Saber Throw is an attack available only to Jedi and Sith Heroes. When you use this attack, your unit will throw their lightsaber in the direction you are aimed. This leaves you without a defense for a brief moment, and may get you killed, so use it wisely. Regular units will be killed on contact, but heroes will usually be able to withstand one hit, so try and make the saber pass through them on both the way out and the way back. It can also be used to finish off enemies with only a little health left. Some players find it useful to try and 'snipe' with their saber throw. This is when they go up to a high point and try to hit distant enemies with their saber throw. This is a very damaging attack for these heroes, and should be used often.


  • It should be noted that thrown lightsabers can still affect you after their enemy's death. If the enemy throws their lightsaber before dying, the player should roll or move out of the way to avoid being hit.
  • Dodging is an effective way to dodge thrown lightsabers.
  • Note that the returning saber will go through walls to reach its wielder after it's been thrown.
    • Therefore, a great strategy is to locate an area with many enemies, preferably a corridor, throw the saber at the horde at enemies, take a step to the side, and wait around the corner for the saber to come back.


  • The best hero suited for lightsaber throw is Darth Maul, as his lightsaber has an extended reach for a hero.
  • Obviously enough, Aalya Secura can only throw one lightsaber at a time even though she carries two in-game.
