There are a few different ways to build thruster-powered vehicles in LEGO Fortnite, but it’s not obvious how you can steer them at all. This guide will cover how controlling vehicles works and whether traditional steering is possible.

Can You Steer in LEGO Fortnite?

The short answer is yes, you can technically steer cars in LEGO Fortnite if you use some tricks with thrusters and activation switches. However, there is no traditional steering wheel that allows you to control vehicles like a standard car. Instead, you can only get two thrusters to push a car left or right with a specific setup.

When you build a car with a Dynamic Platform and wheels, it won’t automatically be able to steer. You can attempt to build fences in the front, place some additional activation switches on pillars on top of the fences, and then knock the pillars down. If you have a switch and thruster combo on top of the pillar, it will fall into the enclosed fences. This gives you a roundabout way to turn on the fallen thrusters by changing the main one on the car.

This only works for now because the pillar-based switches are registering above the switch on the Dynamic Platform. Even with this workaround though, you can only push the car left or right with small thrusters in LEGO Fortnite. A genuine steering wheel could appear in the game in the near future, so there’s always hope.

Building a train system is a more reliable way to have a car go forward without any worries about steering. Far more work is required with stacks of materials, but the end result is much better for traveling between biomes.

If you haven’t tried making a car in LEGO Fortnite yet, try crafting a vehicle yourself.
