While trying to find Greez in the Star Wars Jedi Survivor Eventually, in the Gorge Crash Site area of the planet Koboh, you’ll come across Tar Pit, where Cal Kestis needs to be extra careful and solve a small puzzle involving multiple mines or bombs if you want.
The Tar Pit Bombs puzzle is mandatory to advance the story and progress through the Gorge Crash Site, but it can also be deadly because if you spend too much time in the tar pit you will eventually drown.
Fortunately, although the Tar Pit Mines are quite dangerous, they help Cal to escape from the deadly black substance and in the following guide we are going to tell you how to solve this puzzle and avoid getting killed.
Where to find the tar pit in the canyon crash site
As you can see on the map below, the Gorge Crash Site Tar Pit is near the trailhead to Derelict Dam.
On your map, this area is dark purple in color, and when you first reach it, you’ll need to find a way to cross it.
As said, this happens during Cal’s first visit to Koboh Planet after escaping Coruscant. As you make your way toward Greez’s location, you’ll come across the tar-filled black swamp. Let’s see how to cross it.
How to solve the Tar Pit Bombs Puzzle on Koboh
As you approach the tar pit, make sure you notice the metal platform floating in the middle of the black swamp.
From the yellow tube, double jump towards it, then move as fast as you can and climb up it.
When you are on the metal platform, the first thing you should do is scan the tar with BD-1 and unlock one of the four entries in the Gorge Crash Site Databank.
Now look around and you should see two mines or bombs. These bombs will help you escape from the deadly trap.
Hold while facing one of them / on your PlayStation/Xbox controller to pull the bomb towards you. press now / to quickly throw it at the crack in the dam nearby (see image below).
The idea here is to release the tar behind the dam you blast so that it fills the pit below and thus pushes up the platform you are standing on.
After pulling the bomb towards you, throw it as quickly as possible; Otherwise, it will explode and deal a lot of damage.
Once you’ve solved this little riddle in the tar pit, you’ll reach the upper floor where you’ll find a cute pit droid looking for help.
By helping him you will unlock one of the 11 Cantina Recruits and you will get the Gorge Crash Site Essence as we have explained here.
Well done! After solving this riddle, check out ours Star Wars Jedi Survivor Wiki if you need help exploring more areas.
