Fortnite Season 7 has introduced a new aspect of weapon crafting that requires players to find Nuts and Bolts from across the map.
After the revelation of Makeshift weapons in Season 6, Fortnite Season 7 has limited the option of crafting to a few weapons in the game. However, before getting to the crafting section, players will first need to collect both, a suitable weapon as well as Nuts and Bolts.
How to get Nuts and Bolts in Fortnite Season 7
There are a variety of possible methods using which players can find Nuts and Bolts on the island.
These methods include:
- Nuts and Bolts can be found inside Red Toolboxes across the map;
- Players can also purchase Nuts and Bolts from the Rick Sanchez NPC situated towards the west of Weeping Woods;
- Nuts and Bolts can also be obtained as loot by eliminating other players;
- Nuts and Bolts can spawn as floor loot in I.O. Bases.
- Shooting at UFOs can drop Nuts and Bolts on rare occasions.
Weapons suitable for crafting using Nuts and Bolts
At the release of Fortnite Season 7, there are four weapons that can be crafted using Nuts and Bolts.
These weapons are:
- Lever Action Shotgun
- Rapid Fire SMG.
How to craft weapons in Fortnite Season 7
Once the player has managed to find one of the suitable weapons as well as a set of Nuts and Bolts, they can easily upgrade the weapon from their inventory.
The player needs to head over to the crafting tab inside their inventory and select the weapon that they wish to upgrade. Once selected, the player can simply click on the "Craft" button to upgrade the weapon.
However, players should note that finding Nuts and Bolts in Fortnite Season 7 is a fairly difficult task as the resource is not commonly available on the map. Considering the spawn rate of Nuts and Bolts on the island, players should consider themselves lucky if they manage to find more than one set of Nuts and Bolts in a single game.
Finally, once players have managed to craft three weapons using nuts and bolts, they'll be awarded 30,000 XP for completing the Fortnite Season 7 Week 3 quest.
