Wookie in Hangar Near X-Wing

All space battles start in the hangar of a ship

In Star Wars, due to highly advanced space travel, there is much extra-planetary conflict. In Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron there are seven instant action space battles.

The Star Wars: Battlefront air combat involves you manually finding targets and manually landing. Star Wars: Battlefront II improved this, adding a lock-on and auto-target feature, but the player still has to land the fighter manually. In Renegade Squadron there is an automatic landing feature and not only an auto-lock, but an auto-pilot, which automatically aims at the target - all the player has to do is fire. It is still possible to aim and land manually, however.

Keeping AliveEdit

Keeping Alive in space can be hard due to the large amount of units in the battle. Staying away from auto-turrets (Unless you are trying to destroy them) and rolling occasionally can help stop someone from locking on to you. Varying your speed also helps.


There are two ways to win:

  1. Destroy all of the enemy’s systems in any order (Shields first): Shields, Life Support, Engines, Bridge, Communication Array, Sensor Array.
  2. Reducing your opponent’s reinforcement count to zero. This is done by destroying enemy units.


In space vehicles have different strengths and weakness, depending on what class they are.


Scout class units are very fast and have fast firing weapons, but they have very weak armor. Newer players often struggle with this class due to their weak armor. They are perfect dogfighters, designed for fighter-to-fighter combat.


The Medium-class fighters are good at destroying enemy systems with their secondary weapon, and are good at destroying enemy fighters using their primary weapon. They are not as good at either of these roles in comparison to the specialised types. They have reasonable speed.


These crafts are slow in comparison to other fighters, but they have a lot of armor and heavy weaponry. They are very effective against ship-based weapons and critical systems.


These vehicles are extremely slow, and have very slow firing weapons. They are only good at destroying stationary targets. They are very easy targets due to their speed, the only thing that keeps them alive is their heavy armor. When the vehicle lands it can be used as a spawn point for friendly troops.

  • Galactic Empire: Imperial Landing Shuttle
  • Rebel Alliance: LAAT/i
  • Galactic Republic: LAAT/i
  • CIS: Droid Gunship


Only the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire have this class. The Special-class vehicles are similar to he medium class, however they are better at each role. They make very suitable bombers and are also fast and have good armor, making them very capable of dogfighting.

Obi-Wan Kenobi in Space

Heroes play a big part in space combat. They are very effective in destroying enemy systems but the only way for them to gain health is to kill enemy units, which they are also good at. You can only become a hero when you are in space and if you land and your special ship is destroyed, you are stuck on ground as you cannot enter other vehicles.
