How to tame a wolf in Fortnite Chapter 2, season 6

Fortnite Chapter Two, season six has launched, bringing hordes of wild animals to the game. They’re tied to new gameplay mechanics reminiscent of the survival genre, such as hunting, crafting, and taming.

Taming wild animals has several uses. It’ll be a part of weekly challenges that players have to complete to earn XP toward the battle pass and reach higher tiers up to the 100th.

It will also give players another way to get an edge on their opponents. For example, it’s now possible to tame chickens to fly.

Here’s how to use taming to your advantage.

How to tame a wolf in Fortnite Chapter Two, season six

Discretion is paramount to succeed in taming. Whatever wild animal you want to tame, you have to get close to it first without it noticing you, or else it’ll run away.

To tame a wolf, in particular, you have to drop a piece of meat in front of it. Meat is dropped by wild animals when you’ve slain them.

When it approaches you, it’ll be time to get even closer and then catch it using the interaction key, which is E on PC.

Then, you’ll be able to use the wolf to fight alongside you and become a more dangerous threat to your enemies.

It goes without saying that taming won’t work if enemies start to come your way. If they see you crouching, they’ll likely shoot and try to kill you, so make sure the field is clear before trying to tame a wild animal.
