Fortnite fans have created some weird and wonderful skin designs since the game’s release in 2017, but this Darth Vader concept might be the best of the lot. 

The Star Wars character is one of the most popular from the original trilogy, which all started back in 1977, and one Fortnite fan would love to see a version of him added the the game. 

There are a few tweaks in his design, though, with a curved lightsaber replacing the typical axe that you would typically see in Battle Royale mode, as well as several other exciting changes which allows this concept to stand out.

While the outfit might not be exactly like Darth Vader’s, we can only imagine the different emotes which could be included with this concept skin – perhaps one where he is choking an opponent, waving his lightsaber or maybe even moving an item with the force. 

Its creator, Noblebatterly, posted their fan art to Reddit and has since received generally positive feedback. 

However, one user – OfficialFishstick – thinks the design is no better than one skin already added to the game. They posted: “This is almost as good as Fishstick”.

“Maybe one day I’ll be able to create something half as good as Fishstick,” Noblebatterly responded. “But, for now, I’ll just have to accept his dominance.”


While this Star Wars skin is highly unlikely to ever make it into Fortnite in the future, that won’t stop fans thinking about what it would be like to see Darth Vader and other characters feature in the game.
