Epic Games is bringing Fortnite into survival mode by tasking players to craft weapons in Chapter 2, Season 6.
With the collapse of reality on Fortnite Island as we know it, players are grasping at anything they can to stay afloat. The consequences of containing Zero Point have cascaded across the landscape—turning the once industrial area back to its untouched wilderness roots. Now, players will need to find a way to craft their own weapons in the wake of disaster. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
How to Craft Fortnite Weapons in Chapter 2 Season 6
This is the first time fans will see crafting capabilities of this magnitude in Fortnite. The change is so prominent that Epic has developed a specialized Crafting tab off players' inventory. We've broken down the steps to taking advantage of that tab below:
- Open your inventory.
- Navigate to the "Crafting" tab on the pop-up menu.
- There should be a list of items that can be made within this tab. Select the one you want to focus on.
- Complete the steps listed to craft it—ranging from taking down animals to gathering resources.
- Return to the item listing after obtaining all components to craft it.
Some players report that crafting will be featured in every weekly challenge throughout the "Primal" theme this season—thanks to a task leak by Fortnite Twitter informant iFireMonkey.
