Epic Games are teaming up with the upcoming Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker, to show off an exclusive scene reveal in Risky Reels.

Risky Reels is the in-game location which features a drive-in cinema, and has been used for previous collaborations like the Wreck-It Ralph movie.

On December 7, a new poster was put up in Risky Reels, revealing the date and time for the exclusive scene showing, which will take place as an in-game live event.

When is the Star Wars scene event in Fortnite?

You’ll be able to see the exclusive Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker scene in Fortnite on December 14, at 11am PT /  2pm ET / 7pm GMT.

The date was revealed on a poster and on the Risky Reels screen on December 7, one week before the showing.

It also says “with JJ Abrams”, although it’s unclear what role the filmmaker will have for the event.

This is not the first time Fortnite has collaborated with Star Wars. Recently, they teamed up to release an official Storm Trooper skin to celebrate the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

As part of that event, a massive Star Destroyer ship could also be seen in the sky above the battle royale map.

To watch the exclusive scene at Risky Reels, you’ll simply need to log on to Fortnite on December 14, with “doors opening” 30 minutes before the event goes live.

Like previous in-game events, players will presumably be loaded into an official playlist, where the normal rules of the game don’t apply, so that everyone can see the action unfold in peace.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker premiers in theaters worldwide on December 19. It’s yet another massive collaboration for Fortnite, which has also boasted in-game events and skins for Marvel’s Avengers movies, John Wick and more.

Rocket Launchers are in short supply in Fortnite Season 5, Chapter 2, and there’s one location on the map where you can get not just the explosive weapon, but also a Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle as well. 

Epic Games‘ battle royale game that used to be full of challenges and Battle Pass rewards has seen its system shaken up in Season 5. The arrival of The Mandalorian puts great emphasis on collecting bounties, with NPC characters spread right across the island.

In their hands, as you might expect, is a variety of loot. Some are holding better things than others as well, ranging from Mythic to Epic weapons – and more.

There’s one location where players can actually grab themselves a weapon found nowhere else on the map, though.

One of the first things you need to know is that this cannot be found at a specific POI, but it is close to Slurpy Swamp. Let’s run through how you can get these insane guns in Fortnite Season 5.

Ruckus is holding both of the weapons in Fortnite Season 5.

Where to find Ruckus in Fortnite

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Drop from the Battle Bus near Slurpy Swamp.
  3. Head over to the small compound east of the location, which is right on the waterfront.
  4. Hunt down an NPC called Ruckus.
  5. Take him out and collect the loot, consisting of a Rocket Launcher and Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle.

Here’s where you need to go.

One of the easiest ways to take him down is to build a few structures nearby, and pop your head out to take shots.

Do have in mind that not only will the NPC have more health and a rocket launcher in-hand, but other enemies will also be racing to get the guaranteed loot.
