Every item in LEGO Fortnite has its use, with some being more useful than others. One such item is the Brute Scale, a vital component that players will need to use to craft some of the more helpful late game items. However, for the uninitiated, getting your hands on one can be tricky. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered. Below, we explain exactly how to acquire Brute Scales in LEGO Fortnite and what they are.
Brute Scales are obtainable in LEGO Fortnite by killing a Brute enemy and looting the Scale they drop upon being defeated. You can find normal Brute enemies in the Shores biome, and these will drop regular Brute Scales. You can easily recognize the Shore biome as it borders the Grasslands region and resembles different beaches littered with palm trees.
Different types of Brute enemies in different biomes drop different types of Scales. When acquiring Sand Brute Scales, the enemy is located in the Dry Valley region. In terms of the Frost Brute Scales, players must defeat the vicious Brutes that inhabit the snowy region of the Frostlands. If you don’t want to fight a Brute to get scales, as you can also find them by looting different treasure chests that are littered throughout the cave systems in the Dry Valley biome.
As the Brutes are a powerful enemy, they cannot be taken head-on with basic weapons. It is best to build up your damage resistance by crafting Health Charms that give you additional hearts. It is also worth crafting Longswords as they deal more damage and are more durable. Additionally, having a long-range weapon such as a Crossbow is advantageous as it will give you the benefit of dealing damage to Brutes without being in range of their attacks.
