What ended your killstreak ?



What's the most common weapon/ability on the battlefield that ended your kill-streak?

I would have to say for me is Assaults' Vanguard by a large margin.

What's yours ? A random thermal ? Palpatine ? Flash pistol :D

  • Stuck on obstacles as mentioned above or honestly my most displeasing moments come from above, Somebody in a fighter ship sniping me before I even realize it's come, doesn't happen super often cuz I try to be as cautious as possible but when it does it usually hurts.
  • Yeah I got stuck as Bossk last night rolling into a piece of the map made of glue , then I got merked by a random blaster.

    It's partially fixed now , you don't die when it hits zero.

    Happened to me as Rey and normal soldier it stayed at zero for a long time.

    Oh, well that’s great! I’ve taken extra precautions lately to avoid getting caught by it since it hates me so much, but now I’ll rush at least a little less than before.
  • Well I'm quite the wookiee magnet. Generally I spawn, find a wookiee, die, repeat.

    If there are no wookiees my deaths often involve some kind of suicidal action. Grenades are common here.

    I also like to sprint into the middle of no mans land and instead of firing spam a few emotes at the opposition. This does usually result it my death.

    Galactic Assault: A team mate getting in the way of my shot, leading to the the guy i'm shooting at killing me instead of me killing him.
    Starfighter Assault: A piece of environment that isn't visible.
    Heroes vs Villains: Not being able to use my abilities/light sabre until I die.
    Strike: Incompetent teammates not protecting me when I have the package.
    Blast: Vanguard/Detonator.

    Ohhhh and I forgot to mention this one, a real pain for sure....


    Sometimes I get a little to hyphy and attack an enemy player into or strafe into a doorway that is on the boundary of the map, the door will open for the player im attacking, then I get locked on the other side out of bounds because it will not open for me, haha!

    I no longer use this account or anything Battlefront related as of 08/07/2018.
  • Me and my team being outplayed, despite having Palpatine with us.
    Man! Could this game get any more broken?

    Im stuck so many times lol
  • Stuck on objects, random grenades, lightning through a fat concrete wall and vanguard when I get too greedy.

    Darkside: usually a Wookiee Overload knocking 400 off my max-HP in two shots and permenantly crippling me

    Lightside: usually Palpatine destroying all my stamina in half a second whilst I’m surrounded by droids.

    Generally speaking, it’s some **** like the above not killing me outright but crippling my health to the point where I’m very easily killed by a bit of gunfire or a grenade.
  • I get my biggest killstreaks in Starfighter Assault, and what usually ends those killstreaks is my either choking and crashing, or having half the opposing team going for that "Revenge" marker if I've killed enough of them. I'm usually top gun in Starfighter Assault.

    Palpatine end my 10 player killstreak
  • Didn't read everything, so someone may have said this... but getting trapped behind a locked door as a hero is the worst. It's similar to getting stuck on obstacles, but at least there's some chance to break free of those.

    If you get stuck behind a locked door then you need someone to open that door for you, which almost never happens.

  • Most of my killstreaks come in SA. This is probably just stuck out in my mind due to how infuriating it is, but I remember far more occasions when I lost a killstreak either to crashing or to an auto-aiming turret (either on a player ship or AI) than anybody flat out outplaying me.

    They should really just extend that to one minute on all maps until they come up with a more viable solution. Right now, everything about it puts heroes in too much unnecessary and undeserved danger.

    You don't die now when the timer hits zero.

    I was REY on Crait and it was stuck at zero for a very long time. I was freaking out but I never died.

    It also happened on another map as a regular soldier.

    I've definitely died from it hitting zero.

    I've also had this happen:



    That's not exactly the same thing, but it involves the retreat timer and it was the most frustrating death I've had.

    Oh, I see you said you don't die now when it hits zero. Well that's really good to know if it's true.

    Since the update a few days ago?

    What happened in your video looks like a bug though. Since it went from 45 "fall back" timer to 10 "return to objective" timer right away.

    I was on Crait after the server update and It stayed at zero for a very long time in the "fall back timer" screen, I was REY and freaking out , like noooooo. But I didn't die.
  • Depends on the map, but usually playing as specialist and rushing a hero to punch lightsabers to see if I'll ever get my arms cut off. But otherwise usually turning a corner and getting killed by a vanguard, or even worse.

    I feel like I've had it happen since the update, but I could be wrong. If it doesn't kill you anymore, that's great. Sadly, I don't have the heart to test it.

    How to make Every Hero Viable in Battlefront 2

  • A vehicle. Or being shot in the back.
  • Me. Usually getting carried away, and acting like an incompetent n00b. And when I do, I tend to keep doing silly things.

    Like yesterday: I was doing well, headshotting organics with my 242, and beating them to a pulp, until I chased an officer (whilst in a bubble) right into a crowd of those cloned ape-things. FAIL. Of course, then I lose the flow and keep being a nincompoop ... Time to do something else. Cleared the skies (and my mind) a bit, killed two heroes, uncrowded the platform, and got 15 or 16 player aircraft. Nice. Then I chased an AI right into a building. To top it off, I respawned, just to crash ten seconds later. Somewhat miffed now, I switched to Palpatine, intending to start a killing spree. Minutes later, I ran right into the intersection at the Kamino barracks. Unsurprisingly, FAIL, again. Three (!) kills with Sheev ... It went downhill from there. We lost.

    He probably encountered a bug. If you didn’t die when it hit 0 it would be exploited.

    Also @ OP playing the objective while my team is playing Operation Metro 100m out.

    It happened twice with Rey and then officer class.

    It's not a bug IMO.

    I think they included it in the server update to give players grace period to get back without dying.

    If anyone tried to exploit it you would get wrecked since you're in an enemy spawn zone.

    You could get a couple kills but not exploit it.

    Even with the standard 45 second timer you can still ignore it and get a couple kills.

    I do this when I have enough for a hero I take my chances staying in the greyed out zone.

    I am going to purposely wait for the timer to run out and see what happens tonight :)

    Done it before, sacrificed myself to slow down the enemy advance so my team can get in position :)

  • SA - 9 times out of 10 a piece of the environment.

    GA - Fall back timer or lately the game ending ... some of my best streaks start at the last objective(s) and often the game ends (win or loss)...
