"Count Dooku was a Sith Lord and the leader of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Once trained by Grand Master Yoda, he turned his back on the Jedi Order and devoted himself to the dark side."
— In-game description

Count Dooku, also known as Darth Tyranus, is a Separatist Hero in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II.[1] He arrived on January 23, 2019, as part of the Darth Tyranus Update[2][3][4] He originally cost 35,000 credits to unlock but this cost was removed in the Capital Supremacy Update.

OverviewEdit

Count Dooku is a formidable and elegant duelist. He is mainly a close-ranged hero. He can swing and block longer than most other lightsaber wielders, possessing a high amount of stamina. Count Dooku can also dodge more frequently than other heroes, possessing three dodges instead of two. This allows him to avoid more attacks and outmaneuver his opponents more effectively.

His lightsaber attacks can be made even deadlier with his Duelist ability, which will increase the damage of his lightsaber and his swing speed. Combining Duelist with the Initiative, Masterful Duelist, and the Dominance Star Card, along with Expose Weakness, allows Count Dooku to deal very high damage to enemies.

Lightning Stun knocks enemies into the ground. It is able to kill three of the four base classes, and low-health Heroes. The damage drops off the more targets it affects.

Expose Weakness stops an opponent from sprinting, and cancels any extra health, making them more vulnerable to Count Dooku's deadly lightsaber attacks.
