What is the Fortnite llama?

The Fortnite supply llama, sometimes called the loot llama or just llama, is a pinata-like loot cache that appears in a variety of game modes. It was previously classed as a type of container but, as of Chapter 2: Season 7, it was upgraded to an animal. Each Battle Royale match has five Supply Llamas, which spawn in random locations.

If you’re lucky enough to find one of those legendary llamas and approach it, it becomes alert and flees. As it runs, it drops ammunition and shield potions, and eventually begins glowing. Then, it rises into the air and disappears in a beam of light. If you manage to destroy it before it gets that far, it drops a big haul of loot.

If a supply llama receives -200 damage, falls from a great height, or takes a hit from a vehicle, Saucer’s laser cannon, rail gun, or the plasma cannon, it stuns them for a short period of time.

Llamas don’t spawn in Zero Build modes. However, Fortnite llama pinatas come in a variety of different forms in the Save the World game mode. We’ll dive into those later!

Fortnite llama tips

If you come across a Fortnite llama in the Battle Royale mode, you should start by crouching towards it or stunning it by dealing damage. After that, build four walls around it to stop it from running away, making it easier for you to eliminate it before time runs out.

Llamas do take fire damage, so a quick way to deal with them is by boxing them in with a stone or metal structure, and chucking in a bunch of firefly jars to damage them.
