What Are Perfect Evades and How Do You Perform Them?

Perfect evades, or precision evades as the game also calls them, involve hitting the evade button just as an enemy attacks. It’s a little like parrying in that timing is very important. Luckily, if you go to a meditation point, you can access the training activities in Jedi: Survivor and practice a perfect evade in the advanced techniques.

If you pull off a perfect evade, you get some of your Force energy back. But if you evade too late, you’ll take damage. It’s up to you to decide whether it’s worth the risk. You can return to the training menu if you want to keep on practicing until you’ve got the hang of perfect evades.

And that’s the answer to how to evade in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.
