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[]

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


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 bodyguard, they can use the Homing Shot as one of their set Star Cards.


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.
