How To Craft And Upgrade Weapons In Fortnite Season 6


Fortnite Season 6 introduces a new crafting system to upgrade your weapons!


With the Primal theme spilling into the weaponry, players can grab weapons and upgrade them to whatever they want.

It's a nice way to get everyone on a more even footing rather than the luck of the draw or needing to speak to NPCs.

Here's how to craft weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6.

How To Craft Weapons In Fortnite

Weapons in Fortnite require items to craft them - similar to how upgrading worked in past seasons.

You can now craft what you want!

But, these items are more specific including things like animal bones, grenades and weapons that will create stronger weapons.

You will gain crafting materials from hunting wildlife, eliminating players, scrapping vehicles and purchasing it from NPCs.

You can use these materials to upgrade your Primal and Mechanical weapons.


Open up the crafting tab, which is located next to the Inventory tab, then you'll be able to craft weapons.

There's a total of 14 Primal and Mechanical weapons; this also includes a "Makeshift" category.
