Reset yourself in the play area / Recenter your view

- Look out from under your PS VR headset to center yourself in your play area.
- Gaze (look) at the Pause Menu in Vader Immortal and press the “Recenter” button.
- You should now be facing forward in the game experience.
NOTE: Holding the START button for 2 seconds will also recenter you in the game.
Physical navigation and turn controls
In addition to turning your body, you can use the X and O buttons on the PS Move controllers to turn your character left and right, respectively.
Aiming with the Force
If you’re having difficulty using the Force to catch objects and enemies, try holding your hand up high enough to aim at your target. Be sure to hold your hand up in front of your view and aim through it to focus the Force on your target.
Save the final shots for the attacking remote
Remote droids will fire at you in volleys of 3 or more depending on their model. Deflect their initial shots to surrounding enemies, then deflect the final shots back to destroy the attacking remote. This will maximize the damage inflicted.
Parry strikes from weak Octodroids to stun them
Swing through melee attacks from weak Octodroids to parry. This will instantly stun the droid and leave it vulnerable.
Repost quickly after a droid swings at you
When a droid swings its blade at you, you’ll have a chance to repost, provided the droid is within reach. As the droid swings at you, block its strike and notice if it moved in close when it attacked. If so, immediately counter with a swing of your own to repost. This can significantly decrease the amount of time it takes to complete a round.
Shove a lightsaber clash to break it
When you block an Elite Octodroid’s power attack with a solid block, it will initiate a Saber Clash. Hold your lightsaber steady and then shove the droid’s saber to break the clash and stun the droid.
Throw enemies into each other
Throwing weak enemies into each other will destroy them both in a single action. Weak enemies are also quicker to subdue with the Force. Throw weak enemies into stronger ones to stun them. Use the Force to immediately grab the stunned enemy and throw them into another.
Steer your thrown lightsaber on its return
When you throw the lightsaber, it will follow a single trajectory as it travels away from you. However, it will adjust its path as it returns to your hand. Try steering the lightsaber through unsuspecting enemies as the weapon comes back to you.
Blasters for knocking out droids quickly
When it comes to the melee droids in the Dojo, there’s no match for a good blaster at your side. Shoot them to quickly dispense the combatants. When the blaster is spent, press the TRIANGLE button to drop it.
