Fortnite challenge guide: Catch different kinds of fish to find a Valentine’s date for Fishstick

This week’s new Fortnite challenges are live, and they focus on a Valentine’s Day theme. Many of the challenges you’ll likely have issues with are cryptic and require you to visit locations to grab hidden items for the game’s various NPCs. We’ll be covering all the new challenges for the week, but the first one sends you on a quest to catch various types of fish to find a “Hearts Wild” date for a character named Fishstick.

It’ll all make sense as you complete more challenges, but essentially, the first step is to simply catch three different kinds of fish, which we’ll detail below. Since some of the challenge descriptions have a lot of weird terminology and often reference NPCs or places you might not be familiar with, it can be tricky to complete some of them.

The first thing we recommend is to boot up a Team Rumble match, since that game mode allows you to respawn after you die. It’s certainly possible to catch fish in other Battle Royale modes, but if you aren’t the most skilled player, or just want to have an easier time, you’ll want to go for this challenge in Team Rumble.

Either way, head to a location that contains fish and a fishing rod nearby. Typically, fishing rods are found close to bodies of water, so you should aim to grab one before you begin fishing. Any spot with water will do, but we typically like to land in the lesser-explored areas so we don’t run into other players looking to take us out. The water to the west of Lazy Lake is a good spot, as it has plenty of fishing holes, hopefully offering a variety of fish.

A dock nearby has a few different rods, so grab them and throw your line toward the schools of fish with R2 on PlayStation, RT on Xbox, or RZ on Nintendo Switch. Once you cast your line, wait a few seconds and your controller should vibrate, indicating you have a bite. Press the right trigger once more to reel in your catch. At this point, you’ll need to repeat the process two more times — but note that you must catch three different types of fish to complete the challenge. Keep fishing in this area and you’ll eventually earn credit for finishing the challenge, along with 20,000 XP for your troubles.

As part of a recent Fortnite challenge, players are required to find and tame wolves -- a mechanic that has been in the game for a long time. The thing is, finding wolves can be a bit inconsistent, making this quest a bit trickier than you'd expect. The other thing is that -- once you find a wolf -- taming them can also be a chore, so players are likely struggling to complete this quest.

For Fortnite Chapter 4, not only is the map completely revamped but a new type of chest called Oathbound Chests have been introduced. These new chests can give you some of the best loot currently in the game, but only if you know where to find them.
