Where to find Star Wars weapons in Fortnite
There are currently four Star Wars weapons in Fortnite:
- The DC-15 Blaster
- Green Jedi Padawan Lightsaber
- Blue Jedi Padawan Lightsaber
- Red Sith Apprentice Lightsaber
The DC-15 Blaster can be found in Republic Chests. You can also find it in floor loot, or in regular chests, but they are far less likely to spawn this way due to the increased loot pool. As they're classified as Mythic, be on the lookout for items with a yellow glow.
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
You have to work a little harder to get lightsabers in Fortnite during this Star Wars event, as you need to visit Obi-Wan, Anakin, or Darth Maul and learn force powers from them. Once you do this, a rift will appear, and jumping through it will place a lightsaber in your inventory.
So to get a lightsaber, head to one of the Jedi or Sith icons that appear on your map, like the Darth Maul icon below, then speak with the Star Wars NPC to learn force powers and step through the rift to receive a lightsaber in your inventory.
Keep in mind that if another character gets to a Star Wars NPC first and interacts with them, they will disappear and spawn somewhere else.
The only other current way to get a lightsaber right now seems to be from killing an opponent who has one in their inventory.
Good luck searching for Star Wars weapons in Fortnite!
