Fortnite llamas are usually a welcome sight in the battle royale, and it's often a novelty to encounter them as they're so rare, with these piñatas serving as an iconic symbol of the game itself for some time now. When they were first introduced, these Supply Llamas (as they're officially called) were simple containers of loot, but more recently they've sprung to life as actual animals. This does make them significantly harder to defeat in Fortnite, as they start to run away as soon as they're alerted to your presence and if you don't deal enough damage to destroy them quickly then they'll teleport away from the area. If you're looking for the best Fortnite llama locations, then here's everything you need to know about them.
Fortnite Llama locations
On the map above we've marked various Fortnite llama locations we've discovered during our battle royales, though we must stress that their spawn locations are completely random in each match so this isn't a definitive indication of where they may appear for you. Back in Chapter 3 Season 1 you could always find a llama at the Llama Homestead landmark near Logjam Lumberyard, which is the only time there has been a guaranteed Fortnite llama location, but this has been removed so it's back to random placement again.
How to deal damage to Supply Llamas in Fortnite
As we mentioned earlier, the Fortnite llamas are now alive and will actively try to run away from you when you approach, dropping ammo and shield potions as it trots along. If you shoot them enough times you can temporarily stun them, and as with other players (and animals) in the game, headshots deal more damage so these can help you to bring down the bright purple creatures faster. If you manage to get close enough while a Fortnite llama is stunned, you can quickly build walls around it to fence it in, which will make dealing the remaining damage required to eliminate it much easier. Destroy the llama and 500 of each material will be yours, along with a decent selection of ammo and items too. Great job, now go put those supplies to good use!
