To get his red lightsaber, you must defeat Darth Vader. He and his Stormtroopers land in a different random Imperial Docking Bay every match so you will have to watch to see where he lands. Each of the 5 docking bays has Imperial chests which contain an E-11 Blaster Rifle, Impulse Grenades, and a Med Kit. Grab a weapon before Vader and his Stormtroopers see you as they will attempt to fight you on sight.

If you defeat Vader you get to keep his deadly red Lightsaber for the rest of the match, so come prepared with a weapon, ammo, and meds. If you manage to open an Imperial chest the Impulse Grenades are really useful for getting some distance between you and Vader. Be warned, however, he will come after you.

Vader can also use the Force and drag you towards him- be ready for this and have a short range weapon to hand, or use an Impulse Grenade to get some space again. Vader can also throw his saber but doesn’t do that too often. He has a lot of shield and health but as long as you keep maintaining distance and healing if you need to, it is achievable.
