How to Use the Force in Fortnite

Push, Pull or Throw your enemies by wielding the Force in Fortnite.

Fortnite’s latest event, ‘Find the Force,’ now allows players to harness the power of the Force and become either a Jedi Knight or a Sith Lord on the game’s island.

In the Star Wars universe, the Force is a special power that enables some characters to do incredible things, like move objects with their minds and sense danger before it happens.

You can now use some of these abilities in Fortnite, but first, you must know how to obtain them.

How to Get Force Abilities in Fortnite

To get Force abilities in Fortnite, train with a Jedi Knight or Sith Lord at Rift Gates. Gates only appear on the map when you’re nearby.

After training, you’ll be awarded a Lightsaber of the same color with Force abilities. Gates appear in colors depending on their trainers:

  • Anakin Skywalker (blue)
  • Darth Maul (red)
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi (green)

Also, players can get three different skills, but learning one will entirely depend on which type of Rift Gate you train at.

How to Use the Force in Fortnite

To use the Force in Fortnite, you must have the Lightsaber in your hand. Then you will need to hold the block button first and then hold down the melee button.

  1. Block:
    • PlayStation: L2
    • Xbox: LT
    • PC: Right-Mouse Button
  2. Melee
    • PlayStation: R2
    • Xbox: RT
    • PC: Left-Mouse Button
If you pick up a Lightsaber from a killed opponent, you will not have the option to use the Force. Players can only use it if they have trained at a Rift Gate.

All Fortnite Force Abilities

There are three different Force abilities, and obtaining them will depend on which type of Rift you trained at:

  • Anakin Skywalker Force Pull
    • Force Pull will drag any players or objects in your surroundings towards you, allowing for easy melee hits.
  • Darth MaulForce Throw
    • Force Throw will lift up four rocks and any surrounding objects and send them as projectiles in the direction you are facing.
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi – Force Push
    • Force Push will propel any players or objects away from you, allowing you to create distance to heal or escape.

Additionally, all Lightsabers will come with Force Jump, allowing you to double jump while in the air and Force Speed giving you increased movement speed.
