The third Fortnite Let Them Know Challenge is live. Today is Day 3 and much like the previous two days, players will have to undertake a simple task to earn points and progress further along this seven-day challenge-marathon. That said, today's task (November 23, 2022) is rather straightforward.

Unlike the previous two challenges, which tested players' mettle in combat, this one is more relaxing. To complete Day 3's task, all players have to do is earn points by fishing.

A step-by-step guide on how to catch fish for Fortnite Let Them Know Challenge (Day Three)

1) Land on the landmark called Launchpad

To make this Fortnite Let Them Know Challenge as easy as possible, the first step is to land on a landmark called Launchpad. For players who have been here since the start of Chapter 3, finding it will not be a problem. The location is iconic as The Seven used it to store and launch recon rockets.

That said, for those having difficulty finding it, an easy way to locate this landmass is by searching the easternmost part of the main island. Launchpad is the largest individual island in the archipelago just off the eastern coast of the mainland.

For more visual reference, it's the island above which The Driftwood is anchored. A floating platform can also be seen above the island. This should make spotting it easy. Nevertheless, it's recommended to mark the location on the map before jumping off the Battle Bus to save time looking for it and avoid confusion.


2) Secure the island

Once on the ground, before starting the Fortnite Let Them Know Challenge, it's best to ensure that the area is clear of opponents. Since fishing takes some time and will need a bit of attention, being shot at will delay the process considerably.

Keeping this in mind, players should loot The Driftwood for better weapons/items and lockdown the area as soon as possible. If other opponents are landing, they should be dealt with swiftly to stop them from gearing up and fighting back.

Alternatively, if players do not want to engage in combat, they should wait for a match in which the Battle Bus' route starts from the western edge of the island. This way, by the time it reaches Launchpad, the odds of opponents jumping off so late will be minimal.


3) look for fishing rods and/or harpoon guns and start fishing

Once the area is free of threats and players have enough supplies/loot, they can start the Fortnite Let Them Know Challenge. The first thing to do is search fishing barrels for fishing rods and/or harpoon guns. Although the latter is harder to find, it'll allow players to complete the challenge sooner.

Nevertheless, if fortune does not favor players, they will have to make do with fishing rods. Since the challenge does not specify any particular fish, players can catch anything they like to progress with the challenge. With numerous fishing holes around this one landmark, it shouldn't take long to complete the task at hand.
