There are a ton of items on offer in the new shop, including blueprints of the new Kayak vessel and its corresponding Paddle weapon:

  • Diving Equipment
  • Bait
  • Fishing Rods
  • Boats
  • Kayak Blueprint

Fish have also been added to all appropriate locations, so players can strike out to the closest lake, river, or swamp to test their luck with the new critters.

Deadly Catch also packs in a ton of fixes to the existing boating mechanics, players can no longer flip boats by hitting them with throwable objects and water won’t clip through the sides anymore either.

Hand in hand with those changes, there were some improvements made to swimming as well, making it more clear when your player is completely submerged underwater.
