How to tame animals in LEGO Fortnite

If you want resources in abundance, you'll want some animals, too.

LEGO Fortnite is certainly a weird collision between worlds. In this survival-crafting game, you’ll be scouring luscious Fortnite maps for resources, meeting LEGO brick friends and creatures along the way. You’ll soon enough go about building your own village, and later, town, as you try to stay alive, complete quests, and attract more townsfolk.

And while befriending random townsfolk is all good and well, we can’t be neglecting the animals in LEGO Fortnite. They’re a pretty critical resource for farming and food, after all. With that in mind, here’s how to befriend animals in LEGO Fortnite.


How to teams animals in LEGO Fortnite

If you’re hoping to tame an animal in LEGO Fortnite, it’s fortunately very easy. All you need to do is lure in the four-legged friends with food! Or chase them down. It's up to you.

As demonstrated in a rather amusing format over on LEGO Fortnite’s X (formerly Twitter), the pumpkin is a good way to begin tempting some animals into being your friend.

You’ll want to start off by acquiring a pumpkin (or any crop of your choice), which are found quite easily across the LEGO Fortnite map. Raspberries and corn are also very easy to come by.

With the food in your inventory, all you need to do is slowly approach the animal and drop the food near them. They’ll rush over and scoff it, and if you’re lucky, they might reward you with a resource for the free meal. Cows will provide milk, sheep will provide wool, chickens will provide eggs, and so forth.

On top of this, you can pet animals after feeding them. Getting close enough to interact with and pet them will also net you some extra resources, so make sure not to neglect your local animals! You can also pet animals without feeding them, but you will need to chase them down temporarily instead of immediately gaining their trust with food.

If you’re hoping to build a Minecraft-style farm, we recommend building a pen using wooden half-walls or fences for now and luring nearby animals into it with food. Once you’ve plenty inside, close the pen on them, and voila, you’ve your own herd of cattle to tend to, or whatever other animal you choose.

We used half-walls initially, but you very quickly can unlock fences to trap animals in with ease. They also look a lot better than walls do, too.
