With Star Wars Jedi: Survivor releasing last week and May 4 just a couple of days away, it's no surprise that Fortnite wanted to get in on the action. There have been Star Wars events in Fortnite around this time for a few years now, and they always find new ways to represent everyone's favorite galaxy.

There's a lot to dig through in this patch, including the new Find the Force quests, so we'll give you the full Fortnite 23.40 patch notes.

Find the Force quests – Fortnite 23.40

Fortnite Find the Force

From now until May 23, 2023, you can complete the Find the Force quests to progress down this exclusive reward track. This is acting a little like a secondary Battle Pass, as there is a free reward track and a premium track, which you can only access by paying 1,000 V-Bucks, which you can buy for $7.99/£6.50 if you don’t already have enough.

Here are all the rewards on offer:

Free reward track:

  • Army of Clones emoticon
  • 1 Battle Pass level
  • The Fall of the Republic loading screen
  • Republic Army Backpack back bling
  • Trooper Formation spray
  • 1 Battle Pass level
  • Kamino’s Finest weapon wrap
  • Lil’ Podracer emote
  • Galactic Roundal spray
  • 1 Battle Pass level
  • Clone Trooper skin

Premium reward track:

  • Sith Probe Droid back bling
  • 1 Battle Pass level
  • Maul’s Malice spray
  • Wolfpack Trooper skin
  • Darth Maul Snarl emoticon
  • 1 Battle Pass level
  • Menacing Presence weapon wrap
  • Ahsoka’s Clone skin
  • Mauls Poleaxe pickaxe
  • 1 Battle Pass level
  • Darth Maul skin

But wait, there’s more! During this event, three sets of quests will be released:

  • “The Force Within” quests are live now
  • “Begun the Clone Wars Have” quests will go live on May 7
  • “Fall of the Republic” quests will go live on May 12

Complete all of the quests in a set and you’ll get a Holocron. Collect all three Holocrons and you’ll get yourself a Sith Infiltrator Glider.

Use the Force – Fortnite 23.40

Fortnite Anakin Skywalker

There are now three characters that you can visit during a match to complete your Force training. Doing so will let you come away with some nifty Force powers and a Lightsaber. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Darth Maul can all be visited, and they’ll each teach you different Force abilities.

You’ll always learn a faster sprit and a double jump ability, but you could also learn:

  • Force Push from Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Force Pull from Anakin Skywalker
  • Force Throw from Darth Maul

Lightsabers and DC-15 Blasters – Fortnite 23.40

Fortnite Republic Chests Cropped

This, of course, means that Star Wars weapons are back in the game. The all-powerful Lightsabers are here, naturally, but with them comes a new type of blaster that hasn’t been seen in Fortnite before, the DC-15 Blaster.

Like the E-11 Blaster, it has infinite ammo, but this is focused on mid-to-long-range combat, with high accuracy and a lower rate of fire.

New Star Wars skins – Fortnite 23.40


Along with everything you can get in Find the Force, there are four new Star Wars skins coming to the item shop for the duration of this event:

  • Anakin Skywalker
  • Padmé Amidala
  • 501st Trooper
  • 212th Battalion Trooper
