Iron, an Epic-rarity resource in LEGO Fortnite, is a vital component for crafting the most powerful weapons and robust tools currently available in the game. As part of the final tier of items, gathering enough Iron may require a bit of effort, but armed with the right knowledge and preparation, you’ll soon be stockpiling more than you need! In this guide, let’s dive into where to find Iron, how to efficiently farm it, and the process of crafting Iron Bars in LEGO Fortnite.
How to Get Iron in LEGO Fortnite
Iron can be discovered in Ice Caves, a specific cave type situated in the Frostlands biome. Keep an eye out for these caves amid the snow and ice, and you’ll find the distinct rock formations marking their entrances. You’ll need an Epic (Purple) Pickaxe to extract the metal from the ore nodes within these caves.
Check out the screenshot above to see how an Iron ore node looks. These nodes are predominantly on the walls and ceilings of the caves, so ensure you bring some wood to craft stairs and reach those elevated spots.
Ensure your survival in the icy biome by crafting and equipping anti-cold Inner Fire Charms and preparing some Spicy Burgers before your iron-gathering venture. These items provide resistance to the extreme cold in these caves, which is essential for surviving in this icy biome. Don’t forget the Torch – the caves can be quite dark!
Once you’ve explored one cave, you can continue your quest in the Frostlands or return to your base to process the Iron into Iron Bars using a Metal Smelter. Remember, just like Copper, you’ll need to add some Brightcore to the mix:
