How To Obtain The Kyber Crystals to Recolor Your Lightsaber
So you’re probably wondering, how exactly do you unlock different colors for your lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order?
To change the color of your lightsaber, you will first need to gain access to a workbench. Workbenches can be found all throughout the different planets that you travel too, however, the most easily accessed bench can be found inside The Mantis, towards the back of the ship.
Upon using the workbench, navigate to the Color section and select the color that you wish to use.
Without delving too much into spoilers, Cal will travel to one of the smallest planets on your journey known as Ilum, around the final quarter of the game -or approximately the 5th chapter. Due to its size, the planet is pretty straightforward and part from a few minor droids, you won’t find too many creatures to cause you any problems.
Before you can obtain the crystals though, you will need to complete a puzzle that requires you to melt a series of frozen doors by redirecting light around the room.
Once the puzzle is finished, make your way through the rest of the Jedi Temple until you finally come across the Kyber Crystals. These crystals can not be missed and be used to change the color of your lightsaber.
Don’t stress too much when you are given the option to change the color of your lightsaber though, as you will have access to all five unique colors when customizing your lightsaber at a workbench.
Fun Fact: Each of the unique lightsaber colors – Orange, Purple, Cyan, Magenta, Indigo, and Yellow – all feature slightly different sounds for all of their swings and idles.
Developer, Oscar Coen, revealed on Twitter that the rarer lightsabers have a higher processing, which slightly alters the sound of each lightsaber in hopes of making them appear more unique and special to use.
Can You Color Your Lightsaber Red?
Unfortunately, there is currently no option to recolor your lightsaber red in the Fallen Order. While there is still the possibility that Respawn may add the color in the future, we believe that the option will remain out of the game due to the simple fact that Cal is a Jedi, and Jedi don’t usually associate with the red lightsaber.
You can get a series of Lightsaber upgrades as part of the story. However, here’s one that you can get early (and yes, you can change its colors).
Let us know in the comments below if you believe a red lightsaber option should have been included in the Fallen Order.
