How to launch Kinetic Ore with a Star Wars weapon in Fortnite

To launch Kinetic Ore with a Star Wars weapon in Fortnite, you will first need to track down either a Lightsaber, or a DC-15 Blaster. We have a whole guide on where to find Star Wars weapons in Fortnite, but basically, you'll need to wait for lightsabers to spawn on the map.

These can be seen on your main map, and come in green, blue or red variants. Go to the spawn point shown on your map and interact with the character found there to get a Lightsaber (as well as some awesome Force powers).

The DC-15 Blaster is a little bit harder to track down, as they mostly spawn in Republic Chests. Here's where you can find Republic chests:

  • On the road west of Slappy Shores
  • On the road southwest of Frenzy Fields
  • On the road north of Shattered Slabs

Once you have tracked down either of these weapons, your next stop is Shattered Slabs. This is where you'll find Kinetic Ore, pictured below:

Just walk up to Kinetic Ore, and attack it until it starts glowing purple. After a short delay, it will fire off in the opposite direction. You will need to do this twice to complete the challenge.


Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist.

Rewards for launching Kinetic Ore with a Star Wars weapon in Fortnite
