Empire Container locations in LEGO Fortnite x Star Wars

While Empire Bunkers might seem like the natural place for Empire Containers to spawn, you won’t actually find them inside. Instead, Empire Containers are found within broken houses near Imperial settlements within LEGO Fortnite’s open world — much like regular chests.

Empire Containers are grey chests adorned with two circular red pieces on the lid. They emit a red glow, lighting up the corner of the building and making them hard to miss, especially at night. Make sure you’re healed up and ready to face enemies because nobody steals from the Empire without facing the consequences.

How to open Empire Containers in LEGO Fortnite

The first time you try to open an Empire Container, you’ll be pushed back, and Imperials will swarm to your location. Once you’ve defeated the handful of Stormtroopers, you can go back over to the chest and open it as normal.

I’ve only ever been attacked by regular Stormtroopers, who don’t pose much of a challenge. Thank the Maker for a lack of Imperial aim training.

What loot is inside Empire Containers?

Inside Empire Containers, you’ll find regular chest loot and Star Wars crafting materials, like Plastoid and Durasteel, as well as blasters. As you likely know by now, these are used to craft Star Wars items and construct buildings in your Rebel Village.

If you’re looking for Red and Green Lightsabers, those are instead found inside different Imperial-themed chests at the end of Empire Bunkers.

Wondering what to do with your newly found materials? Bowcasters, Detonators, and Blasters are all fantastic weapons to use in your fight against the Empire. Or against wolves. Or whatever enemy you have beef with; go wild!
