Metal Smelters, like Copper are one of the key items to upgrade your structures. From melting down Copper to make them into bars, and advancing your craftmanship to another level, you need this Metal Smelter to make high-quality tools.

How to make Metal Smeltar

To craft a Metal Smelter, you must first reach village level 9. Once you have unlocked the level, you will get the recipe in your Inventory of the Utility Stations. These are the materials that are required to make a Metal Smelter:

  • 35x Obsidian Slabs
  • 15x Brightcores
  • 3x Blast Cores

However, these ingredients are hard to find, and you must grind quite a bit. So prepare yourself for a journey and make sure to increase your heat resistance. Get enough foods like Snowberries to sustain the environmental hazard. The Obsidian Slabs and Brightcores can be found in the Lava Caves of the Dry Valley Biomes region. To gather these ingredients, you have to unlock the Rare Pickaxe first. The Brightcores are red-colored, and the Obsidians are the black stones you can find on the walls of these caves.

Obsidian slabs must be crafted using the Obsidians you farm from these caves. Put the rare Obsidian on a Stone Breaker, and you will get the Obsidian slab from it. Since you need a massive amount of Obsidian Slabs, you will need to farm a lot of Obsidians from the Dry Valley biome caves.

To get the Blast Cores in LEGO Fortnite, you must defeat the Blaster enemies. You will get this ingredient from the drop of these mobs. Each Blaster mob will drop one piece of the Blast Core, so you must defeat three to gather enough materials for Metal Smelter.

Once you have collected all the materials needed to craft the Metal Smelter, you need to go to the build menu and craft the item.
