Battlefront is a great game, but everyone agrees it could use more content. More stuff is being added via paid DLC soon, but since I’m kind of obsessed with Star Wars gadgets, I thought I’d say what I’d like to see added. Might as well use this knowledge for something…
I’d like to get a little obscure with my picks here, since the main characters that everyone expects (Bossk, Chewbacca, Yoda) are a bit boring. Let’s go with the yellow wonder, the fake ass bounty hunter Boushh. This would be a great addition. No one has really explored the character outside of the comics so you could get a little original with their abilities. Obviously, thermal detonators would be involved, maybe some additional HUD stuff through that cool visor, and a powerful melee weapon using Boushh’s pike. Important note! Seeing as this is all set in the time of the Original Trilogy, it should be Leia in costume, rather than actual Boushh (whoever they are).
The undefeated AT-AT Commander himself. I picked him for the cool hat, and to balance out the Imperials against all the bounty hunters they’ve got currently. He would have excellent armor, long range and short range weapons and something revolving around military tactics that would be useful. I don’t know what. If I did, I’d be working at DICE.
Some new character models unlocked at Level 70 would be cool. For the Rebels, the Mon Calamari as seen on the bridge of Home One would be perfect. They’re clearly the backbone of the Rebel fleet, and are excellent pilots and tacticians, so unlocking this infantry should give you some sort of buff when you’re playing Fighter Squadron.
TIE Fighter Pilot
How is this not in the game already? They not only look badass, but they’d blend in similar to a Shadow Trooper, but with more hoses and equipment and shit. Again, they would give you some sort of advantage in Fighter Squadron.
GRS-1 snare rifle
4-LOM’s super weird-looking double-barrelled gun. This this doesn’t fire bullets, it fires a paralyzing spray that immobilizes targets. Imagine if you could use it to stun enemies and then switch to another weapon and take them out. Would be frustrating for the other person, but who cares about that. It’s Star Wars, not Star Picnic.
There are various force pikes in Star Wars, but I’m going with the classic Emperor’s Royal Guard ones. There is absolutely no defense for a regular player against either Luke or Vader, so this would be a way to block their lightsaber attacks. Maybe it could let you survive long enough to jetpack away. I like that idea.
This is an elegant sporting blaster that Leia used on Endor. Very light, but surprisingly powerful. It blasted away a stormtrooper in one shot in Return of the Jedi. Maybe it can be exceptionally good at short range, and still accurate (but weaker) at long range.
Another blaster, used by the guards on Cloud City. I’m thinking this could be a good alternative to the E-11, but a little fast firing. And it’s silver, that’s got to count for something.
I love this ship. I would geek out if I got to fly this around. It should be a tank – not so agile, but delivers huge damage.
This is an obvious choice. Again, I think this would be tank-like; slower but dealing lots of damage, with bombs instead of missiles. Would be excellent for strafing runs.
That’s all I got, but not bad for an afternoon’s work. I’m going to check back and see if I get any of these right. Fingers crossed for the B-Wing.
