"Luke Skywalker uses his lightsaber skills and the Force to be on the frontlines of battle. His high maneuverability enables him to rush his enemies and avoid damage."
— In-game Description

Luke Skywalker is a playable Rebel and Light Side Hero character in Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II.

Star Wars BattlefrontEdit

"May the Force be with us."
— Intro Dialogue in Star Wars Battlefront

Overview Edit

Luke Skywalker has very high movement speed and agility compared to most other heroes, which allows him to move around the battlefield much faster than opponents can react. He shares two of his abilities with Darth Vader.

Abilities Edit

Luke Skywalker has four abilities:

  • Heavy Attack: A powerful sweeping attack which inflicts multiple hits, intended to take out multiple close-ranged enemies at the same time or inflict heavy damage to heroes, as it has augmented damage over simple lightsaber slashes. Heavy Attacking simultaneously with Vader will result in a brief lightsaber duel purely built for aesthetic purposes, during which both are briefly invulnerable to further attack.
  • Force Push: Luke uses the force to push enemies away from him. When the ability is activated, any enemies in front of Luke will be pushed away from him and killed in the process. if used against a hero, it will stun them momentarily, making the vulnerable to follow-up attacks.
  • Saber Rush: A long distance attack that allows Luke to close distances on far away enemies very quickly or traverse the map.
  • Deflected Shot: Essentially Luke's defensive blocking maneuver, whenever this ability is active, Luke uses his lightsaber to block incoming attacks, usually nullifying any damage dealt by them. When blocking, all blaster shots that hit Luke from the front will be reflected in the direction the player is aiming, essentially towards whatever the player's crosshair is on. If Luke is struck by an explosive projectile, such like Rockets, Torpedoes, Disruption Blasts and Homing Shots, he will still block the shot but the projectile will explode, causing Luke to suffer splash damage while solid projectiles (Cycler Rifle shots, Scatter Gun blasts and Fire) cannot be reflected. This ability will also block enemy lightsaber attacks as long as they do not hit Luke from behind. Locking by pressing R3 on console or V on PC will lock the crosshair onto an enemy, causing all reflected attacks to be directed towards that enemy.

Trait Edit

Luke Skywalker was given a hero trait, along with the other vanilla heroes in Battlefront, as a part of the Scarif DLC patch. Luke Skywalker's trait gives him increased speed with each kill or damage dealt to opposing heroes.

Level 1: 25% Speed Increase

Level 2: 40% Speed Increase

Level 3: 70% Speed Increase

Tips Edit


  • Never forget about Luke's high speed, because he can jump in and jump out faster than anyone can put any big hits on him. Don't be afraid to use him in hit-and-run attacks, as they are very effective.
  • Luke also has the ability to shut off his light saber by pressing down on the D-pad (or C on PC). This combined with his generally camouflage clothing can give him the element of surprise.
  • If you're trait level 2 or 3, and keep on Sprinting and Jumping it will become extremely difficult for them to hit you.

Heavy Strike

  • Luke's heavy strike allows him to almost instantly wipe out a large number of enemies. Doorways close to an objective where enemies are packed in trying to get in is a great place to use it.
  • As mentioned before, when Luke and Vader simultaneously use a heavy strike on each other, they will enter a clash, and whoever pushes down the said button the most, will get a significant advantage over the other.

Saber Rush

  • The saber rush, while possessing great damage, also has the extra perk of giving Luke a dash. Next time someone tries to put Luke down with a thermal imploder, use the saber rush to not only escape the blast, but go ahead and aim yourself in the direction of the "storm-tripper" who tried to take you out. It can also be used as a makeshift Jump Pack.
  • If you are surrounded, and need to get out of a sticky situation, don't be afraid to use this as an escape.

Force Push

  • While not having the damage output of a Heavy Strike, it has much larger area of effect.
  • Try to use this ability while your jumping, because if you're static and use this ability, it will leave you susceptible of damage, and it allows you to take multiple enemies from above.
  • Luke's Force Push got buffed during the January patch, and can deal about 25 to 30 damage to opposing villains, so don't be afraid to use it.

Deflected Shot

  • The deflected shot is one thing that is great because of how often it is ignored. While at first it seems to simply be a defensive, time buying trick, it is actually quite the dangerous offense. The icon displayed while blocking is a cross-hair showing where Luke will try to deflect any shots that come his way. It is very satisfying to use as someone's pulse cannon blast against his own team or even himself! Don't use this while fighting a vehicle, as it will still hit you via impact of the shots, or grenade barrage. It can also hit you if it crashes right into you, resulting in a critical state, or even death depending on its impact.

Star Wars Battlefront IIEdit

Luke Skywalker appears in Star Wars Battlefront II as a Hero for the Rebel Alliance.

Overview Edit

Luke is a very mobile and fast hitting hero. Because of his speed and health regen, he works best as a hit-and-run hero. He can use his Force Push on the move which can take out a majority of the default classes in one hit. His Saber Rush allows him to damage enemies from a short distance or close the gap on a foe that is further away. His Repulse allows him to damage and knock back any enemies that are standing within its radius, which can leave them vulnerable to attacks.

Abilities Edit

  • Rush: Luke enhances his speed and rushes to the attack. Luke can use this ability 2 times. if the player has the card "Jedi Reflexes" then Luke can the ability 3 times. Combining Rush with a Dodge can allow Luke to be very agile, making it very hard for enemies to hit Luke.
  • Repulse: Luke uses the force to knock down nearby enemies surrounding him. this ability won't kill a full health player but will still deal damage to them. (note that Luke will be very vulnerable to damage himself, so be wise when using Repulse.)
  • Push: Luke uses the force to push his enemies off their feet and away from Luke. Push will only one-hit kill Officer, Assault and Specialist.

  • Luke Skywalker appears in his Return of The Jedi outfit on all planets except Hoth. On Hoth, he wears his outfit from The Empire Strikes Back when he is trapped in an ice cave by a Wampa.
  • On Hoth, Luke uses his father's lightsaber, on all other planets he uses his green lightsaber.
    • This is correct and on-target with the Canon story. We don't know when the Sullust map takes place, but it must be after Return of the Jedi, because he has a black robe and green lightsaber.
  • If a player is playing as Luke and another as Darth Vader, and both use the Heavy Strike ability at the same time, a lightsaber blocking scene will commence.
  • Luke's theme song is known as The Tractor Beam/Chasm Crossfire Medley in the New Hope OST.
  • He is voiced by Anthony Hansen in Star Wars Battlefront (2015).
  • He is voiced by Matthew Mercer in Star Wars Battlefront II (2017).
  • This is the first time in a Battlefront game that a Hero voice actor has been recast.
