Deals <<1>> kinetic damage and knocks back up to 8 enemies within a 15-meter cone in front of you. Standard and weak enemies are additionally knocked down for 3 seconds.

Force Wave is a Jedi Consular ability, trainable at level 3 and is the first area attack available. It knocks back enemies in a 60 degree cone in front of you, plus any enemies who are overlapping with you, dealing a token damage. Un-stared enemies would also lie on the ground for 3 seconds, unable to act.

Because of its very low damage, it is most commonly used for its crowd-control effects, such as to push enemies off ledges and cliffs. It can also push outlying enemies back to concentrate them for other area attacks, and to interrupt the target(s).

Enemies with Boss Immunity are immune to the knockback effect.
