    Depends on what you want really. If you just want to get points asap for the other vehicles heroes and etc. I'd suggest you take one that gives more BPs and another that gets you BP when u get hit, + improved shield and you are golden. For the weapon I'd recommend the second one with first and third mod. Or the third One with any mods
  • I think you have to change things up depending on the map. Easier said than done, when 60% of the time you are just thrown into a game without being able to select your class.

    I use the Turret. Racks up battlepoints and attacks troopers, vehicles and sometimes air. You could also use the Battlepoint card boost to increase the rate of points. I did carry the sentry card but due to the nerf, it's pointless having it, so I use Resourceful for faster cool down times on my abilities.

    On maps like Crait - if I am the First Order, I would equip the ION option and focus ski speeders to score rapidly, then grab an AT ST.

    Maps such as Deathstar and Endor, Kamino/Theed - as Empire /Clones, I use the Detonator card. Place it over the objective. The second you see it being capped, press Q and BOOM - they are dead. On these maps I replace the ION Turret with this card.

    On Theed, I will only select it on the final stage when the Droids have to over ride the security doors.

    Omg hey Jigglybean , didn't know you played this game. Know you from force arena
  • Thanks for the help everyone
  • Explosive sentry is real good, ion turret is good on long range maps, improved shield is good, defender is good for getting battlepoints, super charged sentry is honestly still good, the increased health regen Card helps too.

    If you aren't trying to farm BP for heroes than my ideal build would be improved shield + survivalist + resourceful. Below is how I play the class.

  • He asks for Blast but only gets tips for GA.

    The only change I would make is replacing the point generation cards with the ones listed above for blast instead of GA.

    I will give you the best person to talk to. @Dash_Gaming he has made several detailed posts about builds and how-to's.

    I will link you to one myself that he made. It should help you out tremendously so I recommend 100% to give it a read because it is very good.

    Improved shield, upgrade it until it becomes purple. Also the cooling card so that you could spam the gun a bit longer than your opponents.

    Sorry, just saw this. Been working a lot lately and weekends.

    Ok so when you love a class, it’s best to “Invent” your own builds first, kinda experiment a bit. But make sure you do in fact find your “weapon”, the one you’re comfortable with.

    After some practice, I would recommend you try either My build or try @t3hBar0n s build.

    Remember, it will always come down to what You’re comfortable with, and how much time You put into mastering your game play, and play style. Patience, with time you will excel :)

    Yeah definitely agree with the weapon. After the Barrage got a buff in the recent patch I swapped out my shield for it (it's cool but I rarely found myself using it anymore). I use the Barrage, Improved Impact for that extra suppression and explosive damage and Bounty Hunter because you will be racking up crazy points with all the explosives and objective play. Then my weapon I use is the DC-15LE with Improve Range and Reduced Recoil. For me it is super fun to use. And I love the regular sentry too because he isn't super slow when you walk while firing anymore.

    Barrage right now is Beastly. I am having way too much fun clearing rooms.

    Activate Barrage, Pop pop pop, throw impact grenade for good measure, walk in with TL-50 lookin like the terminator. Bang bang. Cool guys don’t look at explosions while walking away :sunglasses: , end of scene :)

    Lol thx Dash will be sure to try it out
  • If you main heavy equip Survivalist, Explosive Sentry, and Improved Combat Shield & víola top place every match
    Psn: Jello770
  • First understand normal sentry is useless and will get you killed fast. It doesn’t have suppression and means any trooper or sniper can simply scope and shoot you mid sentry. Apparently they don’t understand those type things in Scandinavia. Next the tl-50 is the only gun worth a plop in the game. If you don’t use this about 95 % of all CR2 and blurrg spam will kill you first. Cards, try enhanced shield, resource and a grenade card of some sort. Try barrage if you like but it will get you killed fast too. I have 48 points in heavy now. Many purples and blues. Experiment but right now heavy isn’t in a real good place. Both CR2 and blurrg are better guns than the tl50. Easier to handle. Good luck, I would advise you to just play Officer. Everyone else does.

    1. Base sentry is very effective if you use it properly, I have no idea why you think it is useless.
    2. The TL-50 is a great weapon and was objectively superior to the CR-2 in every way except RoF prior to patch... and that was exacerbated in the patch. With the nerfs to CR-2 and Blurrg, the TL-50 is the best blaster in the game inside its ranges. The other heavy blasters are not bad either in their intended roles.
    3. I would say heavy is in a very good spot currently aside from having some worthless star cards (like the recently nerfed ScS) and can be viable in all situations on all maps depending on loadout.
    4. Didn't you tell us all in your January 16th thread "Thanks Devs, I'm Out" that you were quitting due to the horros unleashed in the most recent patch? Did you already lose your conviction?

  • Because I’m out doesn’t mean I can’t post. Just telling the new folks how it is so they don’t have to waste time on painful cards and stuff. I stand by what I stated. Normal sentry is about worthless. It will do nothing but get you killed most of this time.
