How to Get a Lightsaber in LEGO Fortnite

LEGO Fortnite players can get a Lightsaber by clearing out an Empire bunker. These bunkers are located in the separate Star Wars area that players travel to after the Star Destroyer crashes in their main world.

Players can scope out nearby Empire bunkers by using their Macrobinoculars given to them before entering the separate biome. The bunkers are marked with giant red Empire symbols, and there should be several nearby the Rebel Base.

The Empire bunkers feature giant steel doors built into the landscape and are essentially giant caves. Players will need to upgrade the Rebel Base to village level six to receive Code Clearance and unlock the bunker doors. Less patient players can use Boom Barrels but will need at least three to get through the entire base.

The bunkers are sectioned-off caves with Stormtroopers and other Empire personnel in little camps. Each section is blocked by a giant red laser door, which will disappear once all enemies in the section have been defeated. Each section can have around a dozen enemies, so come prepared to fight a few dozen in each bunker.

After clearing the last section, the final room of the bunker will contain a glowing red chest. Search the red chest to receive a colored Lightsaber along with some crafting resources. The exit is next to the chest.

Lightsabers can come in red, blue, and green colors. Lightsabers cannot break and do not need to be repaired, but will need to recharge if the meter becomes empty.
