How to Break Cactus in LEGO Fortnite

LEGO Fortnite’s Dry Valley biome is littered with important resources for players to harvest, including Cactus.

The desert biome in LEGO Fortnite is unforgiving, but it houses many resources players need to craft more advanced items in the game. The Cactus is a recognizable plant, being an upright, green, prickly tree. However, just going up to it with any tool will not harvest it, so here are all the details you need to know about breaking and harvesting Cactus plants in LEGO Fortnite.

How to Break Cactus in LEGO Fortnite

Cactus can be broken down in LEGO Fortnite by using a Rare Forest Axe or higher to chop it down. The rarity of tools in LEGO Fortnite makes a big difference, even down to harvesting plants and trees for resources. To acquire a Rare Forest Axe, players must first upgrade their Crafting Bench to the Rare version (indicated by Blue) to start building Rare weapons and tools. The following components are needed to ensure the Crafting Bench is up to Rare level:

  • 12x Knotroot Rods
    • Turn Knotroot into Knotroot Rods through the Lumber Mill.
  • 15x Marble Slabs
    • Turn Marble into Marble Slabs by placing them into the Stone Breaker.
  • 6x Sand Claws
  • 3x Sand Shells
    • Can be acquired by defeating Rollers in the Shores or Dry Valley

Once players have the necessary requirements to level up the Crafting Bench and it is upgraded to Rare, they can then proceed to craft the Rare Forest Axe by gathering the following resources:

Once all the necessary resources have been acquired, players can craft the Rare Axe and head to the Dry Valley to destroy Cactus.
