Fortnite is one of the largest games in the current gaming landscape and it is understandable that the developer of it called Epic Games would take the advantage of that with the major partnerships. One of the instances came previously with the Thanos tie-in with Avengers and currently ongoing is a special Star Wars event connected to the newest release of Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. With this event came the inclusion of lightsabers and this page consists of the guide that will tell you go to win a fight against a lightsaber in Fortnite.
Lightsabers are considered as one of the most powerful weapons in all of the Star Wars universe, that is why only a select few can actually wield them. The level of the power has been carried to the game as well, making them real killing machines when you get the hands on them. While they are able to be obtained in the game, they are not the easiest weapons to find in Fortnite, however, so you more than often will find yourself on the other end of the blade and need a way to win against them.
There are clearly some method to actually win against someone holding a lightsaber, just like with every weapon in the game, as skill plays a large part in everything. However, there is a way that you can follow that will give you a distinct advantage over anybody holding a lightsaber.
This way requires you to have a pump-action shotgun, as that kind of shotgun may not be as fast as the others, but it is able to take down an enemy with full health with a well timed headshot. Some people think that this strategy would work best if you are moving around to avoid being hit, but instead it is the best to stand completely still. First of all, you need to get the thing out of the way. Just because you see someone is running towards you with a lightsaber, does not mean you are immediately going to die. All that you need to do is to make sure that you are carrying a pump shotgun with you and wait for the enemy to come right at you and when they go to swing, shoot the pump-action shotgun right at their head for the one hit kill. You need to make sure that you actually connect with the shot in order to take the enemy down, but this thing should work as a way to take them down before they are able to get a hit on you.
There are three ways that you are able to use if you want to take down someone with a lightsaber, such as flanking the enemy or having an old fashioned lightsaber duel if both of you have one, but the pump-action shotgun is definitely your best choice in case you want to end the confrontation quickly.
