How to Use Fences


Can be used like a Tool

When you select the Fence item from your bag, you character will hold a hammer, and become able to place pieces of Fence with the A Button. Also, you can remove pieces of Fence you've already placed by pressing the Y Button to put them back into your bag.

Put away the Hammer with Down on the D-Pad

When you're ready to stop making Fences, press the Down button on D-Pad, or select the Fence again from your bag and select Put Away. Also, if you go into a building, it will automatically return to your bag.

How to Break Fences

Put Fences Away with the Y Button

By pressing the Y Button in front of a Fence, you can put it back into your bag. Even if you're holding a tool, you can still put away Fences with the Y Button just like any other placed item.
