Ever since rumors circulated last season, players have been eagerly awaiting Darth Vader in Fortnite. The leader of the Galactic Empire was due to arrive during the May 4 event.
Loopers, however, only got Lightsabers during the event and the Obi-Wan Kenobi skin a few days later. Some wondered when the Darth Vader skin would actually arrive.
Fortunately, users did not have to wait long for the skin to appear. In fact, Darth Vader arrived in the next season, i.e. the current one, and anyone who wanted the skin can buy it.
It did not come like others in the item store Star Wars skins. Instead, it’s part of the Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass.
For anyone wondering when Darth Vader is coming to Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, the answer is he’s already here. This is clearly a fantastic deal, as the Legendary skin costs just 950 V-Bucks or the price of the Battle Pass.
However, individuals will have to work extra hard to unlock it.
Darth Vader has already arrived in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
rumors about a Star Warsthemed season had been going on for a long time. However, players never actually got one.
Expectations were high, as Chapter 3 Season 3 seemed like the perfect opportunity for that to happen. Unfortunately, Epic Games again had to disappoint users by no Star Warsthemed season.
Fortunately, the developers promised to release a Darth Vader skin.
For the uninitiated, this item arrived in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 on June 5. This was when the all-new season kicked off and loopers could purchase the Battle Pass.
However, not every gamer can unlock the Darth Vader skin immediately. Unless they buy all 100 levels of the pass, they will have to wait at least a few days to unlock it.
The Darth Vader outfit and associated cosmetics are available on page 10 of the Battle Pass. In addition to the skin, players can get the Sigil of the Empire pickaxe for free.
The rest of the cosmetics, including Viper Probe Droid Back Bling, Lambda Class Shuttle Glider, Darth Shader Wrap, Tie Squadron Contrail, and Imperial March Emote, can only be unlocked with the premium pass.
Fortnite community battles bad XP in Chapter 3 Season 3
Epic seriously grained the XP system in Chapter 3 Season 3. It now requires more XP to level up in the Battle Pass.
At the same time, the weekly missions now give less XP. Instead of 20,000 XP like last season, users will only get 15,000 XP for completing missions.
To reach level 100 in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, users need a total of 7,920,000 XP. With the nerf of the XP system, it has become much more difficult to reach this level.
This also means that loopers who can’t buy Battle Pass tiers will have to grind insanely hard to get the Darth Vader skin in Chapter 3 Season 3.
