    About 4,000 people report that few fish are missing for about 4 months. Ubisoft: 'hmmm...let's investigate. Investigate what? It would take a dev / QA tester few minutes to see that the fish are missing.

    Hello there!

    I'd like to reach out to you all with an update. I'm happy to announce that the development team intend to deploy several fixes in regards to fishing in TU 1.2.2. This update will be deployed 15 June, 2021 at 2 PM CEST / 8 AM ET. The team are deploying a fixes for the following issue:

    • Addressed an issue that prevented players from catching fish from a small boat. 
    • Addressed various issues with Ubisoft Core Challenges unlocking (Stinky but Deadly)

    If you are still encountering trouble with either of these issues following TU 1.2.2, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can take a closer look. Please include a video that shows the following:

    • You have the latest Title Update installed on your platform. You can view this information in the opening game menu in the bottom right-hand corner.
    • The issue you're still encountering in-game (such as Stinky but Deadly remaining locked despite meeting the requirements).

    Additionally, please ensure that you have an up-to-date save uploaded to the cloud. We can then pass these reports to the development team for further investigation.

    I'd also like to provide you all with an update regarding the missing fish. Following TU 1.2.1, big flatfish / mackerel and small halibut / sturgeon were added to selected locations in-game. We have not yet had any new information about these fish being added into additional locations in TU 1.2.2. As the development team mentioned they intended to release a full fix for this issue in June in their Dev Blog, I have reached out to them for an update. As soon as we have any new information to share you about these missing fish, we will let you all know within this thread as soon as we are able to.

    EDIT 15 June 2021, 15:10 UTC: The development team have reached out with an update about the repopulation of the missing fish. They should now be more widely available throughout the world for you to catch! 🎣

    If you are still unable to find big flatfish/mackerel or small halibut/sturgeon whilst fishing in the world, please don't hesitate to reach out so we can investigate this further.

    Thank you! 😊

    7 posts, march 2021, and I still can't find Big Flatfish and Big Mackerel. I've done everything in the game, all hunting deliverys... I have also pick all of the small golden dots in all the maps... But I can't finish the Fishing Delivery cause the devs don't even try to fix these two fishs spawn... Frustrating... A lot!

    @figurellllo update was pretty much just to fix the crashing issues related to the Ostara Festival. Which, by the way, they completed in A WEEK!!!!!!

    So Ubisoft has removed two challenges from Division 2 that are obtainable, but won't remove this one?! Unbelievable. Who in the hell actually wants the Swordfish as a weapon? I want to complete the challenges. Please fix the Stinky but Deadly challenge, or nix it. This is ridiculous.Oh, and a reminder: anyone with this challenge completed is a cheater.

    Hi guys. Since last update from festival and other stuff, some nasty bugs have pop out, in the seas specifically, some fish start floating out of the water with waves, halibut and flatfish come out of water and heat deformed, it's really annoying when you are fishing and also very ugly

    @nuttlestuff Thanks! I will give it a try. I read that there were people dying on purpose at Scotthoh farm for this, sat there for a long time on several occassions, just to have a conversation with a bird and nothing more. I will give Norway a shot!

    @drewski989 also just to the north east of the farm there are some pigs that attack (near 2 trees). I got 3 or 4 revenge missions there. Wait on 1 of the branches and wait for your bird to land on you.

    Looks like ubisoft are still scratching their heads and still clueless so instead of fixing or just changing requirements they are disabling stinky but deadly until the figure it out ... GREAT thinking after all this time

    I dont know what this deactivation brings us or takes away from us...this is just a useless step in my opinion to tell us hey the wait will still be long friends.

    A hotfix would have been the right move, not deactivating a challenge that can stay there with no problem. Just add those fish types to specific areas and this is it! What is so hard about this. Thy dont need to go out of their way and try to fix this stuff. Just make those two fish types new and from scratch and add them to some areas...this is it! OR give us a "Godly Gift" with these fishes to get the weapon, disable this challenge and forget about this fix alltogether. Justlet us buy this fish or get it after reaching some settlement point or giving the boy some specific amount of fish.

    I really dont want to start searching the whole map for those specific two fish types after i finished the game and they fix this. It would have been no problem in my normal gaming flow when i first play trough this game. But going out searching for a specific type is just annoying when you seen all areas and completed everything there. I was able to get all needed fish without even searching for it.

    PSA: As of today, they have now REMOVED the "Wield the Swordfish" challenge from Ubisoft Connect instead of fixing the bug. Unbelievable... This doesn't solve the issue with the fact that nobody can finish the last two deliveries without the big flatfish/mackerel. Come on!

    @neovoltron They are fixing it. It specifically states "temporarily" deactivated and they'll let us know when they "challenge is live again".

    @theeelf Oh? Where did they say that?

  • ImaginaryRuins

    Since they say it is currently impossible to complete that Ubisoft Connect challenge, they are officially acknowledging that those big fish are impossible to obtain, which is good news at least because that means the issue will be resolved, one day.

    Knowing this, I can "rest" now.

    @imaginaryruins I'd like to be hopeful that they are fixing it in the next monthly patch but it would seem silly to remove it for 14 days if they were adding it then. Fingers crossed but at least there's a little more acknowledgement on it.

    @elmadre1 Oh! Don't know why I didn't get a notification for that, I'm subscribed to News & Announcements. Thanks!
