Looking for the best Star Wars Jedi Survivor perks? Perks offer a wide variety of passive effects for your abilities, including your block, parry, and damage capabilities. You begin the next instalment of Cal’s journey with three perk slots, and can acquire more over time – but with limited room, you may find yourself with more perks than you know what to do with.

Not all Star Wars Jedi Survivor perks are created equal. You might prefer to opt for less powerful perks that grant you more overall utility in the action-adventure game, or you might want to prioritise a single perk. Equally, some may improve the efficacy of your Star Wars Jedi Survivor healing stim, while others may encourage you to  switch your lightsaber stances on the fly. Whatever your preference, here’s everything you need to know about perks in Star Wars Jedi Survivor.

The best Star Wars Jedi Survivor perks

The best perks in Star Wars Jedi Survivor can often depend on your chosen playstyle. That said, there are some perks that can absolutely be of service to you as you explore the galaxy.

If you’re looking to get ahead on your skills, we recommend equipping Wisdom as early as possible. While it requires three perk slots to equip, the bonus experience nets you Star Wars Jedi Survivor skill points in record time, which is a great benefit during the early hours.

It’s easy to become overwhelmed by enemies, but Centered offers a moment of breathing room by applying an area-of-effect stagger to enemies. Simply pop a healing stim you’re in dire straits and go on the immediate offensive to turn the tide of battle. This perk also has the benefit of taking up two slots, leaving at least one remaining slot free for additional buffs.

As far as one-on-one combat is concerned, Shatter is the go-to perk for tearing through an enemy’s guard in record time, especially when paired with the Star Wars Jedi Survivor crossguard lightsaber. Finally, Versatility applies a temporary damage buff after switching stances, which is guaranteed to appeal if you prefer to dip into the full scope of Cal’s lightsaber moveset.
