HK will be about the same as the ship droid or lana for dps. Maybe a bit lower and is missing the sunder effect.

I just finished a video parsing HK and going through the 6.2 updates: Right here

Can anyone explain this line about Ensign Raina Temple? I know that when you get her back after KOTFE/KOTET she only has 1 blaster equipped, but is it just a matter of equipping her with another blaster, or has she changed in some other way?

Once I've equipped her with 2 blasters again, is she just as good as she was before? This makes it sound like there were bigger changes to the companion than just her equipment.

It looks like I over-reacted, or they fixed something. In the past I couldn't equip her second pistol so I freaked. Today I could equip it.

So I tested, she has all 2 pistol skills, so even with 1 blaster, her skills hit twice. If you equip her second blaster her normal ranged attack also hits twice. So she's 100% as normal then.

I've updated the parse section to rank almost every companion in the game for DPS. There is a little more info in the video version here as well.

If anyone cares about cosmetic blaster pistols for her
Spoiler

Of course, all cartel market weapons are MH and OH eligible so you could just use those.
If you would like to hear more of my thoughts, consider joining our guilds on Satele Shan, "Shock and Jawa" of the Republic and "Full Metal Jawa" of the Empire. Thank you for reading!

I've updated the parse section with Tank Rankings as well as added a video here. I hope you enjoy.

Yup, you just need to buy the Shroud of Memory mission from the cartel. It it 3800cc right now, but it unlocks mission on all characters. Z0-0M is really a great healer.
