Fortnite: Everything You Need To Know About The Hunter’s Cloak

What exactly is the Hunter’s Cloak and how do you take advantage of it?

This new Fortnite season is primal themed and it brought some new cool mechanics for players to enjoy while playing a battle royale match.

However, it can be quite overwhelming when you’ve just started the game and are still playing your first few matches. Our guide will help you figure out how to craft a Hunter’s Cloak and give you some tips on what to do once you have it equipped.

Gathering Materials

To craft a Hunter’s Cloak, you’ll need to gather the right materials.

Crafting the Cloak itself is quite simple. You will only have to collect a couple of items that you can get from hunting. All you need is 2 animal bones and 1 meat.

To gather meat, you will have to kill an animal. But the animal bones will sometimes drop when you break furniture or and they can also drop from treasure chests.

How To Craft

Once you have the necessary items, it’s time to get crafting. There are two ways to get this done.

If you’ve just killed an animal and it dropped all of the necessary items once it died, you can actually craft it right away.

If you center your camera on the items, a key will appear on your screen. Pressing and holding it make your character craft the Hunter’s Cloak.

Another way to craft it is to open your inventory. Select the crafting tab.

And, once you’ve done that, select the meat that’s in your toolbar. If you have the necessary amount of animal bones, you can now craft the Hunter’s Cloak.

How To Equip The Hunter’s Cloak

You may be wondering, now that you know how to craft it, how you actually equip the Hunter’s Cloak.

Well, to equip all you have to do is use is it as if it were a shield. You equip the exact same way. Just press the button or keybind that is associated with ‘use’. It takes about 3 seconds to equip it so be careful if there are people around.

How The Hunter’s Cloak Works

This item is great because it prevents animals from being hostile towards you. You can get close to them and even tame them quite easily.

The Cloak will be automatically removed if you take damage, so if this happens just make sure to equip it once again.

If your objective is to tame animals, just approach them and hold the Tame button once you’re close enough. After taming the animal, it will be your friend for the rest of the match or until an opponent kills it. It will be loyal and attack opponents.

This is just one of the new mechanics of Season 6, Chapter 2. Check out what else is new by reading the update patch notes and most importantly, keep playing to discover what else the game has to offer.
