How to Eat in Lego Fortnite When You Are Hungry

To eat in Lego Fortnite when you are hungry, you have to place a raspberry or pumpkin or ear of corn or whatever into the hotbar. They go there by default when you pick them up, but you might have moved them into your inventory. Open the inventory and place the food item into the hotbar, tab over to it using L1 and R1 on PlayStation / LB and RB on Xbox, and eat it by pressing R2 / RT / right mouse click. It’s a little finicky to do on the controller, but it’s nothing too bad all things considered. Just keep an eye on your hunger in the top left corner of the screen. Do not let it go too far down, or you will start starving and eventually die. Top it off every so often, but mind your resources.

And there you have it, that’s how you eat in Lego Fortnite when you are hungry. It’s interesting to see the game implement survival mechanics. And if you opt to go for the mode that includes monsters and enemies, you’ll practically get the full Valheim experience. Well, not really, but you get what I mean. Now, there are probably going to be other food sources, you just begin with the humble raspberry and pumpkin and corn. I know for certain that you can milk cows at some point, which is neat. But overall, be sure to have some food on you at all times, since it both sates your hunger and heals you.

Now, I’m sure some of you don’t want to deal with the hunger meter. That does kinda rob you of the full experience, but hey, you should play however you want. So, if you don’t want to eat in Lego Fortnite, make a new world and toggle Hunger off. Same goes if you don’t want to be cold; toggle Temperature off.
