How to find Knotroot in LEGO Fortnite

In LEGO Fortnite, Knotroot wood can be found within sturdy, curly vines clinging to cave ceilings and walls. To harvest Knotroot, you’ll need to break these vines using the Uncommon (green) Forest Axe, as the standard white axe lacks the necessary strength.

Knotroot serves as the base material for upgrading your village and crafting stronger weapons than the Common ones. However, crafting a green Forest Axe is a prerequisite before you can effectively farm Knotroot. Here’s how to do it.

Knotroot location in LEGO Fortnite

In LEGO Fortnite, Knotroot is obtained from round vines inside caves, usually in stacks of one or two units. These vines can typically be found within early-game caves in the initial forest biome, so exploring the desert or snow biomes may not be necessary.

Each hit with a green Forest Axe deals three damage to the vines, requiring up to eight hits to break and obtain the Knotroot inside. The common, white Forest Axe is ineffective for gathering Knotroot as it deals no damage to these vines.

If the vines are out of reach, simply build stairs or platforms using regular Wood to reach them. It’s advisable to swing your axe upward first before using your Wood, as the axe’s hitbox is forgiving and often allows you to reach Knotroot that may initially seem out of reach.
