The Magmatrooper is the newest addition to the SWGOH team. He offers bonus attacks on his basic ability. At max level, provides a 50% chance to attack another random target at -35% power on the second shot. This translates to more attacks/damage over the course of 5 turns.

He also has a lot of turn meter manipulation skills, with his special attack reducing enemy turn meters while his unique gives him bonus turn meter if he resists any negative effects.

His health pool and speed is decent than most troopers, so that makes him a good character to have on the dark side.

The downside is that he doesn’t have any special attacks or a leader skill. He is also currently not farmable, so I think you won’t see much of him till EA makes him farmable.


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

Verdict: Gear him if you pulled him and make him your utility tank for the dark side.
