A spin-off of Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast where you play as Kyle Katarn's Padawan, Jaden. This game features the ability to create a custom character and a custom lightsaber.

To do:
There are a lot of other leftovers from Jedi Outcast, including items and NPCs.

Unused Weapons

Most of these weapons are used by NPCs or mounted on vehicles, but they can't be normally obtained by the player making them go unused. They can all be obtained through the console command "give [Weapon Name]".

Stun Baton (weapon_stun_baton)

A leftover from Jedi Outcast. It is fully functional and can be accessed through the Inventory.

Bryar Pistol (weapon_bryar_pistol)

Kyle Katarn's blaster pistol from Jedi Outcast. Kyle can be seen using it on the Byss level. It does the exact same thing as the DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol.

Tusken Cycler Rifle (weapon_tusken_rifle)

The rifle used by the Tusken Raiders. It is sightly buggy and has no first person viewmodel.

Gaffi Stick (weapon_tusken_staff)

The staff used by the Tusken Raiders. It does no damage.

Scepter of Ragnos (weapon_scepter)

The scepter that Tavion uses to resurrect Ragnos. It's buggy, but it works. It is possible that the player would obtain it if [s]he turned to the dark side.

E-Web Blaster Gun (weapon_emplaced_gun)

A portable version of the E-Web Blaster Turrets. It has no model.

TIE Fighter Cannon (weapon_tie_fighter)

This is the cannon from the Byss mission that is used to shoot down the TIE fighters. It's also a leftover from a similar cannon in Jedi Knight 2.

Noghri Stick (weapon_noghri_stick)


The Noghri's poision spray stick can be obtained. Unfortunately it just crashes the game when fired.

Jawa's Ionization Blaster (weapon_jawa)

There is a leftover reference to the Jawas' ionization blaster in the files. Nothing remains of the weapon's coding.


Melee can be used in multiplayer, but not normally in singleplayer. It can be activated in singleplayer using the command "iknowkungfu".

Unused Vehicles

These can all be accessed with the command "npc spawn vehicle [vehicle name]".

Z-95 Headhunter (z-95) Jaden's ship. It is very glitchy when it crashes into something.

X-wing (x-wing) Wedge's X-wing fighter. It is also extremely buggy.

TIE Fighter (tie-fighter) A TIE fighter. It is also very buggy.

TIE Bomber (tie-bomber) Like the others, it's very buggy.

TIE Bomber 2 (tie-bomber2) An alternate version of the TIE Bomber. It's pretty much the same thing.

Lambda Class Imperial Shuttle (lambdashuttle) Same as all the others.

Rideable Rancor (rancor_vehicle) A rideable version of the rancor. It is functional and the player can use their lightsaber and the blaster rifle on it.

Unused Force Power

If you cheat and get Mind Trick level 4, you can use this power to take control of NPCs. The only problem is that any weapons that aren't lightsabers fire very fast.

Sith Sword

You can obtain Tavion's sword by typing in the command "saber sith_sword". It's buggy and has very high damage stats. It is possible that the player would get it along with the Scepter if [s]he turned to the dark side.

Unused Area

On the Tatooine spaceport level there is a locked door up some stairs. If you noclip behind it you will find 3 unused rooms including one with an unused Chewbacca NPC.

Unused Graphics

JKJA i icon ammodisp.png

An obviously temporary texture. The name suggests it was an inventory icon for the ammo dispenser.

JKJA i icon healthdisp.png

Another obviously temporary texture. The name suggests it was an inventory icon for a health dispenser, but there is no health dispenser in the game.

Unused NPCs

In the archive assets1.pk3 is data for unused NPCs. It is stored in "\ext_data\npcs\".

These can all be accessed by using the command "npc spawn [npc_name]"

Data there include a dummied out 'test' NPC, a 'rocks' NPC (this may be used, but nobody would know it was an NPC without accessing the game's internal files), an interrogator droid ('interrogator'), 'seeker,' which spawns a floating mouse droid that fires DL-44 blasts at the player and player ally NPCs, different species of reborn cultists ('rebornchiss,' 'rebornrodian,' 'rebornweequay'), a dark side commando that dual wields DL-44s ('cultistcommando'), an Ugnaught ('ugnaught'), Mon Mothma ('monmothma'), Jan ('jan', left over from Jedi Outcast), Lando Calrissian ('lando'), a Tavion NPC using the old model ('tavion', also from Jedi Outcast), a Swamptrooper ('swamptrooper') and 'cultist_destroyer,' which uses the 'cultist_drain' model, and has odd behavior.

An NPC copy of the player (normally reserved for cutscenes) can be spawned in game. It switches to whichever weapon the player is using and will attack NPCs with their team set to "NEUTRAL" or "ENEMY." This is normally never seen during gameplay, though using noclip in the map 't2_trip' can let players skip the trigger that activates the ending cutscene and see the 'player' as a separate NPC.

Unused Behaviors

Using the command 'playermodel luke' gives the player 200 force instead of 100. It's unclear whether this was a cut feature from when Luke was playable or an easter egg put in by the developers.

Setting the playermodel to 'rocks' negates fall damage. This is likely an unintentional result of the 'rocks' model's hitbox.

Editing the files to give protocol droids lightsabers will result in a behavior where if anything causes the droid to lose health, the lightsaber will ignite and the droid will walk towards whatever harmed it. Protocol droids have no attacks or attack animations and cannot swing the lightsabers. Jawas, if given lightsabers, will attempt to attack both the player and enemy NPCs.

It's unclear whether this is used at all, but the sound data for 'rocks' points to the jawa sound files.

Regional Differences

Dismemberment is always disallowed in German versions of the game because g_dismemberment is forced to 0. In other versions of the game, setting either the game's text or dialogue to German will also force g_dismemberment to be 0.


This game features the exact same anti-piracy measures as its predecessor.
