The C-3PO Legendary Event is set to begin on Friday, December 14th and will be the first time that players of Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes can unlock the Human Cyborg Relations specialist. Using their best squad of five Ewoks, the addition of C-3PO will surely enhance multiple factions in SWGoH as seen in his kit below. Be sure to follow our live blog of the C-3PO event starting Friday morning around 7 am ET to see what requirements are needed to unlock and power up C-3PO.
For SWGoH, C-3PO will have a Hermit Yoda style role where he does not actually attack, but the droid will have five, yes five unique abilities, two of which feature a Zeta upgrade. Details below.
An early look at mods for C-3PO has me leaning toward Health and Potency. More on this once I can study the kit more closely and review the footage provided to the GameChangers and open him myself.
And now, without further ado, the kit for C-3PO followed by links to videos produced by our fellow EA SWGoH GameChangers.
