Star Wars Battlefront Wiki

The February 12th Patch is a minor update for DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II.[2] The update went live Monday, February 12th, 2020, following the usual deployment times for updates.[1][2]

Notable changes include:

  • Damage reduction of Darth Vader reduced while in Choke
  • Lowered the heat cost for the spool-up functionality on the Heavy Trooper’s Sentry abilities.

A Community Transmission that details the update was available on the defunct Battlefront Forums.

Release notes[]

  • Fixed an issue where the boarding cinematic would be visible when completing the final objective on any of the Capital Ships on Jakku.
  • Fixed an issue that would allow the First Order Jet Trooper to dash more than 2 times.
  • Fixed an issue where spamming both the main fire and secondary fire keys for BB-8 would drain the stamina quickly, without dealing the appropriate amount of damage
  • Fixed an issue where BB-8’s Spinner Star Card would grant 20 seconds of cooldown reduction, instead of 10, on Epic rarity.
  • Fixed an issue where there would be no audio playing when inspecting the BB-8 and BB-9E Voice Lines in the Front End menu.
  • Fixed an issue where BB-8 and BB-9E would eventually play the wrong VO lines when they were disrupted.
  • Various collision, VFX and lighting improvements on the MC85 Star Cruiser and Resurgent-class Star Destroyer.
  • Lowered the heat cost for the spool-up functionality on the Heavy Trooper’s Sentry abilities.
  • Fixed an issue where General Grievous’ Claw Rush could completely drain the stamina of an opponent.
  • Reduced the gain in Battle Points by 50% for the Ovissian Gunner, Caphex Spy, Sith Trooper and First Order Jet Trooper, to be consistent with the other Reinforcements.
  • Made improvements to resolve issues with hit registration, despite dodging Lightsaber and melee attacks
  • Fixed an issue that would block the VO from the emotes of the Republic Officer on Kamino or Geonosis.
  • Fixed a localization issue with the message “First Order Jet Trooper Available” being too long for the kill screen in Japanese.
  • Made improvements to resolve visual issues with textures popping-in, when transporting to the capital ships on Jakku, Takodana and Ajan Kloss.
  • Lowered the damage reduction on Darth Vader while using Choke from 75% to 20%.
  • Updated the mode description for Ewok Hunt.

Known issues[]

  • Due to a mistake in coding, the damage reduction value of Darth Vader while in Choke was actually increased to 75%; a server-side update on the 18th changed it back to its intended value.[3]
