Fortnite mythic goldfish: What is it and how to get one

There's a few tasks in the game now that require you to obtain a Fortnite mythic goldfish, which is a brand new item added for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1. Thanks to the lack of Fortnite patch notes, there's plenty of changes in this new season of Fortnite which people are still discovering, and the Fortnite mythic goldfish is a mystery right now to anyone trying to get the Fortnite achievements done early. Here's everything you need to know about the Fortnite mythic goldfish including how to get one and what it does.

There's three achievements which require the use of a Fortnite mythic goldfish:

  • No one will believe you caught this – Caught a Mythic Goldfish (1)
  • Sleep with the Fishes – Eliminated by a Mythic Goldfish (1)
  • Trophy Hunter – Eliminated an opponent with a Mythic Goldfish (1)

However, nobody has been able to complete them yet, and for good reason. The Fortnite mythic goldfish is not in the game yet.

Fishing is a brand new mechanic and so far, you can catch a Small Fry (heals 25 health up to a maximum of 75), a Flopper (heals 50 health), and a Slurpfish (heals 50 health or shield). It's also possible to fish out weapons and rusty cans, which deal 20 damage when thrown.

As you can see in the tweet above, popular Fortnite leaker @HYPEX has found the file for the mythic goldfish, which isn't actually in the game yet. As far as I can tell anyway, I've spent a long time fishing and haven't managed to find one whatsoever, nor can I find any reports of other people finding the Fortnite mythic goldfish yet.

Of course, with the mythic rarity, it's going to be a rare item to find anyway, so completing these achievements is going to be tough when it is added to the game. Until then however, sit patient and try not to let the incomplete achievements bother you!
