"Separatist forces have laid siege to a Geonosian droid factory occupied by a Republic demolitions crew. With time running out to destroy the facility, the last remaining clone strike team must push back the droids to prevent them from retaking the factory."
— Galactic Assault description

Trippa Hive is a map set on Geonosis in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II, playable in the Clone Wars era. It is a large, ground map available in both multiplayer and Arcade. The map was added in the Battle of Geonosis Update on November 28, 2018 and was the first Clone Wars map to be added as part of the game's live service.[1][2]

OverviewEdit

Geonosis Trippa Hive - Geonosian Statue - Pontus Ryman DICE

A statue of a Geonosian warrior inside the canyons of Trippa Hive.

Trippa Hive is modelled after the numerous hive colonies found on the planet Geonosis, that can be seen throughout the Star Wars universe. These hives were home to thousands of Geonosians, an insectoid species native to the planet, who aided the Separatists in the construction of their Battle Droids. The map can be broken up into three parts: the canyons, the plains, and the core ship perimeter.

The canyons are positioned atop a rocky hill, overlooking much of the vast battlefront beyond them. Behind the canyon entrance, and past the map's boundaries, is the door to Trippa Hive's droid factory: the focal point of Galactic Assault's storyline on this map. Inside the canyons are two winding caves that can be utilized as effective flanking routes in the midst of chaotic close-quarters combat.

A forward command center is located on one side of the canyons whilst on the other, wreckages of fallen AT-TEs and LAAT Gunships serve as grim reminders of the harsh realities of the Clone Wars. A powered-down AT-TE can also be found here in Galactic Assault. Additionally, a variety of crates and barriers provide ample cover for intense firefights all throughout the canyons, as well as the rest of the map.

Geonosis Trippa Hive - Hardcell Transports - Pontus Ryman DICE

Two Hardcell transports tower over the plains below them.

At the foot of the colossal canyon hill, are the plains of Trippa Hive. The plains are the largest area on the map, spanning a wide wasteland of dust and debris. A number of trenches and small valleys can be found on either side of the plains, where two Hardcell-class interstellar transport loom over the battlefield. In Galactic Assault, the Galactic Republic can use the AT-TEs at their disposal to destroy these transports, causing them to topple over and create a massive sandstorm. At the far end of the plains, sits an enormous Trade Federation core ship. The ship's perimeter is surrounded by trenches, rocky outcrops and a myriad of destroyed vehicles. The center front of the perimeter is notably flat as, in Galactic Assault, the Republic is tasked with positioning AT-TEs there.

ModesEdit

ArcadeEdit

In Arcade, the playable area of Trippa Hive is set in the canyons. The boundaries are situated just before the hill that descends onto the rocky plains and the powered-down AT-TE featured in Galactic Assault is absent. It was added to the mode in the Darth Tyranus Update.

BlastEdit

The Darth Tyranus Update also saw the map added to Blast, where the playable area is similarly set in the canyons. It is identical to the one used for Arcade.

Galactic AssaultEdit

"Separatist forces have laid siege to a Geonosian droid factory occupied by a Republic demolitions crew. With time running out to destroy the facility, the last remaining clone strike team must push back the droids to prevent them from retaking the factory."
— In-game Description
Obi-Wan and Grievous on Geonosis - Battlefront II

Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and General Grievous prepare to duel on Trippa Hive.

Among the harsh desert canyons, a Republic demolitions team works to destroy a Geonosian droid foundry. After a surprise Separatist attack force ambushes them, a team of surviving clones defends the foundry and buys time for Republic reinforcements to arrive. On this map, the Galactic Republic are the attackers and the Separatists are the defenders.

The first phase takes place within the canyons of Trippa Hive and sees the Republic attempting to reactivate a damaged AT-TE and call in Reinforcements. In the second phase, the Republic advances onto a vast battlefront in order to destroy two Hardcell-class interstellar transports deploying more Separatist forces. They can now utilise additional AT-TE walkers, supplied by the Republic fleet. All of this must be done before the Republic run out of AT-TE tickets (maximum of 10), which are determined by the amount of AT-TE walkers waiting to be spawned rather than infantry. The Separatists, meanwhile, must defend their Transports by destroying the AT-TE's, which are incredibly susceptible to blaster fire on their undersides.

Geonosis Trippa Hive - Spider Walker - Pontus Ryman DICE

An OG-9 homing spider droid supports a legion of advancing Battle Droids.

If the Republic succeeds in this second phase, their AT-TE walkers will continue to advance towards a core ship that is attempting to escape. During the transition to this final phase, a massive sand storm will kick up, severely limiting both armies' visibility. The core ship must be brought down by abandoned Turbolasers, which the Republic has to recapture. However, the capture point can only be secured by AT-TEs and cannot be contested.

Hero ShowdownEdit

Added to Trippa Hive in the Capital Supremacy Update, Hero Showdown sees the playable area also set in the canyons.

Heroes vs. VillainsEdit

The canyons of Trippa Hive see action as the playable area, once again, in Heroes vs. Villains. It was added to the mode in the Darth Tyranus Update.

TriviaEdit

  • Trippa Hive was the first Galactic Assault map to be added for the Clone Wars in the live service for Star Wars Battlefront II. It was also the first Galactic Assault map added to the game since the release of Crait: Abandoned Rebel Outpost in The Last Jedi Season.
  • Non-playable vehicles can be seen in Trippa Hive for Galactic Assault. For the Republic, LAAT/C dropships can be seen dropping AT-TE's. For the Separatists, AI-controlled Dwarf Spider Droids and Spider Walkers help damage Republic troops and AT-TE's.
  • Although having many similarities to the Battle of Geonosis, the scenario in Galactic Assault actually takes place well after that initial conflict, as is revealed by various quips by the Republic and Separatist announcers.
  • Nute Gunray is apparently present in this battle, being in the Separatist control ship which is the last objective in Galactic Assault. And according to multiple statements from developers, all Galactic Assault scenarios are canon. This raises some questions regarding the results of this conflict. In all forms of current canon, Nute Gunray avoids Republic custody (is never captured). Therefore, the canon results of this engagement probably had the Republic lose to the Separatists to allow Gunray's escape.
