Cal Kestis can use his lightsaber in different ways, and in this guide, we will tell you about all stances in Star Wars Jedi Survivor. Some of these fighting styles are available in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, while others are brand new.
The stances that Cal uses in Star Wars Jedi Survivor reflect his development as a warrior and grant you new abilities. There is even a fighting style that allows you to use a blaster, so we will tell you about it too.
All stances in Star Wars Jedi Survivor
There are five different stances in Star Wars Jedi Survivor, and you will be able to unlock them during your playthrough. Also, each of them can be upgraded with various perks. So, let’s move on to these combat styles!
Single Blade stance in Star Wars Jedi Survivor
The Single Blade Stance in Star Wars Jedi Survivor is described as a versatile fighting style that works great both offensively and defensively. With its help, you will be able to perform different swings, thrusts, and other moves. However, you may find other stances more effective in certain situations.
Double Blade stance in Star Wars Jedi Survivor
This stance may remind you of the famous Sith named Darth Maul. It allows you to perform wide spinning moves that can keep a huge number of enemies at a distance. Even though its primary attacks are relatively slow, the stance works great when you have to deal with hordes of sloppy enemies that surround you.
Dual Blade stance in Star Wars Jedi Survivor
The Dual Blade Stance was partially available in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, but only as a move rather than a full-fledged stance. In the new game, you will be able to use it as a standalone stance. Wielding two lightsabers allows you to deal massive damage, dodge, and cancel your moves.
Judging by this description, it should work fine in two situations. The first one is when you have to fight a huge opponent whose attacks cannot be interrupted. So, you will have to cancel your moves when you see that your enemy is about to strike you.
The second scenario is when you are facing a group of strong and fast opponents. The main features of the Dual Blade Stance will help you avoid damage and deal with your enemies one by one.
Cross Guard stance in Star Wars Jedi Survivor
The Cross Guard Stance turns your lightsaber into something like Kylo Ren’s sword. It looks like a two-handed blade that you can use to perform powerful strikes that move your character forward. This style is described as a stance from fighting games, that requires you to “feel” the distance between you and your opponent.
Considering the fact that it has the highest damage, we can make an assumption that it works great against bosses. The Cross Guard Stance moves are focused on a single target and allow you to hit your enemy from a decent range.
Blaster stance in Star Wars Jedi Survivor
As for the Blaster Stance, the developers prefer not to talk much about it. So, we don’t know how exactly it works and what kind of moves you can perform with your blaster. However, the game won’t become a shooter, and you will still have to fight in melee.
