The prospect of seeing them again in Fortnite: Season 2 Chapter 4 is, therefore, an exciting one. New characters including Anakin Skywalker, Padmé Amidala, Darth Maul, and Clone Troopers have been added to Fortnite as part of the cooperation.
Fortnite: Where to find Lightsabers
Currently, the only way to acquire a Lightsaber in Fortnite is to speak with a Star Wars character. Doing so will transport you through a Rift Gate, where you will be equipped with a Lightsaber and granted access to some impressive Force powers.
Lightsabers were common floor loot in past Star Wars crossovers, but it appears that this is not the case here. Of course, you can also get a Lightsaber by killing an opponent and stealing it.
The Best Guide to Using Lightsabers
To do any damage with a lightsaber in Fortnite, you’ll need to get close to your opponent, making it prudent to always have a rifle on hand as a backup.
Swing the Lightsaber with the’shoot’ button (R2 on PS5) to string together hits for a combo, or use the ‘aim’ button (L2 on PS5) to counter melee assaults or projectiles.
You can pull, push, or throw with the Force after acquiring a Lightsaber through a Rift Gate, depending on who you talked to.
Defending with Lightsaber
When being attacked with a Lightsaber, simply press the ‘aim’ button on your controller or keyboard to block the blow. The Lightsaber is effective against projectiles and close range strikes.
‘Block shots using a Lightsaber’ is a requirement for a few missions, and while it seems complicated, if you time your blocks just so, you’ll breeze through them.
Which Lightsabers from the Star Wars universe can I use in Fortnite?
The Fortnite game features three distinct Lightsabers: the Obi-Wan Darth Maul’s crimson Sith Apprentice Lightsaber, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s green Jedi Padawan Lightsaber, and Anakin Skywalker’s blue Jedi Padawan Lightsaber.
You can acquire each Lightsaber by interacting with the corresponding figure on the map. Talk to Darth Maul if you want to join the dark side and wield a red Sith Apprentice Lightsaber.
