SWGoH: Best Mods for Boba Fett

Welcome to the Best Mods for Boba Fett, another article in a series about Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes where we take a look at the best mods for individual characters. While I do not claim to have all of the answers in this game, I do my research and have used every toon I write about extensively.

Best Mods for Boba FettBounty Hunter Boba Fett is described by SWGoH as a “ruthless Bounty Hunter attacker who ignores taunts, ability blocks and self-revives.” As SWGoH has progressed, Boba Fett has gone from a mediocre character to a high-end toon after getting a rework in late 2016 and again in April 2018 as part of the Bounty Hunter faction rework. A fan-favorite since the early days of Star Wars, let’s take a look at what kind of mods and stats we need to focus on to maximize Boba Fett in SWGoH.

Main Focus: While every character needs Speed, which I say in almost every mods article, Boba Fett is most effective when he has high Speed, Potency, Critical Chance and Critical Damage. Because this game puts such an emphasis on speed, push his speed number as high as possible – in the upper 200s for sure.

Additional Areas to Focus: Potency, Critical Chance, Critical Damage, Offense and survivability are the other areas to focus on given Boba Fett’s kit. If Speed is 1A, Potency should be 1B, and this really does not change when you get him to Relic 8 as needed to unlock the Executor Capital Ship. Ideally, Boba Fett’s Speed is so high that he has one of the first attacks in most battles, inflicts Ability Block with his AOE special attack Death From Above, and the battle progresses accordingly. In addition, high potency adds more DOTs and can add Ability Block which adds value and power to his Execute special.

Speaking of the Execute special attack which deals 30% more damage for each debuff on the enemy when used, Critical Chance and Critical Damage can enhance this and all of Boba Fett’s attacks. When used as a leader, he grants 10% CC and 50% CD to all allies, so enhancing these numbers will make him a more offensive character. In addition, under a Jango Fett lead he gains +30 Speed and potentially +35% Offense and +25% CC, so adding Offense is a good move. Finally, Boba is a bit squishy (not as much when leading a high potency Bounty Hunter squad), so adding health, protection and defense will help his survivability. When under a Bossk lead, Bounty Hunters gain +50% Max Protection and +50% Tenacity plus +100% Defense when at full Health, so this helps out a lot.

One note is that Boba Fett’s Payout now “has +50 Speed and an additional Defense Penetration equal to 200% of his Defense Penetration” per the in-game text. So a fast Boba Fett remains very important, but Defense Penetration is not gained from mods at this time so that continues to be a gear-driven stat.

In-game Mod Recommendations: Critical Damage & Critical Chance. As long as you focus on high Speed and Potency secondary stats CC and CD sets are the best way to go.


Ideal Mod Setup for SWGoH Boba Fett:

Boba Fett is one of those SWGoH toons who greatly benefits from being properly modded. You can either choose a set of two Critical Chance or Potency mods to go along with the four CD mods suggested in-game. Knowing full well the difficulty of finding the ideal mods in this game, here is my recommended mod setup for the Boba Fett:

  • Transmitter (Square) – Critical Chance or Potency mod with focus on offense and secondary focus on critical chance, speed, offense and protection
  • Receiver (Arrow) – Critical Damage with a focus on speed – all other stats gained are bonus, but CC and potency are preferred
  • Processor (Diamond) – Critical Damage mod with focus on defense and secondary focus on speed, potency, health and protection
  • Holo-Array (Triangle) – Critical Damage mod with a focus on critical damage – all other stats gained are bonus, but speed and potency are preferred
  • Data-Bus (Circle) – Critical Damage mod with focus on protection and secondary focus on critical chance, speed, defense and potency
  • Multiplexer (Plus) – Critical Chance or Potency mod with a focus on potency – all other stats gained are bonus, but CC and speed are preferred

  1. Have you ever tried an all Bounty Hunter team to take full advantage of his leader abilities?

    Sorry for putting this here, but I didn’t see any other area for leaving messages/questions. When will the Bossk mod list be available? Other characters that were introduced after him already have theirs up.
