The Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes roster is set to expand yet again as the Dark Side is set to welcome a new Bounty Hunter to their ranks. With the Dark Side already significantly outnumbered by 20+ characters, the newly added Bounty Hunter will be the 8th to be included in the faction which saw some significant improvements earlier in 2018 with a rework to several members, the addition of Bounty Hunter contracts and the addition of Bossk to the game.
So who is this new Bounty Hunter in SWGoH? Well it is none other than Embo, a Kyuzo male Bounty Hunter from the Clone Wars era. While Embo was quite a force in his time, it is unknown if his pet anooba Marrok will be included in the game at any point or if his saucer-shaped starship, the Guillotine, will be playable in the near future. Let’s take a look at his SWGoH kit below.
UNIT NAME: Embo
CATEGORIES: Bounty Hunter, Scoundrel, Attacker
Deadly Bounty Hunter Attacker that consumes his Protection to boost his damage
Basic: DISMANTLING SHOT
FINAL TEXT: Dispel all buffs and deal Physical damage to target enemy.
Special 1: KYUZO WAR HELMET (Cooldown 3)
FINAL TEXT: Deal Physical damage to target enemy. This attack deals bonus damage equal to 35% of Embo’s Max Protection. Then, Embo loses 50% Protection.
Unique 1: WAY OF THE KYUZO
FINAL TEXT: (ZETA) Embo can’t be Critically Hit. Embo also has +30% Offense when he has Protection and +30% Critical Chance when he has no Protection. When Embo receives damage from an attack, if he has no Protection, he gains Foresight for 2 turns.
Leader: THE QUIET ASSASSIN
FINAL TEXT: (ZETA) All Bounty Hunters gain +50% Counter Chance and +50% Health Steal. When a Bounty Hunter ally scores a Critical Hit during their turn, they gain Offense Up for 1 turn. When Embo is in the Leader slot, and not the Ally slot, the following Contract is active:
Contract: Damage an enemy without buffs 15 times (Only Bounty Hunter allies can contribute to the Contract.)
Reward: All Bounty Hunter allies gain +50% Offense. When a Bounty Hunter ally uses a basic ability, they deal bonus damage equal to 7% of the target’s Max Protection. All Bounty Hunter allies have their Payouts activated.
Contract: EMBO’S PAYOUT
FINAL TEXT: Whenever Embo receives Rewards from a Contract, he also gains the following Payout. (Contracts are granted by certain Bounty Hunter Leader Abilities.)
Payout: Embo takes a bonus turn after scoring a Critical Hit. Embo can’t take consecutive bonus turns. Embo gains a new Special ability “Elusive Strikes.”
An early look at Embo’s kit has our staff leaning towards Offense, Critical Chance and/or Critical Damage mods to start – more will be added when we review Embo in our best character mods for SWGoH section of the site.
