Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order allows players to fulfill their Jedi fantasies by playing as Cal Kestis, a Jedi whose connection to the Force has been shattered by his traumatic past. Throughout the game, Cal will relive his training during the Clone Wars with his former master Jar Tapal.
In flashbacks, you and Cal will learn Jedi abilities such as wall running, forced pressure, and forced slowness. One of the more useful powers in the game is the double jump. However, this can’t be unlocked until the story continues, so you’ll have to be patient before you get this crucial ability.
Updated on June 28, 2023 by Sean Murray: Jedi need to be mobile, so we’ve refreshed this guide with improved design and breakout tips to help you learn the benefits of double jumping in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
When you unlock the double jump
You don’t have to worry about missing out on a chance to unlock the Double Jump (or Jedi Flip as the game calls it) since you’ve earned it during the main story. To be more specific, you get an ability in the fourth chapter when you make your own second visit to the Wookiee homeland, Kashyyyk.
You will go there when you receive a message about the possible meeting with Commander Tarfful.
You won’t double jump right away when you get to the planet. You have to first play about two-thirds of the chapter, which includes traversing Kashyyk’s wilds and coming face to face with the Ninth Sister.
But eventually you get to the point where you have to jump over some lung plants. And as you jump on them, suddenly, a flash will be triggered.
Complete The Flashback
A flashback shows another Jaro Tapal’s training. This one is about Jedi Flip. The Jedi Master wants it reach his position by jumping over a few platforms. And for this you need to use the ability to double jump.
It works the same in this game as it does in almost every other title that includes the ability. You simply jump once, then when you’re in the air, press the jump button again.
In a session with Tapal, you just have to use a move to cross the three gaps before immediately bringing you back to Kashyyyk. When this happens, you have the double jump power whenever and wherever you want.
Where to use the double jump
Jedi Flip is above all used for platforming and rarely used during combat. Double Jump can only be used during battle when the player is running to a higher platform or to double jump in Force Repulse.
While the ability’s combat capabilities are limited, its main purpose is research. After all, when you double jump, you jump higher and further.
Jedi Flip can be used for access areas you couldn’t reach beforeas top of the source tree, nightmare ruins and tomb of Kujet on Dathomir, Venator on Zeffand more.
