Cloak Gauntelts are brand-new weapon added as part of the Fortnite 25.10 update. These unique items open the door for some unique plays, so here’s how to get Cloak Gauntlets in Fortnite.

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 is in full swing, and players are slowly getting used to the new-look map and creative Kinetic Boomerang weapon. But while players grind the Battle Pass to earn the Optimus Prime skin, the devs are working on new updates to keep the content coming.

The Fortnite 25.10 update was another major overhaul, introducing the first Ranked Play reset and some new weapons. Among these additions are Cloak Gauntlets, a unique item that’s unlike anything we’ve seen in Fortnite to date.

If you’re looking to add them to your arsenal, here’s how to get Cloak Gauntlets in Fortnite.

Where to find Cloak Cloak Gauntlets in Fortnite

Cloak Gauntels can be found like any other Fortnite weapon, either as ground loot or hiding in Chests. Unlike other unique weapons, such as the Star Wars Lightsabers, there is no set location containing Cloak Gauntlets, it’s simply luck of the draw when looting up.

However, there is a Mythic version of the Cloak Gauntlets, which can be obtained by defeating Wildguard Relik. This powerful boss can be seen roaming the jungle section in the middle of the island.

At the time of the writing, slaying the boss and picking up the Wildguard Relik’s Cloak Gauntlets is the only way to guarantee Cloack Gauntlets in any match.

How to use Cloak Gauntlets in Fortnite

Once you’ve tracked down a pair of Cloak Gauntelts in Fortnite, press the fire button to instantly turn invisible.

While equipped, you won’t be able to use another weapon to deal damage, but it’s perfect for escaping a difficult situation or getting the drop on unsuspecting enemies. That being said, you can end the invisibility early by switching to another weapon, ideal for unleashing a quick sneak attack.

The cloaking only lasts for a limited time but works on a cooldown, so you’ll be able to use the ability as often as you like, providing you keep them in your inventory.
