Also I found a fun spot to shoot down air from. You can jetpack ontop of the AT-ATs pretty handy.



Saw a guy on top of the AT-AT on Endor, so I got up into the highest point in the trees and took him out. He was up there again within a minute, so I took him out again. While up there I got a ton of kills and did some serious damage to the AT-AT as it passed below.

Then he came back as Fett and found me.

Because they don't really care and just want to get the kills.

Personally I find myself judging people that pull Luke or Han on supremacy maps. Come on guys, Leia is so dammed good on those points, even if she is boring.

Luke is good for breaking an enemy concentration.

Han is good for dying and wasting a hero token i guess

I agree. Han seems kinda pointless as a Hero. He doesn't have Leia's utility and he doesn't have Luke's damage.

Dead weight, just like this post.




I always tell myself the next time i get a hero token i'm gonna be Luke or Vader and be that guy that leads the charge to turn on/off an uplink or hold a point down. But then every time i actually get it in game i go "goddamn it i gotta be Leia she's just so handy to have around. Even if she doesn't really stop the explosive spam as soon as people see your shield go up.

Hans charged shot can kill a tie in one hit.

Works for consoles too as long as your EA/Origin account is linked with your console account via the same email address. Mine didn't work at first but EA support was able to fix it in about 15 minutes with them online.

I unlocked the SE-14C based on previous goon suggestion and it is my go-to for smaller maps now, when I play Droid Run. I suggest you add explosive shot. It is SILLY good.

39 Kills with Han before I went down. Still not sure how I got the other 40ish kills besides having storm troopers conga line running right past me over and over again.

I'm just wondering if the DLC ends up being 4 maps on 1 planet or 2 maps on 2 planets or just kind of mixes poo poo up going forward.

I bought this for PS4 at Best Buy for $50 (got it price matched) but now I feel like I'd much rather be using a mouse and keyboard to control this. Is there any way I can bring this back to Best Buy and swap it out for a boxed PC copy? Would I have to pay the difference since the price I matched was only for the console versions?

I still have my receipt.

I felt the same way until you realize this game is catered to controllers and mouse and keyboard doesn't help much, if at all. The game autoaims for hip firing, and zooming in actually makes it harder to hit people. Flying is also easier once you realize you can hold the left trigger to lock on and it autoaims and follows for you. You basically wouldn't be gaining anything from kb/m controls on this. It's so very different than BF4 and such. It's just stupid simple controls and fun.

It autoaims for hipfire? I don't see this happening, I'm on PS4. It'll "lock on" during ADS but I'm not seeing any aim assist when I'm just running around, am I missing something completely?

They used to call me tricky-kid, I lived the life they wish they did.

It boggles the mind that for fighter squadron they can put a fully modeled 3D star destroyer off in the distance instead of having it come zooming in mid-round to the air space at the center of the map.

Give us something to dodge around and let the rebels attack the shields for God sakes.

To be fair, "fully modeled" is a bit of a stretch for that thing. Someone found the render of it and it is pretty low-res up close

It certainly auto aims when you hip fire. It's very noticable.

It does. As soon as it goes red, you can get hits even if it's above the dudes head. If there is movement there is some janky hit detection going on but half the shots still hit even if they have no reason to be hits.

If you go into scoped mode, you're on your own. If you're a great shot, then awesome, otherwise just hipfire that poo poo.

Yeah, the only one I was really at all disappointed with is Ion Shot (which naturally was the first one I bought). The damage increase seems really insignificant. I still use it against the AT-AT because every bit counts, but in everyday use against AT-STs and turrets it barely seems to make a dent.

It was useful in the beta where AT weapons were virtually nonexistent, but now that we have ion torpedoes it is pretty much a waste

It's a small amount of magnetic aim. It's noticable but it's not massive.
