Materials needed to craft Glass in LEGO Fortnite.

To make Glass in LEGO Fortnite, you’ll need to combine 2 Sand and 1 Brightcore using the Metal Smelter. Here’s how you can obtain both these materials:

Sand: you can obtain Sand by heading to the desert biome and digging the ground with a Shovel. Make sure to equip some heat-resistant charms first, though, as the temperature in this biome can be pretty unforgiving.

Brightcore: for Brightcore, you’ll need to go inside lava caves in the desert biome and mine them using a Rare Pickaxe. They look like glowing orange rocks and usually spawn around walls inside a lava cave. Keep in mind that it’s also scorching here, so don’t forget to equip some heat-resistant charms as well.

Assuming you’ve gathered all the materials needed, you can go straight to your Metal Smelter and select the Glass option to craft it.

That sums up how you can make Glass in LEGO Fortnite. In case you haven’t unlocked the Metal Smelter yet, you’ll want to focus on upgrading your Village as its recipe can only be unlocked once your Village Hub reaches level 9.
