The most recent major LEGO Fortnite update occurred on Wednesday 7th February 2024, with Epic Games announcing this ahead of time.

In terms of a precise time, the Epic Games server status website stated that this update should be available for UK players by 1pm GMT. This seems to be roughly what happened, give or take!

As ever, this Fortnite update was preceded by some Fortnite server downtime.

LEGO Fortnite patch notes: What's changed?

Epic Games has introduced the new Hunting Dagger weapon in the version 28.20 LEGO Fortnite update. This isn't all that has been added or changed, however, with plenty of gameplay alterations and fixes taking place in the patch notes.

Here is the full list of LEGO Fortnite 28.20 patch notes (as per the official Fortnite website):

Hunting Dagger

Nobody said survival was easy — so stay safe out there with a Hunting Dagger! Craftable from a Crafting Bench, it’s most effective when enemies are distracted. There are four rarities to craft, each one stronger than the last:

  • Common Hunting Dagger (craftable at a Level 1 Crafting Bench)
    • Unlock the recipe for the Common Hunting Dagger by adding a Bone to your inventory.
  • Uncommon Hunting Dagger (craftable at a Level 2 Crafting Bench)
    • Unlock the recipe for the Uncommon Hunting Dagger by adding a Cut Amber to your inventory.
  • Rare Hunting Dagger (craftable at a Level 3 Crafting Bench)
    • Unlock the recipe for the Rare Hunting Dagger by adding a Cut Ruby to your inventory.
  • Epic Hunting Dagger (craftable at a Level 4 Crafting Bench)
    • Unlock the recipe for the Epic Hunting Dagger by adding a Cut Sapphire to your inventory.

New LEGO Styles

Improvements, Adjustments, and Bug Fixes


  • You can fly faster in Sandbox worlds!
  • It’s easier to place builds close to each other.
  • Commute and converse… You can talk to Villagers while on a moving object, including a Dynamic Foundation!
  • Items will be returned to your inventory after you change recipes at a Crafting Bench.
  • Tree logs will remain between gameplay sessions.
  • Village Squares can no longer be placed on things not attached to the ground, since this was causing Village Squares to break.
  • Upgrading a Crafting Bench while another player is using it will work properly. (Waste your resources no more!)
  • Fixed an issue where using the “Deposit” or “Deposit Stack” options to put seeds in soil could make seeds go missing.
  • Fixed an issue where getting resources from Chests wouldn’t make recipes unlock.
  • Fixed an issue where the building limitation system would sometimes report that an area was too dense to build in, even though it wasn’t.
  • Fixed an issue where the cold status could stay on you if you were eliminated with the status.
  • Fixed an issue where wolves would sometimes run away from you for no reason.
  • Reduced the likelihood of the same Villager spawning twice.
  • The grass is always greener over there, and apparently the storms are louder… A storm happening in the Grasslands will no longer scare Villagers in other biomes.

Stability and Performance

  • The frame rate when shadows are around is improved.
  • Improved stability so that crashes aren’t as likely.


  • Fixed an issue where Dynamic Foundations could disappear when traveling long distances at high speeds.
  • Fixed an issue where Toys could disappear after builds on a nearby Dynamic Foundation broke.
  • Fixed an issue where some crumbled builds could be pushed by players.


  • A “Take All” option has been added to Chests. This is a quick way to get all of a stored resource!
