Chapter 4 is already underway in Fortnite, and with it, Epic Games has brought back some of the mechanics from previous seasons.
Partway through Chapter 3, players were officially able to ride different animals they found in the wild — if they could tame them, of course. If you haven't already taken a spin on one of these wildlife creatures, you'll want to for some additional XP during the 2023 Summer Event.
Here's everything you need to know on how to tame and ride animals in Fortnite.
How to tame and ride wolves and boars in Chapter 4 of 'Fortnite.'
Before you can hop on the back of a wolf or boar, you'll first need to locate the animal of your choice.
In Chapter 4, boars often spawn near Anvil Square, so start your hunt for them there. Wolves, on the other hand, have quite a few spawn points around the map this season. You can find them near the Citadel, Shattered Slabs, and Frenzy Field.
Before you can ride either animal, you'll first have to tame it. Boars will be distracted by fruits and vegetables, while wolves will only eat meat.
When you find a boar, place the food nearby and wait for it to begin munching on it. While it's distracted, sneak up behind it and attempt to mount it. So long as you do this delicately enough, you should be able to successfully tame and ride the beast.
Wolves, unfortunately, are a different deal. Because they usually travel in packs, you'll have to first isolate a wolf, which may require killing the others in the pack. Place a piece of meat nearby and the wolf should ignore you for the meat.
When you feel confident enough, all you have to do is sneak up behind it while it's eating and interact with it. This will allow you to tame and mount it. While on its back, you can even pet it for additional XP.
What animals can you ride in Chapter 4 of 'Fortnite'?
Being able to ride an animal around the map is something Fortnite's developers have played with in the past. When raptors and other dinosaurs were briefly brought to the title, players could ride them — so long as they followed the appropriate steps beforehand.
Wolves and boars were also previously rideable in the game, and if you managed to grab onto a chicken, it would let you fly short distances.
Alternatively, you could also tame these animals so that they could assist you in battle, attacking enemies at your request.
In Chapter 4 of Fortnite, players can once again ride wolves and boars around the map. In previous seasons, players needed a saddle if they wanted to ride one of these creatures around, and they also needed to tame them first if they were particularly aggressive.
