If you want to find Fortnite wolf spawns then we can help you find them. This particular quest is part of the Grim Fable punchcard and shouldn't take too long to tick off as long as you can actually find a wolf in Fortnite

Wolves, along with boars, are still in the game after Season 6's Primal theme and while leaks suggest you'll be able to ride them at some point, the current objective is to kill one. If you can find them that is. The slightly random nature of  where they can appear means you might run into loads in a match, or see none at all. So where's the best place to look to get lucky and hunt a wolf in Fortnite.

As a rule you'll find Fortnite wolves around wooded areas and anywhere that feels outdoorsy. However, it's largely random and there's always a chance that other players could have got to them first or led them away from the more obvious spots However, Boney Burbs seems to be the best place to look right now with the best chance of finding a pack of wolves to mess with. Misty Meadows is also a close second. We've marked the map above to highlight those two areas, as well as some of the other spots that have been good wolf spawn areas in the past - if you can't get to Boney Burbs in a match try one of those areas instead.

There are actually two different methods for how to tame wolves in Fortnite, and although they are both effective your current circumstances will dictate which is going to be the most appropriate to carry out. The first process involves throwing a piece of meat near the wolf to distract it, so if you don't already have that in your inventory and you've discovered a pack of wolves then you can hunt one of them first to get some meat.

Once the wolf is busy eating the meat you've thrown, approach it quickly then follow the Tame prompt which will take a couple of seconds. With that completed, a cluster of love hearts will appear and you'll have tamed the wolf. Bear in mind that any other wolves nearby can still attack you, so you should whittle the pack down to just one first.

The other method is arguably easier, but takes a little preparation. First, use Fortnite crafting to combine meat to make the Hunter's Cloak, then activate it and wait for the 10 second countdown to elapse. Once activated, you can then approach any animals and they won't react to you, meaning you can stroll straight up to a wolf and follow the Tame prompt without fear of attack from it or any others in the pack. As the wolf will keep moving while you're rooted to the spot, you may need to stand in front of it before your start taming so it can't immediately walk out of range.
