Star Wars has collaborated with Fortnite to bring this week’s challenges to players everywhere. One of this week’s challenges right now is to obtain a First Order Blaster Rifle, so we want to explain where you can find these on the map.
Fortnite Blaster Rifle Locations
To find a Fortnite Blaster Rifle, you need to take out some First Order Stormtroopers. This is a simple task if you can manage to find them before other players. Throughout the map are TIE Fighter crash sites, which can be seen on the map below.
Try and equip a weapon prior to heading over to one of these zones, because the Stormtroopers will open fire at you and push on your locations if you get close enough. You can easily take them out from a distance provided you have a decent weapon. When you eliminate a Stormtrooper, they will drop a Blaster Rifle.
The Blaster Rifle has unlimited ammo, but the first shot accuracy is wonky just like in the movies. Overall, these weapons are strong because you can continuously fire shots without worrying about reloading. If you shoot at a player with a lightsaber, watch out because they can reflect the lasers right back at you!
If you hold down the fire button for too long on the Blaster Rifle, it can overheat. So be sure to take a break to let your weapon cooldown after a few shots.
