When you're in the basement area going to get the Mountain, don't forget to do the Kings' Armoury bonus mission. It's easy to miss as you have to click on cabinets on the walls.

Message from Ambassador Averdon after revealing the truth:

I must thank you again for safeguarding the Republic's interests on Nar Shaddaa from the Kintan Kings gang. I requested additional security forces to the Nikto Sector and am confident we will establish a peaceful base of operations there.

Regarding your discovery of Bareesh's criminal past, the Republic has decided to limit its interactions with him until we are more confident he can be trusted. Nar Shaddaa is dangerous enough without "friends" like him. We will see how sincere Bareesh truly is about aiding the Republic. In the meantime, we will be more vigilant about our alliances.

If you decide to keep Bareesh's secret he will eventually send the following HoloNet message with 577 credits attached:

From: Bareesh Fenn'ak Torill
Subject: A pleasure working with you

Warmest regards! I trust you are finding Nar Shaddaa a profitable place for your endeavors. My alliance with your representative Ambassador Averdon has flourished now that those Kintan Kings gangsters are so much recycled agricultural nutrient paste.

I deeply appreciate your discretion regarding my past endeavors. What's done is done, and I look forward to a golden age of cooperation between the Hutts and the Republic. In the end, you are far better business partners than the Empire could ever be.

May your cup never run dry, nor your credits voucher go unfilled.

For a Gunslinger, Sweeping Gunfire for AoE damage took out the four brothers and Aimed Shot plus Corso finished the Mountain. Much easier than I recall this scene for other classes in the past.

Upon fighting your way to face The Mountain you'll find him alone & green - you need to interact with him to start a Cut-Scene.

During the cut-scene he is joined by 4 others, making 5 in total to combat when the cut-scene ends.

Fortunately 'The Mountain' is a 'Strong' 3350 hit point melee mob & the other 4 are normal ranged.

I let my companion (Elara Dorne in this case) 'tank' The Mountain whilst I dispatched the 4 normal, ranged mobs. Then The Mountain is much easier on his own.

If you do die, at least you'll have reduced the numbers for when you resurrect.

In spite of them saying they've become immune to the Force, they're not. Took normal damage and knockbacks just like any other mobs. And like was said above, easy to solo.
