Chewbacca is the Wookiee companion of Han Solo from Episode IV: A New Hope. He is also seen aiding Yoda in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith at the battle on Kashyyyk. Chewbacca packs some major firepower and is a great shot with almost any gun. He helps the protagonists of the films at Death Star: Interior, Tatooine: Jabba's Palace, Endor: Bunker, Hoth: Echo Base, and many other places where the Rebel Alliance needs his help. In the game, Chewbacca has tons of health, more than any of the other heroes, who are all very tough, and his bowcaster packs quite the punch. He can even pick off enemies from long-range with his Remote Rockets (particularly useful in XL, which is PC-only). Surprisingly, Chewbacca is one of the weakest heroes in Battlefront 2 in terms of firepower because his bowcaster is standard, his Remote Rockets are useful only in certain circumstances, and he is very slow. Chewbacca, sadly, all too often ends up as cannon fodder. To make up for that though, he is incredibly hard to kill, because he can sustain large amounts of damage. If one uses Chewie in Hero Assault, he can find a small space to hide (near a Ammo Droid) where he can unleash remote rockets for kicks. This is incredibly fun and should be tried at least once.
