Star Wars Battlefront Wiki

NPC stands for Non-Playable Character. An NPC is any character which cannot be played by the player. Many of the native characters (Tusken Raiders, Jawas, etc.) in Star Wars: Battlefront are NPCs.

NPC's can range from anything, even if they aren't technically units. Many characters in the Star Wars universe appear in the games but don't have any interaction sequences. This can include characters like Jabba and droids victim to torture in some maps.

Many NPC's from the original battlefront are playable in the second installment. These include native factions like Jawas and Geonosians.

Other NPC's appear that have special interactions with the player. Droids such as the Health and Ammo droids cannot be played or moved, but will interact with the player by giving them their respected items.
