How to hack the droids in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, an intelligent droid joins the tradition of the franchise in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The name BD-1 might not be as famous as R2-D2 or BB-8, but it has interesting abilities that will help Padawan Cal Kestis uncover many of the game’s mysteries.

Today we are going to show you how to use the little robot to hack enemy droids, which can be very useful in battle. You will see how and where to unlock the hack ability and understand how to use it on the Empire’s probe or security droids.

Let’s get to the guide!

How to unlock the ability to hack droids with the BD-1

The ability to hack droids will be unlocked once Cal completes Miktrull’s tomb on the planet Zeffo. This is the second tomb on this planet, right after Eilram’s tomb.

Still, you need to visit two special workbenches to complete the hacking feature.

How to hack probe droids in Star Wars Jedi

Hacking the probe droids is the easiest task. To unlock the skill, head to the Imperial Headquarters on the planet Zeffo. There will be a workbench next to the elevator leading to Miktrull’s tomb.

After activating the skill, use the Force to pull the flying droids towards you, then press the button indicated on the screen. If you’re playing with a joystick, just press the directional pad down. The probe droid will act in rebellion and shoot lasers at the stormtroopers.

How to hack security droids in Star Wars Jedi

The ability to hack security droids (those larger robots) is a bit more hidden than the previous one. It is unlocked from a workbench on the planet Kashyyk during the mission in which you have to free the Wookies (the species of Chewbacca).

Defeat the droid first

To find it, you must first defeat the droid and free the prisoners. Shortly after, as you exit the prison block to the outside (Moat), look to the right to see a rope.

Jump on it and swing to the next rope to reach some kind of alcove. The bank with the BD-1 upgrade will be there.

After installing the skill on BD-1, you can hack Security Droids. However, it is necessary to lower their health to about ¼ of the total. They are much more resistant to soldiers and can take out several of them, saving some of your effort in battle.

Hacking can bring success

Depending on the platform you are playing on, killing a Stormtrooper with a hacked droid will award you with the Don’t Mess With BD-1 trophy/achievement. Remember that hacks are not permanent. After a period of time, the robots return to their normal state.
