Warning: This article contains spoilers for Star Wars: Jedi Survivor
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor features many connective threads and deep cuts to the established lore of the decades-spanning sci-fi/fantasy franchise. Throughout Jedi Knight Cal Kestis’s journey across the galaxy, he’ll encounter familiar enemies to battle and overcome. However, one particular foe from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order made quite an impact on players who were brave enough to fight it, and it’s now back with a vengeance in the sequel.
In Survivor, players can get a rematch against the oddly named, but totally dangerous, Oggdo Bogdo — which was an original creation from Fallen Order. When most players first encountered the foe in Fallen Order, many were outmatched by its raw strength and high resiliance. The sequel takes things further by allowing players the chance to fight the “Spawn of Oggdo,” which shares the lethality of its parent, along with another more difficult battle that takes things further.
What is Oggdo Bogdo?
In Fallen Order, Oggdo Bogdo was an optional mini-boss located in Bogano. As something of a large frog-looking creature, it also possessed massive strength and agility. What made the original game’s fight against Oggdo Bogdo so memorable was its first and very sudden difficulty spike. The enemy was able to one-shot most players, and given its placement in one of the game’s starting areas, many felt compelled to try to defeat it.
Though intended as a purely optional fight, it became a rite of passage for most players to try their hand at Oggdo Bogdoa. The community chatter about Oggdo Bogdo eventually turned the boss into a meme, and EA and Respawn Entertainment even poked fun at the encounter on social media.

And with the return of the Oggdo Bogdo, many players are voicing similar concerns about the fight as they did with the original.
Where to Fight The Spawn of Oggdo
Much like the original game, you’re welcome to try your hand against Oggdo fairly early into the game. On the planet Kohbo, and after getting settled into the planet’s core open field known as Rambler’s Reach, you can immediately head to Fort Kah’lin, which can be found positioning the main settlement north and then looking towards the structures of the holo map directly southeast. Fort Kah’lin is a massive enemy base filled with raiders and their repurposed battle droids, and you’ll need to fight your way inside to reach the upper areas. Eventually, you’ll make it to an area with droids and a metal floor, which turns out to be a trap floor, which drops into a cavern with the Spawn of Oggdo.
Just like the first Oggdo, the Spawn is a noticeably challenging fight and possesses many unblockable attacks. It also has a lethal grab attack, which sees the creature grab you with its tongue and chomp up Cal, leading to instant death. It’s an unforgiving encounter, and it’ll require reading the mini-boss to overcome it. If you defeat the Spawn of Oggdo, you’ll be able to loot a chest to unlock Cal’s lost poncho from the original game — which has been a favorite among fans. For a more detailed breakdown on how to find and defeat the legendary enemy, you can find our breakdown in the guide.
How To Face A Tougher Battle
This particular encounter with the returning enemy doesn’t end here, however. Along with the cosmetic chest, there’s also an ominous little creature that stares at Cal, and upon examining it, players will get lore about the Oggdo fight, along with an alarming comment about how the little creature is “judging me.” For those curious enough to find out if this leads to anything, you can find the mysterious critter again in Doma’s shop right by Pyloon’s Saloon, which is where you can purchase Cal’s cosmetics.
Upon entering, you’ll find a Jedi Force Tear, optional encounters focusing on agility and combat. The strange creature from the cave will be resting near this particular Force Tear. Once you choose to examine, even Cal will voice his hesitance about what’s to come. This encounter will have you face the Spawn of Oggdo, along with the original Oggdo Bogdo from Fallen Order, together. Just like the previous encounters with the Oggdo Bogdos, this is an optional encounter, but you will be able to get a bonus buff to health, force, and skill points, which could be helpful for the journey ahead.
In IGN’s full review of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, reviews editor Dan Stapleton stated: “Star Wars Jedi: Survivor takes what Fallen Order achieved and wall-runs with it, then double-jumps and air-dashes straight into an epic lightsaber battle. Rather than taking us back to square one to begin Cal’s journey as a Padawan again, we’re trusted with control of a full-fledged Jedi Knight who we can grow into a master of superhuman mobility and fantastic and challenging combat.”
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a massive game with numerous battles that are off the beaten path.
