The latest Star Wars game, Jedi: Survivor, has a range of skills available to unlock throughout your journey. To help players, we’ve compiled a list of the best abilities to get in this action-packed adventure.
Best Survival Skills
In the Survival category, focus on the Resilience skill tree. The options therein are primarily for healing, blocking, and parrying. Consider the following:
Survival Skills (including Improved and Expert)
This chain increases Cal’s maximum HP, providing a helpful boost to your health. Plus, players can gain additional health from Health Essences found in the game.
Improved/Perfected Stim Formula
Passives that provide more healing for each Stimpack used are very useful, especially since you can only carry a few at a time. Learn more about Stimpack locations in our guide.
The healing animation during the game can make all the difference. Speeding up this animation via the Teamwork ability will allow you to restore your HP faster.
Best Force Skills
There are three Force trees, so consider investing in the following skills:
Jedi Concentration: Attunement (including Lucid and Enlightened)
Extra Force is invaluable during the early- to mid-game stages, allowing you to use your powers more often.
Jedi Concentration: Channeled Energy
This skill boosts Force regeneration, which is useful in battle.
Jedi Concentration: Greater/Extended/Superior Hold
This tree contains abilities that will become more useful as you progress, particularly when you acquire more points.
Telekinesis: Wrenching Pull
Wrenching Pull is a prerequisite skill, so it’s worth investing in to improve your telekinetic abilities.
Telekinesis: Radial/Howling Push
These upgrades boost your Force Push ability considerably, making it easier to blast hostiles off cliffs and ledges.
Confusion: All except Amplification and Redirected Strength
The Confusion tree has some of the best skills in the game, particularly for controlling humanoid enemies and beasts. Mind controlling multiple troops and creatures can help when facing larger squads of foes.
Best Lightsaber Skills
There are five Lightsaber skill trees, but these generally boil down to personal preference. Here are a few suggestions:
Double-Bladed: Endless Hurricane
This ability adds extra attacks to a chain and is good when facing hordes of enemies.
Dual-Wield: Backstep Slash
Backstep Slash is a basic but effective skill for the Dual-Wield stance, offering both an offensive and defensive move.
Blaster: Quick Draw
This ability allows you to pinpoint and fire at multiple targets, similar to Cassidy’s High Noon from Overwatch. However, the Blaster stance can feel a bit clunky at times.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is an open-world game with numerous facets and secrets to discover. You can learn more about the game and its abilities in our guides hub. Remember that there is no level cap in the game, so keep playing to gain the XP you need to master all the available skills.
