The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.

  • The Pro Fishing Rod can be used to deal damage to an enemy player by pulling them off a high structure, or be used to pull a knocked opponent close to you to easier obtain their loot. However this is very impractical.
  • The Pro Fishing Rod can be used to obtain ammo or healing if you have some downtime in a match, however, you are very vulnerable when doing so.
