Catch a Weapon Using a Fishing Rod
One of the many changes in Fortnite Chapter 2 is the addition of fishing. That's right, you can now pick up a fishing rod and go fishing for all kinds of hidden treasures. For this specific New World challenge, you'll need to catch a weapon using a fishing rod.
The hardest part of this challenge is going to be finding a fishing rod, as fishing itself is pretty simple. Typically, you'll be able to find a fishing rod on a dock close to water. However, they can also be found as floor loot.
Once you have a fishing rod, you'll need to find a fishing hole to complete this New World challenge. Fish are located in the white circular areas within ponds, lakes, and streams. You can see what we are talking about in the image above. Thankfully there are a lot of them and they're hard to miss.
You'll want to cast your rod into the the water using the same button/trigger you would to shoot, using the blue line that appears on screen to aim. Once you feel a tug, press the button/trigger again, and you'll reel in your catch. You may have to try a few times to catch a weapon, but it shouldn't take long.
