Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, you can customize your lightsaber in a number of ways, creating something that’s unique to you. Unfortunately, lightsaber blade colors are much harder to come by. In this guide, we’ll tell you all the different colors you can turn your lightsaber, and how you unlock them.

At the start of Fallen Order, Cal’s lightsaber is blue. When you first get the chance to customize the blade, you can switch out the color to green if you’d like. If you pre-ordered Fallen Order, you can also turn your lightsaber orange.

Blue and green (and orange with the pre-order) are the only lightsaber colors you’ll have access to for most of Fallen Order. If you’re looking for more colors, scroll past the spoiler image. If you don’t want to get spoiled, just keep playing through the main story.

When Cal accidentally breaks his lightsaber on Dathomir, you’ll go to the famed Jedi Temple on Ilum to fix it. At the end of the Kyber crystal cave, you’ll repair your saber and unlock five new colors:

  • Purple
  • Yellow
  • Cyan
  • Magenta
  • Indigo

Once you’ve finished this part of the main quest, you’ll have seven (eight with the pre-order) different colors to choose from.

If you’re itching for a non-traditional lightsaber color like purple, you’ll need to rush through the story first. And sadly for Sith fans, there’s not a way to make Cal’s lightsaber red.
