How to Unlock LEGO Characters and Skins in Fortnite

First off, the new LEGO mode in Fortnite won’t be available until December 7, 2023. So if you’re reading this before that date, those new skins and characters are currently inaccessible, and you’ll just need to wait until they unlock later this week. Thankfully, there’s plenty of other features to enjoy in the meantime.

That said, unlocking the LEGO skins in Fortnite, once they arrive, is pretty easy and straightforward.

You’ll first need to equip any skin you already have unlocked, then launch the LEGO Fortnite Mode from the game’s main menu. If your equipped skin is supported, it’ll automatically transform into a LEGO version of that skin, allowing you to play the game as a cute little LEGO-fied version of your skin and character.

In addition to that, the minifigs will also be able to use whatever emotes you’ve already unlocked, and you can show them off in the lobby. As always, this is purely a cosmetic change and won’t have any impact on gameplay whatsoever, but it just adds a bit of fun flavor to the game overall.

That being said, it’s worth noting that these outfits cannot be used in the regular battle royale mode, and it seems like they’ll only be available in the dedicated LEGO Fortnite Mode. So if you want to enjoy the game minifig-style, that’s where you’ll have to go. Equally, not every single existing Fortnite skin will have a LEGO equivalent, so you may face some disappointment.

That’s all you need to know about how to get the LEGO skins in Fortnite. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game, including how to get the Lamborghini, and what the new yellow circle means.
