Are any of the current non-projectile weapons able to block a lightsaber? You know, like the Force Staffs on Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith?

Blocking hasn't even been implemented yet, but at the moment I don't know of any weapons we have that would block a lightsaber.

Actually in the Force Unleashed wookies with Ryyk blades were able to block Vader's light saber by crossing both blades. so Ryyk blades are onebut their must be two.

About the only thing that can block a 'saber is something called 'cortosis weave' (probably butchered the spelling)

Also Felucian bones their light saber resistant but i highly doubt that they would be put into combine any way :\

You're forgetting the principles of KISS. Either all weapons will be able to block lightsabers (as in the KOTOR games, where they're assumed to have a basic cortosis weave) or none of them will be.

I expect that it will likely be assumed that all weapons will have trace elements of cortosis, and be able to block lightsabers. But that's just my guess.

I hope heavy armours of all types (or all armours) will have cortosis weave in them, or lightsabres will be awfully overpowered ;)

Lightsabers work like any other weapon, just like in most MMOs, console games, etc. They have a damage factor per hit and follow combat rules like other weapons. There's no such thing as them automatically slicing someone in half or whatever you're imagining for some reason.

If I wore underwear, it would have cortosis weave.


Russ> This is an ok game with terrible people.

Cortosis, phrik, beskar, ultrachrome, neutronium, darkswords, Bane's parasites the name of which I can't remember right now, any objects imbued with Force Weapon, any objects created or altered by Sith Alchemy, probably some more stuff I can't remember.

This list is from memory, it's been a while since I've been on Wookieepedia. Regardless though, the rarity of the materials combined with the nature of damage in a game means that most likely all weapons will have a measure of resistance against a lightsaber.


If it bleeds, I can kill it.

Orbilisks is the name of the parasite, and Viroblades were could stop the blade to
