How to get every epic weapon in Lego Fortnite

Okay, this is Epic!

Crafting plays a huge role in Lego Fortnite. It allows you to protect yourself better and makes the game easier the longer you go. As you make your way in the world, you’ll stumble on deadlier creatures, so you’ll need strong gear to defend yourself.

You can do this by having an Epic Weapon, and we’ll show you how to get them in Lego Fortnite.

Lego Fortnite: How to get every Epic Weapon

The first thing to do in Lego Fortnite is upgrade the Crafting Table to Epic Level. When you do, you’ll get access to other recipes for weapons like the Rare Axe. Upgrading the crafting table is also good for progression because it can help you get resources like Flexwood.

Now that you’ve upgraded the Crafting Table, you will be able to create four Epic Weapons, they are:

  • Epic Shovel
  • Epic Longsword
  • Epic Recurve Bow
  • Epic Pickaxe

Each has its recipe, but don’t worry we’ll go over them.

How to craft the Epic Weapons

Since these Epic Weapons are a higher tier, they’ll need more resources to construct. On top of that, the resources required might be harder to find. I’ll put where to find them, however, note that since the world procedurally generates, the directions might not work but areas will be the places you want to look into.

  • To create an Epic Pickaxe, you’re going to need to Iron Bars. These bars are normally found in the snowy areas of the world. Once you have them, craft or use the Metal Smelter to create eight Obesidan Slabs and five Frostpine Rods. When these resources are created, you can head to the Crafting Table and make the Epic Pickaxe.
  • The Shovel is the easiest as you need eight Iron Bars to create. You don’t have to craft the bars, you can simply find them in the snow biomes of Lego Fortnite.
  • Crafting the Epic Recurve Bow is a little more complicated. You need to craft eight Frostpine Rods, three Iron Bars, and a single Drawstring. 
  • Making the Epic Longsword isn’t hard either, it just needs more leg work from you. To make one, you need to collect around 12 Iron Bars.

Adding Enhancements to your weapon

You can take things further with each of these weapons. This comes in the form of Enchantments or Essence. These add more buffs to the weapon you’re using. To apply them, you need to make an Essence Table. At the time of writing this, there are four, and each has a certain play style. Check them out below.

  • Essence of Durability – Makes your weapons last longer.
  • Essence of Health – Gives enemies a higher chance of dropping health items.
  • Essence of Damage – Your weapon is stronger with this buff.
  • Essence of Luck – Weapons have a higher chance of dropping extra resources.
