LEGO Fortnite vehicle controls: What are the red one, green two, and blue three?

Let's hit turbo.

We all need a little push every once in a while, especially if we are propelled by a raging fire. What do the colored buttons do when controlling a LEGO Fortnite vehicle?

What are the Red, Green, and Blue numbered buttons in LEGO Fortnite?

The new vehicle content in LEGO Fortnite brings a whole lot of possibilities for your world and survival. There are a lot of new items, parts, and, of course, vehicle templates you can craft to get you from point A to point B in no time. However, besides the usual button layout that we can see on the bottom right corner of the screen when hopping on one of these vehicles, there are three colored buttons: a red one, a green two, and a blue three. What are these?

Well, one of the new additions included in the Mechanical Mayhem update is the inclusion of the Wrench. This tool will allow you to assign Thrusters to a specific Channel that can be connected to different Switches. This allows a single construct vehicle or airship to use only a group of Thrusters at a time by activating the specific Switch assigned to the same Thruster Channel. These three Channels are the red one, the green two, and the blue three we see on the screen. With that said, this changes a bit with ground vehicles.

How to use Channels and Thrusters with vehicles in LEGO Fortnite

The first thing you need to do is to add some Thrusters to your vehicles. Think of them as a speed boost for your construct – and also some cinematic eye candy. The next thing you need to do is craft your Wrench. You need to first collect a Wooden Rod from a Lumber Mill to unlock its recipe and then craft it on a Crafting Bench by using three Wooden Rods and a Cord.

Equip the Wrench and then interact with your Thrusters and assign them to a specific Channel. On a flying vehicle, you will then have to interact with Switches and assign them to the Channels those Thrusters are connected to, but in the case of the new ground vehicles, you only need to assign them to a specific channel.

Hop on to the driver’s seat and then click on the buttons assigned to each colored button. The Thrusters assigned to said Channel will activate automatically. Now, I recommend thinking about the Thruster positioning and angle since these will have some trouble pushing the vehicle when you are on slopes or bumpy ground.

If done correctly, your Thrusters will push your vehicle, granting a nice speed bonus to your creation. As said above, I believe the optimal use of Thrusters with vehicles is by making custom vehicles since the base ones will have a hard time incorporating these. That’s a death sentence for me because building is not a skill I have, so maybe you’ll have a much better time than me with these constructs.
