Tatooine Datacron Locations

Anchorhead – +3 Cunning (Republic)

  1. Start north of the spaceport, outside of town and looking at the large square building at the northwest corner of the base.
  2. Run up the dune and jump onto the wall and turn left, following the wall around until you hit a building’s roof. Jump onto the ledge and cross the rooftops, back onto the outer wall.
  3. Use the outer wall as a bridge to the next rooftop. Jump from rooftop to rooftop, until you reach an awning. Cross the awning to one of the cables holding it up, and cross over to yet another roof. Keep moving along the outer wall of town, using your current rooftop to make a long and dangerous jump back to a tall wall.
  4. Use the wall to reach another rooftop, and another awning. Climb onto the rooftop, then hop onto a ledge to climb onto the rooftop with the dome.
  5. You want to be on the large domed building south of the northern wall, connected by two walls of its own. From the domed roof, circle around while looking down below until you spot that Datacron. Simply jump down to collect it.

Mos Ila – +3 Cunning (Imperial)

  1. Start your search at about X: 442, Y: 3088, on a large cliff overlooked a red awning. Jump onto the awning, and cross over and jump down to the building roof, then down to the lower roof.
  2. Continue up north, looking for a wall to use as a bridge to reach another rooftop. Use the wall to cross east and climb up to the domed roof.
  3. Drop from the ledge down onto a wall, using the exhaust and wall to reach a tall scaffolding near a pipe near a narrow platform.
  4. Get to the narrow platform with some jumps, and follow it to a pipe attached to a wall. Use the pipe to reach a vent, then another scaffolding, until you can make it to another rooftop.
  5. From the rooftop, circle around south until you can see a section of wall between two buildings. Use the wall as your pathway, continuing south until you see the Datacron on a roof below you.

Jundland – Eastern Wound – +3 Willpower

  1. Jump onto the cliff ledge at X: 2076, Y: 440 and look down for a cavern below.
  2. Prepare yourself for lots of Sand People, they aren’t easy. Hop down into the cave and fight your way straight forward through the mobs, the Datacron is just at the end of the cave, as you exit.

Jundland – Transport Ship Crash Site – +3 Aim

  1. Search the western edge of the crash site for a ramp leading up. Go up there, looking down over the cliff for a ledge leading down to a broken piece of a space ship.
  2. Once you find the spaceship debris, at X: -630, Y: -29 you’ll be good to go. Jump jump down carefully from ledge to ledge until you reach the wreckage and can collect the Datacron.

The Dune Sea – The Ten Thousand Grains – +3 Strength and Blue Matrix Shard

  1. Both of these are nearby, but this is a secretive set of Datacrons. To find them, climb up onto a Sandcrawler at X: -2332, Y: 3 in the far southwest corner of the Dune Sea.
  2. A very, very slow balloon circle the Dune Sea, and you’ll have to wait for it to float by so that you can board it. The balloon takes about forty full minutes to make a round trip around the Dune Sea.
  3. Jump onto the balloon from your first Sandcrawler, and keep a lookout for a second Sand Crawler. When the balloons passes by, jump onto the roof to find the first Datacron.
  4. Don’t leave yet, the Blue Matrix Shard is on the roof, but there’s a +3 Strength Datacron off to the side.
  5. While on the Sandcrawler roof, search the ledges around X: -2391, Y: -1381, then jump down to the ledge below to find the last Datacron on Tatooine.

Jundland – Eastern Wound – +3 Willpower Location is not X: 2076, Y: 440 instead it is more like X: 2076, Y: -440 the Y is flipped.

Thanks for the great Tuts.

The Dune Sea – The Ten Thousand Grains – +3 Strength and Blue Matrix Shard

For these, an other trick, much faster, is to have someone with an attack that throw back an opponent, like imperial agent with their pulse shot (not sure of the skill name). You have to duel the person, put yourself not too far from the sandcrawler and the person going on it have to jump while the other time correctly the skill, throwing you straight on the thing. Might need to try a few times to time it correctly but I does work as I used it myself.

Thanks for Tuts!

Jundland – Eastern Wound keeps saying I have to complete missions first before getting…I have completed mission. Anyone else have this issue?
