In Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Cal Kestis has acquired new Force abilities and lightsaber stances since his last adventure in Jedi: Fallen Order. Among these new stances, the Crossguard stance is a powerful and unique addition to Cal’s arsenal. Inspired by Kylo Ren’s iconic lightsaber, this stance allows Cal to unleash devastating heavy attacks. In this guide, we’ll walk you through how to unlock the Crossguard stance and use it effectively.
How to Unlock The Crossguard Stance in Jedi: Survivor
To unlock the Crossguard stance, you need to progress through the main story until you reach the Broken Moon, a satellite of Koboh, after completing the Archive on Jedha. Follow these steps:
- Choose to head to Broken Moon after finishing the main story on Jedha to obtain the Crossguard stance more quickly.
- Follow the main story path on Broken Moon until you reach the Superstructure Fabricators.
- In a circular room within the Superstructure Fabricators, you’ll encounter the miniboss Drya Thornne, a Bedlam Raider Lieutenant wielding a crossguard lightsaber.
- Defeat Drya Thornne, prompting a cutscene in which Cal takes Drya’s lightsaber and adapts the crossguard for his own weapon.
After completing these steps, you can access the powerful Crossguard stance, which you can switch in or out at any Meditation Point.
Mastering the Crossguard Stance
The Crossguard stance is the slowest but most damaging of all the lightsaber stances in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. It requires a solid grasp of timing to use effectively, as each hit has a significant wind-up animation that leaves you vulnerable. However, the Crossguard stance can deal massive damage in a single blow when used correctly.
To use the Crossguard stance effectively:
- Invest in the Crossguard skill tree to gain extra range, speed, and crowd control potential.
- Focus on powerful single targets, as the high damage output of the Crossguard stance is well-suited for quickly finishing these fights.
- Ensure you are in range before initiating an attack, as there is less lock-on compensation compared to other stances.
- Manage your stamina wisely, as the Crossguard stance has the highest stamina out of any stance, allowing you to correct misjudged attacks by blocking and focusing on parries.
By mastering the Crossguard stance, you’ll have a powerful tool at your disposal that can significantly impact your combat strategy in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. Unlocking and mastering the Crossguard stance will help you face even the toughest enemies and enjoy a more immersive gameplay experience
