How To Get Shells In Lego Fortnite?

Shells are a crucial crafting ingredient needed for few important upgrades in the early game!

Struggling to get your hands on shells in Lego Fortnite? Well, I must admit that collecting shells can be a little tedious since Rollers are not that easily found. You can’t skip this resource either because it’s needed for some major upgrades and crafting recipes in the early game. However, if you know the right tricks to spot and beat a roller you’ll have multiple shells in no time!

Key Takeaways
  • Shell is an important crafting ingredient needed to upgrade and make multiple items in Lego Fortnite.
  • Most prominently, players are required to have 3 Shells to upgrade the crafting bench.
  • Shells can be found by beating the Roller enemy found in Grasslands.
  • Apart from the crafting bench, shells can also be used to craft a Health Charm.

How To Find Shells?

Finding shells may sound easy but it’s one of the first hurdles you might face in your all-new Lego world. Shells can be acquired by finding and beating Rollers.

  • This creature type is known to bury itself in the ground, camouflaging itself as a plant.
  • However, once you get close to it, the Roller will pop out and (you guessed it!) roll towards you.
  • Defeating the Roller is easy, as long as you have a steady hand on the dodging mechanism in Lego Fortnite.

Finding a Roller can be a challenging task. Rollers have multiple variants in the game which is something I struggled with during my initial hours in the game. For “Shells” you need to locate rollers present in the Grasslands biome. Take them down and you’ll obtain a single Shell.

Note: Rollers found in Deserts and Beaches will drop Sand Shells, which is a different resource and can not be used to upgrade the crafting bench in Lego Fortnite.

Uses Of Shells

Shells generally have multiple uses. It’s used in plenty of crafting recipes and upgrades. However, upgrading the crafting bench (you’ll need 3x Shells) is the most important use of shells in the game. Without it, you won’t be able to progress your village.

Apart from that, players can also use Shells you craft Health Charms, which is yet another crucial item that I used a lot in the early game!

That’s all you need to know about Shells in the new Lego sandbox world! As you progress your game and upgrade your village you will find even more uses of the Shells. However, by that time I’m quite sure you’d have all your resources sorted it!
