SWGoH GameChangers: Bounty Hunter Embo Set to Join Galaxy of Heroes


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.

SWGoH - EmboSo 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.



CATEGORIES: Bounty Hunter, Scoundrel, Attacker
Deadly Bounty Hunter Attacker that consumes his Protection to boost his damage

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.

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.

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.

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.
