Streaming superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has aired his complaints with the unpopular lightsabers in Fortnite, urging Epic Games to remove them a few days early.

Part of the strength of Fortnite’s popularity has come from Epic Games’ ability to keep the battle royale fresh with constant updates, while also tapping into the real-world through holiday events and crossovers.

The most recent crossover with popular culture has come in the form of Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, where fans were treated to an in-game trailer event, free cosmetics, and the chance to wield both the lightsabers and blasters. However, even though players may be fans of the iconic movie franchise, the chance to swing Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber hasn’t gone down all that well.

Fortnite gave players to chance to take a side on each side of the Force.

Players have taken issue with the damage they can cause – and the damage they block – and urged Epic to get rid of them just like they did the Infinity Sword. Now, with the Star Wars crossover coming to a close, Ninja has aired his grievances. 

“Dude, just get the f**king lightsabers out of the game man,” Blevins said while streaming alongside Mason ‘Symfunhy’ Lanier. “Like, we had fun but just get them out. “It’s almost two weeks of lightsabers, get them out of the game, we get it. They can block infinite damage basically and they’ve been bugged since they came in.”

He wasn’t finished there though, after being stunned by a death he’d suffered at the hands of someone wielding a lightsaber, Ninja added: “Come on, come on, get them out. They’re fun, they’re great to farm, everyone had their fun and got their challenges in – get them out of here dude.”

Ninja is not the only Fortnite player to call for the specialist weapons to be removed early, however, as plenty of fans aired their concerns back on January 3.

Of course, it’s unlikely that Epic will get rid of them anytime soon seeing as the remaining Star Wars-themed content will be removed on January 7. What’s going after them, though, is anyone’s guess.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
