What can Boba Fett ACTUALLY do anymore?

His last weapon was taken away from him in the newest patch. Now if you choose him on GA you will have only 180HP more than a reinforcement, you will do less damage than a specialist's ability, and you WILL die to 2-3 sniper headshots, or 3 seconds of focused fire from 2 players.

All for having a jetpack.

Why is DICE balencing the game around the lowest-common denominator of players? Other games usually balance around high-level gameplay, and Boba Fett can be absolutely bodied by anyone who knows that if you click on someone, they die. Be honest, outside of the weekend event, when was the last time you actually saw someone play Boba Fett on GA? When was the last time you saw a successful Boba Fett on GA? It never happens, yet Anakin can still grab you from 20 feet away (longer range than Boba Fett's missles are accurate by the way), Luke can still push you through your dodge or block and Yoda is still the most broken character in the game.

Why play Boba Fett? I only play characters I actually like from the films (Vader, Solo, Fett, Luke etc) but there seems to be little point if the game is going to be based around flavour of the month "whichever hero Dice accidentally made completely broken in this patch" gameplay.

  • Boba is basically useless nerfed content. #saberfest
  • He’s bottom-tier with Leia now, the good old DICE over-nerf hammer smashes again!

    I did have a bit of a laugh when I was playing last night, I had my Friday night Spotify playlist playing on my XB1, and when using Boba and thinking to myself what this thread title is, Fly Away by Lenny Kravitz came on just before Luke player got to me underneath the ATT :D
  • That would be why I don't ever want nerfs. Pre Felucia- everything was as fine as it ever had been; Yoda, Boba, Vader, Anakin. Not perfect but better than now

    And now he felt her, really felt her in the Force; He felt a bond, deeper and more intimate than he’d ever had before; and for a precious eternal instant he was her. . . 

    he was the beat of her heart and he was the motion of her lips. He was her soft words as though she spoke a prayer to the stars— I love you, Anakin. In life, and in death, we will always be one. I am yours


  • Only time i really use him now is on mos eisley map when its night. I usually cant see anything so his scanner with the extended time is nice for sneaking up on people.
  • Yet another reason why separate mode balance is required.

  • I feel the need to use him every single time now as his milestone with the triple defeat with the rocket barrage is one of the last ones I have left for heroes. Dont know if I will ever do it at the moment.

    Because "I only play one game-mode" players are ruining the game for everyone else.

    GA only players cried about Yoda being OP(deservedly so) and Yoda got nerfed hard for HvV, but plays basically the same in GA(s t u p i d right?)

    HvV only players cried about Boba and Vader(deservedly so) and they got nerfed harder for GA than HvV.

    Selfish players only want balance for the game-mode they play and screw everyone else. There's no reason Boba cost 4000bp's to play in GA while Anakin and Luke cost 4000 also.

    He's a terrible pick in GA. He was already low tier before his nerf, and now he's outright useless.

    In HvV, he's still technically the hardest villain to kill, but now he's also essentially the hardest villain to actually get kills with when you're using him. His one method of dealing high damage has been removed, yet Finn is still walking around buffing allies with 50% damage reduction, bonus health and faster cool downs. Try using Boba against a team that sticks with Finn and see how effective Boba is now. Borderline worthless.

    Wrong. It’s not the HvV players’ fault that DICE has failed to balance modes properly. We should be able to suggest changes and have DICE interpret those requests to make sure that the game remains balanced in all modes. Don’t just blame people because your favorite character got a nerf.

  • Don't listen to the people who agree with the nerf, because they're wrong.

    DICE really needs to stop removing features that gives anything advantage over anything. Example:

    Vader: Chokes hero and doesnt die after getting shot 10 times
    DICE: Removes damage reduction and Vader still can't block during choke

    Boba Fett: Weakest Villian with the ability to fly, but has a very weak inaccurate blaster.
    DICE: Over-nerfs the only ability he had that did damage to heroes, his rocket barrage

    Yoda: Very difficult hero to use, but has the advantage of being small and decent stamina when flipping around
    DICE: Over-nerfs yoda, making him a below-average hero.

    Kylo: Weak villain but has decent abilitys, and decent damage but very low stamina.
    DICE: Over-nerfs kylo

    Speeders: Low health, underused, super buggy hard-to-control light vehicle is great for taking out the occasional trooper and getting across the map quickly.
    DICE: Over-nerfs the speeders, making their blasters do virtually 0 damage, and don't fix its bugs.

    Its time DICE just stopped changing things because a handful don't like being killed by x and y using x and y methods. If a single skilled player uses some very difficult tactic to kill you(ie: The speeder laser barrage hero kill) IT DOESN'T MEAN SPEEDERS NEED TO BE NERFED.
    REVERT THE SPEEDER NERF!
  • There are two types of people on this forum who ask for nerfs.

    1. "Nerf Boba Fett's barrage from [value] to [value] because the ability itself is too powerful. As he stands, he is almost a one trick pony, so to compensate for lowering his best asset: buff his blaster by [value] and rework the concussion rocket to be more useful. Also increase health regen by [value]"

    and

    2. "NERF BOBA REMOVE FROM THE GAME I HATE HIM HE SUXX AND ALWAYS KILLS ME HES CHEAP"


    For some reason, the devs listen to person 2 more often than not

    If bobas health was increased and his blaster was buffed that would be the biggest mistake ever made.

    People need to understand that you need to AIM. This dumb argument about his blaster should seriously stop. If you've ever played against a boba who can aim you'd understand. But people can't handle skill requirements in a video game. It needs to be a given that you can always revert back to one button press and rack up kills when you can't use the primary means of doing damage from a blaster hero.

    His blaster is fine.
    His rocket barrage was not.

    Yeah I really don't care. This was all nonsense written in 1 minute to send a message that some deliver points and argue, while others cry, not that those specific points are good or bad, just that they are debated

    In reality, I didn't use Boba nor want him to be changed much at all

    I think he's talking about Boba in GA, where his blaster and jetpack isn't enough to make him a decent pick, he's still a beast in HvV.

    His blaster is fine in GA. I've had sizable kill streaks with boba before in GA. It's all up to the player. People act like he needs a way to do 5000 damage in one ability and his blaster should one shot every trooper from across the map.

    Umm... What?

    Who exactly are you to say what I said was nonsense that I just wrote to write.

    Tell me how a blaster that does as much damage as Boba's is bad?

    How much is it supposed to do? 400 per head shot? It already does 200. That can one shot any trooper unbuffed if you can aim.

    People get upset that his blaster is "useless" when it clearly isn't. Which literally makes no sense.

    This exactly though. This is why people actually need to think about the overall game.

    Boba's blaster damage/headshot multiplier should have been increased (GA buff). His jetpack fuel/jetpack speed decreased (HvV nerf), Air recovery speed shouldn't have been instantaneous and instead have an animation (HvV nerf), Barrage damage lessened (HvV nerf), Concussion Rocket reworked (GA and HvV buffs) etc

    Not just tweaking a single aspect when changing a character.

    Yoda I offered plenty of perfect achievable balance solutions

    These are my real thoughts. I won't go into detail about it because it's all been said before in previous Boba topics

  • What’s funny is how Boba’s blaster is basically better in every way than Lando’s blaster, but no one cares about Lando. Boba has better range, far better accuracy, the nature of the burst makes it easier to fire at max rpm, and it has better general utility and cooling. Lando’s blaster, while it does have some good dps, is terrible overall.

    1. "Nerf Boba Fett's barrage from [value] to [value] because the ability itself is too powerful. As he stands, he is almost a one trick pony, so to compensate for lowering his best asset: buff his blaster by [value] and rework the concussion rocket to be more useful. Also increase health regen by [value]"

    and

    2. "NERF BOBA REMOVE FROM THE GAME I HATE HIM HE SUXX AND ALWAYS KILLS ME HES CHEAP"


    For some reason, the devs listen to person 2 more often than not

    I agree it really hurts I can't even use him anymore because he just can't keep up with dps output that others are dishing out

    Boba's gotta be a nightmare to balance, but they overdid it. His admittedly ludicrous crutch ability's gone, but now he's just a good gun with little health and manuverability, one eh ability and one nigh-useless one. I actually think his Blaster's really good, but I've been asking for Boba to get a normal zoom function for... well, years now. It's a small thing I'd like to see, alongside everything else...
    Boba has seen many changes, and I’m not a fan. He’s cheezy, able to zip away at a moment’s notice to blast away at you with his Explosive diarrhea and evade all your attacks. Now he has in-air recovery and dodges, and he’s awful. I've hated Boba even since the first game, mainly because his control scheme is so wonky to me, and his ADS (when he had one, anyways...) was very awkward to use. My suggestions for Boba are pretty radical, so here me out.
    I would like to go old school BF2015 and move either For the Hunt or the Concussion Rocket to Y/Triangle on console. I would like to move his Jetpack over to the Left Bumper like the Jumtroopers have it. This frees up the left trigger the aim down sights! Woot! He has a burst-fire sniper rifle, it baffles me as to how in the world they don't let him aim. I actually really like the damage and spread/recoil of the gun, but I like the option to aim normally. It’s funny, most of the heroes with a blaster don’t just have a regular zoom, they either have a secondary fire or some super-special optics on it that are kind of an eyesore. Of course, I’m not sure how this would work on PC, perhaps double-jumping with the Space Bar would work, but I’m not sure. Either way, I’d enjoy a control toggle so players could choose what they prefer. Boba can aim, melee, has all his abilities, I think it would be much more natural and fun to play.
    Another issue I have is his Jetpack, he’s got such insane mobility and can cover so much distance it’s ludicrous, especially with FtH active. I’d want the base Boba Fett to be a middle ground between the old slower ascending version and the F-15 we’ve got now, and this will be further expanded by his Star Cards. They also gave him both an in-air recovery AND mid-air dodges, so let’s fix it. I think it’s totally fair for some Hero abilities to bring Boba down, he’s already got a massive advantage over them. So, the only times his recovery will activate are if he takes enough damage/gets knocked in mid air and will fall halfway to the ground, or if he’s pushed over a ledge (and he has enough Fuel to ascend). I think it’s okay if he gets that. As for his dodges, he only gets one while airborne, and it takes twice as long as a normal dodge.
    Speaking of For the Hunt, let’s talk about that! I’d give it a much bigger radius, it’s so tiny, it’s really only useful in chokepoints or close-quarters which to me defeats the purpose of an ability that lets you see players through obstacles. Maybe a radius like Rey’s Insight would work best. Perhaps to make it unique, it could pulse like his old trait in 2015, revealing enemies for a moment and the final pulse staying with the enemies it reveals for a few seconds afterwords. During For the Hunt, Boba’s Flamethrower becomes more akin to the First Order Flamethrower, however the flamethrower will drain it’s own stamina bar. This flamethrower will grant 20-25% more damage to Wookiees, including Chewbacc, and does have a minor burn effect. I’d love it if he could aim it at the ground to perform area denial, like you can in Battlefield I and you can with the Flametrooper’s grenade. Having shown my ire with how he can stay up in the air for so long, I’d instead have For the Hunt greatly lessen how fast his fuel drains, like 50-75%. That way he does benefit from it, but he can’t just stay airborne for the entirety of the ability duration.
    Next up has been a point of contention for many moons, Rocket Barrage. This thing is kind-of absurd... with the right star cards. Supposedly, each rocket deals 78 damage, and he fires 4 without Intense Barrage, 8 with it. That’s 312 without and 624 with the card equipped. Then there’s the other Star Card, and with that equipped it’s either 360 without or 720 with Intense Barrage as well. This ability is Boba’s one-trick trump card, as while I think his gun and melee are good, this is the only thing he’s got offensively going for him as an ability. I find that it isn’t particularly accurate though, so you can really only use it right on top of someone. Here’s my Radical suggestion, I’d like to give the Rockets themselves less damage, 60 a piece. They’ll have a larger area of effect though, like a 2-3 meter radius of drop-off. Rocket Barrage will fire 6 rockets, and this amount will stay constant no matter the cards equipped, and the base version fires as fast as they do without Intense Barrage equipped. You’ll see how my reworks on the Star Cards for it affect it. At 360 damage total I think this will be more fair, since he’ll not rely both on the ability and on the cards for it as much but it would still be a powerful tool in his arsenal with a larger area of effect for the explosives. It could even have a slightly faster cooldown, but I don’t want to push it.
    Ah, the Concussion Rocket. When a Hero just gets a useless version of an infantry weapon (since the Officer's flash-bang does damage, the effect lasts longer, AND it brings even heroes to a crawl...), I'm irritated. Heck, it doesn’t even have a hit marker, so you can’t tell who’s under it’s effects! First, I’d like to give Concussion Rocket the effect of the blaster disable outright, and outline whoever’s affected in white. I’d also like to give it some anti-vehicle/turret use, able to destroy small turrets outright, and can deal some damage to larger vehicles. Last, the Rocket will now have a large area that slows enemy movement, keeping them from running and removing one roll/dodge from them. Those changes I bet could make it a potent crowd control system to better contend with groups of future bounties, I don’t even think you’d need damage added to it.
    Boba’s perk is lifted from the new Star Cards, that being his abilities refresh faster in the air but his health regeneration is slower.
    Card Reworks: This one’s a doozey. “Death from Above” is a really particular card and I’m not a fan, since it only gives him 15% damage reduction at top tier, all only while he’s in mid-air using his Barrage for a few seconds. I’d like to swap it for a “Mandalorian Armor” card, increasing his base health at the cost of reverting his Jetpack to the way it was pre-patch, perhaps even slower. At top tier, it’d add the usual +100/150 extra health. Another is to change “Blaster Disabler” into a “Disintegrations” card that makes his Flamethrower melee given increased distance however the flamethrower will now drain from Boba’s fuel supply (albeit not as quickly as him flying). Each tier will give it more distance on the Flamethrower. “Acute Concussion” will become an increased area of affect card, bringing it up to the largest radius Heroic Might can get, at the cost of slightly increased recharge time. “Bounty Claimed” will be a fun one. For every enemy he kills, the more end-round credits the player gains. +5 credits for standard infantry, +10 for reinforcements and +15-20 for heroes (maybe vehicles). It will also give you triple the normal score you’d receive as a hero, so instead of +10 Battle-points for 100 points of damage, it’s +30. This card would NOT work in arcade. “Extended Exposure” should grant something more to be worth it, I say that every marked target killed during the ability will grant increased active time (say up to 35%), “Quick Refill” and “Fuel Efficiency” seem a tad unnecessary and fill up a lot of valuable card space, sp let’s make “Quick Refill” a general Fuel consumption card, one that both refills his Jetpack faster AND makes it burn slower. I’d also make the values for it more worth it, going from 10% faster to 25% faster. “Fuel Efficiency” will now be an “Afterburner” card that greatly increased the Jetpack’s speed up to it’s current state, at the cost of his Jetpack being more volatile, with his mid-air recovery being lost and him taking more damage (20%) while flying. By the way, equipping both “Mandalorian Armor” and “Afterburner” will cancel out the speed effects and bring him to his normal speed. Then there’s the changes to the Rocket Barrage cards. “Intense Barrage” indeed causes the ability to fire faster, but that’s it. It doesn’t add more shots to it, it just causes it to go faster, from Thoom-Thoom-Throom to Throomthroomthroom. It increases in 10% increments from 20% to 50% faster. However, the Barrage will now have a longer cooldown, an extra 5-10 seconds. “Anti-Hero Rocket” will similarly have it’s values changed slightly, from 12 extra damage to 15 extra damage at max value (a total of 450 damage against heroes). I think these changes will make each Boba more personally tailored to every player, people who want a fast flyboy will have a loadout (“Refill”, “Extended Exposure”, and “Afterburner”), a crowd-controling infantry killer (“Disintegrations”, “Acute Concussion”, “Bounty”) or a heavy-hitting Jedi killer (“Barrage”, “Mandalorian Armor”, “Anti-Hero Rockets” ) and everything in between. Almost like he’s a Bounty Hunter!
    4th ability “NA”: So here’s the thing… he already has 4 abilities. I already went over a possible change in controller layout, so this should be fine.
    Skins: Boba has a couple of neat skin ideas, the most obvious being the armor variant from Empire where he has those green gauntlets, the more blueish jumpsuit, and a different-looking blaster. Another is the prototype all-white version they didn’t end up making for the film. The most unusual one to me though would be the one from the animated short in The Holiday Special where Boba makes his first ever appearance (they’ve even made a version of the rifle he wielded in the short for The Mandalorian). I bet they could be fun, even though the ROTJ armor is still my favorite.
    But he's kinda sad now.
    "I felt there was a large amount of human chauvinism... also I felt very bad that at the end the Wookie didn't get a medal also... oh, all the people got medals but the Wookie who had been in there fighting all the time, didn't get any medal, and I thought that was an example of Anti-Wookie discrimination." - Carl Sagan on the subject of Star Wars
    He knew.
  • He’s in a bad place at the moment. He was the best bounty hunter at the time of the empire, yet everything about him is meh except his jet pack.

    He should be strong and calculating, not weak and annoying.
  • Ehi, but mind trick still can f**k u for like 6 seconds. that's so fair!
