Jedi Survivor has a total of 25 perks for us to find, and you should definitely not miss out on any of them. No matter if you want to do more damage, grab a bit more EXP or just need some help with dodging enemies attacks, there is a fitting perk for all of your needs. Tune Cal's combat abilities according to your ideas and preferences.

Since there is just a limited number of perk slots, you have to choose wisely and find the ones that embrace your strengths or compensate for your weaknesses. But first we need to figure out, how to get them.

Jedi Survivor: How To Find Perks

Unlocking the perk system is fairly easy. You will be introduced to it on Koboh. Just before arriving at the Rambler's Reach outpost, you will have to defeat the Rancor in the Sodden Grotto, which will reward you with your first perk: Shatter.

After this, there are multiple ways to unlock perks. Some of them you will discover in Meditation Chambers, others can be bought from Zee with Datadiscs.
