How do you do well as Finn?

I was just wondering if anyone could help me with Finn. Do not mistake me for a noob, most of my hero’s except 4 not counting Finn are to level 25. I just struggle with him. He is currently at level 11 for me and I always never make the leader board with him on HvV. He is also the best character for Boba to Sabotage. I know because I love sabotaging Finns. So back to the main topic. Anyone have tips?

  • Finn is powerful and a great counter to Maul, Boba and Palps. Aim high and roll a lot. His aim bot is pretty ridiculous. I personally use all 3 of his aim bot cards as his others are pretty meh. I’m speaking from an HVV perspective.

    Okay. I will try to keep the starcards just for his deadeye ability. Thank you for the help.

    All 3 aimbot cards for HvV? That sounds a bit.. Counterproductive, as 2 of them need you actually getting kills with the damn thing, and I'm pretty sure that no hero goes down from full health with 1 use of deadeye. @BucksawBoushh

    That being said, @Iceninja , my personal experience with Finn is not as someone who tops the leaderboards, but as someone who ensures that your 4 man team will never ever lose a teamfight.

    I run the "Restore Big Deal when headshot", "Increased Deadeye target radius" and "If Big Deal hits 3 people, Recharge it faster." star cards.

    What you do when you fight is activate Big Deal, then try to score some head potshots, because everytime you do, Big Deal goes up by 15%. That's some 2-3 seconds, per headshot. And it can make a world of difference for say, an Anakin, or a Han in your party. A Han with faster recharges and no overheat on his gun quickly becomes a terrifying force, and if you actually do get attacked, everyone affected has 50% reduced damage and some bonus health.

    Deadeye is a very strong ability against mobile heroes like Palps, or Maul, or Boba. They quickly realize that jumping / dashing around is to no avail, and have to rethink their approach. And if you're protected by your team's saber heroes (Which is literally what they're there for.) then, while you probably won't top the boards or anything, you will be the reason your team wins with a 7 score difference.

    Finn is extremely high value in any given game mode he's in. He shines in GA, and if his team stays around him rather than run off on their own, he guarantees victory in HvV too.

    the way you play is fine but 3 deadeye cards are legit and you can kill full health heroes with deadeye I usually top the scoreboard with Finn with all 3 cards.

    edit: just want to make it clear its mainly the lower health Villains that can die from full health from one use of deadeye though odds are the enemy is not all ways gonna have everyone running around at full health anyway.

    just keep your distance from the enemy and shoot them with deadeye then use big deal to lower its cool down unless your actually taking damage then id use it while using deadeye places like the top of the catwalks on Endor and on top of the cliffs on Geonosis are good spots for him to use deadeye just keep your distance and get up on high spots if you can. I play him selfishly but it works you will have deadeye up a lot if you lower its cool down with big deal and when deadeye is active your enemys are either going to die or take a ton of damage unless they find cover.

    I should try it myself sometime. It seems curious though. One card needs you to get 3 deadeye kills for the 12 extra damage to kick in. Does that affect future skill uses too, or just the one Deadeye?

    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.

    I actually dont know lmao I just all ways took all 3 cards cause his deadeye just shreds people and I use big deal selfishly to lower my cool downs so its up a lot I guess I would have to either test it or look at the wording on the card but the extra damage one might not be 100% necessary but I take it non the less it all comes down to personal preference.

    It’s just the one Deadeye.
  • If in HvV, run some the big deal increase per headshot and his recharge decrease when near allies and one Deadeye card. Headshot often. Sadly he’s not easy to level because he’s the best support in the game. Try getting a 2x exp weekend and level him up. With purple cards, he’s in the LS Nightmare comp.

    This is before the saber combat patch. So he could have effectively button mashed and won
  • Buffing your team. Especially Anakin
  • The only way to be good with finn is going against bad players. If u fought a full good group in HvV, u will die every time. I only use finn when having fun.
  • He is good but usually only if your team mates keep Saber heroes away from you.

    Can't do much with deadeye when Vader, Kylo and Dooku are up in your grill.

    Don’t listen to this guy, Finn is a key part of any composition, while he doesn’t receive much points he definitely is a good placement in a lineup.
