The best places to hide for a GAR during a shootout or raid

Hello, in this community tutorial I will be showing you a few places you can hide during a shootout at the Grand Army’s border here on Coruscant. These places are good for popshooting, clear gunfire, better angles and more! Without further ado, let’s get started!


If you are under the rank of E4, please do not interfere with firing, there are plenty of others who will take care of it. You should stay on post and be backup, you can still kill them but stay on posts please. You’ll be the “Paladin on Post” and people will thank you.

Firing Shield


This here is one of the best places to be, when crouched down you can fit most blasters in with an exception of a shotgun and such. It offers to protect most of your hitbox, and allows you to fire smoothly as well, to use a shotgun you must stand up, that goes for any other long barreled blaster, and the super blaster. It’s a good idea to remove your helmet as it makes you less visible.

GAR Promotion Board


The promotion board allows for easy pop shooting. You cannot see through the board, so raiders will not be able to see you. The other one on the far left (of where this image was taken) works well for sniping down a KOS on the bridge.



The bridge is a great spot, most likely if there’s a ground raider, there will be others fighting, you can be a backup and support without any real risk of you getting hurt. However if there’s a raiders using a jetpack, you can more easily kill them, and you won’t get jumped by a raider with Dual Sabers.


Most of the raid breaks into the inside of the border, so here are a few more convenient places.

Also, on the pipes you can fire at them.


Great idea! I might add and give credit.
