Scum Aces

Scum Ace builds are emerging to take down the First Order and Rebellion in X-wing 2.0. Viktor Hel is ready to make other pilots stress to keep up!

Viktor Hel scum build x-wing 2.0

Viktor Hel is blasting into the X-wing 2.0 game as an Ace for the Scum faction. At the controls of a Kihraxz Fighter, Viktor has a built-in defensive ability that will keep him in the dogfight longer than most Scum pilots. After Viktor defends, if he did not roll exactly 2 defense dice, the attacker gains 1 stress tokens. This will make other enemy ships think twice about targeting Viktor; meanwhile, he will be getting into prime placement for engagements. 

The Elusive elite trait will keep Viktor alive longer than most Scum pilots. This upgrade allows him to spend 1 energy on Elusive to reroll 1 defense die. This can help him avoid more damage and can be especially helpful if you can get a range bonus on his dice. Elusive is rechargeable whenever Viktor fully executes a red maneuver, so he can get some distance from his targets if need be.


Afterburners is the perfect upgrade to help Viktor keep his distance from his enemies. After Viktor fully executes a speed 3-5 maneuver, he may spend 1 energy to perform a boost, even if he is stressed. This can help get some extra distance to get those range bonuses that he needs for his defense dice. It can also help out in a pinch to get a nice close range attack on an unsuspecting enemy.

Stealth Device

Another fantastic way to have Viktor’s ability work whenever you need it is to equip a Stealth Device. This upgrade adds a defense die whenever you defend, as long as he hasn’t suffered damage yet.

This can go a long way into keeping your enemy stressed for targeting him and keeping Viktor alive long enough to defeat any foe he faces in X-Wing 2.0!
