A fan-favorite weapon may soon return to Fortnite in Chapter 3 Season 2. The lightsaber melee weapon first appeared during the Star Wars event in 2019. The lightsaber was briefly unvaulted in 2020 from May 2-5 in celebration of Star Wars Day.
Now, a Fortnite leak suggests the lightsaber could return this season. A video posted by LunakisLeaks on Twitter shows the four variations of the lightsaber weapon in a Fortnite game. The video appears to be from Chapter 3 Season 2 based on the IO airships in the background.

The video isn’t concrete evidence that lightsabers will return, but it could mean that Fortnite has a Star Wars crossover event planned for Star Wars Day. Season 2 is expected to end on June 3rd, so there’s plenty of time for a Star Wars update by then. Star Wars Day is May 4th, so players may be able to wield a lightsaber in an upcoming update.
There have been no leaks revealing new Star Wars content, so old Star Wars cosmetics may also be making a return to the shop. Based on the video, the previous lightsaber variants will all return. The lightsabers that appear to be used in the game are Rey’s blue sword, Kylo Ren’s red cross-hilt sword, Luke’s green sword, and Mace Windu’s purple blade.
