A Bag Full of Explosives

After defeating Captain Phasma in the previous mission, you will begin the next mission outside the Starkiller base. Head towards the marked entrance.

Upon entering, your task will be to place four bombs at the supporting columns. The area is heavily guarded, but you can eliminate enemies with surprise attacks. To do this, sneak behind them and press the stealth button (Triangle/Y button on your controller). Their limited field of view makes it easier. You can also observe their cone of vision, which is symbolized by an orange cone.

You can plant the bombs in any order at the marked spots. Interact with each spot to plant the bomb.

After planting the bombs, head back to the exit to advance to the Destroying Starkiller level.

Destroying Starkiller – challenges

This level has three challenges:

  1. You need to escape from the enemies targeting you three times to become a skilled pilot. This challenge must be completed in the first part of the mission. Whenever you receive a warning that an enemy missile is targeting you, roll left or right to avoid being hit.


  1. Snow Joke – Build a snowman from Kylo in Free Play mode. Reach the location where the second fight with Kylo Ren takes place. Instead of attacking the boss, destroy surrounding objects to create a snowman. Then switch to any unlocked Jedi character, position yourself behind the snowman, and wait for Kylo Ren to appear. Quickly press the Force button to push the snowman towards the boss and cause a collision. If you miss, you must restart the level to try again because the snowman cannot be rebuilt.
  2. Keeping a Cool Head – Shoot helmets off the heads of 5 snow stormtroopers between fights with Kylo Ren in the second part of the level. Target the headgear of common enemies with your blasters.

Destroying Starkiller – Spaceship Battles

This stage has two main parts. In the first part, you will pilot a spaceship and destroy the defense of the Starkiller base. You must destroy at least 10 fighters using the main cannon or torpedoes. Destroy 15 stationary cannons and 15 turrets, which are stationary objects attached to the base and marked as objectives and targets.

Pay attention to all notifications, especially those indicating that you are locked or targeted by the enemy. Perform a loop in the air (L1 R1 or LB RB on gaming controller) to react to typical lock targets or rollover (L1 or R1) to evade incoming rockets.

After destroying nearby fighters and defense systems, you will fly through a trench. Though it does not contain any specific targets, shoot at cannons and other objects to collect coins and potentially get some collectibles.

After completing this sequence, you will advance to a boss fight against Kylo Ren.

Destroying Starkiller – Kylo Ren Boss

Finn and Rey will take part in a fully-fledged duel with Kylo Ren boss. The duel consists of three parts, and in each of them, you must empty one of the boss’s health bars. Kylo Ren has red attacks that include long jumps combined with ground slams, charges, and flinging his lightsaber. Use dodge to avoid being hit by these attacks.

To effectively attack Kylo Ren, use a character equipped with a lightsaber such as Finn. Blaster attacks are not recommended as the boss can easily block or deflect them with his sword, which could result in the death of your hero. It’s also possible to block his attacks during melee combat.

The tactic of throwing a lightsaber at the boss is not included in our description of the duel as a bug may prevent it from working. However, if it works in your version of the game, you can use it to weaken the boss from a distance, but it’s not necessary to win the fight.

During the duel, there may be moments where QTE sequences involving button mashing will be triggered for melee combat with Kylo Ren.

After Kylo Ren loses the first of his three health bars, he will run away. You must chase him and destroy the objects he knocked over while making your way through the forest. You may encounter minor opponents along the way that can be ignored or defeated for an achievement.

In the second part of the fight with Kylo Ren, you must use the same strategy of avoiding red attacks and dealing damage. After emptying his second health bar, new QTE scenes with button mashing will be triggered and your lightsaber will be taken by Rey, while Finn switches to using a blaster.

In the third part of the fight, you must again focus on avoiding the boss’s special attacks and using the lightsaber to deal damage as Rey. Before attacking Kylo Ren, it’s better to get rid of the new mobs.

The duel ends with a cut-scene. Afterward, a short epilogue of Episode 7 is ahead of you. Follow BB-8 to the command center entrance, then head towards the landing site to use the team’s spaceship to plan your trip to Ahch-To, specifically to the Temple Island. Climb the stairs, and after reaching the meadow, you will meet Luke and end the episode.

Piece of the Resistance

Upon returning to the resistance base, a cut-scene will play before you head towards the landing site to use the team’s spaceship. You need to plan your trip to Ahch-To, specifically to the Temple Island. Climb the stairs and after reaching the meadow, you will meet Luke and end the episode.
