You can throw your Lightsaber at the enemies horizontally to deal damage as well as choke enemy players as well. You can also choke multiple enemies at the same time.

Chocking multiple enemies do not damage them but it leaves them hanging giving others a good chance to deal some damage.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Lando Guide

Zooming in with the Sniper gives you heat vision allowing you to see the enemies even through the smoke. His Lock On ability locks automatically on an enemy and takes them out without you needing to aim and kill them. Lando also has shock grenades which, when thrown, stun enemies for you to kill them easily using Lock On.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Palpatine Guide

Palpatine requires some tactical consideration during battles and he is not easy to play it. You will need to practice his moves and abilities before you can use them in battles. He can also block enemy attacks. His first ability Chain Lightning sees him firing lightning at his enemies. This moves on the ground on a wide radius chaining multiple kills at the same time.

He can also use Electrocute ability to stun enemies giving others as well you some time to deal some damage to the stunned enemies. You can use Dash movement to get behind enemies quickly. His last ability is Dark Aura. It causes enemies to slow down around Palpatine and deals them damage as well.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Leia Guide

Leia uses a two-round burst blaster pistol, which can also be charged by pressing the zoom button for some time. Charged shots deal more damage to the enemies than a regular round. Charged shots also feature area damage giving you a chance to kill multiple enemies at the same time.

If this overheats quickly, switch to the other weapon and all that build up will be lost immediately. She can also deploy a Squad Shield, which can be used to defend the entire team along with herself and is a great way to land some charged shots on the enemy.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Chewie Guide

Chewie is also a tank and can use his shock grenade to stun enemies and then move in quickly to use his ability slam to deal damage to them. His No Cooldown ability can make Chewie fire his weapon without the worry of letting it cool down.

Iden is equipped with powerful pulse cannon, which can be used for dealing long-range damage to enemies. It features unlimited ammo but needs a charge up time before firing each shot.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Bossk Guide

He is equipped with his Relby Blaster, which now works as a shotgun. If you use the scope, it will turn it into a Sniper Rifle. You can also charge up shots by keeping the button hold for some time. Using the Dioxis Gas Grenade is also effective during battles as the gas can pass through even walls.

He also has a sticky bomb ability, which can be thrown up to three at the same time. Each will have its own radius and they explode when an enemy comes close. Using night vision will allow Bossk to see through walls and plan the next move strategically. You also get a grenade launcher here to deal some serious damage.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Kylo Ren Guide

Kylo Ren attacks with his Crossguard Lightsaber and he can deflect attacks. His first ability is Force Pull using which he can pull enemies towards him to attack them. This works really well against ranged heroes. His second ability is Frenzy. This is a combination of a leap towards enemy followed by a small attack by the Crossguard.

His final ability is Force Freeze. Using this ability freezes the enemies in Kylo’s line of sight. This makes them unable to move for a little time and gives you the opportunity to hit them. Use Frenzy here to make the most out of it.

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Rey Guide

Rey requires some tactical gameplay to win. She uses her Lightsaber to attack as well as for deflection. Her first ability is Dash Attack. Using it, makes Rey run at the enemy and damage them along the way. You can also direct this attack left or right depending on the location of the enemy. You can stop her at any time by pressing the standard attack button. Her second ability is Insights allowing Rey to see the enemies on the map even if they are not on-screen.

This comes in very handy in planning attacks and ambushes. It can be used anywhere depending on the situation. You can use it mid-air or while running as well. Her final ability is called Deep Mind. You must remain stationary for it to work. This confuses the enemies reversing their controls at the same time. This is great for enemy heroes as well as other human players.
