What To Do About Malfunctioning Droids in SWBF II

There are some cool actionable hidden items in SWBF II like the bridge on the Death Star and the band (play the same song!) in the cantina that add an element of fun to the game for me. I'm sure I might be missing some so please share if you know of any others.

We also have the ability to man turrets, or on Hoth to ride the Taun Tauns. This got me thinking (dangerous) about the astromechs and viper droids I've seen on some maps. I’d like us to have the ability to activate these droids and have the droids function as they did in SWBF I. In SWBF I droids were great to have working for you and could be a challenge when you rushed up on an enemy droid. ION weapons shined against droids in SWBF I and they could do the same in SWBF II.

Droid activation could be a function of one class or give every class the ability to activate and use the droids located across the maps. If the ability is class specific then there could also be an ability to upgrade droids (damage ability/range/active time) and also hack the enemies’ droids and have that droid work against their own faction. Hacked droids could remain active until they are destroyed by ION weapons or there could be place a timer on them.

I know there are more important items in the game that are being addressed but the ability to use droids would be a new element of the game that I think troopers would enjoy. Hopefully the activation of droids is something the developers will consider going forward.

Activate or leave them in deep sleep mode?

  • I'm all for it, especially if one of the droids you could activate on the Death Star would be IG-88.
  • At least no one is calling for a to nerf the droids.....yet.

    I like the idea of “droid activation”

  • there has already been strong hints (dennis) we will be getting droidekas for separatist maps, so that is a start. could also do something like the spawn on hero funciton that was in bf2015. if you are specific heros you could get a droid to spawn with you (another player would spawn as the droid).
  • Great idea.

    That Specialist rework was disappointing.

    Yes please for the droid heroes. It would be awesome to get a droid her/villan in the future.

    It's a fantastic idea to be able to combat-activate the droids that are scattered throughout the maps. I support this.

    Too kind. TY.





  • These are the droids were looking for.

    Activate the droids.
  • Yah! I gotta admit that the lack of droids, aside from the occasional Gonk Droid or R5-D4 listlessly meandering about in GA, kinda' leaves a big element of what makes Star Wars STAR WARS out of the equation. Plus, I kinda' miss our Main Menu Droid busily beeping in the background... and there's no sign of C-3PO & R2-D2 anywhere.

    WAT GIVZ? :neutral:

    Thanks. Just curious as to why you don’t want to replace Leia’s flash grenade with R2D2. Feel it would make her op?

    Would be nice to get a LS hero with a droid since the DS has two heroes with droids. Even Krennic had a droid in SWBF 15 with a shield and dioxsis. Why no LS droids DICE?

    Maybe Anakin gets R2D2.
  • I'd love to see something like this...
  • @F8RGE Any plans to add hero droids (R2D2, BB8 to name a few) or have standard droids like astromechs and viper droids activated? Also why no droids for LS heroes?
  • Droids.
  • The addition of droids is necessary.
    We need more of these details.
