Follow your Wolfscent instincts.

Fortnitemares is here, and with it comes a slew of spooky skins, map changes, and more. Players can also enjoy the Halloween season in Fortnite with several new abilities. This includes the Wolfscent ability, which may leave you wondering how the Wolfscent ability works in Fortnite.

The Wolfscent ability is a new ability that allows you to track other players. When active, it will mark enemies that are nearby. If no enemies are nearby, it will enter a cooldown period. This ability will last for a limited time once you acquire it, so make sure you get some use out of it.

How to get the Wolfscent ability in Fortnite

To get the Wolfscent ability in Fortnite, you must find the Howler Claws, a new item you can get by dancing on an alteration alter. Once you gain this item, you can howl and activate its marking abilities. If you are being hunted and marked by another player with the Wolfscent ability, you will hear an audible heartbeat that gets louder as the hunter gets closer.

The Wolfscent ability is just one ability gained from the Howler Claws, but it is a pretty strong, as it can help you find opponents. This lets you get the drop on them or simply avoid them and wait for the endgame.
