How to help defeat Darth Vader in Fortnite

To help defeat Darth Vader in Fortnite, you will first need to find him. It is located northwest of Brutal Bastion, next to the gas station. You can see it marked on the following map:

Head to this place and you will find Darth Vader, surrounded by clone troopers. These will start attacking as soon as they see you. Fortunately, there are Republic chests in the nearby cabins, where you can get the DC-15 blasters. The thing about this challenge is that to complete it, you only need to damage Darth Vader’s health bar. It doesn’t matter if you’re not the one who defeats him, as long as you caused him damage.

The main thing to note here is that first of all, Darth Vader will be after you, and it’s actually quite a tough boss fight. He will jump and essentially warp afterwards, and can use Force Push and Force Pull to launch you. He will also throw his lightsaber at you, so it’s best to fight at a significant distance whenever possible. Secondly, this will be an extremely busy delivery location. Because of this, it is recommended that you go down with a full squad or deal damage and then leave the area for someone else to kill Darth Vader.
