How to Tame Raptors

Thankfully, you are able to tame raptors in the game, like you can wolves and boars.

They're more aggressive than other creatures, so you'll need to be careful, but you can throw meat near one and hold square/X to tame it while it's eating, or use the Hunter's Cloak.

We've got a full guide on how to craft one of those here, and they can be very helpful for getting close to an animal without being spotted.

CAREFUL: Raptors will kill you quickly

Equip it, sneak up close to the dinosaur (you've only got 10 seconds) and you'll be able to tame it quickly.

The raptor will then fight alongside you until it dies.

Can You Ride the Dinosaurs

Unfortunately, while you can tame the raptors in Fortnite, you're not able to ride them.


If that's a feature that's added to the game at a later date, we'll be sure to let you know.

For now, get out there and start hunting the menacing creatures.
