Fortnite XP Xtravaganza Week 2: Catch Fish Guide

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is in full swing with about 4 weeks left before the season ends.

Season 4 began on August 27th and was originally due to end on November 30th, but now has been delayed until December 3rd.

To keep players occupied now that the 10 weeks of challenges are out, Epic Games have released the XP Xtravaganza challenges.

XP Xtravaganza Challenges Week 2

In previous seasons Epic Games have released Overtime Challenges to keep players occupied and still playing the game while they wait for the next season.

The XP Xtravaganza challenges have been released and the first set are labelled as week 1, meaning we will likely see new ones added every week for the next 3-4 weeks before the end of Chapter 2 Season 4.

All of the challenges are team challenges, meaning that if any members of your party do something that works towards it then it will count for you too.

Additionally, all but one are in stages, meaning once you complete a challenge another part will appear.

Overall this gives players a total of 13 challenges to complete.

The challenges are:

Deal damage with Shotguns (20,000 XP each stage)

  • Stage 1/3 Deal 1,000 damage
  • Stage 2/3 Deal 2,500 damage 
  • Stage 3/3 Deal 5,000 damage

Eliminate 7 Opponents (20,000 XP each stage)

  • Stage 1/3: With Common Weapons
  • Stage 2/3: With Rare Weapons
  • Stage 3/3: With Epic Weapons

Damage opponents using Choppa’s blades (20,000 XP each stage)

  • Stage 1/3: Deal 50 damage
  • Stage 2/3: Deal 150 damage
  • Stage 3/3: Deal 250 damage

Catch fish (20,000 XP each stage)

  • Stage 1/3: 10 times
  • Stage 2/3: 10 times with a Pro Fishing Rod
  • Stage 3/3: 10 times with Explosives

Shoot a gas can thrown by a teammate before it hits the ground (50,000 XP)

That means that the upcoming challenges offer 290,000 XP!

Catch Fish

Chapter 2 saw the introduction of fishing in the world of Fortnite.

Players can use Fishing Rods or Harpoon Guns to catch fish, which can be used for various things from gaining health/shield to various effects such as increased speed and thermal vision.

GONE FISHING: Fishing can be used to find new weapons or fish to regain health.

To complete the challenges players need to fish 10 times with a regular Fishing Rod, then 10 with the new Pro Fishing Rod, and finally with explosives.

You can use things such as Grenades to destroy fishing spot and gain the fish from them.

Unfortunately the Harpoon Gun doesn't work in this challenge, a Fishing Rod is needed.

Each Stage is worth 20,000XP so completing this will give a total of 60,000 XP.
