Jedi Fallen Order: How To Wall Run (& When It's Unlocked)

Respawn Entertainment's Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order includes a wall-running ability. Here's when players get it and how to actually wall run.

Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Wall Running Ability

One of the core gameplay aspects in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is wall-running, but how to wall run and when players gain access to the ability has come into question. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a product of Respawn Entertainment, one of EA's newest developers who are primarily known for developing the Titanfall series as well as the battle royale game Apex Legends. But while there's little cross-pollination between all these games, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order does share one thing in common with Titanfall: wall-running.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was developed by a brand-new team within Respawn Entertainment, but wall-running was always going to be a core element of the game's traversal. Getting from one area to the next - in the heat of battle or simply looking to explore a new part of the world - can be difficult in many games, and for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a new component was added on top of what players already expected. With wall-running, it can be relatively easy to move between areas, but it's not an ability that's available right away.

Cal Ketsis doesn't come with the ability to wall run in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order; it's something that he has to gain/unlock later on. When players do unlock the wall run ability in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, doing it is actually quite easy. All players have to do is run at a wall with ridges on it and jump; Cal will immediately begin running along the wall. As players reach the end of the wall, pressing the jump button again will allow them to jump off without breaking their run.

To get the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order wall-running ability, players will have to play through the Great Divide on the planet Bogano. When first arriving on the planet, it may be tempting to try to wall run at certain spots - perhaps to reach unopened boxes or unexplored areas - but players will have to be patient. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order's wall-running ability is naturally unlocked after exploring approximately a third of the planet and reaching a point in which Cal's former Master, Jaro Tapal, appears in a flashback sequence.

In that flashback, young Cal will learn how to wall run, and after players complete that task, they'll gain the ability to wall run in the story itself. From there, it's recommended to turn around and head back the way Cal came in order to discover a shortcut into the vault that Cere wants Cal to go into. Given that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a strictly story-based game, players should know that some abilities come in time and can't be unlocked simply by acquiring skill points.
