According to leaks, LEGO Fortnite is set to receive a new Refiner and a Titanium Shovel in future updates. The addition of these items will make crafting materials in the game much easier.

In LEGO Fortnite, all you need to do is craft items so that you can build a cozy hamlet for yourself and your friends. While you can explore multiple biomes, players have often said that the crafting recipes and items in the game feel slightly limited.

With a brand new update on the horizon, new leaks about the game have surfaced. These leaks suggest that a new Refiner and a Titanium Shovel will be coming to LEGO Fortnite shortly. However, it’s currently unclear if the January 23 update will bring these items to the game.

The most interesting bit about the Refiner in LEGO Fortnite is that it will allow you to refine Rift Fragments from Rift Ores. As seen in the leaked video the Refiner looks a lot like The Bridge from Fortnite, which also happens to be a pivotal item in the lore of the game.

The Titanium Shovel in LEGO Fortnite on the other hand is much more efficient than the regular Shovel. With every scoop, you will be able to gather five stacks of Soil. Not only that, you will also be able to collect seeds from the ground.

That said, you won’t be able to loot these items – you will reportedly have to craft them. The leaks don’t talk about the crafting recipes for the Refiner or the Titanium Shovel. So to know how to build them, you will unfortunately have to wait till they go live in LEGO Fortnite.

It’s worth noting that these are still leaks, and you should take them with a grain of salt. LEGO Fortnite is still a new game and there’s a lot of potential. If what the leaks say is true, you will soon be able to create more unique designs and structures.
