Learn about all the new abilities for Chewbacca's character in this guide to Star Wars Battlefront: Death Star.

All owners of the Star Wars: Battlefront Season Pass can now download a new DLC, titled “Death Star”. It includes two new heroes that are very important to the lore of Star Wars – Chewbacca and Bossk.

This quick guide is dedicated to the famous wookie and his set of abilities. Chewbacca is a slower and heavier character with a huge health pool and a powerful bowcaster. You can be sure that he will be very effective at the uplink defense, a role that is much needed in Star Wars: Battlefront.

Ability #1: Multi-Bolts

This ability is tightly connected to Chewbacca’s bowcaster and his personal trait – Furious Firing. When combined, the wookie will be able to fire up to eight bolts in one shot, which is extremely powerful.

How does this work? Multi-Bolts doubles the number of bowcaster’s shots, and Furious Firing adds an extra bolt with each level. So, the maximum number you get with his trait is 4 bolts and then it gets doubled by this ability.

Tips and tricks:
  • Chewbacca’s weapon is the first in the game that allows you to modify the area of damage, so use it in combination with Multi-Bolts to control the periphery.
  • Multi-Bolts ability has a charge meter that makes things a bit slower, but if you can wait a bit and charge it to the maximum, you can be sure that it will deal enough damage to take down any type of enemy.

Ability #2: Mighty Roar

This is a morale boost ability that inspires Chewbacca’s companion heroes by giving them high armor, and all rebel soldiers will gain an extra Berserker effect, as well. The wookie himself will gain high armor and damage, too.

Tips and tricks:
  • This ability is most effective before you need to make one massive push towards the enemy lines. It will significantly increase your chances in clearing the frontline.
  • It can be a bit tricky to achieve the maximum effect of this ability (i.e. affecting the biggest number of companions), so you need to synchronize beforehand and work as a team when activating the Mighty Roar.

Ability #3: Ground Slam

This ability is as simple as it can get – Chewbacca shows his strength by pounding the ground and dealing an AOE damage to all enemies around him.

Tips and tricks:
  • Ground Slam is most effective when you can make Chewbacca jump from the top, thus catching the enemies by surprise and increasing the radius of damage.
