Help for GA Hoth?

Ok so, I'm a fairly good player on most maps, but I'm just so bad on Hoth. Could someone give me some tips for GA on Hoth. Thanks!
I had a dream, that one day on the sweet hills of Georgia, everybody will be able to play the Star Wars game they've always wanted.

  • So here's what I normally do.

    Rebels
    I always play as Heavy, and use Ion Torpedo, Barrage, and Bounty Hunter. Whenever someone is charging up to shoot a Walker, I get the Torpedo out, and fire it just before thr Walker gets hit, since the Torpedo will hit by the time the Walker starts taking damage. Then I pull out Sentry, and start unloading. Alternatively, if both those are on cool down, I use the Dish Turrets. You can get around 3 shots in, for about 1500 BP. Phase 2, I usually have enough for a Hero, but if not, I stay with Heavy, and use Improved Impact Grenade, Barrage, and Bounty Hunter. I prefer defending the right side hangar (right side from Rebel spawn), as its a bit more open, and easier to defend. Once I can get a Hero, I usually choose Luke, but you can choose whoever. By that point, my team usually wins. If we get pushed back to Phase 3, I'm hopefully still my Hero, and I'm guarding the center, and left objectives (from Rebel spawn). And hopefully by that point we've won. I don't have much specifics for Rebel side Phase 3, since I hardly ever get to that point as defense.


    Empire: I love playing the Empire on this map. Phase 1 I either play Officer, Heavy, or Specialist, though I don't have any specific loadouts for them. Pretty simple, just defend the Walkers, push forward to take out Rebels with launchers, and if possible, get a Tauntaun. Tauntauns are actually amazing, and earn loads of BP. If I have enough points at the end of Phase 1, I usually pick Iden, as its one of the easiest phases for me to get Pulse Cannon kills with, and her TL-50 can get loads of kills in the close quarters of the hangars. I prefer to go after the right side hangar first (right side from Empire spawn), as its very close quarters, which again, is good for Iden's TL-50, but she needs to be weary of her health. If I'm not a Hero, I play as Heavy, go right side, and crouch under the Y-Wing to pick off kills. Once that side is captured, I go back outside to get to the other hangar, instead of running through the middle inside. Capturing that hangar tends to be pretty easy after taking the right side. Now for Phase 3, if I'm Iden, I go for the left most objective, and work my way towards the right side from there after blowing it up. But, if I haven't had a Hero by that point, but I can now, I ALWAYS choose Vader. He's just amazing at that last stage of Hoth. If I pick him, I do the opposite, and go far right to start, and work my way towards the left. It works almost every time.


    Anyways, that's what I got, hopefully some of it helps!
  • As Empire, there's a hill on the far left of the map that's great for sniping at the beginning. You can't be flanked and can duck up and down the ridge picking people off. The only thing that ever kills me there are pilots in ships.

    As rebels, if you can get on one of those radar shaped guns every time the AtAt is weak and shoot it you can rack up lots of points.
  • Not much to say aside from play the objectives and minimize your sight lines so you don't get sniped. Here is a random Hoth game assaulting as a heavy.

  • play as heavy and just keep setting up the ion turret. that thing can easily get alot of kills on a big open map like that, also use the turrets that are on the map. I can quite a few kills with them each tims I play. and then apart from that just keep your eyes open and constantly checking your surroundings for any enemy troopers
  • Start as a rebel, run left until u are parallel with the downed walker and jump in the turret. You can then take out the snipers that line up behind the downed walker.. You'll be on the way to getting the AT-ST which you can dominate and help keep the hangers under control for you team. Jump out when that phase ends and grab yourself a hero.

    Simples.
