|Best damaging first skill with critical bonus||No AoE damage|
|Decent health pool for a droid assassin||Requires Hk-47/IG-88 for full offensive effectiveness|
|Assist attack does bonus and insane damage with another droid||Gear takes quite a bit of time to farm for a 1 star character|

Base and Max Stats
|Special Critical Rate||0||20|
IG-86 is a surprisingly good unit when alone and gets better when you team him up with Hk-47(as leader) and IG-88. Anytime he criticals, you can feel the pain incoming. A great team setup for the high damage droid squad is Hk-47/IG-88/IG-86/Poggle the Lesser/Old Daka. Until we can get a good droid healer, this team will wreck faces when they are highly geared.
Old Daka can revive your droids if they ever go down. Plus, most enemies will get focused down and die before you know it.
The only weakness to building a strong droid squad is the anti-droid characters such as Ima-Gun Di/Dathcha/Jawa/Eeth Koth. You will meet them mostly in the arena, so do not worry too much about it.
Otherwise, you won’t regret getting him to max level and enjoy Max Payne.

Verdict: Max him only if you run a droid squad.
