5 Ways Hunt Mode Can Expand By Season 3

There are some obvious ways to expand the Hunt mode. Some of these we'll see sooner rather than later. By the time Season 3 rolls around, there is a very real possibility that you'll see at least a few—if not all of these—enter the rotation. Most of these additions will make good use of "recycled" SWBF2015 maps. Here are 5 Hunt Mode Variants that we could/will/should see in the near future. Take this however you like...but I got a good feeling about this.

WAMPA HUNT
Map—Twilight on Hoth
Scenario—Left behind at Echo Base after the evacuation, your squad must survive one last day on frigid Hoth before the U-Wing comes back to evacuate you. Blizzard conditions. Near zero visibility. Increasing number of Wampas hunting you. All you have is your standard issue blaster, a short burst infrared "flashlight," and your wits.

JAWA HUNT
Map—Jawa Refuge (SWBF2015)
Scenario: An Imperial outpost on Tatooine is too close to comfort for a clan of Jawas, and before the stormtroopers stationed there can wipe out their camp, they've decided to take matters into their own hands. When not falls, they pull out their shock blasters and go after the stormtroopers. Stormtroopers try to defend their outpost. Jawas, Eyes glowing. Sporting Shock Blasters, trying to force stormtroopers off of their desert plant of Tatooine. Armed with E-11s and flashlights, stormtroopers will have their hands full. Uuteenee!!!!

GEONOSIAN HUNT
Map—Season 3 (Geonosis is rumored...but it's happening, trust me. You'll get a good look at it, soon.)
Scenario: A squad of clones has been left behind to hold a Republic outpost following the Battle of Geonosis. But the native are restLess. Cut off from the rest of their forces, the clones must survive the darkness of the catacombs until help arrives.

WOOKIE HUNT
Map—Kassyyykk
Scenario: Battle droids invading the Wookie home planet have underestimated the Wookies. In the dense early morning mist on Kassyyykk, a squad of battle droids are on a mission to eradicate the wookies, armed with their infrared flashlights and standard issue blasters. But they are quickly overrun, and have to deal with a planet full of angry Wookies before their transport can arrive and take them to safety.

TUSKEN RAIDER HUNT
Map—Raider Camp (SWBF2015)
Scenario: A small Rebel platoon on Patrol have gotten lost in a Tatooine sandstorm and wandered into a Tusken Raider Camp. But the winds are whipping up, the sand is blowing, and visibility is near zero. When the first cries of of the sand people echo through the canyons, the Rebels reach for their infrared binocs...and hope to survive the night.

    Glad you like them. Those are the "most likely" options. Hunt has so much great potential and should be the only "weird" game mode Battlefront gets.
  • @XXXO77O4906, could you pass these ideas along? Because they are really good

    Noice. Hopefully they add it as just a full mode, rather than separate ones, and these are all good concepts for formats of the mode. Only problem I'd have is with the Wampa one - I can't see the Rebels lasting that long unless the Wampas were made almost ridiculously weak. Maybe the Wampas don't regen naturally and have HoK? And I guess the Rebel guns could just do a bit more damage than normal and/or they have Heavy health as opposed to Specialist health like in EH.

  • I can just imagine the horrible moment of seeing those glowing, yellow Jawa eyes in the dark. That would be so freaky.

    So glad that Ben and the Boys are taking notice of this. Thank you.
    Since the team is paying attention to this post I’ll include the rest of my HUNT Mode suggestions here:

    1. REBEL HUNT
    Map—Tantive IV (variation/extension of the Blockade Runner from Death Star II GA)
    Scenario: Stormtroopers are boarding the Tantive IV in a search for the Death Star plans. Darth Vader is leading the charge. Rebels soldiers must hold off the Empire long enough for Princess Leia to stow away the plans on R2D2 and jettison the escape pod. The corridors of the Tantive IV are filled with smoke from burning fires and explosions aboard the ship. VADER and two stormtroopers start the charge. As rebels are taken out, the stormtroopers' numbers grow.

    BOUNTY HUNT
    Map—Jabba's Palace/Palace Garage (SWBF2015)
    (Disclaimer: would need more bounty hunters for it to work properly, and this is a slightly different mechanic from the core Ewok Hunt mode).
    Scenario: Jabba has put on bounty on the heads of a squad of rebel soldiers and have lured them to the Palace after planting false information the would be valuable to the Alliance. Four Bounty Hunters have been hired to collect the bounties, but they're on the clock, the Palace has been abandoned, and it's pitch black inside Jabbas palace.
    The Rebels have called for evacuation, but they'll need to survive the night against some of the galaxies most fearsome bounty hunters, before time is up and the U-Wing Shuttle arrives for extraction.

    Mechanics:
    Random Rebels are marked for death with bounties on their heads.
    The Rebels mission is to protect the soldiers marked for death and kill as many bounty hunters as possible.
    When a bounty hunter kills a target the bounty is collected (extra credits).
    Bounty hunters can kill each other. When a bounty hunter is killed he becomes a rebel.
    Winning bounty hunter is awarded extra credits from Jabba endgame.
    Each Bounty Hunter has his own method of seeing in the dark (temporarily).
    Boba Fett, Bossk, Greedo, and Dengar. Yes, Greedo and Dengar would have to be reintroduced. Already, Greedo, Boba, and Bossk have a "night vision" ability. Dengar needs one as well. Side note: a Prequel version should exist as well, too, featuring Jango, Cad Bane, Aurra Sing, and Zam Wessell.
  • 3. RESISTANCE HUNT
    Map—Takodana
    Scenario: (Borrowing a mechanic from Battle Station SWBF2015 with playable R2-D2) Night has descended on Takodana. The First order scouts are searching for the droid holding the map to Luke Skywalker, BB-8. A group of brave resistance fighters are stranded at Maz's castle, they've sent a distress signal to the resistance, but the First Order is coming for the droid. But until they receive word on a shuttle incoming they must protect the droid with their lives. As resistance players are killed, they become FO troopers. All troops are outfitted with flashlights. BB-8 is playable. Resistance defends and escorts BB-8 to extraction.
  • 4. GUNGAN HUNT
    Map—Naboo (Theed)
    Scenario: battle droids have been sent to Naboo, but they've encountered more resistance than they expected. GUNGAN warriors have come to the aid of the Naboo and have stepped up to push back the threat to their home world. Night has fallen and every battle droid is equipped with flashlights and standard Blasters.
  • 5. JEDI HUNT
    Map—Coruscant (Jedi Temple)
    Scenario: Order 66 has come down from the Emperor himself and the clones have been tasked with wiping out the Jedi Order. The newly knighted Darth Vader (Anakin Skywalker himself) has been dispatched by the Emperor to exterminate the Jedi. Jedi are tasked with defending the Temple and the Survival of the order. As Jedi are killed, the clone trooper numbers grow.
    (Disclaimer: "basic" Jedi would need to be created for this mode to work, as would Anakin Skywalker (hooded).
    There's an alternate version of this without Anakin (which may be more likely). Instead, there are simply just clones who are sent to wipe out Jedi. Two clones to start.

    For this i wouldn't say night cs it doesn't make much sense cs the gungans need to see too. I'd keep it dusk and day not night

    Plus there's lights in naboo so maybe night would work but not with flashlights needed really

    I truly hope these come true. Truly wonderful OP. All my HUES
  • In the meantime, I'd personally love to see the Forest Moon of Endor and Swamp Crash Site maps from 2015 added to Ewok Hunt
