The Star Wars event is taking over Epic Games’ hit Battle Royale. Along with some exciting character skins, there is also the addition of the Force. Here’s how to find and acquire Fortnite Force Powers.
The biggest twist in the new Star Wars event is the addition of both Sith and Jedi-themed supernatural abilities. These can be acquired during a match of the battle royale mode. Only one player in a given team can claim Force Powers from a single hologram, so teams will have to find multiple in order to equip their whole team with Lightsabers and Force Powers.
Want to know more before you drop into your next match? Here’s our guide to finding and using the different Lightsabers and Force Powers in the new Fortnite event.
How to find Force Powers Fortnite
Shortly after the match starts, players will be able to see three different sigils on their map. Each is related to a different Star Wars prequel Jedi or Sith you can learn powers from. The green sigil is Obi-Wan, the blue is Anakin and the red is Darth Maul. These sigils denote a hologram with each of the respective Star Wars characters depicted.
Approaching the hologram will let you accept the character’s training. After a short delay, the player that accepted will enter a rift that appears before emerging moments later equipped with a Lightsaber and their new Force Powers. The Force Power and the associated abilities are all tied to the Lightsaber, meaning you have to have it equipped to use an of them.
Every Lightsaber gives the player an enhanced sprint, the ability to double jump and air dodge, and a unique Force Power based on a different character. These are the characters who appear at Rift Gates and what their Force Power does:
- Anakin Skywalker – Force Pull: Pull objects and enemies in front of you towards yourself, making it easy to hit them with the Lightsaber
- Darth Maul – Force Throw: Throw objects around you towards a spot of your choice, dealing damage to enemies hit.
- Obi-wan Kenobi – Force Push: Push objects and enemies in front of you away, creating space for you to fight or flee.
