Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the new game in the series and it is rather difficult. Bosses and enemies become more challenging as you progress the game but you can make things a lot easier if you know the right tricks. In this Star Wars Jedi: Survivor beginner’s guide, we go over some useful tips and tricks that will help you master the force.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Tips And Tricks

The following are some tips and tricks that you should keep in mind when playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor:

You Can Change The Difficulty

While the game does take a page or two out of the Souls games, you can change the difficulty setting to make things easier, or more challenging. To change the difficulty, you can head into the menu and head into the gameplay tab. You can change the difficulty at any point as long as you are not in the middle of combat.

Meditation Circles Are Check Points And Fast Travel Points

Meditation circles act as checkpoints and you can use them for fast traveling as well. Do note that if you do meditate to restore health and your force meter, the enemies that you killed will respawn and you will have to deal with them again. The meditation circles can also be used to change Lightsaber stances, equip perks and allocate skill points, etc.

Recover Your Lost XP

If you die, the XP that you have not used will be lost. You will need to head back to where you died or attack the enemy that killed you to get it back.

You Can Disable Fall Damage

In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you will be doing a lot of traversal which means, running, jumping, and grappling. Falling can lead to taking damage and since healing at meditation circles respawns enemies, you do not want to take any unwanted damage. Luckily, you can turn off fall damage. You can disable this setting in the exploration tab of the gameplay menu.

Choose The Right Lightsaber Stances

Lightsaber stances cater to different playstyles and add some flexibility to the game. You can only equip two at a time. The Double-Bladed stance is ideal for dealing with a large number of enemies while the Dual-Wielding stance allows you to attack faster. The Crossguard stance is a bit slower but allows you to deal more powerful attacks.

Unlock Shortcuts That You Find

As you explore the vast work, you will find shortcuts that you can use. Since you will be doing some backtracking down the line, these shortcuts are worth opening since they will make things easier for you when you come back for the second time. These shortcuts can be in the form of doors that can be opened or elevators and even zip lines. So keep your eyes open for them.

Dont Worry If You Cannot Access An Area

As you progress the game you might come to areas that you cannot access. Do not worry about them too much since you might not have the right ability to access them. There are some locations that you can only access with the right mount. You will be able to explore them later.

Talk To NPCs

There are plenty of side quests in the game but you might not know how to get them. Talking to the NPCs that you come across can be very important since they can give you lore and even side quests which can be pretty rewarding.


Since Kal does not have any weapon upgrades or armor upgrades, you might be wondering how to make him stronger. The answer is to explore. Look around areas in order to find HP and force upgrades. We recommend opening the Doma’s shop on Koboh with 10 Priorite Shards to get some extra health early on.

Get Confusion Early

Confusion is a great ability which you should get as soon as possible. One of the major challenges in the game is that you are put up against numerous enemies at the same time. You can use confusion to turn enemies against each other and even the odds. This is an ability that will be helpful throughout the game so you should definitely upgrade it when possible.

These are the tips and tricks that you should keep in mind when playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
