Of this week Fortnite challenges require you to do some fishing, but not in the traditional way you might expect. For Season 5 Week 6, you will be introduced to a new set of challenges from an NPC named Turk – one of which sends you on a quest to blow up fishing holes at Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands or Flopper Pond. It’s a bit of a pain as finding explosives is usually a matter of luck, but there is a sure way to get your hands on the necessary tools to meet this challenge.
In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about blowing up fishing holes at Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands or Flopper Pond in the easiest possible way. Fortnite.
How to blow up fishing holes
By far the easiest way to complete this challenge is to go to Sharky Shell, which can be found in the northwest part of the map, northeast of Coral Castle. It’s called Sharky Shell for a reason – indicated by a huge shark structure on the west side and a multitude of sharks. What you’ll want to do is land across the street at a dock, where you’ll find a motor boat. Use the explosives from this motor boat to take on the challenge. In total you have to destroy three fishing holes.
Fishholes at Sharky Shell
For the challenge, stay in this area and look for groups of fish indicated by a swirl of white water on the surface. All you have to do is shoot them, but watch out for the sharks in this area. The other thing to note is that you should stick to the west side of this area – as close to Sharky Shell as possible – otherwise it won’t count. We experimented a bit and were able to find a lot of fishing holes that were too far east of Sharky Shell, meaning they didn’t count.
Ideally, you should be relatively close to the shark structure. We were lucky enough to enter the cave itself as it guarantees the fishing holes will count when you blow them up. The other thing to mention is that actually getting your shots to land correctly with the boat is somewhat tricky. That’s because the explosive doesn’t necessarily go where the reticle indicates, especially when aiming down. What you need to do is point farther down than you might expect to make sure you connect to the fishing hole.
Also pay attention to other players. We recommend that you coordinate with your team to make it easier so they can be on your guard while you take on the challenge. During our attempts, we encountered several players at this location. When it gets too much to deal with, you can either visit the other locations – Sweaty Sands or Flopper Pond – or just wait a few days or even weeks before trying again. Once you destroy three fishing holes in any of the listed locations, you will receive credit for completing the challenge along with 20,000 XP.
