How to trap enemies with Cuddle Fish in Fortnite Season 6

The first step to wiping opponents out with one of this season's best hidden features is to go fishing. Taking the time to fish is the only way to find these Cuddle Fish, among others, in Fortnite Season 6 so far.

Pro Fortnite players hint that players should attempt to catch at least six Cuddle Fish as utilizing this many makes it possible to eliminate a player with one trap.

As far as where players can expect to find Cuddle Fish, these explosive fish spawn throughout the Fortnite Season 6 map. While there are different variants of the Cuddle Fish, they all function in the same way and deal 35 points of damage to those who stand too close to them.

Fortnite Season 6 players may have to spend a significant amount of time fishing in order to find multiple Cuddle Fish. Once loopers have collected around six Cuddle Fish, they can experiment with a few methods illustrated by Lachlan.

Fortnite pro Lachlan first attempted to bait opponents to pick up a weapon with the Cuddle Fish planted behind it.

Unfortunately, as seen in Lachlan's video, some players may already be aware of the Cuddle Fish's ability. Knowledgeable opponents may be weary of approaching this kind of setup or they will attempt to shoot the fish from a distance.

In order to bait enemy loopers into elimination by Cuddle Fish, players may have to get more creative in the methods they use to hide these explosive fish.

Lachlan's successful method involved staging a player's elimination by dropping loot on top of Cuddle Fish. A confident opponent approached the scattered loot thinking they were lucky enough to find valuable weapons.

Instead they found Cuddle Fish waiting to jump and latch on before self-exlpoding, thus leading to the elimination of the battle royale player.

Fortnite Season 6 players may face some challenges, such as accidental self-eliminations, while experimenting with this new method. However, the rewards are well worth it.

Fortnite Season 6 has proven itself to be full of exciting new features, weapons, and skins. This new Season features several new aspects that may end up changing how many Fortnite players engage with the game. As the Season advances and more updates are released, the battle royale possibilities for these new Cuddle Fish become endless.
