Hk-47 is a very reliable support, especially in a team with at least 2 droids with him as the leader. He gives bonus critical rate and damage. Alongside his turn meter gain on critical hit, he and his droid allies will get more turns over time.

The best droid combo right now is Hk-47, IG-88, IG-86, Poggle the Lesser and a healer(Old Daka is perfect). Too bad Lobot’s healing is lackluster. The ultimate droid team will be complete once EA creates a good droid healer. Even without a good droid healer, the droid team is very scary at high levels and can decimate any team with ease.

The only thing about him is his slow speed. otherwise, Hk-47 is very useful all round and is great in Galactic War with a high chance to revive when dead.


[usrlist “Campaign Map:4.5” “Arena: 4.5” “Galactic War:4.5”]

Verdict: Max it out if you want a droid team!
