Let’s start by making the rods ourselves. To make knotroot rods in the game, you will need to find knotroots to make them. Apart from that, you will need some resources like wood and granite to build a Lumber Mill. Follow the steps below to learn how to make the knotroot rods.

Find Knotroot & Build a Lumber Mill

You cannot make knotroot rods without finding knotroots. The knotroots are found only in the caves of LEGO Fortnite. You can then build an uncommon forest axe to farm the knotroots. Grab some weapons and a knight shield before you go knotroot farming.

Once you gather up the knotroots, you will need another thing before you make the knotroot rods. To make resources like knotroot rods or planks, you must build a Lumber Mill. So, after you find the knotroots, build that first.

To build a Lumber Mill, you need 8 wood and 15 granite. Once you have the resources, press the Build button (Q on PC, Circle on PS, and B on Xbox). Select the white machine with a big cog wheel in the middle and place it on the ground.

Now that you have built a Lumber Mill and collected knotroot from the caves, it’s time to move on.
