       *** INTRODUCTION ***
    **************************
    
    This is my first ever guide and I've decided to do it on one
    of my favourite and best games ever; Star Wars Battlefront 2.
    You can see what you'll find in the above contents and I'm
    hopeful it will help anyone new to Battlefront and the type
    of gameplay it is. Hopeful anyone reading will find this
    FAQ useful and above all helpful in becoming an efficient
    killing machine on the battlefield.

       *** ABOUT BATTLEFRONT 2 ***
    *********************************
    
    Get ready for the rise of the Empire. Wage an epic conquest
    across the Star Wars galaxy. Take control of powerful Jedi
    and legendary heroes while wading into the mayhem. Fight
    through the cold reaches of space amongst swarms of star
    fighters. March across war-scarred battlefields from Star
    Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith. More intense combat.
    Bigger Battles. More unit classes and vehicles. New
    weaponr and abilities. Welcome to Star Wars Battlefront 2!
    
    Star Wars BF2 offers epic action on a huge scale
    through many game modes. There are many ways to conquer
    the opposition. Before stepping onto the battlefield
    each player selects a class with unique abilities.
    In deep space or on the planets surface, players work
    to advance and gain territory taking out enemies and
    capturing their command posts (basically respawn points).
    Missions also have key objectives that must be met in
    order to achieve victory.

    *******************************
       *** UNITS: THE EMPIRE ***
    *******************************
    
    ***STORM TROOPER***
    
    Equipment:
    Blaster Rifle
    Blaster Pistol
    Thermal detonators
    
    Pro's:
    -All round good troops
    -Decent firepower with all of the equipment
    -Good amount of readily available ammo
    -Effectiv at clearing rooms
    
    Con's:
    -No special Attributes
    
    Overall Rating: 8/10
    
    One of the Empire's best troops. Effective at almost any
    needed task and the bulk of the army. You cannot fault 'em
    
    TIPS:
    
    Group Storm Troopers together with
    Dark Troopers in front for asaults
    in close quarter combat. Together
    they can overwhelm any enemy positions
    However, go easy on the grenades as 
    the friendly fire will kill you and
    your team mates.
    
    TIP;rdbizzle1986:
    i usually aim to the head and fire in bursts
    not hold it down. especially for the stormtroopers whose blasts
    scatter a lot if it is held down making it hard to get a hit. 
    
    ***Shock Trooper***
    
    Equipment:
    Rocket Launcher
    Blaster Pistol
    Thermal Detonator
    Mines
    
    Pro's:
    -Effective weapon for vehicles and turrets.
    -Big splash damage radius
    -Mines can be useful for traps
    
    Con's
    -Mines very visible in some locations.
    -Slow reload time
    -Rocet launcher poor against aware singular opponents.
    
    Overall: 7.5/10
    Mostly for vehicle maps although good for maps with tight
    corridors and such.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Place mines in grassy,hidden areas to avoid the chance
    of them being seen by enemy troops. Also place your
    mines near the enemy spawn points for the element
    of surprise. Also blast at eney vehicles with a
    combination of grenades and rockets as so other
    troops will have a less hard time.
    
    ***Scout Trooper***
    
    Equipment:
    Sniper Rifle
    Blaster Pistol
    Thermal Detonator
    Auto Turret
    
    
    Pro's:
    -Fast Dashers
    -x2 Zoom
    -Campers choice
    -2 shots kill
    
    Con's:
    -5 shots per clip and slow rate of fire
    -Poor close up
    -Ineffective on non-sniper friendly maps
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    Effective on sniper friendly maps but
    else where will have a hard time.
    
    TIPS:
    
    When finding a place to snipe ensure your back
    is covered and the enemy won't jump you. I suggest
    getting groups of Storm Troopers to follow you and 
    stay with you while you camp.
    
    ***Imperial Engineer***
    
    Equipment:
    Shotgun
    Fusion Cutter
    Detpack
    Dispenser Health and Ammo
    
    Pro's:
    -Can restore own health
    -Powerful close range weapon
    -Can fix up vehicles and hack into enemies
    
    Con's:
    -Poor at long range
    -No actual secondary weapon
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Shotgun alternative for the Storm Trooper.
    Although not the most effective in a frenzy
    distance fire fight.
    
    TIPS:
    
    You can heal up injured team mates with the health
    and ammo dispenser as well as heal up yourself.
    Careful not to do this in a fire fight however
    as it could cost your life.
    
    
    TIP;rdbizzle1986:
    try not to shot the shotgun until you are as close
    to the target as possible.the detpacks work well 
    when placed in choke points you can wait for a group 
    of enemies and blow them all up.
    
    ***Imperial Officer***
    
    Equipment:
    Mortat Launcher
    Sonic Blaster
    Rage (attack increase)
    Recon Droid
    
    Pro's:
    -Sonic blaster is effective
    -Mortars have good range
    -Rally gives men a War Hero bonus
     temporarily
    -Orbital Strike with Recon Droid is
     devastating.
    
    Con's:
    -Mortars don't blow up instanly
    -One ammo for each sub weapon
    -Recon Droid easily destroyed
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    Not the best Officer but still effective
    if put to best use.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use the Recon droid's orbital strike to
    take out enemies vehicles or to clear 
    a path to their command posts.
    
    ***Dark Trooper***
    
    Equipment:
    Arc Caster
    Commando Pistol
    Thermal Detonators
    
    Pro's:
    -Can fly
    -Effective weapon that can go through
     multiple opponents.
    -Bigger amount of health than normal troops.
    
    Con's:
    -Jetpack is more of an extended boost and
     takes ages to charge up.
    -Arc Caster can take awhile to charge
    -An uncharged Arc Caster is very much ineffective.
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    Not the best specialist unit in the game but not
    by far the worst. The jetpack while very much
    temporary is still useful.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use the "Jump-pack" to get to high of ledges or
    escape danger rather than to attack enemies in
    the sky. Use the Arc Caster uncharged when in a
    hectic fire fight and charge up while you look for
    enemies.
    
    From: zergdeath
    
    With the dark trooper, I like to charge up the lighting gun and then
    run in with 2 or 3 soliders on follow commands. Once I find some 
    enemies (5 of more) out in the open then fire the gun. The proceed to 
    jetback backwards about ten feet charging the gun again and you 
    will kill 5 enemies. Then your CPU guards will guard u as u reload
    and repeat.

       ***   UNITS: REBELS   ***
    ********************************
    
    ***Rebel Soldier***
    
    Equipment:
    Blaster Rifle
    Blaster Pistol
    Thermal Detonators
    
    Pro's:
    -Camoflauged on woodland levels
    -Effective weapon like all Trooper classes
    -Good at all jobs
    
    Con's:
    -The wood land camo can be a dead give away in some areas
    -No special attributes
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Nothing bad to say like all of the soldiers in this class
    type.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use your camoflauge to an advantage on wood levels and
    hide in foilage and bushes etc. The storm troopers white
    armour is a dead give away so use this as your advantage
    to stage ambushes and attacks on unsuspecting folk.
    
    ***Rebel Vanguard***
    
    Equipment:
    Rocket Launcher
    Blaster Pistol
    Mines
    Thermal Detonators
    
    Pro's:
    -Good amount of health
    -Effective weapon for vehicles
    -Mines good for traps
    
    Con's:
    -Slow rate of fire
    -Limited ammo
    -Rocket launcher can't hack it against single units
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    The same as all the other heavy class units really.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Play like you would any the other Heavy class unit and go
    for vehicles and groups of enemies. Use mines for traps around
    ammo and health droids at enemy CP's.
    
    ***Rebel Smuggler***
    
    Equipment:
    Shotgun
    Fusion Cutter
    Detpack
    Health and Ammo Dispenser
    
    Pro's:
    -Can restore own health and re-supply with ammo.
    -Powerful close-mid range weapon
    -Can hack enemy vehicles as well as make turrets.
    
    Con's:
    -Poor long range weapon
    -No alternative weapon
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Shotgun fans alternative for normal troopers.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use detpacks to destroy enemy turrets and vehicles
    and when close to a vehicle use the fusion cutters to
    hack into it a render it useless for a couple of
    seconds then take out the occupance.
    
    *** Rebel Marksmen***
    
    Equipment:
    Sniper Rifle
    Blaster Pistol
    Auto Turret
    Thermal Detonators
    
    Pro's:
    -Actually has a voice this time
    -6 ammo as well
    -2 hits will kill
    
    Con's:
    -Weak health
    -No good upclose
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    Good Sniper, bad everything else
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use the auto turret to protest you while you
    camp but be careful as it doesn't follow you
    and you only have the one at a time.
    
    From: Martyn the Assassin
    
    snipers are MUCH better when covered by 
    an auto turret or 
    AI soldier, 
    and the higher the 
    ground the better better 
    angle for headshots
    
    ***Bothan Spy***
    
    Equipment:
    Incinerator
    Stealth
    Regeneration
    Timebomb
    
    Pro's:
    -Can turn invisible
    -Incinerator eats through health
    -Time bombs are great vehicle killers
    -Regeneration helps out team mates immensely
    
    Con's:
    -Stealth lasts as long as your stamina bar
    -Low amount of health
    -Rgeneration only works well with large groups
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Good but not great
    
    TIPS:
    
    Her's a bunch from GameFAQ's users.
    
    From: swjm
    
    For Bothans, always remember that your 
    stealth is based on your stamina. 
    Never run or Roll when Stealthed, 
    unless avoiding a grenade or something.
    Also, Don't take on big groups of units, 
    stick to picking off 1 or
    2 guys at a time. The bothan's 
    gun takes far too long to reload.
    
    From: mikeTherob
    
    with bothans if you get endurence their stealth lasts forever
    + sneak into an enemy command post crouch down while invisble once
    the they lose the CP get up and whipe everyone out with incinerator
    and finish capturing
    
    ***Wookiee Warrior***
    
    Equipment:
    Bowcaster
    Grenade Launcher
    Thermal Detonators
    Health/ammo dispenser
    
    Pro's:
    -Zoom with Bowcaster
    -Can replenish own health and ammo
    -Large amount of health
    -Accurate weapon when charged
    
    Con's:
    -Slow reload times
    -slow runners
    -Thermals not as good as old Timebombs
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Again good but not great. The lack of Timebombs
    isn't made up by the zoom.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Find a nice spot to snipe a fully charged and
    zoomed Bowcaster for a one hit kill. If not
    go out on to the battle and use the launcher
    to blow up vehicles a large groups of enemies.
    Thanks annoyingjk3 for the tip!
    
    *********************************
       ***   UNITS: REPUBLIC   ***
    *********************************
    
    ***Clone Trooper***
    
    Equipment:
    Blaster Rifle
    Blaster Pistol
    Thermal Detonators
    
    Pro's:
    -Good Rifle
    -Nice Reload speed
    
    Con's:
    -No special attributes
    -Gun needs to be shot in bursts at all times
    -Need group attacks on Droidekas and vehicles
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    No serious faults, just like the Storm Trooper.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use Clone Troopers as the bulk of an attack squad.
    When multiplied by four or five units their rapid
    rate of fire is enough to put anything away. When
    encountering Droidekas seek cover and blast from
    distances.
    
    ***Heavy Trooper***
    
    Equipment:
    Rocket Launcher
    Blaster Pistol
    Thermal Detonators
    Mines
    
    Pro's:
    -Effective weapon for vehicles and turrets
    -Big splas damage radius
    -Mines useful for traps
    
    Con's:
    -Mines very visible against light back drops
    -Very slow reload times
    -Rocket launcher too slow to fight most troops
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    For vehicle maps mostly. Good on maps with
    tight corridors where they can use the Rocket
    Launcher to it's maximum effect.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Place mines in grassy areas or at enemy CP's
    for the element of surprise. Blast the enemies
    vehicles from as far awy as possible as this
    will cause maximum damage.
    
    
    From: Yellow_Death
    
    Put mines on ammo droids get 6 kill with a pistole
    hit the week points AND use mines wisely.
    
    ***Clone Sharpshooter***
    
    Equipment:
    Sniper Rifle
    Blaster Pistol
    Thermal Detonator
    Auto Turret
    
    Pro's:
    -Excellent Dashers
    -x2 Zoom
    -2 shoots can kill
    -Campers choice
    
    Con's:
    -5 shots per clip and a slow rate of fire.
    -Poor close up with the Sniper Rifle
    -Ineffective on maps with nowhere good to snipe.
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    Effective on maps where they can snipe in good
    locations such as Kashyyk.
    
    TIPS:
    
    The Sharpshooter should hold back at long distances
    preferably near ammo droids as they are constantly
    re-supplied with sniper rounds. Pick off Droideka's
    -their personal shield makes them easy to spot. Wait
    for it to drop before firing a couple of rounds to
    eliminate these droids.
    
    ***Clone Engineer***
    
    Equipment:
    Shotgun
    Fusion Cutter
    Detpack
    Health and Ammo Dispenser
    
    Pro's:
    -Can restore own health and re-supply with ammo.
    -Powerful close-mid range weapon
    -Can hack enemy vehicles as well as make turrets.
    
    Con's:
    -Poor long range weapon
    -No alternative weapon
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Shotgun fans alternative for normal troopers.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use detpacks to destroy enemy turrets and vehicles
    and when close to a vehicle use the fusion cutters to
    hack into it a render it useless for a couple of
    seconds then take out the occupance. Stay out of big
    scale fire fights as you'll get completely owned.
    
    From: Martyn the Assassin
    
    if you're hurting and need health try 
    to keep an engineer with you at all times,
    they AI IS somewhat intelligent 
    (it could outsmart paris hilton) and will give
    you the ammo and health packs
    
    ***Clone Commander***
    
    Equipment:
    Chain Gun
    Blaster Pistol
    Rally (Defense increase)
    Recon Droid
    
    Pro's:
    -Infinate ammo with an awesome weapon
    -Recon droid good for recon XD
    -Rally effective in fire fights when with
     lots of team mates.
    
    Con's:
    -Weapon overheats fairly quick
    -Weapon doesn't fire straight away a it has
     to heat up.
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Probably the best commander class unit.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Get as many team mates following you as
    possible then when on an assault run activate
    rally to make your troops harder to kill.
    
    ***Jet Trooper***
    
    Equipment:
    EMP Launcher
    Thermal Detonators
    Commando Pistol
    
    Pro's:
    -Ability to fly
    -EMP is effective against Droideka's shield
    
    Con's:
    -Slow reload
    -Limited amount of rockets
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Slightly better than the Heavy Trooper
    with the air advantage.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use the Jet pack to move around the maps faster
    and reach usually unreachable areas to blow up
    enemy units or vehicles.
    
    From:  Linc_101
    
    When facing jetpack enemies, always try to attack from
    under them, as that's their weak point (sorta of obvious,
    but sometimes it's easy to forget in the heat of battle).
    
    ****************************
       ***   UNITS: CIS   ***
    ****************************
    
    ***Super Battle Droid***
    
    Equpment:
    Wrist Blster
    Tri-shot
    Wrist Launcher
    
    Pro's:
    -Improved Tri-shot
    -Decent secondary Rockets
    
    Con's:
    -Slower rate of fire than before
    -No alternative secondary weapon
     and you only have 3 rockets.
    -Rockets themselves are slow
    
    Overall: 6.5/10
    
    The weakest of the standard troopers
    with poor equipment and low ammo for
    the rockets.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Save your rockets for Jedi or vehicles
    or even huge grouped up enemies. Use your
    Tri-shot at a distance as it is for some
    reason more effective.
    
    From: Grievous2488
    
    Their wrist rocket does some
    descent damage to enemy infantry, so whenever you see a 
    group of enemy infantry try to fire at their
    center and aim for their feet. The Wrist Rocket is 
    also quite effective for attacking 
    enemy manned turrets. On the other hand, the Wrist 
    Rockets are not as strong as the thermal 
    detonators and they are not strong enough to 
    leave any significant damage to enemy vehicles.
    
    Each individual blaster shot they fire is stronger 
    than the individual shots of the clone 
    trooper's blaster, but the Super Battle 
    Droid's rate of fire is toned down, so you should 
    always try to make every shot count 
    and try to aim for your enemies' head.
    
    Their alternative Tri-Shot energy blast should only 
    be used whenever you are literally 
    anywhere from 1-10 ft. from the enemy and can 
    make a good transition from the Wrist 
    Blaster to the Tri-Shot blast. If you happen 
    to be using the Wrist Blaster first and the 
    enemy comes close I find it effective to quickly 
    tap the alternative weapon change button 
    and blast him with the Tri-Shot as it is 
    mostly efective only at close range.
    
    ***Assault Droid***
    
    Equpment:
    Rocket Launcher
    Blaster Pistol
    Thermal Detonators
    Mines
    
    Pro's:
    -Good amount of health
    -Effective weapon for vehicles
    -Mines good for traps
    
    Con's:
    -Slow rate of fire
    -Limited ammo
    -Rocket launcher can't hack it against single units
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    The same as all the other heavy class units really.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Play like you would any other Heavy class unit and go
    for vehicles and jedi. The splash damage will hurt an
    enemy but the chances are they walk away from it.
    
    ***Assassin Droid***
    
    Equipment:
    Sniper Rifle
    Blaster Pistol
    Thermal Detonators
    Auto Turret
    
    Pro's:
    -Now 6 shots instead of four
    -Good at running
    -Auto turret good for camping defense
    
    Con's:
    -No really effective close combat weapon
    -Sniper rifle has limited ammo
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    Just like all the other sniper classes.
    
    TIPS:
    When playing as the Assassin Droid look to
    take out Clone Commanders or Jet Troopers
    as these will cause the rest of your troops
    the most hassle. Also like all other snipers
    find a good vantage point to camp and activate
    auto turret to take out any enemy soldiers 
    coming up from behind.
    
    ***Engineer Droid***
    
    Equipment:
    Shotgun
    Fusion Cutter
    Ammo and health Dispenser
    Detpack
    
    Pro's:
    -Can restore own health and re-supply with ammo.
    -Powerful close-mid range weapon
    -Can hack enemy vehicles as well as make turrets.
    
    Con's:
    -Poor long range weapon
    -No alternative weapon
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Personally better than the Super Battle Droid.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use detpacks to destroy enemy vehicles or switch 
    the fusion cutters to hack into it a render it useless 
    for a couple of seconds then take out the occupance. 
    Stay out of big scale fire fights as you'll get 
    destroyed.

    hokay the cis have an advantage on polis messa any 
    droid can walk can walk into the 
    space area without dyeing so use it to your 
    advantage and slice the enemies AAT's  
    and take a squad to the furthest enemies CP
    
    ***Magna Guard***
    
    Equipment:
    Bulldog RLR
    Radiation Launcher
    Neuro Poison
    Recon Droid
    
    Pro's:
    -Bulldog homes in on the enemy
    -Nice amount of health
    -Neuro poison does major damage
    -Nice back up weapon
    
    Con's:
    -No staff like in the film
    -Bulldog is slow and easily dodged
    -Only one Neuro poison
    -Recon droid can be near useles sometimes
    -Not the fastest unit around
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    A good Commander class unit but just not fun
    to play in most cases.
    
    TIPS:
    
    I couldn't think of any, so Luckily Glitch119
    saved my life!
    
    From: Glitch119
    
    lock on to your enemy and aim it at the enemy. If you aim and
    the rocketgoes anywhere near ur opponents body (oppenent has
    to be locked on)then the rocket will hit the head for an
    instant kill.
    
    ***Droideka***
    
    Equipment:
    Repeating Blaster
    Shield Emitter
    
    Pro's:
    -Almost invincible in corridors
    -Infinite shield uses and ammo
    -Fast and powerful blasters
    -Speedy when in ball mode
    -Can't be head shotted
    
    Con's:
    -Slow getting out of ball mode even slower
     moving around in out of ball mode.
    -Can't protect back too well as you turn slow
    -Blasters over heat quite quickly
    -Defenceless when in ball mode
    
    Overall: 9/10
    
    The best CIS unit by far.
    
    TIPS:
    
    A cleverly placed Droideka can handle its
    self very well indeed and will completely
    own most Clone troopers. Be careful when your
    shield is down however as you easily killed
    and also be careful in your ball mode as 
    again your defenceless.
    
    From: Glitch119
    
    1 shot at the shield then the shield starts to lose energy. 
    So conserve ur energy by deactivating ur shield when enemies
    r no where in sight.
    
    From: Martyn the Assasin
    
    droidekas are good "human" shields to be mortar units behind 
    have the droideka in front of you slowly advancing and 
    lob grenades over it)
    
    From: thedivinewanderer
    
    Droidika's are most vunerable when they are deploying. 
    My strategy is to roll behind some 
    cover, then deploy into standing mode, put on your 
    sheild and waddle out from to face the 
    enemy.
    
    ******************************
       ***   SPACE UNITS   ****
    ******************************
    
    In space battles you are given two units;
    The pilot and the Marine. Seeing as these
    units are near enough identical I'll be
    doing the unit synopsis as: Pilot and Marine
    and not doing each individual factions.
    
    ***Pilot***
    
    Equipment:
    Blaster Pistol
    Timebomb
    Fusion Cutter
    
    Pro's:
    -Can heal any space fighter. Useful
     in dog fights.
    -Timebombs can take out the core systems
     from inside the enemy ship.
    
    Con's:
    -Limited amount of ammo for timebombs
    -Pistol overheats when you need it the most
    -No good at taking out other pilots or Marines
    
    Overall: 9/10
    
    The best space unit for taking the fight to space
    and for destroying the core systems.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Fly into the enemy starship with the transport
    craft to allow yourself and other team mates
    to spawn from inside the opponents own ship.
    Also use the time bombs to blow up the core
    systems from inside.
    
    ***Marine***
    
    Equipment:
    Blaster Rifle
    Rocket Launcher
    Thermal Detonators
    
    Pro's:
    -Good for clearing out auto turrets and
     a room full of pilots.
    -Rocket Launcher effective for taking out
     vehicles.
    
    Con's:
    -Poor at taking out the core systems from inside
    -Poor space fighters as they can't repair the ship
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    Obviously the worst Space unit.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use the marine for taking out pilots from
    the inside and blowing up starfighters for
    the enemy. When you go with a Pilot your
    extra firepower will be a great support.
    
    ****************************
       ***   HERO UNITS   ***
    ****************************
    
    Throughout the game you will have the chance to paly as the
    hero unit of your faction. You do so by completing certain
    objectives in Single player Campaign and by scoring an X amount
    of points in Instant Action or Multiplayer. This is a run down
    of the playable heroes.
    
    ***Darth Maul***
    
    Equipment:
    Double Saber
    Force Push
    Saber Throw
    
    Pro's:
    -Fast Combo and dash attack
    -Effective anti air combo
    -Multi hit dash attack and saber combo
    
    Con's:
    -Plain Force powers
    -The kicks in his saber combo do very small amounts of damage.
    
    Overall: 8.5/10
    One of the best out there but the force powers let 
    him down in comparison to others.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use Maul like you would Rambo and go on
    A killing spree of blood and mayhem. The Push/saber
    Throw combo is particularly effective against multiple
    Foes.
    
    ***Count Dooku***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsaber
    Force Lightning
    Force Choke
    
    Pro's:
    -Choke/Lightning combo
    -Dash attack doesn't cause you to stop still
    
    Con's:
    -Very slow Combo
    -Force Lightning is friendly fire keen
    -Dash attack is weak
    
    Overall: 7/10
    Faster Version of The Emperor
    
    TIPS:
    
    Play carefully as Dooku as strength isn't his
    Strong point. It's cunning and that's what you
    Have to be. Choke a single enemy then switch to
    Force Lightning to attack his friends around him.
    Also you're dash attack may be weak but at least you
    Can give any troops behind you an easier time by taking
    Some health off.
    
    ***The Emperor***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsaber
    Force Lightning
    Force Choke
    
    Pro's:
    -Choke/Lightning at same time like Dooku
    
    Con's:
    -Exactly the same as Dooku's except amplified!
    -SLOW SLOW SLOW!!!
    
    Overall: 4/10
    The only thing worth doing is the Choke/Lightning combo.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Don't be him unless you want to lose or you thing
    You are going to. In most cases a Storm Trooper is better
    than The Emperor.
    
    ***General Grievous***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsabers
    Rage (Attack Increase)
    
    Pro's:
    -Combo hits everywhere
    -Rage helps team mates out a lot!
    -Effective backwards attack
    -Dash attack is strong
    
    Con's:
    -Only the one jump
    -Combo can be hard to use
    -No distance attack
    
    Overall: 6.5/10
    Rage is effective for team mates but nothing else
    is special.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use Grievous carefully and block often as blaster fire
    Is the biggest threat seeing as you can't throw your
    Lightsabers. Use Rage with team mates present
    As otherwise it's a waste.
    
    ***Jango Fett***
    
    Equipment:
    Westar 33 Blaster
    Flamethrower
    Wrist Rocket
    Timebombs
    
    Pro's:
    -Very accurate pistol
    -Pistol has zoom
    -Flamethrower eats through health
    -Very long dash run
    
    Con's:
    -Weak pistol with limited ammo
    -Timebombs near useless except on vehicles
     and turrets
    -Flamethrower has small amount of ammo
    -Wrist Rockets are slow
    
    Overall: 6.5/10
    The weaker of the two Fett's but better than Leia as
    A blaster character.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Fly up high and start to snip on unsuspecting enemies
    To rack up a few kills and then get to planting Timebombs
    On the opponents vehicles.
    
    ***Boba Fett***
    
    Equipment:
    EE-3 Blaster Rifle
    Flamnethrower
    Wrist Rocket
    Detpack
    
    Pro's:
    -Detpack is an instant kill on troops and
     very damaging to unsuspecting heroes.
     Also an excellent trap.
    -Accurate and effective weapon.
    -Long dash Period
    -Flamethrower eats health. Especially on turret users.
    -Jetpack recharges slightly faster than Jango's.
    -Fast reload for Blaster
    
    Con's:
    -Limited ammo
    -Blaster Rifle only fires in bursts.
    -Slow Rockets.
    
    Overall: 7.5/10
    A lot better than almost all the other blaster heroes.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use the Detpacks as traps for unsuspecting prey
    And on vehicles for decent damage. Boba's weapon is
    Also a guaranteed kill on most troops so conserve the ammo
    As it will go fast.
    
    ***Anakin Skywalker***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsaber
    Saber Throw
    Force Choke
    
    Pro's:
    -Choke/walk up slash combo effective
    -Fast effective combo
    -Dash attack is effective if you activate it early
    -Can easily take on multiple opponents.
    
    Con's:
    -Dash attack can be awkward
    -Force choke is limited to your stamina bar
    -No force lightning to do the Choke/Lightning combo
    
    Overall: 8.5/10
    Arguably the best on the darkside although not the
    Coolest.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Charge straight ino the battle using choke on singular
    Foes and your dash on groups. Play it safe and there should
    Be no reason why you should die.
    
    ***Darth Vader***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsaber
    Saber Throw
    Force Choke
    
    Pro's:
    -Dash attack has a wide ark.
    -Good combo
    -Choke/slash combo again effective
    -The 'float' jump is better than 4 jumps in some cases.
    
    Con's:
    -Slow paced
    -Again no Force Lightning but this time because
     of metal arms.
    
    Overall: 8/10
    Anakin with slow movement basically.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Play like you would Anakin but this time your
    Dash is just as effective on single foes. Your speed
    Is your only concern so dash as much as possible.
    
    ***Obi Wan Kenobi***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsaber
    Force Push
    Saber Throw
    
    Pro's:
    -Effective combo
    -Anti-air attack
    
    Con's:
    -Difficult dash attack
    Plain Force powers
    
    Overall: 7.5/10
    Too much reliance on his push and throw
    Let Obi Wan down.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use Force Push to knock people of
    Platforms or stages for easy kills. Charge into 
    Groups with your dash attack.
    
    ***Mace Windu***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsaber
    Force Push
    Saber Throw
    
    Pro's:
    -Fast, Effective combo
    -Special jump and R trigger attack
     is good for attacking vehicles on top.
    -Long range saber throw
    
    Con's:
    -Dash attack is awful
    -Plain Force powers
    
    Overall: 8/10
    Just a little bit better than Luke
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use your dash attack to pound away at enemy
    Groups and vehicles as your chance to hit anything
    Is increased. Like you should with Aayla Pull groups
    Of enemies towards you and then attack then with a combo.
    
    ***Yoda***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsaber
    Force Pull
    Force Push
    
    Pro's:
    -Invincible in water
    -small and hard to hit
    -Pull has long range
    -5 jumps
    
    Con's:
    -awkward to use combo
    -No projectile attacks
    -Combo isn't very damaging
    
    Overall: 6/10
    Good but not great
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use your push to knock enemies of stages
    Or platforms and use Pull on enemies hero to
    Get him/her closer as so you can go for
    The kill.
    
    ***Ki-Adi-Mundi***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsaber
    Saber Throw
    Force Pull
    
    Pro's:
    -Good combo like Luke
    -Pull has long range
    -Dash attack amazing against vehicles
    
    Con's:
    -Plain Force Powers
    Dash attack useless against single enemy units
    
    Overall: 8/10
    Good but dash attack on troops lets him down
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use your dash attack to pound away at enemy vehicles
    As it is most effective. Like with Aayla pull groups of enemies
    Towards you and unleash your combo on them.
    
    ***Luke Skywalker***
    
    Equipment:
    Lightsaber
    Saber Throw
    Force Push
    
    Pro's:
    -Fast Lightsaber combo
    -Push/saber throw combo deadly
    
    Con's:
    -Plain Force powers
    -Third dash attack hit unlikely to connect
    
    Overall: 7.5/10
    Again Good but not great
    
    TIPS:
    
    Luke's combo is great for on the go action
    So use it effectively in groups of enemies to
    Rack up the kills. Use the Push/Saber throw
    Combo to tacke distance enemies.
    
    ***Han Solo***
    
    Equipment:
    DL44 Blaster
    Fusion Cutter
    Detpack
    Rally (Defense Increase)
    
    Pro's:
    -Amazing blaster
    -Detpacks are good like for traps and
     clearing out vehicles
    -Fusion Cutters make you the best hacker around
    -Rally great in large fire fights.
    -Infinate ammo for Blaster and takes ages
     to overheat.
    
    Con's
    -Fusion cutters near useless on non
     vehicle maps
    -Long time to wait if gun overheats
    -Rally useless with no team mates nearby
    
    Overall: 7/10
    Best blaster character for the Lightside
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use detpacks on turrets on Kamino and
    Vehicle's on Utapau. Also aim for the head
    At all times.
    
    ***Chewbacca***
    
    Equipment:
    Bowcaster
    Guided Rocket
    Timebomb
    Rage
    
    Pro's:
    -Lot's of health

    -Guided missile useful on tanks
    -Rage good in groups
    
    Con's:
    -Ammo goes fast
    -Timebombs only useful for vehicles
    -Not very fast
    
    Overall: 7/10
    Not bad but not great either
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use your guided missiles from far away and
    Use the boost for maximum damage. Snipe
    On grouped enemies with the Bowcaster from
    Afar.
    
    ***Princess Leia***
    
    Equipment:
    Sporting Blaster
    Invurnerability
    Thermal Detonators
    
    Pro's:
    -Accurate weapon
    -Invurnerability in large groups is killer
    -Thermal Detonators good for clearing out groups.
    -x2 zoom
    
    Con's:
    -4 shots and your gun overheats
    -No alternate weapon.
    
    Overall: 4/10
    Just bad
    
    TIP:
    
    Snipe if you want but you may miss as the gun is 
    Too accurate and overheats quick. Aim for the head
    At all costs.
    
    ***Aayla Secura***
    
    Equipment:
    Double Lightsabers
    Saber Throw
    Force Pull
    
    Pro's:
    -Good combo for groups
    -Pull can be used at great distances
    -Good dash attack
    
    Con's:
    -Combo poor for one on one
    -Plain Force powers.
    
    Overall: 8/10
    As good as Mace
    
    TIPS:
    
    Use pull to get large groups of
    Enemies towards you then use your combo
    To whipe them all out.
    
    *********************************
       *** HUNT SPECIFIC UNITS ***
    *********************************
    
    These are the Hunt Exclusive Units within the game.
    The objective of Hunt is the Hunting team attempts
    to eliminate the entire hunted team within the time
    limit. If the Hunted team survies until the end of
    the match they are victorious.
    
    ***GUNGANS***
    
    Equipment:
    Fusion Cutter
    Thermal Detonators
    
    Pro's:
    -20 Thermal Detonators
    -Throw very far
    
    Con's:
    -No actual weapon
    -No EMP grenades like BF1
    -Too much reliance on turret building and using them.
    -No special attributes
    
    Overall: 3/10
    
    The amount of grenades you carry and how far the
    Gungans throw them get's them this grade.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Build turrets and use them to blast the CIS apart.
    Failing that throw grenades everywhere, especially
    were they spawn.
    
    ***GEONOSIAN***
    
    Equipment:
    Sonic Blaster
    
    Pro's:
    
    -Can fly far large amounts of time.
    -Powerful and accurate weapons.
    -Easy to get headshots with.
    -Splash damage
    
    Con's:
    
    -Slow dash and normal run speed.
    -No alternate weapon.
    -Physicaly weak with hardly any health.
    -Small splash damage
    -Flight takes awhile to recharge fully.
    
    Overall: 5/10
    
    Slow dash and slow run speeds make them a below
    average character but their ability to fly out
    balances this and their low health is balanced by
    a good weapon.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Your opponets are Snipers so keep moving inwards
    for the kill and fly to close the gap between you
    and the opponent. The sonic gun is very accurate
    so aim for the head on idle or still enemies.
    
    ***WOOKIEES***
    
    Equipment:
    
    Wookiee 1:
    
    Bowcaster
    Fusion Cutter
    
    Wookiee 2:
    
    Bowcaster
    Thermal Detonators
    
    Pro's:
    
    -Good amount of health
    -Bowcaster is accurate with spread damage
    -Charge shot is fast and powerful
    -Can fix turrets with Fusion Cutters
    -2x scope with the Bowcaster
    
    Con's:
    
    -Ammo depletes fast
    -Not all blaster bolts will hit
    -Wookiee 1's alternate weapon is near useless.
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    One of the best hunt units by far. The rate
    your bowcaster ammo goes just let's it down
    as it means you having to keep going to the
    ammo droid or scavenge for pickups.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Take out the Magna guards operating Recon
    droids as they are left wide open. Also
    use your scope to your advantage and pick
    off groups huddled together in the distance.
    
    ***TUSKEN***
    
    Equipment:
    
    Tusken Raider:

    -Decent reload time
    
    Con's:

    Overall: 8/10
    
    HUNTER:
    
    Pro's:
    -Good dash speed
    -Very accurate
    -Unlimited sniper ammo
    -Fairly easy to use without having
    to snipe.
    
    Con's:
    -Slow rate of fire
    -Only x1 scope
    -No alternate weapon
    
    Overall: 6/10
    
    Your choice. If you like to snipe go
    with the Hunter, stick with the Raider
    for anything else however.
    
    TIPS:
    
    If your sniper use the huge walls located
    near the crashed ship to get the best vantage
    point of the map.
    
    ***JAWA***
    
    Equipment:
    Ionization Blaster
    Fusion Cutters
    
    Pro's:
    -Blaster is powerful. Takes a third of the 
     enemies health.
    -Stuns target when they get hit.
    -Small=harder to hit
    
    Con's:
    -Very slow when dashing
    -Doesn't jump that high
    -Secondary weapon near useless
    
    Overall: 8/10
    
    Very good weapon that stuns targets as
    well as deals heavy damage is a winning
    combo.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Stay out of open areas as snipers can pick
    ypu off. Also use small spaces to launch 
    sneak attacks.
    
    ***EWOKS***
    
    Equipment:
    Tribal Spear
    Sharp Rocks
    
    Pro's:
    -Far throwing ability
    -Small and hard to hit
    -Camoflauged by trees/grass
    -Almost instant kill spears
    
    Con's:
    -Terrible dash
    -Rocks can be hard to use and hit enemies with
    
    Overall: 7/10
    
    Almost instant kill spears and rocks that lead to a
    follow up attack are all useful. Size helps alot also
    and gives you that little bit of an edge. These things 
    counter balance the bad dash and at times bad accuracy
    of spears.
    
    TIP:
    
    Don't bother with dashing and save your stamina for
    rolling out of blaster fire. Throw rocks at Storm
    Troopers then follow up with a spear to insure that
    kill.
    
    ***WAMPA***
    
    Equipment:
    Claw
    
    Pro's:
    -Lots of health
    -Basically a jedi without force powers etc.
    
    Con's:
    -No wepons or anything else
    -Big target
    
    0verall: 9/10
    
    By far the best  Hunt unit in the game with
    power, speed and durability.
    
    TIPS:
    
    Take out the Rebels auto gun turrets to help
    keep you alive for a little longer and take out
    Wookiees and Bothan Spies as these will give 
    yuo the most trouble. Also the Wampa has an
    attack similar to Mace Windu's if you jump and
    attack.
    
    
    From: Linc_101
    
    If you're Wampas (hunt on Hoth) their jump attack move is very
    powerful and can kill multiple rebels at the same time. They also 
    have a OHK attack, or as I like to call it, the "Hug" attack, which
    can be done with the pull of the Left Trigger (Though there is a one second
    delay time to "charge up" the attack, so press the trigger a bit early).
