   *** 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.

From: hippydude0

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

Equipment:
Lightsaber
Force Push
Saber Throw

Pro's:
-Effective combo

Equipment:
Lightsaber
Force Push

Pro's:
-Invincible in water
-small and hard to hit

Con's:
-awkward to use combo

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

***Luke Skywalker***

Equipment:
Lightsaber
Saber Throw
Force Push

Pro's:
-Fast Lightsaber combo

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.

Sporting Blaster
Invurnerability
Thermal Detonators

*********************************
   *** 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:

Tusken Cycler

Tusken Hunter:

Bolt Action Rifle

RAIDER:

Pro's:
-Accurate weapon
-Decent firepower
-Above average rate of fire
-Decent reload time

Con's:
-No alternate weapon

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).
