GAS Counter

General Skywalker is one of the most popular characters in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. He is a phenomenal attacker that fits in any Jedi or Galactic Republic team. Thus, many players have him and include him in their teams, and he may be giving you a hard time.

Since General Skywalker is so good, you can use your own to counter another person’s GAS team. But if you want to play a mirror match, you can go with a Galactic Republic team, preferably with Padme Amidala. Supreme Leader Kylo Ren (SLKR), Jedi Master Kenobi, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, and Rey teams can also counter GAS, while a Commander Luke Skywalker (CLS) team could be a “soft counter.”

Indeed, beating a GAS team is a challenge. But by the end of this article, you would know what to do to win against this character.

What does GAS stand for in SWGOH?

It’s common for gamers to use unofficial acronyms to refer to things in the game. If you see players talking about GAS, know that they are talking about the character General Skywalker.

How to beat SWGOH GAS?

The best way to beat GAS is by using your own GAS. This mirror match is one of the easiest mirror matches in Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. It is just a matter of getting the right turn order and getting the right characters at the right time.

As long as you can pull that off, you should be good.

What are some of the best R7 GAS counters?

Commander Luke Skywalker is a reliable counter to an R7 GAS. 

A team with Darth Revan (DR), Han, and Chewie also works well. Just remember to stun Rex. Han’s ability to stun Rex makes it so you can win the battles consistently, even if your DR is almost always slower than Rex.

A team with Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker (JKL) lead, GAS, Hermit Yoda (HYoda), Kenobi, and GBA also works wonders.

The team consisting of Padme, General Kenobi, Anakin, Ashoka, and C3PO is also a good counter. You can replace Ahsoka with Grand Master Yoda (GMY) in this team composition. But remember that GMY needs some speed because he can’t gain Turn Meter with Padme present.

How do you counter a General Skywalker?

You can use a GAS team to counter another General Skywalker team. Here’s the updated, most effective strategy to ensure a win:

  • It would help if you used General Skywalker’s Sundering Strike over Force Grip.
  •  Target ARC Trooper’s Assign Command to Rex, then only use ARC’s Basic.
  •  Five’s Tactical Awareness requires a zeta, so ensure you got that covered.
  • Use Fives’ Cover Fire only when General Skywalker is kneeling in Cover.
  • Use Rex’s Aerial Advantage as soon as available. Follow that unless you can kill the target with your Basic. That could happen because you’ll get an assist from ARC Trooper’s turret and Echo.
  • Most importantly, follow the best kill order. That would be Fives first, then Rex, Echo, ARC Trooper, and last, General Skywalker.

How do you beat General Skywalker and clones?

You can use a team consisting of Commander Luke Skywalker, Threepio & Chewie, C-3PO, Chewbacca, and Han Solo. 

The required Zetas for this team are as follows:

  •  Commander Luke Skywalker’s “It Binds All Things,” “Learn Control,” and “Rebel Maneuvers.”
  • C-3PO’sOh My Goodness!”
  • Han Solo’s “Shoots First.”

Now, for the strategy:

  • Use Threepio & Chewie and Chewbacca’s AoEs whenever available. The exception to that is when General Skywalker is in Cover and Fives is still alive.
  • Ensure all allies have at least one stack of C-3PO’s Translation. That will let them all assist when he uses his Special Ability.
  • Use Han Solo’s “Never Tell Me The Odds” before “Deadeye.”
  • Follow this kill order: Fives, Rex, Echo, ARC Trooper, General Skywalker.

How do you beat Padme GAS?

GAS can put your team’s abilities on cooldown when he crits. That can make winning against him harder. But it’s not impossible.

A fast Padme is critical to the success of your Padme team. The other team members are Jedi Knight Anakin, Grand Master Yoda, Ahsoka, and General Kenobi.

Note that General Kenobi must also be fast. Meanwhile, Jedi Knight Anakin must have health with speed as secondary for survivability. That will ensure he stays in the battle longer and so he can provide more protection to the team.

Mod your characters like that, and you should be good to go. You will be able to beat GAS with this Padme team.

How do you beat General Skywalker Journey Guide?

General Skywalker’s Journey Guide makes many players pull their hair out. It is brutal, especially if you don’t know what to do.

Fear not; here is a guide on P4 of General Skywalker’s Journey Guide.

First of all, you don’t need high Relics to clear this event. However, that would help and will certainly make things easier.

Now, let’s get into modding the characters.

Asajj does not matter much in this match. Just mod her for survivability.

GAS Counter

Droideka is more complex. You can take him in two directions. If you have high-leveled gear, you can afford to run him super slow.

If he is the slowest character in the field, he will do more damage. But keep in mind that he should have tenacity because Echo will open up with his special ability.

If you don’t have OP gear, then it would be better to run Droideka with 220 speed. That will allow him to go first.
