LEGO Fortnite: how to craft a Glider

How to craft a Glider in LEGO Fortnite

Having to run for ages to explore new biomes and gather LEGO Fortnite’s more valuable resources can be a real pain, so you may want to seek out ways to make it easier to get around. One of the easiest ways is to put some fabric together to make yourself a Glider. As you may expect from any other game where you use a Glider, this lets you float effortlessly around the world, making life a lot easier.

We’ll tell you how to make a Glider so you can start flying around your world.

Gliders can help you get around a lot quicker than usual in LEGO Fortnite.

To craft a Glider you first need to have your Crafting Bench upgraded to at least Rare quality, and have a Loom in your base – then the Glider recipe will unlock on your bench.

To craft it you need eight Flexwood Rods, six Silk Fabric, and four Wool Fabric. We have a guide on how to make Wool Fabric in LEGO Fortnite if you need to know how that works. The best place to source Silk from is the many spiders that spawn in Grassland biomes, while Wool is easily farmed from the sheep roaming the plains.

Once you’ve put it all together in the Loom, head over to the Crafting Bench and select the tools section – the same section where you can craft Torches, and the Glider will be ready for you to craft.

You can put it in your equipment slot on the right side of the inventory screen, and as long as you have it equipped you can open it whenever you’re in mid-air. Be careful though, as it costs stamina to use, and if you run out in mid-air you will fall to your death.
