How to Survive the Cold and Avoid Freezing in LEGO Fortnite

Building a campfire and crafting torches will help keep you warm during your first few nights in LEGO Fortnite. From here, going to the Dry Valley desert biome and looking for spicy peppers is your best bet since you can eat them to gain temporary cold resistance.

How to Build a Campfire

Building a campfire is one of the first things you’ll do when you start LEGO Fortnite, as it only requires three wood to make. To create one, gather some wood from nearby trees, head into your build menu, and select the campfire before placing it anywhere on the ground. The campfire provides warmth in a short radius, and you can place multiple around the map for extra cold resistance.

How to Make a Torch

The next item you can make is a torch, which you can make at a crafting bench using three wood and five vines. Vines are another early-game resource you can collect from bushes. Bring these items to your crafting bench to make three torches, which you can carry around for a portable source of warmth.

How to Find Spicy Peppers

Spicy peppers are another reliable method of gaining cold resistance. There are two main ways to get spicy peppers: find them in the Dry Valley desert or loot some from chests.

The first method is by searching the Dry Valley. While every seed has a slightly different spawn location for the desert, you’ll often spot it connected to Grasslands biomes. Here, you can find spicy pepper bushes scattered around, which you can harvest to get some of this item.

Alternatively, if you had a similar spawn that I did and are mostly surrounded by snowy biomes, you can look around for abandoned towers that spawn chests. Occasionally, these chests have spicy peppers and other valuable resources inside, which you can take and use to venture through the cold in hopes of finding a desert somewhere.

Once you’ve gotten your hands on some spicy peppers, you can either eat them immediately for a two-minute cold resistance boost or cook them into food for increased buffs.

Before you begin your next LEGO adventure, you’ll need some tools to keep you safe against danger. Be sure to check out how to make weapons in LEGO Fortnite, or click the tag below to browse our growing article list.
