Where to catch a Snowy Flopper in Fortnite Operation Snowdown

Frozen fish.

One of the challenges for Operation Snowdown in Fortnite is to catch a Snowy Flopper. This new type of fish was introduced just for the event and is actually the 40th fish in the fishing collection, which has been a mystery until now.

Getting the fish is easy, as you just need to grab a fishing rod and fish anywhere on the island to catch it. The Frosty Flopper seems to have a pretty generous spawn rate as well, so this won’t take you very long to do.

At the moment, we do not know if catching the fish in the Battle Lab will count towards the challenge. It will certainly add the fish to your collection, but we don’t know if this will cause the challenge to complete because we finished it in a Squads game.
