Where to find Lightsabers in Fortnite chapter 3 season 2 Locations
Lightsabers can be found around the Fortnite chapter 3 season 2 map by finding the special Star Wars chests called Lightsaber Cubes. From what we’ve seen, and from how lightsabers were found the first time they were in Fortnite, they can’t be found in normal chests, supply drops, Loot Llamas, Loot Sharks, or as floor loot.

Lightsabers are melee weapons which means you’ll need to be close to players in order to inflict damage. The damage is a little different to other items, as it depends on the consecutive strikles.
They will deal 45, 45, 25, 25, 25, 150 damage. A normal strike will deal 45, a spin 25, and a slam will inflict 150 damage. They can also block damage from bullets by holding the aim down sight button. However, you can only block 30 shots before a three-second cooldown begins.
