Star Wars Battlefront is packed with easter eggs and references to the original trilogy, but none so irksome as the walking teddy bears known as ewoks. Players have tried all sorts of methods to exterminate these little furballs, with no success. But just because something's impossible doesn't mean it can't happen, right? Looking at this video, you'd think someone had finally managed to kill an ewok in Battlefront:
I admit: I laughed the first (several) times I watched it. But the closer I looked, the less convinced I was. The proximity mine's smoke hides the ewok's hut well, and the ewok's silhouette sort of glides off the screen a little too perfectly. I asked Johan Lundmark, senior designer on the game, if the kill was real after he linked to the video. His response:
@SamPrell that's beside the point. The emotion when seeing the annoying furball take off is real :)December 10, 2015
I'm gonna go ahead and call this one a myth, then. May rumors of ewok death live long in our memories, right next to Sonic in Super Smash Bros. Melee, and a secret method to save Aerith. And hey, fake or not, it's still funny.
