The hardest and rarest shell to find in LEGO Fortnite is the frost shell. To find the frost shell, you have to take a trip to the northern side of your map. Once in the snowy lands, look for frosty white snow lying around the ground. Most of the time, if you are close enough, the frost rollers will find you instead.

Unlike other rollers, they will be harder to kill. The frost rollers have the most health points and deal devastating damage. They also throw damaging objects at you if you are at a distance from them. So, make sure you are prepared to fight these snowy creatures.

How to Beat Rollers in LEGO Fortnite

Finding and beating rollers can seem a bit hard if you do not know the proper methods. Rollers are one of the toughest creatures in LEGO Fortnite that you have to fight. This might get you killed by them and lose the items in your backpack. That is why we have some tips that can help you beat the rollers with ease in LEGO Fortnite.

  • One of the first things you should do is craft an uncommon or higher rarity longsword using the crafting bench. This will help you combat the rollers with a swing or two. Moreover, you can craft a recurve bow. However, the bow needs higher accuracy and might take a longer time to defeat the rolling demons.
  • A must-have tool to fight the rollers is the knight shield. You can get any rarity of knight shield from the crafting bench. Once you have a knight shield, drag it to the offhand section from your inventory.

  • Once a roller approaches you, hold your alternate fire button (Right mouse button on PC, L2/ LT on consoles). This will block any incoming damage from the common rolling attack of the roller. After their attack is blocked, they will flip upside down and stay in a stunned situation. During this period, you can hit the roller and deal maximum damage.
  • A bonus tip I must add is that if you are near water, just let them roll toward you. Once they are close enough, press the dodge button (Left Ctrl on PC, L1/ LB on consoles). If you can make the rollers roll into water, they will die instantly upon water contact. This can save you a lot of time combating the rolling creatures.

That was all about how you can find and obtain shells in LEGO Fortnite. What is going to be the first thing you will craft with the new shells? Tell us in the comments.
