Looking to learn how to throw your lightsaber in Jedi Survivor? Developer Respawn has done a stellar job of weaving tutorials throughout Jedi Survivor’s early hours. These go a long way to teaching you the skills you’ll need to take on the Galactic Empire. But, there’s one major omission, which is lightsaber throwing. The game does eventually get round to teaching you the move, but it comes later than we’d like.
In this guide, we’ll break down how to throw your lightsaber in Jedi Survivor for those situations where a traditional slash or stab just won’t cut it. To complement your lightsaber throwing skills, we recommend learning how to parry in Jedi Survivor and brushing up on the Jedi Survivor enemies list so you have an idea of what you’ll be up against.
How to throw the lightsaber in Jedi Survivor
To throw your lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi Survivor, hold down L1 and tap the triangle button on PS5 or hold down LB and tap the Y button on Xbox Series X|S. Cal will then throw his lightsaber straight forward in the direction he’s facing before it boomerangs back to him. If you’re locked onto an enemy, the lightsaber will automatically bolt towards the target causing damage.
The lightsaber throw works in all stances, including the starter single and double-bladed stances, so don’t hesitate to weave it in your go-to set of moves when taking on enemies. There’s no cool down on lightsaber throws, allowing you to use and abuse it to mow through large groups of enemies, especially if they get a little too close for comfort.
That covers how to throw your lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi Survivor. Check out our other guides for the game, including everything you need to know about the Jedi Survivor new game plus mode, how long is Jedi Survivor, and the full Jedi Survivor trophies and achievements list.
