Save the World | Homebase Status Report 3.1.2022

By The Fortnite Team
Attention Commanders,

We have quite the wild Status Report for you today, so let's hop right in. Homebase Status Report - Initiate! 

Wildlife has torn its way into Save the World, and take on the new Brawl of the Wild Questline

Good news! The Wildlife of the land has begun to adapt to The Storm's forces and are now re-emerging into the environment. The flip side of this good news though… Some of the local Wildlife aren’t very friendly- yet. Confronting these beasts is very dangerous, but learning how to work with them may be the key to fighting back against The Storm.

Use bait to make friends with the Wildlife, or take the more defensive approach.. And by that I mean  hide in the shadows while they pick their own fights with the Husks. Either way, the day is ours!

Creature Taming 101: In order to tame an aggressive creature, throw a consumable like meat, corn, or mushrooms near it; while they are too distracted by the bait to focus on attacking you, go up and interact with them. This act of kindness shows the Wildlife that you are a friend, not food, which will encourage them to follow your lead. 

Homebase has got your back in terms of weapon slot usage. We’ve added a new consumables slot for things like the newly added pet consumables, M80s, Impulse Grenades, Port-A-Forts, etc. 

One thing we considered when making these new consumables was to not break existing Hero Loadouts that specifically focus on using consumables. Things like Coconuts, Sub Wafers, and Cannonballs will remain bound to weapon slots to prevent any clashing with pet consumables.

Note: Coconuts, Cannonballs and Sub Wafers will be able to be slotted in the consumables slot in a future update to further free up weapons space.

Tamed Wildlife will help you for the remainder of the mission, but once you return to your Homebase, they will return to the wild. Commanders can tame only one Wildlife at a time, so choose your companion wisely!

Now that you know how to tame them, let’s formally introduce you to the new members of our ecosystem.


The iconic apex predator! Wolves are very well balanced combatants as they can take a decent punch and do decent damage as well.

Wolves have wide jaws, making their bite capable of damaging multiple enemies at once! This can be very advantageous when fighting against packs of Husk.



An ancient and powerful creature has returned. Raptor’s razor sharp claws give their enemies a nice dose of Affliction

Affliction causes damage over time, which makes it very useful vs high health enemies such as Bosses and Mist Monsters.



These stocky creatures do not deal as much damage as a wolf or raptor but they can still easily dispose of smaller Husks and are strong enough to push around those beefy Huskies with their ferocious charge! Thanks to their sturdy build, Boars can soak up a lot of damage.

Boars make great allies outside of combat as well; they will go out of their way to dig up hidden loot for their favorite Commanders!



Naturally, Chickens aren’t suited for combat, but they can still provide quite the helping hand- or wing in this case.  Grabbing onto a Chicken will allow you to glide when jumping or falling from a distance.



Sadly, Crows don’t make very good friends… But word has it that hunting these foul fowls may reward you with valuable loot. 

Keep your eye out for the Crows that glow purple or orange, they will provide high rarity loot!



Like the Crows, Frogs aren’t the kind of creature that will want to help out; but at least their meat makes perfect bait!


Brawl of the Wild Questline

The Homebase Crew needs your help in dealing with the outbreak of Wildlife! Hunt them, tame them, electronically communicate with them (you'll have to ask Dennis about that one). Do whatever it takes to adjust to our new furry neighbors. Completing this Questline will reward you with the mysterious wolf lady, Gia!
