Calculated - Emote - Fortnite.png
The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • Darth Vader isn't very fast, so evading his Lightsaber swings isn't too hard. However you need to be mindful of the force attacks he could use to compensate.
  • When Darth Vader is doing something that isn't walking towards you, he won't block incoming fire. This is an opportunity for you to dish out damage. Just be careful of what he does during it.
  • Imperial Docking Bay Radar is located next to Seven Outpost VII, making it very easy to lure Darth Vader to fight The Foundation.
