Darth Vader seems to be sick and tired of being stuck in Fortnite’s Battle Pass and is currently at war with all players. In the new update to the battle royale game, the Sith Lord is launched and he will not hesitate to take you down, but if you can knock him down first you will get his sword as a reward .
Vader spawns in random places every match but is easy to locate as he arrives on the island at the same time as the other players. While you are on the Battle Bus, look for the Royal Shuttle. It will enter the sky just above the clouds and will quickly descend a location on the map. The space shuttle is marked with a blue light for a few seconds after settling on the surface.
Vader is one of the hardest bosses in the game and will take some serious firepower to kill. He also has two stormtroopers on either side. He uses the Force in various ways to mess with you and possibly block your shots. Your best bet is to attack him from afar with a sniper rifle or a group approach.
His lightsaber is a game changer. You can also block hits with it, and it can also be thrown a reasonable distance to deal massive damage. Of course, you can swing it widely for melee combat. We don’t know how long Vader will stay here or how he affects the story, but it’s great to see him on the island taking action. Here’s hoping for more Star Wars integration soon!
