1. What is Crafting in Fortnite?

Before starting towards the main concept of Crafting it is necessary to have its introduction, so it will not confuse you later. If you have played League of Legends or Dota 2, then crafting is going to be a lot easier for you:
Crafting is a mechanic act, in which you collect multiple items to complete one big item.

For example, you want a suit but to complete that suit you need a pant, a shirt, a coat, and a tie. When you are able to collect all these things then you have a proper suit. This process of finding things to complete one big item is called Crafting. Crafting allows gamers to collect the resources to complete one epic item. It can be a weapon, trap or many other items like blast powder to destroy enemy players or ammo for your guns.We will move step by step in the guide so it would not confuse you. Let’s move towards the recipes and Schematics.

2. What are Fortnite Recipes and Schematics?

Fortnite Recipe Explanation:
Fortnite Recipes are the items which are collected to make one big item. We can relate it to the above example of the suit. The pant, shirt tie, and coat were the recipes for the item (suit). Now I hope that your concept about the recipes is clear. I know it sounds ridiculously easy, but this it is important to understand the basics perfectly!

Fortnite Schematics Explanation:
Let’s proceed towards what Fortnite Schematics are and what is its role in Crafting. Schematics are very crucial for crafting: Fortnite Schematics are the plan that is found in multiple loots during the game and are also offered as some quest rewards.The main recipe which allows a player to craft a weapon or traps from the collected resources are the Schematics, that is why it is so important for crafting.

I think now the concept of recipes and Schematics are cleared.
Let’s proceed towards the main topic: How to craft!

3. How to Craft in Fortnite?

It is time for the big shot, let’s learn how you can craft. But you have to keep one thing in mind that you can only craft an item or a weapon while you are on a mission, because crafting only occurs whenever you are in a mission. You just have to press “q” in order to switch from weapon to structure crafting and trap placements. In order to craft an item or weapon, you need the schematic and the necessary materials before you can continue. If you don’t have all the things then you will not be able to complete the crafting. We can clear this problem by the above example that if you have a shirt, tie, and coat but do not have the pant then how you will be able to complete the suit? Same goes for Crafting: you cannot miss anything.

Once you have collected all the resources and schematics, go to your inventory and select an item or weapon you want to craft. But choose wisely maybe you will not get another chance. You can get chances in a relationship but not in gaming!  :D

Let’s proceed further after selecting the items you want to craft, you will see a list of the needed Fortnite materials as well as how much of each material you currently have.The hard work is over now after selecting you just have to click craft and after a few seconds, you will find your item in inventory. Without making the guideline boring let’s go for the Crafting Ingredients. To make it interesting, let’s make the long story short.
