The Artillery class is a Vehicle Reinforcement class in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II that specialises in either supporting their team or overwhelming enemies with unrivalled firepower. Each faction has different Artillery units, and their weapons and abilities vary between them. Unlike other vehicles and classes, the Artillery class does not contain any Star Cards. However, the Artillery class can be levelled up through experience earned and time played with the class.
Vehicles of the Artillery class are either massive, ground-based behemoths or high flying gunships. Unlike other vehicles, Artillery units cannot be piloted by players and are instead on-rails, with exceptions of the AT-TE Walker, which is controlled by the player completely. Players can only control the weapons systems of the other Artillery vehicles. Some Artillery vehicles are featured as objectives in Galactic Assault.
- Galactic Republic
- Rebel Alliance
- Galactic Empire
- The Artillery class is the only class in the game that does not have Star Cards, and thus does not earn Skill Points. However, it can be levelled up, which rewards the player with credits.
- With the exception of the AT-TE, Artillery vehicles cannot be fully operated by players.
- Some Artillery vehicles are featured as objectives in Galactic Assault which must be escorted in a phase across several checkpoints.
- The two factions of the First Order–Resistance war are the only factions that do not possess Artillery units: the First Order and the Resistance. The First Order does have to escort two AT-M6 walkers in the first phase on Crait: Abandoned Rebel Outpost in Galactic Assault, but they are not playable.
