This week, "Fortnite" is planning on giving the battle royale genre a whole new meaning by making players pick up fishing rods instead of weapons because Epic Games is hosting a massive in-game fishing tournament.

During the event, the previously teased Fishstick-like outfit called the "Triggerfish" will also be coming to the item shop on Friday, November 22 at 7 PM ET, meanwhile, the event itself with get-underway at 8 am ET Today and will last until 8 pm ET on Sunday, November 24.

Fishing Frenzy Event Format

On November 21, the official "Fortnite" social media handles announced the commencement of the event.

All the rules are listed below:

  • Only the fish that are caught using Fishing Rod will count.
  • Must be at least 13 years of age.
  • Only one prize per player will be awarded.
  • Each server region will have one winner per category. “Getting Hooked on Fishing” will have unlimited winners.

"Fortnite" is slowing down its "fast-action" pace with this fishing contest and since there is a lot of luck involved while fishing in-game, we can expect a lot of unknown faces to win the event.
