Here is everything you need to know about Star Wars Battlefront, including the choice of Star Cards, Blasters, Traits, their costs and Level requirements.
Those who played the Star Wars Battlefront beta will be familiar with the Star Cards system, the traits, and some of the blasters on offer. Here is everything you need to know about these features in the final release, including costs and at what player level they unlock.
In the Star Wars Battlefront beta, Level 5 was the maximum that players could achieve. The full game bumps this bump to Level 50 and changes at what levels you’ll gain access to certain equipment, cards, and so on. For example, in the beta you could get the Jump Pack at Level 5, but you’ll need to hit Level 13.
To find out even more information about these items, such as exactly what they do, their attributes, and so on, log into the Star Wars Battlefront website and check out the career part of your account.
Star Cards are the additional gadgets that you’ll have access to as matches play out. Beta players will be familiar with some of the options, but it’s worth noting that you’ll need to get to Level 13 tp get the Jump Pack and Level 28 to get the Cycler Rifle to snipe at people in the full game. The highest ranked Star Card is the Wookie Bowcaster, which you can buy and equip at Level 32.
Charged Star Cards:
Players only had one slot for a Charged Star Card in the beta, so had to choose wisely based on the game mode or side they were playing. The Ion Shot, which was essential for Rebel Soldiers in the Walker Assault mode, unlocks at Level 7, while the Personal Shield will take the longest to unlock.
The Sharpshooter trait will be familiar to those who played the beta; it is triggered by headshots and reduces cooldown times. You’ll have to wait until Level 26 to benefit from it in the full title. There are some interesting sounding traits, including Scout, which will let you sprint without appearing on scanners, and Bounty Hunter, which gives you a chance of getting a Power-up with each kill.
We haven’t yet seen some of the Power-ups in action, such as the R5-D4 Droid or Viper Probe who sounds quite capable. These will patrol the vicinity, scan for enemies, and attacks them on sight. There’s also the Card Refresh, which resets the cooldown on all of your cards.
Here are all of the weapons that you’ll get your hands on in Star Wars Battlefront along with how much they cost to purchase and when you’ll be able to buy them. The DL-44, which unlocks at Level 50, delivers “massive damage” at close range, but you won’t be able to spray fire as it overheats quickly.
For the most part, you’ll be playing as a generic human or Stormtrooper. But at higher ranks, you’ll have the option to publicly display that you’re a better, or at least more experienced, player than most. On the Rebel side, you’ll have the option of being a Twi'lek and Quarren, for example, while the Empire get to be Scout or Shadow Troopers.
