You can craft the the Hunter’s Cloak in Fortnite after collecting the following items:

  • 2 x Animal Bones
  • 1 x Meat

Both items can be gained by killing the new animals found roaming areas of the island. Boars will drop two Animal Bones and one Meat, which is exactly what you’re after. 

Grab what you need, then open your inventory and swap to the crafting tab. In here you should see all the items and weapons you can craft based on what you’re holding.

Choose the Hunter’s Cloak from the options to craft it over three seconds – make sure you’re in a safe spot while you do so! You can find a full list of crafting recipes here, in case you want to see what else is available in the new season.

What the Fortnite Hunter’s Cloak does

The Hunter’s Cloak will stop animals on the map like the wolves and boars from attacking you when near. They won’t react to your presence at all, which makes wearing the Hunter’s Cloak a great way to get close enough to tame a wolf in Fortnite.

The Hunter’s Cloak won’t protect your from animal that other players have tamed, so watch out for them sprinting your way in the middle of a gunfight. If more animals and creatures are added to Fortnite, you’ll likely want to craft a Hunter’s Cloak to keep you safe from them.

That’s all you need to know about the Hunter’s Cloak in Fortnite. With the recipe ready you can craft the Hunter’s Cloak at will to help you tame some animals. Be aware that it’ll hog a space in your inventory, so you might want to drop it in the latter stages of the game.
