Star Wars: Battlefront – Tons of Characters, Weapons, Power-Ups and Star Cards Detailed
Star Wars: Battlefront is a rather big game, and it has a large variety of characters, weapons, power-ups and equipment for you to use, on top of the Star Cards to empower you in battle.
As part of the new planetary exploration site, many of those were detailed. As we did yesterday for screenshots and video, today we gathered all the information on those elements, and there’s a ton to learn.
You can check everything out below, and learn more on who you’re going to play in the game, and on what kind of blasters you’ll kill all that rebel scum with.
The Rebel Alliance stood bravely against the evil of the Galactic Empire, never backing down despite overwhelming odds. Formed from resistance movements that arose during the Clone Wars, the Rebellion worked in secret for decades to overthrow the Emperor and restore democracy to the galaxy. Eventually, armed with the firepower of ships like the X-wing and A-wing, and the leadership of figures including Princess Leia and Admiral Ackbar, the Rebel Alliance triumphed over the Empire at the Battle of Endor.
The Rebel Alliance attracted freedom fighters from all corners of the galaxy, even the desert planet of Tatooine.
Nearly two decades after the fall of the Republic, Princess Leia Organa fled to Tatooine with the stolen plans for the Death Star. Leia’s mission failed when Darth Vader’s Star Destroyer seized her ship in orbit above Tatooine. Knowing she’d be captured, Leia fed the plans into R2-D2’s memory banks with instructions to find Obi-Wan.
Drawn from many homeworlds and species, Rebel troopers were the Alliance’s front-line soldiers in the war against the Empire. They defended the Alliance’s leaders on countless worlds and during many operations, changing uniforms and tactics to meet each challenge.
A green-skinned reptilian species, Rodians come from the jungle planet of Rodia, but they can be found throughout the galaxy –– from the Core World elite to the lowest of the Outer Rim fringe.
Rebel scouts used a low-tech solution for security by patrolling the snowy plains on tauntauns, furry bipedal lizards able to withstand the planet’s frigid conditions.
The rebels stationed on Hoth were trained specifically for operation in subzero terrain.
Originating from the planet Tibrin, the amphibious Ishi Tib species can be recognized by their green skin, characteristic eyestalks, and overall bird- and lizard-like appearance.
Quarren are an alien species characterized by the four tentacles that protrude from their jaws. They have deep turquoise eyes, and each hand is capped with finned or suction-cup-tipped fingers. Quarren hail from the planet Mon Cala, a world they share with the Mon Calamari.
During the Clone Wars, Sullust hosted a battle between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Years later, the Alliance to Restore the Republic used the planet as the staging area for its fleet for the Battle of Endor.
Rebels stationed on Sullust are trained specifically for operation on the dangerous volcanic terrain.
Proud, self-determined, and even arrogant according to some, the Zabrak is one of the most independent species in the galaxy. These Iridonia-born carnivores are recognizable by their horns and facial tattoos.
Sullustans are humanoid beings from the planet Sullust with two flaps of jowls around their cheeks. Nien Nunb, co-pilot to Lando Calrissian in the Battle of Endor, was a notable Sullustan.
A green-skinned humanoid species with long, noseless faces and red eyes, Duros were a common sight in the galaxy, found everywhere from the corridors of power on Coruscant to dingy cantinas on Tatooine.
Stormtroopers are elite shock troops fanatically loyal to the Empire and impossible to sway from the Imperial cause. They wear imposing white armor, which offers a wide range of survival equipment and temperature controls to allow the soldiers to survive in almost any environment. Stormtroopers wield blaster rifles and pistols with great skill, and attack in hordes to overwhelm their enemies.
Biker scouts are lightly armored compared with other stormtroopers, which allows them to move more quickly and easily in a range of environments. They’re also trained for more independence and adaptability than most Imperial troops. The Empire used biker scouts for a range of missions, including reconnaissance and infiltration. On Endor, they used speeder bikes to patrol the forests, guarding against threats to the shield generator protecting the second Death Star during its construction in orbit above the moon.
Snowtroopers are stormtroopers trained for operations in arctic conditions and equipped with specialized gear to protect them against cold. During the Battle of Hoth, they were deployed from AT-ATs to quickly and ruthlessly take control of Echo Base.
Magma troopers — a specialized division of Imperial stormtroopers — crush revolts on volcanic mining worlds like Sullust. They wear armor designed to withstand extremely high temperatures.
Seemingly appearing out of thin air, the Shadow Trooper can be a truly unpleasant surprise using its cloaking device. Be extra observant and stay away from the T-21 Heavy Blaster fire.
Stormtroopers dispatched to desert worlds wear specialized gear and are nicknamed sandtroopers. Sandtroopers wear standard stormtrooper armor augmented with cooling units, a helmet sand filter, and a survival backpack with extra rations and water. While hunting for the Death Star plans on Tatooine, sandtroopers used native dewbacks as mounts.
Equipped with a powerful DLT-19 Heavy Blaster, the fearless shock trooper should be considered a real threat. These troops can withstand a lot of blaster damage — and deal a lot of it themselves.
