Star Wars: BattlefrontFighter Squadron is a game mode that lets you try your hand at aerial combat and destroying enemy fighter and transport ships. Many agree that it is one of the more interesting modes of the game that might even deserve to be expanded upon and turned into a game of its own.
The basic premise is simple: by destroying enemy ships, you can earn up to a hundred points for your team, at which point you win. Killing bots (AI opponents) will give you less points than player kills, so it might be a good strategy to focus on the players as it would help you win easier. Enemy transport ships are an important target if you can lock them down, and also you should aim at protecting your own – sometimes even by letting enemy missiles destroy you instead of the transport.
There are tokens scattered across the map that you should try and acquire. It takes a little effort because they are normally located in areas that are hard to reach, but it pays off: you can get a refresh token, repair token, and a hero token that lets you control a hero ship, which is very powerful and can turn battles in your favor. Slave I, Millennium Falcon, TIE Interceptor and TIE Fighter are among the vehicles you can control.
Overall, Fighter Squadron is a very engaging and interesting game mode that is sure to be quite popular. Make sure you try it out!
