Star Wars: Battlefront II Reveals the ARC Trooper and Commando Droid

A new game mode is coming to Star Wars Battlefront II later this month, and with it comes two new kinds of reinforcements. Thanks to the latest Community Transmission from DICE, we get our first looks at the ARC trooper as well as the Commando droid.

Check them out:

The Advanced Recon Commando Trooper/ARC trooper is a dual-wielding soldier and will allow the player to fire each gun independently. His abilities include a buff to his main gun, a pulse emitter that reveals enemies in a battlefield, and a shock trap that knocks down enemies when activated.

As for the BX-series Droid Commando, it makes use of a modified battle droid blaster and a melee vibrosword. This droid can make a smoke screen as well as an ability that reveals all enemies on the field. It can also make use of the vibrosword which kind of works like Phasma's staff—three swipes and the ability goes on cooldown.

These two new classes are called Infiltrator Reinforcements and they come with their own unique star cards. While it's fun to have new Clone Wars content come to the game, I'm kind of hoping the add some material for the original trilogy and sequel trilogy era as well. Hopefully DICE comes up with something before December when Episode IX comes out.

Star Wars Battlefront II is now playable for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The update comes out March 26.
