Overview[edit | edit source]

The map features many rooms and corridors, as well as much wasted machinery and scrap. Many of the rooms are massive, except the hallways.

The palace features a large amount of cramped hall ways and corridors. In certain parts of the map, Gamorrean Guards (alive and dead) can be seen behind bars of door ways.

In Jabba's throne room, the trap floor that Luke Skywalker falls through is burst open. There is also a hole that players can slide through.

The dungeon where Luke Skywalker fights Jabba's rancor in the movie Return of the Jedi appears. However, the rancor itself is dead because the map is set after the film's events.

Han Solo Season Update Patch Notes

Jabba's Palace is a small Tatooine land map that was added to DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II in the Han Solo Season Update. Jabba's Palace can be played in Blast, Heroes vs. Villains, Hero Showdown and Co-Op, as well as in the offline mode Arcade.

Overview[edit | edit source]

This map remains largely the same from its original appearance in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront, save for a few differences in lighting and the addition of doors that can open/close at various hallway entrances. Like its appearance in the previous game, it explores the interior of Jabba's Palace and features his throne room, the rancor pit, and the palace entrance, all seen in movie Return of the Jedi. In addition to these iconic locations, the map also provides a look at other parts of Jabba's fortress, such as a lounge area and a bath. In the second game, players see the outdoors section of the map twice: in the final phase of Extraction the outdoors section of the map is open to play, and in the Co-Op cutscene.

This is a close-quarters map, so players should always be careful when turning a corner. The Assault class's Vanguard ability proves especially effective due to its shotgun-like spread and damage as well as the temporary speed boost that is granted to the player, allowing the Assault to get the jump on enemies.

In Co-Op, the Empire defends the palace while the Rebels attack. As the launch version of the Co-Op map had the AI Rebels spawn behind a door near the first two Command Posts, forcing them to walk through a cramped corridor, it is very easy to defend; high explosive weaponry and area attacks can easily keep the Rebels out of the doors and out of the two Command Post in the first room. This was fixed in the March 11th Patch which had the AI now take multiple paths instead.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The AI for Arcade seems to be heavily glitched. The pathing enables the AI to travel through walls, as well as detect players behind walls, and the bots can cluster up in certain corridors, being inclined not to move at all, making games have very slow and sometimes undair progression, it is unknown if a fix has been in the works for it as of yet.
