Fortnite’s first major update since the Chapter 3 Season 3 update is here, bringing Darth Vader’s Lightsaber, Battle Pass super skins, and Naruto Rivals! skins. Check out the full Fortnite 21.10 patch notes.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is now in full swing after bringing back the Baller and introducing new mechanics like rideable animals. There’s still a ton more content still to arrive, and the 21.10 update brings plenty of new content to the battle royale.

Included in this patch is Darth Vader’s lightsaber and Stormtrooper E-11 Blasters, along with special super skins for four of the Season 3 Battle Pass characters. Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite’s 21.10 update.

Darth Vader’s Lightsaber

The headline addition for Fortnite with this patch is the introduction of Darth Vader’s lightsaber, which Epic claim is a “force to be reckoned with.”

The Sith Lord is trying to take over the island, landing at different locations each match, along with some Stormtroopers for protection. Defeat Vader, and you can pick up his lightsaber, which blocks incoming fire, can be thrown like a boomerang at enemies, and of course, swing at those who dare stand in your way.

On top of that, players can also grab E-11 Stormtrooper Blasters in Imperial Chests at Vader landings sites, or from eliminated soldiers.

Battle Pass Super Styles

Each Fortnite Battle Pass includes brings Super Styles for the exclusive skins, and for Season 3, Evie, Adira, Sabrina Malik, and Stormfarer are all getting special looks titled Platinum Rift, Lapis Slurp, and Auric Blaze.

Players will need to reach Level 140 to start unlocking them.
