Black Lightsaber

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is an action-adventure game developed by LucasArts and part of The Force Unleashed multimedia project. It was initially developed for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360 consoles and on iOS, second-generation N-Gage, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, and Java-equipped mobile phone handhelds. The game was released in North America on September 16, 2008, in Australia and Southeast Asia on September 17, and in Europe on September 19.

The game saw great commercial success which led to a Nintendo Switch release down the road. This version is basically an enhanced remaster of the Wii version, developed by Aspyr Studios, and is set to be released on April 20, 2022.


According to the story of the game, the player plays as Starkiller, the secret apprentice of Darth Vader. With an unending hatred nurtured by Vader himself, Starkiller has been trained to hunt down and destroy the Jedi.

Starkiller uses a powerful lightsaber of his own that, while incredibly powerful in his hands, can also be customized to look aesthetically pleasing as per the player’s tastes. Today, we will be talking about one of the crystals in the game, the Black Lightsaber Crystal, and how it affects the properties of Starkiller’s lightsaber.

Black Lightsaber Crystal

In order to acquire the Black Lightsaber Crystal, players need to go to the big room in the Death Star where all of the lasers converge (before going in the room to fight Darth Vader). The Black Lightsaber crystal Holocron sits on top of one of the lasers all the way at the top of the room.

The easiest way to get it is to ride the gravity lift beam all the way to the top. Once at the top of the gravity lift beam, a simple dash followed by a dashing blast will get Starkiller on top of the laser. Then it’s just a matter of walking on over and collecting the Black Lightsaber. It might be tricky at first to do this, but don’t give up!

As mentioned before, this effect is purely aesthetic. It is one of the color crystals in the game that only alter the look of the lightsaber and there are ways to obtain other crystals that go to different slots, which affect your lightsaber’s stats as well, but that’s a story for another day!
