Crafting is a gameplay mechanic in Fortnite: Battle Royale, introduced in Chapter 2: Season 6. It is a new way to upgrade weapons, using gathered crafting resources, after the removal of Upgrade Benches, and a reduced focus on Characters.

Please note that weaponry can still be upgraded by talking to Characters for Bars. This will not convert the weapon into a different version, but will simply just increase the rarity.

Functionality

Crafting is a method of obtaining higher rarity weapons by changing them into Primal Versions, or into standard weaponry, which has been present throughout past seasons.

Crafting does not require an object to interact with, rather it is done inside the players inventory using acquired resources.

Upgrading

Currently, only Makeshift Weaponry, as well as the Mechanical Bow, can be upgraded into another weapon. Makeshift weaponry is upgraded into its similar Primal version using Animal Bones. 2, 4 or 6 Animal Bones can be used to advance a weapon into its Primal Version, with lower rarities requiring the least bones, and vice versa. Some weapons, such as the Makeshift Revolver, will change to a different weapon completely, upon upgrading using Animal Bones.

Makeshift weaponry can also be upgraded into standard weaponry using Mechanical Parts. 2, 4 or 6 Mechanical Parts can be used to advance a weapon into its Standard Version, with lower rarities requiring the least bones, and vice versa.

Bows can be upgraded from Rare to Epic, alongside 1 of 4 special modifiers, using extra items to upgrade them.

Regular weaponry and Primal weaponry cannot be upgraded. Weapons may only be upgraded once per use.

List of Resources

Below are a list of Resources that can be used to craft items. Animal Bones, Stink Sacs and Mechanical Parts do not take up inventory space.
