The AT-RT is a small and fast vehicle. Its fast speed allows the player to move around maps in a much shorter time and escape enemies more easily when needed. The AT-RT can dispose of infantry decently and take out vehicles easily with its Ion Charge ability. There is one downside to this vehicle though. Which is the lack of protection for the driver. The lack of protection means players will be able to shoot the driver down fairly easily, but if the player is constantly moving around, it can make it harder for the enemy to kill the driver.
Whatever class the player has selected before spawning into the AT-RT is the appearance of the pilot of the AT-RT.
There is a glitch where the AT-RT can become completely invisible, so the player can appear as if they are floating in the air. This is visible to both friendly and enemy players, although the shadow of the AT-RT will appear behind the player.
