquaman as a playable character in Fortnite.

As seen with characters like Deadpool in previous seasons, Aquaman has brought along his own set of weekly challenges that players will need to complete in order to unlock his skin variants.


For the second week, Fortnite fans will have to travel to Sweaty Sands to ride a Loot Shark with a Fishing Pole, a new feature that was introduced in Season 3.

First things first, you will need to find a Fishing Pole, they can be found scattered all over the map however, there are plenty in barrels with these rods around Sweaty Sands as well.

You will need to cast your fishing pole from the Sweaty Sands POI in Fortnite.

Once you get the Fishing Pole, you will need to look for a shark in the water at Sweaty Sands and simply cast your line out in that direction.


While you do not need to hit the shark with the line, it may take a short while for it to approach, so you might want to make sure the area is clear before attempting this challenge.

After a few seconds, the shark should snag the line of your Fishing Pole, whisking you out to sea and rewarding you with a Trident Spray and some bonus XP for completing the Week 2 challenge.

One of the Fortnite’s week 1 challenges is to deal 200 damage to a loot shark and you haven’t done so already you should be able to finish both of these tasks in one go.


Step-by-step guide to riding a Shark at Sweaty Sands

  2. Find a Fishing Pole, and cast it towards the Loot Sharks swimming in the water
  3. Once the Shark snags your line, allow it to pull you out, completing the challenge.

Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.


Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form. 


This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
