No, there is no way for players to move placed items in LEGO Fortnite without destroying them. This includes chests, beds, crafting tables, walls, roofs, Village Squares, and anything else you place down from the build menu.

How Do You Move Builds in LEGO Fortnite?

In order to move a build in LEGO Fortnite, you must destroy it. You can do this with your fist or with a tool. Stone structures will break faster with a pickaxe, and wood structures break faster with an axe.

Sadly, breaking an object won’t cause that object to drop. Instead, the components that went into making that object will drop, forcing players to rebuild the object out of raw materials. In our experience, the destroyed object will drop the same number of materials it requires to make, so there’s no need to fear tearing down buildings as you won’t lose any resources.

How to Destroy Builds Fast in LEGO Fortnite

The worst part of remodeling in LEGO Fortnite is how long it takes to tear down placed objects. Regardless of the tool you use to break down items, it can take a painfully long time to destroy each piece of furniture by hand.

Luckily, LEGO Fortnite has dynamite. This powerful explosive is crafted using Blast Powder. Admittedly, we haven’t found a reliable way to farm Blast Powder just yet other than eliminating hostile NPCs. That said, Dynamite and Boom Barrels are the quickest way to tear down large builds or clear out rooms.

Best Places to Farm Blast Powder

We have a couple key locations that we like to go to for farming Blast Powder in LEGO Fortnite: The Shores, or Drylands. Here’s how to tackle both locations.

The Shores

The Shores are essentially all of the beaches you’ll find in LEGO Fortnite. The best way to farm in The Shores is to wait until nightfall, then hunt down both cowboy and pirate skeletons that spawn. They have high drop rates of Blast Powder and you’ll get plenty in no time.


Drylands is the desert biome. The process for farming here is the same as The Shores: wait until night, then hunt down pirate and cowboy skeletons. Keep in mind that this is the desert, so you should get some heat-resistance items. You can drink Snowberry shakes and eat Snowberries to give you heat-resistance status effects. Look for charms with these protections as well.

Speaking of unbearable heat, you’re probably gonna go to the desert many times in LEGO Fortnite. You’ll need to be well-prepared and know how to make the appropriate heat-resistance items ahead of time. Check out our LEGO Fortnite guides for more tips and tricks.
