LEGO Fortnite is all about dropping into a diverse sandbox, gathering resources, and surviving. To build essential structures and tools you’ll need important materials such as Knotroot, so here’s how to get Knotroot in LEGO Fortnite.



Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 has been transformative for the game. Besides adding new content to the Battle Royale, season Underground brought with it multiple new modes including Fortnite Festival, Rocket Racing, and the Minecraft-inspired LEGO Fortnite.

So here’s how to get Knotroot in LEGO Fortnite.

LEGO Fortnite: How to get Knotroot

To get Knotroot in LEGO Fortnite, you’ll have to venture into caves and find twisted roots sticking out of rock faces. Hacking down these roots with an Uncommon Forest Axe will provide you with Knotroot. Not all roots you’ll discover inside caves are Knotroots, so be on the lookout for roots that are dark grey in color.

Knotroot can be found inside caves in LEGO Fortnite.

As for discovering caves, try to spot large piles of rocks located in the distance as they could be cave entrances. It’s important to remember that Knotroot cannot be found on the surface, so you’ll have to head into underground caves.

You’ll need Knotroot to create Knotroot Rods that are used for upgrading your tools, weapons, and even the crafting bench itself.
