Here is everything coming in Fortnite in the Star Wars collaboration event on May the 4th!

Star Wars in LEGO Fortnite: Rebel Adventure

A new Rebel Village is your next destination in LEGO Fortnite. Hold off on exploring the Empire wreckage for now. Your Rebel friends need you! After you investigate the crash, you’ll score some super-zoom Macrobinoculars. Use them to find the hidden Rebel Village on “Star Wars Island.” This ramshackle hideout needs your help to transform into a true Rebel base! You can upgrade the village by Level 10 by completing objectives like supplying resources and constructing Rebel buildings!

In this update, you also get a LEGO Pass. Level up your LEGO Pass: Rebel Adventure alongside the Rebellion! Earn awesome rewards like Star Wars building sets and decorations for your in-game world. You can also instantly snag the epic Chewbacca Outfit by upgrading to the Pass’ Premium track.

To do these quests, you will need enough infantry. That is why the Rebellion is here with some new weapons. But before that, add Plastoid to your inventory and unlock the Rebel Workbench. Here are the weapons coming with the LEGO Fortnite Star Wars update:

  • LIGHTSABERS: You can get the Lightsaber by saving villagers in the game. Collect as many lightsabers as you want and dictate your path.
  • Bowcaster: Launches a quarrel that deals damage and then explodes in the area. Unlock the recipe for the Bowcaster by adding Durasteel to your inventory.
  • DL-44: Unlock the recipe for the DL-44 by adding Durasteel to your inventory.
  • E-11: Standard-issue blaster for Imperial Stormtroopers. Unlock the recipe for the E-11 by adding Scrap Durasteel to your inventory.
  • Thermal Detonator: The bounty hunter’s detonator of choice! This thrown explosive affects a wider area than Dynamite.

Save Chewbacca in Fortnite Battle Royale

Apart from the LEGO Fortnite quests, the Battle Royale also has some tasks for you. Rescue Millennium Falcon co-pilot Chewbacca to complete your task. Once you save him, he will follow you into battle with his trusty Bowcaster. Find him captured in the Imperial Roadblock to rescue him. You will also get your own Wookiee Bowcaster once you save Chewbacca. If you find Imperial Chests in the Imperial Roadblock, loot them to get these Bowcaster, too.

Not only that. Darth Vader and his Stormtrooper squad are blasting back to the BR Island in their Lambda Shuttle. For each match, they’ll land in one of three designated zones. Take down Vader in an epic fight, and claim his lightsaber as your prize! Wield the power of the dark side – block incoming blasts, carve through enemies with lightsaber swings, and hurl it at your foes! The E-11 Blasters also return with the Stormtroopers.

If you complete Battle Royale’s Star Wars Quests, you will get a Battle Pass Level Up for completing five of these Quests and the AWR Pack Back Bling for completing ten.
