Star Wars Battlefront Wiki

"Take reduced damage from explosions and toxins."
— In-game description

Bodyguard is a Boost Card in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II that is available to all four trooper classes. The card is unlocked for the Assault class at Level 2, Heavy class at Level 5, Officer class at Level 15, and Specialist class at Level 20.

Information below is outdated. Currently this card decrease damage when you reach "critical health" stage (about 50 healpoints).

Previously: The card gives players explosive damage protection and decreased toxin filter activation time, with the amount increasing the higher the rarity.


Bodyguard is useful in close-quarters situations where the player is more vulnerable to explosives. For example, the second phase of Galactic Assault on Naboo: Theed and the final phase of Kamino: Cloning Facility, can be difficult choke points to breach. A well-orchestrated Sentry from a Heavy equipped with the card will be better suited to dealing with such situations, than an Assault with the Flash Pistol.
