Millions of voices have been silenced in Star Wars Battlefront

Boba Fett

As a power fantasy with a science-fictional bend, Star Wars Battlefront does an adequate job of giving you the skills to be a Jedi badass or an iron fist of the Galactic Empire. But listen, Jedi and Sith are more overused than my underwear by Thursday. Lightsabers may be cool, but you know what’s better? Jet packs, flamethrowers and portable rockets. Something that the feared Boba Fett has plenty of when he hits the battlefield.

So it shouldn’t be too surprising, to hear that Jango Fett’s pride and joy has been ruling the roost in the three weeks since Star Wars Battlefront launched. That’s according to an infographic from DICE and EA, detailing an Alderaan’s worth of death and destruction. There’s some actual interesting data throw into the mix as well.

Such as players having zero skill judging by the fact that less than 1% of Snowspeeder attacks on AT-ATs have managed to involved a successful tow cable takedown or the fact that the X-Wing has racked up 43.6 million kills in Fighter Squadron, far more than the 26.1 million kills of the rival TIE Fighter pilots out there. As for Boba Fett, gamers have spent 29.8 million minutes playing as the bounty hunter. Luke Skywalker ranked second while Darth Vader threw Emperor Palpatine down the energy shaft of the bottom position.

Here’s the full list of stats, rebel scum. Click to embiggen:

    That’s not really all that much considering they’ve sold 13 million copies? ;P

    “Did you know you can take down an AT-AT with a speeder and a tow cable?”

    No, seeing as the speeder rarely ever spawns due to your rubbish spawn system.

    More X-Wing kills suggests an imbalance.

    Boba Fett is number 1 as he’s INSANELY overpowered, just like almost all the cards in the game.

    Fire whatever retard came up with a homing missile that targets infantry, and the guy who play tested the best guns and went “this is fine and not overpowered at all”.

    $130 for a game with no content, no replay value, no skill required, overpowered weapons, dull offline, not enough weapon variety, unbalanced weapons, overpowered specific heroes, a retarded spawn system….

    There’s a reason this game isnt selling or doing well.
