Do you want a lightsaber at Fortnite? Now, you have the opportunity. And in this guide, we’ll tell you where to find it and how to use it.
The Fortnite Winterfest is just around the corner, but we’re in the heart of the Fortnite Star Wars crossover. As part of this, Epic Games has added a lot of new challenges based on “Star Wars”, and added new game features for this event, including a lightsaber.
How to get a lightsaber at Fortnite
As we mentioned above, it’s not easy to get a lightsaber. You need to find it.
Light swords can be found while looking for blue Star Wars chests. They are unique to the event and have not been seen in Fortnite before. Here’s a picture so you know what you’re looking for:
In one of these special Star Wars chests in Fortnite, you will find four lightsabers. Each of them has its own color, and their names refer to the characters in the “Star Wars” that possessed it.
For example, here you can find a red sword that looks like the lightsaber of Kylo Ren, as well as a purple Mace Windu.
How to use a lightsaber in Fortnite
Now that you have a lightsaber to pass the Star Wars challenges, you need to use a lightsaber to deal and block damage.
To block incoming damage, simply press and hold the Aim button. On Xbox One, it’s LT, PS4 – L2, Switch – ZL, PC – RMB.
To attack with your lightsaber, you need to get closer to the target and press and hold the fire/attack button to deal damage. This is RT/R2/ZR/LMB.
