Patch Notes for Creative v21.10 - Rideable Wildlife and Hired Guards

Fortnite has released the v21.10 update for Creative, introducing Rideable Wildlife, a Guard Spawner, Item Placer and bug fixes.

Rideable Wildlife

Let your imagination, and wildlife, run wild with the introduction of rideable wildlife in Fortnite Creative! In the Wildlife Spawner's Customize panel, set the Riding option to Enabled to allow players to ride wolves or boars from that Wildlife Spawner to be rideable in your game.

Hired Guards

You can now make Guards hireable in-game! Hired Guards will be on the same team as the player, follow them around, and attack opponents on sight. You can also customize the name for hired guards to add to their personality.

In the Guard Spawner device's Customize panel, set the Can Be Hired option to Yes and spawned guards can be hired by players in your game.

Item Placer Device

Ever wanted to place a weapon or keycard in a less obvious way? Then the Item Placer device is for you! Just drop any weapon or consumable into the Item Placer to place the weapon/consumable on a table, or to mount the weapon/consumable to a wall. With customizable interaction text, and the ability to determine whether or not the placed item drops to the ground, the Item Placer will add a new level of immersion to your islands.
