Star Wars Jedi: Survivor expands on its 2018 predecessor in nearly every way. One specific thing is the number of lightsaber stances Cal Kestis can use. In Fallen Order, you could only use the single-blade and the double-blade stances. However, in Jedi Survivor, there are a total of six stances. Here is where you can find every Lightsaber stance in Jedi Survivor.

Single-Bladed Lightsaber

The single-bladed lightsaber is Cal Kestis’ default stance, as it is unlocked automatically a few minutes into the tutorial on Coruscant. This stance is balanced between “power,” “speed,” “range” and “defense” and is ideal for one-on-one fights.

Double-Bladed Stance

The double-bladed stance, most well known as Darth Maul’s preferred style, is given a few minutes into Coruscant, the first explorable planet in Jedi Survivor. This stance is great for ground control, as the “focus attack” wipes out multiple enemies in succession by throwing Cal’s lightsaber in a wide arc in front of him.

Dual-Wield Stance

The dual-wield stance, popularized by Ahsoka Tano in the Clone Wars and Rebels animated shows, is acquired during a story beat after defeating the Ninth Sister on Coruscant. The dual-wield stance is the fastest in the game; however, it is also the weakest stance damage-wise.

Blaster Stance

The Blaster Stance is acquired after completing the “Travel to Cere’s Base” objective. Once you get back to the ship, Bode will give you a blaster, opening up the third stance in Jedi Survivor. This will allow you to use one lightsaber along with a blaster. This stance is more evasive than the other four stances, as it allows you to attack quickly with the saber and then fire from a distance.

Crossguard Stance

The Crossguard is the final stance you can unlock. After acquiring the Blaster Stance, you have a choice between either going back to Koboh or to the Shattered Moon. Completing the objectives on the latter area and defeating Drya Throne will net you the Crossguard Stance, used by Kylo Ren.

The Crossguard is a “high risk, high reward” stance, as it attacks slowly but deals a lot of damage. While it is a decent stance defensively, thanks to the large blade, it’s one pitfall is that its slow wind-up leaves you open for an attack. As such, it’s best to use this stance to break the guard against large creatures and droids, then follow it up with either the double-blade or duel-wield stances.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is out on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Steam.
