To upgrade your Village Level you will need ingredients including one found in Caves randomly found across the map in LEGO Fortnite, part of the following requirements:

  • Increase your Village Rating
  • Knotroot x10
  • Plank x15
  • Granite x25

Knotroot is found specifically in Caves, but the rest of the upgraded ingredients are a breeze. You can make Planks once you have a Lumber Mill utility station, and granite is the most common rock resource you’ll find early in the game.

When checking your Village Square, look at the meter above. This is your Village Rating, a different scale than the levels in LEGO Fortnite. This will rise as you add more things like crafting utility stations, housing, walls, and furniture to your village. Running out of supplies and ideas, I managed to get my Village Rating to 4 by finally just adding another grill when I couldn’t craft anything else.

Open the Village Hub menu, and if you hit ‘RB’ or ‘R1’ or ‘R’ you’ll see whether you can upgrade your village. If you have all the resources such as those listed above, you’re in the clear.
