Catch Fish

In Chapter 2 the fishing mechanic was introduced, allowing players to fish for weapons as well as Fish which can grant health and shield, as well as various other abilities such as being able to Rift or run faster.

Dotted around the map in most bodies of water are Fishing Holes, these randomly generate in a map and are spots that players can fish in.

GONE FISHING: Players need to catch 7 fish to complete the challenge.

To complete this challenge players need to catch a total of 7 Fish.


These can be done in Fishing Holes, but also just in any water.

Sometimes players can fish out Small Fries and other Fish outside of Fishing Holes, but it generally takes longer and isn't a guarantee, so it is probably easier to just use Fishing Holes, and there are plenty of them in a match so it shouldn't take too long to complete.
