Players will find that they will face off against a plethora of formidable bosses throughout their adventure in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. One of these bosses is a man known as Taron Malicos. Fortunately, we have some background information on Taron Malicos and some tips for how to defeat this particular boss character covered for you.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Taron Malicos
You will encounter this boss on the planet of Dathomir. This individual is a former Jedi who escaped Order 66 and made his way to Dathomir. However, Taron Malicos eventually succumbed to the Dark Side to have the power to conquer the Nightbrothers and take on the role of their leader.
Unfortunately, this leads to Taron Malicos becoming an enemy of our protagonist, Cal Kestis.

During this Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order boss fight, Taron Malicos will wield two red lightsabers. He will utilize these two lightsabers to deliver combos that contain plenty of attacks in them. Cal will be able to block these attacks during the start of the boss fight. However, your best bet will be to make sure you dodge them later on in the fight when they become much stronger. The length of his combos will increase when you can dwindle his health down the halfway mark.
Taron Malicos will also try to gain the upper hand by using the Force. His primary way of using the Force is throwing large rocks at Cal. You will be able to use your Force abilities to throw them back at him to deal massive amounts of damage.
Players will be best served by having patience and making sure they strike when the right opportunity presents itself. This specific boss fight will no doubt make you pay if you are too reckless with your attacks.
