Revision as of 03:41, March 30, 2020

Blinded is a status effect in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II that momentarily disorients the player by affecting what they see in-game.

Star Wars Battlefront

Caused by

Flash Grenade

Effect

The player's screen turns bright white and the frame at the instant they were blinded stays on-screen for a few seconds.

Indicators

The player knows when they have blinded an enemy when they receive a hit marker indication after their Flash Grenade/Sonic Imploder detonates.

Strategy

This Star Card is best used around corners where enemies might be camping. Note that the player can blind themselves with their own Flash Grenade. The player must be quick, as enemies are Blinded for only a short time and the enemy's movements are not restricted, allowing them to pre-fire or roll away to safety.

Updates

December 01, 2015 Update

  • Blinding a player using the Flash Grenade now gives a hit marker indication.

Outer Rim Update

  • Added a screenshot component to give [blinding] an extra disorienting effect

Star Wars Battlefront II

Caused by

SWBFII DICE Ability Card Officer - Improved Flash Grenade large

Effect

The player's screen becomes blurred for a few seconds.

Indicators

The player knows when enemies are blinded when:

  • The word "BLINDED" appears above their player model
  • The enemy tries to cover their eyes with their arm

Strategy

This status effect is most effective around corners and at capture points, blinding enemies that might be camping there. The Assault's Flash Pistol is designed for one-on-one engagements and does not cause damage, while the Officer's Flash Grenades are most effective against groups of enemies. They also inflict a small amount of damage.

Updates

1.2 Patch

  • Heroes can no longer deactivate their lightsaber while blinded.

Battle of Geonosis Update

  • Removed movement impairing effects that would occur when affected by the Officer's Flash Grenade.
