Guide on Beating CT-5555 (Fives) in DS 4-A Hard Mode
UPDATE: A recent patch made this battle much more manageable. This Final Encounter versus CT-5555 “Fives” in Dark Side hard mode 4-A is probably one of the more difficult battles before Level 50 in Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. Fives can one shot kill your characters so you’ll need to neutralize him as much as possible. There’s no way to debuff and heal through this fight. Although Fives is only level 36, it is recommended to have a party of 3+ Stars, fully geared, and level 40+.
The key is to bring with you 2 characters with the ability to Stun a target. In the video below, I brought Old Daka and Count Dooku. Old Daka’s basic ability has a 30% chance to Stun and Dooku’s Special ability has a 25% chance to stun. Type “Stun” in the search field on our Abilities page to see who you might be able to use. You’ll want to first focus on the Jedi Consular and then the other lesser enemies before going after Fives fully. However, you’ll want your stunners to target Fives during the rotation in the hopes for a stun. If you’re lucky enough to proc a few Stuns, Fives should go down before he wipes out your party. You can see this in action below.
