Fortnite Hunter's Cloak

The Hunter’s Cloak is a useful tool in Fortnite Season 6, so here’s everything you need and how to craft this unique item.

The Week 1 Quests for Fortnite Season 6 will ask you to craft a Hunter’s Cloak, but this is also an extremely useful tool when trying to score a Victory Royale.

Wildlife roams the Fortnite Island, which you can hunt for crafting materials, tame to fight by your side, and even use to fly across the map. It’s not all fun and games though, packs of vicious wolves prowl the wilderness, ready to attack any player that comes in their way.

However, with the Hunter’s Cloak equipped, animals will be thrown off your scent. Wolves won’t notice you, so you can either slip past or get close for a quick kill. But be careful, as soon as you fire your weapon, you’ll take the Cloak off and need to wait a short period to equip it again.

Here’s how to craft The Hunter’s Cloak in Fortnite Season 6.

Ingredients for Fortnite Hunter’s Cloak

To craft the Hunter’s Cloak, you’ll need:

  • Two animal bones
  • One piece of meat

Getting a hold of these ingredients is quite simple, but you’ll need to do a spot of hunting. Finding either wild boar, chickens or wolves won’t be too difficult, simply roam the island and it shouldn’t take long to find them.

Once you come across your prey, you’ll need to take them out and pick up the meat and bones they drop. Make sure you have two bones and one piece of meat, and you’ll be ready to craft the Hunter’s Cloak.

Once you have your meat and bones, you’ll need to access Season 6’s new crafting menu to create the Cloak.

Here’s how to craft and equip the Cloak:

  1. Open your inventory
  2. Scroll over to the new Crafting menu
  3. Select a piece of meat in your inventory
  4. Select the Hunter’s Cloak
  5. Either press X/Square or click on Craft
  6. Hover over the Cloak in your inventory
  7. Press the ‘fire’ key to equip it
  8. After a short delay, animals will now be unaware of your presence

This Cloak is a cheap but useful piece of equipment. Wolves will now be unaware of your presence, so you can easily avoid them, or get close for a kill to get more ingredients to craft weapons. And as a bonus, the first time you craft this will complete a Quest for Season 6 Week 1.

How to get struck by Lightning in Fortnite

Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite’s new Lightning weather effect, and how to get struck by it.

Lighting in Fortnite Chapter 3

Fornite added dynamic weather with the January 11 hotfix, which makes Lightning strike the Chapter 3 island. You can get a massive speed boost by being struck by Lightning, so here’s how.

Fortnite has introduced some Battlefield 2042-style weather effects that are sure to change how you play the battle royale. These include Tornadoes and Lightning, and each gives you a nifty boost if you can get near enough.

Here’s how to get struck by Lighting in Fortnite, and what happens when you do.

How to get struck by Lightning in Fortnite

Lightning striking in Fortnite

Epic Games revealed that to get struck by Lightning, you need to go underneath a storm cloud and either stand on a blue mark, be in water, or be on the highest land point below it.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to getting struck by Lightning:

  1. Look out for the storm clouds forming over the Fortnite island
  2. Go directly beneath the storm cloud
  3. Look for the glowing blue mark on the ground
  4. Stand on the blue mark
  5. Move off before you take any fire damage

The easiest method is looking out for the glowing blue marks on the ground. These will tell you exactly where the Lightning is set to strike, so you shouldn’t have any trouble. But be sure to move off before you take extra damage from the fire that the Lightning bolt strikes.

Luckily though, “Lightning doesn’t strike twice back-to-back,” so you don’t need to worry about getting immediately hit again.

What happens if you get struck by Lightning in Fortnite?

Getting struck by Lightning in Fortnite will deal 10 damage and give you the chili pepper speed effect for roughly 12 seconds.

You’ll need to decide if the damage is worth the speed boost, but it could give your opponent a nice surprise when you build over them faster than usual.

You’ll need to be careful though, as the Lightning bolts will set fire to anything they touch. So you’ll need to move off before you take even more damage through fire.


And that’s everything you need to know about getting struck by Lightning in Fortnite.
