Han's Shoot First, Is The Targeting Weighted?

Hey there,

The more I encounter Han Solo, the more it seems like his initial targeting for the stun isn't completely random. Now I'll state here and now that I haven't been recording and running the numbers on this.
I find that, in arena, R2 is taking that stun far more than anyone else on my squad. That part I can say confidently, and that Shoretrooper is taking it the least. Leia and Ezra seem to be taking it more often than Ackbar, but I'm not as confident on those.

What I really want to know is: is the targetting based on something, random but favouring a certain characteristic? I want to guess that he's more likely to target whoever has the highest speed, but I'd like to know if anyone else has found this or if this was already looked in to. Or just tell me I'm stupid and wrong, whatever works.

    i actually feel like in my battles too Raid Han tend to favor r2, occasionally thrawn. both for me are my fastest toons in absolute speed
  • I have R2 but I'm not sure Raid Han has ever targeted him or GK. It's nearly always CLS, Han, or Ahsoka (which is hilarious and awesome for me).
  • If I had to guess his targeting is weighted support > attackers > tanks.
  • In a resistance team he always attacks my trooper

    Yes, it could be like that. In my team, Thrawn is more often targeted, followed by DT and rarely ShT.

    I suspect there may be some criteria for targeting; not only for that, but for all other attacks by anyone as well. I wouldn't be able to tell you what those criteria are or when they are used, though.

    In my case, that should mean Ackbar would be targeted just as much, but as far as I've observed that's emphatically not the case. I'd be happy to be proven wrong though.

    Is r2 your fastest character or do those others outspeed him?
  • I'll have to start keeping track and see if you may be on to something. Hopefully a dev could comment and give us some direction. To me it would make sense if he targeted the fastest character, or went for the highest power character, etc...

    I agree. R2 and CLS get hit a lot, my 2 fastest.

    Almost always R2.

    R2 is fastest. He's also my highest power.
