Fortnite season 4 week 10 challenge guide: How to catch fish at Heart Lake

It’s a new week, meaning there is a new batch of weekly challenges to cross off your list in Fortnite. As part of season 4 week 10, one challenge requires you to catch seven fish at a place called Heart Lake. It’s unmarked on the map, so you’ll probably need to be pointed in the right direction.

Fortunately, we’ve got all the details on where to find Heart Lake and how to catch fish there. Here’s how to catch seven fish at Heart Lake in Fortnite.

Where to find Heart Lake

Arguably the most difficult part about this challenge is finding Heart Lake and getting set up to fish. This spot is found just north of Stark Industries, within the large circle of this area. The lake … sort of looks like a heart. If you squint and step back 10 feet or so. Nonetheless, boot up the match of your choice (squad modes are best so your team can watch your back) and land at the small dock on the north side of the lake where you’ll find a barrel of fishing lines. You’ll now be ready to start fishing.

How to catch fish at Heart Lake

To start fishing, you need to grab a fishing pole. You’ll find some in a barrel on the dock to the north of Heart Lake. There are a few other barrels in this area, so run around the shore and see what you can find. After you’ve grabbed your pole, toss your line with the right trigger where you see a school of fish to guarantee a catch. Wait for the controller to vibrate and then press the trigger again to reel it in.

Keep doing this until all the fish in the school are gone. Try to find another school of fish, but if you can’t, you’ll need to just throw your line in the water and hope for a bite. You’ll almost always get something, but it’s not guaranteed to be a fish if you don’t toss your line at a school. Either way, you should be close after catching all the fish from a school, so keep trying, while being cognizant of the storm and other players who might also be going for the challenge. Here’s a video of us catching fish at Heart Lake.

Sometimes you’ll get guns or useless items like cans, but keep at it and you’ll catch seven fish in just a few minutes. If you get eliminated before you can grab seven, you can try again in another match. As with most weekly challenges in Fortnite, this one is cumulative, meaning you don’t need to catch all seven in a single game. After your seventh catch, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and be rewarded with 25,000 XP.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.

Now that Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 2 has been out for a little while, we've got a better sense of the game's weapon meta. There are some clear winners that carry over from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, but there are other top-tier weapons that might surprise you in battle royale.

These are the best Warzone 2.0 weapons for Season 2, categorized by weapon type. Keep in mind, some categories will be skipped, as they don't have any viable -- let alone meta -- options at the moment.
