Ever since rumors swirled around last season, players have been eagerly awaiting Darth Vader in Fortnite. The leader of the Galactic Empire was scheduled to arrive during the May 4 event.
However, the loopers only got lightsabers during the event and Obi-Wan Kenobi’s skin a few days later. Many wondered when the Darth Vader skin would actually arrive.
Luckily, users didn’t have to wait long for the skin to appear. In fact, Darth Vader has arrived in the very next season, i.e. the current one, and anyone who wanted the skin can buy it.
He did not enter the item shop like the others 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 that he’s already here. This is clearly a fantastic deal since the Legendary skin will only cost 950 V-Bucks or the price of the Battle Pass.
However, individuals will have to work very hard to unlock it.
Darth Vader has already arrived in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3
Rumors of a star wars-the themed season had existed for a long time. However, players never really had one.
Expectations were high as Chapter 3 Season 3 seemed like the perfect opportunity for this to happen. Unfortunately, Epic Games had to disappoint users again by not bringing star wars– thematic season.
Luckily, the developers have promised to release a Darth Vader skin.
For the uninitiated, this Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 article arrived on June 5th. That’s when the brand new season started and loopers could purchase the Battle Pass.
However, not all players can instantly unlock the Darth Vader skin. Unless they buy all 100 levels of the pass, they’ll have to wait at least a few days to unlock it.
Darth Vader’s outfit and cosmetics are available on page 10 of the Battle Pass. Besides 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, Dark Shader Wrap, Tie Squadron Contrail, and Imperial March Emote can only be unlocked from the premium pass.
Fortnite community rallies against low XP in Chapter 3 Season 3
Epic seriously nerfed the XP system in Chapter 3 Season 3. It now takes more XP to level up in the Battle Pass.
At the same time, weekly quests now grant less XP. Instead of 20,000 XP like last season, users will only get 15,000 XP for completing quests.
To reach level 100 in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, users need a total of 7,920,000 XP. With the nerf to XP systems, getting to this level has become much more difficult.
It also means loopers who can’t buy the Battle Pass Tiers will have to work incredibly hard to get the Darth Vader skin in Chapter 3 Season 3.
