All Star Wars Imperial Roadblock Locations in Fortnite

These ARE the Stormtroopers you're looking for...

It wouldn’t be a Star Wars event in Fortnite without the Stormtroopers setting up roadblocks around the map. Just like previous events, these spots will be where you can get Star Wars gear, defeat Stormtroopers, and this time, even recruit a Wookie ally. Here’s where to find them.

Where to Find Imperial Roadblocks in Fortnite

There are six different Imperial Roadblocks set up around the map, all scattered throughout the biomes. This will make it easier to drop at one no matter where the Battle Bus starts. Since they are your prime spots for collecting Star Wars weapons and items, you’ll want to know where to drop at each of them.

  • Southwest of Lavish Lair
  • North of Lavish Lair
  • Northwest of Snooty Steppes
  • Southwest of Fencing Fields
  • Southeast of Classy Courts
  • South of Reckless Railways

Where to Get Imperial Chests

At this Imperial Roadblock location, you’ll not only come across some Stormtroopers, but you’ll also be able to loot some Imperial Chests. These chests are where all the goodies lie.

They don’t appear like regular chests but large block-like boxes in all black, fitting of the Imperials. You’ll be able to find them by their gold glow around the lid. The best spots to drop at the roadblocks to secure a chest are the small white huts. Usually, there are up to three of them at each location. However, some chests can spawn outside of them as well.

Another way you can loot at these locations is to take down the Stormtroopers patrolling there. They drop their Blasters for you to pick up, but beware of their horrible aim.

How to Recruit a Wookie Ally

Something new this time around is the Wookie NPCs. Occasionally, when dropping into an Imperial Roadblock, you may see a Wookie fighting the Stormtroopers there. If you pick up a weapon and help defeat the Stormtroopers, the Wookie will automatically become your ally, working like other hired recruits. They carry a Bowcaster weapon so they’ll provide great cover for you.
