Star Wars skins and lightsabers return

May 4 is a huge day in the Star Wars calendar and Fortnite has a long history of crossovers with the franchise – so it’s no surprise to see another celebration following the v20.30 update.

As well as bringing Lightsabers back into the loot pool and featuring old Star Wars skins in the item shop, there will be a special set of May 4th challenges with a banner reward.

Klombos are back!

Klombos were an instant hit when they debuted on the island in Chapter 3 Season 1, but they mysteriously disappeared at the start of Season 2, leaving many players disappointed.

Fortunately, the beloved giant dinosaur is returning after the v20.30 update! Just don’t make them angry…

Tilted Towers has been destroyed

While fans celebrate the return of Klombo, a fan-favorite location has met its demise. Yes, Tilted Towers has finally been destroyed as part of the battle between the Imagined Order and The Seven.

There’s just rubble in its place now, which doesn’t bode well for this POI’s future. Enjoy it while you still can – even if it is a bit of a wasteland.

A new Anime Legends bundle

According to Fortnite leaker ShiinaBR, there will be an ‘Anime Legends’ bundle in the store at some point in the two weeks following this update, alongside an Omega Knight outfit and a ‘Blunder’ bundle.

While the ‘Anime Legends’ bundle could contain more original anime-styled Fortnite characters, we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it’s the long-rumored Attack on Titan crossover.

More weekly challenges and Resistance Quests

There will be even more weekly Fortnite challenges and Resistance Quests added following the v20.30 update, which offers the perfect chance to stock up on XP for your Battle Pass.

As Fortnite is now entering the final weeks of the current season, these quests will probably offer teasers for what we can expect from the rumored finale event.

Fortnite update 20.30 bug fixes
