In LEGO Fortnite, upgrading your gear accordingly as you move forward is key, as each new rarity will increase both their durability as well as their efficiency in their respective field.
But how can you upgrade your tools in the mode? Here’s how to upgrade your tools in Fortnite.
How to Upgrade Tools in LEGO Fortnite
Although you cannot upgrade your tools after crafting them in the game, you can craft upgraded tools in LEGO Fortnite by using a Crafting Bench of equal rarity. For example, upgrading your bench to the Uncommon rarity will allow you to craft all Uncommon tools/weapons once their crafting recipes are discovered. You can discover the recipes for all tools by getting at least one of their ingredients.
How to Upgrade Your Crafting Bench
You can upgrade your crafting bench to a higher rarity by interacting with it and then selecting Bench Upgrade before pressing either Square, X, or E to expend the necessary resources to do it. Once you do that, your character will start working on the bench and after a few seconds, the upgrade will happen.
If you are like me and are a little anxious about wasting resources by upgrading a bench soon to be destroyed, don’t worry, since after destroying an Upgraded Crafting Bench of any rarity in LEGO Fortnite, you will be able to collect both its standard cost as well as all of the items used for its upgrades.
