LEGO Fortnite throws your little blocky character into a massive map, so setting your respawn location is going to come in handy if you’re wandering off the beaten path. We’re going to show you how to do so.

LEGO Fortnite is the latest mode that could be around for a long time in the game, so getting some tips and tricks early is bound to help you make a decent start whether you're playing Survival or Sandbox mode.

How to set a respawn location in LEGO Fortnite

To set a respawn location in LEGO Fortnite, you’re going to need to sleep in a bed. Then, when you die in any way in the world, you will return to the point at which you last rested (a little like Minecraft).

This can be a bed that you have crafted yourself, or one made by someone else if you’re playing in a friend’s world, for example. The one condition is that you cannot sleep out in the rain, so make sure you've got some shelter above the bed.
