Fortnite Chapter 2 — Season 5 features the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda

Epic Games revealed details on Fortnite’s next season, which features the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda. The bounty hunter-themed Chapter 2 — Season 5 will add new characters, weapons, and locations to the battle royale game.

A trailer for this season’s battle pass reveals the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda alongside a batch of new characters. The trailer shows him sniping with his signature Amban rifle and using his jetpack to jump between buildings. It’s not clear how Baby Yoda fits in during gameplay, but images on the battle pass page tease that he may be featured as a backpack for the Mandalorian.

The season, referred to as Zero Point, revolves around hunters from different realities coming together to stop “the loop,” a cataclysmic event that threatens the game’s island. The narrative-focused season stars a character named Agent Jones, who will recruit more hunters as the season progresses. The battle pass page shows off a few of the new hunters including Mancake, a western-themed stack of pancakes.

In addition to the Amban rifle, the new season brings some notable new weapons to the game. The Night Hawk will allow players to track their targets and the Dragon’s Breath shotgun is described as “firey.” The game’s new map features jungles, an ancient arena, and a crystalline desert.

The new season adds a revamped quest system based on the bounty hunter motif. Players can take on bounties from the various hunters and complete them to receive bars, a new currency for the season. They can be found in hidden stashes and are rewarded for killing players as well. Bars can be used to buy “exotic weapons, upgrades, intel, services, and more.”

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Chapter 2 — Season 4 just wrapped up with a massive event in which players came together to defeat Galactus. The new season launches today alongside the game’s new Fortnite Crew subscription service.

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.
