All perks in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has a wide variety of skills to learn alongside its five unique lightsaber stances, ensuring you have no shortage of ways to customize your playstyle. The addition of perks bumps up those options even further, granting you the ability to equip badges that improve certain aspects of protagonist Cal Kestis’ kit, such as increasing XP earned or improving his ability to break the guard of his foes. Some are found by exploring, while others are purchased from a particular vendor and unlocked fairly early in the game. A handful of perks are unlocked only after beating the game and starting New Game Plus.

Each of these perks uses a certain number of perk slots when equipped, so you’ll have to make some tough decisions about which ones you want to have active at any one time. Luckily, exploring the galaxy will net you some additional perk slots, so you’ll be able to equip more as you get further in your adventure. Even with all of the perk slots unlocked, however, you’ll still want to strongly consider which perks will benefit you best. We’ll make that a bit easier on you by listing all of the perks you can find in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, what boons they offer, and how many perk slots they’ll take up.

Perks discovered by exploring

These perks are found by thoroughly exploring the world and completing objectives. You may have to overcome some pretty tough challenges to find them all.

  • Ambidexterity (3 slots) – Increases lightsaber damage after shooting enemies with your Blaster.
  • Centered (2 slots) – Staggers nearby enemies when you’re healing and lets you take one hit without healing being interrupted.
  • Dexterity (2 slots) – Increases the damage dealt by lightsaber throws.
  • Fellowship (4 slots) – Grants BD-1 an extra Stim charge.
  • Fortification (3 slots) – Regenerates your HP up to a minimum amount.
  • Gambler (4 slots) – Increases earned XP, but removes your ability to restore lost skill points after dying.
  • Marksmanship (3 slots) – Increases the damage of your Blaster shots when you’re using Blaster stance.
  • Perplexity (2 slots) – Increases the damage dealt by confused enemies.
  • Persistence (2 slots) – Replenishes a small amount of HP when you kill an enemy under the Slow effect.
  • Precision (2 slots) – Reduces parry timing, but lets you deal more stamina damage on a successful parry.
  • Recuperation (3 slots) – Increases the minimum level to which your Force Meter can regenerate.
  • Resilience (1 slot) – Increases your block meter.
  • Shatter (2 slots) – Improves your ability to break the guard of enemies.
  • Unflinching (1 slot) – Allows you to absorb a single hit without interrupting your Blaster charge.

Perks purchased from Zee

These perks must be purchased from Zee using datadiscs that you find throughout your adventure. This old-school droid will become a vendor after you complete the Forest Array mission relatively early in the game. Zee is posted up on the second floor of Pyloon’s Saloon.

  • Elixir (2 slots) – Grants some super meter upon use of a Stim.
  • Equilibrium (3 slots) – Increases the damage of your next lightsaber attack after using a Force power.
  • Flux (1 slot) – Regenerates Force over time at the cost of an overall reduced maximum Force.
  • Steadfast (1 slot) – Allows you to absorb a single hit without interrupting your sprint.
  • Versatility (3 slots) – Increases damage dealt briefly after switching lightsaber stances.
  • Wisdom (3 slots) – Increases XP earned from defeating enemies.

Perks awarded in New Game Plus

These perks are granted to you upon beginning your New Game Plus run and provide some unique challenges to your gameplay experience. They don’t take up any of your perk slots, meaning you can equip all of them (if you want to) without having to unequip any of your other favorites.

  • Purity – Increases all damage done and received by Cal.
  • Trendsetter – Randomizes your cosmetics upon death.
  • Warrior – Adds stronger enemies to the game.

Cross-platform support is becoming more important in the world of video games. Multiplayer hits like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 and Fortnite have pushed crossplay into the limelight, and now most AAA multiplayer games release with at least partial cross-platform support. Finding every cross-platform game is no easy feat, though, so we did the hard work to bring you a comprehensive list of games that support crossplay.

Unfortunately, there aren't any rules when it comes to crossplay, so each game handles the feature a little differently. To make matters more confusing, certain backward-compatible games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X still support crossplay on the most recent hardware, even if there isn't an official release for that hardware.

Jedi Cal Kestis.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is among the most critically acclaimed games set in a galaxy far, far away. Players followed Cal Kestis, played by Cameron Monaghan, in his journey to kick-start the Jedi Order after Emperor Palpatine famously ordered them all slaughtered. His journey of self-discovery was one many gamers could relate to and are excited to continue in the sequel Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.

Developers at EA, Respawn, and Lucasfilm Games have only given fans a taste of what Survivor has in store for them with two trailers, but they are promising an epic new Star Wars story.  The dark, mysterious, and menacing tones were what director Stig Asmussen hoped to convey, foreshadowing the Fallen Order sequel. Here's everything we know about Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
