How To Get Glider In LEGO Fortnite

To unlock the Glider, you must upgrade your crafting bench to at least level 2 (rare level). Once you reach this level, you will unlock several essential recipes, including the Glider. To craft a Glider, here are the ingredients that you need:

  • x4 Wool Fabric
  • x6 Silk Fabric
  • x8 Flexwood Rod

However, gathering the required materials will require you to grind a bit since none can be found as loot or material. You will have to gather several other ingredients to make the Wool Fabric, Silk Fabric, and Flexwood Rod and then use these to make the Glider.

At first, you will have to gather enough Silk and Wool and then turn them into Silk Thread and Wool Thread using the Spinning Wheel. After you have the threads, use the Loom to turn your silk threads into silk fabric and wool threads into wool fabric.

To get the Flexwood Rods, use the Flexwood on the Lumber Mill, which will provide you with Flexwood Rods. Flexwoods can only be found in the Dry Valley biome and need to be cut with a rare axe. With all the ingredients collected, choose a Glider from your recipe and then craft it.

Glider makes your movement around the map much easier, and allows you to move much faster. If you are tired of walking around the map, the Glider can be a helpful tool for you.

The Glider can only be used while you are in the air. The Glider controls are very simple; once you are in the air, press the jump button to open the Glider. If you want to close the Glider, press the jump button again, and it will close. But make sure you don’t close the glider while still a bit high from the ground, as this can be lethal.
