That being said, as the seasons have progressed, crafting recipes have changed. Despite the changes in the recipes, the spawn rate of these crafting materials have been at an all time high.

Here is a full list of all the crafting recipes in Fortnite Season 8.

Now that we have a fair idea of all the crafting recipes in Fortnite Season 8, how do we craft a weapon?

How to craft weapons

Crafting weapons is very simple. All you need to do is head over to your inventory and hover over the weapon you want to craft.

Hovering over the weapon will show you the crafting recipe itself. And it will also let you know if you have all the necessary items in order to craft the said weapon.

If you have all the necessary parts, all you need to do is click on the craft button and you're good to go.

Do remember, the entire crafting process takes around 3-4 seconds to complete, so you're completely vulnerable during that time.

In order to protect yourself during this time, consider building a box around you. Or you could also craft weapons within the safety of a nearby building.

Good luck!
