How to get lightsabers in Fortnite? (May 2022)
Getting a lightsaber in Fornite is fairly easy but requires a bit of luck. Like any other loot items found in the game, lightsabers can also be found scattered across the map in the form of loot. They are available as floor loot as well as chest loot. So, you must head to areas that have a high loot capacity especially Titled Towers. With that being said, there are a total of 4 lightsabers available in the game. But, they don’t have any significant difference in stats other than the fact that they are named after a few characters in the franchise. Here are the 4 different lightsabers-
- Obi-Wan’s Lightsaber – Blue
- Mace Windu’s Lightsaber – Purple
- Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber – Green
- Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber – Red
Keep in mind that the lightsaber is a melee weapon and should be used accordingly. You can block incoming damage using the lightsaber which is quite interesting but to deal damage to other opponents, you must get close to them. So, it has its merits and demerits.
