Finally, after so many games, the ability to play as Han Solo, or at least a Han Solo type of character, is available. Smugglers are known for being incredibly sneaky and cunning. They can adapt to a situation faster than most other classes, but that’s because they have to. They make enemies faster than any other class. While they rely on sneaking the most, if they are caught doing something illicit, their handing blaster definitely can get their opinion heard and help them to escape.

For a smuggler, it isn’t about heavy armor or any of that; instead, it’s about comfort and speed. If a smuggler can run away from the situation, it is probably better so he can recover. However, he does rely on a strong blaster that can pack a punch. When doing combat as a smuggler, the ultimate goal is to be sneaky and trick the enemy into make a mistake so that the kill can be made. If nothing else, knee him in the balls.

Smuggler Gameplay Video

Field Recon

As smart and stealthy as Smugglers might be, surveillance recording from various spaceports and secured warehouses has captured them in the act. These images highlight their ability to adapt to almost any situation. They’re careful and cunning when sneaking into enemy territory, but when caught in the open, whether bluffing or gambling, they appear comfortable staging a courageous stand.

Weapons & Armor

They don’t wear fancy armor or carry high-powered blaster rifles, but Smugglers are outfitted for action nonetheless. Wearing comfortable, flexible clothing with some custom modifications, Smugglers are able to stay light on their feet and quick on the draw. Usually carrying a fast-firing blaster or two, Smugglers have everything they need to shoot their way out of trouble. Though style is rarely their intent, it seems to come naturally to Smugglers, and their dashing duds generally complement their roguish charm.

Progression Trailer

Be sure to watch undoubtedly the best progression trailer out of all classes: this one has action, drama, comedy and a whole lot more. It shows off a number of abilities as well as your companion Bowdaar.

Combat Tactics

The Smuggler’s approach to fighting is guileful and improvisational. Preferring to tip the odds in their favor from the start, Smugglers often rely on the element of surprise, using stealth and trickery to catch opponents off guard. Despite the sly tactics, they are more than capable of holding their own in a fair fight. Fast on the draw and a crack shot with a blaster, Smugglers tend to shoot first and be the last ones standing.

Specializations (advanced classes)


The Scoundrel doesn’t have time for politeness or a fair fight. In addition to his trusty blaster the Scoundrel packs a stealth belt, a scattergun and a med pack–everything he needs to get in, knock the enemy for a loop and get out alive. Being invisible works best, but even when Sith fly through the air waving Lightsabers all they get to do is look surprised as the Scoundrel’s scattergun sends them back the way they came. The Scoundrel always shoots first.

  • Blaster ‘Shot Gun’
  • Stealth / Medicine
  • Burst ranged damage or Healing

Scoundrel Skill Trees

  1. Sawbones – The Scoundrel patches his allies up using whatever medical supplies he can scrap together.
  2. Scrapper – Focuses on stealth and using the scatter gun to sneak in, take out the enemy and sneak out.
  3. Dirty Fighting – These tactics leave no trick off-the-table and often leave an enemy crippled or bleeding. Shared skill tree.


Master of the trick shot, the first to dive for cover and willing to take advantage of every opportunity, the Gunslinger and his dual blasters are the perfect team. The Gunslinger can shoot out a man’s legs to keep him from charging, blind him so he can’t get to his weapons or inflict serious injuries for maximum distraction. There’s a right target for ending every disagreement and the Gunslinger knows them like the inside of his ship.

  • Quickdraw / Fast Attacks
  • Ranged DPS
