Lando as he appears in Battlefront II

Lando Calrissian is a Rebel Alliance Hero in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II. He was added to the first game in the Bespin Expansion Pack while being included at launch with the second game.

Star Wars Battlefront[edit | edit source]

"Hello, what have we here?"
— Intro Dialogue

Lando Calrissian is a Rebel Alliance Hero in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Lando's unique trait is called "Fortune Trigger", which increases his chance of a critical hit as his trait goes up by killing enemy heroes and regular troops.

Level 1: 10% chance of landing a critical hit

Level 2: 20% chance of landing a critical hit

Level 3: 50% chance of landing a critical hit

Lando is equipped with the X-8 Night Sniper blaster pistol, which has a thermal vision feature that is activated by aiming down the sights.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Lando has three abilities:

  • Power Blast: Activates a power bar that, when charged, allows Lando to deal increasing amounts of damage up to six times the normal amount. This ability has a slight homing aspect to it, and can be used to snipe across the map.
  • Shocking Trap: Lando disappears from enemy radar and drops a trap that appears to the enemy as a power up or hero token. If an enemy attempts to collect it, they are shocked. If they cannot escape the shock in time, they will die. Lando's trap can be spotted as his spins counter-clockwise and standard power ups spin in the clockwise direction. This ability deals 100 damage. Unlike the shock grenade, escaping Lando's trap is much harder, and requires more button mashing to escape.
  • System Disruption: Produces a shockwave around Lando. Any enemies and villains caught in the wave have their abilities and Star Cards put on cooldown and their weapons overheat. This won't work with heroes like Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine. Heroes with blasters will have a faster cooldown time. This ability is based off of Disruption, a Star Card that appeared in the Bespin Expansion Pack alongside Lando.

Star Wars Battlefront II[edit | edit source]

"Lando Calrissian uses cunning and gadgets to confuse and then ambush his opponents with his heat vision enabled X-8 Night Sniper pistol. You won't see Lando if he sees you first."
— In-game description

Lando Calrissian returns in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II, once again as a Hero for the Rebel Alliance.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Lando is a deceptive and slick hero. His abilities can be used to disable and stun targets, allowing for easier takedowns. He can also disappear from dangerous situations with the use of smoke, where he can wait for his next opportunity to strike.

Lando is at his best when he has his gadgets at the ready. He can trap enemies in a small area with his Disabler, leaving them extremely vulnerable to attack. He can also wipe out an entire enemy squad with his Sharp Shot, which locks on to multiple targets and can one-hit all the default trooper classes, or deal high damage to enemy reinforcements and heroes. His Smoke Grenade can also be used to hide Lando from enemy vision, although Lando can still see enemy targets with the use of his X-8 Night Sniper.
