"You will know the power of the Dark Side."
— Intro Dialogue

Darth Vader, also known as Lord Vader, is a playable Hero character in Star Wars Battlefront. Two of his abilities are shared with his son, Luke Skywalker. He is voiced by Matt Sloan.


Lord Vader is a menacing presence to behold on the battlefield, the sound of his breathing apparatus combined with his lightsaber cutting down foes is enough to strike fear into any insurgent. His mask glows with the hue of his blade on any battlefield that he enters. Lord Vader is a tank for the Empire. With his trait Bodyguard, which boosts up his defense, he has the capability to wipe out an entire rebel base without losing much health.

His omniscience emanates as he takes objectives, and clears the path for minions and allies.

Darth Vader is a powerful, close quarters villain but can have trouble closing distances purely based on agility. His Flight plays an important role in closing the gaps between enemies. In close range, Vader's abilities are very destructive to his foes. However, he is much slower than other heroes.

Trait: Darth Vader's armor increases based on the number of enemies surrounding him. Heroes count as two enemies towards his trait progression. Armor is a bonus amount of health added to a player's health bar that not only grants the player an increased amount of health, but a greater amount of damage resistance as well. Darth Vader's trait, like the other heroes in Star Wars: Battlefront, has three levels, each more powerful than the previous. The bonuses given to Darth Vader for each level of his hero trait are defined below:

Level 1: 20% for 1-2 enemies

Level 2: 50% for 3-4 enemies

Level 3: 80% for 5 or more enemies

Abilities Edit

Darth Vader has five powerful abilities:

  • Heavy Attack: A powerful sweeping attack, intended to strike down multiple close-ranged enemies at the same time.
  • Force Choke: Darth Vader uses the Force to choke enemies and suspend them in the air. This only targets one enemy at a time.
  • Saber Throw: Darth Vader uses the Force to sling his Lightsaber across long distances, using it to cut down enemies. Saber Throw tends to throw from the hip, not the arm, so aim upwards or float a little.
  • Deflected Shot: Darth Vader can deflect blaster fire from enemy units with his lightsaber, for a short time. This originally only lasted for 4 seconds, but an update increased it to 8.
  • Flight: Vader is one of the only two characters in battlefront to use unsupported flight Instead of jumping he will "fly" a few feet from the ground. Unlike the Emperor who also possesses this ability he doesn't have the force dash that greatly increases his distance.

Trivia Edit

  • Darth Vader's theme is the iconic Imperial March from the Empire Strikes Back OST.
  • Vader's trait was originally bugged since it gave armor protection for enemy soldiers as well. This was corrected later on in a patch where it simply affected him.
  • Vader is one of the only three characters who doesn't play like a soldier. The others being his master, and his son.
