LEGO Fortnite is a bit of a bizarre mash-up, but one that I am surprised we didn’t see sooner. In this blocky, survival-based take on the battle royale, players will be farming, crafting, and exploring as they head on this adventure.

Crafting in this survival-crafting game means collecting LEGO bricks and putting them all together, but you’ll also need to know which recipes to follow before building the most impressive base. If you’re hoping to do some cooking or want to eventually host friends around the campfire at night, you will need to know how to build a campfire in LEGO Fortnite first.

To make a campfire in LEGO Fortnite, you don’t actually need to do too much. First things first, you’ll want to craft an Axe and acquire three pieces of wood using it. You can also, very easily, pick up three pieces of wood from the ground instead.

Once you have the wood required, all you need to do is open up your building menu using ‘Q’ on PC. Under ‘Utility’, you’ll see the Campfire option. Select the Campfire and choose somewhere to place it.
