Why does Leia use an E-11 and not her blaster pistol from ROTJ or ANH?

Why does Leia use an E-11 and not her blaster pistol from ROTJ or ANH? I've been wondering this since day 1 was it a balancing choice or something else?

  • Probably easier at the time. The poor game got rushed so it would of been quicker than programming a new weapon.

    Yup. It was recycling in action. At least they are undoing a lot of it with the new hero bodyguards being what they should have been. Leia is likely stuck with the E-11. At least she used it briefly in episode 4. She used her pistol more, so I would have rather seen that. The E-11 was just borrowed for a bit.

    :joy:

    Enough with the Pistols, look how her Honor Guards have become.. They were far more superior before Bespin with their A280C!

    yeah but its more accurate and makes more sense but the e-11 isnt a problem or anything not a big deal

    Our top priority is Leia's Boushh and Death Star skin.

    Do you not think its because if hero choices too? If they had made the hero choices early it would have been a case of 4 blaster pistol heroes on the rebel side, if Leia had of had her pistol. Against 2 force users, a dlt-19 user, a ee-3 user and a pistol user. They might have thought it would be unbalanced.

    We will probably get one of her pistols as an unlockable in the long run.

    Let's not forget that Leia wielded the E-11 like a pro on several occasions. It's a perfectly acceptable weapon for her to use.

    Remember she used it on Bespin as well as during the Death Star escape.

    Yeah I get where your coming from but I still believe that her weapon should be changed to the pistol

    I don't have the season pass so can someone tell me if In the Bespin DLC does she have her Bespin outfit?

    I'm honestly surprised she doesn't
  • They've been a bit on the lazy side with hero skins for whatever reasons. The most iconic part of this game is the heroes but generic outfits were spit out quickly and it stayed that way until we got some Hoth skins for Luke/Han and Endor for Leia. They need to get more variety in the upcoming releases. There are plenty to work with from the OT.

    As for Leia's gun, she should probably have her pistol. If that happens give her Honor Guards their A280C back! She should protect herself short range and once again give her guards mid/long range protection.

    I prefer Leia with an E-11.
  • The Hutt Cartel prefer Leia in her Slave costume...Hohoho...Hahaha.
  • The E-11 was more appropriate to her initial costume (Hoth/Bespin) than was her pistol.

    Agreed. Cinnabun look is a must for the pistol, though.
  • i just think endor leia should become the standard leia skin, i mean its much better in most maps, and luke and han also use their endor skin as default
