VIDEO: Why The Mandalorian's Beskar Steel Is A Game Changer

Star Wars: The Mandalorian has introduced fans to a lot of deep lore related to the title character and his people. One of those pieces of lore surrounds Beskar Steel, which the Mandalorian trades for an upgraded shoulder pauldron. However, there are still a lot of questions surrounding Beskar Steel, including why it's just so darn important. In a new exclusive video, we're looking at why Beskar Steel could just end up being a game changer in a world without the Empire.

Mandalorians are known for their prowess as warriors, with many bounty hunters coming from the group. In the first episode, the Mandalorian doesn't want to take Imperial credits due to the collapse of the Empire, leading to him being offered a mysterious and difficult job of which he's suspicious. However, once Beskar Steel enters into the equation, he changes his mind.

Beskar Steel itself is what most sets of Mandalorian armor is made out of. This ended up playing a role in the animated series, as Sabine Wren created a device to heat up Beskar Steel to deadly temperatures. This device, although destroyed, was capable of doing a lot of damage. However, the material is still incredibly strong and could mean a lot going forward.
