The Freight Handling Depot Essence is one of the Star Wars Jedi Survivor collectibles you won’t be able to retrieve when you first visit the loading hangar on Coruscant because, similar to the Undercity Meats Treasure, it requires a specific skill you’ll unlock via story progression.
Nevertheless, the Coruscant Freight Handling Depot Essence is mandatory for reaching 100% completion in this area of the video game developed by Respawn Entertainment; therefore, throughout the guide below, we’ll discuss its location and how to obtain it.
The Freight Handling Depot, which is a large hangar, features three collectibles, and one of them is the Essence.
While the Freight Handling Depot Chest and the Databank Scan can be obtained when Cal Kestis reaches the hangar on Coruscant for the first time, the Essence requires a bit of backtrack. Here is where to look for it.
Coruscant Freight Handling Depot Essence Location Map
As you can see on the map below, the Essence collectible inside the Coruscant Freight Handling Depot sits behind a red Blocked Gate on the upper level.
The gate marked on the map above is, in fact, a green forcefield that stops you from accessing the room behind, precisely the room where the Essece awaits. Let’s see what you have to do to get this collectible.
Essence #1 (Skill Point): Behind A Green Door Barrier
To be able to retrieve the Star Wars Jedi Survivor Freight Handling Depot Essence, you must progress through the story and reach Jedha Pilgrim’s Sanctuary.
After completing the associated mission, Cal learns two essential abilities: Air Dash and Merrin’s Charm.
The Air Dash is the one you’ll need to access the Essence, so after you unlock the Air Dash ability, fast travel back to Coruscant and the Freight Handling Depot Meditation point.
Retrace your steps back to the first area of the hangar, and while on the top floor, you should see a conveyor belt moving some crates.
The idea here is to grapple on one of the crates (pictured below) while it moves towards the green barrier by pressing /.
When close to the barrier, jump by pressing /, then quickly Air Dash (press /) through the green forcefield.
Now, inside the room behind the barrier, take a right turn, and you should see the Essence close to another blue forcefield.
Interact with it, and you’ll get a Skill Point you can spend to improve Cal’s abilities.
Now that you know where to find the Essence, it’s worth knowing that even if this is the first collectible you can see in the Freight Handling Depot area, it is the last one you’ll be able to obtain.
Therefore make sure you check our Star Wars Jedi Survivor Wiki Guides if you need help with the other two.
