Get the Double-Bladed Lightsaber in Jedi: Fallen Order
Fittingly for the weapon made iconic by Darth Maul, the double-bladed lightsaber is found on the planet of Dathomir. This world is far from easy, but you can actually get the double-bladed lightsaber much earlier than you might expect. As soon as you gain access to interplanetary travel and can leave Bogano, you’ll be presented with the choice between Zeffo and Dathomir. Zepho will continue the main story, while Dathomir presents a stark challenge but rewards for those who head there early.
A word of Warning: If you make your way to Dathomir early, be prepared for a challenge. If you’re playing on the higher difficulty settings (Jedi Master and up) then the enemies here will be pretty tough if this is your first stop after Bogano. With that caveat out of the way, here’s how to get the double-bladed lightsaber in Jedi: Fallen Order.
You’ll need to progress through Dathomir until you reach the mysterious cloaked stranger and a jump you can’t cross without unlocking a new force power. Don't worry, you won't need it to get the upgrade. Apart from a few hidden treats, progress through Dathomir is fairly linear, so keep going upwards, fighting past the spiders and Nightbrother warriors (watch out for shots from their archers) until you reach the far side of a shortcut door. This won’t be too long after you jump down to a lower level and swing across some vines.
Once you’ve opened the shortcut doorand reached the platform with the cloaked traveller, you need to turn back on yourself. Look down and to the right and you’ll spot a path running down the edge of the cliff, and along the way is a workbench. Interact with the bench and Cal will, of his own accord, upgrade his lightsaber to include a dual-bladed version.

The double-bladed lightsaber is extremely cool and certainly fun to fight with, but it’s designed primarily for crowd control on a group of weaker enemies. It deals less damage than the single-bladed lightsaber, meaning you won’t want to use it all the time. Still, it’s well worth learning how to get the double-bladed lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order as it makes a cool addition to your collection early on.
