Fortnite’s Raptors are exclusively found in the new jungle area that emerged from the center of the Fortnite island. The best POIs to find Raptors are therefore:

  • Creeky Compound
  • Rumble Ruins
  • Shady Stilts

However Raptors and their nests full of Eggs, will be found all throughout the new forest area; they’re not limited to just the POIs.

How to Tame Raptors in Fortnite

To tame a Raptor, players can find a Raptor egg and hold Square / X / E to hatch it. Once hatched, the Raptor will be friendly to the player and instantly let them ride it.

Alternatively, Fortnite players can bait the Raptors by dropping raw meat from hunting wild animals such as Boar, allowing them to get close enough to tame the beasts.

By holding interact while a Raptor is busy eating, you’ll be able to tame an adult Raptor! You’ll need to act fast though, as the dinos are very speedy eaters!

Finally, another method of taming a wild Raptor is to sneak up on it and jump onto its back. This will instantly tame the Raptor and allow you to mount it.

If you’re being chased by a Raptor, try jumping right onto its back and you’ll have a new dino friend in no time.

Once tame, the Raptor will follow the player who tamed it, allowing them to ride on its back and helping to protect them from danger. If its master is eliminated, the Raptor will charge at the enemy who killed them.

How to Ride Raptors in Fortnite

While riding a Raptor, players can shoot and reload their weapons freely.

Mounting a Raptor will give players much more speed and maneuverability than they would have on foot. Alongside grinding on jungle vines, they’re one of the best new ways to get around the map.
