Favourite Unit
Whats your favourite Unit type?
I usually use the trooper, i avoid vehicles (unless i'm a Jedi) and i'm not as good as sniping as i was in SWBF1.

ParanoidAndroid 11-17-2005 06:17 AM

Gotta say the engineer, love their new shotgun and det packs can be alot of fun. Plus they can slice into vehicles. Plus health and ammo packs make them a useful addition to your team, I pass tons of those things out too allies every game.

The only thing I dislike about them is that they lack a basic pistol back up weapon, the shotgun isn't always good over long distances, and it's so annoying to be out of shotgun bullets and H/A packs, and your suddenly defensless. Every other class has a pistol (exept for some speacial's) so why not the engineer?

zerted 11-17-2005 06:18 AM

I'm ok at sniping, and I do it unless I'm burning people as a Bothan Spy.

Redtech 11-17-2005 07:36 AM

Gotta say engineer, but it's hard to know when to use him, without knowing the level.

Darth Alec 11-17-2005 09:02 AM

The engineer, I always use him. No matter themap.

deamonomic 11-17-2005 10:44 AM

droidika. they are good for helpng your ppl advance. only thing i dont like is that they are very slow

010_sWitch_010 11-17-2005 11:14 AM

Normal Trooper. The "Average Joe" trooper good for most situations.

[viRus-x] 11-17-2005 11:39 AM

my favorite Trooper rapid fire :P

PoiuyWired 11-17-2005 12:12 PM

1) damn near infinite ammo.
2) built in health dispenser.
3) healing by ammo droids(dispensor you people).
4) shotgun is a nice weapon
5) car jacking can be fun
6) Detpacks are great against anything big, or as traps
7) best flag carrier, even on your own(run + health drop).

DarkReborn 11-17-2005 12:38 PM

troopers i like them all,exepcting SBD so they dont have nades

SirLancelot 11-17-2005 12:45 PM

I like all the classes, but the Trooper, the Rifleman, is the backbone of any army.

Agreed. They are the most efficient units you have. They are good aaginst everything but vehicles. Plus...they are always avaliable so you don't have to worry about a limited supply of them. I also like the special units like the Dark and Jet Troopers, Droideka and one of my favourite that wasn't on the list, though it could be in the other option, the wookies. Very helpful in Dagobah.

RaV™ 11-17-2005 09:49 PM

My favorite unit would be the regular soldiers.

MandaloreBIC 11-17-2005 10:03 PM

everyone love them'...

Everyone SHOULD too, because they are the most effective unit in the game, almost every other single unit is more designated for one certain thing, but the soldier is designated for it all, except blowing up things such as tanks and enemy vehicles, but still they are the best unit..IMHO

Micahc 11-18-2005 04:55 PM

The normal trooper. I find it strange that no one has voted Jet trooper yet...

Commander Obi-Wan 11-18-2005 05:43 PM

Jet Trooper is like my second favourite unit......first is the normal trooper.

MagnaGuard 11-18-2005 11:52 PM

Commander is my fav. 'cause of the bonuses you get from them and 'cause of their weapons.

Commander Obi-Wan 11-20-2005 10:51 PM

My fav. commander class is the Clone Commander. I like his chaingun, and bonuses (rally). Plus the only other commander class I use (not much though) is the Magna Guard (I wish they had electrostaffs.) :(

zerted 11-21-2005 12:20 PM

I think, from the poll results, some of the unit changes the developers made were good. The normal trooper should be the most used (also meaning most liked) unit, and it is. Though, I think the engineer is a little high.

Redtech 11-22-2005 09:03 AM

I kinda like the engineer, it's a "noob" unit, but it takes a lot of skill to kill more than 2 people with one.

(I'm making the point about 2 people, rather than 2 AI).

PoiuyWired 11-22-2005 01:22 PM

Not that hard actually, plant the datpack right and wait til a small rush happens, then go *click*

Shotgunning is good only if its a headshot.

Thing is, engineer is either n00bs or skilled trapping/ambushing. If you get the jump on someone up close, he is yours(and then your heal up and get the trap going again), but not that good for real firefights.

droidekaslayr 11-25-2005 04:35 AM

i gotta go wiv the classic trooper

Commander Obi-Wan 11-28-2005 11:02 PM

Does anybody use te snipers anymore? I don't really use the sniper anymore. Mainly because the AI is better. I used the sniper a lot in Battlefront. Also, I liked to go prone when I was the sniper.

Redtech 11-29-2005 05:54 AM

Camping Kamino is brilliant. The AI only fires in 3 shot bursts anyway, so even if you are caught, most likely you'll survive. Also helps that they stand still when they notice you...

Commander Obi-Wan 11-29-2005 01:31 PM

In Kamino, it's personally want to use the Turrets. There powerful and you can see everything from some of the turrets.

biny 11-29-2005 05:49 PM

Clone Commader all the way! Can't go wrong with a chaingun (unless it's pointed the wrong way).

I'm almost always sniper. I'm also moving around to much to attempt to use prone (if it was there), but I still miss it.

PoiuyWired 02-20-2007 11:17 AM

Datpacks and shotguns.

Titanius Anglesmith 02-20-2007 12:37 PM

Holy crap, it's been over a year since anyone has posted in this thread. Why does it seem that no one is able to look at the date of the last post. Well since it's been resurrected and I've never posted in this thread, then I'll go ahead and say I always use the regular trooper. I find it very effective to just run into the heat of the battle using the Elite Rifle.

Relenzo2 02-20-2007 01:14 PM

If this counts, my favorite unit is the Rebel Infiltrator from ROTE. SpecForce. Kicks. Major. BUTT.

PoiuyWired 02-21-2007 08:56 AM

What RotE? Return of the Ewoks?

Henz 02-21-2007 10:09 AM

Engineer Class all the way.

Sniping on Kamino is fun too though

Relenzo2 02-21-2007 01:09 PM

LOL! Rise of the Empire, maps for BFII

Dark_Hunter 02-21-2007 01:46 PM

Dark Trooper Rules!

Relenzo2 02-21-2007 02:50 PM

No, he doesn't!

JawaJoey 02-26-2007 03:20 AM

Traditionally, I've used the regular trooper the most, by far. He's versatile and powerful. The rifle works good in close combat but I can snipe as well. (I snipe way better with the trooper than the sniper. And the elite sniper rifle sucks). The elite rifle is awesome.

But recently (last time I played) I started using the Engineer, and I was extremely impressed. Detpacks can be fun. The health and ammo thing is fricking awesome. And the Shotgun is actually really good, a lot better than I thought.

So I've started to use the engineer more often. But I think the regular trooper is still my favorite. It's tough to say though.

Least favorite unit- Dark Trooper. Try as I might, I can't ever like the Dark Trooper, in either game.

As for Heros, Han Solo is awesome. He basically has an elite rifle with unlimited ammo, and hero health. Plus, he's Han Solo. Boba Fett is cool too, but his limited ammo gets annoying, moreso than it is for regular units (due to longevity and the fact that death doesn't work as a convenient reload).

Rogue Spy 02-26-2007 03:49 AM

Jet Trooper and Dark Trooper - can't go without a jetpack lol. Their also very powerful aside from the Storm Troopers/Clones.
