In the realm of LEGO Fortnite, players embark on a quest to extract Flexwood from Cactus plants, a unique resource vital for mid-game crafting. These elusive plants thrive solely within the Dry Valley desert biome and demand enhanced tools for extraction. While gathering Flexwood isn’t overly challenging, obtaining the rare materials necessary to upgrade your tools proves pivotal.

How to Cut Down Cactus in LEGO Fortnite

The initial task involves locating the Dry Valley desert biome. Unlike the predefined landing zones and landmarks in Fortnite’s primary Battle Royale mode, LEGO Fortnite’s environments undergo procedural generation. Navigating to the Dry Valley becomes a test of luck due to the randomised world creation, a departure from the predictable paths of the main game.

In order to harvest Cactus Plants, acquiring the Forest Axe of Rare quality is imperative. Accessible solely through a Crafting Bench that has undergone two enhancements, its crafting blueprint demands 5 Cut Amber and 3 Knotwood Rods.

These are the resources that you’ll need to upgrade your Crafting Bench: 

  1. For the first upgrade you’ll need 8 Planks and 3 Shells
  2. For the second, you’ll need 12 Knotwood Rods, 15 Marble Slabs, 6 Sand Claws as well as 3 Sand Shells. 

Knotwood Rods are the product of refining Knotwood via the Lumber Mill, while Sand Claws and Sand Shells are acquired as drops from vanquished Sand Wolves and Sand Rollers. These formidable creatures appear abundantly across the Dry Valley biome, necessitating suitable weaponry for their defeat.

Then when it comes to obtaining Cut Amber, it is a little more challenging. Rough Amber is a material that you’ll be able to mine from mineral veins within the Dry Valley with an Uncommon quality Pickaxe. Then later, with the use of a Gem Cutter, you’ll be able to refine them into Cut Amber. However you’ll also need these other resources to do so:

  • 20 Marble Slabs
  • 5 Rough Amber
  • 5 Sand Claws
  • 2 Sand Shells

Now that you’ve finally obtained everything that you need you should be able ot cut down Cactus Plants.
