Unique 1: Reckless Retaliation
FINAL TEXT: Geonosian Brute has +25% Offense for each active Geonosian ally and +100% counter chance.

Unique 2: Summoned
  • This unit's stats scale with the summoner's stats
  • This unit can only be summoned to the ally slot if it's available.
  • This unit can't be summoned in raids.
  • This unit can't be revived.
  • When this unit is defeated, it is not considered a defeated unit.
  • When there are no other allied combatants, this unit escapes from battle.
  • A unit can't be revived if this summoned unit exists in their slot.



  • hmmm, unique 2?
  • By scale will that mean he has the same speed as brood alpha?

    I doubt it. I think the summoned geonosian will grow in power as the brood alpha gets geared up. A gear 8 brood alpha will summon a gear 8 brute, essentially.

    In the conscription ability the brood hits then dissapears. Is that right? U summon him for one hit? @CG_SBCrumb
  • With the tanks mass assist ability. Does it cause all the bugs to assist twice because of hive mind?

    Pretty strong kit, and powerful toon

    I'm curious to see Squad Two synergy because it mixes Geo Soldier's rework kit with Dooku and Nute, and Wat whose kit is unknown, but not Geonosians

    Looking forward to running Geonosians in Grand Arena

    I wonder how many kyrotech it needs

    I hope we can get scale percentages for Brute
  • Thanks @CG_SBCrumb . Awesome kit great work
  • So when are Karina the Great and the Geonosian Zombie coming?

    The conscription animation is very cool.

    Edit: My page is loading slow and I take it back. They are ALL very good. Nice.

    Then other Geos wont get any tune-ups/reworks, besides Spy who gets a "nerf" to prevent something loopy.
    Or am I wrong?
    - I want to see old Geos rework, not only this leader ability which artificially reworks the faction. Please give me something, so I dont feel bad gearing them up for fleet, when they were meta.

    Geo's are getting tune-ups/reworks but later

    Nerf for now but the updates to Geonosians should be at the same time as Geo TB launch or before (in 2 weeks)
  • So....a marquee release?

    Sounds about right

    It would be nice to see some of this stuff spread around existing Geonosian units rather than just giving this new one all the mechanics. You could still make him a vital part without giving him single target dispel, mass dispel, mass cleanse, mass assists, mass healing, mass health equalisation, passive assists and flat geonosian buffs.

    Where’s the money in that?
  • Honestly looks extremely powerful. The Brute has 100% counter chance, thus unless he's stunned or dazed or has buff immunity, he will constantly be taunting.
    I AM the High Ground
  • Taunt won’t really matter too much. every hit they take they equalize health

    Probably not cause he's needed for geoDSTB.

    We can always hope😁
  • I like it, the more separatists the merrier. I’m curious to see what other new original characters you can come up with to help factions that need it?
