As it appears in Battlefront II

Homing Shot is a Star Card in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II that allows the player to lock onto enemy soldiers and fire a guided missile that will seek them out.

Star Wars Battlefront[edit | edit source]

The Homing Shot is an equippable Star Card in Star Wars Battlefront.

Description[edit | edit source]

A homing rocket launcher that locks on to enemy soldiers from afar.

This star card locks onto enemies. Once locked on, the player will receive a message that they're being locked on with a rocket. If the locked on player doesn't find cover, they will be instantly killed by the rocket if they are not using the Bacta Bomb or Bodyguard trait.

When a player spawns on Princess Leia or Emperor Palpatine as a body guard, they can use the Homing Shot as one of their set Star Cards.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Considering how common both Bacta Bomb and the Bodyguard Trait both are, the Homing Shot works in its prime versus weakened enemies at a distance. Considering it has zero damage drop-off, it has real merit at range; at closer ranges, its forced lock-on sequence makes the user completely immobile and vulnerable, consequently susceptible to any form of damage, so using it on outdoor maps of a good size is useful with Homing Shot. Staying near a friendly spawn is a good place to stay, or near friendly, heavily-guarded objectives.
