"General Grievous has more damage reduction while CLAW RUSH is active."
— In-game description

Cowardly Retreat is a Boost Card for the villain General Grievous in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II that can be unlocked for 1 Skill Point starting when General Grievous has been leveled up to Level 5.


Cowardly Retreat allows General Grievous to be more resistant to damage while using his Claw Rush ability to a maximum of 90% damage reduction.

Often used to escape a bad situation, Claw Rush will prove to be even more effective with this Star Card equipped, especially in modes where the death of Grievous can decide the outcome of a round, such as in Hero Showdown.
