How to craft a Mechanical Bow, a Mechanical Explosive Bow, and a Mechanical Shockwave Bow in Fortnite

Embrace the spirit of Robin Hood.

Crafting is a new element in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6, and you will need to embrace it for one of the Week 2 challenges. Players will need to make a Mechanical Bow, a Mechanical Explosive Bow, and a Mechanical Shockwave Bow. Each weapon consists of one part of the challenge, and you will need to make all three to pass it.

This will involve some looting, and some luck, so don’t get disheartened if it takes a while to get them all done.

Mechanical Bow

To make a Mechanical Bow, you will need a Makeshift Bow and 4 Mechanical Pieces. You can find Mechanical Pieces by breaking cars, trucks, trailers, and buses with your Harvest tool. Just open the Inventory when you have them all, then click on Crafting. Select the Makeshift Bow, and then select the option to turn it into a Mechanical Bow.

Explosive Mechanical Bow

When you have a Mechanical Bow, you can craft an Explosive Mechanical Bow in the crafting menu, but you will need to have 6 Grenades to do so. You can find Grenades in chests, or from ground loot.

Shockwave Mechanical Bow

The Shockwave Mechanical Bow is built in the same fashion, but you will need two Shockwave Grenades to build it, along with a Mechanical Bow.
