Overall, the gameplay of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is pretty linear, and you can complete the main quests of the game within 19 hours or so, but if you are someone who likes to explore around, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has a lot to offer. In this comprehensive guide, we will share some valuable tips & tricks which you can use while playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
7 Useful Tips & Tricks to know when playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is an exciting and challenging game, and if you want to get the most out of it, you need to know these seven tips & tricks. Let’s have a look at them.
1. Explore & Explore
One of the best things about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is that it comes with tons of content for explorers, and if you want to get the most out of this game, we recommend that you explore the worlds.
These worlds come with various rewards, such as crates you can open to get items such as hairstyles, jackets, abilities, and stats, making your whole gaming experience more fun. So, along with the main quests, we recommend that you explore worlds, and you will be rewarded with cool items and stats.
2. Find your lightsaber Stance!
In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Cal Kestis comes with five different lightsaber stances, determining how he approaches the enemies during combat.
So, when you start playing the game, we recommend you explore all of these stances and find the one that suits your playing style. Then, once you find your favorite lightsaber stance, stick with it, and start using it in combat so that you can level up.
When it comes to lightsaber stances, all 5 of them have their benefits, but if you ask us, we love the dual-wield stance because it’s more aggressive and it allows Cal to use both lightsabers at once.
On top of that, it’s also faster than a single-bladed stance, but at the same time, it causes less damage and also compromises your defense. So, if you prefer an offensive approach, you will love this stance.
3. Prioritize the Progression in skill trees
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has three skill trees: Survival, Lightsaber, and Force. When it comes to their Progression, the big mistake many beginners make here is that they focus on all of them simultaneously, which can make Cal less effective.
So, we recommend that you focus on survival trees initially and ensure you improve the health meter. Improving the health meter will allow Cal to survive enemies’ attacks in the game and improve his overall chances of survival.
Once you are done improving Cal’s survival skills, focus on the lightsaber stance and upgrade your abilities to improve Cal’s combat skills. After improving combat, you can start Progression in the Force skill tree.
4. Target Ranged Enemies First
You get various powerful enemies in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. In the game, these enemies will attack you in groups, and each group has different types of enemies, including Purge troops and B1 battle droids.
So, in combat, you should target ranged enemies first because if you engage the melee enemies first, ranged enemies can target you and cause a lot of damage. So, when you are attacked, focus on ranged enemies first, and then you can go on to deal with melee enemies.
5. BD-1 is your Friend!
In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you will be accompanied by droid BD-1, and it’s your friend and will start making noises when it detects hidden secrets around you.
So, pay attention when he jumps off your shoulder and starts exploring. I recommend following BD-1 because he often leads you to collectible items. Also, he can help you discover secret pathways that are not visible otherwise.
6. Practice & Practice
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a pretty challenging game, and if you are a beginner, you might not enjoy it at the start because enemies can kill you quickly. However, don’t lose hope and keep practicing because it will improve your skills.
In the game, there are many skills that you can learn to improve your combat, and parrying is one of them. Parrying is an essential part of the combat in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. So to get better results, you should learn and master parrying.
Similarly, you will also need to learn when to attack and when you should retreat. In the game, tons of powerful enemies are available, and you can’t beat all of them in the beginning.
So, if you encounter an enemy who is too powerful, simply use the super ability of the Cal, which will slow everything down around him and give you time to retreat. Similarly, you need to learn the weakness of your enemies in the game and use them strategically to beat them.
You can also use the training mode in the game to refine your skills and better understand different stances and other abilities.
7. Backtrack & Enjoy
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a pretty comprehensive game, and you will occasionally run into situations you might not be able to overcome.
Although BD-1 will help you unlock tools and avoid these situations, if you ever encounter a situation you cannot overcome, just backtrack. Explore places where you can find bosses and other quests to help you level up.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is an exciting and challenging game, and if you follow our tips and tricks, you can get the most out of it. Like any other game, this game also has a learning curve, and you will need to understand important aspects such as lightsaber stances, patterns of enemies, and overall gameplay to enjoy the game. We hope that you found our guide useful and that it helped you get a better understanding of the game. May the Force be with you!
