Fortnite Season 6 introduced the crafting system to the game. If you’re struggling to understand your new inventory, you’ve come to the right place.
Fortnite Season 6 is still young, and players are just jumping-in to explore the new map. Apart from the new scenery, the first thing you’ll probably notice is that the inventory system got a rework. We now have a crafting tab, which allows you to effectively upgrade, sidegrade, and transform weapons on the fly.
Ahead, we’ll cover everything we know about the new crafting system in Season 6, along with some tips on how to get the most powerful weapons in the game.
Fortnite Season 6 crafting guide
The crafting system has supplemented the upgrade system in Fortnite, which was under fire during Season 5 for the unavailabilty of upgrades. You can still upgrade weapons with Gold from NPCs, but crafting now offers a more consistent way to improve your kit.
The new crafting system allows players to create the inventory that they want. You will gain crafting materials from hunting wildlife, eliminating players, destroying vehicles, and purchasing it from NPCs. After that, you can use it to upgrade your Makeshift items to Primal and Mechanical weapons.
Certain combinations of items also offer special crafting recipes. For instance, if you combine two Shockwaves and a Mechanical Bow, you’ll be able to craft the Mechanical Shockwave Bow. You could make a different, more dangerous bow if you use six Grenades, instead.
Primal weapons are brand new this season, but most players seem to prefer the Mechanical weapons – which are normal weapons from past Fortnite seasons. You can still find them on the ground, but it might be easier to grab a Makeshift weapon and upgrade it to Mechanical after whacking a few cars with your pickaxe.
We’ll update this article and provide additional guides when we learn more about the hunting and crafting systems in Fortnite Season 6. Until then, make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on the latest Fortnite news.

Here’s a map of all of the NPCs in Fortnite Season 8. We’ll keep this updated over the course of the season as more appear or are found around the map. Bigfoot, for instance, is missing from this list. We’re not sure whether that’s because he isn’t there or just hasn’t been found yet.
- Disguised man: offers a prop disguise
- Pink Rift: allows you to activate a Rift
- Yellow Cloud: Reveal Future Storm Circle
Compared to seasons past, the number of Fortnite character locations in Season 8 is very minimal. As well, players can no longer upgrade weapons through NPCs. The pool of Mythic weapons has also been minimized.
