Fortnite season 3 week 5 challenges: How to catch fish at Craggy Cliffs

Season 3 week 5 challenges are live in Fortnite, and one of them requires you to catch five fish at a location called Craggy Cliffs. How exactly do you go about doing that? Not to worry — in this guide, we’ll show you how to find Craggy Cliffs, where to grab a fishing pole, and — most importantly — how to catch fish.

Finding Craggy Cliffs

Arguably the hardest part of completing this challenge is locating Craggy Cliffs. This area is found in the top portion of the map, to the north of Frenzy Farm. Craggy Cliffs is pretty much surrounded by water, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a spot to fish. Before you can do that, you’ll need to grab a pole. Luckily, there are lots of them nearby. As you skydive to your destination, we recommend you position yourself to land on the roof of Cap’n Carp, just south of the Sticks building.

After you land, head inside Cap’n Carp, and you’ll find barrels with fishing poles in them. You can find poles in many other spots in Craggy Cliffs, too. Wherever you find one, grab a pole and equip it.

Catching a fish

Now it’s time to start catching some fish. To do so, pull whichever trigger you use to fire your gun (R2 for PlayStation 4, RT for Xbox One, and RZ for Nintendo Switch), and you’ll cast your line into the water. We recommend standing on the rooftop of a nearby building. If you see fish in the water, cast in their direction for a higher chance of getting a bite. You’ll feel your controller rumble when you’ve got something, so use the trigger again to reel it in. A lot of times, the item you get won’t be a fish at all, so keep at it until you’ve caught five.

Look out for nearby sharks that will attack you and destroy whatever building you’re standing on. If you see one coming toward you, it’s best to find a new spot, because they can halt your progress by trying to bite you. You could also accidentally latch on to one. If you do, you can use the shark to lead you around as you water ski throughout the area. This is a comical feature (and you get XP for doing so), but it won’t help you catch fish.

It might sound obvious, but you only get credit for this challenge by catching fish in Craggy Cliffs. If you go to a different location, you can catch fish all day (or until the storm gets you), but you won’t make progress in this challenge.

Reward for catching fish

After catching your fifth fish,  you’ll complete the challenge and be rewarded with 35,000 XP — not bad for minimal effort. This will help you make progress toward upgrading your Battle Pass and hopefully net you some goodies in the end.

How to launch fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite
Launching fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite.

The week 2 Fortnite Coachella quests are live now, and while a lot of them are straightforward, one seems to have caused some confusion for many players. The quest is for launching fireworks at Coachella Island, and as expected, the game doesn't necessarily specify how to complete the objective. In this guide, we'll show you how to launch fireworks at Coachella in Fortnite.
Visit Coachella Island

The first step is to actually make your way to Coachella Island. You cannot complete this quest during a normal match and instead must head into a Creator Made Island. To do so, you'll need to head to Island Code from the game mode menu and utilize the code 5449-4207-1280. Then, launch into a match on Coachella Island.

How to damage opponents with the Lock On Pistol in Fortnite
The Lock On Pistol in Fortnite.

As part of a weekly challenge in Fortnite, players are tasked with dealing 200 damage with the Lock On Pistol. This challenge has caused some confusion, as acquiring the weapon isn't as consistent as players might have hoped. In this guide, we'll show you how to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol and how to deal 200 damage with it in Fortnite.
How to find the Lock On Pistol

First, you need to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol. Currently, the only known ways of finding one are by opening chests or collecting them from Supply Drops. The weapon isn't available from NPCs or any method just yet. This means you'll want to head to a high-traffic area like Mega City to find a bunch of chests. Keep in mind that Mega City will be busy, but there are plenty of chests available. If you want to play it safe, you can visit a different point of interest (POI). Keep opening chests until you get your hands on the Lock On Pistol.

How to survive storm phases carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite
Character jumping while holding Epic weapon in Fortnite.

A new Fortnite challenge for surviving storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon has caused some confusion, as the quest's wording isn't exactly clear. Thankfully, the challenge is much easier than it seems, and once you know what to do, you can get through it relatively quickly. Here's how to survive storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite.
What is an Epic weapon?
Fortnite uses a rarity system with its weapons, which are denoted by colors. Purple weapons are Epic, but keep in mind you can utilize any weapon of higher rarity to complete this quest. As long as the weapon is at least Epic, you'll earn credit for surviving storm phases.
How to get an Epic weapon

There are several ways to get Epic weapons. One way is to simply find one from chests or as floor loot, but this isn't as reliable. You can also purchase Epic weapons from NPCs around the map. Nearly all main hubs have an NPC who sells weapons, so be sure to talk with them if you have the funds. Using an Upgrade Station is another solid option for collecting an Epic weapon, though it's expensive. Another option is to defeat the Highcard Boss found at Brutal Bastion, Shattered Slabs, and Mega City. Upon defeat, the Highcard Boss drops a Mythic Havoc Suppressed Rifle.
