Fishing Frenzy is a new Limited Time Mode in Fortnite. In this mode, there is no ground loot and no loot chests. Instead, you need to fish for all your loot, adding some tense moments to the start of the round.
How to play Fishing Frenzy
To play Fishing Frenzy, log into the game and hit the “Change” button under the Play button on the main screen. Select Fishing Frenzy from the bottom of the list, and then hit play to load into a lobby.
The mode takes place in a small area around Coral Castle, and there are only 20 players. It also seems that fishing loot spawns are greatly increased in this mode. You will spawn in on the Battle Bus and have a fishing pole, your harvesting tool, and a pistol with some ammo to start with.
After that, you need to get to a fishing spot and get yourself some better loot. The Storm will collapse a little faster than it does in normal games, and building and harvesting are both turned on in this LTM. There are also some motorboats on the map, giving you a way to rapidly get around Coral Castle if you need to.
The only loot you will find that is not from a fishing spot will be picking it up from dead players, so make sure you pay close attention to what your opponents drop when you eliminate them.
Like a standard match, the last player standing will win, so make sure you get some solid loot and then start hunting down other players and getting rid of the competition.
