This page of the guide to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order focuses on the duel with the Ninth Sister taking place in the fourth chapter. This is one of the most important and challenging bosses in this game. Thanks to our walkthrough, you will learn about the Ninth Sister's attacks as well as how to effectively attack the boss.
The duel with the Ninth Sister takes place during your second visit to Kashyyyk in chapter 4. The boss fight is preceded by an extensive exploration. The fight will begin shortly after flying on the back of the big Shyyyo bird and arriving at the Chieftain's Canopy.
Don't forget to rest at the meditation spot and interact with the workbench to get a double-bladed lightsaber. After that, go to the bird visible in the distance. Interact with the creature - this will trigger the fight with the Ninth Sister.
The first phase
The Ninth Sister fights mainly with her lightsaber. Usually, she performs a series of three swings that can be blocked or parried. She can also use red attacks - in this case, the only effective solution is to dodge to the side or back. Her red attacks are:
- A 360 degrees spin.
- A lightsaber thrust.
- A jump followed by a lightsaber slam (example in the picture above).
Red attacks can be stopped by Force Push but this is rather risky. The important thing is to look for opportunities to strike the boss after she finishes her attack or after she misses with a red attack.
The Ninth Sister can also use the Force - she has access to Force Push and Force Pull. They can temporary stun or paralysis Cal. Wait for the moment when you regain control over the main character and quickly dodge to the side to avoid the boss' lightsaber attack.
A good tactic is to keep attacking the Ninth Sister to deplete her stamina bar. As a reminder, the boss's stamina is displayed by the white bar above her head.
You can deplete the Sister's stamina bar by attacking her repeatedly but Force Push is a better solution.
When the Ninth Sister loses the entire stamina bar, start attacking her with the lightsaber - she won't be able to defend herself. Try to deal the boss as much damage as possible before she starts to defend properly again.
The second phase
The second phase of the fight with the Ninth Sister starts when she loses about 1/3 of the health. This will be triggered by a short cut-scene. The Ninth Sister will start using a double-bladed lightsaber. It's a good idea to choose an identical lightsaber from the main character's inventory. However, this is optional and you can stay with the "normal" lightsaber.
The Ninth Sister acquired not only a new weapon, but also new attacks:
- A jump combined with a lightsaber spin - example in picture 1
- A double-bladed lightsaber throw - example in picture 2
In both cases, you can play defensively and decide to dodge, block or even parry them - these are normal attacks.
The Ninth Sister's much more dangerous new attack is her red charge. You can't block this type of attack - dodge to the side. You have to practice to learn the proper timing for a dodge.
You should focus on depleting the boss's stamina bar. This will allow you to break through the Ninth Sister's defense and damage her with a series of lightsaber strikes.
During this duel, you will have a few lightsaber struggles. Press the specified button rapidly (it will change!) to avoid getting damaged.
The third phase
The third phase starts "unofficially" when the boss has 1/3 of her health bar left. The Ninth Sister can now hit the ground and cause a shock wave (example in the picture). Use double jump to avoid getting damaged.
Another problem with the third phase is that the boss can use two charges in a row. Don't get caught and always be ready to dodge.
The duel with the Ninth Sister will end with the final lightsaber struggle. Win, and you will trigger a cut-scene.
