Blaster Heroes HELLO!

Hey Guillaume or @F8RGE,

You all do realize that there are still blaster heroes in the game right? Have you played as a lot of the blaster heroes lately? They still need a lot of improvements......especially since the arc troopers and Clone commandoes have come out. Arc troopers and clone commandoes are far superior to most all the blaster heroes.

  1. Bossk's is over reliant on his abilities. He needs to be able to rapid fire relby when not scoped in. Kind of on par with lando or han's blasters. Possibly give his gas cloud similar visual impairment abilities like lando smoke cloud as well as lock on deactivation.
  2. Boba needs improvements to give him a scope that makes his blaster more accurate only when scoped in at distance. he should only be able to scope in when not flying. He also needs a change or improvement to his concussion missile.
  3. Iden needs a new ability besides pulse cannon.......NO one uses it anymore in ANY game mode. Change it please! I'd rather her droid shoot blaster bolts or stinger bolts, than get a pulse cannon or leave as like a sentry turret in a location like officer turret.....something.
  4. Han needs to be able to move normal with rapid fire activated.
  5. Chewy and Lando need some sort of improvement to shock...............iden shock is far superior right now because if it hits chewy it seems to be bugged and keeps him in place so that his entire health can be depleted now.
  6. Chewy bow caster needs improvements......I would suggest changing focus fire to a single shot that can hit people at distance. Too many people melt chewy's health at distance and there is nothing he can do but run and hide because all his abilities are close quarters.
  7. Lando needs an upgrade to his smoke.........option one is to make his size and duration of his smoke cloud longer and bigger without star cards. With star cards it should last an incredibly long time. Option two is to change is smoke cloud to be a gas cloud that still provides visual impairment to enemies. Or combine options one and two.
  8. Fix finn, so that he gets damage reduction for himself. Currently he doesn't get damage reduction but teammates do.
  9. Leia......needs a new ability besides shield.
  10. Phasma is fine now
  11. Emperor needs a block that can block two maybe three lightsaber attacks......blaster heroes should be able to melt through the block based on damage.

  • The only good change is the leía shield
  • What's a blaster hero?

    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

    They are those small creatures devoured by the crazy, laser sword-wielding maniacs that descend randomly upon planets to perform their strange rituals in which they smack their swords together repeatedly until suddenly sheathing them in one of these poor, defenseless creatures.

    Ah I have heard legends of these docile little mammals. If the violent nature of their predators gets out of hand they will soon be extinct.

  • They shouldn’t be in the category of “Hero” in their current state. I would rather have a clone commando over just about everyone, and the ARC trooper is basically Lando with full regen and stays off the map.

  • I don’t agree with a lot of these, but I would love to see blaster heroes get some love, for a change.

    You don't agree.......yet you don't offer counters in return or even begin to explain what could be improved upon.


    1. Bossk is weak because in cqc battles he has to rely on abilities. Even moving around he has to rely on his abilities. If he could shoot more like a blaster pistol when not scoped in moving around (meaning minor damage but faster fire rate) he'd be a bigger threat in all game modes. They just need to leave ability to snipe when scoped in. Gas cloud could be modified to be like lando's smoke cloud to impair visuals and prevent lock on for saber heroes. Luke, Anakin, obiwan and sometimes yoda could still push him out of the cloud. Or make gas stick to people like stinger damage unless they use the bodyguard star cards to reduce gas damage.
    2. Everyone keeps complaining about Boba....main problem was the rockets and movement speed. Since they reduced the rocket damage and speed he isn't much of a threat anymore. He just needs better blaster upgrade at this point and an improvement to concussion missle, probably a slight increase of rocket speed, but that's it. Other suggestions to return rocket damage to previous state are foolish.
    3. What else would yo suggest for Iden.....everything she has is fine EXCEPT THE PULSE CANNON because NO ONE uses it!
    4. Han Only needs to be able to move normally with rapid fire.......especially since so many dark side can move around so quickly already and have immunity for various abilities.
    5. Everyone complained about the shock grenades.....but force powers have become far worse. Throwing you all over the place and people can time it
    6. Chewy does need something for distance as he is an easy target to hit and melt his health. Bowcaster focus fire needs to allow chewy to hit distance targets maybe just when overheat is activated.
    7. Lando's gas cloud should do damage to enemies just like bossk gas cloud.......this is my counter to Bossk getting a similar feature. Both heroes need a slight bit of help in CQC. Essentially they will be the same thing ability. Bossk's will just be greenish-yellow gas and lando's will be whitish-grey gas........different types of gas.
    8. Finn's damage reduction should give it to himself.....it's his ability.
    9. Leia really does need something besides shield......it's barely useful in GA, which is pretty much the only game mode where it is used.
    10. Phasma is fine.....especially if she can pick up droid.
    11. Emperor does need something to help him with saber spammers.


    Again provide details as to what you don't agree with................generic comments are useless at this point because it just causes Dice to fix one thing and break another.

    Bossk doesn't need buffs. Many villain blasters don't need any buffs besides Iden in one area. Others need changes. Emperor especially doesn't need buffs

    LS blasters need buffs

    I actually agree. Dark Side non-sabers are fine because they are pretty hard to kill. Boba can fly, Palpatine have the best dodges in the game, Phasma can camp with the Droid, Bossk is maybe easy to kill but it will take atleast half of your hp because of mines. The weakest one is Iden which is still pretty strong thanks to the alt fire. Light Side blaster heroes are by far too easy to kill compared to DS. The only one who can save himself is Han thanks to his explosive and shoulder charge other than the 3 rolls. LS blasters needs a huge buff.

    1. agree his gun could use a buff/rework however his gas does NOT need any visual impairment as it all ready has some and so does his grenade launcher and mines. buff/rework his gun and if his gun is still not good enough remove the ability to use officer disruption/defuser on either his gas or mines or both.

    2. his gun needs no buff people that can actually aim while flying have no issue with it. I agree concussion rocket could use some work his blaster disabler card dont even work half the time either.

    3. her pulse canon is fairly situational but actually isn't bad it would be nice for her to get a 4th ability though that could be changed with her own special set of star cards kind of like how she had different things she could use in campaign.

    4. I agree with this

    5. not sure what you mean with the whole chewy thing but Landos stun should be undodgable like it used to be.

    6. it does feel like his bowcaster could still use some work honestly miss his bowcaster from 2015.

    7. I have played games that have much larger smoke grenades I dont know why his has to be so small.

    8. Finn needs damage reduction for himself back yes but at the same time big deal is to strong in GA the damage reduction values for troopers and Finn himself need to be adjusted.

    9. give Leia the old officers flash grenade that used to slow you and she would be far better and her shield should get some buffs and be undeployable instead of being removed. would also like to see her E-11 get a rework that turns it into a solid ranged gun instead of what we have now.

    10.agreed

    11. Palps got a ton of stealth buffs recently last thing he needs is a block.

    2. My suggestion was to improve the accuracy of his weapon ONLY when Fett is on the ground by allowing some one to scope in to get better accuracy. If he is flying he doesn't get to scope in to get better accuracy.

    3. Yeah it is extremely situational, to the point that it's probably only used once in a blue moon on GA. There is NO SITUATIONAL instance in HvV that makes it of slight consideration. Your better off just secondary firing............as it's hardly used in any game mode it should be swapped with a new better ability.

    5. If you test out chewy and iden's shock side by side, you will find that Iden's shock is much, much longer than Chewy's and Lando's now. Although chewy's can take people out of block, while Iden's shock I don't think can. If the person being attack isn't blocking or iden shocks a blaster hero, then Iden can take away 3/4 if not all the health of the blaster heroes because of how long her duration is I think that Iden's shock is also bugged when used on chewy or chewy himself is bugged again because the shock duration seems to last a few seconds longer on him than on other heroes shocked in the same attack. it's like back a few months ago when immobilizing abilities lasted much longer on chewy than other characters, the one where I think Kylo's freeze lasted longer on chewy than any other character.

    Essentially I think Iden's shock duration might be bugged......if it's not......... then something needs to be done about chewy and lando's shock to bring them to par with Iden's. Agree with the Lando shock comment.

    6. Agree

    7. Agree

    8. Agree

    9. I could settle with that.....that's a pretty good buff improvement!
  • Only one I have changed my mind on now is 11.........I don't think we need this one anymore.
  • Updating the list to be more relevant for January 2020

    BOSSK
    • Bossk's is over reliant on his abilities. He needs to be able to rapid fire relby when not scoped in. Kind of on par with lando or han's blasters. Or switch out an unused star card to grant him this same ability, example replace star card that gives 30 health for sitting in gas cloud. It's kind of pointless now with bossk auto heal. Possibly just decrease health regen time to compensate.
    • Possibly give his gas cloud similar visual impairment abilities like lando smoke cloud as well as lock on deactivation.
    • Allow Bossk to jump higher again and/or give him fourth ability that allows him to do a forward leap attack can be used to escape, place themselves behind an enemy, or attack.
    • Another option for a fourth is to allow bossk to stick to walls, but NOT ceilings for a short duration as a fourth. Bossk

    BOBA
    • Boba needs improvements to give him a scope that makes his blaster more accurate only when scoped in at distance. Should only be helpful in midrange. Far range it should still spread even with scope. h
    • Scoping in should put his jetpack in hover mode to spend less fuel.
    • He also needs a change or improvement to his concussion missile.

    IDEN
    • Iden needs a new ability besides pulse cannon.......NO one uses it anymore in ANY game mode. Change it please! I'd rather her droid shoot blaster bolts or stinger bolts, than get a pulse cannon or leave as like a sentry turret in a location like officer turret.....something.
    • Or at least fix the rapid fire bug(PS4 problem at least) on the pulse cannon along with the aimer. it has issues.
      HAN
      • Han needs to be able to move normal with rapid fire activated.
      • Han potentially needs dual shoulder charges again at least for large scale game modes.

      CHEWY
      • Chewy needs some sort of improvement to shock...............iden shock is far superior right now because if it hits chewy it seems to be bugged and keeps him in place far longer than chewy's shock does to people even with extended duration. Iden players can depleted his entire health with droid shock.
      • Chewy's shock is also bugged because people can still fire sentry turrets when affected.
      • Chewy bow caster needs improvements itself.
      • Point Blank range with bowcaster, and getting all three or two dots, on target should pulverize assault, officer, and specialist unbuffed. Two shots for heavy with sentry activated or buffed.
      • I now suggest that you give him a single fire explosive shot fourth ability that has a medium to semi far range. With high drop off after that to prevent shooting across maps like leia secondary. It should damage and or instantly kill unbuffed (assault, Officers, specialist) at distance. However, when activating the ability it has a slight charge up time to prevent people spamming it in CQC situations and not using ground slam instead. The blast area should be within a foot or two to do all the damage just like concussion missile is now and super large drop off after that.
      • Chewy also potentially needs double ground slam to potentially use to get around faster. If you jump ground slam you shouldn't be able to block it and it should go into cooldown. However, if you just use it to sprint you should be able to use it twice before cool down.
      • These suggestions are primarily there to fix all chewies issues in large scale game modes. A few are for HvV.

        LANDO
        • Lando really just needs improvements to his smoke cloud, my suggestions are
        • Make smoke cloud bigger and longer, and thicker without star cards. With star cards it should be incredibly big and long that it would almost require people to temporarily switch to nightscope to see through it.
        • Another option is to make it last slight longer and slight bigger, but give it stinger damage as well.
        • Or combine the two if people worry this might be too op.....there is still the Bodyguard star card that reduces gas damage for troopers. Only small stinger pistol damage though.

        LEIA
        • Leia needs a star card that will allow the user to switch out her shield in HvV.
        • Also she needs bug fixes because her aimer on the E-11 doesn't always work properly
        • Also she needs bug fixes to the flashgrenade. If it hits a friendly or object super close to her it sometimes doesn't go off and is a dud

        FINN
        • Needs a fourth ability to switch as the users request between his rifle and his pistol.
        • Undercover boss should then become another ability entirely. My suggestions are an improved version of specialist shock grenade that has a bigger radius and and slows the enemy down slightly more.
        • Improve damage versions of specialist trip mines maybe able to layout three total.
        • Or proximity mines like Nein Nunb from Battlefront 1, again three at a time.
      • Might also suggest

    1. Chewy bugs


      When heavy is shocked he can still shoot sentry. Also I have him shocked and all shots on point AT POINT BLANK RANGE, but it takes the entire duration and multiple On-Point, Point-Blank shoots to kill this one person.
    2. Leia Issues and why I suggest her improvements




      You'll notice in the second one the E-11 is broken because I have to run up to shoot the person point blank in the back. Unlike certain points in the first video where I zoom with E-11.

      Also both videos show close range flash nade impact, but it's a miss fire.

      I have never encountered such creatures. I have however witnessed a more timid, laser sword-wielding creature that curously avoids high traffic areas, preferring to prey on the unaware in dark places. If you encounter such a creature, it is advised to lure him/her into the open. It has been observed that their laser sword can easily be overloaded with blaster fire, resulting in it turning off completely and leaving them utterly defenseless at which point they will either attempt to flee or in desperation use some random ability which results in their inevitable demise.
    4. The key is to fix the tracking and lunge. Until the dodge mechanic works _at_ _all_ for blaster heroes it is pointless to work on any other tweaks.

      After that you can look at the fact that a blaster hero can't get through a blocking saber character's stamina fast enough. Or that the blaster heroes are so slow they are free kills when separated from teammates. Or that their health regen is too low.

      But it all starts with the broken dodge mechanic.
    5. Dodge mechanic is easy is get around.....

      All stuns
      han charge
      All bossk's abilities
      Iden secondary
      Boba Rockets
      Finn Lock on
      Lando lock, just wait until done dodging or in between dodges on some character

      The problem is that blaster heroes don't have enough capabilities or power on their own to last or eliminate enemies quickly enough before the enemy start moving all around you with lunges, dodges, jumps, force powers, etc to finish you off.
    6. Bossk doesn't need buffs. Many villain blasters don't need any buffs besides Iden in one area. Others need changes. Emperor especially doesn't need buffs

      LS blasters need buffs

      He needs his cards fixed
