With a new dose of Star Wars items landing on the island, you may be wondering how to unlock the Sith Apprentice Lightsaber in Fortnite. The beloved fantasy weapon only lands in the game for very short amounts of time, so you'll need to be quick.
On top of that, you'll need a lightsaber to complete many of the new Star Wars-themed quests that grant you access to new skins and loot. Therefore, knowing where to find a lightsaber in the first place is crucial.
How to unlock the Sith Apprentice Lightsaber in Fortnite
To unlock the Sith Apprentice Lightsaber in Fortnite, you'll need to come across a specific sub-section of Force holograms across the island. These are denoted on the mini-map of your HUD via new icons showing the Force ability each one unlocks.
For the Sith Apprentice Lightsaber in particular, you'll need to look for a Force hologram of Darth Maul. Interact with it using your platform's action button, and you'll be pulled into a cutscene as you're transported to a training room in a galaxy far, far away.
