Open the door, It's Mr Green.

This is my robot, give it back to me

The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order skill tree offers you and Cal a plethora of different opportunities to focus your abilities to suit your particular Jedi playstyle. But not all skills are created equal, with certain ones requiring far more commitment and more skill points than others to obtain.

Our Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order skill tree guide will walk you through every skill in each of the three branches, as well as how to expand the skills available to you, and some of the best skills to help keep you alive throughout the game's punishing campaign. Let’s get to know some of them.

10. Overhead Slash | Lightsaber (early game)

Hey, man, look! Mine is red. 

This skill with such a meaningful name is one of the most elegant skills in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, I must say. Very handy and easy to get as well. In my point of view, this skill says more about Star Wars than any other one. 

  • You can exactly slash weak enemies easily.
  • Despite being needed to unlock the rest of the Lightsaber category, Overhead Slash is still a very useful skill to have unlocked, as the additional power boost will play a major part in speeding up any combat encounters that you may receive early on in the game.

9. Mass Push | Force (early game)

I'm gonna teach you a lesson 

When it comes to the Force, Mass Push is one of my favorite skills in the category as it can drastically affect the way that you engage in combat. Opening up plenty of strategic combat moves, Mass Push is definitely one of the first skills you should consider unlocking, especially if you're struggling to take down the larger, more powerful enemies.

  • Holding Push allows Cal to push groups of enemies and stagger large enemies.

8. Dash Strike | Lightsaber (early game)

Look, Dad, without hands. 

I love the dash strike. It’s unstoppable against bounty hunter droids too. Very fun to use. Also I've never flipped over my opponent when doing the dash strike, learning something new every day. This is absolutely new for me. Stuck in a sticky situation and need to escape fast? The Dash Strike will allow you to dash towards your target to potentially avoid incoming attacks from those around you. The ability will also allow you to dash and flip over your targets, perfect for when enemies are loading up their special attacks.

  • Cal dashes forward and attacks his target. Jump while dashing to flip over the target instead.
  • This skill reminds me of Dante from Devil May Cry, a great swordsman, I think that he had some attacks like this one, but everything is greater with a lightsaber of course. 

7. Force Attunement | Force (early game)

Come here, you little bastard

Much like Overhead Slash, Force Attunement is one of Fallen Order's most basic skills. However, with so many skills and abilities that manage to utilize and drain your Force, you would be surprised at just how quickly your Force will be used up. For this reason, increasing Cal's maximum Force will be an essential upgrade if you plan to run the likes of Howling Push, Dash Strike, and Overhead Slash as these all take a large chunk of your Force stamina.

In order to make the most of this skill, be sure to continue upgrading Cal's force with the likes of Greater Force Attunement and Ultimate Attunement.

  • Cal's maximum Force is increased.
  • Basically, this is the basis of most of the skills you need to have, otherwise how will you be able to sustain the rest of your powers? So this, like the previous ones, is one of the essential skills to have early on in the game.

6. Agile Deflection | Survival (early game)

I've played Prince of Persia, guys. You can count on me.

Whether you're rushing enemies or simply trying to pass them as you backtrack through the planet, Agile Deflection is arguably one of the most useful skills in the entire skill tree. Setting you back just 1 Skill Point, we highly recommend that you work to unlock this skill as soon as possible.

  • Cal automatically deflects blaster bolts while he is sprinting or wall-running.
  • Well, perfectly a skill that fits the survival profile, right? With this maneuver of movement along with power, it is possible to move in an agile and useful way to keep life intact or even escape death.

5. Lightsaber Throw | Lightsaber (late game)

Why I never thought of coupling them? 

Although the Lightsaber Throw may cost a rather hefty 3 Skill Points, we strongly stand by the skill and believe that it is definitely justified by its effectiveness in combat. The skill will allow you to throw your lightsaber at enemies from afar, which can be utilized strategically in combat to slow enemies down due to its stun effect.

  • Cal throws his lightsaber forward before pulling it back to him, hitting any enemies along the way.
  • Even though it costs a bit more of the skill points, this is certainly a skill you should consider acquiring in the mid-game. 

4. Lightsaber Mastery (late game)

I was kidding, bro.

To become a true master swordsman one needs to master the various techniques of fencing, and with that, we also have the spatial swordsmanship of a lightsaber driver.

Lightsaber Mastery increases all lightsaber damage. Against late-game bosses, the difference it makes can mean victory versus death, and will limit your need to use extra Stim healing items in battle.

  • This one doesn’t need an explanation. Lightsaber Mastery will increase all outgoing Lightsaber damage while it costs three skill points. Of course, it’s good. Final skill in the branch.

3. Howling Push (late game)

I smashed an ant...

Howling Push increases the effectiveness of the Push ability, allowing Cal to knock down multiple enemies simultaneously and topple larger enemies who have higher resistance. Using this ability against enemies near ledges can help thin the crowds or even win bigger fights in a single move. I need this skill in my life to combat the problems of a young adult life.

  • This ability improves Cal’s AoE impact. Area impact is great when you’re facing a group of enemies. It’s also good against Dathomir.
  • Hold the Force Push button to send several enemies backward and even stagger larger enemies. If Stormtroopers block you in with their back to the ledge, utilizing these skills will push them all off the ledge at once. Against bosses, you’ll want to be more careful when you try it, but it can help cut down on weaker enemies before you face large targets.

2. The Power of Friendship (late game)

Hello boys

The power that every mortal would like to have. When you find yourself with no way out, you have just been kicked out of a relationship, your father has abandoned you, and you have gone to buy a pack of cigarettes. You have no more hope, there is nothing left to wield your sword for; except for your precious friends. Just like a true gamer like myself, you need to have the knowledge of the anime.

  • The Power of Friendship skill gives BD-1's stim canisters the ability to refill Cal's force meter alongside his health. This skill has a single practical use but makes the canisters all the more valuable. Application of this skill warrants far more care when using stims to avoid prematurely exhausting the supply.
  • The Power of Friendship: 3 Force Points, Requires Greater Force Attunement.

1. Ultimate Force Attunement (late game)


In the same clichéd theme of the action movie, the ultimate power attunement is your last form, the higher, inner energy within your being. After achieving the power of friendship, this is the last stage you can reach, very much in shounen manga style.

Cal's Force reserve increases for the last time. This final boost allows for more Force inclusive combos that can make Cal a devastating combatant. Playing it smart and using abilities that cause damage will regain Force quickly after expelling it.

  • Even further increases Cal’s maximum Force.
  • Ultimate Force Attunement increases Cal's max force. It costs you 2 Points to equip it. Grasping Pull is the best skill to include in your skills set. It allows you to pull an enemy towards you and hold him, so that you can lend him a nice hit.
