Tusken Raider Hunt
hq9yw0qauy4t.png
Imperial Stormtroopers are atop Dewbacks on the hunt for a group of Jawas who have stolen 2 Imperial droids. They arrive at a Sandcrawler to retrieve them but find all the Jawas have been killed. Multiple deafening howls in the distance are heard, it's the Sand People and they're ready to protect their land
How It Works

Objective
The Imperials need to remove the restraining bolt from their droids who are still inside the walker, then escort them to a landing site where a shuttle will soon be landing. it's the Tusken's job to get these trespassers off their land by any means necessary.

Imperials
Only the Assault and Specialist class will be available. They are locked to their default weapons/abilities

Tusken Raiders
Weapon: Cycler Rifle -
The Tusken's Cycler Rifle is a sniper that has to be manually reloaded after every shot. No overheat is present

Health: 150/No Regen Threshold/Regen kicks in 20% faster than the Assault class

Unique Feature: Tuskens can jump slightly higher and sprint 10% faster than the Assault class

[L1/LB] Cycle Weapon- switch between Gaffi Stick and Rifle, no cooldown and always available. Gaffi stick reaches further than trooper melee, giving them the edge in close quarters attacks.

[L1+R1/LB + RB] Urr Ur Urrrh!- Tusken raiders howl loudly and slightly buff nearby teammates sprint speed and damage dealing by 2%. Ability can be combo’d with other nearby teammates howling with you to a max of 20% or ten Tuskens. Downside: direction of Tuskens show on minimap, but are not directly revealed.

[R1/RB] Spirit of the Shaman- active this ability to temporarily improve your Tuskens senses. Nearest enemy(if applicable) shows as a red dot and allows your Raider to see clearly through sand storms. Your Tusken is temporarily removed from showing on enemy minimap.

We'd like to thank all Battlefront II players that were a part of the New Hope, the team was very excited to bring the spirit of A New Hope into the game... and all the positive feedback around this season made it all worth it, and we're not done yet, we'll continue support of the game past this season, so look foward to the upcoming months where we'll detail the roadmap of our next season that starts soon™

    The most iconic star wars movie of all.

    :love:

    I love the hunt mode idea and all of these iconic skins would be AMAZING.

    Old Ben Kenobi, the first jedi we are ever introduced to, bring the crazy old hermit already!
  • My heart hurts. Love it. This is Star Wars.
    PSN: BucksawBoushh
  • Uhh... Yes, please!
  • AWESOME. Love it.

    There are a couple tiny changes I'd suggest, like Assault and Heavy for the Imperials in the hunt mode (instead of Specialist). But I love it. I'd pay actual earth money for something like this.
  • Would also be a good time to re-introduce the Rebel pilot suit...

    And perhaps this poor guy’s uniform as a Rebel Officer skin:

  • 3 months to bring back DLC from BF2015. LOL NO!! (Except for the skins, I wanna play as Old Kenobi)

    I want fresh stuff!!

    Maybe when the year of the clown ends, they could squeeze some much needed OT content in.

    Had fun coming up with the Tuskens for this one. Great job on the thread and all that went into it @Mastahpeece

  • This is exactly the type of content this game needs right now!

    Maybe after all the clone wars stuff is done we'll see this side explored a bit more.

    We should get ANH season and I don't care if the death star I was in a previous game (PREVIOUS game dammit, not THIS game).

    It's literally the most important movie in the franchise, the most iconic (personally, I like more ESB and maybe ROTJ, but ANH is the most iconic for sure), it's the thing that started Star Wars saga, it's the beginning of the adventure, it's the movie that has changed cinematography forever. So, IMO we should get it before anything, even if we won't get any content after it.

    A New Hope stuff should be in every Battlefront game.

    The idea behind limiting it to just Specialist and Assault was that there would be sandstorms that came up at random(briefly mentioned in the Tusken concept so it wasn’t clear) to shake things up a bit. Specialist has infiltration and Assualt has scan dart to counter the limited visibility.
