Blast is a team deathmatch mode in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II. In both games, two teams fight to be the first to reach 100 kills.

Star Wars Battlefront II Edit

Objective Edit

In Battlefront II, two teams of eight players fight to be the first to reach 100 kills. The player earns Battle Points for eliminating enemies and can use these to play as powerful special units besides the normal SWBFII Class Assault Icon Assault, SWBFII Class Heavy Icon Heavy, SWBFII Class Officer Icon Officer, and SWBFII Class Specialist Icon Specialist classes. Each player is placed in a four-man squad and squad mates can spawn on each other.

Star Wars Battlefront Edit

Objective Edit

Two teams of 10 players each (for a total of 20 players) are battling each other for victory.

In order to win a match of Blast, the players have to hunt down and kill members of the opposing team while avoiding being killed themselves.

The team that first reaches the score limit, 100 kills, will be victorious. The score counter at the top of the screen shows both teams' progress towards victory. Should neither side have acquired 100 kills before the time limit, whichever team that had the most kills will win. If both have an exacting number of kills, a draw will be issued.

If a player scores more kills than anyone else in the match, they will unlock the "Playing the Objective" Achievement. This can also be awarded to other players who have the same exact kill count. Prior to the January 2016 Update, a bug relating to this achievement prevented it from being rewarded despite the criteria being fulfilled.
