Hi guys,

I though I would make this thread giving tips to help players love playing with Palpatine more, and how with these few tips, you can really make a difference with the old man.

Tip n°1:

-Dare! Just because he isn't a long range Villain, that doesn't mean you shouldn't show yourself.

When attacking, don't just stay on the ground, use the force my friend!

Float around, go over Heroes, MOVE! this will make you so much more harder to hit.

Tip n°2:

Use Force Dash the smart way, when you're in the heat of the battle, and you're out of lightning, use the Force Dash UPWARDS, it will confuse your ennemies and allow you to flee.

Tip n°3:

Use Chain Lightning in the right order,

Use Chain Lightning and make the most of those few milliseconds of stun to light up your ennemy with your entire Lightning Attack bar!


Tip n°4:

Use the Shields !

Use the Shields to protect yourself and at the same time attack, as your lightning goes through the Shields but not blaster fire.


Here's some footage demonstrating these tips in action:





Hope this helps a few of you with Palpatine,

Thanks :)

    I have to admit I normally shy away from using the Emperor, however after trying out these tips I can honestly say that I will no longer shy away from using him now. So thanks @Anoh !

    Not really - I pick him in supremacy and can dominate - 25-30 kills at least easily. He's the best villain for me to use.

    I wasn't using the dash vertically. Tried out your tips last night in HvV and did a lot better than I usually do. Only got killed as him once all night.

    Thanks for the tips!

    Don't forget to use that health token... You only used it twice that whole round lol. That and you went solo for most of it so you couldn't heal anyone else either.

    It's still an impressive vid but you got lucky that you didn't get outnumbered after you left your team. And that Nien didn't notice you creeping towards him lol.

  • How can you use your entire lightning bar on a single unit? Always thought you must use the Lightning like a semi auto rifle !?

    Obviously I didn't include the Health Token as a Tip as it is pretty obvious.

    No you can hold down R2 on the PS4 to spray Lightning like a stream

    Very nice useing force dash on a diagonal angle is a great idea and brilliant on vertical levels

    Many people also forget about the stun of chain lightning and that how you can jump and lightning at the same time.

    I would add only 1 tip press the health token button as much as you can. (Don't if you have full health of course) and even if you don't need it try to get a teammate to take it ;)
