How to Farm XP Early On in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order

We go over how to quickly earn experience in Fallen Order.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order provides numerous force and lightsaber powers with which to cut your way through the Empire's minions, but all of these require experience - and some of them require a lot. We'll be going over how to quickly farm exp and earn new moves here.

How to Farm Experience in Fallen Order

We found that the best way to rapidly make experience is to simply find a checkpoint close to lots of easy enemies, kill all of them, then run back to the checkpoint and reload. Platforming and exploration is a big part of the game, but unless you find a collectible, you don't actually gain experience from it. Consequently, if you want to make experience fast, you want to maximise combat and minimise jumping.

Where to Farm Experience

Following the rules above, the best spot we found was pretty early in the game, an area in Zeffo named the Weathered Monument. There's an open area with half a dozen stormtroopers of various types, a little way before you start to enter the subterraneum temple.

True, stormtroopers of this calibre don't give much experience, but they're easy to beat, die quickly and respawn when you go back to the nearest meditation point - which just so happens to be about twenty feet away. See the map below for the exact location, but by repeating this pattern we found you could earn a level roughly every five minutes, even in the late game. It's also a very easy area, meaning you're unlikely to get killed and have your progress reset at any point.
