Fortnite players can tame wildlife in Chapter 2, Season 6: Primal. Here's how to do it.

There are three unique animals players can tame while adventuring through the dimensionally-fractured Fortnite Island: wolves, boar, chickens, and raptors. However, these aren't the only creatures to appear on the map. Players can also find chickens and frogs which serve their own purpose in the game. For those looking for a useful animal companion, however, they'll want to stick to the first three.

Fortunately, the process to taming each animal is basically identical. The easiest way to its heart is through its stomach. Players will need to find the animal's favorite food and muster up all their courage in order to obtain a new furry—or scale-y—friend.

We've broken down the steps, below:

  1. Choose an animal: Wolf, Boar, or Dinosaur
  2. Obtain its corresponding food: meat, vegetables, and more meat, respectively.
  3. Find the animal.
  4. Equip the food.
  5. "Fire" the food toward the animal.
  6. While it's eating, approach the animal and wait for the "Tame" prompt.
  7. Hit "Tame."

Voila! If performed successfully, players should have an animal companion that will now follow them around the map and aid them in combat.

Remember, don't want to waste time between when the animal starts eating to when players need to get close. Some may finish their meal quicker than others—which leaves very little room for error. Once finished with their food and left untamed, animals will return to their regularly scheduled programming and become hostile on sight.
