LEGO Fortnite, a brand new free-to-play survival arm of Epic Games' Fortnite, is challenging players to survive in the wilderness of the battle island. Players can craft shacks, houses, tools and more, to help build a functioning village for their crew of NPCs.
Building and scavenging is one thing, but along the way you'll be facing off against numerous enemies such as wolves, skeletons, and scorpions that each have the potential to deal some serious damage. If you want to increase your chances of survival, you'll need to increase the amount of hearts and health you have on hand.
How To Get More Hearts In LEGO Fortnite
When you start your LEGO Fortnite adventure, you'll have three hearts to your name. This will be your default health pool and while it'll serve you well in the early game, as you venture out for rarer materials you'll encounter more dangerous enemies. So, to endure their attacks, you'll need to increase your health and hearts.
To do this, you'll need to craft a Health Charm. The first Health Charm you'll be able to craft will be of common rarity, and will grant you one additional heart. As you level up your Crafting Bench, however, you'll have the ability to craft stronger Health Charms. The available Health Charms are as follows:
- Common Health Charm: +1 Heart
- Uncommon Health Charm: +2 Hearts
- Rare Health Charm: +3 Hearts
What's important to note is that you'll actually have four slots available for Charms, which means you could potentially stack multiple Health Charms to increase your available hearts even further.
How To Craft A Health Charm In LEGO Fortnite
You'll first have access to the Health Charm blueprint at the Crafting Bench, but only the intital Common Health Charm at first. To craft these Health Charms, you'll need the following materials:
Common Health Charm Materials
- Silk Thread x3
- Bone x3
- Wolf Claw x5
Uncommon Health Charm Materials
- Silk Thread x3
- Marble x1
- Shell x1
Rare Health Charm Materials
- Wool Thread x3
- Cut Amber x3
- Sand Claw x3
- Flexwood Rod x3
Naturally, the materials for the Rare Health Charm will be harder to find, and become more readily available as you progress through LEGO Fortnite. You'll also need to upgrade your Crafting Bench to a certain level before you have access to the higher grades of Health Charms.
