The E-11 Blaster Rifle from Star Wars is back in Fortnite for a new event collaboration. Here’s how to get your hands on the E-11 Blaster Rifle, including all known Stormtrooper locations.

A new Star Wars crossover has gone live in Fortnite, bringing Darth Vader back alongside Stormtroopers, lightsabers, and other iconic elements.

If you’re looking for the E-11 Blaster Rifle in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, here’s where you’ll find it on the island.

How to get E-11 Blaster Rifle in Fortnite

In Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, you can get Star Wars’ E-11 Blaster Rifle by defeating Stormtroopers or searching inside Imperial Chests at Darth Vader’s landing sites.

Stormtroopers can be found at the Stormtrooper Checkpoints around the map, and they’ll shoot you on sight, so be wary. In previous Star Wars collabs, players could purchase the Mythic weapon from Stormtroopers, but that’s not the case in 2024.

You can find Stormtroopers in these locations in Chapter 5 Season 2.

Fortnite’s Stormtrooper Checkpoints can be found along the roads where Imperial Stormtroopers have set up barricades. Additionally, Darth Vader can land at the northernmost location, so make sure you keep an eye on his ship when you’re in the Battle Bus to follow him.

Expect these Stormtrooper Checkpoints to be extremely busy for the first few days of the Star Wars crossover event. Make sure you loot up before heading there to complete Star Wars Quests.

Star Wars E-11 Blaster Rifle in Fortnite explained

The E-11 Blaster Rifle is a Mythic Assault weapon in Fortnite, and it was first introduced during the Star Wars crossover in Chapter 2 Season 5. It’s very similar to the First Order Blaster Rifle.

It has a fire rate of 4.75 and deals 30 damage with each shot. While it has unlimited ammo, it can overheat, which prompts a small cooldown period of 2 seconds. As a Stormtrooper weapon, it isn’t very accurate, but you only need to hold down the Fire button to use it. It’s powerful at short and mid ranges but can be blocked by lightsabers which were also unvaulted with the latest update.

That’s all you need to know to get the returning E-11 Blaster. For more Fortnite content, check some of the following guides:
