Upgrade Crafting Bench to Rare in LEGO Fortnite
In order to upgrade your crafting bench to rare in LEGO Fortnite, you’ll need the following:
- Knotroot Rod x12
- Marble Slab x15
- Sand Claw x6
- Sand Shell x3
To get Knotroot and Marble, you’ll need to find a cave. You’ll also need an uncommon forest axe and an uncommon pickaxe to harvest the Knotroot and Marble.
The Knotroot can be obtained by axing away at these objects in caves:
And you’ll need to pickaxe away at the below objects in caves to get yourself some Marble:
You need to put the Knotwood you collect into a lumber mill to create the Knotwood rods. The Marble will need to be placed into a stone breaker to create the marble slab.
Head over to the desert/dry area on the LEGO Fortnite map and destroy the Sand Wolves. Once you eliminate a Sand Wolf, they’ll likely drop a Sand Claw.
The Sand Shells can be obtained by eliminating the Sand Crabs in the desert/dry area.
Once you obtain everything listed above, you need to go to the “bench upgrade” tab and press the upgrade button.
How to Upgrade Crafting Bench to Epic in LEGO Fortnite
For now, upgrading your crafting bench to Epic is the last upgrade until Epic Games adds more content and more levels to upgrade your crafting bench.
However, upgrading your crafting bench to Epic in LEGO Fortnite can be quite difficult due to the materials you need.
You’ll need the below materials to upgrade your crafting bench to Epic:
To get copper bars, you’ll need to explore a desert cave which can be found in the dry region of the map.
Copper, Bright, Obsidian, and Blast ores can be found in these desert caves in LEGO Fortnite.
The copper orders are a brown color and look very shiny as seen below:
They’re usually found deeper in the cave, so you’ll likely have a lot of roaming to do in order to find them.
Obsidian Ore is dark, a purple color, and isn’t hard to miss. Like copper, Obisidian is usually found deeper in the desert caves.
You’ll also need Brightcores to upgrade your crafting bench to Epic which are also found in the desert caves and look like this:
Blast Cores are only obtained by defeating specific enemies walking around in the desert caves. They look like a small volcano.
You can either destroy them yourself or wait for them to explode in order to get the blast cores.
You need all of the above to upgrade your crafting bench to epic in LEGO Fortnite as you need to create a Metal Smelter.
Inside of the Metal Smelter, you’re going to use Brightcore and copper to create copper bars.
The obsidian can be thrown into a stone crusher to create Obsidian slabs.
For all of the above, you’ll need a rare pickaxe to get the above ores, which requires 3 sand claws and 3 flexwood rods.
The final part, you’ll need a Brute Scale which can only be obtained from a Brute monster. Brutes can only be found on grasslands.
You’ll need to defeat a brute in the grasslands in order to get the scale.
Once you’ve done all of the above, you can upgrade your crafting bench to Epic rarity.
