"Battle Damaged," a Rare Appearance for the Separatist hero General Grievous in Battlefront II

An Appearance is a type of cosmetic in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II that determines the look of the player's character. Appearances are based on and inspired by outfits and armor worn by characters in the Star Wars universe. In Battlefront and Battlefront II, Appearances are purchased with Credits.

Star Wars Battlefront[edit | edit source]

Overview[edit | edit source]

Stormtrooper-render.png

In Star Wars Battlefront, players have a separate character in the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire whose head and body they can customize with head and body Appearances.

Head and body Appearances can be bought with Credits. More Appearances become available for purchase as the player increases in Rank.

The player can mix-and-match heads and bodies to create their own unique character, but some head options can only be used on certain bodies and by certain factions. The Rebels can choose from a total of 67 human heads and eight alien head options. For the Galactic Empire, the player can select 18 different heads for their Imperial character if they are using the Death Star Trooper or Imperial Officer bodies. Bodies such as the Scout Trooper and Shock Trooper are hemeted and thus only allow the player to choose if their trooper is male or female.

History[edit | edit source]

At launch, character customization was more limited. The old customization system did not allow the player to use any head Appearance with any body Appearance. The primary method for customizing one's character for both the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire up to the Death Star Update was changing the head on the faction default body Appearance. For the Imperials, this allowed for "helmet-less stormtroopers," or stormtroopers that did not have a helmet on. At this time, the only unlockable body Appearances were the Scout Trooper and Shadow Trooper; they did not have helmet-less options.

The Outer Rim Update added the Weequay head Appearance for the Rebels that changed the head of their Rebel soldier to that of a male Weequay.

The Bespin Update added the Bespin Wing Guard body Appearance for the Rebels and the Shock Trooper body Appearance for the Empire. At this time, the old Appearance system was still in place, resulting in the Bespin Wing Guard body Appearance changing the entire outfit of the Rebel soldier, but the human face was always that of Human 8. The Bespin Wing Guard outfit highlighted the limits of the old customization system: a body Appearance that featured a visible human face would make multiple players with the same skin look like clones of each other.

The customization system was greatly expanded with the subsequent Death Star Update, which added the ability for players to pair different heads with different outfits. This new customization system allowed for the Bespin Wing Guard to exist as a body Appearance that could be paired with any of the heads that the player has unlocked (such as Human 1 or the Zabrak). The Death Star Update also added the X-Wing Pilot and the Rebel Officer body Appearances for the Rebels and Pauldron Stormtroopers, the Death Star Trooper, and the Imperial Officer body Appearances for the Galactic Empire. The option for the player to be a helmet-less stormtrooper was also removed.

On October 31, 2016, the Cybernetic Female head Appearance was made available to all players for free via a server-side update, having been originally added to the game in the Bespin Update but never released.

The Rogue One: Scarif Update added the final skin to the game: the Shoretrooper Captain body Appearance for the Empire, unlocked at Rank 100.

Star Wars Battlefront II[edit | edit source]

Overview[edit | edit source]

Environmental-clutter.png

In Battlefront II, there are Appearances for both the four trooper classes—Assault, Heavy, Officer, and Specialist—as well as most heroes and villains. Appearances can include different human heads and alien species for soldiers and iconic outfits and armors worn by the troopers and characters in the Star Wars canon. Legendary Appearances, the rarest and most expensive of Appearances, can also change other parts of a hero or villain, such as their voice, to match their appearance. Appearances are the only items in the game that can be unlocked with Crystals, though they can also be purchased with Credits at a higher amount. You can also get all appearances (not including pre-ordered skins and event skins) with the Celebration Edition of Battlefront II.

Appearances come in five tiers, the first four in order of rarity and cost: Common, the cheapest at 5,000 Credits or 150 Crystals with only small changes to the trooper or hero, Rare at 20,000 Credits or 500 Crystals, Epic at 40,000 Credits or 1,000 Crystals, and Legendary, with the rarest and most expensive skins due to their extensive changes, at 80,000 Credits or 2,000 Crystals. A fifth tier, Event, was later added and is tied to Appearances that can only be unlocked exclusively during certain in-game special events, and thus cannot be purchased with Credits or Crystals.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Character customization was a major feature in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront, though purchasable skins were not publicly reintroduced into their sequel, Star Wars Battlefront II, until the 2.0 Patch.
    • Prior to the 2.0 Patch, which featured the progression and economies update, some skins were obtained through timed challenges and milestones.
  • Appearances are one of the only few items in the game that can be unlocked with the premium currency, Crystals. They are also not available in Loot Crates but instead are purchased directly. Other cosmetics, those being emotes and Victory Poses, can also be unlocked with Crystals.
  • At launch, when there were little to no Appearances for the various trooper classes, a mod allowed players to equip unreleased Appearances found in the game files, such as various Clone Trooper legions, that were hidden by accessing the, at the time, secret Appearances menu. The method that the mod used to access the secret menu was, however, patched in the 1.0 Patch.
  • Before the Battle on Scarif Update, Ben Walke hinted on Twitter that more Dark Side appearances were coming to Battlefront II. These came in the form of the Old Master appearance for Darth Maul and the Sith Eternal appearance for Emperor Palpatine.
