Are lightsabers still in Fortnite? Fortnite and Star Wars fans want to know!
Previously, Epic Games brought these iconic weapons into Fortnite under a collaboration event with the Star Wars franchise. This was originally done to celebrate the release of the Rise of Skywalker movie and many fans thought they would remain in-game. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case, and they were removed shortly after the Winterfest Event which required players to use them in a challenge.
Thanks to a new tweet by Fortnite, however, it looks like they may be available once again.
Are Lightsabers Still in Fortnite
The lightsabers have returned once more to Fortnite. There are four different kinds:
- Yoda's Green
- Kylo Ren's Red
- Luke Skywalker's Blue
- Mace Windu's Purple
These will only be available for use for a limited time so players should hurry to grab them if they so choose. Those who took part in the Rise of Skywalker event will remember that lightsabers are mythic-quality weapons.
The re-addition of the lightsabers comes just in time for "Star Wars Day" on May 4 this year, alongside similarly themed cosmetics available in the store. Epic Games has yet to confirm an official end date for these weapons, but some players are reporting May 6 as the most plausible.
