Epic Games is celebrating Star Wars Day in 2022 in a big way: Fortnite Star Wars skins and lightsaber weapons are being unvaulted for the May 4th holiday, with the former being available in the item shop until May 17th. The Fortnite Star Wars skins that will be available in the item shop include every single Star Wars skin that wasn’t part of a Battle Pass, which include the Imperial Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, Boba Fett and Rey outfits.
The full list of Fortnite Star Wars skins being reintroduced to the game starting May 4th are as follows:
- Imperial Stormtrooper
- Kylo Ren
- Zorii Bliss
- Sith Trooper
- Boba Fett
- Fennec Shand
In addition to once again brandishing lightsabers, the trademark weapon of the Jedi (which will come in the Luke Skywalker green, Kylo Ren crossguard red, Mace Windu purple and classic blue varieties), players will also have the chance to wield the E-11 Blaster Rifle, which can be obtained from Chests and even in exchange for Bars from Stormtroopers, who have set up checkpoints all around the island in search of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Stormtroopers will also be the theme of the new Star Wars-themed quests, which will put players through “Stormtrooper training,” and include such tasks as appropriating landspeeders, obtaining “Jedi contraband,” and more. The Fortnite Star Wars-themed quests will reward experience points and ultimately, an Empire Banner.
