The Koboh Gorge Crash Site Essence is one of the 14 Star Wars Jedi Survivor collectibles you must find and retrieve in the first area of the second planet Cal explores looking for Greez.
The Star Wars Jedi Survivor Gorge Crash Site Essence is just as tricky as the first Koboh Force Tear we already covered, meaning that it requires a particular skill.
Furthermore, the Koboh Gorge Crash Site Essence is a reward you’ll receive for completing an easy task, which means you won’t be able to find it hidden in a tunnel or on top of a platform.
So, if you wonder how to get the Essence in the Gorge Crash Site of Planet Koboh, throughout the following guide, we’ll tell you where you should look for it.
Koboh Gorge Crash Site Essence Location Map
As you can notice on our Gorge Crash Site map below, the Essence collectible in this area is found close to the Derelict Dam border.
This means that you have to progress through this region following the main objective, which during your first visit, requires Cal to find Greez.
As you approach the location marked on the map above, eventually, you’ll reach a Tar Pit. After solving the Tar Pit Puzzle and raising the platform in the middle, you’ll be able to ascend to the next level.
Essence #1 (Force Essence): On The Tar Pit Platform
Immediately after reaching the upper level, if you look around, you’ll spot a platform that’s partially submerged in a smaller Tar Pit.
The Gorge Crash Site Essence collectible in Star Wars Jedi Survivor is on top of the platform in the small pit; however, to obtain it, you have to lift the platform, which requires Cal’s Force Lift ability.
The Force Lift ability unlocks during the fourth chapter of the game, which means that once you obtain it, you’ll have to retrace your steps to the platform above.
With the Force Lift ability unlocked, approach the platform and press +/+ on your Xbox/PlayStation controller.
When the platform is raised, on it, you should see the Essence collectible, which provides an additional Skill Point for Cal Kestis.
Now that you know where to find the Essence in this area, it is also worth outlining that this collectible plays an important role when it comes to unlocking a new Cantina Recruit.
Or, simply put, by raising the platform, you’ll help the Pit Droid, one of the 11 Cantina Recruits Cal must find during his journey. If you need help with their locations, simply visit our Star Wars Jedi Survivor Wiki Hub here.
