Fortnite Star Wars Day May the 4th challenges and rewards explained

Starting the 3rd of May, you can complete special May the 4th challenges in Fortnite to get XP. If five of the six special quests are completed before the end of the Fortnite Star Wars Day celebrations, you will get the Empire Banner.

Each Star Wars May the 4th quest rewards 30k XP when completed, for a total of 180,000 XP for completing them all. Here are the all May the 4th Star Wars quests:

  • Land at a Stormtrooper Checkpoint, then place top 25 (1)
  • Complete a bounty from a Stormtrooper (1)
  • Block hits using a Lightsaber (10)
  • Damage opponents within 30 meters using the E-11 Blaster Rifle (1,000)
  • Drive a vehicle from Chonker’s Speedway or Logjam Lumberyard to a Stormtrooper Checkpoint (1)
  • Survive storm phases while carrying a Lightsaber (5)

You will need to find a Lightsaber in order to complete a few of these quests. Lightsabers are included in the Star Wars Day update until the event ends.

Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Prowler skin, along with the return of jetpacks and Choppas. As we enter Season 2's final month, it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite. You can also complete Resistance challenges, including collecting signal jammers and finding an energy fluctuation. Don't forget about the Seasonal challenges, which include planting saplings and call an Air Strike on a tank. Meanwhile Victory Crowns and the character collection have returned, along with a new Victory Umbrella to earn.
