Star Wars Jedi Survivor Swindler’s Wash Essence is a collectible that can be easily missed if you don’t take your time exploring the first area Cal visits once he reunites with Greez.
However, because 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 as soon as you leave Rambler’s Reach Outpost, looking for the Forest Gate.
Luckily, you don’t need a particular skill to obtain the Swindler’s Wash Essence collectible, but you need to know where to look for it because it’s a bit hard to spot.
As you can guess, throughout the following guide, we’ll discuss this specific collectible and how to get to it.
Koboh Swindler’s Wash Essence Location Map
Below you can see the full map of the Swindler’s Wash area as it appears in the latest video game developed by Respawn Entertainment, as well as the location of the Essence collectible you need to find.
Before moving forward, it is worth knowing that you can make this type of collectible appear on your map by solving the Alignment Control Center Screens Puzzle, thus unlocking the Essence Map Upgrade.
The problem is that for the said puzzle, you’ll need to finish the story first.
So, assuming you just started your journey, here is how to obtain the Star Wars Jedi Survivor Essence in Swindler’s Wash area of Koboh.
Essence #1 (Health Essence): On Top Of A Stone Pillar
The Essence you must collect sits on top of a stone pillar in a clearing where you’ll need to deal with a Bilemaw, a giant creature similar to a dinosaur.
To get to it, while facing the collectible pictured above, on the right side, you should see a wall. Use Cal’s wall-run ability to get across 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 when you reach the end and grab the edge of the wall.
In front of you is a cave where you’ll find one of the three Swindler’s Wash Treasures we covered here.
Now, while standing at the cave’s entrance, facing the waterfall, on the left side, you can spot another wall you can run on.
When you reach its end, double jump and can land on the closest pillar. From here, simply double-jump again to get on the pillar where the Essence collectible awaits.
Interact with it, and you’re done, but before leaving this area, make sure you also get the remaining Swindler’s Wash collectibles we covered as part of our Star Wars Wiki here.
