Melee Reinforcement in the new trailer??

Could we be getting a new Reinforcement? Or is this a replacement for the Wookie? New starcard? Phasma Buff?

  • I believe that it is a new star card, as I think that if it was a reinforcement, it would have a shield as well, being reminiscent of the Coruscant Guard Riot Troopers during The Clone Wars
  • I saw this too. If it's a new melee Reinforcement, exciting (I doubt it's a replacement Enforcer, although there is a distinct lack of Wookiees in the trailer (which is interesting for other reasons), because it doesn't really fit with any Enforcer abilities). If it's a new Star Card, also exciting, because that means there's a possibility of new star cards for all classes in the future and suggests that there may be at least one added to all classes, unless it switches out an existing card. Either way, I am definitely looking forward to this update.
    @UrbanGlitch I do agree that from the trailer it looks like it may well be a star card for Assault or possibly Officer as it looks like we're getting armoured Officers for Geonosis at least if not the other maps, given the lack of other equipment and the 212th skin on the trooper, but it could also be that it's an ability of a new reinforcement where it gets out this baton. Perhaps even like the Trench Raider from Battlefield 1, with a heavy pistol, one-hit club, and increased health and speed? Even as a pick-up from the ground rather than a menu option where you switch out your kit, like in BF1? Unlikely, sure, but it would be pretty cool to see in Battlefront.

    Definitely. Why didn't I see that before!

  • It's the same baton and animation seen in the campaign being used by AI Stormtroopers and First Order troopers.
    No reason to believe at this stage that this is anything more than an animation being applied to a clone trooper for a non-gameplay cinematic scene in a trailer.

    That's what I've just thought

    Definitely a crashed Speeder. I don't understand how people can think it's a melee animation, when it's clearly a crashed speeder.
  • I would be ecstatic for a new Enforcer class.
