In LEGO Fortnite, Malachite is an Epic resource required for Village upgrades and to craft different items, so you need to know how to obtain this material. I've explored most of the map to find the rarest materials and resources, and here's how you can get Malachite easily in-game.
Where to find Malachite in LEGO Fortnite
Malachite is a green-colored stone that can be found on the cliffs of snowy mountains in the Frostlands biome in LEGO Fortnite. The Frostland biome is a region where you'll incur cold and freezing damage, so it is best to prepare before visiting this location. I recommend equipping Trinkets and Totems like Inner Fire and Regeneration Charm. Similarly, you can also consume items like Spicy Burger and Spicy Pepper to resist Cold damage in-game.
Malachite deposits can be identified by their distinctive green color. Check the image above to see how they look in-game. Keep in mind that you can only store up to 30 Malachite pieces in each inventory slot, so ideally you want to keep an empty bag while farming. However, you can't break a Malachite deposit with any ordinary tool. You will have to craft a Epic Pickaxe and here's how to do it.
How to craft an Epic Pickaxe in LEGO Fortnite
To make an Epic Pickaxe, start by upgrading your Crafting Bench to Epic rarity. Once that's done, craft eight pieces of Obsidian Slab and five pieces of Frostpine Rod. Both of these are processed materials so you'll need raw items like Obsidian (from Lava caves in Dry Valley) and Frostpine (from harvesting Trees in the Frostlands biome. When you have both items, simply visit a Crafting Bench and select the Epic Pickaxe to craft one. After obtaining this tool, visit the cliffs and mountaintops in the Frostlands biome to find Malachite.
How to make Malachite Slab in LEGO Fortnite
Malachite Slab is a required resource for Village Upgrades and for crafting certain Charms and Totems. After obtaining Malachite, you need to process the raw resource by building a Stone Breaker utility machine in any Village. Every piece of Malachite processes one piece of Malachite Slab. I recommend building several Storage Chests to stow these resources after farming and processing them.
