|Precision Release||2 Skill Points||You can perform a follow-up attack that staggers enemies by releasing Triangle/Y.|
|Split Reflection||2 Skill Points||You can press L1/LB right before a blaster shot is about to hit you to split it in half and reflect both the projectiles back at the attacker.|

Best Dual Wield Skills
