PSA: Don’t attack the animals in LEGO Fortnite

There are dozens of intriguing gameplay options in LEGO Fortnite but one in particular is grabbing people’s attention like no other.

LEGO Fortnite has virtually endless activities for players to get stuck into, thanks to its open-world concept but gamers around the world have been captivated by one element in particular: the animals. The Epic Games x the LEGO Group collaboration holds a lot of similarities to Minecraft, being open-world, creativity-focused, and centred around building. It’s perhaps no surprise then that many gamers jumped to killing the in-game animals for resources – only to realise you don’t need to.

Instead, you can actually pet the animals, resulting in some adorable emotes and the possibility of them gifting you resources like milk, eggs, and wool in return. Killing them might result in other resources but if you want to play a pacifist (at least against animals) version of the game, there are benefits for doing so.

Safe to say, LEGO Fortnite players love the opportunity to play a peaceful version of the game where you can simply wander around petting animals in the hope of getting a gift in return. Who knew a battle royale game could produce something quite so wholesome?

Although let’s have a moment of silence for all those LEGO Fortnite animals that were tragically killed before players realised they didn’t need to die in order to harvest resources from them. RIP.

I write about all the very best fandoms – and that means LEGO, of course. Spending so much time looking at and talking about LEGO sets is dangerous for my bank balance, but the LEGO shelves are thriving. You win some, you lose some.
