LEGO Fortnite has become very popular in its first week. Released on December 7, the game has already attracted millions of players. Considering how fun the game is, this comes as no surprise. On top of that, Epic Games will keep updating it with new content from time to time.

The first major change has already arrived! To the delight of many players, the first LEGO Fortnite update fixed one of the biggest issues in the game. Furthermore, the update was automatically released, so there is no need to download it.

The first LEGO Fortnite update increases the durability of items

Nearly every weapon in the new Fortnite game mode has its durability stat. This stat shows how much you can use the weapon before it breaks. For example, you may swing an Uncommon Longsword 50 times before you have to replace it.

Unfortunately, there is no way to completely repair items in LEGO Fortnite at the moment. The only way to increase their durability is by enchanting them at an Essence Table. Due to this, Epic Games released a minor update that increased the durability of all tools and weapons by 30%.

It’s important to note that the update changed the maximum durability of items in LEGO Fortnite. If you already have weapons in your inventory, they will appear more damaged due to this. However, newly crafted items will have a higher durability, and you will be able to use them longer before they break.

Considering how popular LEGO Fortnite has been, we expect Epic Games to release more updates for it soon. With millions of players playing the game every day, it has a lot of potential and could be a serious competitor to Minecraft and other similar titles. Furthermore, it’s important to note that LEGO Fortnite will stay in the game as a permanent mode.
