A brand new wild animal has arrived in Fortnite Season 6: Raptors! Here’s where to find the prehistoric dinosaurs, and how to tame them when you do.

Dexerto says “When Season 6 of Epic Games‘ hit battle royale Fortnite debuted in March 2021, one of the most exciting additions was without a doubt the ability to tame wild animals including wolves, boars, chickens, and even frogs. Epic promised that more wild animals would arrive as the season progressed, and many players suspected the slowly-hatching eggs that appeared around The Island hinted at the arrival of dinosaurs, matching the season’s Primal theme. Well, those rumors have now been confirmed, as raptors have arrived in Fortnite as part of the recent v16.20 patch update. Here’s everything you need to know about finding and taming these dangerous prehistoric creatures.”

Where to find raptors in Fortnite

Like any wild animal in the game, they will not always spawn in the same place every time. This means you’ll need to search around The Island, but there will be an element of luck, as other players will be looking for them too.


It does seem as though the raptors are spawning more near the hatched eggs, which makes sense. We’ve seen them at Stealthy Stronghold and near Boney Burbs, so the best spots to check are there.

Raptors will emit a screech to call their fellow dinosaurs when they spot you, so come prepared with weapons.

How to tame raptors in Fortnite

Here’s how to tame raptors in Fortnite Season 6:

  1. Eliminate a wild animal and pick up the meat they leave behind.
  2. Find a raptor near their hatched eggs. They’ll often hunt in packs, so be prepared.
  3. Throw the meat down near it and hide.
  4. Once the raptor is distracted by the meat, approach it quickly.
  5. Hold down the command button to ‘tame’ the raptor.

Another method is to use a Hunter’s Cloak. You’ll need to craft this using meat and bones attained from eliminating a few wild animals, so it’s not the quickest method but it will work.
