How to increase health in LEGO Fortnite

When you first start out, you’ll have just three hearts to your name, meaning you can easily end up dying if you’re not careful from any monsters or even just the cold. For that reason, you’ll want to make sure you increase your hearts early to avoid any unwanted deaths.

Your only method of gaining more hearts is to craft and equip Health Charms. These charms all vary in strength, with some providing more hearts than others. In addition to this, they also give you a defense buff, making it even easier to survive in combat.

You can get Health Charms with two methods. The first method is to craft them on a Crafting Bench. This requires you to have 3x Silk, 1x Marble, and 1x Shell. You can get Silk from killing spiders, Marble can be found randomly in caves, and Shells can be obtained by defeating rollers. Once you have all the materials, head to your Crafting Bench and make your charm.

If you don’t know how or where to get some of this, check out our guides on where to find Shells and Rollers, and where to find Marble.

The second way to get Health Charms is by looting. You can find treasure chests and llamas around which can provide you with some pretty great loot. You can locate these by following rainbow butterflies which you’ll occasionally find. This isn’t the most consistent way of getting Health Charms, but is always worth doing when you see a butterfly, as you don’t know what you’ll get.
