13 Things to Know About the Star Wars Battlefront Bespin DLC



Weapons & Star Cards

Weapons & Star Cards

In EA's Bespin announcement, it revealed two brand new weapons that will be included in the Bespin DLC release. 

The DLC includes a brand new X-8 Night Sniper and an EE-4 blaster. The company recently went into detail about these weapons and you can get a feel for their strengths right here. The developer also offers some tips to those that want to give them a go.

The sniper blaster will, of course, be aimed at those who like to engage in long range combat while the other weapon will be geared toward those who like to get up close and personal. 

Bespin also delivers new Star Cards including Scout Binoculars, Shock Grenade, and a disruption wave appropriately called Disruption. EA outlines them in detail here.

In addition, the company's made some tweaks to the current batch of weapons and Star Cards in Battlefront. Here's the full list of changes to these items:

- Charges: Players will be able to deactivate charges by holding down the Y/Triangle button on console and 2 on PC. Once this is done the effect will be removed and the charge will instantly enter a cool down state.
- Scan Pulse: This card now continuously sends out pulses at set 2 second intervals. When someone is pulsed, they will remain visible for 0.5 seconds.

- Bowcaster: The fire pattern has been altered. The following pattern will be used when charging the weapon:

- Center projectile
- Left & Right projectiles
- Top & Bottom projectiles

- Pulse Cannon: A laser glint has been added so players that are being targeted by the pulse cannon will be able to see a green laser on their screen thus revealing the location of the attacker.
- Explosive Shot: The charge now will cause double the heat buildup on any weapon when being used. To balance this the time the charge is active has been increased for both normal (5 to 7s) and upgraded (7 to 10) cards.
- Berserker (Trait): The berserker effect will trigger on 78% HP or less
- Berserker (Trait): A vignette has been added to inform the player that the berserker effect is active.
- Berserker (Trait): The armor multiplier has been increased while the berserker effect is active.
- Blaster Cannon: A self-destruct timer has been added and will trigger 45 seconds after the blaster cannon has been used at least once. If the blaster cannon never was used, it will self-destruct after 15 seconds.
- DLT-19: Raised initial damage from 15 to 17.
- Ion Disruptor: Increased the explosive radius of the disruptor projectile. Inner explosion from 1 to 2.5m and outer explosion from 2.5 to 7m.

    Add lando to the new Bespin/Cloud City expansion pack. He deserves to be in this game.

    I believe that the people at DICE are going to be adding Bosk and Chewbacca for the next DLC rather than Lando. I want to know whom they are adding for the Death Star expansion. The DICE creators really need to add The Force Awakens material into the game, make the lightsaber characters faster and something else. This material comes from the original trilogy which is why they need to add Ren and Phasma, then Rey and Finn to the hero list.

      no my friend, they are putting content for the first, original trilogy, so Death Star villains problaby will be old Obi Wan Kenobi and General Tarkin as a tactical villain

        I don’t think it will be obi wan kenobi or grand moth tarken because one taken would be hard to put as a hero and two it wouldn’t be fair to put kenobi in because there will be two lightsaber duelers for the rebels and one for the empire so what i think it is gonna be is Chewbaca because chewy has been in the death star and bosk because he has connection to the empire

      The Heroes for the Bespin DLC have been released for a long time ago. Lando and Dengar is the new Hero and Villian. I cant understand why they chose Lando over Chewbacca! The Force Awakens happend 30 years after episode VI so why do they have to add anything from it to the game? The game is set in the time between IV-VI. If they where to add anything from any other Star Wars movie it must be from Episode I-III, but DICE have said they will only add stuff from the original trilogy.

      Here is a great video for the Bespin DLC and the new patches for the game++.

    Bossk is a favourite for death star but ig88.may be seen as there are assasin droids on the death star That may lead to Chewbacca and another yavin 4 expansion

    They could always add a ugnaut costume as the are seen in cloud city

    Hereos are ok, I personally want to see more player skins for non-hero based multiplayer modes. Almost everyone uses shadow or scout trooper. What about tie pilots? at-at pilots? Imperial officers? Emperor guards? IG88? We need more variety. Need other kinds of droids besides R5’s and Probe’s for power ups, too. Why can’t there be a protocol droid? R2 units? Mouse droids for reconnaissance? Why can’t they add emotes that are actually useful? I.e. “follow me, cover me, watch that corner, proximity mine, everyone target that auto turret, stick together”, etc..

    people are complaining about the expensive $50-60 price tag on it.

    in canada it cost $70-80.

    on a side note, i can’t wait for Dengar.

    EA needs to make every battlefield available in a “survivalist” mode for people who don’t particularly care for playing online.

    it will most likely be tarken and old ben, though I do not believe obi wan will use his lightsaber, instead being a sneaky, tactical hero, using mind tricks. Chewbacca and bossk will be a surprise dlc.

    R Wilbanks: I totally agree with your idea on the emotes! I get sooooo frustrated not being able to communicate at a most basic level when not connected via some audio device.

    I think the next hero should be chewbacca first thing is hes iconic to star wars just like the death star second is you can hear him in the falcon when get lots of kills last is boskk has been confirmed for the death star dlc because if u watch the future for ea star wars trailer u will notice theres a character design now this is the cool thing what does boskk hunt? Wookies which would make it even more of a fight. For boskk he would have a rapid fire card, a x ray view (like greddo) and for the star card a wookie hunter sense which could allow rebels to have a wookie skin for chewy of course his bowcaster and a single shot card, a 3 hit shot to kill 3 storm troopers at once then his star card would be a 5 shot strike anyways for the people dont think obi wan kenobi should be a hero i think he could even though he died who else died and came back greedo it could happen just to let you know the cards are my thoughts not official but hopefully the dlcs will be free not $25.00 i just think thats to much for a dlc

    I hope it comes sooner rather than later because of all the new content, but that probably wont’t happen due to bugs.

    I NEED June 21st to come I’ve been really hyper because of it.

  20. Jimmi

    06/19/2016 at 4:36 am

    Is 21st of June the two week earlier access for season pass holders or for everyone? Because if it is for everyone then why the hell did I not get my early access as having paid for the whole season pass!? Also I agree that chewbacca should be brought in as a hero. And yes I really think old obi wan should have his light sabre!!! So what if the empire only get vader with a sabre. At the end of the day that’s how it was in the films so that’s how it should be for the games! People need to stop being noobie!

    • Hunter Gibson

      06/20/2016 at 6:37 pm

      The 21st is strictly for Season Pass holders.

    I found it on Amazon for $14.99. Is this for real. I must purchase it a code from Amazon and then put the code in my console. When I went to buy it, the sight asked for a credit card. I already have an account with a credit card. Why do they need it again to purchase this code. Is this a scam. My son is so disappointed that he can not download it without the season pass. What are your thoughts gaming world?
