Is FINN a valid HvV pick?

I personally must say: Yes. Han, Anakin and Lando almost became invincible with his support. But you need to know when you should and should not use big deal, don’t just waste it at the start of the match.
If someone on my team uses Finn I usually massage him saying I will stay with him.

What do you think?

    Very high-value in both modes. An Anakin paired with Finn is god.
    Heart of darkness beateth, Ultima
    Iron enigma treateth, Ultima
    Shielding light retreateth, Ultima
    Hydaelyn defeated. Ah, Ultima


    The fact is that if you're running it's because you suck, and the game shouldn't pander to players who suck.

  • Yes, way more than Trashma the "underrated" hero. Not only can he fight but he also provides unvaluable stuff to the whole team.
  • Yes, but only if you stick as a team. Alone he gets destroyed due to his low hp.
    Hech4Lyf!
  • Yes ... & no

    In a casual match, yes, you can do well with Finn. His big deal can actually be very good. He can also counter Fett & Palps pretty effectively.

    However you’ll virtually never see a Finn in competitive private 4v4s (yes I know private matches “aren’t a thing” however you can still do it)

    In a coordinated team, sure. He's pretty much a counter for non-lightsaber villains while also boosting friendlies. Otherwise he gets destroyed easily.

    Yes. I once got a huge amount of abuse from my team mates when I joined a party and played as Finn. But guess who killed the troublesome Boba more times than anyone else. And buffed the team every minute or so. He does need protecting though.
  • One big thing to consider with Finn is the map. On maps with lots of vertical movement and emphasis on mobility he can sometimes be pretty bad. He can't sprint with Big Deal and Undercover Agent grants only a tiny speed boost. Saber Heroes and some other Dark Side villains can easily outmaneuver and kill him on big, vertical maps like Yavin IV and Mos Eisley. His Deadeye can partially compensate for this but can be entirely blocked by a lightsaber.

    Conversely, on flatter or smaller maps he can really shine. His Big Deal can buff the entire team giving them 50% damage reduction, faster cooldowns, and bonus health. Undercover Agent can highlight enemies and Deadeye can melt Palpatine and Boba. This is further amplified by a team that knows how to cover Finn and stick by him for maximum benefit.

  • If you have a team that sticks together, absolutely. His Big Deal health and damage reduction boosts greatly benefit your teammates. His Deadeye is great against Boba, Boskk, Palpatine, and Phasma (not so much Iden since she can pop her shield).

  • Yep, but team needs to understand he's probably the weakest hero when it comes 1v1.

    If your team stick together then yeah if not then no
  • Finn will be called op if we get hero blast

    Viable, but probably one of the weakest choices at the moment.

    If they ever buff his aim bot ability, he will be OP.

    I would suggest buffing Undercover a little bit and make the aim bot work better on Boba. Also make him move a little faster during Big Deal (or whatever his health boost ability is called).

    You need to stop trolling. You need to be actually good at the game before you can troll people...

    I am good.

    Hmm, iced you two straight rounds with you getting 0 elms and you raged quit when my Maul beat your Luke.... again, your trolling is bad as your play.

    You can play against each other?

    Finn is one of the most powerful characters in HvV, I use it only when I play with competent friends, indeed the power of finn depends on the power of your allies and the team play in place, when you have jedi who protects you, finn is literally a thorn in the foot of your opponent

  • I like playing as Finn but only if you have a competent team. He definitely needs protection. If I'm up against a team with Finn in it then I try and take him out as much as possible as he's a game changer.

    He also has something they can try

    But it might not help his extreme lack of mobility, the current spawns, and target system all work against him

    "I have never died to a Finn"
  • He is valid but underwhelming. Deadeye, deadeye, deadeye is what it feels like with the occasional big deal. What i mean by occasional is that it slows him down to make him an easy target for saber villains so it is very situational in hvv. His playstyle is rather boring for hvv and i wish they would give him a buff to his big deal (make him be able to sprint) or rework undercover (i would prefer this because it is a boring abillity)
  • Boom!

    Finn is one of my favorite picks for HvV, and the only disappointing thing about him for me is that he doesn’t have any skins.

    Agree or a bloodied helmet (though that might be considered too “graphic”)

    Bloodied helmet would be definitely cool, pretty sure it couldn’t be that graphic though, considering parts of Grievous’s brain is showing on shattered.

    I would totally lay one on john boyega. But if he wanted to make a grand sacrifice, I wouldn't stand in his way.

    My Finn is still at level Two since when he was added very early on

    But he’s still great on longer range than Lando when ever I play as him

    Finn and Phasma currently sit at level 3, neglected and forgotten. I only break out Finn to deal with troublesome Boba’s.

    He is awesome in GA for this reason. Lando i feel is better for hvv because he has a stun and that makes him more slippery for saber heroes. Finn is one of my favorite characters and i have him maxed. Rarely ever play him in hvv. When i do it is when i have a squad i know will peel for me and will benefit from my buffs.

    Hopefully they kill her character before the opening credits are over in Ep9
