Now some want to see it changed and are taking up arms, throwing the galaxy into a war. Little does anyone know the entire war is being monitored and controlled by a mysterious Sith named Darth Sidious, aka Chancellor Palpatine... (:o //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Republic For thousands of years, the Republic has been the galaxy's government. Now they must defend themselves from the Confederacy of Independent Systems (CIS). Troops: Clone Trooper Bred to be perfect soldiers, clone troopers know nothing but war. Their armor is recognized across the galaxy now. Heavy Trooper The CIS has a ton af vehicles, and trust me, they're all good vehicles! So the heavy trooper's job-blowing up vehicles-is extra important. Tip: Use the Heavy Trooper's rocket launcher to take out the shields of droidekas and then destroy them. Nothing works better! Clone Engineer The Republic has a lot of vehicles to maintain, so engineers are important. Clone Sharpshooter Unlike ordinary snipers which are taken from the most accurate soldiers, clone snipers are bred to be good marksmen. It's funny to see a clone take advantage of unsuspecting droids! Clone Commander (8 points to unlock) Clone commanders command the clone armies. They are a strong leading force, and their chaingun kicks butt! Weapon: Ammo: Description: Chaingun N/A The chain gun has a high rate of fire and lots of power, making the Clone Commander a favorite among gamers. However, it requires a second to warm up and can easily overheat, plus, it is very heavy, so the clone commander is very slow. DC-15 pistol N/A A more reliable backup weapon. Rally 1 This gives all nearaby friendly units a 50% damage reduction for 20 seconds. Recon droid 1 The recon droid is armed with a light blaster and can be Self-destructed. Tip: the chaingun works best on infantry, but isn't as good on vehicles. Jet Trooper (12 points to unlock) Just like Jango Fett, these special tropers have jetpacks that can allow them to zip around the battlefield and get to high places. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Merr-Sonn 2/7 This weapon works best on infantry, creating circut-blowing EMP launcher electrical blasts. It's kinda inneficient and I don't really like it. :P DC-17 N/A Jet troopers are more likely to get in a tough situation, so commando they get DC-17 blasters which have a higher rate of fire. blaster pistol. Grenades 4 Jet troopers get more grenades than standard troops. Tip: Jet troopers can get to command posts faster and more easily than any other Republic unit, and are well armed, so TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT! They can also hit snipers in high places. Clone Pilot (space only) Clone pilots are specially trained clones that fly starfighters, they can regenerate a ship's health while in it. Clone Marine (space only) Clone marines are just like clone troopers but are trained for boarding actions and combat inside starships. Heroes: Alaya Secura Hero rating: good Alaya has seen a lot of the galaxy, and the war. She has been part of numerous campaigns. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsabers N/A The weapon of the Jedi. Their name says what they are. Block N/A This blocks incoming shots; good and annoying! Saber throw N/A This can hit faraway enemies. Force pull N/A This brings enemies close enough for a saber slash! Tip: Alaya is fast and works good for clearing infantry. Ki-Adi-Mundi Hero rating: average Ki-Adi-Mundi is the only member of the Jedi Council that isn't a master. A lot of time he is gone on campaigns. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsaber N/A The weapon of a Jedi. Block N/A Blocks incoming shots. Saber throw N/A This can hit faraway enemies. Force pull N/A This brings enemies close enough for a saber slash! Tip: The Mygeeto map is the only one Ki-Adi-Mundi is on, however it is very long, but Ki-Adi-Mundi is fast, so he can go from one end of the map to another in a short time. Mace Windu Hero rating: above average Mace Windu is a senior member of the Jedi Council almost as respected as Yoda. He is a good fighter. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsaber N/A The weapon of a Jedi. Block N/A Blocks incoming shots. Saber throw N/A This can hit faraway enemies. Force push N/A This pushes enemies back. Tip: Windu is a lot better at hitting enemies close up. Obi-Wan-Kenobi Hero rating: average In the Clone Wars, Obi Wan became a Jedi Master and became a member of the Jedi Council. He is a respected Jedi and General. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsaber N/A The weapon of a Jedi. Block N/A This blocks incoming shots. Saber throw N/A This hits faraway enemies. Force push N/A This pushes enemies back. Tip: Obi-Wan's moves are well suited to clearing out enemies from areas. Use him to lead charges. Yoda Hero rating: below average Yoda is short, green, has big ears, is 900 years old, and talks funny. That describes most of him. He is also a senior member of the Jedi Council and very, VERY respected. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsaber N/A The weapon af a Jedi Block N/A This blocks incoming shots. Force push N/A This pushes enimies back Force pull N/A This brings enemies close enough for a saber slash! Tip: Trust me, Yoda is short and very hard to hit (hmm, maybe that's why he's such a pain in Mos Eisley: Assault). Vehicles: BARC Speeder A fast and highly manuverable speeder bike, but the cannon is fairly weak. weapon: 1 laser cannon crew: 1 pilot IFT-X (TX 130S Fighter tank) A fast and decently armed speeder that can mow down enemy infantry. weapons: 2 blaster cannons, 2 missile launcer, 1 beam cannon turret crew: 1 pilot, 1 gunner Note: the gunner is exposed to enemy fire. AT-RT (All Terrain Recon Transport) The AT-RT was one of many predecessors of the AT-ST. It is small and fast. weapons: 1 laser cannon, 1 mortar cannon crew: 1 pilot Note: the pilot is exposed to enemy fire. AT-TE (All Terrain Tactical Enforcer) The AT-TE is extremely slow, but equally well armed. It looks like an insect, crawling on 6 legs. It was the predecessor to the AT-AT. It blows through anything in the way and can spawn clones at it's location. weapons: 4 laser cannons, 2 particle cannons, 2 repeating blasters, 1 projectile cannon turret crew: 1 pilot, 1 copilot,1 gunner Note: If you have almost unlimited patience, drive this. If not, ignore it. Republic Starfighter The Republic Starfighter is the favored ship of the jedi. It is very fast, so it can be deadly in the hands of a jedi knight with force reflexes. weapons: 2 laser cannons, 1 homing rocket launcher crew: pilot ARC-170 Starfighter ARC-170 (Agressive ReConissance) starfighters are a balanced mix of firepower and speed. It was designed for a multitude of missions. It's S-Foil wings would later be featured in the X-Wing Fighter. weapons: 2 laser cannons, 1 proton torpedo launcher crew: pilot V-Wing The CIS has wealthy weapons companies manufacturing whole fleets of warships for them, so obviously a ship was needed to attack them. That's where the V- Wing comes along. It is fast for it's size and I've found it to be the easiest bomber to use. weapons: 2 laser cannons, 1 proton bomb dispenser crew: 1 pilot LAAT/I Gunship (Republic Gunship) The Republic gunship is slow, bun is very reliable. It is used as a boarding craft.It can spawn troops in the enemy hangar as long as it is there. weapons: 2 laser cannons, 1 missile launcher, 1 guided rocket launcher, 2 beam cannon turrets crew: pilot, copilot, 2 turret gunners Acclamator-Class Frigate The Acclamator was once the pride of the Republic navy. They are now used as escort frigates. weapons: auto turrets crew: N/A Venator-Class Star Destroyer. The Venators are the first in a long line of ships called Star Destroyers. They are very powerful and house the Republic's troops and spacecraft. weapons: 3 particle cannons, auto turrets crew: 3 gunners (although an unlimited amount of people can be on at any time) //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// CIS The CIS (Confederacy of Independent Systems) believes the Republic has grown corrupt and wants to stop it. They have a lot of power because of wealthy weapons companies that are producing massive amounts of starships, fighters, tanks, and battle droids for them. Troops: Super Battle Droid The Trade Federation learned a valueable lesson at the Battle of Naboo: cheap, bare bones battle droids are fine at terrorizing unarmed civillians, but are useless when the opposition are Jedi. So they redesigned the battle droid, giving it reinforced armor and designating the new droid B2. Assault Droid Although the CIS was successful with their Super Battle droid, it lacked good qualities for using rocket launchers (i.e. hands with fingers). So the cheapo CIS decided that instead of wasting credits on a new design, they could save money by equipping the old battle droid design with a rocket launcher and the programming to use it. Assasin Droid Assasin droids also utilize the original battle droid design because it is smaller than the super battle droid. Tip: the republic has more vehicles where at least 1 crew member is exposed to enemy fire than any other faction. Take advantage of that! Engineer Droid The engineer droid is programmed for basic repair. It has been programmed with technical readouts on a number of military vehicles. Magnaguard These droids are designed as bodyguards, but can do so much more... Weapon: Ammo: Description: Bulldog 6/30 This rocket launcher locks on to troops isnstead of vehicles. RLR Radiation 15 By default, the radiation grenades explode on impact but you launcher can lengthen the fuse the longer you hold down the trigger. Neuro 1 Neuro poison affects living things only. It will damage all poison nearaby enemies. Recon 1 The recon droid can gather data on enemies and self destruct. droid Tip: Need to clear an area of infantry? Use the Magnaguard. Droideka Droidekas are feared even by Jedi. Armed with twin repeating blasters and a shield, droidekas are formidable foes. It is slow in walking mode, but can move fast in wheel mode. When a droideka fires at you, get out of the way! Weapon: Ammo: Description: Repeating N/A These guns are fast and deadly. blasters Shield N/A This shield makes the Droideka a tough kill. Tip: With a Droideka, don't expect to lead the charge. But you can still be the heavy hitter. Droid Pilot (space only) Programmed to fly a variety of craft. Cheap and expendable. Droid marine (space only) Simple droids programmed to board and defend ships. Heroes: Count Dooku Hero rating: above average A former Jedi, Count Dooku built the Sepratist movement under the instruction of Darth Sidious. He is a charismatic leader and a good fighter. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsaber N/A The weapon of a Jedi Block N/A This blocks incoming shots. Force N/A A power used by only Sith, force lightning can hit multiple lightning foes. Force N/A Another Sith only power, you can target an enemy and imobilize choke them and damage them at the same time. Tip: Dooku's sith powers will drain your energy bar when you are using them. Darth Maul Hero rating: Freakin' Awesome! Maul was the first apprentice taken by Darthv Sidious. Although he died in Episode I, you can play as him again. Take advantage of him every time you get the oppurtunity to play as him. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsaber N/A Darth Maul wields a double bladed Sith Lightsaber. Block N/A This blocks incoming shots. Saber throw N/A This hits faraway enemies. Force push N/A This pushes enemies back. Tip: Never engage Maul close up! General Greivous Hero rating: average General Greivous is an alien cyborg who leads the CIS armies. He has been trained in lightsaber combat by Count Dooku. Weapon: Ammo: Description: lightsaber N/A The weapon of a Jedi Block N/A This blocks incoming shots. Rage 1 This boosts the damage done by all nearaby enemies Tip: Greivous does best in smaller areas with less places to hide or run. Jango Fett Hero rating: average Jango was hired to help the CIS. He is the galaxy's greatest bounty hunter. Although anyone who saw Attack of the Clones knows he died, you can play as him now.(but seriously, takin' on Mace Windu and expecting to win? He must have really lost his head that time, LOL) Weapon: Ammo: Description: Westar-34 16/128 This baby is custom made and has a better rate of fire and blaster power than a normal blaster. pistol Wrist 6 These rockets are essentially tha same things super battle rockets droids have. Time 3 These time bombs blow up in a few seconds. bomb Tip: Jango is almost like a supercharged special unit. His jetpack gives him great mobility and his weapons are powerful, allowing him to hit fast and hit hard. Vehicles: STAP The stap is basically a wierd looking speeder bike that the CIS uses. Weapons: 2 blasters Crew: 1 pilot Note: this is the CIS speeder bike equivalent AAT This is the CIS's main battle tank. This is a good vehicle for making big comebacks in a battle. Weapons: 2 blasters, 1 missile launcher, 1 laser cannon Crew: 1 pilot, 1 gunner Note: Thisv tank si best suited to destroying stuff rather than as a speedy getaway. It works good on infantry. Armored Tank Droid Faster than the AAT and more annoying to enemies on foot, this is the Armored Tank Droid. I recommend using it on troops instead of vehicles. Weapons: 2 shotguns, 1 grenade launcher Crew: 1 pilot Note: This tank isn't well suited for fighting vehicles and works best as an anti-infantry vehicle. Hailfire Driod The CIS's missile tank, the hailfire just says: "run away!" all over it. Weapons: 2 missile launchers, 1 chaingun Crew: 1 Pilot Note: The Hailfire works better on vehicles than infantry because of its weak lasers and strong missiles, unlike most other vehicles. Spider Walker The CIS seem to have a vehicle for everything. The Spider is useless against vehicles, but works good on clones. Weapons: 1 laser, 1 blaster crew: 1 pilot Note: This vehicle is slow, but has a good balance of weaponry. Tri-Fighter This has a pretty self-explanatory name. It's fast but weak. Good for a quick getaway.(hint hint to campaign players) Weapons: 3 chainguns, 1 missile launcher Crew: 1 pilot Droid Fighter Not as weak as the Trifighter but not as strong as a bomber-the CIS Droid Starfighter. I think it's better than the Tri-Fighter. Weapons: 2 lasers, 1 proton torpedo launcher Crew: 1 pilot CIS Strike Bomber If you're a star wars nerd, you might wonder why General Greivous's starfighter is the CIS's bomber. It's because Pandemic is lazy and Lucasarts rushed them to get this game out the Christmas season after episode 3. Weapons: 2 blasters, 1 proton bomb dispenser Crew: 1 pilot Droid Gunship Ok, where do the droids go? Anybody notice that the back on the ship looks too thin to hold guys? Just my random observation. :) Weapons: 1 beam cannon, 1 homing rocket launcher, 2 blasters Crew: 1 pilot, 1 copilot, 2 gunners, 2 passengers Note: The Droid Gunship is fairly effective on starships. Banking Clan Comms Ship This used to be the Banking Clan's communication ship. Now it's just a frigate. Weapons: auto turrets Crew: N/A CIS Battleship This is the most fun capital ship because it's the only one with a double sided hangar. I like to fly a Jedi fighter upside down through it. :D Weapons: 3 particle cannons, autoturrets Crew: 3 gunners, but infinite people can be on it. Part 2: THE GALACTIC CIVIL WAR The Republic win, but it turns out Palpaitine was an evil dude who started the war just to get himself in power. Now he's Emperor because he turned the Republic into the Empire and has ordered the clone troopers to kill all jedi. :( There is a new war between the Empire and the Rebels. This is the era or the original Star Wars movies from the 80's with the cheezy dialogue and lame special effects that your parents probably saw. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Galactic Empire The new government in town, the Empire has a strong military and rules with an iron fist. Anyone who dares to resist gets severe consequences, too bad there are many people who resist. Units Stormtrooper The next version of the clone trooper, stormtroopers are completely loyal to the Empire, if only because they're weak minded. Shock Trooper The Empire trained some of their Stormtroopers to use rocket launchers instead. Tip: Try putting mines on the side or front of speeder bikes (yes, it's possible) and driving them into enemy tanks! :D Scout Trooper Scouts are good at fighting solo and engaging enemies from far away. Imperial Engineer The Empire sure loves it's tech, which is always top of the line. That means that it needs good engineers to maintain it. Imperial Officer After the Clone Wars, instead of having the same genetic template serve as soldiers and commanders, the Empire decided to hand over the job of commanding to these British accented, short-temperd dudes. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Sonic 5/25 Basically useless. If you're stuck with it, run. blaster V-6d 5/25 Shoots a grenade farther than a person can. Mortar launcher Recon 1 This is good for getting tactical information, or blowing driod up in enemies' faces. :) Dark Trooper Basically a Stormtrooper on steroids. They are cyborgs with enhanced abilities and equipment. Think super-soldier. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Arc 5/25 It can be powerful fully at close range with lots of caster enemies, but only when fully charged. It's otherwise usless. SE-14r N/A Ok, I think you get the idea that I don't like this gun. pistol Grenades 4 Good for blowing stuff up. Imperial Pilot (space only) They get years of training...to fly ships that can barely take a few seconds of blaster fire? Impreial Marine (space only) Basically a stormtrooper in space. Heroes: Anakin Skywalker Hero rating: average Anakin was tricked into being evil (joining the Dark Side) by Emperor Palpatine. He did a few things for Palpatine before his little accident. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsaber N/A The weapon of a jedi. Block N/A Blocks attacks. Saber N/A Hit enemies with your lightsaber from range. throw Force N/A Pushes enemies away. push Tip: Anakin has a lot of basic skills of the jedi. He is esentially a copy of Luke Skywalker. Boba Fett Hero Rating: above average Boba is Jango Fett's son, but he's an exact clone of Jango (It's an easier way for Jango to carry on his family line than hooking up with a woman. :D Nice one, Jango my man!) Boba wears the same type of armor as Jango and almost all his weapons are the same. Weapon: Ammo: Description: E-3 36/144 The only weapon different from Jango. It fires 3 shots at a Blaster time. rifle Flame 60 Who doesn't love the flamethrower? This one is kinda thrower confusing because it looks just like Boba's rifle. (Stupid Lucasarts/Pandemic!) Wrist 5 Essentially the same things Super Battle droids have. rocket Detpacks 4 The same things all engineers carry. Tip: Like Jango, Jet Troopers, and Dark Troopers, Boba carrys a Jetpack. It's a lot nicer than the ones the Dark and Jet Troopers have. The Emperor Hero Rating: above average Who doesn't love playing as the big guy, the evil mastermind, the biggest baddie: The Emperor? He's the sith who masterminded the Clone Wars and the fall of the Republic and the Jedi. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsaber N/A The weapon of a Jedi. Force N/A Although it shoots out of The Emperor's fingertips instead lightning of a gun, the Force Lightning functions a lot like the Dark trooper's Arc Caster, except it drains stamina instead. Force N/A This lets you hold enemies in midair while draining their choke health! Yay! Tip: The Emperor works best in close combat with large groups of enemies. Darth Vader Hero rating: average Darth Vader is the name given to Anakin Skywalker when he became a Sith. He was burnt badly on Mustafar after a lightsaber fight with Obi-Wan. Now he must wear a protective suit wherever he goes. :( Not the kind of dude you want to make angry. Weapon: Ammo: Description: lightsaber N/A The weapon of a Jedi. Block N/A Blocks attacks. Saber N/A Hit enemies from range with a lightsaber. throw Force N/A This is Vader's "signature move". It suspends enemies choke while choking them. Tip: Darth isn't the fastest of heroes, so use him as a heavy hitter in large battles rather than small ones faraway. Vehicles 74-Z Speeder Bike If you need to get somewhere quick, use the speeder bike. It's ineffective for pretty much anything else. Weapons: 1 blaster Crew: 1 pilot. Note: The Speeder Bike functions just like the BARC speeder. IFT-T Fighter Tank The Empire supposedly "improved" the old Republic fighter tanks with better handling and weapons. In reality, it's nothing more than a reskinned Republic Fighter Tank. (Stupid Lucasarts/Pandemic, again!) Weapons: 2 blaster cannons, 1 missile launcher, 1 beam cannon. Note: This is exactly the same thing as the IFT-X Tank save for a new paint job. AT-ST (Al-Terrain Scout Transport) Basically a next-generation AT-RT, the AT-ST is more powerful. Weapons: 2 lasers, 1 heavy cannon, 1 rocket launcher Crew: 1 pilot, 1 copilot AT-AT (All-Terrain Armored Transport) The most powerful ground vehicle in the game, the AT-AT is well suited for leveling Rebel bases. weapons: 2 laser cannons, 2 heavy cannons. Crew: 1 pilot Note: Because the cockpit is so high up, you can see lots of enemies. Pick off as many infantry as you can before you reach your target. TIE Interceptor Basicallly a weaker, faster TIE. Weapons: 2 lasr cannons, 1 missile launcher Crew: 1 pilot TIE Fighter The TIE Fighter is the Empire's hilariously expendable multipurpose fighter. Weapons: 2 laser cannons, 1 proton torpedo launcher Crew: 1 pilot Imperial Shuttle Wait! This isn't the right shuttle! This is the Episode 3 one! What's it doing here? Can this game obsess over any more Episode 3 crap at all? (Stupid Lucasarts/Pandemic yet again!) Weapons: 2 heavy cannons, 1 proton torpedo launcher, 1 guided rocket launcher, 2 repeating blasters Crew: 1 pilot, 1 gunner, 3 passengers Victory II-Class Star Destroyer This ship saw lots of action during the Clone Wars and is now the Empire's frigate of choice. Weapons: autoturrets Crew: N/A Imperial Star Destroyer The next generation version of the Venator is the Empire's capital ship. Weapons: 3 heavy turrets, autoturrets Crew: 3 gunners, alhough an unlimited amount of people can be on board. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Rebel Alliance The Empire did a good job of killing anyone who opposed them, but not good enough. The Rebellion is lead by those they missed. It's members range from simple people who decided to step up, former Imperials, and people who were neutral until the Empire did something horrible to them. Troops: Rebel Soldier While they may not be nearly as trained as the Imperials, Rebel soldiers are more determined to win. Remember: nobody is a Rebel who doesn't want to be one. Rebel Vanguard The Imperials make the expensive state-of-the-art tanks, these guys blow them up. Rebel Smuggler Smugglers have good knowledge of machinery and can repair it. It just so happens the Rebels have a lot of these guys. Rebel Marksman The sniper is always valuable in any good guerilla outfit. The ability to kill an enemy before he can see or get close enough to you is extremely valuable. Bothan Spy (8 pionts to unlock) The Bothans specialize in stealth and sabotage. They've cast their lot with the Rebels. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Incinerator 10 Completely vaporizes an opponent in seconds. I can't describe in non swear words how annoying it is to be killed by an invisible Bothan Spy using one of these. Stealth N/A Allows the Spy to become invisible as long as it's energy bar allows. Regeneration: 1 Allows all nearaby allies to regenerate health for 30 seconds. Time Put it wherever you want, as long as you have 5 seconds bomb to run. Wookiee Warrior (12 points to unlock) The Wookiees were enslaved by the Empire after the Clone Wars. Unfortunately, many got free and joined the Rebels. They aren't the kind of guys you want to anger, and right now, they don't like the Empire. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Bowcaster 35/210 The Wookiee special weapon. Think cross of laser and crossbow. Grenade 5/15 Launches grenades. (duh!) launcher Grenades 4 Blows stuff up. Recon 1 Good for looking around when you don't wanna waste your droid own neck. Rebel Pilot (space only) The TIE pilots may get more training, but most Rebel pilots end up with more experience because they fly sturdier ships and live longer. Rebel Marine (space only) Trained in boarding and anti-baording techniques. Heroes: Chewbacca Hero rating: above average Chewbacca was rescued by Han Solo and has been loyal to him ever since. This has gotten him entangled with the Rebels. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Bowcaster 35/210 Chewbacca's main weapon. Guided 4 Guide this rocket like a starfighter. rocket Rage 1 Increases damage dealt by all nearaby allies. Time 3 A favorite weapon of the saboteur. bomb Tip: Chewbacca is essentially an overpowered heavy unit. Han Solo Hero rating: Average Han Solo never wanted to join the Rebels. Little did he know giving Luke Skywalker a ride would force him to do just that. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Modified N/A Han's DL-44 fires 3 shots in a row. Dl-44 pistol Fusioncutter N/A Repairs equipment. Detpack 5 Put it somewhere and explode it from a safe distance. Rally 1 Weakens the damage nearaby allies take for a short time. Tip: In Hero assault mode, Han is the only hero that can fix broken droids. Luke Skywalker Hero rating: Average Luke is the son of Anakin Skywalker and brother of Princess Leia, but he doesn't know that. He barely knows about anything. He got sucked into the war between the good and bad guys and also found out he was a Jedi. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Lightsaber N/A The weapon af a Jedi. Block N/A Blocks attacks. Saber N/A Hit enemies from range. throw Force N/A damages nearaby enemies while pushing them back. push Tip: Luke is well balanced. He is good for leading the charge. Princess Leia She is a Princess and Senator, but also a rebel leader and a fighter. Weapon: Ammo: Description: Sporting N/A This scoped pistol can shoot through multiple enemies. blaster It sacrifices rate of fire, though Grenades 3 Blows stuff up. Invulner- 1 Allows nearaby allies to take more damage. ability Tip: Leia is a good support hero, but isn't good on the front lines. Vehicles: 74-Z Speeder Bike The same speeder the Imperials use. Weapons: 1 laser cannon Crew: 1 pilot AAC-1 A pretty average tank. Weapons: 2 laser cannons, 2 particle cannons, 1 missile launcher turret Crew: 1 pilot, 1 gunner A-Wing This prototype starfighter is one of the fastest there is. Weapons: 2 1asers, 1 missile launcher Crew: 1 pilot X-Wing A very well balanced ship. Weapons: 4 lasers, 1 proton torpedo launcher Crew: 1 pilot Y-Wing It's old but sturdy, so it works for the Rebels. Weapons: 2 particle cannons, 1 proton bomb dispenser, 1 chaingun turret Crew: 1 pilot, 1 gunner AAC This is a perfect example of how lazy the people who made this game are. The Rebels don't even get their own ship, just a copy of the Republic one. Weapons: 2 laser cannons, 1 missile launcher, 1 guided rocket launcher, 2 beam turrets Crew: 1 pilot, 1 copilot, 2 gunners Corellian Corvette A small but fast battleship that is the Rebel's frigate. Weapons: Autoturrets Crew: N/A Rebel Transport Basically a freight ship with guns Weapons: Autoturrets Crew: N/A Mon Calamari Cruiser It looks kinda like a fish because it's built by fish people. But does it need to be named after a food? Weapons: Autoturrets, 3 repeatig blaster turrets. Crew: 3 gunners, but an unlimited amount of people can be on. Turrets------------------------------------------------------------------------- Gun Turret Basic turrets. In terms of added firepower, I don't think they're worth the hassle of that they make you a sitting duck for rocketmen. Sonic Turret Shoots blasts that push back enemies. Never use one, they won't help. Anti-Infantry Turret These are actually useful and can kill guys. Anti-Vehicle Turret These would be useful, if they weren't just on Hoth, where all the enemy vehicles take, like, a bajillion shots to kill. Concussion Cannon Turret Fires 2 mortarlike blasts in a row. It has a slow rate of fire, but works well, especially on vehicles. V1.1 patch---------------------------------------------------------------------- This is worth the download. It includes small updates to the game you'd never notice, plus the ability to play campaign missions on instant action, Coruscant Jedi Assault (broken, don't bother), and concept art and cut content. Mods---------------------------------------------------------------------------- There are a ton of mod maps for this game to install most of them, simply download it, and put the map in the "Addon" folder, which is inside "Star Wars Battlefront II", if you have the 1.1 patch. I'll highlight some of the better mods. Coruscant: Streets- Fight through the streets of Coruscant. Be sure to set the reinforcement points up to 500. (SBF) Hypori: Greivous Attacks- This map lets the republic play as Jedi with NPC clones versus General Greivous and droids. Star Wars Battlefront Conversion Pack-Remember all the old Battlefront maps that were cut out of Battlefront 2? This has all of them, plus a few I've never heard of. Tactical Enhanced Combat Mod This makes the game a lot more realistic. Ships have ammo, you get killed easily, and some units have been changed and made to look more realistic. Note: It's in German. The Battlefront Project While it doesn't aim for damage realism like the Tactical Enhanced mod, it features new models and better reskins of some units. Battlefront Extreme Another mod with more realism in clones. It also has new ships and characters, and has made the sides more unique. Worth a look. Hopes for Battlefront 3--------------------------------------------------------- Information is scarce, but I've heard that British developer Free Radical (the guys behind TimeSplitters and the original N64 Goldeneye 007) are going to be making Battlefront 3. It's also been said that it will be an Xbox 360 exclusive, although knowing the last 2 games, I'd expect at least PC and PS3 versions as well. Here's what I was hoping for in Battlefront 3: 1)Improved AI that is capable of actually boarding ships (It would make non- multiplayer space battles so much less one-sided). As well as AI that can make their own squads without a player. 2)Better squad system. The original Battlefront had more squad commands than the second one. 3)Improved reward system. Instead of just making your weapon better, give you a new weapon that actually looks different. Each side's reward weapons would look different but function similar. Also, a "Grenadier" medal for getting a certain amount of granade kills would be cool. Oh, and make the rocket launcher medal not impossible to get, please. 4)More asymmetrical balance between sides. For example, Clones would have more health, but Droids carry more ammo. The Rebel sniper rifle would be good when the Imperial sniper rifle wouldn't, but the Imperial rocket launcher is better than the Rebel one. 5)Improved heroes. Make the jedi characters each have unique moves, instead of most of them having the same ones over and over. Fix the camera for Yoda, and make it easier for General Greivous to wield all 4 lightsabers. Oh, and give Jango Fett 2 pistols that actually look like his, instead of 1 that looks like the Droid pistol. 6)New heroes. I'm thinking expanded universe characters like Mara Jade (She's probably the most famous character not in the movies) for the Empire. As well as Lt. Janek "Tank" Sunber of comic series Empire/Rebellion fame. (He's mentioned once when Luke complains that his friends Biggs and Tank have already signed up for the Imperial accademy.) Durge and Asajj Ventress from the Clone Wars cartoons would be for the CIS. Maybe you could even throw in some of the countless Clone Commanders mentioned in Episode 3 for the Republic, as well as Quinlan Vos from the Clone Wars comics, and Qui-Gon Gin from starwars 1. Finally, Kyle Katarn from the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight games and Wedge Antilles for the Rebellion. 7)More realism. Clones on Mygeeto should look like the Battlefront 2 Clone Commander, Utapau Clones wear gold stripes instead of 501st blue. Stormtroopers on Dagobah would be Swamp Troopers. Mygeeto Rebels and Imperials would look like they do on Hoth. The AT-AT should seat 2. Don't use General Greivous's fighter as the CIS bomber, or the starwars 3 shuttle as the Imperial shuttle, and please don't use the Republic Gunship as the Rebel Shuttle Oh, and if you can't think of a hero for a map, don't put one in! I don't want to see Jango Fett on Kassyyk or Darth Maul on Mustafar! Oh, and what about improved physics? 8)Space Heroes with their own ship. Take a moment to think of how awesome that would be! Luke would fly and improved X-Wing. Boba and Jango Fett would get Slave I. Han and Chewie would get the Mullenium Falcon. The possibilities are endless! 9)New classes for each side. I'm thinking just a medic, a pilot for ground combat, and a heavy gunner. 10)New maps. I'm thinking stuff from the expanded universe. 11)Maps from the first game and improved maps. Make the Coruscant map in the city, and give us back Rhen Var! 12)Good campaign. Battlefront 2's campaign felt cobbled up. Maybe instead of trying to do a deep story about a particular leigion, relive a bunch of famous star wars battles (including expanded universe). If the maps were fun, the objectives good, and the realism respected, it could be great. I might add more, I might not. I decided not to do a maps section (too long!) But right now I've added everything I want. Contact me at email@example.com . May the Force be with you in the game, and may God/Buddha/Allah/Whoever be with you in real life.
