In this Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Han Solo Guide, we have useful tips and tricks that you could need to dominate with Han Solo in the new Star Wars.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Han Solo Guide

Han Solo is probably one of the most dangerous heroes in the game. The DL-44 is very important, as it is able to duel with any Lightsaber in the game. It has a decent amount of damage and is one of the most accurate and fastest firing blasters in the game. It can take around 2 shots to destroy a normal target and 3 shots to a heavy.

Han Solo’s first ability is the Sharpshooter, which increases the fire rate of your barrel. This is good for close quarter battle as you can rapidly fire a succession of shots into the enemies. It lasts four seconds and has a quick cooldown so you can use it as often as you feel like it.

His second ability is the Detonite Charge, which is a sticky explosive. It will exist until they are either destroyed or detonated by you. They can be used on both choke points or just thrown blindly to net you a kill or two. The cooldown is 30 seconds.

Your final ability is the Shoulder Charge, which makes Han charge and knock up the first enemy that you hit. The target will also be damaged.

This has a cooldown of 10 seconds and is best for knocking out heroes or 1v1 situations. You have 600HP so you can use Han to charge in a couple of times before you die. Try not to use it to charge enemies, use Detonite Charges instead to deal AoE damage.

Han Solo is best used for covering fire and peeling the frontline rather than charging in. For his Star Cards, use Heavily Modified Blaster for less reload times.

Apart from this, use Sharpshooter’s Calm to fire more shots and Sharpshooting Frenzy to ensure that you can reduce the ability’s cooldown with every kill that you acquire using the Sharpshooter ability. This build will allow you to ensure that you do not stop shooting and keep on firing through the course of the battle.
