Darth Vader has come to Fortnite alongside Chapter 3 Season 3, and fans can add this legendary character to their lockers this season to complete their Star Wars collection. While Fortnite already has a wide array of Star Wars skins from the sequel trilogy and Disney Plus shows, the game has been lacking in original trilogy characters until now. Darth Vader is a Battle Pass skin for this season, so you’ll have to put in quite a bit of work completing challenges and acquiring Battle Stars to unlock him. Here’s how you can get Darth Vader in Fortnite.
How to Get the Darth Vader Skin in Fortnite
Darth Vader is the final skin awarded from the Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass, so you’ll need to reach Page 10 by spending Battle Stars in order to unlock him. Once you reach Page 10 of the Battle Pass by either reaching Level 90 or claiming 90 rewards from previous pages, you can unlock Darth Vader for just 9 Battle Stars.
However, like most of the skins featured on the Battle Pass, you’ll have to claim every other reward on Page 10 before you can get the Darth Vader skin. That won’t be a huge issue if you’re a Star Wars fan, though, since Page 10 is filled with Vader’s other cosmetics like a Glider, Back Bling, and more. While it’s sad that Darth Vader isn’t available at Tier 1 like The Mandalorian was a few seasons ago, it’s still amazing to see this legendary character appear in Fortnite at all.
Reaching Page 10 of the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass will likely take most of the season for the average player, but you can just buy your way through the Battle Pass with V-Bucks like always if you’re impatient and have enough cash to spare. This season’s Battle Pass also contains a wide range of cool cosmetics as well, and it seems like this is the best stream of rewards that the game has offered in quite some time.
Chapter 3 Season 3 also brings a ton of new additions to the game, including some much-needed map updates, new weapons, and new Mythic items based on Indiana Jones and other things. This season is officially titled Fortnite Vibin’ and it marks a huge tonal shift from the all-out war that was ongoing throughout Chapter 3 Season 2. There’s a lot of new stuff to enjoy this season, and fans will have roughly three months to soak it all in before it comes to a close this fall.
Fortnite is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
