The Sims 4 Star Wars Journey to Batuu: Scoundrel Rank Overview

In The Sims 4 Star Wars: Journey to Batuu, your Sim will find themselves caught in the middle of three factions at odds with each other in Batuu; The First Order, Resistance, and Scoundrels. Each faction controls a different sector of the city and who you support is entirely up to you. Each faction has five ranks your Sim can progress through by completing missions for them. Each rank brings new rewards and unlockables, but beware; becoming friendly with one faction could make other factions hostile towards you.

This overview covers the Scoundrel ranks. Talk to Hondo Ohnaka in Black Spire Outpost to receive Scoundrel missions and begin rising in their ranks. He can often be found in Oga’s Cantina. It’s the only building in this district you can physically enter (ie: not a rabbithole).

Gaining ranks with the Scoundrels will not affect your status with any other factions. The Scoundrels like whoever they can make a profit off of. Due to the Scoundrels’ neutral stance on the First Order vs. Resistance conflict, your Sim can be part of the First Order or the Resistance and still work with the Scoundrels.

Rank 1: Rookie


  • Galactic Credits
  • Swindle interaction

New Purchasable Items from Honda Ohnaka:

  • Dataspike

Other Notes:

  • Dataspikes can be used to slice into control panels. They are a one-time use and can get costly to purchase, so save all the ones you get as rewards for when you need them. You will be slicing into control panels frequently on missions. Alternatively, you can use a droid to slice into control panels if you have one.

New Purchasable Items from Hondo Ohnaka:

Other Notes: 

  • The Scoundrel Banner won’t be usable on Batuu. When you travel back home, they will be in your Sim’s inventory and you can drag them onto the walls to display them.
  • The Thermal Detonator can be used on spacecraft explorations in Batuu. It can also be displayed as decor when you return home.

Scoundrel Uniform – Unlocked at Rank 2 of the Scoundrels

  • Enthuse About Galactic Credit Skimmers interaction

New Purchasable Items from Holotable:

  • Fake ID Card

Other Notes:

  • Having both the Purple Kyber Crystal and the Lightsaber Hilt will allow you to combine them and create the Mighty Elemental Nature Lightsaber, which you can use to duel with other Sims on Batuu.
  • The Fake ID Card can be used on spacecraft explorations in Batuu. You may also be able to avoid arrest when a First Order member checks your ID if you have a Fake ID Card in your inventory, but confirmation is needed about this.

Scoundrel Outfit – Unlocked at Rank 4 of the Scoundrels

Rank 5: Outlaw


  • Galactic Credits
  • White Kyber Crystal
  • Millennium Falcon Replica
  • Millennium Falcon Explore interaction

New Purchasable Items from Hondo Ohnaka:

  • None

Other Notes:

  • The White Kyber Crystal can be swapped with the Purple Kyber Crystal in your Lightsaber Hilt. There doesn’t appear to be any noticeable difference between the two lightsabers. The type of hilt appears to matter more than the type of crystal used to power it; however, I am still gathering info on this and will update this guide if I make any new discoveries about this.
  • The Millennium Falcon Replica is a decorative statue you can display in your Sim’s house when they return to their homeworld.
