Where to Find Lightsabers in Fortnite
Lightsabers have been temporarily added for the next week in honor of Star Wars Day, May the 4th. They are available in Fortnite starting from May 4th for a week, and in that time, players can complete the May The 4th Quests. Players can find these in various places as you would normally find any other weapon. They are in normal and Rare Chests:
They can also be found as floor loot in buildings and outside, near trees and rocks:
Lightsabers make great close combat weapons, but they can also be used to block oncoming fire:
Players can also dodge and roll while performing the block move:
Be warned though, the lightsabers do not block every single shot aimed at you, and you still have to watch your back! They are not the best at blocking shots from an SMG or a heavy sniper.
Good luck and May the Fourth be with you!
