There are a couple of steps you need to take before being able to catch a Legendary fish, so if you’re stumped, this guide will surely come in handy for you. Below, we’ll show you how to get a Pro fishing rod needed for the catch, how to catch the right type of fish, and we’ll even throw in some tips and strategies to make it go more smoothly for you.

How to get a Pro fishing rod

The first thing you need to do to catch a Legendary fish is to get your hands on a Pro fishing rod. These rods do spawn throughout the world, but they’re rare. We’ve had luck finding Pro fishing rods in Craggy Cliffs, so you should drop there as soon as the match starts to begin your hunt. To find a Pro fishing rod, you’ll want to look inside the barrels found throughout this area and with some luck, you might find one that has what you’re looking for. The barrels will always spawn regular fishing rods and are all located inside the buildings at Craggy Cliffs.

If you’re unlucky, you won’t come across a Pro fishing rod, but that isn’t as bad as it seems. You can upgrade a regular fishing rod to the Pro version at the upgrade station on the north side of Craggy Cliffs. As you search the buildings for the Pro fishing rod, make sure you’re smashing all the walls and floors to gather materials, just in case you do have to use the upgrade station, instead. You’ll need 100 each of wood, stone, and metal in order to upgrade your fishing rod.

However you get your hands on the Pro fishing rod, run over to the beach to the north to begin fishing.

Now that you know how to get your hands on the Pro fishing rod, you’ll be ready to start fishing! You can fish at many locations around the map, but the closest is the beach at Craggy Cliffs (assuming that’s where you landed). Stand right by the water and cast your rod into the ocean, making sure it lands within the groups of fish that can be found swimming nearby. With your rod in the water, wait for the sound of a splash (and controller vibration) before reeling your line back in.

Keep in mind, the Legendary fish have a low drop rate and can take a while to appear. Unfortunately, there isn’t anything you can do to increase the spawn rate, so keep at it until you finally catch one. Here’s a video of us making the catch, with very little time to spare before the gas engulfed us.

You’ll know you’ve got the right fish if it has an orange label with five stars — indicating that it is, in fact, Legendary. We caught a Thermal Fish, which has some interesting side effects when consumed. The last step after you catch the fish is to consume it, so pick it up and chow down! Once you do, you’ll complete the challenge and gain 25,000 XP.

Keep in mind, you can attempt this at other locations — we just prefer Craggy Cliffs because it has everything you need to complete the challenge in one condensed area. As you play regularly, you might come across a Pro fishing rod and if you do, consider stopping by the water to go for the challenge. Otherwise, you’ll want to attempt it as we described above.

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.

How to give specialist a command in Fortnite
Character interacting with NPC in Fortnite.

As part of Fortnite's Spring Breakout Daily Quests, players are tasked with giving a hired specialist character a command. Of course, the game doesn't specify how to do this exactly, leading to some confusion amongst the community. Thankfully, we've got everything you need to know about completing this new quest with ease in Fortnite.
How to hire a specialist

Specialist Characters are specific NPCs all around the map. If you pull up the quest itself, you'll actually see a map of all the Specialist Characters. Keep in mind that not all NPCs fall into this category, so be sure to look at the map. We like the one to the very north of Breakwater Bay as it's usually out of the way. Once you find them, you'll need to pay 200 Gold Bars to hire them. If you don't have the funds, be sure to play more and complete bounties as needed.
How to give a character a command
After you've hired the Specialist Character, they'll be on your side for the duration of the match. If you look at the top left side of the screen, you'll see an icon that represents the Follower Communications wheel. Press and hold left on the D-pad on console or the middle mouse button on PC to get this menu to appear. Once it does, you can pick from a list of commands such as wait or follow. To complete the quest, you simply need to issue one command and after the NPC does what you ask, you'll earn credit for completing it.

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.
