Fortnite Cuddle fish Guide: Where To Find Cuddle Fish And How To Use Them: Fortnite Season 6 introduces a lot of new things: a new map, a new battle pass, a new crafting system, and more. But the fish… the fish are forever. Fishing hasn’t gone anywhere this season, so you can still get your hands on a rod and head out for Slurpfish in abundance.
A new type of fish has been added as of the launch of Season 6, giving players one more tool to dominate in Battle Royale. The “Cuddle Fish” is modeled after the squid-like cuttlefish found in real-world waters, and can be used as a trap for other players or as a more direct threat.
We explain everything below.
What are Fortnite Cuddle Fish?
Cuddle Fish are octopus-like fish, inspired by the real world “squid.” They come in various colors, but they all perform the same two functions.
If you throw a Cuddle Fish and it falls to the ground, it acts as a proximity mine that can damage unsuspecting enemy players. If you throw it at an enemy and hit them, it acts like a sticky grenade. The Cuddle Fish will hug the enemy (awww) and then explode in a burst of sticky ink (ahhh). You can also blow them up manually by shooting them.
Cuddle Fish does 35 damage per explosion, which isn’t much, so it sounds like they’ll be a modest item to grab early game or a genuine late game threat in large enough numbers.
Where to find Cuddle Fish
Cuddle Fish can be found anywhere normal fish can be found. Then the lakes, the rivers or the ocean will work. Just grab a fishing rod and look for the telltale circle of water with fish leaping into the air and you’ll be good to go.
Here are all the Cuddle Fish colors you can find:
- Cuddle Fish – Jelly Cuddle Fish (only found in Slurpy Swamp)
- Orange Cuddle Fish
- Green Cuddle Fish
- Red Cuddle Fish
