Lego Fortnite: How to upgrade to a Rare Axe

The first thing you need to do is upgrade your Crafting Bench to tier 3. To do so, you’ll need to locate the desert in Lego Fortnite. Once you’re in this biome, look for Rough Amber throughout the desert. It should be large orange-tinted rocks. Make sure you collect around 10 of these resources. They’re slightly less common than granite, but you should find one without much issue. 

Next, build a gem cutter. This is a workshop you’ll need to break down your Rough Amber. If you don’t have one, simply make one by finding the right resources. Place the 10 Rough Amber in the cutter and wait for it to produce 10 Cut Amber

You’ll also need Knotroot, which can be easily found by chopping down a tree. Make sure you craft the normal Forest Axe to knock down those trees. To break that down as you did with the Cut Amber, create a Lumber Mill and put the wood through it. Select Knotroot, and wait for it to process the item

Crafting the Rare Axe

Now that you have all the resources needed for the upgrade, head to the Crafting Bench. Interact with the bench, on top where it says Crafting Recipes, and navigate to the left of it to the Bench Upgrade. From here, you’ll enhance your bench with more recipes. When you go back to the Crafting Recipes option, you should see more tools ready to be made if you have the resources. To create the Rare Axe, simply press on the blue Forest Axe

The good thing about the Rare Forest Axe is that you can break down things like Catcus to get ever rarer Flexwood
