Does Boba Fett's blaster only fire hot dogs/balloon animals/ill intentions?

I'm not sure what's coming out of it, but I'm pretty sure it's not dangerous.

I tried to get the blaster heroes milestone last night and gave up. His left and right abilities are useless, from what I can see, and that's with having the card that gives him extra rockets, upgraded to green.

His blaster seems more like a nerf blaster. It would be more dangerous if it were firing fluorescent lightbulbs.

I've heard he was nerfed, but geeeeeeeeez. The favorite action figure of my childhood has been reduced to "menacing cheerleader" status.

Can anyone tell me how to git gud?

    Thank the people that complained about him. Even before his nerf I was never a fan of him. Now I’m just not interested in playing him altogether. I’d prefer to play as an accurate assault grunt.

    first off. very funny post. I like yer metaphors or whatever.

    Second off, where I am coming from is I prefer Boba over iden and bossk. I aint playing no damn dinosaur lizard in a space suit. and by that i mean iden.

    Third, yeah his blaster from medium to long ranges, dont waste your time. His melee does 100 dmg. it cannot be used while E is active. the upgraded rocket barrage is good against heroes. I know, i know, the spread is about the same as the blaster from distance. get closer, but not too close! boba has a delicate jetpack...

    It's really bad. I didn't get a single kill. A couple assists, but that's it. And zero credits, of course. I gave up.

    It's not the first time I've tried him either. I might've given Luke or Lando a mild headache, but somebody with a lightsaber would always finish the job, leaving me bountiless.

    His reticle is terrible too, especially while flying (which is ironic).

    None of those tips will save the broken state boba is in now. HvV, the rockets are completely negated by two consecutive doges. They're pathetic now, and with such a trash card line up your forced to take the extra rockets as the base ability can hardly kill any trooper, let alone an enforcer. His blaster sucks, thats undeniable, it should just be a re-skinned blurrg like in the last game. Concussion rocket is easily fought through and his nameplate is till easily targetable. Low HP with no sustain. The Jetpack is too slow to evade anyone that can aim and it also too gimps your accuracy, and is only really effective against saber users.

    Boba needs HP on kill, Damage reduction when flying, not just during rocket barrage, a reverse to his nerf on barrage, and a bluurg like blaster rifle.

    I’ve been getting in the habit of picking boba every time I have enough points, I like the challenge and everything can be deadly still when used correctly. Here’s my guide for Mr. Fett:

    Hope this helps!


    Thanks a bunch for the awesome write-up! I didn't even realize he HAD a melee attack, cos I never managed to pull it off. And yes, I was trying to shoot heroes with my blaster from the great blue yonder, and it did _not_ work! :D

    Glad you liked! I tried to lighten my complaining with some colorful analogies (at least I think that's what they were?).

    I haven't unlocked Idenzilla, so no worries there.

    What did you mean by "it cannot be used while E is active."? He can't suck a pacifier and make flames at the same time?

    Thanks folks! :D

  • I don't know for sure, but if you fired a hot dog at a high enough velocity it would probably be pretty dangerous. You may need to freeze it to stop it from disintegrating, but with the right setup I'm quite certain a hotdog could be a deadly weapon.

    Boba's EE-3 deals 105 DPS if all three shots hit not including the Head-Shot modifier

    Boba's default Rocket Barrage deals out 370 Damage. Which is quite a ways up from Han's 250-Damage or so Detonate Charge and Lando's 200-Damage Sharp-Shot

    With Anti-Hero Rockets fully upgraded to purple Default RB dishes out 490 damage if all five rockets hit. That leaves a very damaged Luke or a absolutely crippled Han Solo at 110 HP left and Leia's not much better off

    With Intense Barrage fully upgraded to purple Rocket Barrage will deal 702-Damage. Which will one shot everything but a Rey, Presence Yoda, or Max-HP using Blaster Hero. With Anti-Hero Rockets fully upgraded to purple combined with Intense Barrage this will upgrade the DPS of the rockets to 882-Damage effectively killing everything in the game but a Presence Infused Yoda who will be left with 18-HP if he didn't have the extra health card at which case he would still be left below 100-HP

  • They designed him all wrong.

    He is very dependent on the rocket barrage which got nerfed.

    Concussion rocket is terrible.

    For the Hunt never even reveals enemies anymore.

    His health regen is also way too low. 150 health regen while Palpatine gets like 300 and and can restore health? Wow.

    The only time I do good with him, I've had to try very hard to avoid damage and out fun my opponent's. It's not easy to hit shots while flying, but it's the only way.
  • Nice analysis, but that utility doesn't carry over to Galactic assault where boba is undeniably not fine. You probably couldn't even get over a 30 kill streak with him there, let alone me. Barrage needs a rebuff, and all that damage is easily negated by rolling consecutively twice.

    Boba's garbage and needs a bluurg rifle like in the last game
    Heal on kill
    Barrage to be deadly again with large aoe
    and concussion missle to actually slow all affected targets.

    So you're saying I need to upgrade my hotdog to purple before I can unleash it on the other heroes, without them laughing at me?

    Maybe he should consider a career change?

    Seriously though, when I tried him it was in HvV. I don't really play GA yet. I just dabble in the other "little" modes when I'm not playing SA.

    To the op, his ee3 is a trash bin for sure. I think they gave him the nerf gun Gamestop is selling lol. Really that’s all he’s lacking imo, a good ee3. Revert it back to how it was in bf15 and he rocks the house again imo.

  • Ok 1st boba definitely does not need his rockets buffed at all. Upgraded the rockets still take half a heros life for an ability that is ridiculous. His rockets need to stay were they are every one who complains aww he sucks now are those troll people who exclusively killed people with the barage in H v V. He needs slight hp buff and health on kill. Concussion rocket needs to have better stun effect. And for the hunt needs to work properly. That's it
  • 105 damage is way too damn low, the bluurg might as well be a hero weapon at this point.

    He could be better that’s no question, but this playstyle works very well for me in GA and HvV. 40+ streaks are not uncommon in my hands but I won’t let my ability speak for the character. Boba needs some Dev love right now in his career, his rifle could use an accuracy buff, concussion rocket needs a buff to at least slow movement/disable jumping, and his for the hunt needs the bugs fixed. Otherwise he’s fine. And roll invincibility is being fixed next patch so that’s soon a nonissue. He was OP at launch and now that rocket barrage is how it’s supposed to be no one knows how to play him without that crutch. It’s like the emperor all over again where no one knew how to use him so he got buffed when he didn’t need it. Boba doesn’t need that much of a buff to do really well. He is an evasive ambush hero, not a blunt force instrument like Vader. Use him as intended and prosper.

    If someone else already asked, I apologize. Is there somewhere I can go to review the damage output for each weapon? I feel it would be quite useful to know what kind of damage each weapon actually deals out.
  • and all that damage is easily negated by rolling consecutively twice.

    That would be the problem of rolling / dodging giving you damage reduction as the animation lasts. I really wish it wasn't in the game.

    I know of one other user who would share a similar opinion.

    Man! Could this game get any more broken?

    Like Boba, cool character, he's one of my favorite in the films but lacks in-game. Not good with him myself because his controls feel a bit inverted compared to other characters. No zoom either and he's the furthest from opponents. So I'd like a zoom and better feeling controls. He's the last hero I'll perfect and complete in Milestones as a result..
    Let's all remember that Luke's hand didn't clank to the stone when he vanished....Everything organic disappears as a force ghost. The in-organic stays...


  • Hot dogs are pretty deadly tbh.


    In seriousness, already confirmed buff to EE-3 in the patch.

  • His blaster is fine, I don't think it needs any real major buff.
    But one thing I do have a problem with is its range, I cant seem to damage anyone from longer ranges like I can with other heroes.

  • Use blaster disabler concussion Star Card in GA.

    Fire it into groups you intend to attack, their blasters will be disabled long enough for you to do some damage.

    I do pretty decent with Boba in GA.


    I see youtube video after video and barely anyone uses that star card, it's underrated in GA.

    YOU DISABLE BLASTERS with it , think about it.

    I can't wait to see what they do for Boba in the next patch.
