Star Wars Jedi: Survivor – How to defeat the legendary enemy Rancor
The rancor is located on the planet Koboh in a small cave system called The Soaked grotto.
The entrance to this area is fairly close to the outpost of Rambler’s Reach, a small town that acts as a hub for most of the game. In fact, an NPC near the fast travel point will tell you a rumor about missing miners.
Since you reach this area early in the campaign, you may be tempted to delve deeper into the Sodden Grotto.
Here’s what you can expect:
- The tunnels are dark and dimly lit, so you’ll need to hold down the lock button to light up your lightsaber. Watch out for narrow openings you can walk through.
- There are a few enemy creatures here, as well as some Force Echoes and BD-1 scans.
- At the end of the cave system you will see a fast travel point. Beyond is a larger chamber, Rancor’s Den.
