In Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, the main character Cal has many different abilities that he can unlock as he tries to survive as he is being hunted by Imperial Inquisitors while seeking to restore the Jedi Order. One of the abilities in Jedi Fallen Order is being able to hack the droids and turn them to your side as you go through areas. In this guide, we will show you how to hack droids in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order and unlock the hacking ability.
How to Hack Droids in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order
As you progress through the story, you will be able to hack both the Probe droids and Security droids. You will receive the ability for BD-1 to hack droids after you complete the Tomb of Miktrull on Zeffo in Jedi Fallen Order. This is the second tomb on the planet after you finish the Tomb of Eilram.
Below we’ll give you the locations of both Droid hacking abilities in Jedi Fallen Order.
How to hack Probe Droids
To be able to hack the probe droids, go to the Imperial Headquarters on Zeffo. The ability can be unlocked near the elevator to the Tomb of Miktrull.
Once you have unlocked the ability to hack Probe droids, you can use it anywhere. To hack a Probe Droid, you’ll need to get close to it. The best way to do this is to use Force Pull on the droid. It will bring it right into your hands.
Then press down on the D-Pad when the prompt appears. BD-1 will then hop onto the Droid, and when its eyes turn from red to blue, which means that now it’ll be under your control. The Probe Droid will then float around and fire the occasional laser at your enemies.
How to hack Security Droids
Getting the ability to hack the Security droids is somewhat tougher than probe droids. Go to the meditation circle at the Imperial Refinery just after you leave the Forest Trench and look for a path on the right that leads to a spinning platform.
Use slow ability on it and cross over and climb up to find an area with a workbench. Examine the workbench to get the ability to hack Security Droids.
To hack a security droid, first, you will have to damage it to less than a quarter of its total health. Then get close to it to get a prompt to hack it.
BD-1 will do its job and the Security Droid will fight on your side. Note that the hack will stay only for a limited time and will be reversed
