In summary

As Bloodspiller covers in his video,  dodge roll can be effectively used to take you out of dangerous situations. You can increase your chances of survival and make it even more difficult for opponents to take you out. The strategies that are shown in the video will help you achieve that.

If you played the original Star Wars Battlefront that came out in 2015, then you know that things have changed in terms of rolling. Back then, a character could consistently roll around their opponent which made it difficult, if not frustrating, to hit someone. As Bloodspiller covers in his video, SWBFII has fixed this issue. You can roll into sets of two rolls before entering a cooldown period. This is an important difference to keep in mind when you attempt to dodge roll.
