Bounty Hunter

Contents:

The Bounty Hunter is the greedy, selfish, doesn’t care who has to die to get the job done type of character. While the Sith Empire would rather those that work for them being a part of the Empire, they make exceptions when it comes bounty hunters who get the job done. The bounty hunter has to understand that there is no one in this galaxy that they can trust completely because credits are the most important thing to a bounty hunter. If the bounty hunter messes up, his best friend could be the one the Empire hires to kill him off. Chances off, that best friend will do it if the pay is right.

For combat, the Bounty Hunter relies on strong armor to protect against damage. They come to the field with the strongest weapons available, but also make sure to have some backup gadgets just in case. They don’t want to come to the stage without all of their bases covered. Preparation is key to the bounty hunter. Using their rocket pack, they are able to rise above the field and shoot down onto their enemies when the bounty hunter achieves the correct level. The bounty hunter is the equivalent to the Trooper class.

Bounty Hunter Gameplay Video

Field Recon

Bounty Hunters come and go as they wish across the galaxy, some working alone, others in groups. Though not uncommon for them to pursue targets in the core worlds, the majority of any Bounty Hunter’s work takes place in the Outer Rim where wary and elusive targets often seek places where they can ‘drop off the radar’.

Weapons & Armor

Preparation is the Bounty Hunter’s best defense, and cutting-edge protective gear is standard equipment for most Bounty Hunters. Artisans spend months and even years hand-crafting the Bounty Hunters heavy armor to ensure it offers superior resistance to all manner of weaponry, and that each suit will still allow maximum flexibility and versatility. Offense is just as critical as defense, however, and powerful weaponry is necessary for any Bounty Hunter who might have to shoot his way out of a messy situation. It’s not unheard of for a Bounty Hunter to spend as many credits on an advanced blaster as others might spend to purchase an entire starship.
