You will be able to craft the Recurve Crossbow after upgrading your Crafting Bench. This is the first ranged weapon you’ll get in the game and it’s quite effective from long range. The Recurve Crossbow is a great weapon to use to defeat Brute, as it allows you to keep distance from it and attack it from afar.

The Epic (Purple) variant of the crossbow deals 14 damage per shot, but you can only get it by upgrading your Crafting Bench to an Epic rarity.

What makes the Recurve Crossbow one of the best weapons in LEGO Fortnite is its ability to surprise your enemies and get a head start by hitting them a few times from a distance. However, make sure to always craft extra Arrows in case you intend to leave your village and explore the vast world.

Dynamite is currently the best weapon in LEGO Fortnite. The explosive weapon is quite common, and you’ll likely find it in chests early in the game. It’s the best weapon not only because it deals 16 damage per hit, but because it is capable of hitting multiple targets at once.

Furthermore, the Dynamite has a fuse you can use to your advantage. If a group of enemies is getting closer to you, you can ignite the fuse, wait for a few seconds, and then throw it at your enemies to take them down immediately.

Unlike the other weapons on this list, Dynamite has no durability. However, it has multiple charges, and once you run out of them, the item will disappear from your inventory.
