Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4: How To Catch The Midas Flopper And Legendary Fish

Flop it!

Midas is back! But in an aquatic form...

This mysterious fish was added to the game files back at the start of Chapter 2 Season 4.

Now after the most recent v14.20 update, it's finally here and available for all players to grab.

So how do you get it? Here's our guide to getting the Midas Flopper and other Legendary Fish.

How Rare Is The Midas Flopper?

The Midas Flopper has a 1% catch rate!

It's extremely rare, but not nearly as rare as the Mythic Goldish, which boasts a catch rate of 0.001%.

What Does The Midas Flopper Do?

The Midas Flopper, when consumed, turns a player's loot into Legendary items (gold variants).

Of course, this only applies to loot that has a gold variant; this means the Suppressed SMGs can not get an upgrade.

It also gifts the player a gold Scar if they didn't already have an AR.

How To Catch The Midas Flopper

The Midas Flopper can only be found in one location: The Authority.

This is appropriate as this is where we first met Midas.

You'll also need to use a Pro Fishing Rod, it doesn't look like a Harpoon Gun or regular fishing rod will help your cause.

You can upgrade the fishing rod at The Authority itself.

This is the same concept for Legendary fish such as the Vendetta fish.
