Emperor Palpatine as he appears in Battlefront II.

Emperor Palpatine, also known as Darth Sidious or the Emperor, is an Imperial Hero in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and returns as a Dark Side Hero for the Galactic Empire and First Order in Star Wars Battlefront II.

Star Wars BattlefrontEdit

"I will show them the true nature of the Force"
— Intro Dialogue

Emperor Palpatine is an Imperial hero in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront. A support hero, Palpatine can help turn the tide of battle with his combat and support abilities. His hero equivalent on the Rebel Alliance is Princess Leia.

OverviewEdit

Emperor Palpatine's basic attack is Force Lightning. This short-range attack fires a stream of lightning towards enemies in front of Palpatine, inflicting damage at a constant rate that depletes enemies of their health.

Palpatine's jump is also augmented by the Force, allowing Palpatine, similar to his apprentice Darth Vader, to jump higher in the air than other heroes. Unlike in the original games, Palpatine does not hover constantly. Instead of a regular jumping ability, Palpatine will instead use the Force to "fly" several feet off the ground and slowly descend back to the ground afterwards. While doing this he can still use his Force Dash ability upward to gain altitude quickly before he begins to descend. is unique jump allows more altitude compared to other heroes, although it is slower.

When Emperor Palpatine is on the battlefield, two players can spawn as Imperial Royal Guards. They are equipped with a more powerful T-21 Heavy Blaster and, as abilities, can use Smart Rockets and Homing Shots. A maximum of two Imperial Guards can be on the map at a time. In Heroes vs. Villains, Royal Guard spawns are limited to two per round. In larger game modes, more than two can spawn per game. Prior to the Bespin Update, Palpatine's bodyguards were instead Shock Troopers, though they share the same abilities and statistics to the current Royal Guards.

Palpatine can also use the Force to block attacks in a similar fashion to other Force wielders and even block lightsaber strikes. Palpatine's blocking ability absorbs all blaster shots directed towards him, however, it does not reflect the shots towards the player's crosshair as is the case with Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, instead the shots are simply absorbed while any damage dealt by them will be negated. Normal blaster shots will be blocked with no damage dealt, explosive projectiles such as Bowcasters, Homing Shots and Explosive Shots, will be blocked but Palpatine will still suffer splash damage while solid projectile weapons such as the Cycler Rifle or Scatter Gun, cannot be blocked at all.

Abilities Edit

Emperor Palpatine has three abilities:

  • Chain Lightning: This fires a single large burst of electricity with a greater range than the default force lightning. When fired, the Chain lightning will attach itself to a target within range and then spread to all nearby valid targets as well, killing them instantly in most cases. If used against a hero, the ability will deal high damage and briefly stun them. This ability briefly immobilises the Emperor upon use.
  • Force Dash: This move allows Palpatine to quickly dash forward in the direction he is moving. This can be used to move into range or fly up to a high point. This manoeuvre appeared in Star Wars: Episode 3: Revenge of The Sith.
  • Imperial Resources: This support ability spawns a basic power-up for all infantry, barring Palpatine's Royal Guards. On Heroes vs. Villains and Hero Hunt, in lieu of spawning this, a Hero Health Pickup is spawned, obtainable by any hero (even those of the enemy team). This gives the Emperor up to 50% health, although this varies for other heroes, such as Darth Vader, whose health is naturally higher than that of his fellow heroes, causing him to only regain around 20-30% health. The health pickup is also spawned on the offline modes of Skirmish and Battles. The pickups can be stolen by the Rebels so it is important not to leave the pickup sitting around.

Trait Edit

Emperor Palpatine was given a hero trait, along with the other vanilla heroes in Battlefront, as a part of the Scarif DLC patch. Emperor Palpatine's trait gives him an increased amount of lightning sustainability with each kill or damage dealt to opposing heroes. This means that as Emperor Palpatine increases his trait level, he will be able to use his main lightning attack for a greater period of time. As Emperor Palpatine's trait level increases, his lightning usage rate will decrease. In addition, his lightning recharge rate will increase. With this trait, Emperor Palpatine will be able to use his lightning attack to a much greater extent against his enemies, thus, making him a greater attack threat on the Battlefront to pair with his characteristics as a support hero as well.

UpdatesEdit

Star Wars Battlefront II Edit

"Emperor Palpatine eliminates whole groups of enemies at a time using his powerful manipulation of the Force to slow, stun, and pummel them with lightning."
— In-game description

Emperor Palpatine returns in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II as a Hero for the Galactic Empire and the First Order.

OverviewEdit

"Be Menacing"
— Star Wars Battlefront II website

The sinister ruler of the Galactic Empire and Final Order is a daunting opponent. The Emperor's mastery of the dark side allows him to wield terrifying powers against the forces of good. Compared to the previous game, his main force lightning attack has been drastically weakened. It now deals far less damage, runs out of energy faster and does not prevent enemies from retaliating while they are being damaged by it. Palpatine is also now completely unable to block attacks directed towards him, making him weaker in a straight-up fight.

Palpatine's force lightning attack behaves a little differently in that it is now a two-part attack. Palpatine can now cast force lightning with both of his hands individually, both the left and right hand have separate overheat mechanisms, meaning that alternating back and forth between the left and right hands allows the player to sustain a constant barrage of lightning, albeit with a far weaker damage profile. To compensate for this however, using lightning with only one hand allows the lightning to spread to multiple targets standing near each other. As a third alternative, the player can also cast force lightning using both hands simultaneously, providing double damage in exchange for a noticeably faster overheat.

Palpatine's ability setup has also been changed. He retains the Chain lighting ability but is no longer able to spawn health pickups or use Force Dash. Those abilities have been replaced with Dark Aura and Electrocute, and the latter has been replaced with a much more usable substitute for the combat roll.

In-game HintsEdit

GeneralEdit

"All heroes can dodge or evade. Use this to avoid damage and open distance between you and your enemy."
— First hint
"Dodge is most effective at avoiding lightsaber attacks and opening space between you and the attacker."

"Heroes can only block attacks from the front. Try to position around them and hit them from behind to be effective."
— Third hint
"Each time a blocking hero deflects damage or swings their lightsaber, they lose stamina. When out of stamina, heroes are unable to deflect or trigger a closing strike."
— Fourth hint
"Heroes have strengths and weaknesses. Hone your skills by playing Arcade."
— Fifth hint
"Use Star Cards to ensure your hero experience is personally tailored."
— Sixth hint
"Heroes will only regenerate a limited amount of health after taking damage."
— Seventh hint

SpecificEdit

"Using both of the Emperor’s hands together will deliver a much more damaging lightning attack--but at the cost of a greater drain on the player’s Stamina."
— First hint
"The Emperor’s Dark Aura slows and damages targets within its area of effect."
— Second hint
"The Emperor is at his most powerful when he is engaging with multiple enemies at close range"

TriviaEdit

Star Wars BattlefrontEdit

  • Emperor Palpatine is voiced by Sam Witwer, who has previously voiced him in The Force Unleashed and Star Wars Rebels.
  • Emperor Palpatine's theme music comes from the song, Battle of Endor II Medley from the Return of the Jedi OST.
  • Similar to his appearance in Return of the Jedi, Palpatine does not use a lightsaber but in Pandemic Studios' Star Wars: Battlefront II, he does.
    • In addition to his main lightsaber, Emperor Palpatine also used several backup lightsabers throughout his life. He however, greatly disliked using lightsabers of any kind, preferring to use force-based attacks instead, which is the reason why Palpatine's lightsaber is not included with him in this game and the next.

Star Wars Battlefront IIEdit

  • Sam Witwer once again reprises his role as Emperor Palpatine.
  • Like the previous game, Emperor Palpatine's theme music comes from the song, Battle of Endor II Medley from the Return of the Jedi OST. Similarly, he does not wield his lightsaber, preferring to utilize a variety of Force-based attacks.
  • After the Hero Starfighters Update in July 2018, Emperor Palpatine was temporarily removed from the game for repairs via a "killswitch" after his lightning attacks were broken; in addition to being able to shoot through walls again, the auto targeting/auto aiming of his lightning attacks were deemed too strong, and as a result, Palpatine was removed from the game in order to be rebalanced. "Kill switches" for heroes were implemented in the behind-the-scenes of the game by the developers at EA DICE after an exploit in Battlefront allowed Lando Calrissian to shoot his homing power blast infinitely with no cooldown.
  • In the campaign. Palpatine is also responsible for Operation: Cinder.
