Star Wars Battlefront 2 introduces a couple of different character classes that allow for players to use a jetpack ability. You may see players jumping around the map and have been wondering how they do it. Simply put, you’ll need to be using a specific character class to use the jetpack ability.
The Aerial Class is the first, and easiest, way to use Jetpack in Star Wars Battlefront 2. Both factions can use a jetpack unit in the game, but to use them you’ll need to purchase them with the credits earned by playing each match.
Each time you die in Star Wars Battlefront 2 in a match you can opt to spend the points you’ve earned during a match. On the Rebel side you can select a “Rocket Jumper” for 2000 Credits in Galactic Assault. For the Empire players can earn “Jet Troopers” which feature similar abilities. These classes features a Jetpack Boost, which thrusts you into the air. It is by default tied to the LB or L1 button.
Classes with Jetpacks can also use a jetpack dash, which allows you to dash forward and this move is by default tied to the RB or R1 button.
Certain Hero classes also feature a jetpack. Boba Fett for example has a special ability which allows him to fly high into the air by activating his jetpack boost as well.
