this was something that you could do in JK
on the level with the TIE bomber that drops bombs on you, if you set off a bomb as it is leaving the bomber it starts a chain reaction that eventually, after two passes I believe, will blow up the bomber
I wonder if you will be able to do something like this in JKII or just outright blow up TIEs with a mounted weapon, like in the last scene with shoting in the trailer

I don't think that you can start that kind of chain reaction. But there is a definate possibility that you could destroy TIES with a mounted weapon.

From the trailer, it looks like we have to fight AT-STs, so a StarFighter wouldn't be unlikely.

can't start the chain reaction in JK or JKII?, i had to use the conc rifle to start it.....

No, you didn't actually HIT the bomb itself. In JK, projectiles cannot collide into each other. Instead what you did was hit the TIE Bomber itself, which caused the bomb to explode from the splash damage, which caused the chain reaction which destroyed the TIE.

I wouldn't know. That has never happened to me before.
