Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Dual Wield Lightsabers – Can You Do It?

by Ginny Woo

If you’ve been cracking into Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and you’ve been wondering whether or not you can have a variety of fighting styles as Cal Kestis, well. You’ll be able to pick up different lightsaber upgrades that will change how you tackle enemies. If you’re wondering whether it’s possible in Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order to dual wield, well, we’ve got the answer.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Dual Wield Lightsabers – Can You Do It?

If you’re looking to be slicing and dicing with a lightsaber in each hand, then technically, the ability is there for you to execute in Fallen Order. However, it’s not a whole new fighting style for you. It’s actually two combat skills that are available to you whether you’re using a single-bladed lightsaber or the double-bladed lightsaber that you get later on in the game. You’ll have the ability to perform a Lightsaber split combat move which will let you dispatch even the toughest of foes either in a flurry or with an x-shaped heavy slash.

To actually make sure that you can unlock this special combat move, you’re going to have to wait until the portion of the game where you gain access to a second lightsaber. Once that happens, you’ll be able to technically dual-wield lightsabers for the moments where you’ve got those particular combat skills activated in battle. These are only temporary, of course, but they’re still a great strategy for fending off enemies and potentially staggering them so long as you’re using the double bladed lightsaber. 

Now that you know whether or not Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order lets you dual wield lightsabers, you might have something to look forward to if you’ve found that the Soulslike combat has been a little too tough for your liking (even with all the difficulty options). Need a hand with something else in Fallen Order besides decimating your enemies? Check out some other guides that we’ve put together:
