Fallen Order is Too Hard. 3 Ways to Make it Easier

Fallen Order is Too Hard. 3 Ways to Make it Easier

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order takes much of its game design inspiration from the Soulslike genre. Because of this inspiration, the game is incredibly hard, especially if you’re a new player. However, you can make things easier for yourself in a few ways. Let’s see how.

You can lower the difficulty to Story or Jedi Knight, depending on how challenging you’re finding the game. Additionally, allow BD-1 to scan enemies, so you get a profile of the assailant. You can also combine Force abilities to cause massive damage and eradicate enemies.


Read on to learn more about how you can make Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order easier for yourself.

1. Change Difficulty Settings

The Soulsborne-inspired Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order can be very challenging. If you’re new to a game in this particular genre then you might have a very hard time playing. But Fallen Order provides many avenues to make it easier for yourself. So let’s discuss a few methods that you can do for yourself.

Difficulty Settings - Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

The first and perhaps most important change that you can make so Fall Order is easier for yourself is changing the difficulty settings. These can directly affect your gameplay, and you can set it to whatever you think is most applicable to you and your preferred playstyle.

An important thing to note here is that there are no achievements in Fallen Order tied to a specific difficulty setting. So you won’t miss out by choosing an easier difficulty setting whilst playing the game. You can also change these settings at any time during your gameplay.


There are four different difficulty settings for you to choose from. These four tiers include Story, Jedi Knight, Jedi Master, and Jedi Grandmaster. Each of these difficulty settings acts as sliders and they vary the Parry timing window, the amount of damage you receive, and how aggressive your enemies are whilst playing.

2. Scan Enemies

Scanning Enemies - Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

One of the ways you can prepare yourself for fighting against even the toughest enemies is by knowing what skills, abilities, and weaknesses they possess. You can do this through the use of your trusty BD-1 drone that can scan enemies for you.

Upon defeating an enemy, you can walk up to their corpse. At that time, you should press down on your Directional Pad and use BD-1’s ability to scan the enemy. This will register their information into your database and allow you to know their weaknesses, patterns, and strengths.

3. Combining Force Abilities

Skills -Fallen Order

In Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Cal can unlock several different Force abilities that can be used in combination with each other to accrue maximum effect. It can be helpful to try these Force ability combinations by yourself. Here we’ll tell you about the best abilities for you to get in the first place.

Dash Strike

The first skill that I’d highly recommend for you to use in Fallen Order is the Dash Strike. Not only does it allow you to quickly close the distance between you and the enemy, but it can also greatly increase the damage you do to them.

Additionally, you can jump over numerous enemies’ heads and strike at their backs for increased damage. All this is to say that you should be using this ability to make the game easier for yourself.

Agile Deflection

Ranged blaster attacks can be incredibly annoying to deal with because they tend to damage your blind spot. In those situations, it can be far more beneficial to have abilities that increase your defenses. Agile deflection can do just that.


The ability will let you run at enemies you wanna fight, before taking damage, and will let you get into larger group battles without having to worry about ranged attack damage. Deflections are always a good idea.

Improved Stims/ Personalized Stims

Improved Stims and their sibling skill Personalized Stims are both great skills to obtain because they increase the number of Stim canisters that heal you. Especially on the final few planets, when the difficulty curve goes into overdrive, it can be very challenging to play the game because of all the damage.

In those situations having backup health regen and an increase in the amount of HP healed can be the difference between winning a fight and dying to it and having to restart.

Grasping Pull

My final recommendation to you in terms of skills would be Grasping Pull. In all honesty, it is an incredibly simple skill, but it can be used in conjunction with various environmental situations and other abilities for devastating effects.

Normal-sized enemies and creatures will be picked up and pulled toward you. Allowing you to quickly take out an enemy that might be hiding behind other creatures or that might be holding you back through ranged attacks. In either case, this skill can make a variety of deadly combos possible and will make the game easier for you.

Several systems, skills, and abilities can make the game easier for you. You can change the game’s internal difficulty through the settings, but other game systems can make playing Fallen Order a breeze regardless of what difficulty you’d like to take on.
