How to Ride a Shark in Fortnite is an unexpected question many players are beginning to ask. Sharks were added into Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3, which was released June 17 following Monday's live-event, The Device.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 has a water theme, and the new Battle Pass accompanies that. Fish were introduced in Chapter 2, and bored fishermen can now look out for sharks. Sharks can be rode and looted but cannot be fished out of the water.

Here is how to ride a shark in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3:

How to Ride a Shark in Fortnite

Fortnite players will be able to ride sharks in Season 3, a new method to travel across waters.

Players will need to find:

  • Fishing rod
  • Shark
  • Once players have found both, they will need to throw a line at or nearby the shark. The shark will go for the line and bite. Once the shark is hooked, the player is then pulled forward and skis are equipped.

    The player is now riding the shark and would have full control of the shark. Players will need to learn how to control the shark just like a vehicle. They can also boost and jump in any direction. Players will also have the ability to shoot riding the shark.

    Sharks, like boats, can also be rode on land but won't work as well.

    Players can also loot sharks but killing them. Sharks have a large amount of HP and so will take a lot of bullets before dying. After dying, loot will spawn like when player's are killed.

    Fortnite also teased cars in the trailers for Season 3 but are yet to be found in game. Theorists believe that it will be introduced later in the season as the water level drops. Players will have to wait to see how the season progresses and when they will be in-game.
