Chewbacca is a Rebel Alliance Hero in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront. In Star Wars Battlefront II, Chewbacca returns as a Hero for all Light Side factions.

Star Wars BattlefrontEdit

Chewbacca is a Rebel Alliance Hero in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront, available to owners of the Death Star expansion pack.

OverviewEdit

Chewbacca is extremely effective in close-quarters, as his Bowcaster bolts have large splash damage. His hero trait, Furious Firing, increases the amount of bolts he can fire from his Bowcaster at any one time from one at the base trait level to four at rank three.

AbilitiesEdit

Chewbacca's trait, Furious Firing, entails more Bowcaster bolts accumulating with each kill.

  • Multi-Bolts: Chewbacca's Bowcaster enables the ability to double his amount of bolts he was shooting for a limited time. For example, if Chewbacca at a given time has 4 Bowcaster bolts when this ability is activated, it will double, giving it 8 bolts. Chewbacca's Bowcaster will initially fire 1 bolt, so the ability will make it fire 2.
  • Mighty Roar: Upon activation, Chewie leaves a loud roar that gives players around his radius an increased armor rating, suppressing enemy fire, as well as effectively granting him the effects of Berserker trait rank 3 giving a 50% blaster damage bonus while hip-firing.
  • Ground Slam: Releases a ground slam which causes enemy players to die within his radius upon impact and stuns villains. Note that Chewbacca will briefly become immobile, and susceptible to enemy fire.

UpdatesEdit

September 28, 2016 Update

  • Chewbacca's Bowcaster - Cut the damage against AT-AT's by 75%.

Death Star Update

  • Added.

Star Wars Battlefront IIEdit

"Chewbacca uses his Bowcaster to fire charged shots at his enemies and his physical strength to pummel and smash close targets. He is hardy enough to withstand even the most powerful attacks."
— In-game Description

Chewbacca returns in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II, as a Hero for all Light Side factions: the Galactic Republic, the Rebel Alliance and the Resistance.

OverviewEdit

Chewbacca is a ferocious hero, and can take on all types of enemy targets. His bowcaster is a hard-hitting weapon, as in addition to no heat buildup (compared to the Wookiee Warrior) it's able to one-shot any of the default trooper classes depending on where the shots land and how much the bowcaster is charged up. However, it does suffer at range and cannot fire as fast as other blasters. Though it has splash damage, aiming is key. Since The Age of Rebellion Update, zoomed-in shots without Furious Bowcaster active cause a small explosion.

Chewbacca's Stun Grenade is able to immobilize enemies, leaving them open for damage; a star card can be equipped to make them much more vulnerable, and larger area and longer durations are available.

Although Chewbacca can dish out high damage, he is a very big target due to his size. Though he has a way to increase max Health and grant damage reduction through Star Cards, he also does not have one to increase his health regeneration, so he is very susceptible to damage. Because of this and with him being more effective at close range engagements, Chewbacca can lose health quickly in situations.
