How to Use Lightsabers Effectively
There are two main lightsaber types in Fallen Order; you’ll start off with the single saber and unlock the double-ended blade later on in the game. Knowing when to use them will make a huge difference to how effective you are in combat. If you’re fighting a handful of enemies, use the single saber, as it does more damage when you connect with an enemy.
However, if you’re fighting a big crowd or facing multiple stormtroopers with blasters, use the double blade. Deflecting multiple blaster bolts with it sees Cal send them all back quickly, while he’ll only deflect one back with the single lightsaber before blocking.
