Top 8 Countdown - Bounty Hunters
#4 - IG-88 (legends: IG-88B) 》IG-88 was an assassin droid from Halowan who went rogue, killing his manufacturers before becoming one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. Being the only droid on this list, IG-88 held a distinct advantage over others in his profession: a complete lack of empathy. From the moment he was created, he realised his skill and hunger to kill, wiping out numerous scientists and engineers. In canon, he merely went rogue, but in legends he was one of four IG-88 units who turned on their masters and had a masterplan to unite all droids and wipe out all organic beings in the galaxy. His legends variant used bounty hunting as an opportunity to destroy any scientists linked with IG-88A's activation, but he was still commonly seen to be the second best bounty hunter in the galaxy, second only to Boba Fett. As a droid, he had many advances sensors that allowed him to make detailed and complicated decisions in just milliseconds midway through a conflict, and these sensors also further enhanced his aim and tracking skills. He could see in all directions and rotate his body in all directions. Along with his 'natural' gifts, IG-88 also carried a large arsenal of weapons, including various rifles and cannons, as well as inbuilt weapons including flamethrowers. He was destroyed when Boba Fett realised he was being tracked by the droid, and set a trap which resulted in its destruction. 》Credit for art: R-Valle (DeviantArt)

Anyways, the battle of Umbara is my favorite arc... what’s yours?
