Count Dooku to Arrive in Star Wars Battlefront 2 as Part of the Darth Tyranus Update
Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be updated with the Darth Tyranus patch on Wednesday, January 23rd. As part of the update, players will find the ex-Jedi-turned Sith Lord, Count Dooku, making a return. Players will also see Geonosis added to the Heroes vs Villains Blast and Custom Arcade game modes.
Count Dooku’s melee attacks are highly lethal and he’s able to deflect opposing lightsabers with great efficiency. This is signified by a wider blocking range and less stamina depletion compared to other heroes. It comes at a cost, however, with Dooku lacking in his capability to deflect blaster shots.
Looking at his special Abilities, Dooku unleashes the Lightning Stun to throw enemies within range to the ground, inflicting harm, and leaving them in the open to follow-up attacks.
The Expose Weakness Ability, on the other hand, influences the target with slower movement and an increased amount of damage taken from Dooku and his allies. If Dooku eliminates the target personally by delivering a final blow, this Ability recharges immediately.
Activating the Duelist Ability showcases the true grace of Dooku’s skillset when it comes to lightsaber combat. The Ability changes up his attack sequence, with Dooku performing quick slashes – one hand on his back – with a high damage output.
Count Dooku will also have a number of appearances available including the Dark Ritual skin that will be out for unlock on January 30th.
