What are fighting stances in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s fighting stances determine the types of attacks that Cal will dish out to his enemies. The game will come with five different lightsaber stances, but you can only equip two of them at a single time.
You’ll start with single-blade, double-blade, and dual-wield, which were present in the first game. Single-blade is the traditional Jedi stance, while double-blade extends your weapon with a second lightsaber beam, just like Darth Maul in Episode One.
Then, dual-weild lets you quickly split the lightsaber in two and attack with both hands. In an interview with IGN, the devs also confirmed there will be two new fighting stances that you can unlock known as Blaster and Heavy.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Heavy stance explained
The Heavy stance, also known as the Crossguard stance, primarily focuses on dishing out as much damage as possible. It utilizes a hilted lightsaber that you swing all the way to deal large amounts of pain to enemies.
However, the Crossguard stance is extremely slow with very little range. There’s a high risk of you getting hit by enemies before you’re able to complete swinging your lightsaber. For this reason, you’ll need to be careful about when you use it.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Blaster stance explained
The second new stance coming to Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the Blaster stance, and it will be a mix of using your lightsaber and blaster when battling opponents. So, you’ll use the blaster to take out enemies from afar and then switch to the saber to eliminate enemies up close.
It was initially planned to have these different stances included in Jedi: Fallen Order but the developers explained that they were unable to implement them in time. Now, Star Wars fans can try them out in Jedi: Survivor.
