The TIE/SA Bomber or commonly known as the TIE Bomber is a starfighter featured in Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II. In Battlefront it was added for all users in the patch that released the Death Star expansion pack for Season Pass holders. They are only found in Battle Station and Fighter Squadron. In Battlefront II it is a playable bomber for Starfighter Assault and is slower than regular fighters.
Star Wars BattlefrontEdit
When the Power Up is found by a pilot, it will spawn two TIE Bombers which will follow them and act as AI wing men; it will get fighters off of a pilot's back and get plenty of kills. The Bomber could originally three-shot enemy fighters with near 100% accuracy across a map, but this was changed, with the same going for the TIE Defender. If the player dies, their bombers disappear.
Star Wars Battlefront II Edit
