Players can fish for dropped loot in Fortnite

The fishing rod, introduced in Fortnite Chapter Two, has a new feature that allows players to reel in loot that doesn’t have to come from the water. 

A Reddit user recently discovered that dropped items can be brought to the player by using the fishing rod. Players have to simply stand near the loot, aim toward the dropped items, and reel the items in. The dropped loot will land at the player’s feet. 

The Reddit user was able to hook and reel in a med kit, submachine gun, and pump shotgun that were just laying in some grass.
