The best Perks in 'Jedi: Survivor.'

Most Perks in Jedi: Survivor are welcome additions to your arsenal, but some are much more useful than others. And depending on your playstyle, some might be more appropriate than others. However, most players will find that Persistence is the best perk in Star Wars: Jedi Survivor.

This Perk allows you to regain health after eliminating enemies while the Slow skill is active. Cal will often find himself surrounded by enemies, making this a great Perk to prevent your health bar from reaching zero during even the most unfavorable of circumstances.

The Shatter Perk is another great option in Jedi: Survivor. This Perk makes it easier to break an enemy’s guard, giving you an opening to attack. It’s especially useful when up against Shield Troopers or other foes with impressive defensive chops — and it’s highly recommended for folks tackling high-level content.

For example, if you prefer to fight from a distance, then Marksmanship and Dexterity might be solid options. And if you have fast reflexes and are skilled at parrying attacks, then Precision should earn a slot in your Perks lineup.

There are dozens of Perks to experiment with in Jedi: Survivor, and it’s worth your time to collect them all and test them out on the battlefield.

Keep in mind that there’s a set number of Perk Slots that you can use at any one time, so it might take some trial and error to figure out which is best for your playstyle. But since Jedi: Survivor is a long game, you should have plenty of time to figure out your ideal setup before taking on its endgame content.
