Fishing has become the new meta in this week of Fortnite

Fans of this game are in for a lot of enjoyment, as Epic Games promises to roll out wild weeks. In the previous week, the studio added a range of fire weapons, which essentially served as fire week. It seems like this week shall be based on the relaxing activity of fishing that people love to do in actual life and in the game.

Only in Fortnite can this relaxing hobby produce game-changing results, which go on to dictate the meta. This event will last for a week, coming to a close on May 20. Gamers can stand a chance of finding extremely rare fishes, which can offer insane abilities.

” Starting now for one full week, fish (as well as submerged weapons) are hooked on the thrill of being caught. In this Fish Fiesta, fishing spots will persist longer AND harbor rare fish more often. Weapons found from fishing spots will only be of the Rare rarity or above. To boot, Pro Fishing Rods have become more plentiful.”
