LEGO Fortnite: How to Get the Blast Core

LEGO Fortnite has many materials to find and craft with, including the Blast Core. Here is what it is and where it is located.

The new LEGO mode in Fortnite is taking the world by storm and is shaping up to be a serious competitor in the survival crafting genre. As with other titles in the group, crafting materials are essential. One such essential material is the Blast Core. Unfortunately, for some it can be tricky to find. If you’ve been struggling to get it, don’t worry. We’re here to help. Below, we’ve explained how to find the Blast Core and what it is used for.

Where Can the Blast Core Be Found in Lego Fortnite?

Blast Cores can be found by defeating a Blaster enemy in a Lava Cave located in Desert Biome locations. Once players take down a Blaster, the material will be dropped by the enemy to be picked up.

The Blasters look like tiny clusters of rocks that become active when a player gets near it. However, after the enemy becomes aggressive, it must be taken down quickly before it detonates, damaging the player. It is highly recommended you equip a long-range weapon such as a crossbow to ensure you defeat the Blaster from a safe distance. However, if you prefer a melee approach, make sure the weapon is of a high rarity type to make sure it is taken down much faster and cannot explode.

What Are Blast Cores Used For in LEGO Fortnite?

Blast cores are the main ingredient in making a metal smelter in LEGO Fortnite, and 15 are needed as part of the recipe. The metal smelter is a machine that players can build and install in their village. It not only increases the village level but also allows for better building choices. Players place different ores into the smelter, which are then processed and smelted into metal bars for the player to use as crafting materials.

The metal smelter can help create different tools and weapons of the metal variety. This is incredibly useful as their durability is much higher, allowing for more uses before breaking. Also, the metal versions of weapons do more damage. This is vital for players worried about being killed while on an excursion or defending their village from skeletons and other monsters at night.

The Blast Core is a very useful component and something players need to make sure to be on the lookout for when exploring. Anyone interested in more guides on LEGO Fortnite or anything Fortnite-related can check out our Games Hub for more details.
