The Battle Station game mode was a new addition to Battlefront with the Death Star expansion pack. Battle Station consists of three stages and is the first mode that takes place in space. The stages consist of taking down a Star Destroyer, rescuing R2-D2, and blowing up the Death Star. If the Rebels are successful at all three stages then they will claim victory.
In the first stage, Rebels must destroy Imperial fighters in order to call in the Y-Wings for a bombing run. As soon as the Y-Wings complete their run, the Star Destroyer will be vulnerable to Rebel fighter weaponry. This is when the Rebels must focus on three weak points, and destroy them. Two of them are on top of the ship and the last one is underneath. If the Rebels can destroy all three points, they will move onto stage 2.
Now that the ship is history, it’s time to rescue R2-D2. The Rebels must make their way to the droid unit where they must escort him back to the extraction point. When they do reach him, the first player who interacts with him will be able to play as R2-D2. They will be able to use his special abilities that will help them reach the extraction point. Once they free R2-D2, then they will move onto the final stage.
The final stage of Battle Station is all about blowing up the Death Star. Rebel fighters must make their trench runs on the surface reaching several checkpoints. The game will choose three random people to be trench runners and these are the players that must reach the checkpoints. When they take them all, it will explode. It will show torpedoes entering the exhaust port just like the movie, A New Hope.
