Changing Skins Between Matches. It Just Has to Happen.

As the title suggests, in my opinion, being able to change your skin in between matches is a feature that must be implemented. It may seem trivial to some, but why shell out these credits and/or cash for skins that you can’t even use on their appropriate maps?

If I purchase a Hoth Han, I would like to be able to use him on, you know, Hoth? I’m a skin fanatic. I was in Battlefront 2015 and I most definitely am in this game, but not being able to change your skin pre-match is pretty absurd. Nobody should have to leave their lobby to equip a skin. I get all excited when Endor comes up in the rotation so I can finally use my 40K Endor Leia skin, only to spawn in as HOTH Leia. Do you know how humid it is on Endor in May?

I’m loving this communication from F8RGE, I’m looking forward to hearing about the remainder of the Season 2 content, but I feel strongly that this is a detail that should not be overlooked. In my opinion, it should have been worked on and added before being able to use skill points in between matches.

With skins now being the main source of income for Battlefront 2, I think it’s important that this feature be added as soon as possible. It’ll be a lot easier to justify skin purchases knowing we’ll be able to use them as they were intended.

Also, how hawt is that Boushh skin? Just phenomenal.

    So I guess suffering through the jetpack cargo part of the Hoth Leia skin challenge was for nothing then.

  • Hey, my game changes my skin even during a match.
    First spawn I'm a Rebel Human, second and third spawn for reasons unknown I'm a Nikto Rebel.
    Fourth spawn I'm human again and in the post-match leader screen I'm a Sullustan.

    How do you obtain this glitch?

  • Yes, this needs to happen. If I play a session of HvV, I want to use certain skins for certain maps, both for continuity or to blend in with the map. I don't want to use Leia's Hoth skin on Endor.

    Huge quality of life improvement! With the promotion of skins this is a must. Also we simply need more skins.

    A most needed feature. I don’t know how they can NOT have it if they expect people to grind and pay for skins. Some just look ridiculously out of place on certain maps.

    Improve immersion, this game needs as much of it as it can get.

  • I hope this also allows player 2 in split screen Arcade to choose their own skin.
    I am the same user as Elimelech401, that account was not tied to the game. I am hoping for more Skirmish with split screen and hero AI.

    It would be great because you could select costumes that blend in better on certain maps!

  • Actually May in Endor would be quite nice and not so humid. Lol.

    I do agree though, I don’t like not being able to use skins in their appropriate climate/setting. That’s why even though I have the skins I stick to the default mostly.

    Too hot for Hoth attire!

    Same deal over here. I’ve got all my hero skins set to something neutral. Somebody over on Reddit proposed having a menu that you can pre-select which hero skins you’d like to use on each map. So you’d automatically spawn in as these when that map pops up in the rotation. I think this is a near perfect solution.

    This is the answer
  • @F8RGE

    Hate tagging Devs, but everybody else seems to. Thoughts on a pre-selection screen for hero skins? Spawn into Endor as Han. BOOM! Automatic Endor Han skin. Or whichever skin they’ve selected for that map. If could be Hoth Han, if that’s what they’ve got pre-selected.

    Maybe worth passing along to some of the Devs. This could be the answer :#

    Yes, This needs to be added soon. I don't want to run around Hoth in Endor gear and vice versa. I want to choose my skin within in the spawn screen.

    I don't know.

    I unlocked all three Rebel Assault appearances.
    I used Rebel Human 2 for a few matches and switched back to Rebel Human 1.
    Assault class.
    I've never actually equipped the Nikto skin as far as I remember.

    I'm on PS4 and I only play Strike if that's relevant.
    Don't know the number of my Victory pose but it sometimes shows me as a Sullustan Assault trooper.

    I don't think that there is an actual pattern behind it.
    It seems quite arbitrarily happening.

    The Sullustan wants so badly to take part in Battlefront 2. Set him free. Let him fight.

    Sad Sullustan :(

    Aw, those creepy, soulless, black eyes are so cute.

    Sullustans would be great but they would be missing their leader.

    Good.
    I need to get into my bright orange X-wing pilot skin from SWBF I as I also like to blend in.

    I hope we can get this skin for those matches on SKB.
