Cut Amber is a valuable resource in LEGO Fortnite that is used in various recipes in the game, and here is how to get it and what it’s used for.
There are various types of materials in LEGO Fortnite, with a wide array of them. Some of the essential items in the game are hidden behind obtaining and reengineering them for other uses. Below, we explain how players can get Cut Amber.
How to Acquire Cut Amber in LEGO Fortnite
Cut Amber is created by obtaining Rough Amber from the tops of Mesas in the Dry Valley and placing it in a Gem Cutter. Rough Amber is the raw variant of the gem and, therefore, needs to be cleaned and cut to change.
Players must first head to a Mesa in the desert biome (bring anything with heat resistance). The structures are the biome’s version of mountains and usually resemble little spires. After using an Uncommon Pickaxe or stronger and mining the amber, it must be placed within a Gem Cutter, and the recipe for Cut Amber must be selected.
To have a Gem Cutter to build, players need to acquire the following components:
- 20x Marble Slabs (Mined from Grasslands caves and refined in a Stone Breaker)
- 5x Rough Amber
- 5x Sand Claws (Obtained by defeating Wolves in the Dry Valley)
- 3x Sand Shells (Acquired from Roller enemies defeated in the Dry Valley biome)
Once players have the necessary components, they can turn many of the gems in LEGO Fortnite into proper Cut variants, allowing for more items to be made.
