The Geonosian Soldier is surprisingly good and is someone you can get early on. That means you get a good attacker for the dark side very early in the game.
His basic attack is really good because the odds of doing bonus damage is high with offense up. His assist ability is on a 3 turn cooldown. With his speed, he is able to pull off many assists in extended fights. He also lowers the cooldown of skills of the other ally. Very useful indeed.
He is best paired with Poggle the Lesser, Hk-47, IG-86 and IG-88. You can also run Old Daka in this team and take out maybe IG-88 or IG-86. It is a good and strong droid/geonosian team.

|Galactic War:||(4 / 5)|
Verdict: Gear and max him if you want the high damage droid team.
