LEGO Fortnite has swords, crossbows, and more. But does the game mode include guns? Here’s the answer.

The LEGO Fortnite game mode is now live alongside a bunch of Chapter 5 Season 1 activities. Since LEGO Fortnite is a separate game mode from Battle Royale and Zero Build, it has differences in terms of appearance and more. So are there any real guns in LEGO Fortnite?

How to craft weapons in LEGO Fortnite

To craft some weapons in LEGO Fortnite, you must first get a Crafting Bench. This item requires three Wood and five Granite. Next, open the building menu, visit the "Utility" option, and select "Crafting Bench." Press the "Build" button to create and place it down.

Once you have a Crafting Bench, you can interact with it to bring up the crafting menu. This area lets you create weapons to duke it out against enemies. The Crafting Bench also lets you gear up with some tools to gather even more resources.

Don't forget to upgrade the Crafting Bench. To do this, gather eight Planks and three Shells. This updates it to the uncommon rarity.
