Fortnite Season 6 introduced all manner of wild animals to the game, and ferocious raptors have now started appearing on the island. Just like wolves and boars, you can tame these raptors and have them follow you and help you in battles. They're dangerous and take quite a bit of work to tame, but the reward of a personal pet dinosaur is more than worth the risk. However, like some of the other wild animals on the island, they can be a bit tricky to find, especially with other players also hunting them. Here's where to find and tame raptors in Fortnite.
Raptors can be found all over the map. Like other wild animals, they are quite rare and appear randomly. Raptors make a distinct chirping sound that sounds very different from other animal noises, so you should be able to hear them before you see them.
Here are all the places you can find raptors in Fortnite.
- West of Stealth Fortress
- Boney Burbs
- West of Weeping Woods
- South of the spire
- West of Misty Meadows
- North of colossal crops
- East of the steep cliffs
- North of Retail Row
- South of Retail Row
- Coin Catty
Here is a map of all of the Raptor spawn locations in Fortnite.
Again, Raptors spawn randomly, so you won't be able to find any if you drop into any of the locations listed above. They also tend to move, allowing them to move away from their initial spawning ground. Additionally, other players can tame or eliminate them before you can reach them.
To tame a raptor, all you have to do is approach it wearing a hunter's cape and press the interact button. You don't need to feed him meat or other items. You can even tame multiple raptors at once if you encounter a pack of them. However, if you don't wear a hunter's cloak, the raptors will become hostile.
Raptors are much faster and more aggressive than wolves, making them perfect partners for a battle royale. They will attack any walls in their path, which should help against enemies who like to lock themselves in. They will also automatically attack nearby chickens, which won't help much, but it's still something to keep in mind.
Fortnite is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices.
