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.

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?


Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?

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

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

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


I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I don't know the answer.

Engineer:
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).

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.

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.)

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.

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).

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.

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.

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...

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

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.

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.

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

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).


God is a placebo with nasty side effects.
