If you’re diving into the new survival mode, your focus will be to get Awesome Points in LEGO Fortnite. They’re a crucial currency required to level up and upgrade your village, so earning as many as possible is the best way to succeed.
How to Get LEGO Fortnite Awesome Points
As per Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey on X, you earn Awesome Points in LEGO Fortnite by doing practically any meaningful task that contributes towards your village. In that way, it works similarly to base XP in Fortnite’s battle royale mode. A sample of activities to earn Awesome Points is as follows:
- Placing items
- Interacting with NPCs
Rather than any action at all, you’ll only earn Awesome Points in LEGO Fortnite by helping towards your village. This is the camp where you’ll constantly upgrade, craft new items, and function as a hub when going out to scavenge in the survival mode.
Sadly, we don’t know much else about ways of getting Awesome Points in LEGO Fortnite yet. Once the mode lands, things are bound to become much clearer. Until then, just know that any and all village-based activities will help add to your Awesome Points tally.
What Do Awesome Points Do in LEGO Fortnite?
Awesome Points in LEGO Fortnite are used to increase your Village Level. Similar to the Town Hall in Clash of Clans, this is the core of your village, with the higher level unlocking passive bonuses. iFireMonkey has leaked the bonuses for each Village Level so far:
|Awesome Points Required to Level Up

|Higher level NPCs will visit, and villagers have increased health and defence stats
