If you want to keep upgrading your Crafting Bench in LEGO Fortnite, you must find some Sand Claws.

Getting your first Crafting Bench upgrade is as simple as collecting a few Shells and Planks. But when it comes to upgrading it a second time, from Uncommon to Rare, you’ll have more of an issue.

Here’s where to find Sand Claws in LEGO Fortnite and unlock the ability to upgrade your tools once again.

Where to Get Sand Claws

To get Sand Claws in LEGO Fortnite, you must defeat Wolves that live in the desert section of the map.

These more powerful Wolves look slightly different from their Grasslands counterparts, and each one will drop 4 Sand Claws upon being defeated.

You’ll need to gear up heavily and make your way to the sandy biome of the map. Then it’s as simple as listening out for growling sounds to help you locate the vicious canines.

Each player’s environment is randomly generated, so we can’t give you exact directions, but you’ll be able to spot a desert at a distance thanks to an abundance of yellow sand and a lack of vegetation.

It’ll even appear on the game’s map when you’re close enough or when you’ve been in that area previously.

In the desert, you’ll be able to encounter stronger Wolves than those in the Grasslands biome. They’ll take more damage and hit much harder, but they still use the same pounce and bite attacks as their brethren.

How to Beat Desert Wolves

Come Equipped

When facing off against a desert Wolf, be sure to come prepared with proper weaponry, such as Uncommon-tier or higher Longswords and Recurve Crossbows.

Dodging the Wolf attacks is relatively easy – thankfully, the creature only attacks directly in front of itself. However, you could also use a shield to protect yourself if you have one.

We also advise bringing food that boosts your total heart count, to avoid getting one-shot by the Wolves.

Not only do these enemies have more health than those in the beginner area, but they deal a lot more damage with each attack.

Heat Protection Advised

In the desert area, it helps to bring some form of heat protection, whether that’s in the form of a Charm or food, else you’ll slowly take damage due to high temperatures.

This isn’t exceptionally hard to deal with, as you can heal simply by eating, but it’s something that would be preferable to avoid if possible.

Bring Help

Don’t forget that you can bring AI companions with you into battle, by talking to someone in your village and asking them to join you in your adventure.

They don’t even have to be a resident of your village – you can ask characters who are visiting, in order to avoid impacting other character’s jobs.

Not only can AI deal some extra damage in a fight, but they can also take some of the attention off you, giving you a chance to heal when needed.

One at a Time, Please

Finally, be sure to engage Wolves one at a time to avoid getting overwhelmed. One of these stronger enemies is enough of a handful, the last thing you want is them calling in the pack.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to rake in the Sand Claws in no time and give your LEGO Fortnite Crafting Bench a second upgrade.
