The First Order TIE pilot is a late game character, but he is very strong, especially with a First Order squad. He deals high single target burst damage and hurts even more if the enemy has less than 50% health. He fits into the glass cannon role quite well. Quite fragile with low hp but hits like a truck.

He is best paired with a First Order team that includes Captain Phasma(Leader), First Order Officer, Kylo Ren, First Order Stormtrooper/Healer. You will deal lots of “off turn” damage. It is very OP. I have gotten destroyed by this team before in the Arena. 2 of my characters died after the 2nd turn. It was brutal.

However, he is hard to farm and you won’t have the luxury to get your First Order team going until the later stages of the game(50+).


[usrlist “Campaign Map:4” “Arena: 5” “Galactic War:4”]

Verdict: Upgrade other characters first. Leave him till you can farm shards for him.
