Obsidian is one of the most tricky materials to gather in LEGO Fortnite, but it’s essential to upgrade your village. Here’s everything you need to know to farm Obsidian and where to find it during Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1.
Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 introduced LEGO Fortnite, the new game mode that gathered almost 2.5 million players in less than four days of its release. With mechanics heavily inspired by Minecraft, LEGO Fortnite invites users to build their own villages and upgrade their buildings with materials they can farm in procedurally generated maps.
These materials are essential to ensure the survival of players since they are also used to upgrade tools and weapons that help them get through long nights or expeditions in LEGO Fortnite. Obsidian is a key material to get for certain machines and village upgrades, but it can be difficult to find since it only spawns in a specific location.
If you’re looking to farm Obsidian in LEGO Fortnite, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about it in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1.
LEGO Fortnite: All Obsidian locations
In LEGO Fortnite, Obsidian can be found in the Dry Valley biome, inside Lava Caves. Some players have confirmed that the northern area of the desert spawns more Lava Caves, and others say that these caves are most common right in the middle of the biome.

Once you find a Lava Cave, you’ll discover pieces of Obsidian around its crevices and sometimes on the cave ceiling. It’s best if you bring some sort of light source to identify Obsidian, since they have a shiny texture that will help you spot it easily.
LEGO Fortnite: How to farm Obsidian
Farming Obsidian in LEGO Fortnite can be tricky, especially if you are just starting to build your village. To get this material, you’ll need first to make sure you’ll survive your expedition to a Lava Cave, which can be quite toasty and will make you lose hearts quickly.
You can get prepared to face the heat with Cool-Headed Charms, and you can also pack some Snowberry Shakes to use once you enter the Lava Cave. These items will give you at least ten minutes of heat resistance before their effect will wear off.
After you make sure you have what you need to survive the Lava Cave, you’ll need to craft a Rare Pickaxe (or above) to farm Obsidian. You can also get the Obsidian that you find in the ceiling by using Grapplers or by building stairs near them so you can reach it.
