Darth Vader has made it to the Fortnite island. He is now a part of the game in Chapter 3, Season 3. You will search for him, beat him and claim his Lightsaber as your own. Fortnite players thought that after defeating the Imagined Order, they could now play the game in peace. Unfortunately, they were wrong, as the island of Fortnite is never a peaceful place. In the new 21.10 update, Darth Vader is invading the island, and you will have to fight him to stop his campaign and take over the Fortnite island. The good thing is that this means that his epic Mythic Lightsaber weapon is up for grabs.

Darth Vader – Grab the Mythic Lightsaber

In order to grab the legendary weapon, you will have to take down Darth Vader. That will not be an easy task, as taking down the iconic villain from Star Wars is not for everyone. On the other hand, beating him will grant you access to his Lightsaber. You can use it by throwing it at other players, and it will come back to you like a boomerang.

How to Find Darth Vader on the Island?

Darth Vader is going to spawn at a random spot on the Fortnite map when every match begins. On the other hand, you could easily track him by waiting on the battle bus. You will wait until you see his large spaceship passing by. You will then jump from the bus, and while you will not be able to track it on the map, you will be able to spot it on the ground because of the blue light that it emits. Of course, you have to be quite careful when you land, as Darth Vader, along with his two Stormtroopers, will attack you as soon as they see you. So, there will be three enemies this time that you will have to worry about if you are planning to get the Mythic Lightsaber.

How to Defeat the Sith Lord in Fortnite?

Darth Vader is one of the iconic Star Wars villains and characters. He was almost impossible to kill in the saga, so it makes sense he would be equally as hard to kill in the game. So, it will not be an easy task if you want to claim his Lightsaber. In Fortnite, Darth Vader has two bars of health that you will have to get through to beat him. He also comes packed with some intense attacks and patterns. Some of them even include Darth Vader utilizing the force to prevent you from escaping. Therefore, it isn’t a good idea to head for Darth Vader right away. Instead, it is better to land, grab a weapon, and try to sneak on the trio and take out the Stormtroopers. You can then steal their E-11 Blaster Rifle, which is a pretty strong laser gun with unlimited ammo. That makes it the perfect weapon to try to take down Vader. Of course, you do not have to worry about ammo, so you can blast off as many bullets as you want, but remember, always aim for the head and find a nearby cover. The best strategy is to wait until Darth Vader is busy with another player and try to steal the kill and grab the Light Saber and start slashing through the rest of the battlefield.

How to Use Darth Vader’s Mythic Light Saber?

Once you successfully defeated Darth Vader, it is time to use his weapon. The weapon works like any other melee weapon in the game. So you can use it to slash and dish out melee damage and block incoming enemy bullets. However, it comes with one major difference; you can actually throw the Mythic Light Saber at other players by aiming and clicking on the shoot button, which deals some heavy long-distance damage. But, do not worry, as you will not lose it that way, as it comes back just like a boomerang.
