Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a third-person action-adventure video game with a single-player story that is set in the Star Wars universe. You take control of Cal Kestis, a Padawan who survived the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith as he attempts to escape from the Empire, including the Second Sister, one of the deadliest members of the Imperial Inquisition. Throughout his journey, young Cal will visit both new worlds and iconic ones from Star Wars lore such as Kashyyyk, with the assistance of the Rebel extremist Saw Gerrera and his mentor Cere Junda. Check out our Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Walkthrough and Guide to find out how you can help Cal escape his pursuers .
Unlock the Double Lightsaber
Get the double lightsaber as soon as possible by opting to go Dathomir after your first visit to Bogano. Aside from the double lightsaber you will also be able to get plenty of useful upgrades by going to this planet instead of Zeffo. To get the double lightsaber you need to follow the main path through the level which will lead you to a hooded figure.
Make sure you use the two different lightsaber types accordingly. You begin Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order with a single saber and later on you will unlock the double-ended blade and using the correct sabre can make a huge difference in how effective you are in combat. Use the single saber when you are faced with a handful of foes as the single saber will do more damage when it connects with an enemy and use the double-ended blade when you are fighting amongst a horde of enemies as it allows you to deflect multiple blaster bolts back unlike the single blade which you can only deflect one back before blocking.
Block and Parry Enemy Attacks
Resist the temptation to simply mash the Square/B button on your controller when you begin attacking enemies in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order as doing so will only leave you open to thier counter attacks. Try to instead block and parry attacks as much as possible, blocking attacks will ensure that you don't take too much damage and parrying an attack will create an opportunity to take off a large chunk of damage and possibly a one hit kill.
Use Cal's Force Powers
The Force powers Cal uses are tied to a meter which replenishes quickly if you get a few direct hits so make sure you keep using Slow, Push, and Pull in combat as much as possible as they can easily turn the tide of a fight.
Increase your Survival and Force Powers
In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order the Skill tree is divided into three branches; Lightsaber, Force, and Survival. Lightsaber attacks all require your Force meter to use so in the early game it is more beneficial if you focus on increasing Force and Survival to help you survive early encounters.
Unblockable Enemy Attacks
Whenever you face an enemy that begins to glow red it is to indicate that they are about to unleach a massive, unblockable attack. With some of these enemies if you can land a few blows before they can wind-up the attack you will be able to cancel it, others you can interrupt their animation by using force powers to land a few strikes on them. If the enemy has already started to glow you will have no alternative but to dodge away from the attack.
BD-1 is a useful droid that accompanies Cal that was designed to assist with exploration in remote and dangerous locations. Whenever this droid climbs off Cal's shoulder and heads somewhere you need to make sure you follow it as it almost always means there is an interactive element nearby, such as something to scan for a Databank entry, or something to slice (once you have access to the Scomp Link).
Requesting Health Stims from BD-1
If you just press up on the D-Pad when asking BD-1 for a health stim you will leave Cal open to an enemy attack. If instead you hold down the block button and then request a stim Cal will automatically block any incoming attacks. If the blocks interrupt the healing you will have to ask for the health stim again.
Save at Meditation Spots
Meditation spots in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order are the game's save points and checkpoints and they allow you the opportunity to rest and acquire upgrades from the skill tree. It is important as you progress through the game that you make sure that whenever you see one you make sure you stop off at it because you will respawn at the last one you visited if you die during gameplay.
Regain Lost XP
When you die in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order you will respawn at the last Save Point you meditated at and you will lose all the XP you gained since your last Skill Point. However, if you return to where you were killed you can immediately regain your lost XP by damaging the enemy that initally killed you with a single successful hit. Your killer will be highlighted ba a yellow tint to indicate they are the enemy you must damage.
Search for Sense Echoes
Sense Echoes in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order serve as useful lore items that give Cal the history of a location and provide additional context about a place or the inhabitants by revealinng a glimpse of the past to him. Sense Echoes are worthwhile searching for as they will give a decent amount of XP when you find them, some even giving you a health or force boost if you collect 3 of them.
Search for Hidden Passages
The areas you cannot explore in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order are highlighted on BD-1's holomap as a red hologram and to unlock them will usually mean having to unlock a new skill. However, it's always worth exploring the area as you may find a hidden passage nearby that can open them up.
As you progress through Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order you will unlock new abilities for Cal and BD-1. Make sure that whenever you do so you return to planets you have already visited as you will now be able to discover more in these areas. This means you will be able to earn more XP to help you get even more powers from the Skill tree.
