With the Clone Commando set to assault players in Star Wars Battlefront 2, DICE has seen it fit to give us a Star Wars Battlefront 2 Clone Commando abilities and character overview! Prepare to read up on the hero’s weapons, skills and more.
Primary Weapon: DC-17m Repeating Blaster Rifle
The DC-17m is the unique weapon of the Clone Commando and became standard issue throughout the Clone Wars.
Due to its ability to reconfigure into a standard blaster rifle or grenade launcher it is capable of fulfilling various combat roles. It’s versatility makes it a dangerous weapon to come up against.
Left Ability: Anti-Armor Attachment
The DC17m reconfigures into a grenade launcher that fires up to 3 small grenades, with high efficiency against vehicles and shields. If the grenade launcher runs out of shells the ability will revert into its cooldown state. Once in cooldown the DC-17m will revert back into a blaster rifle.
Reconfiguration into a blaster rifle can also occur manually, regardless of how many shells you have left. After each shell is fired there will be a brief reload time while the Clone Commando equips another shell into the chamber.
Middle Ability: Battle Focus
The commando goes into battle focus and immediately grants himself and allies around him a damage protection buff, which lowers all damage taken by 25%. Additionally, any damage the commando deals will heal a percentage of his base health.
Right Ability: Repulsor Blast
The commando extends his left arm and discharges a shockwave from his arm-mounted repulsor, that instantly knocks nearby enemies to the ground.
Lastly, DICE has also listed down the changes and progress they’ve made to the Clone Commando since gamescom and they are:
- Added the repulsor gadget to the Clone Commandos arm
- Further improvements and refinements to the abilities
- Added a first version of a passive messaging system that shows allies and enemies that the Battle Focus buff is active
- General balance tweaks
- Updated icons for Battle Focus and Repulsor (ones above are from gamescom)
- Tweaked default look with details added to key areas
The Clone Commando is set to be released later this month as part of the Cooperation update on September 25. You can check out gameplay of the Clone Commando right here.
