If you have taken the time to build yourself a new home in your village, only to realize you’ve put it in the wrong place, you might be wondering if you can move it without destroying it. Unfortunately, there’s bad news on that front, and we’ve got all the details.

Building your village from the ground up is hard. You don’t know where exactly to put buildings or how many houses you’ll need for your villagers. It’s no surprise then that eventually, you’ll realize that you’ve made an error somewhere along the way and want to move or delete them.

Can you move structures or items in LEGO Fortnite?

Unfortunately, you are not able to move buildings or items in LEGO Fortnite. Wherever you choose to place them at the beginning of the building process is where they will sit. It’s not like LEGO in real life, where you can just pick them up and move them.

With that in mind, try and be thoughtful about where you place them, especially if you’re worried about the aesthetics of your village.

Even worse, moving furniture in LEGO Fortnite is no different.

Can you delete buildings or items in LEGO Fortnite?

On top of that, if you do happen to construct it in the wrong place, there’s no way to delete buildings in one fell swoop either.

The only way to get rid of a building is to demolish it with tools.

Easiest way to destroy buildings

You can use any tools you like to demolish things, but I found that punching it with your fists is the easiest way to destroy buildings.

The common pickaxe does the same amount of damage to structures as your fists, so there’s no real reason to use it. Using your firsts will save some wear on your pickaxe so you can keep using it on things that need it to be harvested.

Do you get your materials back when you destroy structures and items?

Yes, you get all your materials back when you destroy structures and items in LEGO Fortnite. Whether it’s a shack, a chest, or just a wall, whatever you spent to build it will pop right out when you smash it to bits.

Simply walk over to them, pick them up, and they’ll be back in your inventory.
