Star Wars Battlefront Wiki

"An improved version of Vanguard with a single slug for improved accuracy and damage."
— In-game description

Slug Vanguard is an Ability Card in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II for the Assault class. It unlocks once the Assault reaches Level 30. The card upgrades the Assault's Vanguard ability, allowing it to fire one single slug at a time. This single slug is more accurate and does more damage than the default Vanguard.


Slug Vanguard is an Ability Card available to the Assault class at Level 30. The card swaps out the default Vanguard ability's shrapnel shot for a single slug, granting increased range and accuracy at the cost of reduced close-range power.

Although its close-range power is reduced, Slug Vanguard still performs best at close range as it can be quite tricky to land a shot at longer ranges.
