Statement: I was under the impression that if you're subscribed, you get HK-51 for all new characters. I've seen some say that HK makes leveling easy. So they have him while leveling.
As said above you select character perks in your legacy panel and there you can unlock him, there will be 2 boxes, one is for unlocking him on a republic character and the other for a imperial character.
You need to be on the character you want to unlock him on and it will cost 1 million credits OR 350 cartel coins.
Sadly there isn't a option to unlock him on all character, you have to unlock him on each one paying full price on each character.

To unlock HK-51 on a low level character, it is a 2 step process
1. Unlock him via the mission chain on a level 50 character.
2. Purchase him via credits or cartel coins on the Legacy Character Perks page.
Note: it is a Legacy perk, if you start a new legacy on a different server, then you will have to get the new character to level 50 and unlock HK-51 via the mission chain.

As a subscriber I can tell you it is NOT automatic that you get him on all new characters.

Is he worth buying for a low level characters? Hell yea. You will need to get some level appropriate gear for him since he comes with lvl 50 stuff (untill you are 50, it is "broken" on him) a couple thousand at the GTN will work, but a decent blaster/sniper rifle and a couple other items, and frankly he is overpowered until around level 30. At which point things start balancing out, but he is still useful through to level 50.

I don't know why you would want to. He's cool and all, but has no dialogue in conversations so you're missing out on those from your other companions and their affection gains. If they really put the effort in and gave him special dialogue for your missions (mainly class ones) + possible to gain affection with your choices rather than just through gifts, I would use him.

I'm a completionist and want the availability really, even if he rarely was ever used. Thanks guys.

I'm gonna necro this thread:

Start a new smuggler and deck him out in the Czerka Security outfit, and apply the Czerka droid customization to HK as early as possible, and then run around as an ex-Czerka crew, or a pro-Czerka duo with whatever interesting story can come from that.

That's what I'm going to do.

hmmm - newer player to the game, but thought I might ask/post here before trying to submit a ticket.

I did the mission line (enjoyed it!), and unlocked it on my Shadow. The gear HK came with was below level, but I had acquired other essentially 'naked' companions during the 12x exp grab. I stripped out all the 50 blue mods, armoring, and enhancements from both his equipped gear and the bag of gear that showed up in my inventory, which is similar as to when you acquire Treek. (And for Treek, an extra bag of gear has shown up each time I have gotten Treek).

Yesterday, I went ahead and picked another HK up, vial the Cartel Coin legacy unlock, on a 35 alt. He showed up in my companions list instantly, and had his 1st convo when I got to my ship. However, the extra bag of gear - which I planned on stripping for all the blues when I hit 50, for myself and/or for Treek - is nowhere to be seen - not in inventory, not in mailbox.

Anyone have any insight? Should have I waited until 50 to purchase? Do the legacy/cash HK unlocks NOT get the extra bag of gear? Is it only a 1-time deal per account? Is it only awarded when you do the actual quests?

I have a stable of 6 other characters, and they well all get him - but that bag o goodies I do have a use for!

So summon whatever other companion needs an affection boost before you start the convo. Then switch back to HK after. His affection doesn't matter, unless you're sending him on crew skill missions.

Remember:
Affection boosts your companion's crew skill results, and only crew skills.
Presence boosts your companion's combat results (HP, damage, and healing), and only combat.

Not to mention it DOES gain affection from conversation choices on Makeb (why are we referring to droids as "he?"). HK-51 is the best DPS companion in the game, so it's quite sensible to want him early on a tank or healer toon.

Treek does, too. And is the best healing companion in the game, for your DPS toons.
