Battlefront 2 General Grievous Abilities, Cards & More

General Grievous Abilities Battlefront 2


It’s almost time for the release of the feared droid leader General Grievous into the world of Star Wars Battlefront 2.

While we’re still a few days out from his official release we have been given a lot of information about the new hero. We were given a screenshot of Grievous which is embedded above and we were also given a look at the Separatist leader’s abilities, cards and more.

If you’re excited about the new hero then you’ll want to read on:


Thrust Surge

General Grievous focuses on a target in front of him and rushes to them while doing a stab motion with all 4 of his lightsabers.

Claw Rush

General Grievous goes down on all 6 limbs and rushes forward, damaging and pushing away any enemies in his path.

Unrelenting Advance

General Grievous spins two lightsabers over his head and can advance on his enemies. While this is active, Grievous blocks any frontal attacks and damages enemies in front of him.

Jedi Hunter

The default appearance for General Grievous will be the Jedi Hunter. When you think of General Grievous, this will be the appearance that you are mostly likely to think of.

Battle Damaged

General Grievous Battle Damaged

If General Grievous wasn’t feared enough, then his Battle Damaged visage will certainly invoke an additional sense of fear.

The updated roadmap for Battlefront 2 reveals pretty much all of the content coming to the game in the immediate future is Clone Wars content. November will bring on an additional skin for Grievous along with bringing his adversary Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Things will slow down in December before picking back up in January and February with Count Dooku and Anakin Skywalker respectively. It remains to be seen where the game will go after that but a well-known leaker in the Star Wars Battlefront community has said two additional Clone Wars-era heroes will be coming eventually.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
