The PlayStation Blog recently offered up a look at the newest era’s Heavy class, one of the four trooper classes playable in Star Wars Battlefront II.
The blog post shows off two skins for the Heavy, based on different Star Wars eras. The Heavy Droid got to strut its stuff at this year’s E3, but the Heavy Storm Trooper from the newest trilogy is a fresh look at the class.
As the name implies, the Heavy is the most formidable of the four trooper classes, effective at holding down points and pushing the line. The role is fulfilled with the help of the Heavy’s two unique primary abilities, which are carried across every faction. The Combat Shield projects a defensive shield on the end of the player’s gun to allow them to absorb more damage while pushing forward, and the Sentry deploys a heavy blaster that trades off mobility for sustained damage output.
Star Wars Battlefront II is slated to launch November 17th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. For everything else we know about the game, or still want to, check out EGM’s complete guide to Star Wars Battlefront II.
