Darth Vader in Fortnite

New leaks suggest that Epic Games are planning to add iconic Star Wars villain Darth Vader to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about this crossover, including all leaks and rumors.

There has been a plethora of fun crossover content in Fortnite, with fictional characters like Spider-Man and popular real-life figures like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson joining the battle royale as playable skins.

We’ve also seen characters from the Star Wars series arrive in the game, such as the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Now, some new leaks are suggesting that Epic Games might have plans to add Darth Vader as well.

Is Darth Vader coming to Fortnite?

The Fortnite developers unveiled the Chapter 3, Season 3 cinematic intro during the State of Unreal showcase on April 5, 2022. One of the monitors at the event showcased a series of folders.

These were then captured by reliable leaker ‘iFireMonkey’ who zoomed into the image to see what was inside these folders. In their tweet, the leaker pointed out that one of the folders was named “C3S3_Vader.”

Darth Vader has been one of the most iconic fictional characters in media ever since his debut in the first Star Wars film back in 1977, and these leaks suggest that he might be making his way to Fortnite in Season 3.

This isn’t too difficult to believe, as Epic Games have brought plenty of Star Wars content to the battle royale before. The Mandalorian headlined the Season 5 Battle Pass, and characters like Rey also joined Fortnite.

Another notable leaker ‘ShiinaBR’ claims that Darth Vader is set to arrive in Chapter 3, Season 3 and will be found as a boss NPC on the island that players will be able to battle. This was corroborated by leaker ‘TaborTimeYT’ who leaked the arrival of Doctor Strange.

It’s possible that Darth Vader might arrive as part of the next season’s Battle Pass, or Epic Games could make his skin available via the in-game store. Hopefully, we’ll get more concrete information about this soon.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are just leaks, so take them with a grain of salt until the developers officially announce Vader’s arrival. Fortnite Season 3 is set to begin on June 4, we’ll probably receive confirmation at some point before the release date.

How to spectate in Fortnite Chapter 3

Watching over players can be educational or down-right hilarious, but how do you spectate in Fortnite Chapter 3?

Published

on

Spectating other players in Fortnite can be a great way to learn more about the game by watching how better opponents play, or simply good fun to see what others get up to. If you’d like to watch somebody else’s gameplay, here’s everything you need to know about how to spectate in Fortnite.

For many, the sole reason to jump onto Fortnite is to leap out of the Battle Bus, hurtle towards the map below, and eliminate enemies for a Victory Royale. For some though, it’s just as fun to watch other people play, whether to learn or just for some laughs.

While Epic Games keep adding new content to the game with every seasonal patch, one thing that disappeared was the ability to watch anyone’s game at any time.

While there are now some restrictions on who you can spectate, and when, there are still ways to settle back and observe matches. Here’s everything you need to know about spectating in Fortnite Chapter 3.

How to spectate friends in Fortnite Chapter 3

To spectate your friends in Fortnite, you’ll need to join their lobby, as the ‘Watch Game’ feature is no longer available.

Once you’ve joined your friend’s lobby, you’ll have to wait for 30 seconds after their match has started before you can see what they’re up to. This delay means you won’t see them jump out of the Battle Bus or land on the ground, but you should arrive just in time to see them engage opponents.


Can I spectate strangers in Fortnite Chapter 3?

Unfortunately, the only way to spectate strangers in Fortnite Chapter 3 is to watch players who eliminate you from a match.

When an enemy takes you down, you’ll immediately be shown your final placement, along with a list of options to start a new match or head back to the pre-game lobby. The game will also show you what your opponent is up to after they killed you, and you can watch the match all the way to the end via this method.

You’ll not be able to watch strangers from the pre-game lobby though, as the ‘Watch Game’ feature has been removed from the game entirely.

Why was Fortnite’s spectate feature removed?

While Epic Games didn’t give any details on the reason why they removed it, popular opinion suggests that stream sniping was the main reason it got axed.

Players would enlist friends to watch ongoing matches and call out enemy locations, making it easy for teams to essentially cheat their way to a victory.

Of course, it’s still possible to stream snipe opponents who are broadcasting their gameplay on streaming sites like Twitch or YouTube, but the delay means it isn’t quite as effective as this method.

How to get the Ripsaw Launcher & knock down Timber Pines in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3

Here’s how you can get your hands on the Ripsaw Launcher weapon in Fortnite and use it to knock down Timber Pines.

Published

on

The Ripsaw Launcher is a new weapon in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3, and we’ll go over its location on the map and how to knock down Timber Pines with the Ripsaw Launcher.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 features a plethora of fun content for players to unlock, including cosmetic skins of popular characters like Indiana Jones as well as powerful weapons like Darth Vader’s Lightsaber.

The Ripsaw Launcher is another weapon that you can get your hands on in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3, and we’ll go over everything that you need to know about it, including its location on the map.

How to get the Ripsaw Launcher in Fortnite

The Ripsaw Launcher can be found hanging on a wall in Choppin’ Chateau, which is northeast of Logjam Lotus on the north end of the Fortnite map. You can also collect it from chests and as floor loot until Ripsaw Launcher Week comes to an end on July 5.

The Ripsaw Launcher shoots a blade that’s capable of destroying builds, and it can dish out 25 damage to buildings, 60 to players, and 100 to vehicles. It can hold up to 10 blades and continues to deal damage for a total of 10 seconds when fully charged.

How to knock down Timber Pines with a Ripsaw Launcher in Fortnite

One of the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 Weekly Quests requires you to knock down Timber Pines with a Ripsaw Launcher. Timber Pines are large redwood trees that can mainly be found in snow-covered areas on the Fortnite map.

Here’s how you can knock them down:

  1. Collect a Ripsaw Launcher
  2. Approach a Timber Pine
  3. Press the shoot button to use the Ripsaw Launcher on the tree

Since you’re supposed to knock down 5 Timber Pines for this challenge, we recommend aiming your Ripsaw Launcher at a tree and fully charging it up before letting go. This will cause the Timber Pine to knock down multiple trees.
