SWBF2 Heroes Tier List (Best Heroes/Villains in SWBF2)

SWBF2 Hero Tier List
The Heroes & Villians of Star Wars Battlefront 2 are a powerful Force

In Star Wars Battlefront 2, Hheroes and Villians are the pinnacle of gameplay and upon entry onto the battlefield, can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. There are over a dozen of these special characters available, each with signature abilities. They can be grouped into Tiers based on their offensive capabilities, as well as their contributions to the team. Here is a list of the Heroes, divided into S-Tier (the most powerful), A-Tier, and B-Tier, as well as a description of each.


These are the most powerful Heroes, able to single-handedly decimate the opposing forces.

  • Palpatine: His Force Lightning is powerful, even if the capability of shooting through walls was nerfed this past summer.
  • Rey: Her combination of stealth and insight allows her to take aggressive action.
  • Bossk: His access to explosives and the area-of-effect gas attack, along with a good damage absorption, put him at the top of the list.
  • Vader: Two Words: Force Choke. His lightsaber’s reach is long, and his Force powers are simply deadly.


This tier are the Heroes who are a step below the top list, and with the proper support, can lead teams to victory at any time.their team to victory every time.

  • Iden: Aside from being the singleplayer protagonist, she is also a decisive A-level Hero with due to her overwhelming firepower.
  • Yoda: His combat abilities turn him into a whirling dervish of destructive power.
  • Maul: His mobility and skill-sets turn him into the dark spectre that he was in the film.
  • Leia: She has a set of offensive and defensive skills that make her very balanced, whether on attack or defense.


This is list includes the rest of the Heroes, who still represent a powerful Force (pun intended) on the battlefield but lack sufficient power to make a difference completely turn the tide in battle.

  • Lando: His attacks are of average power and smoke grenade is only useful at certain points.
  • Han: Everyone’s favorite smuggler carries a powerful blaster, but his abilities are not powerful enough to dominate the battlefield.
  • Chewie: Again, he has a powerful blaster, but struggles against multiple opponents due to its slower fire rate.
  • Kylo: Much like his film incarnation, he is more bark than bite. His force powers are impressive, but his lightsaber attacks are not powerful enough to hold off crowds.
  • Luke: His abilities are weaker than ever other Heroes, so he has a hard time with massed assaults.
  • Boba: Due to extensive nerfing, his attacks are more of a nuisance rather than a decisive killer.

1. Palpatine (S-Tier):

Powerful Sith Lord

Palpatine serves as a Hero and player killer due to his Force lightning and ability to buff.

2. Rey (S-Tier)

Awakened warrior

Rey’s abilities create unbeatable combinations.

3. Bossk (S-Tier)

Trandoshan Sith Lord

Bossk is one of the most powerful of the heroes based on his weapons.

4. Vader (S-Tier)

Dark warrior

Vader is the master of both the lightsaber and the Force choke, making him very feared on the battlefield.

5. Iden (A-Tier)

Imperial special forces

Iden is a weapons master, allowing her to aggressively take on other Heroes.

6. Yoda (A-Tier)

Master of the Jedi Order

Yoda operates best as an attacker, going after enemy troops while also buffing allies.

7. Maul (A-Tier)

Dangerous Sith Lord

Maul’s combat strength turns him into a juggernaut.

8. Leia (A-Tier)

Rebel leader

Leia’s combat abilities put her in the middle, as she is able to gun down enemy troops while using her shield to secure objectives or chokepoints

9. Lando (B-Tier)

Smuggler and gunfighter

Lando’s weapons are only best at medium range, and his grenade is mostly useless, so this puts him near the bottom of the list.

10. Han (B-Tier)

Dashing rogue

Han’s blaster is iconic, but his abilities put an upper limit on his combat prowess.

11. Chewbacca (B-Tier)

Mighty warrior

A Wookiee’s rage may be powerful, but its single-minded focus puts this mighty warrior near the bottom.

12. Kylo Ren (B-Tier)


Kylo’s limited speed and only midline Force abilities prevent him from serving in a great capacity for his team.

13. Luke Skywalker (B-Tier)

Last of the Jedi

Luke’s Force powers and lightsaber abilities require additional training before he can become a powerful Jedi.

14. Boba Fett (B-Tier)

Masked warrior

Boba Fett has become the hunted, not the hunter. Having been nerfed considerably since his original appearance in Star Wars Battlefront, his abilities become of minimal effectiveness to a team’s tactics.
