The Thermal Detonator is a Star Card featured in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and also as the default ability for the Assault class in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II. In both games, it explodes in a small radius shortly after being thrown, dealing damage to everything around it. It deals modest damage to opponents.

Star Wars Battlefront[]


"The most popular and widely used grenade in the galaxy. It is easy to use and has deadly results."
— In-game description

Being the first Star Card unlocked in the game, this grenade is the most common out of all the grenades. It is classified as an Asset Card.

Although it has a small radius, the Thermal Detonator can give a lot of punishment within this range.

This Asset Card is great when used in small corridors.


Being that this Star Card is one of the first Cards that players will unlock in the game, it will also appear in many kinds of load-outs for beginners. One of these load-outs is using the Scout Pistol and Thermal Detonator as your Asset Cards, and Ion Shot as your Charge Card. The blaster that would work best with this load-out is the default blaster rifle for whichever faction you are playing as. Since it is advised that players spend their first credits on Star Cards instead of blasters. It may also be used to bounce round corners to kill unseen enemies without exposing yourself to their blasters.

Star Wars Battlefront II[]

The Thermal Detonator returns as a default ability for Assault and can be improved.

After The Age of Rebellion Update, Leia Organa can throw three detonators.
