LEGO Fortnite Blast Powder featured

Blast Powder is a rare resource to find in LEGO Fortnite. You can’t craft this item for yourself, so you’ll have to look for it. However, the game does not provide explicit instructions on where to start looking.

Since LEGO Fortnite is such a big place, you’ll have to search high and low in order to get Blast Powders. But I can help you cut down on time by teaching you the best way to get a Blast Powder for yourself.

Get Blast Powder from Skeleton Pirates in LEGO Fortnite

There are multiple ways to find Blast Powder in LEGO Fortnite, although the best and most consistent way is by fighting the Skeleton Pirates mobs in the Shores biome. You can find Blast Powder by other means, like looting it from chests inside caves or as drops from other enemy groups.

Skeleton Pirate mobs aren’t the only ones who drop Blast Powder, but they seem to be the ones who likely do so. Pirate mobs spawn exclusively at night and patrol the Shores biome. That’s the biome usually found in-between the Grasslands and Dry Valley, which looks like a beach before a large body of water.

Other enemy mobs do drop Blast Powder by defeating the whole group, but this method isn’t as consistent. Looking for them inside chests in caves isn’t a reliable way to stock up on this resource, as chests do not refill after some time.

What is the Blast Powder used for in LEGO Fortnite

Blast Powder can’t be used by itself but is a key material to make Dynamite and Activation Switches. If you made some form of vehicle, like a make shift airplane using balloons and thrusters, then you’re going to need Blast Powder.
