in jedi outcast II if you get above your hands in water or swamp goo etc etc your lightsaber deactivates.... is it just in that game? or is there any other times in the moives, books, games, etc etc that a lightsaber doesnt work underwater?

thanx in advance

In Episode 1, in a cut scene, Obi-wan tried to use his saber in the Naboo swamps and it got fried. So the answer is no, they can't be used underwater, or if water gets inside. So when the saber is turned on in the rain before water has seeped into the blade emitter, it should work fine.

I think it depends on the saber. If you watched Clone Wars (the cartoon) season 1 - in episode 5 it's pretty obvious that Kit's works underwater...


In general, a Lightsaber can function underwater if it's built water-tight... but in the case of that game or the cut scene, the sabers in question were not built with the possibility of water interfering in mind. The emitter isn't the part that shorts out, it's the power cells or the switch circuitry that's the problem. Hence getting it on your hands will foul the switch, and it will probably just short out on you, if not zap you unconscious for a while.

yeah, that makes since. Kit's sabre probably would be waterproof and work underwater.

Yeah. I think since humans don't generally fight underwater, there's no need for their sabers to be waterproof.
