Tips when playing Support in Star Wars Hunters

Star Wars Hunters has a collection of really good Support characters. However, they all work best in different situations. When deciding which support character to play, you need to take a look at your team composition, as well as the game mode and map you will be playing on.

When playing Support, the most important thing is keeping an eye on your teammates while getting out of the way of enemy attacks. You will get targeted, which is common in shooter games like this.

How to play Zaina in Star Wars Hunters

Zaina is the first Support you will unlock, and she can be a bit tough to get good at. Her main tool is the Bacta Bomb, which she throws straight down to the ground and heals everyone in range. Keep in mind that the effects are instant, so you need to be right next to your teammates if you want them to get healed.

Stick close to a Tank, as they will usually take most of the damage. I especially like playing with a Sentinel when I am Zaina due to his Shield. You can also heal his Stormtroopers, making sure they dole out a lot of damage before the Ult is over.

Don't forget to look out for any of your Damage Hunters that are nearby and might be in danger. I wouldn't go running around the map with her too much, as she doesn't have that high mobility. However, do implement her dodge rolls if you are left alone with an enemy. It will reduce the heat of your weapon instantly.

How to play Skora in Star Wars Hunters

Compared to Zaina, who needs to stay close to her teammates, Skora can keep her distance so long as you don't have issues hitting targets (which I sadly often do). Her dart gun

Find a good vantage point, preferably high ground, and shoot at both your teammates and enemies to either heal or damage them. You can also stick to Hunters like Imara Vex and Diago, as they are both better on the edges outside of the fray. This way, you can keep them healed while they try to take out their enemies.

A great thing about Skora is that she has very high mobility due to her Adrenal Boost. You can easily run to each teammate who needs help, especially since her passive is a self-healing ability when she is out of combat.

How to play Sprocket in Star Wars Hunters

Sprocket is the third Support Hunter, which you can unlock in the game. If you prefer a unit that can both heal and deal quite a bit of damage, then he is perfect for you.

Sprocket is the middle ground between Zaina and Skora in terms of gameplay. He isn't as tied to his teammates as Zaina is, but he lacks Skora's high mobility (due to her self-healing). His healing droid will heal him, but it stays in one place while it does. This ability is good in modes where teammates group together and can be easily healed.

Offense is sometimes the best defense, and that is the case with Sprocket's Ult. He can summon a turret that will target enemies in its sight. If you are getting outnumbered, drop the turret and then run away to find help.
