The new season is out, and the most surprising addition to the game is the fishing activity. You’ve heard it right; Season 21 has added a fishing mechanic to our favorite looter shooter. Thus allowing us to kick back and relax rather than be with the thrill of the relatively big fish taking center stage this season. So, here is everything you need to know about fishing in Destiny 2, Season of the Deep.
Although it isn’t valid for all, it’s one of the rare additions to the game till now, allowing the players to take a break from hunting for the best PvP and PvE weapons and instead relax.
How to fish in Destiny 2 Season of the Deep
First, you must press the interact button at any fishing spot with acquired bait to fish in the game. Once you get the prompt to catch the fish, again press the interact button. Doing so will reel in the fish to you. In order to get a “Perfect Catch,” pay close attention to the screen. As soon as the Perfect Catch prompt pops up on your screen, press your Interact button immediately. If you don’t, then your catch will just be a normal catch, and drops rates of rare fishes in normal catches are extremely low. You will most probably get a Green Fish every time. To catch a Purple Fish or an Exotic Fish, make sure that you get a Perfect Catch, and that your Focused Fishing bar is close to full.
To unlock fishing, you must complete the quest – Gone Fishin’. You get awarded this when you complete the first six steps of the quest ‘Into the Depths’ in the game. This is the game’s seasonal story quest.
Before you fish, do make sure that you check the Fishing Tackle from your inventory. This will help you determine what location/area has an ‘increased activity’ buff. This effect helps increase your probability of getting a higher quality fish, like Exotic or Legendary fish.
All Fishing Location – Where to fish in Destiny 2?
There are three fishing locations in the game, they are:
- Nessus – The Cistern
- Throne World – Miasma
- EDZ – Outskirts
Your map will be marked with the blue seasonal activity icon indicating where you can go fishing. However, note that if any public event is active in these areas, it will cause the spot to despawn until the event is over temporarily. So, if you have been struggling to find a spot to fish, this could be a probable reason.
How to get Bait in Season 21 Destiny 2?
I am mainly a crucible player, so I get 7-8 Bait almost every game, and that is where I farm mine. You can farm Bait in other places too. To get the bait in the game, you will have to do these:
- Complete salvage
- Deep dive
- Playlist activities
- Public events
- Collect the destination materials
You can inspect the Fishing Tackle in your inventory to find out how much bait you currently have. It has a max storage capacity of 500 bait.
Probably the best bait farm in the game includes patrols in a rotation around a zone and completing the Heroic public events—for example, the EDZ.
You can do this very easily and swiftly in zones with many public events like the EDZ. Move from one public event to another (ensuring that you have made it a heroic difficulty) while collecting destination materials and completing patrols. Using this technique, you will quickly reach the max storage capacity (500 baits) in your Fishing Tackle. You can then use these to catch the Exotic and Legendary fish at the abovementioned fishing spots.
That pretty much sums up all there is to know about how to do fishing in Destiny 2 Season 21.
