Crafting is the ultimate goal of the game in LEGO Fortnite, whether it be crafting to build the village or for weapons to go explore the map. With so much to create, it can get hard to keep track of it all.

LEGO Fortnite is the newest sandbox addition to the Fortnite franchise, with mechanics reminiscent of Minecraft. The crafting opportunities are massive, with more crafting stations being unlocked as players discover more materials to work with. Each crafting station discovered is necessary to unlock another station later in the game, making it necessary to build all crafting stations. Here are all the crafting stations, how to make them, and what they are used for.
