Core Keeper is a 2D indie game where you need to explore a cavern full of creatures, relics and resources to unravel the mystery of an ancient core. In this guide, we will tell you how to fish in the game.
Fishing is an important activity in the game as it can yield valuable items as well as fish that you can cook to sustain yourself during your adventures.
The first thing you will need is a fishing rod which you find by exploring the underground in areas such as the Old Mine Shaft.
Here you will need to destroy the wooden crates to gain items such as the fishing rod.
The Wood Fishing rod offers +38 fishing with a durability of 50 since it’s the most basic rod.
Alternatively, you can also craft a fishing rod such as the Tin Fishing Rod which will provide you +74 fishing and a durability of 75 allowing you to catch bigger fish. You can craft it from the Tin Crafting Station under the tools tab requiring you 5 wood and 4 tin bars to craft.These tins can be found in the Clay biome which is the red area on your map.
In order to fish, you will need to find a water body and then equip the fishing rod to cast the line into the water by using the left trigger.Wait for the bob to dip under the water and then press the left trigger again.
In case a fish gets hooked to your rod, a little minigame will pop up on your screen which requires you to reel the fish into the left side of the bar.If the fish manages to get to the right side then it will go away.
You will need to reel in when the fish is in yellow colour and hold the left trigger of your controller.When the fish is flashing red, let go otherwise your rod might break.Keep repeating this process until the fish gets reeled in.
Some fishes can be more difficult to reel in than others so it is recommended that you equip the best rod possible to make the process of fishing easier.As you catch more fishes, your fishing skills will improve and your character will level up making the process easier.
That’s it, now go ahead and grab a fishing rod to catch some fishes in Core Keeper!
