Fallen into the Jedi Survivor Spawn of Oggdo pit and left scratching your head as to how to beat them? As introductions go, first meeting the offspring of Oggdo Bogdo comes as a surprise as Cal Kestis plummets into their lair via a trap door, coaxed into picking up a collectible atop one of the buildings in Fort Kah’lin on planet Koboh no far from Rambler’s Reach Outpost.

Channelling all the tongue-slinging aggression of their ancestor, who you likely slayed in the first game Fallen Order, the Spawn of Oggdo is a tough boss fight and probably the hardest you’ve come across in Star Wars Jedi Survivor so far. While you can toy with the Jedi Survivor lightsaber colours and customization to no end, nothing other than sheer skill and perseverance will win the fight. Though you can’t pass the controller over to us when you face the Spawn of Oggdo, we have a few tips that should up your chance of coming out on top and set you on the path to take on more of the Jedi Survivor bosses.

Jedi Survivor Spawn of Oggdo boss tips

The Spawn Oggdo unleashes several unblockables – red glowing attacks that can’t be parried or blocked. Much of the fight is about avoiding these, as they will tear through your health. There is one in particular that will one-shot you. The giant frog opens his mouth, deploys his tongue, and throws it in your direction. If it latches on to you, Oggdo will pull you to their mouth and chomp, killing you and dropping you back at the last visited meditation point. Dodging this attack, and any of the Spawn’s other glowing red attacks, for that matter, is key to surviving and winning the fight.

Another glowing red unblockable attack to watch out for is Spawn of Oggdo’s dash bite attack, where the beast lunges at Cal and chomps, leaving him with only a sliver of health. Though the attack is highly telegraphed, the wind-up is deceptively long and timing a dodge. While dodging is your chief evasion manoeuvre to avoid these attacks, double jumping is equally versatile in this fight, particularly for the boss’ glowing red jump and poison-spewing attacks. 

You can land hits after dodging and jumping attacks but don’t overstay your welcome and keep as much distance when you aren’t actively damaging Oggdo so you get plenty of space to anticipate subsequent attacks. The Spawn of Oggdo’s basic attacks are bites that you can parry quite easily, depleting the creature’s block metre, eventually stunning them and allowing you to get in three or four easy hits. These basic bites usually come in twos, though you’ll want to avoid attacking immediately after the second in case there’s a third, which does occasionally happen.

From there, the fight is all about attrition. Play defensively, avoid the red glowing attacks, and get in hits as and when it’s safe to do so. Don’t hesitate to use Cal’s slow ability and learn how to throw your lightsaber to chip away at Oggdo’s health bar from a distance. We recommend taking your first few tries to learn the Spawn of Oggdo’s move set, in particular the red glowing attacks.
