All Star Wars weapons in Fortnite for Skywalker Week
- Darth Vader's Lightsaber
- Luke's Blue Lightsaber
- Luke's Green Lightsaber
- E-11 Blaster Rifle
- Luke Skywalker’s X-34 Landspeeder
The following few Fortnite Star Wars weapons are available for the Skywalker Week celebration lasting from Nov. 1–8, 2022.
We've gained a few coloured lightsabers but lost those of Kylo Ren, Obi-Wan, and Mace Windu that were introduced during this year's May 4th celebrations.
What's new, though, is the addition of Luke Skywalker’s X-34 Landspeeder. More on that in a bit.
How to get the new Fortnite Star Wars skins - Luke, Leia, and Han Solo
The latest set of Fortnite Star Wars skins brings some fan-favourites back, adding new styles to each. Available individually or as bundles through the in-game shop, you'll need V-Bucks to add these to your collection.
How do I get Luke Skywalker's X-34 Landspeeder in Fortnite? -X-34 Landspeeder location
New for Skywalker Week, it's possible to loot Luke Skywalker's X-34 Landspeeder in Fortnite. This rapid land mount can only be found via the unvaulted Junk Rift item.
You can find this on the ground, in chests, and in the new Imperial chest. No matter how you come across one, crack the bottle open to rip a tear in the sky and be in the with the chance of seeing the X-34 Landspeeder drop down.
Where do I find a lightsaber in Fortnite? - How to get lightsabers in Fortnite
The Skywalker Week event in Fortnite isn't quite the same as the May 4th on that came earlier in the year. Because of that, the way you get lightsabers in Fortnite has changed slightly.
Last time, it was easy enough to just find each and every available Fortnite lightsaber in chests and random loot drops. This time, however, there are a few different ways.
How to get Darth Vader's lightsaber in Fortnite
One that hasn't changed is the big bad himself - Darth Vader. Like last time, you can only get Darth Vader's lightsaber by beating him in battle. To do that, just watch for where his ship lands as you ride the battle bus at the beginning of the match.

Then, when you're ready, fight the guy. If you manage to beat him and his defending stormtroopers, you'll be able to pick up Darth Vader's lightsaber. It can block bullets, swing for big damage, and be slung like a boomerang for ranged damage, too. It's powerful.
How to get Luke's lightsaber in Fortnite
Luke's lightsaber can be found on the ground and in regular chests like any other high-tier loot, but there's another way: Imperial Chests. These are going to be rare finds, but tracking one down guarantees you'll either get Luke's Green Lightsaber or Luke's Blue Lightsaber as a reward.
Where is the E-11 Blaster Rifle in Fortnite?
Back for a second run is the E-11 Blaster Rifle - an iconic gun Stormtroopers just love to miss with. For Skywalker Week, there's a new way to get it - Imperial Chests.
This iconic weapon can be found in three different ways - either bought from a Stormtrooper for 100 bars, found around the island on the ground or in chests like any other weapon, or looted from an Imperial Chest.
Paired with a bought duplicate, it's possible to dodge the overheat mechanic you run into when firing this unlimited-ammo weapon for too long by simply switching out to another.
Where are Stormtroopers in Fortnite? - Fortnite Stormtrooper locations
You could also find Stormtrooper NPCs sprawled across the Fortnite map. These Stormtrooper checkpoints had two guards wandering around. As they're each equipped with Mythic E-11 Blaster Rifles, you'll want to avoid accidentally running them over with your car, tank, or battle bus - they'll likely deal a lot of damage if you anger them.
We've marked the three Stormtrooper Checkpoints on there for you to check out, based on where they used to spawn. As a word of warning, though, you were best off heading for the one further away from the battle bus. They're popular locations, and getting into a fight around there always ended up as a question of who manages to buy an E-11 Blaster Rifle first.
When will Fortnite Star Wars weapons come back?
May 4, 2022 wasn't the first time Fortnite Star Wars weapons were added to the game, and it wasn't the last
That's because three new Star Wars skins were added to Fortnite on November 1, 2022: Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Leia Organa. They're in to celebrate Skywalker week, and while a week likely isn't enough time to bring Star Wars back into the game full-force (get it?) Epic Games could very well surprise us.
That's it for our look at the Fortnite Star Wars weapons from the May 4th event! Why not consider trying out the new Fortnite gyro controls added to the PC and PlayStation versions recently? In some situations, they're much faster than a traditional thumbstick aiming.
