The classic blue and green lightsaber that Luke carries in the initial Star Wars trilogy arrives in Fortnite. Players can find these sabers in the Imperial Chests as well as regular chests.
Darth Vader’s Red Lightsaber Unvaulted
While players are on their quests as a committed Rebel soldier, Darth Vader is running a campaign on the other end of the Island. Defeat Vader to collect his saber and swing it to block incoming fire or throw it at your opponent like a boomerang.
