No, you can’t catch the Midas Flopper in Fortnite yet.

Despite some players saying otherwise, which includes YouTubers showing footage of a fake Midas that has been artificially added in, the Midas fish can’t yet be caught in Fortnite Battle Royale.

As discovered by @HYPEX on Twitter, the Midas Flopper appears to have been added to the game, but it isn’t yet enabled. This means that the files are there, but players can’t actually find the fish.

To catch the Midas Flopper in Fortnite, you will need to go to a fishing spot and use the pro fishing rod.

According to dataminer HYPEX, that’s all it takes to find the Midas Flopper. Of course, you will need to get extremely lucky to catch the rarest fish in the game.

Now that the fish appears to have been added to Fortnite, it’s only a matter of time before developer Epic Games allows players to find and catch it. For some, that will mean fish #40 and a completed collection!
