Fortnite is no stranger to lightsabers. Popularized by the Star Wars franchise, these weapons were seen in Fortnite back in 2020 during Star Wars Day on May 4th. However, they were vaulted shortly after and not seen for a while. And according to the information we received with the launch of the Fortnite v20.20 update, there is a high probability that lightsabers will return to Fortnite this year as well.

Based on the information provided by the popular Fortnite data miner HYPEX on chirp, Lightsaber effects have been updated in Fortnite v20.20 update. However, the weapons themselves have not been added to the game files. Given that the next update is scheduled for a day before May 4th, 2022, there is a very high probability that the lightsabers will go live in Fortnite May 3rd.
We’re not really sure how long the lightsabers will be in the game. However, based on our experience with the weapon so far, they could probably stay in Fortnite for a week or two at most. The lightsabers could arrive on May 3rd with the numerous Star Wars Cosmetics and the Stormtrooper NPCwhose files were seen in the Fortnite v20.20 update.
