Fortnite Rift Gates are an important part of the new Star Wars crossover event. Being both a great offensive tool and a step in the quests, there's quite a lot to figure out.
In this guide, we'll go over what exactly Rift Gates are, how to find them, and what to do with them once you have spotted them. Though they may take a while to get used to, Rift Gates are worth paying attention to.
What are Fortnite Rift Gates?
Rift Gates are a brand new mechanic brought into Fortnite with the ongoing Star Wars crossover. In this, you have to interact with one of a handful of NPCs taken from the Star Wars universe. This will open up a Rift Gate. As the game progresses, you will spot signs around the map, as shown in the image below.
Unfortunately, everyone else can also see these Rift Gates, so it might make you a target, especially if you are alone. Like the caches or Loot Island, it's dangerous to grab but will make winning later on much easier.
How to learn Force abilities in Fortnite
You learn Force abilities by going up to the mentors at those Rift Gates and interacting with them. The type of Force ability you get will depend on the tutor you learn from. This will grant you a lightsaber that uses that ability as its secondary fire. This means you can effectively use it for the rest of the game and can even have multiple at one time if you are brave enough to activate them.
Though you have to learn Force abilities in different matches as one of the challenges, you don't have to learn different skills, so you can effectively pick out your favourite and keep hunting that down each game.
Now that you know how these work, you may be looking for a little more information on the game. If so, here's how to complete the Star Wars Find the Force quests in Fortnite, all Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 weapons, and the best Fortnite zombie map codes. There is truly so much going on in Fortnite right now!
