Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an action-adventure game developed by Respawn Entertainment that follows the story of Cal Kestis, a young Jedi on a quest to rebuild the Jedi Order. Throughout the game, players have the opportunity to customize Cal’s lightsaber, including its color.

While the iconic red lightsaber is traditionally associated with the Sith and the Dark Side of the Force, it’s possible for players to acquire this color for their own lightsaber in Jedi: Fallen Order. This article will provide a step-by-step guide on how to unlock the red lightsaber in the game.

Jedi Fallen Order red lightsaber: How to unlock

Complete the Story Campaign

Before you can unlock the red lightsaber, you must first complete the game’s main story campaign. The campaign consists of eight chapters that will take you through various planets and confrontations in the Star Wars universe.

Upon completing the final chapter and watching the game’s ending, you will be able to continue playing in a free-roam mode to explore and complete any remaining side quests or activities.

Start New Journey+

After completing the story campaign, you’ll need to return to the game once more to access the red lightsaber. This is in the New Journey+ mode that you can select from the main menu. Once selected, you’ll head right back into a fresh experience but this time, knowing exactly what is to come.

Access the Lightsaber Customization Bench

Once you start this New Journey+, you’ll then need to reach the point in the game where you can customize your lightsaber. As you will know already, this bench is where Cal constructs mods for his lightsaber and where players can modify various other aspects of the weapon, including its color.

Unlock the Red Inquisitorius Crystal

With the story campaign complete and the lightsaber customization bench accessible, you’ll find that a new color option is available for Cal’s lightsaber: red. The Red Inquisitorious Crystal, the source of the lightsaber’s red color, is now unlocked and can be selected for use in the customization menu.

Customize Your Lightsaber

Now that the red crystal is unlocked, you can customize Cal’s lightsaber to emit a red blade. Simply interact with the customization bench, select the “Color” option, and choose the red crystal. Apply your changes, and Cal’s lightsaber will now have the iconic red hue.
