Star Wars Battlefront 2 Best Weapons Guide
At the outset of Star Wars Battlefront 2, you'll be handed the base weapon for the Assault, Heavy, Officer, and Specialist classes. For Assault this is a blaster rifle, Heavy class gets a heavy blaster, Officer gets a pistol, and the Specialist class gets a sniper rifle. From here, you can unlock three more weapons for each class, but they'll each take you a while to unlock.
Just below, we've listed the unlockable weapons for the Heavy class as an example, as well as the requirements you have to meet in order to unlock each weapon:
- DC-15LE - Complete Milestone 50 Heavy kills
- FWMB-10K - Complete Milestone 200 Heavy kills
- TL-50 - Complete Milestone 500 Heavy kills
This is the same for the Assault, Officer, and Specialist classes, as although you'll unlock three different weapons for each class, they'll all be unlocked once you've met the 50, 200, and 500 kill Milestones with each class. This is quite a lengthy process, so you're going to have to put some serious time into Star Wars Battlefront 2 (or just be really good at the game), if you want to unlock the arguably better weapons.
Now that we've detailed how the weapon unlock system works for all four classes in the Star Wars Battlefront 2 multiplayer, we'll be running through the best overall weapons in the game.
CR-2 - Battlefront 2 Assault Weapon
The weapon that could well be the best overall in Star Wars Battlefront 2, let alone for the Assault class, the CR-2 will take you a while to unlock at the 200 kills Milestone, but it's fully worth the time investment.
What the CR-2 lacks in the range and damage rating, it more than makes up for in rate of fire and cooling power. Especially when equipped with a stock to boost range, the CR-2 is basically unstoppable at close or medium range, especially when used in fairly closed off areas of maps.
TL-50 - Battlefront 2 Heavy Weapon
There's a good reason that this Heavy weapon is locked behind the final, 500 kills Milestone for the Heavy class. It boasts one of the best fire rate attributes in Star Wars Battlefront 2, all while backing this up with decent cooling power, range, and damage stats.
On top of this, the TL-50 has a nice alternate fire mode, used by pressing down the left trigger, that fires a concussive blast that stuns enemies caught in the blast. This is a great tactic to use when either assaulting or defending a point against a group of enemy troopers.
SE-44C - Battlefront 2 Officer Weapon
Again, we've had to go with the very final weapon in the Star Wars Battlefront 2 Officer class unlock list, as although it'll take you a mammoth 500 kills with the Officer class in order to unlock, it's worth the time investment.
The SE-44C is a fully automatic blaster pistol, meaning that it's basically like holding an assault rifle-caliber weapon in just one hand. All the weapons stats are basically even at halfway along the stat chart, meaning it's not lacking in range, damage, cooling power, or rate of fire.
A280-CFE - Battlefront 2 Specialist Weapon
Rounding out the class weapons with the Specialist sniping class, the A280-CFE is undoubtedly the best sniper rifle to use in virtually any situation, when taking into account its rate of fire, range, and cooling power statistics.
The A280-CFE is a solid weapon for taking out enemy players at any range, and it can even be used fairly close up in some situations, for example if you need to defend a point on the map, due to its semi automatic rate of fire.
This brings a close to our Star Wars Battlefront 2 best weapons guide, and now that we've highlighted the very best weapons you should be gunning for in the multiplayer side of the game, all you have to do is get out there and earn them.
