Lando Calrissian was added to the game with the release of the Bespin expansion pack. Before he was in charge of Cloud City, Lando was a smuggler who loved to gamble. In fact, he was the original owner of the Millennium Falcon before he lost to Han Solo in a bet. Once he lost the Millennium Falcon he put his gambling days behind him and started a mining operation.
The Lando Calrissian hero follows closely to what he was in the movies, a gambler and using tricks to get what he wants. He is able to use decoys to fool the enemy and tricks to cause their weapons and abilities to dwindle. So while he seems to rely on luck, make no mistake that he is a formidable foe.
His special abilities are System Disruption, Power Blast, and Shocking Trap.
This ability will cause nearly every enemy in his vicinity to have their weapons overheat and their Star Cards put into cooldown mode. There are a few heroes where this is ineffective against such as Darth Vader to name one.
When he charges his power bar he is able to inflict six times more damage than normal. This increase in power can let him shoot targets from across the map with deadly consequences.
Lando is able to deploy decoy Power Ups, hero tokens, and even hero health pickups. When they get close enough the trap will go off and they will begin to get electrocuted. If they fail to break out of it, they will die.
Besides his special abilities, Lando Calrissian also has a “Fortune Trigger” hero trait that gets stronger with each kill that he gets.
