Fortnite Season 6 brought all kinds of wildlife to the game, and now wild birds of prey are popping up on the island. Just like wolves and boars, you can tame these birds of prey and have them follow you and help you in firefights. They are dangerous and require some work to tame, but the reward of a personal pet dinosaur is more than worth the risk. However, like some of the other wildlife on the island, they can be a little tricky to find, especially when other players are looking for them as well. This is where you can find and tame raptors in Fortnite.
Where to find raptors in Fortnite
Raptors can be found all over the map. Like other wildlife, they are quite rare and appear randomly. Raptors make a distinct chirp that is very different from other animal noises. So you should be able to hear them before you see them.
Here are all the places to find raptors in Fortnite.
- West of the Stealthy Stronghold
- Boney Burbs
- West of Weeping Woods
- South of the tower
- West of Misty Meadows
- North of Colossal Crops
- East of Craggy Cliffs
- North of Retail Row
- South of Retail Row
- Catty Corner
Here is a map of all of the Raptor spawn locations in Fortnite.
Again, raptors appear randomly so you may not find one if you fall in any of the locations marked above. They also tend to roam around so that they can migrate away from their original spawning sites. Other players can also tame or eliminate them before you can reach them.
How to tame a raptor
To tame a bird of prey, all you have to do is approach it while wearing a hunter’s cloak and press the interaction button. You don’t have to feed it meat or other items. You can even tame multiple raptors at once if you come across a pack. However, if you don’t wear a hunter’s cloak, the birds of prey will become hostile.
Raptors are much faster and more aggressive than wolves, making them the perfect partners for a battle royale. They attack all walls on their way that are supposed to help against enemies who like to lock themselves in. They also automatically attack any chickens that are nearby, which doesn’t help much, but there is still something to be aware of.
