Chewbacca is a playable Rebel and Light Side Hero character in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II.

Star Wars BattlefrontEdit

Overview Edit

Chewbacca made his debut in Star Wars Battlefront in the Death Star expansion pack as a Rebel Alliance hero. He 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.

Abilities Edit

Chewbacca's trait 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.
  • Ground Slam: Releases a ground slam which causes enemy players to die within his radius upon impact. Note that Chewbacca will briefly become immobile, and susceptible to enemy fire.

Star Wars Battlefront II Edit

"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

Overview Edit

Chewbacca is a ferocious hero, and can bash all types of enemy targets. His bowcaster is a hard-hitting weapon, as 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. 

Although Chewbacca can dish out high damage, he is a very big target due to his size. He also does not have a way 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.
