How to Get Balloon in LEGO Fortnite: A Comprehensive Guide

As part of this all-inclusive guide, we delve into the art of crafting balloons in LEGO Fortnite, from setting up the necessary crafting stations to actual balloon construction, and finally getting it off the ground.

Understanding the Versatility of LEGO Fortnite's Gameplay

Suppose you've dipped your toes into the vast, variegated landscape of LEGO Fortnite. In that case, you'll know that the game offers an impressive range of exploration opportunities with its expansive fields, dense forests, and intriguing caves. But, like a kite reaching out for the blue of the sky, did you know your in-game avatar can soar above the virtual landscape, too? It's all about mastering the art of balloon crafting. Through this piece, we show you the ropes step by step.

Constructing Material-Creating Stations: Initial Building Blocks

Before your character can commence floating about the Fortnite world in a balloon, specific prerequisites exist. Specifically, you'll need two crafting stations: A Loom and a Spinning Wheel. These essential stations enable you to manufacture the vital materials for fashioning the balloon.

To craft a Spinning Wheel, you would require the following materials:

  • Five pieces of Wood
  • 5 Wooden Rods
  • 5 Wolf Claws
  • 8 Planks

And for constructing a Loom, you'll have to collect:

  • 6 Sand Claws
  • 8 Flexwood Rods
  • 9 Flexwood

It's worth noting that the materials for the blueprint required to build a Loom must be sourced beforehand. When you stumble upon items like Flexwood Rods, Sandy Claws, and Silk, the blueprint will be added to your inventory, enabling the construction of the Loom. Remember, the Desert Biome (Dry Valley) is a prime location for Flexwood and Sand Claws. A little adventurous spirit could go a long way here.

Creating Balloons

Armed with the crafting above stations, you are ready to ease off the terra firma and into lofty heights. Two types of balloons – Small and Large – can be fashioned via the Loom.

The materials you'll need for a Small Balloon include:

  • 1 Silk Fabric
  • 1 Torch
  • 1 Cord

For a Large Balloon, you would need:

  • 2 Silk Fabrics
  • 1 Torch
  • 1 Cord

Getting your Balloon Afloat

Before crafting your balloon, prepare a platform to append it on. Affixing the balloon onto this platform will trigger it to levitate. However, to avoid a lopsided ascent, it is crucial to balance the balloons. We recommend placing them on the corners of the platform or the center of each side for optimal balance.

Now, you have the know-how for crafting and utilizing balloons in LEGO Fortnite. Don't stop here! Leap further into our other in-depth LEGO Fortnite guides, where topics such as acquiring Copper and building vehicles are discussed. Keep leveling up your gameplay!
