Fortnite raptors are the latest addition to the ever-evolving world. These Fortnite dinosaurs join the boars, frogs, and chickens that currently make up the Fortnite fauna. We've expected them to start roaming the map for a while now, ever since quite obvious dinosaur eggs were found in the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 update. So what is there to know about the new hostile beasts? Well, you can tame these Fortnite dinosaurs, but they're difficult to find in the first place. We've got all you need to know about the new Fortnite raptors.

How to find raptors in Fortnite

We've marked a number of Fortnite raptor spawn locations that have been discovered on the map above, although these don't always guarantee you'll find one there. There's a certain random element to where the Fortnite dinosaurs will appear, especially as they roam around the island, though anecdotally there may be more likely to spawn near the eggs they've hatched from. Keep an eye out for a pair of Fortnite raptors as they always roam in pairs, so if you do find one there'll be another close behind. We've had most luck so far encountering them around Stealthy Stronghold, in the northwest corner of the map.

Taming Fortnite raptors is fairly simple, but you need to have some raw meat or fish in your inventory to throw for them to eat. When the Fortnite dinosaurs start chomping on the food, you can slowly approach and interact with the Fortnite raptor to attempt to tame it. Make sure you have enough food though – one piece likely won't cut it. Alternatively, you can use the Hunter's Cloak item to tame one, but you'll need to kill some other wild animals first to craft that.

Fortnite raptors are the strongest animal in the game so if you're unable to tame one right away, make sure you've got a shotgun or another powerful weapon equipped to blast them in the face when they attack. If you do manage to tame it though, these Fortnite dinosaurs prove to be a loyal companion in fights.
