Unfortunately, due to the latest updates, he’s become a bit of a pushover. I can literally tank him blindfolded (I actually tried, if there’s one thing SWTOR does well are audio cues).

That’s probably why BioWare is going to provide an updated version “very soon”, named HK-51. This time he won’t be a relentless (until the next update) enemy, but a valuable companion for our characters.

To tease us with his upcoming implementation, BioWare released a new cinematic trailer, that you can’t see below. At the moment details are scarce, besides the fact that acquiring the new companion won’t be the easiest of tasks.
