Fortnite Battle Royale v26.20 Update: Learn Force Abilities from Ahsoka Tano!

The Fortnite Team

Warrior. Outcast. Rebel. Jedi.

In v26.20, Ahsoka Tano appears on the Battle Royale Island in hologram form, awaiting to train you in the ways of the Jedi. Accept her offer to train you to proceed into a rift, then return to the Island wielding the white Jedi Training Lightsaber! With this lightsaber equipped, use the Force abilities that Ahsoka taught you. 

Fortnite Ahsoka Tano Social

Ahsoka’s not just appearing in hologram form — the Ahsoka Tano Outfit becomes unlockable in the purchasable Chapter 4 Season 4 Battle Pass on September 26 at 9 AM ET! Give your squad hope in even their darkest times. 

A New Day, A New Beginning: Gain Force Abilities

When you encounter a hologram of Ahsoka Tano on the Island, speak to her and accept her offer to train you. You’ll then enter a rift, and exit with a Jedi Training Lightsaber and knowledge of Force abilities! These Force abilities can only be used if you went through Ahsoka’s training and are actively wielding a Jedi Training Lightsaber. Your knowledge of these abilities will last until the end of the match.

Force Abilities from Ahsoka Tano

  • Use the Force to sprint faster and double jump.

  • Use the Force to push objects and players away.

The Ahsoka Tano holograms, Jedi Training Lightsaber, and Force abilities will remain in Battle Royale until v26.30.

Competitive Notes

Rocket Ram in Tournaments

Dive into tournaments with a new, tournament-only version of the Rocket Ram!

In tournaments, the Rocket Ram will only have 3 finite charges until the item automatically disappears from your inventory. The cooldown between uses will be the same as the regular Rocket Ram — as well as other features and values. Choose when to use your charges wisely!

Please note that this alternate version of the Rocket Ram will only be available in tournaments and that the non-tournament Rocket Ram is unchanged.

In Case You Missed It: Sep 20 Hotfix

In a hotfix on September 20, we made the following balance adjustments:

  • Zyg and Choppy's Ray Gun charges and fires faster. 

  • TNTina's Ka-Boom Bow charges, reloads, and recharges faster. 

  • Slurp Juice drops with less quantity, chug wisely! 

  • Havoc Suppressed Assault Rifle has increased damage and faster fire rate. 

  • The Foundation's MK-Seven Assault Rifle has reduced damage and a slightly slower fire rate. 

  • Sticky Grenade Launcher has a slower fire rate and a longer reload time. We've added a cooldown when swapping between two Launchers.  

  • Gunnar’s Stinger SMG deals slightly more damage per bullet with decreased vertical recoil.
