"Obi-Wan was a Jedi Master and General of the Galactic Republic. During the Clone Wars, he commanded the 212th Attack Battalion and defeated General Grievous on Utapau."
— In-game Description

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Galactic Republic Hero in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II.[1][2] He was added to the game on November 28, 2018, as part of the Battle of Geonosis Update.[3][4] He originally cost 35,000 credits to unlock but this cost was removed in the Capital Supremacy Update.


Much like Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi is an expert at turning defense into offense, though in a different way. While Yoda's defensive strengths come in the form of his Unleash ability, where he absorbs blaster fire and propels enemies forward, Obi-Wan Kenobi's comes in his high stamina, allowing him to deflect blasters and other lightsabers for longer. He also possesses a higher than average max health regen, which can be increased further with a Star Card.

Obi-Wan's defensive strength can also be seen in his right ability, Defensive Rush, where Obi-Wan lunges forward at enemies in a lightsaber rush, all the while accurately deflecting any attacks.

The Jedi mind trick is an iconic ability of Obi-Wan's. While Rey uses her mind trick to confuse enemies and revert their controls, Obi-Wan's mind trick prevents enemy players from using their abilities.

Finally, Obi-Wan has a powerful Force push inspired by his use of the Force as seen in particular in Revenge of the Sith. Obi-Wan is able to charge up this ability; the longer it is charged, the more powerful the blast is in terms of the range at which enemies are effected as well as the damage of the ability.
