Luke Should be Able to Use His DL-45 Blaster

I propose that we take away Luke's repulse ability or his push and change it so Luke can pull out his DL-45, shooting it with his right hand and at the same time blocking incoming fire or enemy sabers with his light saber.

Luke cannot attack with his light saber during this ability.

It would also restrict his movement like Han's sharpshooter ability.

-

Luke would be able to shoot down Boba and Palps when he's alone or shoot at a sniping Bossk or Iden as well as getting in hits into a fleeing saber trying to regain stamina or get hits in before a fight from a distance, all while he is protected by his lightsaber.

I believe this would make Luke extremely versatile as he could excel in both close and range combat.

It would also help people who only play blaster heroes to have an in-between hero to get into light saber combat.

  • Nah. Would fit Kanan Jarrus better.

  • Unless it knocks you down like repulse then no way.
  • Unless it knocks you down like repulse then no way.

    Agreed

    Unless he shoots it into the ground and it creates a 12 meter shockwave that knocks down enemies and deals damage

    then no

    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

    Repulse deals meager damage but sets up free lightsaber strikes so its actually a great ability. And now that CC works from behind it's even better. Rush attack-repulse-free saber strikes. Or rush attack-repulse-push if you wanna thin out a squad

    Speaking of which, i laugh when i see someone use repulse then immediately push in a 1v1, considering we were discussing 1v1s earlier

    I know its gonna be an ez fight, because even if he lands a stun on me, i'm safe because he'll create for me LOL

    Huh? Who said anything about needing it? I want it so he'll actually stay comp.

    Unless you're willing to create about 12 topics for each character, redesigning the entire game and its dynamic to compensate for removing a core ability from 1 Hero that is excellently built, then it is a stupid idea

    Yeah in that case push saves you lol. I only use it to keep Boba at bay and get teams off my homies so we can set back up...unless it's a ledge map😈😈 repulse(with epicenter) and intensify can be devastating to Palps as well.

    I never quite noticed it being a key ability. Then again, I'm Boba every darkside round and shooting luke in the back.

    He never seems to get a hit in on me ever.

    That's why I proposed this, to deal with Boba, Palps and the other blaster heros.

    I see. Well most team Lukes use Extended Reach and/or Strong Repulse to mezz chain with Anakin's HM and Pull and Chewies that can knock with bowcaster and Ground Slam. All of these are enough to take out any Bobas that may get too close

    Yeah of course. That's what any smart boba does. Bursts of jetpack

    Either way you're oppressed due to this, and cannot get close till your TMs create for you

    Okay

    I don't play traditional Boba, I play very aggressive. I hop around and stay just out of reach.

    And that brings me to this thread; If I am not affected by force powers through dodging at the right time, Luke sure would do a good job countering me with his blaster ability.

    The above mentioned extended push reach, Strong Repulse, Attraction, Control the Force, Bowcaster, Ground Slam, AoP are already fine counters to Bobas.

  • I'm very hard to hit as Luke for a Boba that wont come in close. And if I see him try to fly in I'm gonna try for a jump push to keep him at bay.

    I understand your point, but there exists enough to deal with Boba, or at least negate him.

    There is no doubt a good boba is a top tier menace, but he's not OP and doesnt warrant removing a staple ability from a character designed for another purpose

    No offense. But if I'm a saber and you're Boba it's just gonna be a stalemate. Two people who wont be able to hit each other and you chasing me around the map. You already said you stay out of reach with him. That would be the most annoying 1v1 ever. I'm Xbox1 anyway.

    They both have their uses. Depends on situation and map really. If I had to choose I'd say repulse right now because it can CC from behind. I get alot more kills using repulse+saber strike combos then I do off push. Unless its Bespin or Kashyyyk😈

    Give the blaster to Obi-Wan, so he can say "So uncivilized." after every use.

    I'd be fine if they removed Repulses knockdown honestly, and just have it be an area of effect ability that damages enemies and maybe slightly staggers them. I like the idea of this as an ability, but it would be nice if it were an optional Star Card/Ability like troopers have.

    Hey folks, removed some posts from in here that were just unnecessary, if you disagree with the OP that's fine but don't bait with memes.
  • The other reason I proposed this is for people who only play blaster heros (like me) to have a half-way blaster hero that does saber combat. I'm not really the biggest fan of saber combat and a half-way saber would be nice and versatile in all forms of combat.

  • Yeah, I just don't see this happening at this point. I don't really like Repulse and this ability would be pretty cool, but I don't think they'll completely redo it at this point.

  • yes yes and yes! Luke is proficient with both blaster and lightsaber

    Keep Repulse and add the Blaster option as his 4th Ability
