Where Are The Dinosaurs In Fortnite?

The Raptors appear to work in a very similar fashion to the other animals in the Fortnite world, there doesn’t seem to be an exact location that they spawn.

You will be able to find the Raptors all over the Fortnite map, but their spawn rate and location are completely random. Ultimately, finding a Raptor will come down to sheer luck.

However, there are reports that they appear to be spawning at a higher rate near their hatched eggs.

You’ll know when you’ve located a Raptor because they will emit a loud screeching noise, so make sure you’re careful because these creatures can take you out in a couple of hits.

How To Tame The Dinosaurs In Fortnite

If you want to know how you can tame a Raptor in Fortnite, the process is quite simple.

Much like the other animals in the game, there are two different ways you can tame a Raptor. The first is to throw a piece of meat near them and hold the interact button next to them whilst they’re eating, if you’re careful enough this should tame them.

The other option is to craft a hunter’s cloak using meat and bones collected from other animals. The hunter’s cloak enables the player to get close to animals without them noticing you. Once you’ve crafted and equipped the cloak, you should be able to carefully approach the Raptor and hold the interact button to tame it.
