Where to Get Brightcore in Lego Fortnite

You can only find brightcore in the lava caves of the Dry Valley. They are located in the Desert biome. Once there, go on an exploration to find the caves in LEGO Fortnite. You will also find other resources like copper and obsidian ores in these caves.

Brightcore ores

Once you are inside these lava caves, look for the lava streams. Brightcores are located beside the lava streams and mostly stick to the surrounding walls.

The brightcore ores have a bright orange color (similar to lava) that you can spot from a distance. In our experience, we only found the ores located close to the lava, so keep that in mind when you go looking. Once spotted, simply mine, and you will get it. What tool do you need to mine it? Well, let’s find out.

Tools You Need to Mine Brightcore

Now that you have located the brightcore ore, it is time to mine them. However, you need a couple of things for that. Firstly, you will need a rare pickaxe to break the brightcore ores. If you have a lower rarity pickaxe, it will not break the ore.

We also suggest you carry some regular wood to reach the brightcore ores located on the cave ceilings. Finally, ensure you have LEGO Fortnite food items such as Frost Berries or a cool-headed charm at hand since the lava caves boast some extreme temperatures.

1. Upgrade Your Crafting Bench

Before you craft a Rare Pickaxe, you will need to upgrade your crafting bench to level 3 (Rare). You need planks and 3 shells to upgrade your Crafting Bench to Level 2 (Uncommon).

After that, you’ll need 12 knotroot rods, 15 marble slabs, 6 sand claws, and 3 sand shells to upgrade the bench to the needed level. Follow the steps below:
