Tatooine Datacron Locations

There are 5 Datacrons on Tatooine. Each of them requires a little work to get to. 

Datacron 1 - Republic Only

(Cunning +3)

Codex Entry - Galactic History 39: The Third Great Schism

The first Datacron is located in Anchorhead. You have to go to the northwest edge of town where a sand dune is almost to the top of the wall. Then go along the buildings along the north of town get to it. It is located above the Underworld Trading trainer.

Datacron 2 - Republic and Empire

(Willpower +3)

Codex Entry - Galactic History 42: The Nevoota Extinction

The second Datacron is located in the desert. It sits at the opening of a cave. To get to it you need to go farther down from it and jump off the edge of the cliff. On the edge of the cliff, when you look down, you will see a ledge. Jump down onto it, and you'll be able to enter the cave. From there you will need to fight through a few Sandpeople to get to the other end.

Datacron 3 - Republic and Empire

(Aim +3)

Codex Entry - Galactic History 38: The Tyrant of Onderon

The third Datacron is located on a cliff in the Dune Sea. It is accessible from above. You must go to the Jundland Transport Ship Crash Site. Go to the western edge where there is a part of a broken ship. Look down and you will see the Datacron. Carefully jump down going from one ledge to another.

Coordinates: -628, -30


Datacron 4 & 5 - Republic and Empire

(Blue Matrix Shard) (Strenght +3)

Codex Entry - Galactic History 40: Czerka Discovers Kashyyyk
Codex Entry - Galactic History 41: The Droid Rights Movement

The fourth and fifth Datacron are located near each other on top of a Sandcrawler. You will need to ride a balloon, and jump off onto the rear roof of a Sandcrawler to reach them. To get on the balloon, go to the southwest corner of the Dune Sea. There you will see a Jawa Sandcrawler sticking up out of the desert. Get on top of it, and wait for the balloon. The balloon takes about 40 minutes to make a complete cycle. If you are lucky enough to get a Jedi friend on the balloon and you miss it, he can force-pull you onto the balloon from the top of a hill just before it gets to the jump off point. Also, if a Jedi makes it on top of the Sandcrawler after jumping off the balloon, he can force-pull people onto its roof. 

After you get the Datacron on the roof, you will need to drop straight down onto a small platform on the side of the Sandcrawler to get the second Datacron. 

If you don't make the jump onto the ballon, or you miss the jump onto the Sandcrawler roof, or you fall off, it is a long wait to try again.

Datacron 6 - Empire Only

(Cunning +3)

Codex Entry - Galactic History 39: The Third Great Schism

This Datacron is located on top of the bank in Mos Ila. Its very easy to get by using the rocks to the left of the bank. Thanks to Matt for sharing this in the comments below. First go down the street to the left from the bank, and go up the small hill. Where the rocks meet the wall at 711, 3262 is where you start. Jump onto the wall ledge. To your left you will see a gap between the wall and the rocks. Jump thru this gap. Once you jump through this gap, and land on the other side, you will be standing in an area between the wall and the rocks. Get on the wall ledge, and follow it to the rock ledge at the end. Follow the rock ledge around, and at 715, 3218 you will need to jump over a gap to the next rock ledge. Once you've made this jump, go a little ways down the ledge. You will see the orange canvas below you that is right beside the bank. Jump down onto this orange canvas, and go to the other side of it. Then jump down onto the bank's roof, and get the Datacron.
