Fortnite Season 6 Raptor

Raptors have arrived in Fortnite Season 6 following the 16.10 update, so here’s a full location guide to help you find and tame these dinosaurs to help you score a Victory Royale.

Introduced in the 16.10 update, Raptors now prowl Fortnite Season 6’s Primal island. These prehistoric beasts are lightning quick and can deal a lot of damage with their claws. You may want to avoid them, but you can also tame them to assist you in bringing home the win.

While you can also tame wolves and boars in Fortnite Season 6, these deadly new Raptors are a worthwhile companion. They can fight off other animals with ease and also deal some big damage to players if they get close enough.

Here’s where to find Raptors and how to tame them in Fortnite Season 6.

Where to find Raptors in Fortnite Season 6

As Season 6 has a primal theme, wildlife now roams the entirety of Fortnite’s island. Wolves, boars, chickens, and now Raptors can be found anywhere on the island, so keep your eyes peeled and you’ll be sure to spot them.

However, there are places you can go to maximize your chances of finding Raptors. There are several reports of Raptors frequently spawning near their eggs, which makes sense. Have a look around the Primal areas of the map with the brown dirt, such as The Spire and Bony Burbs and it shouldn’t take long to find these Jurassic monsters.
