Cary, North Carolina – The force is with Fortnite. In the past few weeks, two legendary characters from Star Wars have made their way into Epic Games’ Battle Royale.

But that no longer has to be the case, since update 21.10 you can find at least one of the two lightsabers in the game. In this article you will learn how to find and use Darth Vader’s lightsaber.

Fortnite: Darth Vader’s lightsaber – this is how you find it in Battle Royale
How do I get the lightsaber? Darth Vader himself has already become available in Fortnite at the start of Chapter 3 Season 3. In Fortnite’s current season’s Battle Pass, players can unlock it by leveling it to level 100. For the lightsaber (or lightsaber, for real SW fans) you don’t have to play as a Sith Lord, but find him on the map and kill him. Since update 21.10 Darth Vader can be found on the map in Battle Royale and you have to eliminate him during a match to get your hands on his lightsaber.
If you were hoping to get the lightsaber permanently as a skin, unfortunately we have to disappoint you in advance. Darth Vader’s weapon can only be obtained and used during a match. Unfortunately, there is no permanent unlock as a pickaxe.
How do I find Darth Vader? Darth Vader currently appears at a point on the Fortnite map in each round of Battle Royale. He’s usually most likely to hang around at the Logjam Lumberyard or south of Coney Crossroads, though he can occasionally show up elsewhere. The easiest way is to look out for Darth Vader’s Lambda spaceship in the Battlebus and follow it after you get out so that you can land right next to it. From there, all you have to do is gear up and seek combat with him.

Fortnite: Defeat Darth Vader and grab his lightsaber with unique skill
How do I defeat Darth Vader? Darth Vader is always running around as a boss in Fortnite with a small entourage of stormtroopers. You should definitely take care of the two followers first so that you can better concentrate on Vader himself afterwards. For one, the stormtroopers don’t take all that much damage, and for another, they drop E11 blaster rifles, which Darth Vader is pretty vulnerable to. You should grab one of these rifles, not only because they are so effective against the boss – they also don’t use ammo.
From there, all you have to do is keep your distance from Darth Vader and gradually finish him off with headshots. Once you’ve done him, you can pick up the red lightsaber from him. Vader’s lightsaber can do much of the same thing as other lightsabers in Fortnite, but has the added skill of being able to aim it and throw it like a boomerang.
