Enfy’s Nest (only) counters
Although he plays alone, he is one of the hardest characters to beat in SWGOH, the strategy we have to use is to make basic attacks. These attacks must be carried out until it is the hell’s nest’s turn. In this case, we can attack again with a high damage intensity attack.
