I can't believe we have gotten this far and have not
reviewed little ol' Doombot! Well, here he is in all
his abusiveness. He has pretty good HP for only
9pts. A 17 DEF isn't bad either, but let me tell you
something...This little trashcan has a bit of luck
about him that might as well make that 17 a 29 DEF.
I swear i miss more shots on this little trash can
than i do attacking Jedi like Vader and Exar. If i
need two shots to hit, i can just about guarantee
you i will miss one even if i am rolling 3s!
People always seem to forget that this little guy
can attack other droids. I have had some fun games
where i have zipped him around taking on med droids
and battle droids. Since i am not using tow, my
opponent never knows if they should bother taking
him out or not. Override is not only a solid ability
despite today's Ugnaughts, but being the first to
have this ability he was rather frustrating to fight
when he first came out because there was no answer
to him. Then you have his main ability - his flying
tow cable. This makes R2 a must for almost any squad
that is republic. He can take your Jedi into and out
of trouble as long as you can keep him alive and get
off some nice double/triple attacks. Not only do the
Jedi love him, but he almost single handedly made
Jango a top tier piece to rival Boba, bounty hunter.
100pts: Yep, use him! If you are running anything
that can be republic based, you really need to use
him. While he won't do much, the power he gives to
his towee, is just too good to pass.
150pts: Yep same here! Now you have tons of room to
get him in there, so once you decide who you are
building your squad around this should be the next
piece to go into it. Here R2 forms the heart of the
JIS (Jedi Interference Squad). You take a power
shooter like Aurra, Jango BH, or Boba BH and then
use R2 to fly them around to get the best shots
while you use a screen of Jedi to keep your opponent
from going after your big shooter.
200pts: Even more so here! At 150 and 200, your
override wont work quite as well, but the sheep
power of his towing is not to be underestimated. As
i said anything republic/fringe based should use him
if you have a big shooter/Jedi.
One final note, if you dont have him, it is not the
end of the world. I still say get him, but look to
characters with Master speed or General Kenobi for
movement help. While not as good, they will help
until you can get him. Being from Revenge of the
Sith, he is getting harder and harder to find.
