Scents are triggered by Scent Capsules which are consumable items used to attract and spawn creatures in your immediate vicinity. Scents will only attract and spawn creatures for yourself and will have no impact for other players. 

Scent Capsules and Inventory: 

Scent Capsules can be purchased from the market, but you can also receive them by opening Supply Drops, participating in monthly Battle Passes, and from events. 

Your Scent Capsules can be accessed from the new Inventory icon that appears on your Map. You can only hold a maximum of 2 Scent Capsules per Scent type in your Inventory. When at the Inventory limit, additional Scents Capsules will not be added. For example, your amount will stay at 2/2 even if you earn a third Scent Capsule, so please be sure to use them prior. Purchasing Scent Capsules directly from the Market, however will still be added and bypasses the Inventory limit. 

Scents and Timers: 

Scents don’t last forever but you’ll be able to see when one is active and for how long via the timer that appears above your Inventory icon on the Map. Most have a timer of 20 minutes. This timer will remain active even after you've darted a creature attracted from the Scent. Be sure to take advantage of this timer to walk around and attract many creatures!

Recommendations on How to Best Use Scent Capsules:

  • Scent Capsules are more efficient if you walk at a reasonable pace. Your movement will attract more creatures. 
  • Be careful not too move too fast. If you use a Scent Capsule in a car or on public transportation, creatures won't be able to keep up with you!
  • Please note that a guaranteed Rare or Epic creature is not guaranteed to be the first one to appear. You never know when it'll show up!
