How to make Vehicles in LEGO Fortnite

Vroom Vroom.

Vehicles are a way to get around faster in the vast world of LEGO Fortnite. As it is a quality-of-life tool, vehicles will require 20+ play hours to get the materials needed and while it is nice, they do not provide the most advanced controls. However, it still beats walking.

Read on to learn how you can make your own, too.

How to unlock Vehicle Parts in LEGO Fortnite

To unlock the Vehicle parts in the Toys section of the build menu you will first need to find a bunch of resources for them to appear:

  • The first and biggest one is Flexwood, a type of wood only found in the Desert biome that can only be harvested with a tier-three axe. Getting this material will unlock the Dynamic Foundation and Wheels schematics needed to make cars.
  • The next is Blast Powder, which will give you the chance to make thrusters needed to propel you forward. The last is Silk Fabric, which will require you to make a Loom to unlock. This is how you can get Balloons.

You will also need to have leveled up a village quite a fair bit for the toys to be available.

Making a Car and Boat is pretty simple. Here are the steps to do make a Car and a Boat in LEGO Fortnite:

  • Go to the Toys Tab within the build menu.
  • You will need to click on the Dynamic Foundation to use as a base.
  • Attach 4 wheels to the side of the base.
  • Add a Thruster on the back to propel it forward.
  • You also need to use an Activation Switch to activate the thrusters.

It’s worth mentioning that while it’s a fast way to move, the car and boat will only be able to move forward in one direction. There is no steering wheel or way to change direction, so line it up in a path without obstacles in front of you to make the most of it.

Tip: Do NOT destroy your Thrusters!

It’s also worth noting that once you destroy the Thrusters, you won’t get any of your resources back, so be sure to not waste any materials.

Just like with the car, you will need to use the Dynamic Foundation to make any type of flying structure. Using items on anything else just won’t float.

  1. Go into the Toys Tab in your build menu.
  2. Make a Dynamic Base.
  3. Grab four balloons from the menu and attach them to the structure.
  4. When you are up in the sky, use Thrusters if you want to fly in one direction, and like with cars and boats, once you destroy them they will be gone for good.
  5. You will also need an Activation Switch to activate the thrusters.
Tip: Don’t let your platform float without you!

Please make sure to stand on top of the structure BEFORE you attach the four balloons onto it or it will float away and you will lose everything.

As for getting down, you will need to manually destroy two of the balloons in separate corners to safely descend. Destroy more, and you might plummet to your death.
