How to destroy structures with an E-11 blaster rifle
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 introduced Obi-Wan Kenobi to the game. With it came his lightsaber and E-11 blaster, standard Stormtrooper issue. The blaster was short-lived and vaulted after a while. The latest Fortnite v21.10 update introduced Darth Vader and Stormtroopers equipped with E-11 Blaster rifles to the game.
Now that Fortnite’s new season is entering its fourth week, leaks about upcoming challenges have started populating online forums. Among these challenges is one where players must destroy structures using the E-11 Blaster rifle. Players need to destroy 15 structures and upon completion they will receive 15,000 XP.
The E-11 Blaster Rifle deals 30 damage per shot and has a fast rate of fire. It uses infinite energy ammo and requires a cool down period. The weapon is similar to a First Order Blaster rifle and has a 1.25x headshot multiplier.

The challenge will be easy once players acquire the E-11 Blaster rifle. The weapon can be acquired after defeating a Stormtrooper or by searching chests at Darth Vader spawn points on the map. Of the two options, the latter is easier and can be completed quite quickly.
Fortnite players can travel to any Darth Vader landing spot, conveniently located in five locations across the map. Upon landing there, players can search for Star Wars chests. The E-11 Blaster rifle appears in at least one of the chests in each location. After acquiring the rifle, players can destroy structures.
Fortnite players can destroy any structure, whether it’s made by an opponent or an in-game building. Players can start by destroying structures at the landing spot itself.
Another way to acquire the E-11 Blaster Rifle is by defeating a Stormtrooper. Players can follow Darth Vader’s ship at the start of the game and land nearby.
After getting their hands on the appropriate weapons, players can approach the Stormtroopers and engage in combat. The Loopers can easily defeat them, but players should be careful of Darth Vader. Attacking them alerts Darth Vader, who then goes into a defensive stance and can render players dead. He’s a tough boss to beat.
Although there are two options, the second seems absurd and threatening. It really depends on the temperament of the player as to which option they resort to. Those who want the thrill of epic combat and want to get their hands on Vader’s lightsaber can try the latter option.
If Loopers plan ahead and land somewhere devoid of Darth Vader, they can easily accommodate more than one weekly challenge in a single game. Players should try to land on a landing spot near a densely populated POI.
Coney Crossroads is one of those Fortnite POIs with lots of structures to destroy and is located near one of the landing spots. Also, since it’s located in the middle of the map, it’s likely to fall inside the first circle most of the time.
