How to Upgrade Village Rating in LEGO Fortnite

Village rating can be increased by simply building more stuff within your village. This can include shelter, campfires, furniture, machines, and even small items like silverware.

While in the village, there is a meter in the upper right corner of the screen that will fill as you place more things down near the Village Square piece. When placing down any piece, players can see the edges of the village as a glowing ring to make sure they are still building within the village.

Once the village rating bar has been filled completely, players can upgrade their village at the Village Square. However, each village level will require other resources in order to upgrade.

To summarize: The greater the variety and quantity of structures you create (including walls, workbenches, and decorations), the higher your village rating will increase. Once this rating reaches the threshold for leveling up your village, the Village Square will radiate a golden glow, indicating it’s time to upgrade your village.

All LEGO Fortnite Village Upgrades

Villages can be upgraded to level 10 in LEGO Fortnite. Each level requires a certain number of resources and the village rating meter filled completely. Players will receive different perks for upgrading their village, including having more villagers able to join and giving them jobs to refine resources. Here are the requirements and rewards for each village level:
