— In-game Description

Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Light Side hero for the Galactic Republic 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]

Overview Edit

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.

Obi-Wan's defensive strength can also be seen in his middle 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 and dodging him.

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 width of the ability.

Abilities Edit

  • All-Out Push: Obi-Wan will unleash a powerful Force blast in an area directly in front of him, damaging and sending his opponents tumbling backwards. This ability can be adapted based on the situation you find yourself in. Hold down the button to increase both the range and width of this Ability.[5]
  • Defensive Rush: Obi-wan will rush forward swinging his lightsaber, deflecting any attacks and damaging enemies in front of him.[5]
  • Restrictive Mind Trick: When used, all opponent abilities in front of Obi-Wan will be disrupted. During this time, no abilities will be available. This also includes dodges.[5]
