Star Wars Battlefront’s Outer Rim DLC launched just three days ago (at time of writing), bringing with it a raft of multiplayer functionality and content, which has invited mixed reception. Map variety is a particularly sticky sticking point among players, but most agree that the new weapons are satisfyingly Star Wars-y.
Thankfully, players who are only interested in new weapons can test them without actually buying Outer Rim. As reddit user camzabob noticed, all players can go hands-on with the DLC’s weapons in single-player mode.
Presumably, this includes the DL-18 and DLT-19X rifles, which are normally obtained via Hutt Contrats. However, players have yet to confirm the testability of the T-7 Ion Disruptor grenade, which is technically a powerup.
Naturally, players cannot step into the shoes of playable heroes Greedo and Nien Numb without picking up the DLC. For more details on Outer Rim’s content, have a look at its official patch notes.
