How to Get Blast Powder in Fortnite
Most of the time if you need some sort of material in Fortnite, you will have to go collect it from hacking away at your environment or hope you find it inside different chests and crates. In rare instances, however, what you’re looking for won’t just be something that is laying around the map waiting for you to stumble upon it. So how exactly do you get your hands on something that can’t be collected from the world around you? In Fortnite you’ll eventually start living by the philosophy that if you can’t find it you’ll just have to make it. This is exactly what you’ll have to do here.
In order to get blast powder, you will actually have to go into the crafting menu while in a mission and make it. Both blast powder and duct tape can be crafted here despite the fact that they aren’t automatically collected by tearing down parts of your environment. While you won’t have to hunt down the blast powder itself, you will have to go find the ingredients necessary to craft it. In order to craft blast powder you will first need to get your hands on some coal and round/smooth ore.
Also keep in mind that you may also receive blast powder from recycling weapons.
