Your lightsaber can be whatever you want in Star Wars: Jedi Survivor and if you feel like going over to the dark side, then red may be the perfect choice for you. Here’s how to get a red lightsaber in the game.

In the promotional material, trailers, and cut scenes for both Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and Fallen Order, Cal Kestis traditionally favors a blue lightsaber. Truth be told, your lightsaber can actually be one of many different colors in the game.

Once you unlock workbenches in Survivor, you can tinker with Cal’s lightsaber from style to color. This includes modifying the hardware to the actual color of the laser itself. Respawn Entertainment graciously gifts players a rainbow of colors, but there are some users who idolize villains such as the iconic Darth Vader, making a red lightsaber more desirable.

So, here’s how you can get a red lightsaber in the sequel.

How to unlock red lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

To unlock the red lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, players simply need to complete the game and beat the final boss.

Once you do this, you will be treated to the game’s ending, the post-credits cut scene, and also information on New Game Plus. If you do choose to start a fresh save file, then you’ll be informed about the new features included in New Game Plus – which also includes the addition of a red lightsaber.

How to equip red lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

The red lightsaber can only be equipped in New Game Plus once you’ve first gotten to the Mantis. So, start up a new game on Journey+ and play through the game naturally until you get back on the Mantis. Eventually, the workbench will become unlocked for use, and you’ll then be able to change your lightsaber’s color to red.
