The vast world of LEGO Fortnite is astonishing. With numerous biomes, mountains, and caves, the exploration of the world can take a couple of days. However, the movement is quite an issue. If you want to explore the world on your feet, you will likely get bored in a few hours. Due to this, we suggest you craft a Glider.

Like in classic Battle Royale modes, a Glider in LEGO Fortnite allows you to travel distances in a short period. Not only should you use this item to travel quickly over the world, but it’s also useful for avoiding fall damage when going down the mountain.

If you’d like to know how to make a Glider in Lego mode, our guide has everything you need to know.

How to craft a Glider and move faster in LEGO Fortnite?

To craft a Glider, you will need to upgrade your Crafting Bench to a Rare quality. If you’ve spent more than 10 hours playing the game so far, chances are that you already have your bench at this rarity and that you’re only missing the necessary materials.

A Glider in LEGO Fortnite requires the following crafting ingredients:

  • 8x Flexwood Rod
  • 4x Wood Fabric
  • 6x Silk Fabric

Additionally, these are the stations you will need for the process:

  • Crafting Bench (Rare)
  • Spinning Wheel
  • Lumber Mill
  • Loom

Once you upgrade your Crafting Bench to the necessary level, you will have to collect the necessary ingredients to make a glider. This process is relatively simple, although you will need to use a few other stations to complete this process.

✓ Asmir’s Advice

Upgrade your Crafting Bench early in the game

Your Crafting Bench is arguably the most important station in LEGO Fortnite. Due to this, you should upgrade it as soon as possible. Not only will you get access to a Glider, but you’ll also be much stronger with upgraded weapons and health.

How to get Flexwood and Flexwood Rod in LEGO Fortnite

Flexwood is one of the most important crafting ingredients you need in LEGO Fortnite. It is a requirement for many items, so you need to know how to obtain it. To get Flexwood, you first need to find or craft a Rare Forest Axe.

Once you have this axe, head over to the dessert and chop down cacti. Whenever you destroy a cactus, you will receive Flexwood. To make a Glider in Lego mode, you need 8 Flexwood Rods, which you can get by processing Flexwood at a Lumber Mill.

How to get Silk and Wool Fabric in LEGO Fortnite

After you obtain Flexwood Rods, you will need to get Silk and Wool Fabrics. This process is quite easy, although it takes a bit more time. To begin, you need to get Silk by eliminating spiders and Wool from sheep. While spiders are hostile, you can either eliminate or pet sheep to get Wool.

Once you obtain enough items, head over to your Spinning Wheel and use it to get new items. With this station, you need to turn Wool into Wool Thread and Silk into Silk Thread.

Finally, you will need to obtain two different types of fabrics to make a Glider in LEGO Fortnite. For this process, you need to build and use a Loom.

Once you build a Loom, you will need to turn Wool Thread into Wool Fabric, and Silk Thread into Silk Fabric. These are the final crafting ingredients you need to obtain to craft a Glider. When you add them to your inventory, head over to your Crafting Bench, visit the last tab, and make a Glider.

After crafting a Glider, you need to equip it.

To equip the item, open your inventory and place it into the Equipment slot. You have four Equipment slots, with three of them reserved for Charms and one for a Glider.

After equipping the Glider in LEGO Fortnite, you can test it by jumping off the mountain and pressing the jump button twice to activate it. However, it’s important to note that you will lose stamina while using this item. Due to this, you need to pay attention to the bar in the middle of your screen.
