Here are the Game Update notes for 9/20/2017.
BB-8 ROLLS ONTO THE CANTINA!
A skittish but loyal astromech, BB-8 shines as a stellar support for any squad. He is especially potent in Resistance and Droid squads. BB-8’s ability Covert Data Transfer introduces a new buff, Secret Intel, that grants bonus Potency and spreads to allies that use a special ability.
This new addition to the Holotable may be small, but rounds out Support in a new and exciting way. Particularly with the first special ability (Covert Data Transfer) that does not require a cooldown. For more information on his abilities and kit, please be sure to check out the Character Strategy post <<HERE>>. BB-8 can be obtained through the upcoming Legendary event, Pieces and Plans detailed below!
PIECES AND PLANS LEGENDARY EVENT
