Where to Find Brightcore in Fortnite

To find and get Brightcore in Lego Fortnite, you’ll first have to get to the valley biome, aka the rocky desert biome. You probably know the one I mean at this point; it’s the same zone where you can get Copper and Flexwood. Once you’re in the Arizona biome, the next step is to find a cave. As far as we can tell, their locations are at least somewhat random, so we can’t really point you towards a specific place. I recommend you use one of the hot springs to launch yourself into the air, then glide around until you spot a large rock mound that indicates there’s a cave there. You should be familiar with those formations by now.

The next step to find Brightcore in Lego Fortnite is to go into that cave. But before you do, be sure to at least take some Snowberries to fight the heat. Not only is the desert hot, but these caves are usually full of lava; the temperature can sap your health real quick. Your task in the cave is to break the rocks that look like semi-popped popcorn kernels. Those drop Brightcore. And while you’re there, mine everything you can, because there are usually more valuable minerals to find.

How to Use Lego Fortnite Brightcore

Brightcore is a crafting material in Lego Fortnite, as I’m sure many of you have gathered by now. We are aware of two crafting recipes that it’s used in. The first one is the Metal Smelter, which requires fifteen Brightcore, three Blast Core (which can also be found in the lava caves) and thirty-five Obsidian Slabs. The other machine that needs Brightcores is the Oven (thirty-five Obsidian Slabs, eight Brigtcore, fifteen Copper Bars). I don’t know if there are other crafting recipes that include Brightcore; there might be more as you progress through the game. If there are, let us know in the comments.
