Starfighter Assault Tips

You can see what abilities a starship has by pressing Y or Triangle on the ship while waiting in the lobby. This will show you a complete breakdown of all the ship’s abilities, which is something you’ll want to know as you go into the game, as it will allow you to make a solid game plan.

While playing the objective is important in Starfighter Assault, you shouldn’t be afraid to veer off from the main area to take out a fleeing enemy ship. The less enemy ships on the playing field, the better off you’re going to be in the long run. It’s not a bad idea to chase people down, but you should also be sure to hold close to the objectives, that way you are always ready to retaliate against the enemy if they take an objective.

You should also make sure you’re making use of any Star Cards that you have for the different ships in Starfighter Assault. Star Cards can be used at any time by pressing X or Square on your controller, while hovering over any ship type before the match actually begins. This will allow you to make use of better abilities and weapons, which is something you’ll need to do to stay ahead of your enemies.

Starfighter Assault is basically an attack and defend game mode where one team has to defend an objective, while the other has to attack it. Depending on which team you are placed on, your objective may change throughout the match. For example, as a Rebel/Republic fighter, your main goal will be to destroy an Imperial/Droid Army ship. But, the objective itself will change quite a bit as you destroy different parts to eventually take down the ship altogether.

If you keep these things in mind, then you’ll be able to hold your own against your enemies and take down your objectives.
