What happens if you try to run over Darth Vader in Fortnite?
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 received yesterday June 21 an update that brought a new collaboration with Naruto, new weapons and most exciting, the arrival of Darth Vader to the island.
Coinciding with the spectacular final chapter of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Vader will be present for a limited time in the battle royale as a hostile NPC (and so hostile!). Although Vader is the final skin of the battle pass, all players will have the opportunity to see him… and fight with him.
Notice Darth Vader’s shuttle when you jump onto the island from the bus. Vader arrives on the map escorted by some stormtroopers, and if you manage to defeat him you can steal his lightsaber.
However, Vader is like a mini-boss: he has a longer life bar, and force powers that unbalance the fight… unless you attack him from several fronts. As you can see in this clip on Reddit, Vader doesn’t mess around: here’s what he’ll do to you if you try to run him over.
Vader uses the Force to grab the car and throw it through the air. If you shoot at him, he’ll deflect most of the shots with his lightsaber. If you approach on foot, he’ll throw you through the air with the Force… and then he’ll jump himself with the Force to where you are so you can’t run away.
But it’s worth defeating him: you’ll get 2,000 XP, and on top of that you’ll be able to take his laser sword. And this one is special, because you can throw it if you hold down the aim trigger and press the fire trigger. The lightsaber throw is a devastating attack.
This display of Darth Vader’s power coincides with the end of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series that has allowed us to see the most destructive and cruel side of the famous Star Wars villain.
The best thing is that Fortnite’s crossovers with Star Wars will continue, and it is rumored that Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber… and his skin will also arrive.
