The E-11 Blaster Rifle, the weapon of Star Wars’ Imperial Stormtroopers, has arrived in Fortnite for the May the 4th celebration. Here’s where to find all of the Stormtrooper Checkpoints, and how to get your hands on the E-11 Blaster Rifle.

Star Wars Day is almost here, and Fortnite’s 20.30 update looks to celebrate May 4 by bringing back all of the Star Wars skins to the Item Shop, unvaulting Lightsabers, and introducing the new E-11 Blaster Rifle.

Similar to the First Order Blaster Rifle that came before, the E-11 Blaster Rifle has unlimited ammo, deals 30 damage per hit, and has a respectable 4.75 fire rate. You’ll need to get your hands on one to complete the Star Wars Day Quests, but it’s a powerful choice when fighting for a Victory Royale.

While the E-11 Blaster can be found in Chests and on the ground in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, you can guarantee one by purchasing the E-11 Blaster from a Stormtrooper NPC.

Stormtroopers can be found at the Stormtrooper Checkpoints around the map, and you’ll only need to fork out 100 Gold Bars to purchase one of their E-11 Blasters. These new Blasters are Mythic-rarity weapons, so 100 Gold is an extremely reasonable price.

Expect these Stormtrooper Checkpoints to be extremely busy for the first few days of the Star Wars Day celebration, so make sure you loot up before heading there.
