One of the most iconic villains in all of media, Darth Vader is known – and feared – across the globe. Even people that have never seen a Star Wars movie know who this terrifying, black-clad, red lightsaber-wielding creature is. Now, he is making his way to Fortnite. Besides being very powerful in the ways of the Force, he is also surrounded by Stormtroopers. All of this makes defeating him very hard. Though, doing this is very much worth it, as you will get his signature red lightsaber once he’s down. Of course, before you can defeat him, you need to find him first. In this guide, we will explain where the Darth Vader location is in Fortnite.
Where is Darth Vader in Fortnite
To find Darth Vader in Fortnite, the first thing you will need to do is to keep your eyes peeled for his shuttle. Once you enter the Battle Bus, you will see his Shuttle spacecraft flying by you. Make note of where it is going to land, exit the Battle Bus and go there. The location where the Shuttle will land is going to be different each time, so there’s no predicting where you will need to go after him.
In any case, once he is down on the ground, Darth Vader is going to be very near his Shuttle – attacking each player as they come along. A good strategy here is to let these other players soften him up first, and then you can go in for the kill yourself. Just be sure to keep your distance away from Darth Vader, as his lightsaber will make short work of you if he gets into melee range. Once he is down, you can pick it up and use it as a weapon. You can deflect incoming shots and throw it and have it come back to you like a boomerang.
