- "Anakin Skywalker deals more damage with his lightsaber attacks but they drain more stamina."
- — In-game description
Massive Strikes is a Boost Card for the Light Side hero Anakin Skywalker in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II that can be unlocked for 1 Skill Point starting when Anakin Skywalker has been leveled up to Level 2.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Massive Strikes allows the player to consistently deliver high damage output from Anakin. It increases the damage of his basic attack to a maximum damage increase of 20. With this Star Card equipped at Epic rarity, Anakin's basic attack deals 150 damage towards enemies facing towards him, and 190 damage to enemies facing away from him (when Anakin is attacking from behind).
After Epic rarity, which allows Anakin to one-hit all normal troopers except the Heavy, this Star Card proves its worth on being able to quickly dispatching high-health enemies such as Reinforcements or enemy heroes.
It's important to note that, although the card states his saber attacks now drain more stamina, the stamina penalty actually applies to all stamina related costs. So when using this card, Anakin's Saber Attacks, Saber/Melee Blocks and Bolts Deflected all consume more of his stamina then without using the card.
Known Issues[edit | edit source]
Affects all stamina costs[edit | edit source]
Despite only stated to affect his Saber Attacks, this card's penalty to Stamina actually applies to all of Anakin's Stamina costs. This turns his Saber/Melee Block the worst of all saber users, only being able to block 8 hits before running out of Stamina. This is very detrimental to the player controlling Anakin in a situation where there are multiple enemy Saber Users (especially in Heroes Vs. Villains), and thus using this card may not be worth it despite the extra damage it grants.
