Fishing is an important mini-game in NieR Replicant which is required to complete a number of fishing quests from the Fisherman at the Seafront Pier. In this NieR Replicant guide, we’ve shared some tips to help players with fishing, locations of fish, and a list of useful items that can be found while fishing.
NieR Replicant Fishing Tips
To start fishing, the first thing to do is to find some fish. There are a lot of locations but more on that later. After finding a fish, press B/Square to select bait (buy it from the Tackle Shopkeeper) and start fishing. After the rod bends, continue to move in the opposite direction – don’t reel in immediately! Keep on moving in the opposite direction to reduce fish’s HP and then reel in. Remember not to stop moving until the HP is completely depleted.
One thing to keep in mind is to ensure that the fishing rod is properly bent. A small tip is to keep note of where NieR is leaning – this is the direction that players need to pull in.
Now that we’ve got a basic understanding of how fishing works in NieR Replicant, let’s talk about items related to it.
