So, you decided to pick a Bounty Hunter. Fortunately, you are in luck, because the Bounty Hunter is one of the easiest classes to play in PvP in Star Wars The Old Republic. In this SWTOR Guide to Bounty Hunter PvP, we will be discussing exactly why this is the case and what you can do to earn some extra cash from your Bounty Hunter in the first place.
The main ability you have to be aware of when it comes to having success with the Bounty Hunter in PvP is Tracer Missile. This ability does a lot of damage and you can use it over and over to defeat many players. The ability itself does more damage each time you use it since it reduces your targets armor.
What you want to do is be sure to bind Tracer Missile to the “1″ key so that you can press 1 repeatedly whenever you encounter an enemy in player versus player. This may sound a bit ridiculous but the truth is this Tracer Missile strategy is what makes Bounty Hunters so deadly in PvP. If you decided to pick the other advanced spec of Bounty Hunter, you messed up as Tracer Missile is definitely the best ability.
I would not waste too much time with that ability where you fly in the air and shoot missiles on the ground like Boba Fett did in the movies. Any player worth their salt will interrupt that ability so fast, and there is a lag in between flying up and actually dealing damage. All this will accomplish is you wasting time on flying into the air and then getting interrupted. If you want to be a real pro at the Bounty Hunter class all you have to do is to find a way to use Tracer Missile non-stop throughout a match and manage your heat so you do not overheat if you can help it.
