"Based on the slimmer vulture droid design, Heyana Droids are automated starfighters equipped for heavy ordnance bombing runs."
— In-game description

The Hyena-class Bomber, also known as a Hyena Droid, is a starfighter in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II that functions as the Separatists' Bomber class. It can be played in the game modes Starfighter Assault, Hero Starfighters, and most Galactic Assault maps.

Additionally, on Clone Wars era maps in Starfighter Assault, AI-controlled Hyena-class Bombers will occasionally perform bombing runs on capital ship objectives.

Overview[]

The Hyena Bomber serves as the heavy hitter for its team, being able to deal heavy damage to objectives, enemy starfighters, or infantry on the ground if not taken care of. Despite its firepower, it suffers from having decreased maneuverability compared to other ship classes.

The Electronic Countermeasures ability allows the Hyena Bomber a brief reprieve from enemy lock-ons, as well as temporarily getting rid of enemy starfighters ability to know where to lead their shots. This allows the Hyena Bomber to attack objectives and to make pursuits harder for its attackers.

With the Multi-Missile Lock ability, the Hyena Bomber targets up to three different starfighters or objectives in order to spread damage out to its enemies. The missiles lock on instantly and work well in making enemy starfighters scatter in their attempt to avoid the missiles.

The Twin Proton Torpedoes can lock onto enemy starfighters and be used in a fire and forget manner, and can also be used to attack objectives, infantry, and enemy Armor. Well-placed torpedoes can deal tremendous damage to any enemy, including Villains and Armor. The Proton Torpedoes can be dumbfired by double-tapping the ability, while tapping it once and keeping sight of a target allows them to lock on.
