Appearances Star Wars: Battlefront

Luke Skywalker is a playable Rebel Hero character in Star Wars: Battlefront. He shares two of his abilities with Darth Vader, his father formally known as Anakin Skywalker.

OverviewEdit

Luke Skywalker is equipped with very high speed and movement ability. He has very high agility, which allows him to move around the battlefield faster than opponents can react.

Abilities Edit

Luke Skywalker has four powerful abilities:

  • Heavy Attack: A powerful sweeping attack which inflicts multiple hits, intended to take out multiple close-ranged enemies at the same time or deal heavy damage to heroes.
  • Force Push: Luke uses the force to powerfully push enemies away from him. It is also capable of stunning heroes for a short time, allowing for a follow-up attack.
  • Saber Rush: A long distance attack that allows Luke to close distances on far away enemies very quickly or traverse the map.
  • Deflected Shot: Luke can deflect blaster fire from enemy units with his lightsaber, for a short time. Solid projectiles, such as the cycler rifle, cannot be deflected. Wherever the "crosshairs" are pointed during deflection is where he will deflect the shot to.

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

General 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.

Heavy Strike Edit

  • 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, a light saber clash will begin. Always remember this, because the one time you forget it might be the time Vader wins.

Force Push Edit

  • This is also a great way to clear out a group of enemies. While it doesn't have the damage output of the heavy strike, it has a much larger area-of-effect.

Saber Rush Edit

  • 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.

Deflected Shot Edit

  • 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 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.

TriviaEdit

  • 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.
    • This will also occur on the Death Star maps, where he will be dressed in his stormtrooper costume.
  • On Hoth and the Death Star, 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 Sullest 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 is voiced by Anthony Hansen.
  • Luke's theme song is known as The Tractor Beam/Chasm Crossfire Medley in the New Hope OST.
