Best Weapons in Battlefront 2

There is quite an assortment of armaments to choose from in the arsenal at player’s disposal in the latest Star Wars Battlefront game. But the weapons that we’ll outline below are some of the best that we’ve found during our time with the game. These weapons range across multiple types, and players should find the weapon that fits best with their playstyle and give it a try to see if it works well for them.


This weapon for the Assault class is tough to unlock, as it tasks players with earning a total of 200 kills to unlock it, but it is definitely worth the investment that you’ll make it you enjoy running and gunning in Battlefront 2. While it lacks range, and the damage isn’t that great, it has a very high rate-of-fire that more than makes up for its weaknesses. It also features a fast cooldown, which means you’ll be able to get off more rounds quicker, and cool the weapon down quicker as well.


This Heavy class weapon is locked behind the final kill milestone, so you’ll need to score 500 kills total in the Heavy class to unlock it. Don’t worry too much, though, as the weapon itself is very well worth the time spent murdering your enemies, as it features a great fire rate, as well as a good set of range, damage, and cooling power statistics. It’s a deadly weapon for any that enjoy playing with the Heavy class troops, and it even has an alternate firing mode that will allow you to release a concussive blast at your enemy, knocking them into a stunned state.


This Specialist weapon is great for those that like to sit back from the front lines and pick off their enemies, and it offers some of the most well-rounded statistics out of any of the weapons in the game. It’s the best sniper rifle for almost any situation, and it boasts a good rate-of-fire, range, and cooling power.


If you enjoy playing as an Officer, then you’ll definitely want to check out the SE-44C. You’ll need 500 kills with the Officer class to unlock it, but it offers one of the class’ best set of statistics. It’s a fully automatic blaster pistol, and it offers a decent setup of range, damage, cooling power, and rate-of-fire. Basically, it’s like holding a mini-assault rifle in one hand. When used correctly it can be devastating to your enemies.

These are some of the best weapons that you’ll find in Battlefront 2, and while they may take you a bit to unlock, they are more than worth the time that you’ll invest into them.
