Brightcore is a fantastic material that allows you to upgrade your gear, which starts glowing in the dark, allowing you to explore caves without using a Torch. Our guide will provide you with tips on how to get and use Brightcore in LEGO Fortnite.

How to Get Brightcore in LEGO Fortnite

I was able to find Brightcore ore inside Lava Caves, which are located in the Dry Valley biome. Note that you need to use heat-resistant charms or materials before venturing inside this cave, as the temperature inside will burn you. Here are a few things that can help you survive the Lava Caves:

  • Snowberry Milkshake.
  • Raw Snow Berries.
  • Cool-Headed Charm.

Once you enter the cave, you can use any rare pickaxe to mine Brightcore, which usually spawns closer to the flows of lava. This ore has a peculiar bright orange glow, so it’s easy to identify.

Brightcore is typically used to enhance your gear and tools, granting them the ability to illuminate your surroundings, whether at night or inside dark caves, without using torches. But it has another extremely important role, as it’s one of the main ingredients in crafting Copper Bars. Here’s the exact recipe:

  • 1 Copper Ore
  • 2 Brightcore

You can use these materials inside the Metal Smelter to craft various other materials. If you haven’t got the Metal Smelter yet, then here’s the crafting recipe for this workstation, which also uses Brightcore:

  • 15 Brightcore
  • 35 Obsidian Slabs
  • 3 Blast Cores

Combine all these ingredients inside a Crafting Bench, and you’ll be able to craft and smelt any type of material in the game.
