In order to claim the full slate of Achievements and Trophies for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you’ll need to take out several legendary creatures. The first one you’ll encounter is the Rancor. Below, we’ll take you through how to find it and an easy way to defeat him even at low levels.

Where to find the Rancor in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

The Rancor is near the beginning of the game. By the Rambler’s Reach Meditation point, you’ll find a lady asking you to find the missing prospectors. It’s a side quest.

Head up the ledge on your left, pop into the cave/shaft and dredge ahead. You’ll come to a new area called Sodden Grotto. All you need to do is make your way through the caves until you find the Rancor near the end.

How to beat the Rancor

Now remember,  it’s a Rancor and is silly strong. If you’re a sadist in these games like I am you head in straight away on hard difficulty. Fortunately, his timing is very easy to get down to take him out. First, just hangout out far away but close enough to launch your light Saber at him to wittle him down. If he comes in to try and pick you up, simply dodge (don’t jump) and get in a few hits before he gets back up. Then back away and keep tossing your Saber.

He’ll also try and use a long range Shockwave.  You can dodge this, but it’s easier to double jump over. Keep throwing your Saber. His only other attack is this double ground pound where he slams the ground twice. After he does this, you can get in around 3 hits before you’ll need to back off again.

The Rancor can be beaten easily, you just need to have patience because he can one or two shot you near the start of the game. Taking him out gets you a perk as well as 7 collectibles and a meditation point in the grotto itself.
