Defeating him is a necessary step in the quest, but to defeat him, players will first have to find him. The exact location of Darth Vader is unknown, but one can track his spaceship. It would not be much of a task to track the spaceship, because the spaceship emits a blue light, which can easily be visible with naked eyes.
It is worth noting that Darth Vader’s spaceship’s location would not be marked on the map. It is better to keep an open eye on the sky. It is highly advised to avoid landing in the exact same location as Darth Vader’s ship, as players won’t be able to fight him without a good strategy.
Darth Vader lands with 2 stormtroopers who won’t blink an eye, before killing you. It is better to find the land somewhere near to the ship’s location and collect the required weapon or make the required strategy before confronting him.
