LEGO® Fortnite v29.30: Farm Friends!

The Fortnite Team

LEGO® Fortnite seems ripe for another major update. Nay, a content harvest! Turn animals into friends and populate your Villages’ acres in v29.30 (a.k.a. the Farm Friends update), which brings animal recruitment and major Village improvements to your world’s pleasant pastures. 

Get those Shovels ready because you’re gonna dig this one. Farm Friends launches April 23! 

LEGO Fortnite FarmFriends

The Animals are Ready to Mooooooooooooove In 

It’s never lonely at the farm! The Farm Friends update increases the Village recruitment cap to ten per Village. Three Village slots are available to Villagers, three slots are available to animals, and four slots are available to Villagers OR animals. 

Animals you can recruit to your Village include cows, sheep, chickens, and a new animal arriving with this update: pigs!

How to Tame and Recruit Animals 

1. Build an Animal Barn 

You’ll need to gain the trust of wild animals before you can lead them back to your Village. But before they’re ready to follow you, you’re gonna need to build them a new home: an Animal Barn. 

The Animal Barn is a new Station, made for feeding your animals and farming resources. You’ll unlock the Animal Barn recipe once your Village reaches Level 2!

2. A Friend with Feed is a Friend Indeed 

The way to an animal’s heart is through its stomach. Build the trust of wild animals by petting them, then gain their friendship by giving them an Animal Treat! Unlock the recipe for Animal Treats by building an Animal Barn.

 3. Be the Shepherd

If the animal accepts your delicious treat, you’ve got a limited amount of time to get them back to your Village. Make sure their journey back is a peaceful one — any unpleasant encounters could upset them so much that they give you the hoof! 

Get creative with how you lead an animal back to your Village. Lure them into a vehicle for a quick journey, use a Fishing Rod to pull them across tight spots, or cross barriers by building bridges! If the animal gets hurt on the journey, make sure to heal them by giving them another Animal Treat.

4. Assign Animals to Animal Barns and Keep Them Happy! 

When you’ve braved the journey back, it’s time to put a roof over your new companion’s head! Interact with an Animal Barn to assign your animal its new home, and to name it from a selection of names. (Only one animal can be assigned per Animal Barn.) 

Once they’re settled in, it’s your job to ensure they enjoy life on the farm. Keep your animals happy by feeding them, petting them, or having a boogie next to them! You can also build objects for them to interact with.

If your animals feel ignored, they won’t stick around for long. We recommend assigning a Villager to take good care of them when you’re not around! 

Resources Galore 

We reap what we sow. Take good care of your animals and you’ll be rewarded with new resources to help you out:

  • Chickens produce Feathers and Fertilizer over time.

  • Cows produce Milk and Fertilizer over time.

  • Sheep produce Wool and Fertilizer over time.

  • Pigs produce Mushrooms and Fertilizer over time.

New Villagers 

Five new Villagers are ready to lend a helping hand and separate the wheat from the chaff! Cadence is a master woodworker, Ash is wild about plants, and Brooks is all about channeling nature’s beat! 

As for the bright and cheerful engineer Lana Llane, she can’t wait to settle in a Village and find some new projects to work on. And then there’s Guernsey. Guernsey is… one of a kind. 

Beware the Bear!

Farm Friends is all about making new friends, whether they’re animals or Villagers. That said, not all of the animals like to play nice… 

LEGO Fortnite Bear

Bear = bad. Don’t let Bears follow you back to your Village because you’ll never hear the end of it. Thankfully, they’re quite sleepy and can be easily avoided… as long as you’re quiet. 

New Animal Variants

LEGO Fortnite Animal Variants

Farming has never looked so fantastic. Farm Friends adds new variants for animals:

  • Brown and tan chickens spawn in the Dry Valley.

  • Yellow chickens spawn in the Grasslands.

  • Cows now have different spot patterns and colors. 

 Try to find every variant of animal in the wild!

Major Improvements, Adjustments, and Bug Fixes 

Village Square Improvements 

LEGO Fortnite Village UI Improvements

The Village Square UI has been revamped to help you keep a close eye on your Villages: 

  • Monitor who lives in your Village, the backstories of your Villagers, and the happiness of your animals. You can also view the jobs of Villagers and even ask them to leave.

  • You can see who’s visiting your Village, which jobs are assigned, the biome you’re in, and your Village’s upgrade requirements. You can also edit your Village banner and rename your Village from a selection of names. 

(Another Village improvement: you can now choose from a selection of names when first setting up your Village.)

Graze Upon These Bug Fixes 

  • Fixed an issue where stamina would sometimes become enabled in worlds where stamina was turned off.

  • Fixed an issue where saplings couldn’t be destroyed if they were growing near other objects.

  • Fixed an issue where swords would sometimes stop doing damage.

  • Fixed an issue where the first attack from swords would sometimes miss.

  • Fixed an issue that caused some Pickaxes to stop doing damage to certain objects.

  • Villagers no longer pester players when players are regenerating Health.

  • Starting a sneak while sprinting no longer makes players stuck in sprinting.
