If you want to get your hands on Launch Pads in LEGO Fortnite, here’s everything you need to know about how to unlock and build them in-game.

LEGO Fortnite has quickly become one of the game’s most popular modes, shattering player count records when it launched.

One of the main aspects of the game surrounds building with your own LEGO pieces to make and craft various structures and items. Players have built a wide range of different creations, which have included anything from moving vehicles to even recreating an iconic Call of Duty map.

Epic Games has now added a wave of new features and changes in the V28.10 update. One of these is the brand-new Launch Pad item. Here is how to unlock, build, and use the Building Part in LEGO Fortnite.

How to unlock Launch Pads in LEGO Fortnite

To unlock Launch Pads in LEGO Fortnite, you will need to get four Copper Bars and one piece of Silk Fabric.

Launch Pads can be found at the bottom of the Toys section of the Build Menu in the game.

Players have reported that when jumping straight into the game after the update, they have been unable to see that a Launch Pad is available for them to make from the ‘Toys’ section of their Build menu.

Instead, players have found that if they collect the Copper Bars and Silk Fabric ingredients needed, it will then be unlocked. Also, make sure your Village level is at least 7 and that you have unlocked the other Toys already.

How to build a Launch Pad in LEGO Fortnite

To build a Launch Pad, you must use your Build menu and go to the ‘Toys’ section, where you can select and make it using eight Flexwood, four Copper Bars, and one piece of Silk Fabric.

You can then place the Launch Pad anywhere you would like, such as on the floor or even on top of a Dynamic Foundation to elevate your builds.

If you need help getting any of these ingredients, then see our guides on how to get Flexwood and Copper Bars. To get Silk Fabric, you would need to obtain five Silk from Spiders, use a Spinny Wheel to make five pieces of Silk Thread, and put five into a Loom to get one piece of Silk Fabric.
