Once Darth Vader has arrived in Fortnite, players will be able to challenge him to a duel for the chance to win his red Lightsaber. It’s not easy to get your hands on this elegant weapon from a more civilized age, especially since Darth Vader is, unsurprisingly, quite powerful in Fortnite. Fortnite’s Season 3 battle pass concludes with a page full of Star Wars Empire-themed cosmetics, including a Darth Vader skin, which is necessary to complete the Sith Lord look. Find out where to find Darth Vader in Fortnite and how to defeat him to obtain Star Wars weapons in this helpful guide.
Where to Find Darth Vader in Fortnite?
At the beginning of each Fortnite match, Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers appear in the same place and stay there until they are eliminated. Look for Darth Vader’s white Lambda-class Shuttle as it flies into the Fortnite sky after the Battle Bus takes off. It will land in an Imperial Docking Bay on the island, and you can dive down to it from the bus because it is so fast. If you don’t make it in time and have to walk, you can find Vader’s landing site by looking for the blue beam of light rising from the docking bay. You should know that Darth Vader is not available in any of the official Fortnite competitive game modes.
While it’s true that the Imperial Stormtroopers in the movies have terrible aim, that doesn’t mean you can show up unprepared to fight at the Imperial site Vader is at. Before taking on Vader, you should make a landing at a nearby POI or Landmark and scavenge some equipment (a good gun and shields, at the very least).
How to Beat Darth Vader in Fortnite?
Now that you’re armed and ready to face the Sith Lord, you should head toward the Imperial Docking Bay, where Vader’s shuttle is docked, and you can be sure that he and his Stormtroopers will spot you immediately. Defeating Darth Vader is as simple as firing numerous shots at him.
You can’t just start chipping away at his health; first you have to break through his shield. Grenades are useful because explosions are hard for Darth to block.
You should be wary of him because he has the ability to suddenly burst into surprising speeds, and his Lightsaber attacks can be quick and devastating.
You should avoid getting within melee range of his Lightsaber, but you should also be wary of his saber throws and Force attacks, which can be countered with some cover. Don’t waste your bullets because he can deflect a good portion of them. However, after taking enough damage, he will eventually go down.
How to Get Darth Vader’s Lightsaber in Fortnite?
When you finally defeat Darth Vader, he’ll drop a bunch of useful items—including his signature red Lightsaber—on the ground. It fits right into your standard inventory slots, so you can use it in the heat of battle and become the master of all evil.
When you’re up close and personal with an opponent in Fortnite, swap to this melee weapon and deal some damage with some acrobatic Lightsaber strikes. You, like Vader, have the option of blocking to mitigate attacks or throwing the Lightsaber for ranged damage.
You can get a good Star Wars weapon from one of Vader’s Stormtrooper guards, but his Lightsaber is worth the trouble. If you manage to knock them all out, they’ll be gone for good and leave behind some treasure and Mythic E-11 Blasters.
Find this blaster and other valuable items in Imperial crates strewn about Vader’s landing site. To complement Darth Vader’s Lightsaber, the E-11 is a worthwhile close-to-medium range weapon due to its infinite ammo.
You need not engage in combat with Darth Vader or a Stormtrooper to acquire either of these Star Wars weapons; instead, simply loot them from the inventory of fallen players.
Well, that’s all we have here about how you can get the Darth Vader’s Lightsaber in Fortnite. We hope this guide helped you. If you liked this, make sure to check out how to get the Ninja Skin in Fortnite.
