Too iconic, the community is asking, imagine a time when Shadow Guards with force pikes were crushing the Rebels. Red Guard is cool but Shadow Guard even cooler still.

    Seems like they would be like a hero but with half the health tbh, like the royal guards of palpa liznich in BF1

    How about for heroes like Palpatine and Leia, you could choose which guards spawn in. For Emperor palpatine, you could choose to have the shadow guards instead of the royal guards or you could have the courascant guards. And for Leia, you could have different honor guards as well. Count Dooku could have Magma guards or elite droids you see in the clone wars. And for the Republic, Yoda can have temple guards or personal clone troopers.

    Would be cool.
  • Imperial Shadow Guards as special unit maybe.

    Palpatine would only have the Emperor's Guard.

    He kept them for appearance.

    Yeah, but Palpatine is never really in a battlefield in the movies. It could make sense if he had the imperial shadow guard for battle.

    I used the shadow guard as the basis of a character, Darth Pravus, in the creating your own battlefront immersion and background story discussion

  • Just make them a skin change for the Red Guard with a saber pike instead of a force pike.

    I just hope in this game there's actualy melee units like Red guards, magnaguards and so on, whether they are special units or bodyguards.
    I don't want them to change them and give them a blaster, that's BORING. Gimme melee units.

    I have no issues with giving them blasters per se.
    But they should also retain their melee abilties as well.

    Also even if the Red guards have ranged weapons, the Magnaguards can afford being more lore-accurate.
    Since they are robots they can give them abilities which block blasters (not deflect them) and quickly close the distance between enemis to use their melee attacks.

    Yeah, I guess they could. But I'd actually like to have some melee units, like you say Magnaguards could work like that perfectly, and I'd love to play as one.

  • Shadow Guards deflecting blaster fire and going melee would make my day.

    I'd love to have the shadow guards as heroes as well. Imagine doing the force maelstrom attack where you create a charged field of lightning around you that zaps enemies and then discharges into a great force lightning.

    Shadow guards currently arent canon I dont think. ..they're awesome, I even based the sith lord of the fanfiction post creating your own battlefront immersion and background story on them but I don't think they'll show :(

  • I know this is irrelevant but I want the ability to go invisible with the shadow troopers in the Multiplayer..I don't understand why they were just a skin in the current Battlefront

    That's why I rather get them as a special unit within the resource system instead of a skin, that way it could have abilities like going invisible.

    No it wouldn't. He fought rebels with royal guards in lords of the sith.

    That's fine, all I'm saying is they hace to actually give them their staffs and melee combat.
    Since they said hand to hand combat is being fully redone, they can incorporate staffs and other melee weapons into it.

    Yes, and he made sure there were no witnesses and he didn't reveal his abilities to the rest of the Imperial forces.

    The force pikes would be their weapons as they were force sensitive. Not that I wouldn't mind them whipping out their T 21s and heavy blasting things like the red guards. They should use both imo.

    If they were heroes one of their skills would be switching from melee to T21 like Erso does with her firing modes. Then I'd have the force maelstrom as the main heavy hitting skill. It shields while electrocuting at close range and then does a powerful chain lighting attack when shield goes down. As for the third skill, I'd say complete radar stealth and increased movement speed to pair up with the melee mode.

    Now that hero count has the potential to be way bigger than in Battlefront15, with the light side heroes surpassing Siths and other dark side villains, Shadow Guards and other force wielders would be necessary to implement. Let's say Kit Fisto, Mace, Quin Jon Jin, Ahsoka make it into the game. Who would balance them out? Ventress, Shadow guards, Inquisitors would have to make an appearance. Who else?
