Getting your hands on some defensive weapons is important in any survival game, especially in LEGO Fortnite. But, if you’re a few days in and trying to survive, knowing how to craft your own weapons could be a literal lifesaver.
How To Create Weapons in LEGO Fortnite
To craft a weapon of your own, you’ll first need to create a Crafting Bench. Once you have found the exact spot you’d like to place it, build it and get ready to get to work. Approach the crafting bench and use the button displayed on the screen to start creating your new weapons.
For example, here’s how to make a basic Shortsword:
- Deposit 5 pieces of wood to make 5 wooden rods.
- Craft a shortsword at any Crafting Bench with 5 wooden rods.
Since you’ll likely need items like the Wooden Rod to get these particular weapons built, start crafting a Lumber Mill. It will make your life a whole heck of a lot easier once you can make these particular pieces on your own. Plenty of weapons need these unique parts, and you can even use the Crafting Bench to create Shields and Arrows. Be sure to get a Sword as quickly as possible.
Since the Crafting Bench is one of the easiest things to create in the world, you can throw one up next to a Campfire no matter where you are in the world to ensure that you’re always stocked up on plenty of weapons and armor before investigating the caves that wait before you. It’s a surprisingly dangerous world out there in LEGO Fortnite, so always be prepared.
Now that you know how to keep yourself well armed at all times, find out what kind of weapons you can make at these benches. We’ve got your back with our section below, so be sure to dive in before jumping into this unique world to keep yourself alive in the dangerous plains before you.
