Fortnite season 7 has officially ditched Primal and makeshift weapons in favor of something more...alien.
With the season 7 launch has come an updated crafting system. There's plenty to discover this time around, so read on for every crafting recipe we know, weapon types, and more.
How to craft items in Fortnite
While there's some simple tutorial messages, Fortnite doesn't do a great job of fully explaining things.
To craft an item or weapon in Fortnite, simply hit "Tab" on your keyboard (up on the D-pad) and it will open up a submenu. It'll open the inventory menu, but you can click on the "crafting" tab to open up the right menu.
From here, all you need to do is select which weapon you currently have that you want to upgrade. You'll see what options you have, different stat comparisons, and what crafting materials you need to collect before you can upgrade. Thankfully, you can do this anywhere on the map.
How to get crafting materials
Crafting materials come from the animals and machinery found around the map. You'll often need more than one of an item in order to craft or upgrade something.
Animal bones are exactly what they sound like, collected from the bodies of the wolves, boars, and chickens scattered around the map.
Mechanical parts are bits of metal gathered by destroying mechanical objects, like cars, tractors, trucks, and forklifts.
