Epic Games' latest crossover with Star Wars allows fans to double jump across the island.
Despite Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4's heist theme, Star Wars once again invaded the Battle Royale in update v26.20. Not only can fans unlock the "secret" Ahsoka Tano Battle Pass skin and matching cosmetics, but they can also get their hands on a Lightsaber.
Unlike the first Fortnite x Star Wars collaboration of 2023, players no longer have the option of three Lightsabers. Now, only one exists on the island, and unfortunately, it is the weakest of them all. Although players cannot throw objects or pull enemies toward them anymore, they can still use the available Force abilities to their advantage, including the double jump.
Here's a breakdown of how to double jump in Fortnite.
How to Double Jump in Fortnite
To double jump in Fortnite, players must first obtain a Lightsaber from Ahsoka Tano. Lightsabers in Fortnite not only allow players to push objects or players away, but they also grant the power to double jump and sprint faster.
When you want to double jump, take out your Lightsaber and double tap the jump button on your keyboard or controller. The boosted movement makes pushing or escaping teams much easier and quicker.
Fortnite Lightsabers: Where to Find
To find Fortnite Lightsabers, players must encounter a special Star Wars Rift Gate. The rifts appear on the map throughout a match, marking the exact location of Ahsoka Tano's Jedi Training. Travel to the rifts, train with Ahsoka, and emerge with a Lightsaber and Force abilities.
There are plenty of Star Wars Rift Gates throughout a single match, so fans will have ample opportunities to get their hands on a Lightsaber.
When Do Lightsabers Leave Fortnite?
Lightsabers leave Fortnite when update v26.30 goes live. Although the date for the next update is still unconfirmed, we expect v26.30 to drop on Tuesday, Oct. 10 as Fortnitemares 2023 takes over the Battle Royale.
Once the Halloween-inspired changes come to the island, Lightsabers will disappear, likely until the next Star Wars collaboration in 2024.
