Here’s how to get a lightsaber in Fortnite along with a hint that we could be getting a lightsaber pickaxe.

The Fortnite Star Wars live event at Risky Reels recently concluded. Players lucky enough not to experience any login issues due to amount of players wanting to watch the event were able to use lightsabers, interact with two different questions being asked during the event and more.

The event began with players floating in the air, Geoff Keighley, director J.J. Abrams, and worldwide creative Epic Games director, Donald Mustard, coming off the Star Wars ship. Players could choose which lightsaber they wanted along with what clip they wanted to have played from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Near the end of the event, players were able to use lightsabers, and they are now currently in-game.

The Fortnite lightsabers are a mythic item, and the only way to get them in-game is to get them from the special Star Wars chests that you’ll see scattered around the map. If you do manage to get your hands on a lightsaber, expect moments like these in-game:
