The iconic Star Wars villain — Fortnite Darth Vader — is the latest Fortnite antagonist, choosing the Island for his new campaign. Darth Vader serves as a Boss character, patrolling the Island and challenging any Fortnite players that dare contest him. Those that manage to find and defeat Fortnite Darth Vader in combat will discover Darth Vader's Lightsaber, a Mythic melee weapon, waiting for them.

Where To Find Darth Vadar In Fortnite

Historically, Fortnite non-player character (NPC) Bosses tend to post up at specific locations on the Island. That's not the case with Darth Vader though, as he likes to visit a different site each match.

When you begin a match, look around the Battle Bus and you'll notice Darth Vader's Lambda-class Shuttle starship flying around the Island. Eventually, he'll settle on a spot to land, bringing his loyal Stormtroopers with him.

It's impossible to predict where the Dark Lord will ultimately land, but when his starship finally touches the ground, a giant blue beam will mark where you can find him.

 

How To Get Darth Vader's Lightsaber In Fortnite

As you might expect, the only way to get your hands on Darth Vader's Lightsaber is to vanquish Vader himself in combat. Fortnite Darth Vader's Lightsaber is a true tool of destruction. The laser blade is deadly at close range, but you can also throw it at enemies boomerang-style, as well as use it to deflect incoming fire.

Upon defeat, Darth Vader will drop his Lightsaber. Darth Vader only appears once per match, so you'll want to take him on early before other players get to him. If you can't find Darth Vader, it's likely someone else already eliminated him and grabbed Darth Vader's Lightsaber for themselves.

How To Defeat Darth Vader In Fortnite

Defeating Darth Vader won't be easy. The Sith Lord is formidable in melee combat. Get too close, and he can wipe you out in seconds. Furthermore, Darth Vader can toss his Lightsaber out at you, deflect your bullets, and even use force powers to toss you or toss objects at you. Add on the fact that Darth Vader comes with a small army of Stormtroopers to protect him, and taking this Fortnite Boss down is no simple task. 

Your best bet to conquer Darth Vader is to wear him down slowly while making an effort to keep your distance and avoid incoming damage. Darth Vader has six to seven times the health of a normal enemy player, so plan accordingly. Look for openings and opportunities to catch him off guard from behind or when he's not defending with his Lightsaber.

How To Unlock Darth Vader Outfit In Fortnite

Want to cosplay as Darth Vader in-game? The Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass features Darth Vader as the Tier 100 Reward. Make your way through the entire Chapter 3 Season Battle Pass and you'll have the option to unlock the Darth Vader Outfit for nine Fortnite Battle Stars.

The Darth Vader Skin won't grant you the abilities of Darth Vader, but it should still strike fear in the hearts of your opponents.

Fortnite Darth Vader is the ultimate villain, and now, he's here to unleash his reign of terror in Fortnite. Find the Darth Vader Boss NPC by tracking his Lambda-class Shuttle starship and watching where it lands. To wield Darth Vader's Lightsaber, you must defeat the Dark Lord in battle and collect the Lightsaber as loot. And if you simply want to dress up as Darth Vader himself, you can unlock the Darth Vader Outfit in the Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass.
