SWTOR Bounty Hunter Companions Guide
Welcome to my SWTOR Bounty Hunter Companions Guide, where I will tell you everything you will need to know about each companion available while playing as a Bounty Hunter class. Every class in SWTOR gets their own unique companions, who will each specialize in Healing, Ranged DPS, Melee DPS, Ranged Tanking, or Melee Tanking. If you think back to the Star Wars films, your typical Bounty Hunters would be Jango Fett and Boba Fett. Bounty Hunters usually work alone, and have neither an allegiance to the Imperials or Republic.
They tend to be on the Dark side, as they’re classed as an Imperial character, though their main focus is helping themselves by gaining wealth and fortune. Whether you choose to be a Mercenary or a Powertech in SWTOR your companion characters will be the same.
I am writing this SWTOR Bounty Hunter Companions Guide to give you all the information you need in one place. You can click on the companion’s name you want to know more about to get a full page on that particular companion and see what gifts they like.
Mako is a cute, young Cyborg who was taken under the wing of Braden. She is originally from Nar Shaddaa, though when you meet her, it will be on Hutta (the starter planet for Bounty Hunters). She will be your first companion, and if like me, you chose to be a Powertech (Tanking role) she is likely to be the only companion you’ll need as she specializes in healing. She’ll keep you alive in battle, while occasionally attacking your foes from a distance using a blaster pistol. Mako will become your companion at around level 8. She is also romance-able if you’re playing SWTOR as a male Bounty Hunter.
2V-R8 is the droid that will come with your personal spaceship when you play on the Imperial side, and aside from using him to do your crew skills, you won’t find much use for him elsewhere. He’s not really classed as a companion, though in battle he will punch weakly with his fists and heal you (very poorly I might add). While questing, however, you will complete quests that will allow you to upgrade his parts. You will get him at the end of Dromund Kaas, when you steal your ship. 2V-R8 is not romance-able, nor can you gain affection with him.
Gault is a Devaronian who used to be a notorious smuggler. He has found a paranoia-free lifestyle as a gun-for-hire now, and will join your crew at around level 27, once you have completed all you class quests on Tattooine. He specializes in being a Ranged DPS and benefits from using a Sniper Rifle. Rennow will approve of any conversation that consists of: greed, indulgence, and thinking your way through a problem, though he despises options that involve fair fights, pain, charity and rules.
Torian Cadera is a human Mandelorian Bounty Hunter, who will join your crew at around level 32 once you finish all your class quests on Taris. He is constantly trying to run from his shame of being a traitor’s son, and loves all conversations concerning challenges, honor, Mandelorians, and respect. By the time you gain Torian to your crew, you will have finished Act 1, thus unlocking your Legacy title (if you haven’t done so already). Torian Cadera is romance-able if you decide to play as a female character.
Blizz is an adorable little Jawa who you will discover at around level 35 upon completion of your story quests on Hoth. Blizz received his nickname upon kicking up a snowstorm of excitement during his first experience of “the white sands”. He likes this nickname as it reminds him of better days. He also loves adventuring, gadgets, attention, praise and friendship, but he will disapprove of people being mean to him, extreme violence, and scary things. Though he sounds too cute and small to be of any real use, but don’t judge a book by it’s cover as he is a very powerful ranged tank. He is not, however, romance-able.
Skadgeis a Houk and a Melee tank who prefers to use a Vibrosword to attack close to. You can find Skadge at the end of Belsavis once you complete your quests there. This should all be at around level 41, though it will differ depending on how long you take to complete your story here. I would suggest that Mercenaries use him over Powertechs due to his role, though he could come in handy if you change his stance. He is not a romance-able companion, regardless of your sex, but are you really that upset about that? Didn’t think so…
