Unlike its predecessor, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 has up to five upgrade slots for each lightsaber in the game. Including 2 standard crystal apertures plus an option to add a cell, emitter and lens.

The good news is that this means that there are endless ways to customize your lightsaber. The bad news is that it also makes it difficult to know which crystals and combinations are the best.

Fortunately, we have put together the following guide to give you some of the best lightsaber crystals and sets in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2.

The best lightsaber crystals and fixtures in KOTOR 2

First, it’s important to keep in mind that crystals can be found in various locations throughout the game. While cells, emitters, and lenses can only be crafted once you have the appropriate materials and have a certain skill level. While you may find it easier to get the crystals, there are also more than 20 different types in KOTOR 2, so it is very difficult to know which one you should prioritize over the others.

Here are some of the best lightsaber crystals for every situation.
