As Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has a lot of new moves and skills to choose from, its new perk system is, to say the least, interesting.
In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Respawn Entertainment fixed all the problems with the first game in the series by adding new features. This meant that new systems had to be added. Developers have given players more options for stances, and the new perk adds to that by giving different boosts to different powers.
Even though it might not be as useful or important as the skills of each stance, it still adds to the gameplay experience. This is especially true because Jedi: Survivor has a lot of tough spots where players need to change their play styles and focus on different things. In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, these are some of the best perks that players should try to get.
‘Fortification’ is a must-have perk because there are many times when players are surrounded by foes, especially those with blasters. This will help players slowly get their health back up to a minimum level, which can save their lives at the end of a fight when they have very little health, no healing stims left, and are far away from any meditation points.
Even though it only restores a small amount of strength, it is at least something that can help players who are on their last legs in battle. This perk is one of the best, especially if players choose a less defensive and more attacking stance.
Just like in many well-known games like Souls, and especially in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, players’ block metres are a big part of how fighting works, and letting them run out could mean the difference between life and death. With the “Resilience” perk, this block metre goes up, making it easier for players who don’t like timed parries to protect themselves from incoming attacks while using only one perk spot.
With this perk, some of Cal’s smaller and less dangerous enemies will be much less of a problem. Their weapons don’t do much damage to begin with, so this will make it even less of a problem for most of the fights.
Speaking of blocks and parries and the game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the ‘Precision’ perk in Jedi: Survivor is the only one that reminds me of the game’s fighting in terms of how well timed parries work. In Sekiro, breaking an enemy’s posture by parrying or attacking was a crucial part of every fight, as it was the only way to deal the killing blow or at least take out a big piece of their health.
The same is true in Jedi: Survivor, but the ‘Precision’ perk improves the damage done to an enemy’s block metre, mostly through parrying. Even though the parry time is much shorter than usual, it is still worth it, especially for those who are good with timing and can fight the toughest and fastest enemies in Flappy Bird game head-on.
In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, one of the best ways to win a fight is to use the ‘Confusion’ Force skill, which can be upgraded to ‘Greater Confusion’, to make your enemies fight each other. This is useful and important when players need a break from all the fighting, but based on the type of enemy, it can sometimes do very little damage.
With the “Perplexity” perk, the amount of damage is increased. This gives players an advantage when controlled enemies come back to their senses, letting them kill other damaged enemies more quickly and effectively. When this is combined with all the skills linked to Cal Kestis’ mind trick, it is not only funny to watch enemies hurt each other, but it also lets off some steam for a while.
This could be the best perk to use in Jedi: When used with the ‘Precision’ perk, Survivor gives you the ‘Shatter’ perk. At the same time that timed parries do more damage to an enemy’s block metre, you can knock them off balance much more quickly when you hit. Most of the time, enemies can block Cal’s attacks, or it can feel like some attacks are totally ignored.
With this perk, players can be sure that they will be able to deal with a large group of enemies faster than usual. This is especially helpful against foes that are like tanks and take a lot of hits before going down. Even though parry windows and timing also affect how much damage is done, it’s nice to know that this is a choice that can be used or switched out for others at any meditation point during the journey. To get this perk, players will have to kill the very dangerous and deadly Rancour in Koboh, but it will be well worth it.
You can now play Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
