LEGO Fortnite: How To Upgrade Crafting Bench To Rare And Epic


Upgrading your Crafting Bench in LEGO Fortnite allows you to access a wider array of tools and resources. But before you can upgrade a crafting bench you need to make one (if you already have one, skip to the bottom of the page for the upgrade section).

Building Your Crafting Bench

Before you can think about upgrading, you need to have a Crafting Bench. Here’s how you build one:

  1. Gather Resources: You’ll need to collect 3 Wood and 5 Granite. Wood can be obtained by destroying various objects, while Granite appears as small grey brick pieces scattered across the ground.
  2. Construct the Bench: Access the building menu (B on Xbox, Circle on PlayStation, or Q on PC), navigate to the Utility section, and select the Crafting Bench. If you have the required resources, finalize the placement by pressing the build button again.

A pro tip is to place your Crafting Bench under an existing structure or surround it with walls for protection​​.

How To Upgrade Crafting Bench With Required Materials For Each Level

The first upgrade to your Crafting Bench is to the Uncommon level. For this, you need:

  • 8 Planks: These are abundant and easily accessible.
  • 3 Shells: A bit more challenging, Shells are dropped by entities known as ‘Rollers.’ These enemies are hidden beneath the ground, particularly in the Grasslands. To defeat them, you need a sword and a shield. Rollers are lured by vines, and upon defeat, drop the Shells you need.

After gathering these materials, return to your Crafting Bench, click on the ‘Bench Upgrade’ tab, and select ‘Upgrade.’ This upgrade unlocks a new tier of items and buildings​​.

Upgrading to Rare Crafting Bench

The next level is the Rare Crafting Bench. The materials required for this upgrade are:

  • 12 Knotroot Rods
  • 15 Marble Slabs
  • 6 Sand Claws
  • 3 Sand Shells

These materials enable the upgrade to the Rare Crafting Bench, further expanding the range of tools and weapons you can create​​.

Upgrading to Epic Crafting Bench

Finally, to reach the pinnacle of Crafting Bench upgrades, the Epic tier, you will need:

  • 15 Copper Bars
  • 25 Obsidian Slabs
  • 1 Brute Scale

Collecting these ingredients allows you to upgrade your bench to the max, unlocking the strongest tools and weapons in the game​​​​, including the Epic Pickaxe that is used to mine Malachite.
