Which end do you shoot with?

Just want to see if there are fellow gamers having the same issue..... I consider myself a good player on SWBF2, level 70 Specialist and Officer, regular number 1 for my team (And I don’t use cards that boost points). I am even convinced that I could take on the empire all by myself.....Do you know that feeling?

However, every now and then I think, “Hey Squishy, let’s mix this up...”, and that is when the fun begins...and the wife stops talking to me for swearing at the tv.

Even with a good aim and headshot hunting, here are my ‘How can I not get a [email protected]&!ing kill with this gun, when me and ten others have just been taken out by it by a trooper on a rampage” top three:

1. Vanguard....I know! But I cannot kill with it, I get one shot killed all the time. When it my turn, the other guy could sit down for a picnic before having to worry about me doing any damage.

2. EL-16HFE the recoil (even with the reduction) stops me from hitting the underside of a star destroyer.

3. S-5 now I have killed lots.....but these are opportunistic kills...the trooper was half out of his armour trying to take a dump kills....usually it would do more damage if a threw it at them.

Anyone else getting these issues? :)

    I'm really bad with the Vanguard. I don't like how the aim sensitivity changes. And the thing is I know gaming well enough to know how to better utilize it , trying to take Aim more out of the picture , it's just not my style.

    My thing with Vanguard is that I have to be in 1st person. I can’t hit anything with Vanguard in 3rd person for some reason
  • Ironically, I prefer those things you listed. I guess I'll try to give some tips.
    -For Vanguard, aim for the body. And if you miss, be sure to have some cover or something near by to hide behind in between shots. I like to ADS occasionally to make sure my shots land, but that's just me. If all else fails, use it as an enhanced sprint.
    -my baby EL-16HFE is a monster with headshots. You don't want got go into CQC unless you know you can get 2 headshots back to back. It's better as a mid range weapon and great for counter sniping. I run with the increased range and the lessened recoil, but if you want to snipe, go with the range and zoom.
    -same as the EL-16HFE, the S-5 is great with headshots. However, it has less range and a slower rate of fire (I believe, I hardly play officer). I dont have much for you on that one.

    Hope this helped.
    We need a Tier System for the Heroes. It would justify the "op-ness" of Vader over Han and Chewbacca. It would cost much more to unlock Vader, and would require you to save a lot more than for other heroes and vehicles, but it would be rewarding in the end...

  • I miss 80% of my Vanguard shots. It’s become a bit of a complex :D

  • Vanguard, you have to be really close. Like really close. As in under 5 meters for it to be accurate.
  • @SquishyVader completely agree with you have the same issues on those weapons. I've been grinding with the El-16 as well to unlock the attachments, others seem to do well, but I struggle to win gunfights with it that I will typically win with the A280 or CR2.

    I've had better luck one shot kills with slug vanguard, otherwise I'll rarely manage the one shot, it is comical. Good post.

    I use slug.

  • I agree about vanguard, that frickin thing infuriates me. It's completely and utterly inconsistent for me! And no, I'm lag free. It seems to do just whatever it wants even when I hit the same spot each time.

    I'm going to try it in first person like someone else mentioned.

    Slug is even worse... the spray of vanguard helps with my inaccuracies using it at least..I don’t like vanguard because of it... only use it to sprint places, and it is fun chasing unaware enemies from behind with it

    Me & @Jett_Fett_91166 are expert marksmen. Normal stormtroopers only hit 25%of their shots while we hit 32%.

  • I'm a very good storm trooper. I will certainly start to hit the target as soon as the weapon overheats.

    That's interesting, I will have to give that a try

    Same. I can headshot players from across the map with my blaster, but can't shoot a wounded trooper in the back with vanguard.

    Try using Slug Vanguard from a distance. It's not good in normal Vanguard range, but you can take down mid-range targets better than the CR-2. Might be a good loadout actually. I've even seen a player get a cross-map snipe on Hoth with it - obviously pretty difficult to pull off as there isn't a scope, but it is do-able.
    Idk if you've got the Stock Mod for the EL16HFE. It makes the gun much easier to use. Just aim for the upper body/head at mid range, press and hold the trigger and Ouse got yourself a kill. It's lethally accurate, use the Reduced Redoil and Improved Range on it and you can deal serious damage at good range.
    S-5 is a bit of a hand cannon - powerful, hard hitting, but kinda slow firing and clunky as well. You want the reduced recoil if trying to use it outside of about 20 metres ranges. Aim for the torso if they're moving, head if they're standing still, and just pull the trigger as quickly as possible until they move or are dead. It's probably the most difficult pistol to use but is very stiffing to kill with.
    Oh, and speaking of changing weapons - have you ever tried doing the challenge of using whatever weapon someone kills you with when you next respawn? Basically means that you're often changing classes and weapons, makes you try using other guns to what you're used to. Alternatively getting a random number generator up, setting it with range from 1 to 4, then every time you die you activate it twice. The first number determines class (1 being Assualt, 4 being Specialist), second determines gun. Can lead to some... Interesting loadouts, especially in Blast. Good challenge, and again makes you try to use weapons you don't normally use.

  • I cant hit anything with Vanguard :D At all. I think its just a personal flaw though :P

    When I came to do the assault vanguard challenge/Not All Miss trophy I just activated vanguard, then launched an improved thermal detonator into a choke point five times. Totally worked.

    Strangely, I can 100% use vanguard in arcade. Just not mp

    Yeah, it's kind of awkward to use sometimes. Judging the range of it can be difficult, although on console I find that as long as you're in range, if you're aiming more or less at them and tap aim in before you fire you'll get a solid hit on them which you can either follow up with another shot or a quick punch if they still don't go down (aim in because aim assist).

    Sometimes I can't aim with Han's DL-44

    Sometimes I'm sniping people across the map, other times I can't hit the broadside of a barn

    I agree with Vanguard and El-16 aswell. Yesterday, I used Vanguard, shot someone they had 2HP! And they killed me..
