Fortnite: How To Learn Force Abilities At Rift Gates

If you’re diving into Fortnite‘s Find the Force event, you’ll be greeted with a solid selection of quests to complete on your way to unlocking all of the new Star Wars-themed cosmetics in the reward track. One of these asks you to learn Force abilities at rift gates in different matches, but it doesn’t exactly explain how you can make that happen. Luckily, we’ve got everything you need to know about learning Force abilities at rift gates here.

How to learn Force abilities at rift gates in Fortnite

The first step to learning Force abilities is to actually find rift gates. These are placed randomly in each match, but there’s a shortcut to finding them: They’ll always appear on your mini-map as colorful symbols, each one with a different color that indicates which beloved Star Wars character you’ll encounter there. With this in mind, it may help to look for them as you approach the ground fresh off the Battle Bus.

When you visit whichever one of the rift gates you choose, you’ll find a hologram of the corresponding character you can speak to and learn their Force abilities. You’ll be transported through the rift gate briefly before reappearing with a new lightsaber and your awesome Force abilities.

Each of the three characters you can speak to at these rift gates offers unique lightsabers and Force abilities. Due to the fact that these Jedi and Sith weapons and powers will be highly coveted, you can expect to run into company frequently when trying to access them, so you may not always be able to get the exact one you want. However, here are each character’s symbol color and Force abilities to help you decide which ones you want to target.

  • Anakin Skywalker (Blue Symbol) – Pull objects and opponents toward you.
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi (Green Symbol) – Push objects and opponents away from you.
  • Darth Maul (Red Symbol) – Lift objects and throw them at opponents or structures.

If your goal is only to complete the quest associated with the rift gates, keep in mind that you need to visit the gates across three different matches. That being said, you can visit the same character in each match if you have a favorite whose lightsaber or abilities appeal to you more.
