There are four Attack Types within Star Wars: The Old Republic:

  • Melee
  • Ranged
  • Tech
  • Force

The Attack Type, Damage Types, current character Statistics and effects of attacker and target, as well as in-game positioning, all come together to determine the damage received from an attack.

The key aspect to keep in mind regarding the Attack Types is that the damage from Tech and Force attacks is not affected by the target's Armor or Shield stats. For fuller details on how Damage Types and Attack Types come into play in determining whether they hit and how the final damage is calculated, see the Attack and Damage Calculations article.
