The looter shooter genre has one of its old favourites back in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. The game is a full beach mood, vibin’ in a new environment with amazing weapons and rewards. As is the case every time with Fortnite, they have brought in several cool characters from other franchises.

One of the most iconic names in this regard is the Sith Lord, Darth Vader himself. He has a pretty nifty Lightsaber which players can get in the game. The following guide will help players in getting the Lightsaber and deal some great damage with it.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3: A cool weapon for all

The Lightsaber is a Mythic Melee Weapon, with the main difference from other Lightsabers being its ranged damage. Darth Vader’s Lightsaber can be thrown to your enemies too.

The primary attacks remain a number of spin attacks and an overhead slam. Additionally, the weapon can also top 30 shots and projectiles. The other advantage in having this weapon is you can press down the aim down sight button to momentarily block frontal weapon damage. However, this does not work for explosive attacks. 

Obviously, players have to encounter the Sith Lord to get the weapon. Make sure you are following his flying transport vehicle as the match starts.

It is the Imperial Shuttle will be visible at the beginning of the Battle Bus, and will then go to dock at an Imperial Docking Bay. Darth Vader and two Stormtroopers will be present in this area and players have to come here in order to start the battle.

Artemis Island has five Imperial Docking Bays, and the Shuttle will land at any one of these locations, and whoever defeats him will get the coveted weapon.

As mentioned above, there are five locations where the Imperial Shuttle will dock. These are listed below: 

  • Imperial Docking Bay Alpha: It is to the south of Seven Outpost II and west of Logjam Lotus. 
  • Imperial Docking Bay Eclipse: Head west of Overtaken Outpost, and southeast to Greasy Grove.
  • Imperial Docking Bay Radar: This is found within The Perch, and northeast of the The Joneses. Again, south of Seven Outpost II.
  • Imperial Docking Bay Vega: Can be located east of Washout Wharf and Choppin’ Chateau, and north of Shell or High Water. 
  • Imperial Docking Bay Deimos: It is to the west of Dirt-Cut Circuit and southeast of Coney Crossroads. 

Once players have arrived at the Docking Bay, make you way to a tent which houses an E-11 Blaster inside an Imperial Chest. Also, you want to make sure that you are the only combatant against Darth Vader at that point of time. Be mobile in the fight in order to dodge the Lightsaber attacks and make him unable to block.

However, Darth Vader will also sue Force Pull on the player, but again move away as soon as possible. Having beaten him, Darth Vader will drop his Lighsaber for you to pick up and use in the future.
