LEGO Fortnite Patch 29.40: Full Patch Notes, Star Wars and More

Fortnite is once again gearing up to release a brand new event in the form of Star Wars, and this time around it's looking incredible. 

Here's all the content coming to LEGO Fortnite. 

LEGO Fortnite Patch 29.40: Full Patch Notes, Star Wars and More

The brand update is going to be released on May 3rd, and there's a ton of content coming to LEGO Fortnite. 

Below are all the patch notes. 


Before investigating the Empire crash site, you should check on your Rebel allies. You’ll receive a pair of Macrobinoculars after the crash, which will point you to the Rebel Village! This rinky-dink shelter on “Star Wars Island” needs your help becoming a full-on Rebel headquarters.

The Rebel Village can level up all the way to Level 10. How to level it up? Complete objectives like supplying resources and constructing Rebel buildings! 

If you plan to become a local hero, don’t worry about saying goodbye to your Rebel neighbors anytime soon — the Rebel Village will remain beyond v29.40!

Be warned — the crash of the Empire’s Star Destroyer isn’t the Empire’s end. Instead, the Empire will try to make your world their home. They’ll be surrounding the crash site with camps, and it’s up to you to infiltrate them and take back your world! After spending some time with the Rebels, find these bases with the help of your Macrobinoculars.

You can also make Macrobinoculars yourself. Unlock the recipe by adding Plastoid to your inventory!  

Like the look of Imperial architecture? You can choose not to damage the camps, and keep them and their inhabitants beyond v29.40! The crash site will stay too so you can admire the remains of the Star Destroyer. (Or hey, you can destroy that too.)

Are you civilized, or secretly on the dark side? Whatever your answer, different-colored Lightsabers are waiting for you in your world! You don’t get these in LEGO Fortnite by crafting them. Instead, you’ll unlock yours by helping the Rebels build up their Village! With your Lightsaber in-hand, you can collect even more.

Lightsabers are powerful tools in LEGO Fortnite. In fact, they’re so powerful they need time to recharge after combat. Use them when the time is right!


Don’t just bow out when a foe is near. Defend yourself with these new Star Wars items craftable at a Rebel Workbench:

  • Bowcaster: Launches a quarrel that deals damage then explodes in the area.

    • Unlock the recipe for the Bowcaster by adding Durasteel to your inventory.

  • DL-44: There's no substitution for a good blaster at your side.

    • Unlock the recipe for the DL-44 by adding Durasteel to your inventory.

  • E-11: Standard-issue blaster for Imperial Stormtroopers.

    • Unlock the recipe for the E-11 by adding Scrap Durasteel to your inventory.

  • Thermal Detonator: The bounty hunter’s detonator of choice! This thrown explosive affects a wider area than Dynamite.

    • Unlock the recipe for the Thermal Detonator by adding Durasteel to your inventory.

But wait, how do you build a Rebel Workbench? You’ll unlock the recipe by adding Plastoid to your inventory! Craft in the name of the Rebellion.

Keep your Lightsabers, Bowcasters, DL-44s, E-11s, Thermal Detonators, and Rebel Workbenches even after v29.40!
