Fortnite: Craft Items With Bones & Mechanical Parts

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 is finally here and it has definitely shaken up the traditional style of gameplay that we're used to.

This season has seen the addition of crafting weapons from basic weapons into either more traditional weapons or the new Primal weapons.

Here is how to craft both using Bones and Mechanical Parts.

How to Craft Items With Bones & Mechanical Parts in Fortnite

Crafting is a new mechanic to Chapter 2 Season 6 and allows players to upgrade the Makeshift weapons to either the traditional style weapons, such as the regular Assault Rifle and Pump Shotgun, or the new Primal style weapons, these are generally older weapons re-skinned, such as the Drum Shotgun.

To do this, players need to gather either Bones or Mechanical Parts, depending on which style they want.

Bones craft Primal weapons, while Mechanical Parts craft regular weapons.


To find Bones, players need to hunt down wild animals that can be found across the map.

These are Boars, Wolves, Frogs, and Chickens.
