If you’re a fan of both Star Wars and Fortnite, you’re probably thrilled about the current Find the Force event happening in the latter. With new Star Wars-themed cosmetics available in the reward track, gamers are excited to complete all the quests and unlock every single item. One of the quests, however, can be somewhat confusing to complete, as it asks players to learn Force abilities at rift gates in different matches without providing many details. But don’t worry, we have all the information you need to know to complete this challenge with ease.
Finding Rift Gates in Fortnite
The first step to learning Force abilities is to locate the rift gates in Fortnite. While these gates are randomized in each match, they are relatively easy to spot on your mini-map as they will always appear as colorful symbols, each color indicating the beloved Star Wars character you’ll encounter there.
One useful way to find the rift gates is to keep an eye out for them as soon as you jump off the Battle Bus. While this may not give you a guaranteed advantage, it does help to locate the area in advance, rather than trying to find it after the match has begun.
Learning Force Abilities
Once you’ve arrived at the rift gate, approach the hologram of the corresponding Star Wars character. After speaking with them, you will learn their unique Force abilities, and be transported through the rift gate briefly before appearing with your new lightsaber and skills.
You’ll find three different characters at these gates, each offering their unique lightsabers and Force abilities. It’s essential to know what each character has to offer before deciding which one to go for as other gamers will be trying to access them too.
Anakin Skywalker (Blue Symbol)
The Anakin Skywalker rift gate is indicated by a blue symbol and offers the ability to pull objects and opponents towards you.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Green Symbol)
The Obi-Wan Kenobi rift gate is indicated by a green symbol and offers the ability to push objects and opponents away from you.
Darth Maul (Red Symbol)
The Darth Maul rift gate is indicated by a red symbol and offers the ability to lift objects and throw them at opponents or structures.
It’s worth noting that if your goal is just to complete the rift-gate-related quest, you’ll need to visit these gates in three different matches. However, you can always visit the same character in each race if you have a favorite whose abilities or lightsaber you prefer.
