LEGO Fortnite has numerous weapons you can use to eliminate enemies. Once you start a new world, you will only have melee hand attacks at your disposal. However, you will be able to craft swords, crossbows, and other weapons later on.

If you grabbed the True Explorers Quest Pack from Fortnite’s Item Shop, you will have to go through a couple of quests to unlock the Trailblazer Tai skin. One of these quests requires you to hit and deal damage with a Recurve Crossbow in a Survival World. If you’re not sure how to do it, our guide will explain everything you need to know.

How to craft a Recurve Crossbow in LEGO Fortnite’s Survival World

A Recurve Crossbow is the first ranged weapon you’ll be able to obtain in LEGO Fortnite. However, before you can get this weapon, you need to play the game for at least an hour. In this process, you will have to build and upgrade your village, as well as craft other weapons.

Once you set up your village, you will need to build a Lumber Mill. This structure is a must, as it gives you Planks and Wooden Rods, two important ingredients. After this structure, you need to build a Spinning Wheel and upgrade your Crafting Bench.

Considering that you are on this quest, you’ve already crafted a Shortsword, which means you only need to take a few more steps. This means that you’ll have to obtain one Cord and 5 Wooden Rods. You can turn Vines into Cords, while Wooden Rods are obtained by refining Wood at Lumber Mill.

Hit enemies from distance in LEGO Fortnite

With a Recurve Crossbow, you can hit enemies from a distance. However, make sure to always have Arrows in your inventory. If you run out of them, you will have to fight hostile creatures from a melee range.

Once you acquire all the necessary crafting ingredients in LEGO Fortnite, head over to your Crafting Bench, select the second tab, and craft a Recurve Crossbow. At this point, there is only one simple step left to complete, which is hitting a target three times.

The last step is easy and straightforward. Select a Recurve Crossbow from your inventory, aim at a target, and hit it. Once you hit it three times, you will complete the quest and unlock Trailblazer Tai. You can hit any target, but we suggest you aim at chickens when they are stationary. Not only are they easy to hit, but they also drop Meat and Feather, which you may need later on.

You’ll want to make sure early on that you know how to use a Recurve Crossbow, as it will come in handy later on. As you progress, you’ll be able to craft higher-tier versions of the Recurve Crossbow, making it one of your most powerful ranged options throughout the game.

That’s everything you need to know about how to use a Recurve Crossbow. Make sure you know how to craft weapons and become stronger in LEGO Fortnite, as well as how to restore health in LEGO Fortnite too in case you get hurt while out adventuring.
