Epic Games have added in Darth Vader as an NPC. Here’s where you can find him on the map along with how you can get Darth Vader’s Lightsaber in Fortnite.
We have the first major Fortnite update of the season with the release of v21.10. Downtime for the patch began at 4 AM ET, but the servers were back online quicker than normal, and players can now jump in to experience what’s new.
There isn’t too much in the way of new content. the E-11 Star Wars Blasters gun has made a return that can be found in Imperial chests. Super level styles have also been added in today for the Malik, Evie, Adira, Sabina, and Stormfarer Battle Pass skins.
Socials tags and looking for a party have also been added. Players can add a social tag to their profile that expresses their favorite game mode. Changes have been made to Reality Sapling and there have been visualized audio adjustments.
The biggest addition today is the Darth Vader mythic boss and Darth Vader’s Lightsaber. Here’s the location where you can the Darth Vader boss in Fortnite and how to get his Lightsaber along with how it works.
Where is Darth Vader Boss in Fortnite – Map Location
The Darth Vader boss doesn’t have a set location on the map. When you’re in the Battle Bus, you’ll see his ship flying around the map, you’ll need to follow the ship and see where it lands. Thankfully, there will be a blue beam that you’ll be able to see when you’re in the Battle Bus to know where Darth Vader is.
Here’s what the blue beam looks like:
There seem to be three set locations where he’ll spawn. We’ll update this with a map of all the possible spawn locations as soon as we find each one.
Fortnite Darth Vader’s Lightsaber
To find and get Darth Vader’s Lightsaber in Fortnite, you’ll need to defeat him. He can throw his lightsaber at you, use the force to pull you towards him, and swing his lightsaber at you.
The lightsaber works like the other ones, but you can throw it and it’ll come back to you. It has a limited range as to how far you can throw it, but it’s definitely worthy of the “mythic” title.
