Fortnite LEGO Balloon: How to unlock this recipe?

In Lego Fortnite, you will quickly go exploring, and to help you, you will be able to build vehicles. If you want to go by air, you will have to learn how to make balloons and that is precisely the subject of our guide.

Before we launch more specifically into how you will be able to use the balloons on Lego Fortnite, we must first take a look at their craft! The first thing to note is that while it may not make the most sense for crafting, you will need a loom.

To build it, you will need 9 pieces of softwood, 8 soft rods, and 6 sand claws. All these elements, you will be able to find them in the intermediate biome of the game in terms of difficulty, the desert biome, provided you know where to look.

To help you, we have put together guides for you. So, be sure to check out this one for softwood and this one for desert claws. Once all these elements are gathered, all you have to do is build the loom.

You will then have to find spiders which are found everywhere, even in meadows, to collect their silk. Then pass this silk through the loom to obtain silk fabric, which combined with a torch and a rope will allow you to craft small balloons.

If you want large balloons that make it even easier to make the objects you place them on fly away, the recipe and ingredients are the same. The only difference is that you will need 2 silk fabrics instead of one for the little ones.

Use balloons to create a vehicle

Once you have crafted these balloons, all you have to do is place them on a dynamic structure in order to make them fly away, although you will have to be careful. Indeed, we are talking here about a simple hot air balloon and not a fully pilotable vessel.

One of the tricks for this is to put thrusters on the back of your vehicle that will move you forward while you are in the air. As a rudder, build a structure in front with a switch. All you have to do is place it on the right or left and activate it when you want to turn. >

It's not necessarily the most advanced vehicle, but it has the advantage of ultimately being quite simple to set up in your games and above all not costing too much... Just be careful to get on the platform before placing the balloons so that it doesn't fly away without you.
