Fortnite: Star Wars Celebrations Are Here and There Are Lightsabers

Officially, May 4 is Star Wars Day, yet considering the slew of Star Wars films and TV shows we’ve seen in recent years, it rarely feels like it’s /not/ Star Wars Day.

On both the battle royale and zero-build maps, you’ll also be able to pick up iconic Star Wars weapons. The E-11 blaster rifle can be acquired by exchanging bars or by looting chests around the island.
