Star Wars Jedi Survivor Swindler’s Wash Essence is a collectible that’s easy to miss if you don’t take the time to explore the first area Cal visits after he reunites with Greez.
However, since it can be collected as soon as you enter Swindler’s Wash, and because this essence increases Cal’s maximum health, getting your hands on it should be a priority once you exit Rambler’s Reach Outpost and look for the Forest Gate.
Luckily, you don’t need any special skills to get the Swindler’s Wash Essence collectible, but you do need to know where to look for it as it’s a bit difficult to spot.
As you can imagine, in the guide below we will be discussing this particular collectible and how to get there.
Location map of Koboh Swindler’s Wash Essence
Below is the full map of the Swindler’s Wash area as it appears in the latest video game developed by Respawn Entertainment, along with the location of the Essence collectible you need to find.
Before proceeding, you should know that you can make this type of collectibles appear on your map by solving the Alignment Control Center screen puzzle, thereby unlocking the Essence Map upgrade.
The problem is that for said puzzle you have to finish the story first.
Assuming you’ve just started your journey, here’s how to get it Star Wars Jedi Survivor Essence in Swindler’s Wash in Koboh.
Essence #1 (Health Essence): On a stone pillar
The essence you need to collect is on a stone pillar in a clearing where you will have to deal with a Bilemaw, a huge creature that resembles a dinosaur.
To get there, while looking at the collectible pictured above, you should see a wall to the right. Use Cal’s Wall Run ability to get past the first small gap.
On the next plateau, hug the right side and perform another wall run on the right side wall, but make sure you double jump and grab the wall’s edge at the end.
Ahead of you is a cave where you’ll find one of the three Swindler’s Wash treasures we’ve covered here.
Now if you’re standing at the entrance of the cave and facing the waterfall, you can see another wall on the left that you can walk on.
When you reach its end, double jump and you can land on the next pillar. From here, just double jump again to get onto the pillar where the Essence collectible is waiting for you.
Interact with it and you’re done, but before you leave this area make sure you also get the remaining Swindler’s Wash collectibles that we’ve covered as part of our war of stars wiki here.
