Food Processor

At the newly introduced Food Processor Stations, you can process caught fish into fish fillets. Crafting or using a Sawmill unlocks the recipe for the Food Processor.


Seafood isn’t just limited to fish fillets; with a grill, you can also prepare dishes like Smoked Smallfry or Sushi with Black & Blue Shieldfish.


All you need to fish is a Fishing Rod and water. But fish are a slippery bunch, so don’t just cast your line and expect fish to flock. Throw bait into water to create a Fishing Spot!

Get bait from a Bait Bucket, which has four rarities you can craft. The rarer the bucket, the more likely you are to attract a fish:


Bait Bucket Information
  1. Common (Craftable at Food Processor): Recipe unlocks when Fish Filet is in inventory and there is a Food Processor in the world
  2. Uncommon (Craftable at Juicer): Recipe unlocks when Common Bait Bucket is in inventory and there is a Juicer in the world
  3. Rare (Craftable at Juicer): Recipe unlocks when Common Bait Bucket is in inventory and there is a Juicer in the world

In v28.30, two new materials, “Sand” and “Glass,” are introduced to LEGO® Fortnite. You can dig sand out of sandy ground using a shovel. With sand and a crafting bench, you can craft glass.


The SPYGLASS magnifies distant views.

With glass in your inventory and a crafting bench in the world, the recipe for the SPYGLASS is unlocked. Craftable at the crafting bench.




The compass adds basic navigation to the HUD, indicating which direction you’re facing.

Crafting an Advanced Compass adds navigation and map markers to the HUD. The recipe can be unlocked using the same steps as the regular compass.
