How do you classify a team better than the other one? Well, since all characters in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes tend to come with unique active and passive abilities that trigger while fighting the opposite team, the best team would be the one where the abilities of every single character synergize with another one. This, in turn, gives benefit to the complete team as a character may provide shield, buff self or an ally nearby or even apply a debuff to an enemy.

Here are our top 10 best teams in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes.

Rebel Scum

The best Rebel Scum team, according to us, consists of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, C3PO, Chewbacca, and Veteran Chewbacca. A solid team from the start, strongest when they counter-attack with the great leadership of Luke Skywalker. This team is one of the more fun teams to play in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes, as you must be familiar with most of the faces.

Luke’s “A New Hope” ability allows the Jedi to give its allies a 50% tenacity, giving them an advantage for two turns whenever they resist a detrimental effect. Moreover, Luke himself has increased critical chance from the start of a battle. His “Draw a Bead ability gives him a 10% extra critical chance that stacks until the end of the round.

Han Solo is another best addition to the Rebel Scum team. Like Luke, he also stacks critical hits and always shoots first. He grants the team a critical chance with the “Never Tell Me The Odds” ability and gives them an evasion-up status effect for two turns. C3P0 android is not an attacker per se, but the robot is an excellent support character in the Rebel Scum team. Lastly, Chewbacca and Veteran Chewbacca are the perfect attackers one can ask for. Both of these characters are inclined towards attacking the foe and guarding the weakest ally in the team.  

Geonosians

Insectoids/Geonosians are an extremely offense-based team in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. Players can make the best team with the best possible combination of Geonosian Brood Alpha, Geonosian Spy, Geonosian Soldier, Sun Fac, and Poggle the Lesser. When pushed to their limits, Geonosians are said to be one of the toughest teams to face in the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes.

The most useful ability of Geonosian Brood Alpha is that when you have other Geonosian characters in the team, the former grants them increased health and protection via its “Geonosian Swarm” skill. Other than that, the leader is capable of taking the assault and defending it as well using its shield.

Geonosian Spy may appear as a simple foot soldier, but this character in the team can attack and expose enemies. Next in line, the Geonosian Soldier is another great offense addition to Geonosians Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes best teams. He can increase the critical hit chance of self and other Geonosians allies. Moreover, he calls down assists when other Geonosian allies start attacking the enemy team. Sun Fac is the tank character in the Geonosians team we have suggested. He taunts enemies for two turns and also lowers their attacks. He keeps the team alive while taking heavy punches from foes.

Sith Empire

We think Darth Revan, Lords of the sith have some pretty hard hitters, such as Darth Malak, Bastila Shan (Fallen), HK-47, and Sith Empire trooper. Combining these five characters into a team will create the best Sith Empire team in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes.

This team has a supreme record when it comes to bouncing back after taking some heavy blows. Their leader, Darth Revan, is feared among his opponents and is someone most enemies avoid. This comes off as an advantage as others use this fear and inflict as much damage as possible.

Darth Revan is the best of both worlds when it comes to leading an assault using the lightsaber and the dark Force Storm ability. Moreover, having more characters from the Sith Empire will make them immune to many negative status effects thanks to the passive ability “Lord of the Sith” of Darth Revan.

For a tank character, Darth Malak is nothing short of a surprise. He can soak in damage after using the “Gnawing Terror” ability, taunting an opponent for one turn. Moreover, he can also remove buffs from the enemy team using his “Torture” ability.

Bastila Shan (fallen) is by far the best supporter one can ask for in Sith Empire Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes best teams. She does a decent amount of damage using the lightsaber and unleashes wild lightning to deal massive damage.
Lastly, the HK-47 and Sith Empire trooper are above average attackers who support the team’s leader and tank characters. Whenever Darth Revan is the leader, HK-47 gets a lot of defense and offense buffs.

Jedi

Jedi are by far one of the best Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes teams that have overpowered characters and versatile attacker and support fighters. The ideal team should have Jedi Knight Revan as a leader, General Skywalker as an attacker, General Kenobi for the tank role, and Bastila Shan, and Grand Master Yoda as support characters.

The force is strong with Jedi Knight Revan as he controls the fight using various powerful abilities. General Skywalker is the front-line attacker in the Jedi team who protects his teammates at all costs. General Kenobi not only is a tank character but also calls buffed allies to assist while debuffing enemies at the same time. Grand Master Yoda applies buffs to allies by replicating enemy’s buffs and Bastila Shan grants all allies with leader ability quickly in the fight.

Clones

Clones are one of the most famous factions since the launch of the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. All the characters belonging to this faction have received updates from the developers from time to time, and it shows how popular this team in the game is. We think Rex, Fives, Echo, ARC Trooper, and Cody make the best Clones team in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. All of the characters specialize in aerial attacks; Rex uses the air while the others work together to cover up for him and balance the ground strategy to take down the enemy team in a matter of minutes.

Rex comes with a leader role in the game, and if the allies are clone troopers as well, they receive +20% increased health. This character not only is an excellent support Clone character but also is a decent attacker as well. Rex wields dual blasters and has a variety of ground and aerial attacks. Moreover, he also applies Tenacity Up buffs on allies for three turns.

Fives is the master of applying the status effect on the team as well as on enemies. As a tank clone character, having him on your side will increase the team’s survivability as he can taunt five times for two turns.

Echo is another great addition to Clones Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes best teams. He is the kind of character who offers various assists if teammates are from the Clones faction. Echo offers various buffs on teammates and removes enemy’s buffs as well. ARC Tropper and Cody are fearsome attackers in a Clones team. Both of the characters deal a decent amount of damage using blasters and by assisting teammates.

Nightsisters

With ominous abilities such as reviving defeated teammates and calling them for assistance, the best Nightsisters team in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes should have Mother Talzin (Leader)Asajj Ventress, Nightsister Zombie, Nightsisterspirit, and Old Daka.

Despite being one of the least popular teams in the game, it is safe to say that these underrated assassins are a force to be reckoned with. As mentioned before, their revival ability is so broken that no matter how many times you defeat a member, you’ll still be facing them, meaning you will always be fighting all five of them.

Mother Talzin, as a leader of the Nighsisters faction in the game, keeps the enemy team weak by applying plague and stopping them from dispelling debuffs. She is an excellent attacker in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes and is very useful if the teammates are from the Nightsisters faction.

Asajj Ventress is a powerful character of the Nightsisters faction who removes buffs on the enemy team and heals Nightsisters allies by 40% health. She wields dual lightsabers and is a force to reckon with. The Nightsister Zombie completes the team and is one of the many reasons the Nightsisters faction is among Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes best teams. As a tank character, she not only takes in all the damage but also applies tenacity down on hit and can be revived endlessly. Finally, Nightsisterspirit and Old Daka are the key characters that give purpose to the team and aid the teammates during the fight by providing buffs and assists.

Bounty Hunters

Bounty Hunters is another best team in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes that triumphs in fights easily if all characters are from the same faction. The best Bounty Hunters team should have The Mandalorian as a leader along with the following four characters; Jango Fett, Greef Karga, Embo, and Bossk.

Bounty Hunter Team – The Mandalorian

The Mandalorian relies heavily on dealing critical damage on the enemy team while buffing other bounty hunters. Jango Fett on the other hand removes buffs from the enemy team and deals burn damage. Greef Karga is the support character of the best Bounty Hunters team as he provides assist calls and recovery to his teammates. Embo deals increased damage at the expanse of his protection and Bossk is the tank character in the team who can regenerate his health quickly. 

Old Republic

Led by Jedi Knight Revan, his comrades are Jolee Bindo, Mission Vao, Zaalbar, and Bastila Shan. This team is the perfect balance of all abilities; they can heal, attack, defend, and work together fluently as they sync better than other ones in the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. Adaptability and versatility on its peak, the Old Republic doesn’t get intimidated by anyone, nor do they back out from any fight, making them a formidable opponent for any side out there. Many players don’t dare challenge an Old Republic team, and they mostly get defeated even if they do.

Jedi Knight Revan, the leader of the Old Republic best team, is a ferocious attacker. He buffs the critical chance, speed, and offense by 5% for all Jedi and Old Republic allies. Moreover, as a master of using a lightsaber in combat, Jedi Knight Revan inflicts damage on the enemy team by using three light-saber-based attacks.

Empire

Empire is yet again another best Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes team that has the potential to destroy the enemy team in a matter of minutes. With Darth Vader as the team leader, the ideal team should have the following four characters; Death Trooper as an attacker, Emperor Palpatine, Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Director Krennic as support fighters.

Empire Team – Emperor Palpatine

Darth Vader’s attacks deal massive area-of-effect damage and he targets the debuffed targets of the enemy team. Emperor Palpatine is a semi-support and semi-attack kind of character who inflicts shock and stuns enemies easily.  Death Trooper is the fearsome attacker who stops the enemy teams from reviving their allies. Admiral Thrawn allows Empire allies special abilities quickly and Director Krennic slows the enemies down and applies various debuffs. 

Sith

This best Darkside Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes best teams should comprise Darth Vader, Darth Revan, Emperor Palpatine, Sith Trooper, and Bastila Shan. Every character in the team has brute strength and skill to take down enemies on their own. They strike fear, and their dark side aura is enough to make opponents hesitate into executing a wrong move while dueling the Sith team.

The Sith team’s immense ability to take down the enemy with less effort makes them one of the most sought-after characters in the game. However, acquiring all of the characters we mentioned is not an easy ride.
