How to defeat darth vader in fortnite - To complete the Fall of the Republic missions, you will have to once again face off against the infamous Star Wars character, Darth Vader.
Originally introduced as a playable character and boss in Chapter 3 Season 3, he has now returned to the island as part of the Find the Force Limited Pass. According to in-game lore, Darth Vader leads the Imperial Army and drops a mythical lightsaber after players take it down. In this guide, we'll walk you through where to find and how to defeat Darth Vader in Fortnite.
Darth Vader location in Fortnite
You can find Darth Vader to the north of Brutal Bastion, as shown on the map above. If other players started fighting him first, there's a chance Darth Vader may have strayed a bit to engage in battle. In this case, keep an eye out for the red exclamation point above his head to find it.

Once he has found his camp in the snowy area, I recommend that he first take the loot somewhere nearby to prepare for battle. Personally, I wouldn't recommend immediately landing in his camp, as you'll run into other players who will kill you before you even meet Darth Vader. So, make sure you equip yourself with decent heals and weapons before heading into the fight.
Finding Darth Vader this season differs from his appearance in Chapter 3: Season 3, in which he had no fixed spawn location. In the past, players had to follow the path of Vader's ship and pay close attention to where he landed in order to locate it.
How to defeat Darth Vader in Fortnite
You will find Darth Vader equipped with a mythical lightsaber along with some clone troopers who accompany him all the time. On top of that, Epic Games has also given him a special ability where he uses the Force to draw players towards him. Most importantly, he can block incoming bullets with his lightsaber and sometimes throw his weapon to attack.
To beat Darth Vader, you need to keep a safe distance from the boss, as he deals considerable damage to nearby players. It's a tough task to beat him in a solo fight since he has around 600-700 HP. Therefore, we recommend facing him in Trios or Squads game modes. If he decides to go it alone, keep in mind that even if you only shoot him once, if you manage to stay alive, you'll still get credit for the kill, even if you weren't the one getting the final shot.
