All Playable Star Wars: Battlefront 2 Heroes: Dark Side

dark side heroes battlefront 2

Dark Side heroes in Battlefront 2 are some of the coolest heroes in the game, especially after EA has introduced a lot more since the launch of the game in 2017. Since then, the game has seen plenty of general quality of life updates and an even bigger amount of content updates including the Battle of Scarif Update in April, 2020. Unfortunately, this was the final major content update that the game will receive, though it brought with it Instant Action and Missions game modes, the Scarif Beach map, new cosmetics including the Old Master skin for Darth Maul (an absolute must). Over the years, a wide range of heroes, villains, and vehicles have been introduced into the game, filling out the Hero and Villain rosters just a bit more than they were at launch. So how many Star Wars: Battlefront 2 heroes are available to play right now? What abilities do these heroes have to offer players?
