I have been playing SW Battlefront for quite some time and I have noticed that sometimes (while shooting at a CPU) they seem to roll away which results into me shooting out into nowhere. I was wondering if I could do the same; it would be really useful. How do you roll(dodge) away?
Yes, I believe the default key is alt. More importantly, if you roll away from an explosion it seems to negate some of the damage; this makes thermal detonators easier to avoid.
If you mean star wars battlefront 1, you have to use a strafe key and push spacebar.
The default key for this is hold Alt then press A for roll left and hold Alt then press D for roll right.
