Jawa starts off great for a newbie team if you got him early in the game. He is the character you have to bring in Droid heavy campaign maps, which is a lot of them. He is able to stun droid teams easily if you are lucky. Unfortunately, it is only at 50% chance, so sometimes you don’t stun at all. He does deal good damage with both attacks.

However, Jawa is very fragile and is vulnerable to focus fire attacks and usually the first one to die if you didn’t bring a tank. That is why you need to bring Chewbacca or Poe Dameron to make sure he rarely gets targeted. He pairs very well with Poe Dameron due to his expose ability, dealing bonus 20% health to enemies when using Jawa’s AoE special attack.

He does fall off late game to other strong AoE damage dealers like Hk-47, IG-88, Old Ben and Darth Sidious etc. Therefore, not many use him past mid game.


Campaign Map:4 Stars (4 / 5)
Arena: 3.5 Stars ( 3.5 / 5)
Galactic War:3 Stars (3 / 5)

Verdict: Level until you get better AoE characters. Do not max it, there are better characters.
