How to upgrade your Village in LEGO Fortnite

It’s time to upgrade that village in LEGO Fortnite: Here’s how and why you might be struggling.

In LEGO Fortnite, once you place down a Village Square, you can start to develop a Village that will automatically gather resources, attract Villagers, protect you, and otherwise make playing through LEGO Fortnite much better. But you’ll also need to upgrade your Village in order to attract new Villagers and expand. Here’s how to upgrade your Village in LEGO Fortnite.

How to upgrade the Village in LEGO Fortnite

  1. Go to the Village Square and interact to bring up the Village Upgrades menu.
  2. Select the second tab at the top of the menu to see your current level and requirements to upgrade.
  3. Add to your village and obtain specific resources to meet requirements.
  4. Select upgrade village once requirements are met.

As you get higher and higher level with your Village, you’ll need more difficult to obtain items to level up. This is where items like Knotroot, and other hard-to-get materials will become useful. Luckily, for Knotroot, we have a handy guide.

If you’re struggling to recruit Villagers, it’s usually to do with your Village level. Make sure you’re at the required level, and have used all your upgrade slots and filled all requirements. Villagers will also need beds, and some later level villagers will have specific buildings and workbenches they’ll need before they’ll join your village. Overall, just check the upgrade village requirements before giving up!
