LEGO Fortnite is an open-world crafting game within the battle royale title, and one of the most essential items to get are the starter tools.

Tools in LEGO Fortnite will speed up the process of collecting materials. Additionally, with a starter sword, you can deal more damage to those trying to attack you or kill friendly creatures to obtain food!

So, let’s dive into how to craft each of the starter tools in LEGO Fortnite so you can begin your very own adventure.

How to Craft Starter Tools

To begin crafting starter tools in LEGO Fortnite, you must first have a Crafting Bench for the Axe and Pickaxe and a Lumber Mill for the Shovel and Sword.

Below, we have detailed how to build both of these Utilities:

Crafting Bench

  • Collect 3 Wood and 5 Granite
    • This is done by finding the resources lying on the ground or punching smaller objects such as bushes or stones.
  • Open the Build menu
    • PlayStation: Circle
    • Xbox: B
    • PC: Q
  • Select Crafting Bench, and place it on the ground
    • It is recommended to place it indoors as if it rains, you will not have access to it

    • This is accomplished by locating resources on the ground or punching smaller objects like bushes or stones. Additionally, with your Crafting Bench, you can use your Pickaxe or Axe to take down larger structures.
  2. Open the Build menu
    • PlayStation: Circle
    • Xbox: B
