Now that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has arrived on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series, many of you are sure to start your adventure in this sequel set in a galaxy far, far away. Although we have already published our review of the game where we discuss our experience from a critical point of view (which we also advise you to take a look), some of you may be looking for some tips to help you start and survive in this challenging title. That being the case, we’ve rounded up eight tips we wish we’d known before starting Survivor.

Don’t get too involved in the fight

Survivor lets you play with different lightsaber stances that allow Cal to attack in unique ways. Dual Blade is faster but weaker, Cross Guard is powerful but slower, Blaster adds ranged abilities, and more. You’ll see tons of these options and you’ll want to use them all, but in practice it’s best to learn a few positions and master them thoroughly.

We suggest balancing a general combat stance, like Cross Guard or Solo, and then combining it with a more specific style, like Blaater (very useful if jetpack-wielding Stormtroopers are giving you trouble), or Double-bladed Lightsaber , Silo What worries you is being overwhelmed by the number of enemies.


Remember that the Jedi do not master all the ways of the Force. Some are better sword fighters, while others are more adept with the Force. Don’t push yourself to be master of everything, become master of one thing, two at the most.

Choose the path that’s right for you…and stick to it

And continuing from the previous point, there are a ton of skill trees in Survivor and a lot more individual abilities to unlock, so much so that you’ll probably never fully upgrade Cal. So figure out which positions are right for you, figure out your, and specialize Cal to improve in those areas.


If you don’t use Confusion Force often, don’t bother upgrading it. Likewise, if you’re a fan of dragging and pushing Stormtroopers and Battle Droids, it might be a good idea to improve your available Force and how easily you can regenerate it.

Focus on the story first, and then we’ll see

It might sound weird, but save the exploration for when you beat the main story. Still, you’ll come across quite a few secrets along this main path, allowing you to upgrade Cal significantly, to the point where the bosses and enemies you’ll face later won’t be too boring.

The reason we suggest finishing the story before exploring is that Survivor uses a level design style that resembles a metroidvania. You’ll come across countless areas and sections that are impossible to open or pass through, and it’s only until you find a new item or ability later in the main plot that those areas become, finally, inaccessible. .. accessible. So leave the exploration for now, finish the campaign, then get back to mapping and helping the natives of the galaxy with their little odysseys.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

There’s nothing dishonorable about running away

If you decide to skip our last point and want to venture off the beaten path, it’s wise to know when to run away from a problem. You’ll often come across an opponent that will knock you out in one or two hits, and while in theory you can always take out any enemy in Survivor, since the game doesn’t have leveled enemies, it’s best to leave them on. owning them as you train, you learn new moves and abilities, gain more stims, and improve your combat skills.

After all, that enemy will still be there when you decide to return.

Death markers can be useful

When you are defeated in Survivor, the game will place a death marker on the enemy that defeated you or where you died. It appears as a bright golden glow, and when you step into it or damage a marked enemy, it will refill your current health and strength points, as well as regain any lost experience to gain a new skill point.

You’ll see it often during a fight and want to grab it instantly, just in case you miss it again and lose it for good, but we’re here to tell you that it can basically serve as extra healing when you need it. When the going gets tough, save your BD-1 stash and walk or damage the marked enemy instead, and bam, the tables in a fight can change drastically.

The Strategy Guide: your best friend

Players don’t pay enough attention to the databases and story entries that developers use to bolster their titles. But we should. Especially in the case of Survivor. Not only does this guide contain Star Wars information that will satisfy any sci-fi fan’s appetite, but it’s also a great source of information if you find yourself stuck or fighting a boss or some type of specific enemy.

In the strategy guide, you’ll find genuine advice on the mechanics and tricks used by the enemies, allowing you to get ahead of them and beat them at their own game. Cheat codes attached to games may be a thing of the past, but these in-game databases and guides are often great substitutes.

Collectibles will make Cal stronger

In many games, collectibles are there purely to fill time and give the player something else to do beyond the core gameplay, although they often share a little more narrative and history as the game progresses. road. This is only partially true in Survivor, as here you can use certain collectibles as currency to spend at vendors across the galaxy.

These vendors will not only open up new customization options for Cal’s appearance, BD-1 aesthetics, and Cal’s lightsaber colors and parts, but will also allow you to purchase stims, additional skill slots And much more. . Just bring priority shards, data discs, Jedha scrolls, etc. to the right vendors and you can significantly improve Cal without having to face some of the toughest bosses in the world.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

play your way

Survivor will always give you advice on how best to approach certain situations, and while they will help you to some degree, we know everyone wants to be their own kind of Jedi, so let yourself go.

If you want to fight only in the Blaster stance because it makes you feel like some sort of symbiosis between Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, go for it. Likewise, if you constantly want to change your posture every time you reach a meditation point, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

This is a game about being a Jedi, and while there are morals and codes to living this life, it’s not the same as being under the yoke of the Jedi. ‘Empire, where rules and regulations dictate all aspects of life.

We hope these tips and tricks not only help you become a Jedi Master, but also help you better understand and appreciate the planets and galaxy that Respawn Entertainment has prepared in this Star Wars sequel.

May the Force be with you, now and always.
