Kylo’s Rage: X-Wing 2.0 Ship Build

Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren will use his knowledge of the Dark Side and his rage to take on the Aces of the Resistance. His power could be unmatched in the right hands.

Kylo Ren

Kylo Ren is blasting off at initiative 5 in X-Wing 2.0. He has a tough TIE Silencer and his pilot ability is defensively oriented to prevent the Resistance from ganging up on him unopposed. After Kylo defends, he may spend 1 Force charge to assign the I’ll Show You the Dark Side condition card to the attacker.  His Autothrusters also allows him to perform a red boost or barrel roll after performing an action, giving him much flexibility in his maneuvers. I'll show you the dark side

I’ll Show You the Dark Side allows you to select a key Pilot damage card and assign it to the I’ll Show You the Dark Side condition card, and whenever the assigned ship takes a critical damage, that ship suffers the Pilot card that you picked. This is a great way to hinder the opponent’s offense by setting up a psychological trap that will kick in once that ship takes a crit. Brutal! Supernatural Reflexes

Since Kylo is a powerful Force user, Supernatural Reflexes will go a long way into helping his TIE Silencer be a tricky ship to pin down. Before Kylo activates, he may spend 1 Force charge to perform a barrel roll or boost action. This combined with his Autothrusters ability will make him an arc dodger extraordinaire.

Advanced Optics

To further boost Kylo Ren’s offense, his TIE Silencer can be equipped with Advanced Optics. This tech upgrade allows Kylo to spend 1 focus token during an attack to change 1 blank result to a hit result. This can help punch that damage through shields, hoping to get the Dark  Side crit that you carefully chose for your victim!
