The Spyglass is one of the latest items introduced in LEGO Fortnite’s Gone Fishin’ update. It’s definitely a useful one to have, regardless of your progress in the game.

Unlike some in-game items, there’s actually a specific requirement you need to fulfill to access the Spyglass recipe.

Once you’ve added Glass to your inventory, the recipe for Spyglass will automatically be available. But before you can craft it, as usual, you’ll have to gather all the necessary materials. Below, you’ll find a list of materials needed to make Spyglass.

  • 4 Glass
  • 1 Knotroot Rod

As mentioned earlier, Glass can be obtained by combining Sand and Brightcore. As for the Knotroot Rod, you’ll need to chop Knotroot first inside a cave in the Grasslands biome, then use the Lumber Mill to turn it into a Knotroot Rod.

Once you have all these materials, you can craft the Spyglass by interacting with your Crafting Bench and selecting the option. And there you go. Now, you can use it to check our faraway places without risking yourself in danger.
