Known for its numerous crossover events with various franchises, Fortnite has now unveiled another Star Wars special in celebration of Star Wars Day on May 4.
Unlike its previous Star Wars collaboration, that went live in November and featured OG trio Luke, Leia and Han Solo, the new Find The Force event has added a few characters from the meme-worthy prequels.
Sadly, Jar Jar Binks is not part of the new skin line-up, but Anakin, Padmé, and Darth Maul have all been unveiled for the battle royale. Here’s how to unlock them all…
How to get the Anakin and Padmé skins in Fortnite
As often happens with much sought after skins, you can unlock Anakin and Padmé by purchasing their bundles from the Fortnite shop.
The Anakin Skywalker bundle costs 2,100 V-Bucks (around £15) and here’s everything it includes:
- Anakin Skywalker skin (1,500 V-Bucks)
- Jedi Holocron back bling (included with the skin)
- Fusion Cutter pickaxe (500 V-Bucks)
- Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor glider (800 V-Bucks)
- Actis-Class wrap (300 V-Bucks)
- Lightspeed Interceptor emote
If you’re a big Star Wars fan, it’s advisable to purchase the bundle since it will save you some money, even though you can choose to buy the items individually.
Although the Padmé Amidala bundle also comes with a price tag of 2,100 V-Bucks it includes fewer items than the Anakin one:
- Padme Amidala skin (1,500 V-Bucks)
- Japor Snippet back bling (included with the skin)
- Royal Naboo Staff pickaxe (500 V-Bucks)
- Naboo Yacht glider (800 V-Bucks)
In addition to the default style, the Padmé skin comes with the battle-worn Geonosis Combat style.
There’s also the 501st & 212th Battalion Trooper Pack bundle which costs 800 V-Bucks (around £6) and features the 501st Trooper and 212th Trooper skins.
How to get Fortnite Darth Maul & Clone Trooper skins
Darth Maul is probably the most sought after skin from the prequels, owing to his double-ended lightsaber and aggressive combat style that made him a fan favourite.
Sadly, his iconic lightsaber is missing from the rotation of Star Wars lightsabers in Fortnite, as he’s equipped with a halberd instead.
To unlock Darth Maul in Fortnite, you must complete the Force Quests that have just gone live in the game.
While there is a free track to unlock the Darth Maul skin you will first need to purchase the premium rewards track for 1,000 V-Bucks.
To complete these challenges, you need to gain Galactic Reputation or Sith Holocrons, which will in turn allow you to unlock valuable rewards. An exclusive Clone Trooper outfit is also part of the rewards and can be unlocked for free.
Meanwhile, the premium rewards track includes The Coruscant Guard skin, the Wolf Pack Trooper skin, and Ahsoka’s Clone Trooper skin.
