5 Crazy Hunt Mode Ideas That Just Might Surpise You

I never ask myself what's possible until after I've done it. But when it comes to Hunt Mode, the sky's the limit...within reason, of course. In that spirit, here are five more Hunt Mode variations (bringing the total to 11) that would be incredible additions to the mode... And there's a good chance that at least a couple of these end up in your Hunt Mode rotation when it's all said and done, but again, when it comes to the future... Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.


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.

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.

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.

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.
