"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.

OverviewEdit

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. You can shoot at him from the back, though it deals reduced damage.

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.
