Where To Find The First Order Blaster Rifle In Fortnite

The First Order has invaded Fortnite, and they have brought their rather nice Blasters with them. Now that the main Star Wars event is over, the Star Wars Challenges have begun. The challenges will give you a chance to engage with Star Wars differently, use Lightsabers, First Order Blasters, and generally have some fun. You can earn a Banner icon, First Order Back Bling, and the Jedi Training emote.

First Order Blaster Rifle Locations

One of the challenges is to deal damage with a First Order Blaster Rifle to either other players or First Order Stormtroopers. To find a First Order Blaster, make your way to one of the points marked on the map above. These are TIE Fighter crash sites and will be swarming with First Order Stormtroopers. When you kill one of the Stormtroopers, they will drop a First Order Blaster Rifle.


You can find the crash sites to the south of Steamy Stacks, another is to the north of Retail Row, to the south of Slurpy Swamp, just to the south-west of Sweat Sands, and to the east of Salty Springs. Be careful, as the First Order Stormtroopers are pretty tough, and they will kill you. You can also take a lot of damage, making you easy pickings for another player if you are unlucky.

Once you have your First Order Blaster Rifles, start fighting. Stormtroopers or other players both count towards the challenge. It is also a three-stage challenge, with an increasing damage requirement at each step, so make sure you kill plenty of enemies.

While you are in the area, don’t forget to raise your banner at the TIE Fighter Crash site for one of the other challenges. If you need help finding a Lightsaber in the game, we also have a guide for that as well.
