Star Wars Battlefront II Multiplayer Classes Overview

The expanded Multiplayer mode in Star Wars Battlefront II will offer you the chance to play 1 of 4 unique Trooper Classes – Officer, Assault Trooper, Heavy Trooper and Specialist. Each one of them has unique abilities and isn’t worth much on their own, but together they form an incredibly strong team.

To help maximize teamwork, Star Wars Battlefront II allows players to queue and spawn together in four-member “spawn waves.” Every respawn takes the player into a lobby where they’ll be able to quickly coordinate with other queued players while selecting their class, reinforcement, vehicle, and hero configurations and then reenter the game together.

Let’s take a closer look at each one of the 4 classes!


OFFICER


Star Wars Batlefront II Multiplayer Classes - Officer

Class Overview

Officers make their teammates better. They wield special skills to buff Troopers, lock down enemy positions with automated blasters, and strengthen their allies. This is a healing class.

Each trooper class can equip Star Cards to modify and enhance their combat abilities.

HEAVY TROOPER


Star Wars Batlefront II Multiplayer Classes - Heavy Trooper

Overview

The Heavy takes territory and dominates it, providing the foundation for a team position. Sometimes, you need to lay down a rain of suppression fire, hold the line near a capture point, or brute-force your way through a narrow corridor. Heavy Troopers excel in these roles. The Heavy trooper isn’t quite as mobile as other classes, but he makes up for the lack of agility with toughness and raw power. Each trooper class can equip Star Cards to modify and enhance their combat abilities.

SPECIAL CHARACTERS AND HEROES


Special characters are a step up from the regular 4 trooper classes. They can be unlocked with Battle Points, earned through gameplay.

Special characters are a new unique feature to Battlefront II. They stand between the regular troopers and Hero class characters andcome equipped with potent weapons and powerful abilities. Some, like the Clone Jumptrooper can rocket over the heads of enemies to take them from behind. Others, like the Death Trooper can deploy deadly devices like the spectacular Sonic Imploder. Special characters typically appear on maps where their presence is thematically appropriate. You’ll encounter First Order Flametroopers on Starkiller Base, but you’re not likely to see them on Theed.
