1. Longsword (Rare/Epic)

Best Short-Ranged LEGO Fortnite Weapon

In the early stages of the game, you can use the base crafting bench to forge a Shortsword. As you progress and upgrade the bench to a higher rarity, the ability to craft Longswords with devastating damage becomes available. When it comes to close-quarters combat in LEGO Fortnite, the Longsword is your ultimate weapon of choice.

Renowned as one of the top-tier arms, Longsword’s Epic (Purple) variant deals a formidable 9 damage. Unlike crossbows, Longsword eliminates the need for ammo, although vigilance is required to manage their durability effectively. You can combine your Doge ability with the Longsword to skillfully evade enemy attacks and strike them from behind for a tactical advantage.

For crafting the Epic Longsword, you will need an Epic Crafting Bench and 12 Iron bars.

2. Recurve Crossbow (Epic)

You can unlock ranged combat by upgrading your Crafting Bench to craft the formidable Recurve Crossbow in LEGO Fortnite. The Recurve Crossbow stands out as one of the best weapons in LEGO Fortnite, offering the element of surprise to catch enemies off guard. You can chip away some health off your enemies and gain a strategic advantage by delivering precise shots from a distance.

As your inaugural long-range weapon, it proves highly effective in targeting enemies from a distance. The Epic (Purple) variant deals an impressive 14 damage per shot. Also, don’t forget to craft extra arrows to ensure a well-stocked arsenal for all the enemies awaiting you on your adventures beyond the village.

For crafting the Epic Resurve Crossbow, you will need 8 Frostpine Rods, 3 Irons bars, 1 Drawstring, and an Epic Crafting Bench.

3. Dynamite

Best LEGO Fortnite Weapon For Attacking Multiple Enemies

Despite being commonly found in early-game chests, Dynamite earns a well-deserved mention among the best weapons in LEGO Fortnite. Its superiority lies not just in dealing a substantial 16 damage per hit but also in its ability to strike multiple targets simultaneously.

Moreover, Dynamite possesses the unique characteristic of having no durability concerns. However, it comes with a finite number of uses. Once used, the item exits your inventory. An added advantage is the Dynamite’s fuse. When confronted by a group of approaching enemies, ignite the fuse, wait briefly, and then deploy it to neutralize them swiftly.

For crafting the Epic Dynamite, you will need an Epic Crafting Bench, 3 Blast Powder, and 3 Knotwood Rods.

My Thoughts

LEGO Fortnite has added a nice Minecraft-esque touch to the battle royale it is known for. The weapons feature a rarity system similar to the original Fortnite. In my experience of exploring the map, the weapons mentioned above at their max rarity (Epic) seemed to work quite well for me. In my opinion, Longsword is the best weapon to use in LEGO Fortnite, as it gives you a decent close-range advantage.

However, like always, it is advised that you give all the weapons a try to find out which are worth trading your hard-earned materials for.
