Star Wars Battlefront II’s previous update in March, added supremacy mode, enhanced lightsaber’s combat, and performed various fixes and additional features. Recently, players reported several balancing issues, especially in Star Wars Battlefront II’s The Capital Supremacy expansion. The studio released an extensive hotfix, performing numerous balancing to melee and weapon damage and cooldown. Not only that, the hotfix repairs a couple of issues regarding ARC Trooper’s progress on certain maps and more.

  • Raised E-5 end damage (21->30) to increase the weapon’s effective range

  • Fixed an issue where players who join an ongoing match would occasionally get no audio during the boarding cinematic in Capital Supremacy.

  • Fixed an issue that would prevent the ARC Trooper from gaining progress when playing on Phase 1 maps (Kamino and Geonosis – Trippa Hive).

  • Fixed an issue that prevented players from completing the Scoped achievement when playing as a Specialist, when fulfilling the criteria against AI on Capital Supremacy.

  • Fixed an issue where Rey and Finn’s ability UI for the Insight and Undercover abilities would not always be fully visible.

  • Revised the ping color of the ARC Trooper’s Helmet Scanner ability for consistency.
