I don’t understand Hans shoulder charge

Can someone explain to me how it works sometimes in HvV I use it and send a hero flying and other times I just tickle them and other times I knock them down it makes no sense I can’t find a pattern it’s like it’s just luck sometimes

    Activate get to hero, hit again and they go.

  • It's inconsistent but is supposed to hit heroes and knock them back. It's also supposed to give up to a 40% damage reduction but I'm not so sure it is.
  • i think its one of the most useless Hero abilities in the game

    i'll LOL each time a Han Solo tries to shoulder charge me especially when i'm Vader

    :D

    I have knocked Vader off his feet but it usually doesn’t happen. I think it’s tied to block but I’m not sure.

    Seems like it works against troopers, but not so much against heroes.
  • It's useful with the damage reduction star card to either retreat from gunfire or to advance on a hiding Bossk.

  • No amount of skill can help you do good with Han in GA. 3 LS heroes have HoK, 2 of them don't but have team-buff. Won't go into it much, that's a topic for another thread.

    I would only pick Han if I had 20,000BP+ to spare and just wanted to have fun.

    This ability is only useful to run away when you’re disadvantaged, in order to preserve Han’s fragile health pool.

    I used it to kill Kylo once. It felt like payback for TFA. Loved it.

    I hope you know it does more than let Rey see through walls.
    Everything is proceeding as I have forseen.

    Even if it was all the ability could do it's a tide-changer for Rey's teammates in Galactic assault.

    For me Han's shoulder charge needs to be changed on 2 ways. Run should be faster so others can't just dodge and saber strike. It also needs to be consistent/clearer on what will damage Vs knocking someone over.

    I get an occasional shoulder kill in HvV but it is really rare, not much use for it at all really.

    I still remember in the campaign when I used it and I was used to his shoulder charge in the last game and I laughed so hard when he just kept going and going when all I wanted was to do a quick run to cover.

    His shoulder charge in the last game was soooooo good. First time I ever used him I got 3 times where I killed 5+ with the shoulder charge. Each time 5+!!

    Skip to 30 seconds and see. They should bring this back lol.

    I read somewhere that the distance push is related to the distance you advance while running. So if you hit someone next to them the push will be closer than if you were running and hit someone.
    May your heart be your guiding key.
  • I use it to run around the map faster..got some HvV kills with it but that is more by luck than skill..

    Occasionally you can send people absolutely flying (heroes mainly). I think if you get a glancing blow first, then hit them again full on they get launched. But it is a bit 50/50 whether it works or not.

  • Use shoulder charge you run through people knocking them over with a full on hit or to the side with a glance, press it again Han will bump forwards knocking back whomever is Infront of him.

    I struggle to use Han. lando is much eaiser
  • In all the times I've used Han, I've used that ability successfully exactly once. Got a double-kill on Hoth with it in GA. Got surprised by 2 troopers at the end of a hallway. There was no way out but forward.

    Other than that, I use it to run away when I'm in trouble. It's far more dangerous than useful offensively.

    I imagine you could only use it like he did in the movies. when you are in a hallway and no where to go but forward, shoulder charge through them and hope you dont die.

    I wish they would replace it with his lucky shot from the last game.

    any mode. I thought there was something on here already in the forums about guide for all heroes it might be included in.
  • Works most of the time, I'm actually not sure about this though since I only use it for escape.

    It's useful in HvV to finish off a low health player or flank and knock down Vader or Kylo when they're button mashing teammates. The problem is that it's inconsistent. I'll hit it and after Han runs for three steps he stops running or he hits the enemy and it doesn't knock them back whuhc leaves you very vulnerable.

    Chewy’s and especially Han’s charge are very awkward.

    I main Han in HvV. I use shoulder charge to get to the fight quicker.
    Also, when I'm drunk and playing with friends, I'll just lurk until someone is almost dead and try to finish them with a shoulder charge. :D
  • I still find the charge to be buggy as hell - just as you lot said above, sometimes it just stops early, sometimes it doesn't actually trigger, sometimes it just doesn't knock someone back, sometimes it literally just ignore enemies and does nothing, leaving me either running through them, or running (and continuing to run) into them....yeah, I kinda expected better over a year into the game. Guess it's too much to expect for a studio managed by EA.
  • It knocks players down when you charge a certain distance. If you start the charge too close, it will only do damage.

    It's not as inconsistent as y'all think when you realize that lol.

  • Use it on opponents who land close to you after you have detonite charged them. Like force push abilities, you can damage opponents who have been knocked to the ground with it while they are still on the ground, and knock them down again. It's a free hit.

    Other than that I use it to troll block boys and also as a speed boost and jump just before the animation ends.

    eh.. say this to the devs. Then sometimes don't work at all even against infantry, i hit them and they just stay there shooting at me. useless ability

    yes... if it work. Severals times i hit the target but it don't fly away
  • Tbh I only use it for running away. The other two abilities and his blaster overall are awesome. Han is one of my main hero's
  • the sweet combo is to hit them with shoulder charge after a detonite charge. shoulder charge while they're still on the ground and it hits pretty consistently
    PSN: computerson
  • I can provide a guide, since Han is one of my mains.

    What to Do

    1) spam dodge roll, 2 times, then malee hit 2. That gives enough time to roll again to fully recharge . Rise and repeat. Works to dacimate plasma, iden, Grevious, and Vader. If they block charge them with shoulder, then reclick to stumble. Enter the dodge dodge, V until they die. Should take 8 punches + charge.

    2) Dodge forwards always, due to broken saber tracking enemy will begin to spin and allow you to pound V on their rear back till they die.

    3) If maul, or Kylo, Vader begin to move hands throw bomb and air detonate, it will cause them to loose their sabers perma if they choke.

    4) If they spam block unload spam skill on them they will have no stamina. Then throw bomb air detonate. Then 1)


    What not to do

    1)never run as Han, he is slow and can’t do for running away
    2) don’t spam Hans pistol. Unless it’s infantry it’s useless.
    3) don’t ever stand still, do to bugs enemy can’t lock on if you hide just slightly behind an object but allow to pop your head just out. (Blocks all projectiles including push and won’t let anyone charge you)

    Use this you will never die. Have fun
  • Trash ability, don't use it. Frankly his sharpshooter frenzy is bad as well. Chuck Grenades and be accurate is essentially what his play style boils down too. It's lame and kinda boring.

    Shoulder charge should be like Greivious's claw rush, not breaking immediately on the first hit and always knocking his targets down. In its current state using it offensively in GA and HvV alike is a near death sentence.

    I think it sends heroes flying if they’re blaster heroes or if they’re lightsaber heroes that are not blocking. I usually use it when heroes are right in front of me or to run to safety.

    I've used it on saber heroes and it sends them flying too. Usually when I shoulder charge them right in the spine is when the go soaring. I hope they don't do anything to it. It's quite a humorous sight to see. This one time I shoulder charged a Death Trooper in the spine on GA Tatooine and he went flying right into the wall. It was awesome.

    You have to be far enough to knock someone down.

    I think this is basically correct. To get the big version of the hit, you have to be a little further away and they can’t be blocking.

    If you are close the them it is more like a stagger.

    I think it is quite effective once you get the hang of it.
