A day ago, Epic Games announced Darth Vader’s arrival as a boss on the island. The teaser included a scene where Peely and his teammates try to escape as Darth Vader shows up with his light saber.

In fact, the teaser was inspired by the exhilarating ending scene featuring Darth Vader in the 2016-hit movie, Rogue One: A Star War’s Story.

How to find Darth Vader in Fortnite?

Darth Vader as a Fortnite boss spawns at a random location on the map at the beginning of each match. An easy way to track him down would be to keep an eye on a spaceship from your battle bus. As soon as you see the spaceship passes your battle bus, drop and follow it to the ground to land near Darth Vader’s spawn point.

When you land, look for strong loot and prepare yourself for the fight. Also, make sure your Fortnite squad is there to help you take on the challenge easily. Note that, Darth Vader will not be alone. You and your squad is expected to face two capable Stormtroopers, equipped with E-11 Blaster Rifles, alongside the Sith Lord.
