Where To Hunt Wildlife In Fortnite?

Wildlife was an interestingly new mechanic that was introduced in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6. Loopers could hunt these animals and use their parts as crafting material.

That crafting bit was lost the moment the aliens decided to invade the island but the wildlife still remained. They're wonderful hosts for alien parasites in Fortnite Season 7.

But now with the release of Season 8, where do you find these animals on the island? And where do you hunt wildlife?

Truth be told, there isn't any specific location where you can just hunt wildlife. They're spread out all over the map.

However, since they're animals, grassy areas would be the best place to look for them. When it comes to frogs, swampy and marshy areas just fit their type too.

Nevertheless, players who are looking for a guaranteed shot at hunting wildlife in Fortnite should pay a visit to the now unnamed Stealthy Stronghold POI. If you've been playing Fortnite for a while you will know that Stealthy Stronghold is the place where Predator was seen in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5.

If you're rather new to the game, Stealthy Stronghold is the northernmost location in the game. It's an enclosure of sorts with a small tropical rainforest, like an ecosystem.

Having said that, once you have managed to spot a wild animal across the terrain, you can simply choose a weapon of your liking and attack the animal with it. You will need to keep attacking and hitting the animal until its entire health bar is depleted.

We recommend that you use firearms while trying to hunt animals as they will counter-attack, causing you to lost health. Additionally, it is also important to be careful while wandering into the close vicinity of these animals as it will set them off to attack you.

Have fun hunting!
