How do I smuggle? The extent of Smuggling currently is avoidance of contraband scans. You earn this ability at novice and it increases throughout the Underworld tree. Master Smugglers have the highest ability to avoid scans. (covered further in Underworld section)

Bomb Droids

Smugglers have the ability to use bomb droids.

See Pets/Droid Section under Game Mechanics on Bomb Droid operation.

Is it true that Bothans make better smugglers?

It depends on what you think makes a better Smuggler.

Bothans get an additional 10% discount off faction perks. Please be aware that the discount takes effect after the actual purchase. So you must still meet the cost to purchase a faction perk, but when you actually purchase it, you will notice that you don't spend the full amount.

What's a 'Bubble Tank' and can I craft it?

What's a 'Gaming Table' and can I craft it?

A Gaming table is a piece of furniture reselmbing the holo-chess table as seen used in ANH on the Falcon; however, despite what it resembles, it doesn't actually do anything other than sit there and look nice.

How do I Evade Contraband Scans? (Smuggling)

Thunderheart- Novice Smugglers with “underworld” abilities will have a 15% chance to evade contraband searches plus an additional 15% for each skill box and Master Smugglers add another 20% for a total of 95%. Players in both the wilderness and cantinas may avoid shakedown searches if grouped with smugglers for the same bonuses. In order to receive the smuggler bonus from being grouped with the player the smuggler must be within range (35m).

Chance to evade Contraband and Faction scans

Novice Smuggler : 15%
Underworld I  : 15%
Underworld II  : 15%
Underworld III  : 15%
Underworld IV  : 15%
Master Smuggler : 20%

What is 'Contraband'?

Contraband is: Rebel Faction Equipment, Spice, Sliced weapons and armor. Player items are not confiscated. “Crackdowns” occur in the wilderness, “Shakedowns” look for covert rebels and occur in Planetary Cantinas (not player Cantinas)

Can I Evade Faction scans?

Yes, you receive the same protection from Faction scans as you do for contraband scans (dependent on your character's ability).

What are 'Faction scans'?

Ever since the GCW meta game was introduced faction players are now always in one of three states, Special Forces (PvP enabled), Combatant (PvE enabled), or On Leave (to all intents and purposes neutral). Players that are On Leave can be scanned by NPC forces of opposing factions and if discovered will have their status changed to that of Combatant and attacked.
