If you’re on the hunt for some Copper Bars in LEGO Fortnite but haven’t figured out how to get it yet, then this is the guide for you as I show you how to get Copper Bars in the game.

LEGO Fortnite is full to the brim with useful resources that can be put to several different uses, from Knotroot to Malachite. Copper Bars have a few uses themselves, so making sure you can get them easily is essential.

To get Copper Bars in LEGO Fortnite, you'll need to process Copper and Brightcore in a Metal Smelter. We have a guide here on how to get the Metal Smelter, but, in short, you'll need to get your Village upgraded to a certain level and craft it with several common resources.

Copper can be mined in abundance in the various caves dotted throughout the biomes, and we even have map seeds that can lead you to places where you'll find plenty of caves early on.
