Never a bad time to have the Force by your side, Fortnite Battle Royale v22.30 celebrates the arrival of the Original Trio of Star Wars™ Heroes — Luke Skywalker™, Leia Organa™, and Han Solo™ — for Skywalker Week.
During Skywalker Week, take up Luke Skywalker’s lightsabers from A New Hope and Return of the Jedi, drop his X-34 Landspeeder on opponents, and once again shoot with the Stormtroopers’ signature weapon. Also, pick up the Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo Outfits in the Item Shop starting now!
Wield Lightsabers and More in Skywalker Week
Skywalker Week runs until November 8, 2022, at 9 AM ET. Complete special Quests for XP as you use the Star Wars items available during this time:
Luke’s Blue Lightsaber (ANH) and Luke’s Green Lightsaber (ROTJ)
Open Imperial Chests and inside you’ll find Luke’s Blue Lightsaber from A New Hope and Luke’s Green Lightsaber from Return of the Jedi! These lightsabers can also be found from the ground and regular Chests.
Unvaulted Darth Vader’s Lightsaber
Darth Vader has begun another campaign for the Island. Like with his last visit, defeat him to collect his dropped lightsaber! In addition to swinging it, use Darth Vader’s Lightsaber to block incoming fire and throw it boomerang-style at enemies.
Unvaulted E-11 Blaster Rifle
Stormtroopers are back on the Island too. As with this year’s May the 4th celebration, exchange Bars for one of their E-11 Blaster Rifles! You can also find E-11 Blaster Rifles from the ground, Imperial Chests, and regular Chests.
Unvaulted… Junk Rift?
The Junk Rift is unvaulted for Skywalker Week. But what’s the Junk Rift got to do with Star Wars? This week, there’s a chance it can drop Luke Skywalker’s X-34 Landspeeder! Find Junk Rifts from the ground, Imperial Chests, and regular Chests.
