Fortnite: How to Find (and Beat!) the Darth Vader Boss
Star Wars’ greatest villain has finally arrived on the Fortnite map, with Darth Vader becoming boss. Although he is already a Battle Pass skin, he is now vibing along with the rest.
Due to his Force use, the Darth Vader boss is hard to hit and can be very difficult to beat. Although he may not be Fortnite’s most difficult boss, he is certainly one of the most memorable.
This is everything you need about Fortnite’s Darth Vader boss.
Darth Vader Boss Location
Darth Vader can alternate between multiple Fortnite locations. The map shows where his shuttle takes you to determine where he is located.
He can be found at Dirt-Cut circuit, a landmark south of Coney. He may also land near Logjam. You can see Darth Vader in many places, but it is best to follow his ship from the Battle Bus.
Keep in mind that Darth Vader doesn’t spawn in competitive modes.
How to defeat Darth Vader
Instead of appealing to his human side, deal with Vader in Fortnite the old-fashioned way: with bullets. He is estimated to have between 600 and 700 HP.
Darth Vader can deflect your bullets and close the distance around you. However, if you keep the pressure up, his guard will eventually fall, and you can shoot him. Keep your distance and avoid his Force throws. He cannot block attacks from behind you, so it will be easier to deal with him as part of a team.
