1. Introduction



Well, here you are.  My guide.  Hope you enjoy it!  This game is similar to

the Battlefield games, except this is Star Wars, which in my opinion makes it

better.  This gives you diversity of units, each with special abilities, and

maps which each have effective strategies.  This guide was made mostly by me,

but now, a good deal of it has been made by the readers.  My Thanks section

is growing very long!  If you have any suggestions, questions, or comments,

please see the Contact section.

				     

===============================================================================



2. Basic Gameplay and Controls



Here you will find the basic objectives and controls of the game.



Basic Gameplay:



The game's point in battle is to reduce your enemy's reinforcement count to 0.

You can see the enemy's reinforcements at the top of the screen.  There are

two bars and numbers under them.  The green bar and number is you, and the red

bar and number is your enemy.  When the green bar goes all the way down and the

green number (that starts at either 200 or 250) is 0, you lose, and it will say

"Defeat" on the screen.  If the red bar and reinforcement number is all the way

down, you see "Victory" across the screen.  A commander will keep you updated

verbally on your status, like saying "Our reinforcements are taking casualties"

or "Victory is imminent!" and other phrases.  The second and more difficult way

of winning is holding all the command posts for about 20 seconds.



Ok, let's clear up what reinforcements are and stuff.  This is not stated in

the game or any booklet or strategy guide, but visualize this: there is a star-

ship overhead (which there is) and it has 200 men on it, and there are 200 men

on the battlefield.  The number of reinforcements represent the number on the

star-ship.  If one dies on the battlefield, one has to come down from the ship

to a command post, and that means one less is on the ship.  If there are no

people on the ship for one side and there are on the other side, then victory

is assured for the team that still has reinforcements.  Let's also say that

there are groups on the ship that are each assigned to a command post.  If that

command post is taken, they can't spawn, and die slowly.  That's not really how

it is in the game, but gives you a good perspective on how reinforcements work.

So, in summary, to win the easiest way is to capture command posts.  Your

fellow soldiers will do this, but you have the power to lead attacks, and you

are a whole lot smarter than your computer friends (I hope).  You can use 

battle strategy and good combat skills.  If you try to win just by killing and

not capturing command posts, then most likely you will lose, unless you are

depriving the enemy of taking main battle routes or holding them at one command

post while your allies take other ones easily.

3. Units



Each unit will help you do something different, like snipe people or blow up

vehicles.  Units rated on a 1 to 10 scale, 10 being the highest.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



3a. CIS Units:





Battle Droid



Basic Weapons: Blaster Rifle, Blaster Pistol

Secondary Weapons: Thermal Detonator, Concussion Grenade

These guys are only found on Naboo: Plains and on Naboo: Theed in Historical

Campaigns.





Super Battle Droid



Basic Weapons: Wrist Blaster, Tri Shot

Secondary Weapons: Wrist Launcher

Class: Soldier

Usefulness: 9

When to use: Anytime



These are good.  They can rapidly deplete forces with there Wrist Blaster, and

can destroy stuff with the Wrist Launcher.





Assault Droid



Basic Weapons: Missile Launcher, Blaster Pistol

Secondary Weapons: Thermal Detonators, Mines

Class: Heavy-Weapons

Usefulness: 8

Secondary Weapons: Thermal Detonators, Recon Droids

Class: Sniper

Usefulness: 8

When to use: In places where you can see long distances and to scout enemy

             territories



The Assassin droid is a sniper, so put them either a long distance away from

enemies or on a highly elevated spot.  Use the recon droids to quickly move

into enemy territories.





Droideka



Basic Weapons: Repeating Blasters

Secondary Weapons: Personal Shield

Class: None

Usefulness: 9

When to use: When you have to kill A LOT of soldiers



These units are feared by enemies and loved by allies.  They can destroy dozens

damage.





Clone Sharpshooter



Basic Weapons: Sniper Rifle, Blaster Pistol

Secondary Weapons: EMP Grenade, Recon Droid

Class: Sniper

out quicker.  And they have shotguns.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



3d. Rebel Units:





Rebel Soldier



Basic Weapons: Blaster Rifle, Blaster Pistol

Secondary Weapons: Thermal Detonators, Concussion Grenade

Class: Soldier

Usefulness: 8

When to use: To deplete enemies



Rebel soldiers are, again, soldiers.  They have no armor, but have more will

than any other soldier class.





Rebel Vanguard



Basic Weapons: Missle Launcher, Blaster Pistol

Secondary Weapons: Thermal Detonator, Mine

Class: Heavy-Weapons

the game, if they are females (I'm not sure).





Wookie Smuggler



Basic Weapons: Bowcaster, Grenade Launcher

Secondary Weapons: Time Bomb

Class: None

Usefulness: 8

When to use: To sneak past groups of enemies



These are the only playable Wookies in the game.  They can take more damage

than any other unit.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



3e. NPC's (Non-player characters)



There are a few units that you can't play as.  They will appear yellow on the

map.  They only appear in historical campaigns (except Tusken Raiders and the

Sarlaac).





3ea. Gungans



Weapon: Boomers

Classes: One (no name)

Toughness: 7

Map: Naboo: Plains

Alliance: Republic



You will want to watch out for their boomers.  They are kind of like grenades

that burst into electricity when they throw them.  In groups, they destroy the

AATs easily.





3eb. Royal Palace Guards



Weapon: Blaster Rifle, missile launcher, fusion cutter, etc.

Classes: Three: Soldiers, pilots, heavy-weapons

Toughness: 8

Map: Naboo: Theed

Alliance: Republic



These guys are about normal fighting skills, they aren't anything special.





3ec. Wookies



Weapon: Bowcasters, missile launchers, fusioncutters

Classes: Soldiers, heavy weapons, pilots

Toughness: 8

Map: Kashyyyk: Islands, Kashyyyk, Docks

Alliance: Rebels/Republic



You are probably going to say, "You can play as these!" but you can't.  The

Wookie Smugglers are a little bit different from the regular Wookies.





3ed. Geonosians



Weapon: Sonic Blaster

Classes: One (no name)

Toughness: 7

Map: Geonosis: Spire

Alliance: CIS



These ones have very weak weapons.  The sonic blaster barely does any damage.

They are not to be feared.  They can move fast, so try to shoot them on the

ground.





3ee. Tusken Raiders



Weapon: Blaster Rifle, Sniper Rifle

Classes: Two, Soldiers and Snipers

Toughness: 8.5

Map: Tatooine: Dune Sea

Alliance: None



These are tough.  Do not underestimate them.  They will strike both sides, so

basically there are three enemies on the Dune Sea.  You do not need to kill all

Tusken Raiders to win, though.





3ef. Sarlaac



Weapon: Tentacles

Classes: One (only one appears)

Toughness: Unbeatable

Map: Tatooine: Dune Sea

Alliance: None



The Sarlaac is an invulnerable doom thing, that will destroy everything that

comes near it.  Stay away from it.  It is unbeatable and a problem.





3eg. Jawas



Weapon: Fusioncutter

Classes: One: Repairers

Toughness: Not warriors

Map: Tatooine: Mos Eisley

Alliance: Both



Jawas go around constructing turrets and repairing vehicles.  Don't kill them

unless they help the enemy.  Every kill of one of these counts as a minus.





3eh. Ewoks



Weapon: Spears and rocks

Classes: One (no name)

Toughness: 6

Map: Endor: Bunker

Alliance: Rebels



These guys are hard to see, so don't be a stormtrooper and walk into one as he

stabs you.





3ei. Jedi



Weapon: Lightsaber

Classes: Count Dooku, Mace Windu, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker

Toughness: 10

Map: Count Dooku: Kashyyk Islands, Mace Windu: Geonosis Spire, Darth Vader:

     Tatooine Mos Eisley, Luke Skywalker: Hoth Echo Base

Alliance: Count Dooku: CIS, Mace Windu: Republic, Darth Vader: Empire, Luke

          Skywalker: Rebels



Steer clear of these guys.  They will deflect your bullets, and kill you with

one slash of their lightsaber.  



Killing Strategy: Draw them toward the edge of a drop that will kill you, shoot 

a missile right next to the Jedi, and he will fly up, and plunge into the pit, 

killing him.  He will respawn.  Best levels to kill on: Bespin: Platforms, Rhen 

Var: Citadel, Kamino: Tipoca City 



Second Killing Strategy: Run over with a speeder bike (or push him around with

a vehicle).



Third Killing Strategy: Make them chase you, then turn around and run back-

wards.  Then shoot at his feet.



Fourth Killing Strategy: Use grenades, and throw them at the feet of the Jedi,

and down they go!  Much like the first one, just use grenades.



Fifth Killing Strategy: Land a starfighter on him.



Sixth Killing Strategy: Step on him with an AT-AT (this one is kind of hard).



Seventh Killing Strategy: (Only for Tatooine: Dune Sea)  In a vehicle, push him

into the Sarlaac pit or make him chase you to the Sarlaac.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Still having problems with the units, or don't know when to use one?  Go to

Tutorials on the main menu, and there will be intros to all the unit classes,

vehicles, and the ones you get at the start of Historical Campaigns, and the

one you get at the start of Galactic Conquest.

4. Maps



Here we are, the main walkthrough.  Scale: Easy, Average, Moderate, Hard.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4a. Clone Wars





4aa. Naboo: Plains



Default Player: CIS

Difficulty: Easy

Command Posts: The Redoubt, The Command, The Center, The Pillars, The Heads 

Key Command Post: Center

Recommended Unit: CIS: Any

                  Republic: Any

                  Rebels: Any

                  Empire: Any



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

This level's historical campaign appearance is simple.  The Gungans will throw

their boomers at you.  This can be challenging, because it's like dozens of

EMP grenades everywhere, but are easy to kill and have no guns except for their

turrets and your AATs will lay waist to them.  Spawn at the command post with

the vehicles.  If you have the option, take the starfighters and demolish the

enemy vehicles.  If not, grab a speeder/STAP or if you want a tank or walker 

and head to the Center.  Bad name.  Be creative, LucasArts!  Take that command 

post, and then you have to drive back the enemy so that command post isn't

under attack, though it probably will throughout the course of the battle.  If

one of your command posts fall, take it during your spare time.  If you are in

historical campaign, your next job is to get the shield down.  Just take down

one fambaa (or however they're spelled) and the shield will go down and your

legion of troops will attack that, leading to the Gungand defeat.  Your ally

tanks will shoot the shield if it's up just like in the movie (except they 

won't realize that they're not doing anything) until the shield is down.  Some-

times they will go in, but usually it's you and your ground troops.  If you

are on the ground, it's hard to last long inside the shields, due to the 

boomers and turrets.  If you're in a tank it's also hard to last, though you

will live considerably longer.  Now, if your not in historical campaigns, your

going to want to launch an attack on their vehicle spawning command post,

though it's usually very will guarded with vehicles and a lot of troops and

turrets.  If you capture one of the lesser command posts as the Republic, a

huge group of Gungans will spawn at once.  I really don't like the Gungans,

because they all sound EXACTLY like Jar-Jar (I have nothing against Jar-Jar,

but a dozen Jar-Jars is enough to drive you INSANE).  They also think they are

going to die, which is mostly true, but hearing about it OVER AND OVER is quite

annoying.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4ab. Naboo: Theed



Default Player: CIS

Difficulty: Easy

Command Posts: The Office, The Palace, The Guard, The Embassy, The Rotunda, The

               Plaza

Key Command Post: Palace/Rotunda

Recommended Unit: CIS: Super Battle Droid/Battle Droid

                  Republic: Clone Trooper

                  Rebels: Rebel Soldier

                  Empire: Stormtrooper



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

If you have the Palace to start out with, spawn as a heavy-weapons unit and

place a mine at each entrance.  If you have the Rotunda, put a mine on each

bridge.  Get in a tank (if there are any left) and go to the place with a path

to the side command posts and one to the Palace and another to the Rotunda,

although that one is blocked off by pillars and then stairs, making it

impossible to drive a vechicle through there (unless they were a scout vehicle,

which you don't get here.  There you should find reasonable competition between

the many, many soldiers and the tanks.  The Palace is usually under battle, so

if you don't have it, take it with your tank, and if you do have, DO NOT let

it fall into enemy hands.  You have enough allies and enough turrets to drive

back the foes.  It's also mildly difficult, but you have some cover in case you

get killed, and since there is so much battle, the dead usually drop off health

and ammo.  A wise choice would be to capture a side command post to give you a

good staging point for an attack on the big one (Palace or Rotunda).  If you

have the Palace to begin with, you are in a slight advantage, because for some

reason the Rotunda is very easy to get if you already have one of their side

command posts, which are also easy to get if you have tank at your disposal.

The Royal Guards are your enemies if you are playing in Historical Campaigns.

They are, in my opinion, easier than clones, because of their tanks.  The

pilots (not the unit pilot; the ship's driver) in the clone tanks are not

exposed, only the main gunner.  In the Gian Speeders (also only in Historical

Campaigns) the pilot and the main gunner are vulnerable, so when the Gian

Speeder is fighting an AAT you can sneak up and shoot the two drivers,

disabling the vehicle.  Combat is always fierce on this level, so soldiers are

a wise choice.

   

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4ac. Kashyyyk: Islands



Default Player: CIS

Difficulty: Average

Command Posts: West Harbor, East Harbor, North Village, Village Center, South

               Village, Landing Zone

Key Command Post: North Village/Landing Zone

Recommended Unit: CIS: Super Battle Droid

                  Republic: Clone Trooper

                  Rebels: Rebel Soldier

                  Empire: Stormtrooper



INTRODUCTION

Kashyyyk: Islands is my least favorite of the two Kashyyyk levels.  It is

fairly simple in Historical Campaign, but the Wookies do have a lot of health.

Spawn as any unit (preferably a soldier) and get to the starfighter, not a

transport ship or bomber.  They are slow and are torn through by the star-

fighters.  This way, you can tear through the enemy's bombers or transports.

This will not work in Historical Campaigns because the Wookies do not have

vehicles of their own.  Taking the skies is not difficult unless it is on

multiplayer, because it is two on two always in the skies, and a regular dog-

fight.  On the ground, a good strategy is needed.  



ALTERNATE FACTION WALKTHROUGH

Empire/CIS: The Landing zone is not a good place for ground units to spawn, but 

gives you an excellent place far away for your ships to spawn in peace without 

battle raging around them.  This is, however, a good spawning point for snipers

, as they can shoot across the valley to the South Village.  A better Empire/

CIS spawning place would be one of the northern harbors.  The West Harbor is on 

an island of its own and a straight divides you from the Village Center, which 

is the main command post for your enemies.  Snipers can pick off enemies in the

Village Center, but be prepared to fight other snipers going for both you and

the infantry crossing the dock or fording the water below you in the valley.

As a soldier, you can try to avoid snipers and get the big advantage of the

Village Center.  Watch out for enemies around the buildings, and reinforcements

from the South and North Villages.  Droidekas are simply devastating on this

level.  Get the droidekas in the village, and the defenders will give way and

lose to you.



Republic/Rebels: This level is a lot more difficult for the forces of good.

Your ships spawn in the middle of battle.  You are also surrounded.  You can

try to risk to gather a lot of men in some ship and strike at the Landing Zone,

which allows them to have no ships and no more waves coming from the south.

With the ships you gained there, you can start destroying the ground units that

are fighting against your men at the Villages.  The Republic Gunships are esp-

ecially good at that.  The Rebels have it the hardest on this level, because

one going for the Landing Zone will have to do either alone or with one other

ally.  The Republic can use a gunship to take it and have a strike team, which

will probably win.  In the village, you have to use all your droideka-killing

skills and your keen eyes to take them down.  Droidekas are hard to see, until

their shields are up, and when that happens your most likely dead, or you have

to take cover while droids rush in on your command posts.  A Jet Trooper is

good on this level, because he can easily dispatch droidekas and can fly over

and shoot attacking droids.  If the Landing Zone is in your hands, they will

have less reinforcements, but there will be more attackers in the north, which

may weaken your defenses and might even allow the villages to fall.  You need

to keep and eye on your map to see if any enemies have snuck past you.  Try to

not bring battle here in Galactic Conquest until you've secured Rhen Var.  Even

risking orbital censors to be used here is a bad choice.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4ad. Geonosis: Spire



Default Player: Republic

Difficulty: Moderate

Command Posts: Techno Union Ships 1, 2, 3, Spire, West Bunker, East Bunker,

               Derelict, Assembly Area

Key Command Post: Derelict/Techno Union Ships

Recommended Unit: Republic: Clone Trooper or Pilot

                  CIS: Droideka

INTRODUCTION

Geonosis is a long and complicated level.  In Historical Campaign, it intro-

duces you to the Clone Army.  There is no way of giving a good walkthrough of

the level without dividing it into two parts, so that's what I'll do.



ALTERNATE FACTION WALKTHROUGH

Republic: First things first: get in a Gunship.  Load up on allies.  Gunships

are virtually indestructable on this level.  The only thing that can possibly

take them down are the Geonosian Starfighters.  Go on the west side of the

Spire and take down the Hailfire Droid and Spider Walker, and if you want get

out and take the command post.  This clears a path for your AT-TE allies.  I

advise you not to get in an AT-TE on this level.  They move slow and everyone

concentrates on killing them, so they go down fast.  Anyway, get back in your

gunship and go as high as you possibly can, so your almost eye-level with the

tip of the Spire.  Shoot down on the Techno Union Ships, using your guns and

missiles.  If you run out of missiles, go back to the Derelict and refill your

ammo.  Then head back and finish up the dirty work.  Once that's done, your

probably going to want to return to the Derelict and exit your ship.  Then

fend off the enemies from the Derelict (and there will be enemies nearby).

Once you've secured the area, proceed north to the Spire.  The Spire is easy

to get up to, because the defenses are weak there because they all attack the

Derelict and such.  Once the Spire is taken, their forces will start to crumble

at a good rate.  Hopefully by now they only have one command post, two tops,

and that one should be one of the bunkers.  Those are easy to take but hard to

keep.  They aren't necessary to win the battle, but stop the CIS's hailfire

droids and spire walkers from spawning, and gives you an excellent staging

point to attack the Spire.  Without the Spire and the Techno Union Ships, the

CIS is doomed.



CIS: The separtists have it harder on this level, because in the movie they

lose.  First things first: spawn at the Spire and hop in a Geonosian star-

fighter.  Take down both gunships (preferably before they take off) and start

attacking the Assembly Area.  With that down there won't be any more gunships,

which are one of the two big threats to the precious Techno Union Ships.  If

you see an AT-TE reach one of the bunkers, go and take it down with your star-

fighter.  The reason for this little ship your in is the doom of the AT-TE

threats.  The Assembly Area takes a long time to destroy, and unfortunately

can't be taken.  Keep your eye on the map for units advancing to your front to

the north, and if any command posts are captured go and get 'em, although there

is a possibility of losing your starfighter.  You should have a warning on the

state of the Spire, because it takes a long time to capture and hopefully you

will see it blinking before its too late.  Another good way to destroy the AT-

TEs is the Hailfire Droid, which has missiles equipped for just the purpose.

The Spider Walker can be effective too, because of the powerful beam shot out

of it.  The Derelict should be captured by you, too.  Land your starfighter

right up next to it, and go in.  Defending yourself should be simple in there,

because there is only one way attackers come in, except the tiny space they can

crouch and go through, but unless you're in multiplayer odds are this won't

happen.

4ae. Kamino: Tipoca City



Default Player: Republic

Difficulty: Moderate

Command Posts: Cloning Center, Beta 2, Beta 1, Beta 3, Alpha 1, Alpha 2, Alpha 

               3

Key Command Post: Cloning Center

Recommended Unit: Republic: Jet Trooper

		  CIS: Any (Droideka)



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

Kamino does not work on my disc.  I haven't played it since I went over to my

friends house a while ago.  Oh well.  The first few minutes is scurrying around

getting command posts for both factions.  It is easier for the CIS because they

are a lot closer to everything.  The main goal for both factions: secure the

Cloning Center.  That means defending it as the Republic and getting it as the

CIS.  It will spell doom for the Republic if it is in the CIS hands, and is

quite hard to capture back as the Republic, because of: droidekas.  I hate

droidekas.  The battle outside is mostly battles on the bridges between command

posts.  It's hard if you are the Republic and encounter droidekas, but for the

CIS its not that hard and if there are no droidekas its not that hard.  The

best thing to do as the CIS is try to get the Cloning Center and keep it, then

try to take all the command posts possible.  The Republic should take all

possible command posts and defend the Cloning Facility.  Simple.  The Jet

Trooper is good at flying from command post to command post, avoiding the tur-

moil at the bridge.  The Droideka can easily secure the bridges and allow his

allies to proceed.  Turrets should be manned by the defenders of a command post

because they are useless to attack and very helpful to defend.  In this battle

it is hard to sneak up on enemies because there are a few routes you can go

by.  This makes defenders have to watch only one or two positions with turrets

or on the ground.  The Cloning Center, though, has several bridges coming to

it, making it a little harder to defend.  But the main room only has three

hallways to watch, so that makes it easier.  Also, it is heavy so that you have

more warning about enemies trying to approach.

4af. Rhen Var: Harbor



Default Player: Republic

Difficulty: Moderate

Command Posts: Western LZ, Ice Caves, Lighthouse, Citadel, Fortress, AT-TE/AT-

               AT

Key Command Post: Lighthouse

Recommended Unit: Republic: ARC Trooper/Pilot

                  CIS: Assault Droid

		  Empire: Shock Trooper/Pilot

                  Rebels: Vanguard



ALTERNATE UNIT AND FACTION WALKTHROUGH





Republic/Empire



Soldier: The soldier's main job is to secure the area for the passing of your

walker.  The first thing that should be done is spawning at the Ice Caves.  The

Ice Caves will normally have an on going battle at the end of it, and unless

you are the Empire, avoid this.  The Empire can probably take down the enemies,

but the Republic has it harder because of those dang droidekas.  If you are

the Republic, get out of the caves and pray that there is still a MAV at the

Western LZ.  If there is, lucky you!  You can either escort the walker or ride

up to the Lighthouse.  If you survive out of the Ice Caves, go to the Light-

house.  Another but longer way is to spawn at the walker and either walk or

ride to the Lighthouse, or wait until a MAV comes and get in that.  Either way,

get to the Lighthouse.  Once you're there, do the obvious and capture it.  Now

go up on the deck that is to the right of the stairs heading to the Ice Caves,

if you are looking at the Ice Caves from the Lighthouse.  If they have con-

structed turrets there, take them down.  Then head to the stairs that lead to

the frozen lake where the walker should be on.  Take down that turret.  That

takes care of the left flank of the walker.  Now either man a turret or head

over to the Fortress.  Either way take down that turret sitting out on the

front porch.  If you are in a turret shoot down the MAVs coming in to attack

the walker.  If  you are at the Fortress, take that command post, but watch out

there are many places to hide there.  One that is taken, go up the front right

stairs if you are facing the Lighthouse.  Up those stairs is another walker

threat, a turret.  Take that down, and the walker should be turret free, except

for the Citadel's turrets which are clearly visible and in range of the walker

and can be taken down by it.  Finish up by taking the Citadel.  Take any lost

command posts.



Pilot: The pilot's job on this level is manning the vehicles (how unexpected).

the recommended thing to do is man the walker.  Simple and easy.  An AT-AT (if

properly manned) can survive the whole battle and get at least sixty kills.

It's harder in an AT-TE because of the AATs which are stronger and the fact

that the AT-TEs are weaker than the AT-AT.  Either way, that is the easier

choice.  Another choice would be to man a MAV at the Western LZ and escort the

walker.  Finally, you can go and take the Lighthouse (which is harder as a

Pilot) and construct those turrets.  You can also go around repairing vehicles

and dispensing health to the soldiers and snipers fighting the brutal war in

the large courtyard.



Heavy Weapons Unit (HWU): You're job is like normal; take down vehicles and

secure the areas with mines.  Spawn at the Western LZ, and put a mine on one

of the MAVs and a few at the entrance to the Ice Caves.  Now go and refill your

ammo and get to the the courtyard somehow.  Once you're their, you need to take

the Lighthouse, although it may be difficult.  Once you've done that, you

mine up the stairs leading to it, the exit of the courtyard in front of the

walker, or the exit of the Ice Caves.  Now sit back and blow the crap out of

the enemy MAVs.  You may die a few times because the MAVs will pick you off if

they see you, so continously relocate.



Sniper: The sniper class has a few oppurtunities.  There is the Lighthouse

oppurtunity, in which you take the Lighthouse and lay prone in front of the

stairs leading into the main courtyard.  Fire into that, and you should always

have enemies to fight.  A more difficult idea is capturing the citadel, but

it most likely wouldn't work for a few reasons: 1) snipers are not equipped for

capturing command posts, 2) that area seems to be a Jedi haven, 3) it's a heavy

command post.  But if by a miracle you can take it, you can stop a lot of enemy

vehicles from spawning and you have a sniper oppurtunity that you can either

shoot to the Fortress or to the courtyard, or pick off enemies that are behind

or under your walker.  A way to clear out the Citadel is the simplicity of the

recon droid.



Jet and Dark Trooper: The Jet Trooper here has an interesting secret (sent in 

by DarthWaffle7).  Start at the Western LZ.  Jet up on top of the entryway to 

the Ice Caves.  Then make your way through the few pathes that there are for a 

longtime (the jetpack is useless)  Eventually you'll make it to the top.  You 

can see everything from up there.  If you attempt to jump, you will slide, per-

haps down the mountain.  If you simply walk off the edge, you will fall and 

die.  If you jump off, you'll slide down, take no damage, and wind up in some 

random point on the map.  Ok, back to the main strategy.  The Jet Trooper 

should spawn at the walker.  Jet to the Lighthouse.  Use your pistol to 

dispatch normal foes and EMP launcher for droidekas and groups, and as the Dark

Trooper use your shotgun for everything.  The Lighthouse  should not be hard to 

take.  Once that's finished, jetpack over to the Fortress.  It may take a few 

tries to take the Fortress.  After that, fly over to the Citadel.  The Citadel

is normally taken in the last minute or two of the battle.  It is kind of hard

to take because it is heavy and enemies are always behind the pillars.





Rebels/CIS



Soldiers: The main rule for soldiers here: do not get massacred by the walker.

A soldier may want to man a vehicle.  If you want to do this, see the Pilot

section for details.  Your units will normally take the Lighthouse, so do not

bother with it unless it is taken by the enemy.  A load of troopers will come

out of the Ice Caves.  You may have some fun up there (droidekas especially).

The Ice Caves is not a hard command post to take.  You may die once or twice,

but if you clear out the entryway, your home free.  Once that's done, you

should first check to see if you have all your command post (the walker can

clear the way for a lot of enemies) and if not, go get 'em!  If you have them

all, proceed to the Western LZ, the daddy of all enemy command posts.  The exit

of the Caves is full of brutal warfare if you control the Ice Caves, because

that's where your allies will go.  If you manage to liberate enough enemies to

have peace, destroy the guarenteed mines in front.  There will always be mines

unless you are fairly early in the battle in doing this.  It will take a few

lives usually to capture the Western LZ, if you do it at all.  Go back and get

any lost command posts.  See the Republic/Empire strategies to capture them.



Pilots: The Pilot NEEDS to man a vehicle.  In truth, you are kind of advantaged

if you are the Rebels.  Go behind the beast and fire away, the only thing that

can hit you are the vehicle and missile launcher equipped escorts.  The easiest

thing you can do the whole time is to continously take down the walker the

whole battle, keeping the thing away from the main courtyard.  You could go to

the Western LZ and have a vehicle assault there.  It is easy, even for one

vehicle.  Just blast everything and make sure the turret is down, then head in.

The Pilot has a simple strategy, but a hard one to execute.



HWU: You know what to do already.  Get the Lighthouse and blast the crap out of

every enemy vehicle without getting hit.  Or place mines on the vehicle and

ride through enemies without getting hit.  Enough said.



Sniper: The sniper should just go to any command post and snipe.  It's your job

and you should do it.  There aren't any battle strategies you should use, just

get 'em at the Ice Caves and coming to the courtyard.  Don't get hit by the

enemy walker.



Droideka: The droideka should go to the Ice Caves and blast all crap that comes

out.  The walker can spot you easily, so watch out for that.  Do not try to

threaten the escorts of the walker.  It ain't gonna work.  The only other thing

to do is to guard a command post, but that's boring.



Wookie: Get in a vehicle and run under the AT-AT (after destroying all escorts)

and plant time bombs on the legs, then run!  Otherwise, do what a soldier does.

4ag. Kashyyyk: Docks



Default Player: Republic

Difficulty: Moderate

Command Posts: City Hall, Pier One, Pier Two, Dock One, Dock Two, Beachhead,

               Landing

Key Command Post: Landing



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

This level, Rhen Var: Citadel, and Tatooine: Dune Sea all compete for my

favorite level.  This level has sparse ground fighting, but good vehicle-to-man

or vehicle-to-turret fighting.  This will give you a great oppurtunity to

use your missile launcher and your sniper skills.  The best place to start for

the Empire/CIS is their main command post, the Beachhead.  Take a scouting

vehicle to the Landing (do not use a droideka, they will drown unless you want

to scoot all the way there.  This is a great advantage to the Republic).  Once

you are there, your enemies may have already captured it, but most likely they

haven't.  The fighting is easy there, but watch for snipers.  If you see a shot

from a sniper rifle, take cover in the logs further up on the beach.  They

don't give you the greatest cover, but they will have to suffice unless you

want to die.  Recon droids are more popular units of war here.  They are used a

lot due to the mass amounts of snipers.  To be a sniper, see the alternate

strategy.  The Republic and Rebels best bet is to either be a soldier or heavy-

weapons unit.  The heavy-weapons unit should not challenge their medium assault

vehicles head on at the beach, but should use the convienent Wookie-made plat-

forms.  Go as close to the Beachhead as you can without falling, and stand

within a short walking distance to an ammo droid.  Here you can fire away at

the MAVs.  A soldier should spawn at City Hall and go straight to the Landing,

or spawn at one of the Piers and walk down the bridges.  Anyway, go to the

Landing.  The logs that are used as sniper's cover is better used for cover

from a vehicle.  The fighting is not difficult at the Landing, but constant.

Some enemies will blend in well with the water, and will flank you from three

sides.  You could attempt to take one of the Docks, and that is not easy and

not hard.  You just have to have a good weapon for rapid dispatch.  Once there,

turn around and watch for spawning enemies and enemies coming up from the

stairs.  On this level you really have a free will, because of the various

tasks of each unit.  Every unit here has a separate task.  Soldiers is the

dirty ground fighting, pilots man vehicles (or supply soldiers with health),

HWUs take out the vehicles (or else do nothing), snipers are always having fun

;) and special units use their abilities (except droidekas.  They are disad-

vantaged here).



Alternate strategy (from Adurbin 09):

This level is also my favorite in the game for any side you chose.  Appear at 

Pier 1 or 2.  Be a sniper (note: the overall technique has nothing to do with 

sniping).  Run along the tops towards that weird hut looking thing.  Throw 

detonators down near the docks to slow the enemy.  When you get to the ammo and 

healing droids, stop by them and look at the other pier.  Now send a recon 

droid of the edge and it should land on the dock.  call an air Strike in the 

middle of the enemies and wait for them to blow.  If you want to call another 

immediately after go ahead.  As long as the ammo droid lives,  you have 

unlimited air strikes.  If you are at the point where they only have eight 

reinforcements stop and just snipe them.(note: You can shoot enemies with the 

recon droid.  this gives you a chance to get a tremendous amount of head shots 

and will lose their lives so some snipers can actually go through that level 

without dying and possibly shooting the rifle).

4b. Galactic Civil War





4ba. Tatooine: Dune Sea



Default Player: Empire

Difficulty: Easy

Command Posts: Bluff, Homestead, Tusken Camp, Cistern, Sandcrawler, Dune Sea

Key Command Post: None



SEPARATE FACTION WALKTHROUGH

Empire/Republic: Start out at the Sandcrawler, and grab a speeder.  Zoom over 

to the Homestead, under that big arch.  Then jump off the speeder at the top of 

the Homestead.  Run down into the Homestead, and stand by the health droid, and 

kill the attackers until you have captured it.  This should drive the Rebels 

from this area, and bring in some troops and a vehicle.  Then, the Rebels will 

flock in from the Bluff.  You should get in an vehicle, but be prepared for a 

ton of missiles and concussion grenades.  You might encounter a combat 

landspeeder.  Hold back the foes, and once you got that in control, jump out 

and slowly take the command post.  Then, they might have taken the Sandcrawler 

or retaken the Homestead.  You can take those back if you want, but if you have 

got the Bluff, you should be close to winning.  If there's nothing to do, or 

taking the Bluff is too hard, get in a medium assault vehicle and head up to 

the Tusken Camp.  Then, massacre the tuskens!  This is an easy way to get a lot 

of kills with no resistance; the tuskens have no grenades or missile launchers, 

only blaster and sniper rifles.  And, there is always action at the Cistern.  

For Snipers: get in a starfighter, and land on one of the stone pillar things.  

Then, snipe away!  The only danger you  might have is if enemy starfighters 

destroy yours, and your stuck.  The only way to get down is if you jump off and 

land in a vehicle.



Rebels/CIS: Ok, start out at the Bluff.  Get a medium assault vehicle and get a

copilot.  Siege the Dune Sea or Sandcrawler, but be prepared for medium assault

power.  Take them down, but it may be difficult.  The Dune Sea is VERY hard to

get, because you are surrounded by turrets and vehicles when you try to take

it, and seemingly endless troops spawn there.  The Sandcrawler is easier, but

you have no cover, so being a soldier could help here.  The enemy has a knack

for taking the Homestead, because it is extremely simple to take, read the

guide above this one.  If you are frustrated or bored, there is always the

three-way clash at the Cistern, or some starcraft to battle.  The Empire and

Republic have unit disadvantages, because the CIS has the almighty droidekas,

and the Rebel Pilots seem very tough, but on this level, you're sort of

wandering, searching for a fight.     



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4bb. Tatooine: Mos Eisely



Default Player: Empire

Difficulty: Easy

Command Posts: Market, Shops, Hangar, Cantina, Warehouse, Housing

Key Command Post: Shops/Hangar



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

Start out at either the Shops or Housing.  Then go to either the Shops or

Housing.  Jetpack units help, because you can get there faster (duh).  Once

you're there, take it.  To take the Shops, you're going to run past an inter-

section that 9 times out of 10 has soldiers coming up it.  I suggest strafing

past it, firing some shots, and leave the people following you to take care of

it.  Then run until you get to a short wall connecting two buildings, then jump

over this, then go to the next wall, where the Shops should be.  There should

be a bunch of enemies in there, but as long as you are on this side of the

wall, they can't get you (I think).  And you can't get them.  When you're

ready, jump over.  If you are the Empire, take out Pilots first, because in

this tight little area shotguns are lethal.  If you are the Republic, take out

the droidekas (if any) and then the Super Battle Droids.  Then wipe out the

rest, and stand by the health droid (if it's still alive) until you get the

command post.  To get the Housing, you're probably not want to go down to go

down the road that leads straight to them from the Shops.  There is a lot of

battle there, and a turret defending the Housing.  Go around, but not from the

Cantina past the Warehouse and Market, but the other way, past the Hangar.

Weave through the buildings, and get on top and jump from rooftop to rooftop if

you can, then get to the Housing secretly, and kill all who are near.  Then

finish up by either getting the Hangar or Warehouse (or Market).  The Hangar

is tricky, because you either need to get in through the well-guarded battle-

field of the front, or the open doorway to the back.  The open doorway has

two turrets by it, which aren't usually armed, but as the Clones, there might

be an AAT.  I suggest not going in an entrance, but spawning as a Jetpack unit,

then going up the top.  You're not going to make it up in one trip, but when

you're at the roof, just clean out the sail barge, then jetpack onto the barge,

empty out the ground troops either with you're primary weapon or a turret, then

wait till you win the battles outside the Hangar, then your allies may come

help you, and they may not.  The battle should be ending soon after that.  If

you are trying to capture the Warehouse/Markets, it would be best going for the

Warehouse.  I suggest going from rooftop to rooftop, then shooting the guards,

then falling into the Warehouse, and capturing it.  TIP:  If you have the Ware-

house as any faction, place mines at the entrances.  The entrances are narrow

(except one) and perfect for mines.  The CIS is in an extreme advantage here.

They get an AAT, and the Jawas can heal them.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4bc. Rhen Var: Citadel



Default Player: Empire

Difficulty: Average

Command Posts: Observatory, Ruins, Watch, Courtyard, Terrace, Crypt, Keep

Key Command Post: Keep/Watch



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

Citadel is a fun level for me, because no vehicular combat and some good combat

with any weapon (except, that is, missile launchers).  You only begin with one

command post, so when the level starts you have to scurry around to get the

best ones.  The ones you are going to want to get are the Keep and the Watch.

The Rebels and CIS have an advantage in getting these, because it is a lot 

shorter of a run from the Courtyard to the Keep than it is from the Observatory

to the Keep.  The Empire and the Republic will get there first if you spawn

immediately and run as soon as you spawn on the most direct route.  You don't

have to do everything perfectly, but you will approach it as soon as you see

enemies coming from the stairs in front of you.  Toss a grenade there (I've got

up to seven kills with one grenade there) and run up the stairs to the keep.

An enemy or two will come up and challenge you for the Keep, but you can beat

them.  Enemies may also come to the Keep from the Terrace (which normally is

captured by the Rebels or CIS) and the Watch (which is captured normally by the

enemy of the player).  Make sure you have the Keep in your possession, because

if captured by your enemies (they usually try to take it halfway through the

level).  The Watch is another important command post, and one that is easy to

capture and critical for the Empire and the Republic.  Three guys will spawn on

the narrow walkway at a time (if the Rebels have it).  They shouldn't be hard

to kill.  Go to the far edge of the Watch, so you can see everyone spawn.  The

turrets won't be up until someone has stable control over it, and hopefully

you'll have the stable control.  Now, the leap of faith.  If you are looking at

the Keep from the Watch, you will see and valley like thing to your left and

right.  Look down to your left at the health and ammo droids.  Jump down next

to them.  You will lose some health, depending on where you drop from.  Some

spots (mainly to the right of the Watch) will deprive you from a lot of health.

The left side won't lose you as much health.  Use the health droid to regain

your health.  From there, if you are the Empire or Republic go right through

the pillars to the Courtyard.  The Courtyard only spawns one man at a time, so

it is not hard to take.  The two entrances sometimes have enemies in them or

nearby outside.  As the Rebels/CIS, go up to the Ruins.  That command post is

a usual hunting ground for Jedi, so be on your guard.  From the valley there is

a set of stairs left of the bridge heading to the watch.  They will lead you

right to the Ruins, which is an average command post to capture.  From there

you can either snipe over to the Observatory or continue to the Observatory.

The Observatory is normally held by your enemy, no matter what faction you are.

There you will find the highest intensity battle of the level.  There are 

grenades flying everywhere, people storming down the stairs and what not.  It

is easier to defend this command post than to capture it, because capturing it

requires being able to see all the scattered units outside and inside of the 

huge room that houses the command post itself.  The Crypt switches sides more

than any other command posts.  At the beginning of the level it usually goes to

the Republic/Empire, because they only have a short walk from the Observatory

to the Crypt.  It switches sides so much is because the Terrace, and extremely

well-guarded command post which belongs to the Rebels/CIS for most of the

battle, is about the same distance to it as the Observatory to the Crypt.  The

hallways allow for easy fighting and sneaking up on your enemies.  Once in the

Crypt you should duck behind the big stone thing in the middle next to the

command post.  Enemies are sometimes hard to find, but don't often spawn there.

Most of the units on this level dress in white, so they are harder to kill out-

side in the snow than inside the blue Crypt.  The Terrace is the hardest

command post to capture and the easiest to defend.  Turrets line the stairs

good.  The easiest way to get it is from the Crypt.  A direct assault from the

Courtyard is not a wise idea, because of the overload of snipers and turrets.

If you do manage to capture it, then it is normally late in the level, and it

should end soon.  



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4bd. Yavin 4: Arena



Default Player: Empire

Difficulty: Moderate

Command Posts: Altar, East Box, West Box, Gate, Arena

Key Command Post: Arena



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

This level may seem hard at first, but once you know what your doing, it's not

that tricky.  Start out either as a sniper or a jetpack unit.  If you are a

sniper, spawn at the East or West Box, whichever you have.  Then simply snipe

into the opposing box.  The snipers in the other box will shoot down into the

Arena, which will sometimes turn the tide of the battle in the Arena which is

nearly eternal.  If you are a jetpack unit (soldiers will work too, but take

longer) spawn at a box and head straight for the Arena.  Fight there, and

either empty out or stay out of range of the turret.  That thing is very

dangerous, as well as the snipers up there.  As soon as you have a fair grip on

the Arena, go up the slope to the enemy's box.  The troops up there will either

be leaving or snipers, except the turret.  Take them out, then hide behind the

health droid and capture the command post.  You can have cover, gain health,

and capture a command post at the same time.  How convinient.  Now, once you

take that, the enemy should be driven from the area.  Now you have to go out-

side.  I suggest going to your command post, either the Gate or Altar, and

grabbing the best availabe vehicle, then drive it around to their command post.

Normally, they should have a lot of troops left when you attack this command

post, so any ground attacks die within seconds.  If you are in a vehicle, you

will last longer.  I don't recommend going in for the command post, just have

a killing spree, until your vehicle is almost down, then throw some detonators

and RUN.  Only when their troops drop below thirty should you go for the 

command post.  Otherwise, you will die. 



Alternate Stategy (from Adurbin 09):

There is an almost perfect approach to taking the Alter,if on the Rebel side.  

At the beginning of the level, appear at the Gate and grab a landspeeder.  

Drive it over to the Alter, but DON'T attack the AT-ST's.  They WILL win.  

Drive up the stairs, and stop when you run into the main entrance.  Get out and 

run inside.  If you are a soldier you will have more of an advantage.  If you 

are doing this at the beginning of the game, 99% of the time only 2, or 3 

people appear.  If you are looking at where you entered,  they will always 

appear in the right corner.  I guarantee you take the Alter.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4be. Yavin 4: Temple



Default Player: Rebels

Difficulty: Moderate

Command Posts: Temple, Altar, Dry Pool, Forest Ruins, Viaduct, Fountain, Over-

               look

Key Command Post: Viaduct



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

The Temple.  I don't like this level very much, but I have to write about it,

because without it this wouldn't be a complete guide.  Take a speeder bike as

any faction to the Forest Ruins.  There you will find good combat throughout

the battle.  Then, take either the Viaduct or the Alter.  The Alter is the

easier of the two to take, because you can see your opponents when on top, and

it is not always well guarded.  AT-STs prowl about that area, so watch out in

defending it as the Rebels, and way-to-go Empire!  To combat them as the Rebels

use the nearby Tower Turrets.  They can take one down, but not head to head.

Head to head if they both have full health, the AT-ST will barely win.  For the

Rebels, its a little harder.  The Viaduct and the Dry Pool are almost identical

command posts; a turret by some ruins which has some health and ammo droids

under a viaduct.  They are very difficult to take, because it is a small fight-

ing area with two turrets.  The easiest way to take it is either to sneak

around the back, take out the turret gunners, and then kill the guys around it,

or if you're really good, hide behind the trees because of the turrets and then

wipe them out in cease fire, but you will lose a lot of lives normally if you

try this.  Once the Viaduct is taken, the AT-STs will stop coming into the

Rebel's main command post, the Temple.  If you control the Viaduct, Alter, and

Dry Pool, the AT-STs won't threaten the defense at the Temple.  To take the

enemy's back command post for either faction (either the Overlook or the

Temple) simply take a speeder bike and rush up there.  It's harder for the

Empire because they have to get off their speeder bike in the huge assembly

room, then run up the stairs into the room you see in A New Hope where you can

see the Death Star in comparison to Yavin 4.  This has no effect on the game,

because the Death Star is already destroyed.  For the Rebels, it's easy because

they just have a small area to go to, and it is not hard to take, unless you

encounter an AT-ST.  If one comes, find the nearest cover (although there isn't

much) and if one spawns, shoot anyone who nears it.  The Fountain is fairly

difficult to take, because when at the center it is hard to keep watch around

a 360 degree area, but easy for an approaching enemy to spot you.  You also

have a flank of enemies to deal with before you can even enter, and two

turrets.  The Fountain is usually captured in the last few seconds of the game,

if at all.



Alternate Strategy (From Adurbin 09):



If the enemy is taking over a lot of places, and you can't quite get them back, 

grab a speeder bike and drive up one the slants on the Temple SLOWLY.  If 

you're a sniper this is a perfect spot to snipe.  If you want to see out 

farther just fall one level.  This will hurt but barely.  DO NOT JUMP!  This 

could hurt you severely and possibly kill you!  You usually aren't supposed to 

get this high so the game can't know how to react when you jump.  



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4bf. Hoth: Echo Base



Default Player: Rebels

Difficulty: Hard

Command Posts: Echo Base, Control, Outpost, Generator, Bunker, Forward Camp

Key Command Post: Echo Base/Generator/Forward Camp



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

This level is hard, unless you know what you are doing.  Grab a Airspeeder and

tell people to get in.  Fly towards the towering AT-ATs, and then switch to co-

pilot.  If there is someone else in the Aispeeder, they will fly low towards

the AT-AT's legs, and that is when you aim at the leg and press R1.  If you

catch on, your rope should stick to that. Then release R1.  The pilot will

fly in circles around the AT-AT's feet until it gets destroyed.  Keep doing

this, and keep all your command posts and you are good.  If they take Echo 

Base, you have no Aispeeders, and then you have no Generator, which means you

have no victory.  If they don't have the Forward Camp, their AT-ATs can't 

spawn.  As the Empire, it is wise to get in an AT-AT, but I usually don't

because your kills will hit rock bottom and start to dig into the negatives.

This is because your dim-witted ally pilots will get under the feet of the AT-

AT and stomp, they get crushed.  You also have to worry about the airspeeders.

It is helpful if you want to destroy the shield generator, but isn't helpful

if you don't want to be considered traitor.  I suggest hopping in an AT-ST and

going to the Outpost.  Kill the defenders, and try to take the Outpost.  If it

stops being taken and you can't find anybody around, go out of the little

building to the front of it and you will find a little Rebel bugger standing

there.  Once the outpost is taken, go to the Control, and then to Echo Base,

then have fun killing all your remaining enemies.  Hoth is usually a fam-

ous level for people, because it is one of the best scenes in the movie.  It

is fun because as the Empire, you can just massacre all your enemies and

as the Rebels, you have the fun challenge of manning an airspeeder.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4bg. Bespin: Cloud City



Default Player: Rebels

Difficulty: Moderate

Command Posts: Rear Entrance, Chamber, Forward Flank, Courtyard, Walkway, Rear

               Flank

Key Command Post: Chamber



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

This battle consists of everything but vehicles.  There are massive battles

with at least twenty men on each side.  There are snipers and turrets picking

off enemies.  There are close quarter combat fights to the death.  The last

unit you want to play as on this level is the Heavy Weapons unit, because you

are going to be one bored little soldier.  There are absolutely no vehicles on

this level.  This is one of the very few (if only) level without vehicles.  The

only thing a heavy weapons unit is good for on this level is the destruction of

turrets.  The most effective stratgey that I have discovered either you die a

lot or die none.  Take a soldier and spawn at either the Forward Flank or the

Rear Flank.  Take the enemy's opposite command post, by fighting your way

through the hallways.  Watch out for grenades!  The little things that jut out

of the main hallway provide good cover.  The enemy's command post should be

taken quite easily, but when taking it, watch out for enemy's units spawning.

They come in pairs of two, so observe them and take down the harder one first.

Then, proceed to the next command post, either the walkway or the Rear

Entrance.  Both are critical to the battle, because the Rear Entrance gives you

easy access to the Carbon Freezing Chamber, which normally is taken by your

allies no matter what side you are on.  The Walkway allows you to flank your

enemy on two sides in the courtyard, which allows for a control of most of the

area.  The Carbon Freezing Chamber is necessary, and if it falls take it back,

but you don't have to take it back right away.  The Courtyard always contains a

fight with turrets and ground units, making it a full scale battle.  It is hard

to survive long at the Courtyard, so be prepared to use your best tactics.

Mines should be placed in this level, especially by the Carbon Freezing

Chamber.  Put mines in all the doorways, but do not put them on the white

ground of the hallways, but the black and orange ground of the Chamber.  They

cannot see them if they are on their, unless they are vigorously watching for

them (which you should be if you attack the Chamber).



Alternate strategy: (From Kasha_kamsue):



Instead of the main strategy which involves losing a few lives, if you are a 

talented sniper, then this will work.  Start out at whatever area is on the top 

story of the level.  Be a sniper and wait behind all the other units.  When you 

see storm troopers, droids, clones or rebels (your enemy) fire at them and try 

to get head shots (duh).  After a few minutes if you see some of your units in 

the base, capture it.  Then move on to the next command post and capture it.  

Then stay above the battle and snipe at your enemy from above. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4bh. Bespin: Platforms



Default Player: Rebels

Difficulty: Moderate

Command Posts: Dock, Fuel, Command, Extractor, Control, Landing, Depot

Key Command Post: Extractor



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

The first thing you want to do is take a soldier and head to the Extractor.

Normally you'll get there faster than the enemy, which is an advantage.  A

group of allies usually comes with you, so the enemy will CONSTANTLY BE

THROWING GRENADES AT YOU!!!  When the assaults of the Extractor cease by either

your surrender or you being angrily aggressive and ferociously killing all

enemies in sight, the battle should move onto the bridge leading towards your

enemy's most important command post, either the Control or Command.  There

battle should break out ferociously.  You have to fight there, or your troops

will be hammered back into the Extractor, and eventually be pushed back to

your main command post.  The bridges are usually full of mines and grenades,

so beware.  The little pieces of wall sticking out of the main wall provide

as cover for you.  This battle is very wierd for me.  I take the Control faster

as the clones than as any other faction.  It should be the hardest, because the

clones are naturally the toughest to play as, due to droidekas.  But as the

Rebels or Empire it takes me longer.  I don't know about the CIS, I never play

as them.  You may have some of your back command posts fall victim to aerial

attacks.  Don't worry about them.  You can retake them (if your allies don't)

when you have the Command/Control.  Once you have the Command/Control, you

will probably want to empty the turrests.  Tough.  If they see you, your dead.

The best thing to do is get close enough to them so they can't shoot you, and

then shoot them.  They can be seen in the back of the turret.  You can only

get a glimpse of them since the turrets move so fast.  But it's possible.



Alternate strategy: (From kikibigdog2):



Take a ship up to the top of the Extractor as a sniper.  Face your enemy's main 

command post.  Then, lie prone and shoot away.  They almost never find you.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



4bi. Endor: Bunker



Default Player: Rebels

Difficulty: Moderate

Shield Bunker, Barracks, Camp, East Trail, Village, Rebel Outpost

Key Command Post: Camp



MULTI-FACTION WALKTHROUGH

Spawn at either the village or the Barracks, and grab a speeder (or an AT-ST,

if you want) and head to the neutral command post.  Capture it.  If you are in

an AT-ST, either you or your enemy will have already capture it.  If you are in

an AT-ST, watch out for the Ewok traps.  When you're heading down the largest

trail, there will be logs that are suspended on trees by rope.  There will be

one on a tree and one on the tree opposite to it.  If they are tilted up, then

when the next AT-ST walks through, they will release and bust it in one hit.

You may notice them in Return of the Jedi.  There are two or three of these.

In an AT-ST, go to the farthest south command post and take it.  There will

usually be little defense there.  If you are a Rebel, you might want to go to

the Shield Generator, but it is difficult to destroy by yourself, so it's best

to destroy when the Empire is weakened and you can take a large group down 

there.  A Rebel Vanguard is a smart unit on this map, because of the vehicle

amount of the Empire.  There will usually be groups of enemies on this level,

because you cannot have widespread forces due to the lack of vision and the

trees.  Watch out for the Ewoks as the Empire.  They are hard to see and are

very embarrasing to be killed by, especially in multiplayer.  This level is very

different from this scene in the movie, because on this level there are a lot of

Rebels and not as many Ewoks.  It is still a fun level, though.  On this level, 

you will notice your kill amount is usually higher than normal.  I don't know 

why, maybe because its a small map.



===============================================================================



5. Galactic Conquest



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



5a. General Info



Galactic Conquest is where you choose a historical point in time.  Each one 

makes you play as a specific faction, but some let you choose between two of

them.  You then fight your opponent (CIS vs. Republic, Empire vs. Rebels) on

all of the planets that have two battles.  Once you beat one of the ones

originally available to you, you can play the others, most of which allow you

to choose your faction.  Then, you select a planet to attack.   All but one

of the planets will be the enemies.  Bespin is a good first attack; because you

need to take it early or else your vehicles will be smoking at the start if 

they choose Bespin as their planetary bonus.  Here is a list of the planetary

bonuses:



Bespin: Sabotage

Enemy vehicles come into play damaged.



Naboo: Bacta Tanks

Your troops are injected with Bacta Syrum, which makes your units heal overtime

(unless you are the droids, then the droids are replaced with self-healing

droids).



Kashyyyk: Reinforcements

You are given secondary reinforcements.



Rhen Var: Orbital Sensors

They can't see units on the map.



Tatooine: Jedi Hero

A Jedi hero will fight alongside you.



Yavin 4: Elite Training

Your units will be more skilled.



For the next ones, the planetary bonus becomes available once you have

completed four battles.



Endor: Death Star

Destroy a planet.  You also get to see footage of Alderaan getting destroyed!

 

Hoth: Rebellion

Overthrow a planet.  You get to see the footage of stormtroopers on Endor 

ambushed by Ewoks.



Geonosis: Blockade

Overthrow a planet.  You get to see the Trade Federation blockade Naboo from

Star Wars: Episode 1.



Kamino: Rebellion

Overthrow a planet.  You get to see the clones landing their ships on Geonosis

and clones piling out.  



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Here is a list of all the Galactic Conquests.





5b. The Birth of the Rebellion



Difficulty: Easy

Side: Rebels





5c. The Dark Side Rising



Difficulty: Easy

Side: Empire





5d. Attack of the Clones

5h. The Clone Wars



Difficulty: Hard

Side: Republic/CIS





5i. The Balance of the Force



Difficulty: Hard

Side: Republic/CIS





Each Galactic Conquest has a final planet.  After you've conquered all the

planets, you have to beat the one where your enemies main base is on.  Here is

the list of final planets if you are playing as the indicated faction.





CIS: Kamino

Republic: Geonosis

Empire: Hoth

Rebels: Endor



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



5j. Planet Order



You will chose what planets you want to attack in what order.  The Prima

Strategy Guide says you should have Kashyyyk first, but I don't agree.  Here is

the order the planets should be taken in my opinion:



1) Bespin: The sabotage really hurts your enemies and his a pain to deal with 

           if against you.

2) Rhen Var: It sucks not seeing units on the map!

3) Tatooine: The last thing you want to see at their main command post is a

             Jedi.

4) Yavin 4: It's easy fighting regular old units, not smart ones.

5) Kashyyyk: You don't want them getting extra reinforcements, do you?

6) Naboo: Though you may think the ability to heal yourself is great, its not.

          It's not a big advantage to them, because when I see them, I don't

          like wounding them, I like killing them all at once.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



And that's all I have to say about Galactic Conquest.  Stick to the same

strategies as the Historical Campaign and Instant action.



===============================================================================



6. Instant Action



This section is fairly short.  In Instant Action, you choose one of the maps

and play it as any faction.  But, if the planet has one map, it can only be

played as the two groups that fought each other there in Historical Campaign

(ex. Hoth has to be played Rebels vs. Empire, etc.)  This is a good way to

touch up on skills and prepare for Multiplayer.  You can play with both Jedi

fighting (not against each other) if you change the setting on Options.

Instant Action is also good if you start to play just for fun.  It can

familiarize you with the factions, and help you pick a favorite faction.  I use

this most because basically I play this game for fun now, not to say "I beat

the game!". 



===============================================================================



7. Vehicles



Here's your scale: Wimpy, Threat, Problem, Lethal

Speed: Sloth, Slow, Average, Fast, Very Fast

Scale: Threat

Type: Medium Assault

Crew: Pilot

Top Speed: 45 KPH

Size: Medium

Manufacturer: Haor Chall Engineering

These thing are bad because they can run over you.  Watch out for these, if 

they are coming at you.





Spider Walker



Weapons: 1 Beam Cannon, 1 Laser Cannon

Scale: Problem

Type: Assault Walkers

Top Speed: 90 KPH

Crew: Pilot

Size: Medium-Large

Scale: Problem

Type: Fighter Craft

Crew: Pilot

Top Speed: 1000 KPH

Weapons: 2 Blaster Cannons

Scale: Threat

Type: Fighter Craft

Crew: Pilot

Top Speed: 1180 KPH

Size: Small-Medium

Manufacturer: Xi Char

Movie: The Phantom Menace, Revenge of the Sith



These are basic Fighter Craft, and are faster than the X-wings and the Y-wings,

though they don't have to fight them.  But compared to the Jedi Starfighter,

these things move very, very slow.





MAF



Weapons: Rockets, 2 Beam Cannons, 1 Cannon Turret

Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot, Turret gunner

Top Speed: 820 KPH

Size: Large

Type: Medium Assault

Crew: Pilot, Main Gunner

Type: Heavy Assault Transports

Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot, Main gunner

Top Speed: 60 KPH

Size: Large

Manufacturer: Rothana Heavy Engineering and Kuat Drive Yards

Movie: Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith



If you are an enemy of these, the only possible solutions are the Geonsoian  

starfighters or a whole lot of AATs.  If you have one, you are lucky.  These 

are the secret to destroying the Techno Union Ships and victory at Rhen-Var: 

Harbor.  These are weaker than the AT-ATs, but more armed.





Jedi Starfighter



Weapons: 2 Laser Cannons, Missiles

Scale: Problem

Type: Fighter Craft

Crew: Pilot

Top Speed: It says it goes 12,000 but that must be wrong.  That's 12 times

           faster than the Geonsosian Starfighter.  I'll say its a typo and it

           goes 1200 KPH

Size: Medium

Manufacturer: Kuat Systems Engineering

              neering

Movie: None



Your probably thinking "Hey doesn't the Republic have those?" and yes they do.

Everything is EXACTLY the same, the size, the speed, the guns, only the color

is different.  It says this has better turning and better guns, but barely if

any.





AT-ST



Weapons: 2 Blaster Cannons, 2 Light Blaster Turrets

Scale: Problem

Type: Assault Walker

Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot

Top Speed: 90 KPH

Scale: Lethal

Type: Heavy Assault Transports

Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot

Top Speed: 60 KPH 

Size: Largest

Manufacturer: Kuat Drive Yards, Gen. Maximillian Veers' design

Movie: Empire Strikes Back



Watch out for these.  They are just as deadly as the AT-TEs, but with a few

weaknesses.  The AT-TEs can shoot from all directions, whereas the AT-ATs can

only shoot from the front.  And, you can rope their legs.





TIE Fighter



Weapons: 2 Laser Cannons

Scale: Problem

Type: Fighter Craft

Crew: Pilot

Top Speed: 1,200 KPH

Size: Small

Manufacturer: Sienar Fleet Systems

Movie: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, The Return of the Jedi



These are fast, and are perfect for destroying an X-Wing.





TIE Bomber



Weapons: 2 Laster Cannons, Proton Torpedoes, Proton Bombs

Scale: Problem

Type: Bomber

Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot

Top Speed: 850 KPH

Size: Medium

Scale: Problem

Type: Medium Assault

Crew: Pilot, Main Gunner

Top Speed: 227 KPH

Movie: Different version in Revenge of the Sith, normal version in A New Hope, 

       The Empire Strikes Back, and The Return of the Jedi



Ah, the infamous X-Wing.  Very useful, but the TIE Fighters are faster, but I

think X-Wings are more efficient.





Y-Wing

Scale: Problem

Type: Bomber

Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot

Top Speed: 1000 KPH

Size: Medium

Manufacturer: Koensayr

These are like TIE Bombers, but faster and with some advantages and weaknesses.

Watch out for them on both the ground and the air.  They have back guns that

are used to destroy ground units.

Scale: Problem

Type: Special Craft

Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot

Top Speed: 1100 KPH

Size: Medium

Manufacturer: Incom Coroporation 

Movie: The Empire Strikes Back



These are problems only to the AT-ATs, because they are just about the only

thing capable of taking them down. 



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



7e. All Faction Vehicles



These vehicles are made and spawned by all or most of the factions.





Speeder Bike



Weapons: 1 Laser Cannon

Scale: Threat

Scale: Problem

Type: Special Craft

Crew: Pilot, Three Gunners

Top Speed: 250 KPH

Found: Tatooine: Dune Sea

Size: Medium

Manufacturer: Ubrikkian

These are very, very useful, for just needing a ride.  But while you are

getting your ride, why not kill some enemies on the way?





Cloud Car

Scale: Threat

Type: Special Craft

Crew: Pilot, Co-pilot

Top Speed: 1500 KPH 

Found: Bespin: Platforms

Size: Small-Medium

Manufacturer: Bespin Motors

Movie: The Empire Strikes Back



These things are used for many things at Bespin, but aren't that great as star-

fighters.  Fastest vehicle in the game.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



7f. Turrets





Gun Turret



Scale: Problem

Faction: All

Map: Several



These are very common, and pilots need to construct them before use.





Geonosian Sonic Plaster



Scale: Wimpy

Faction: CIS

Map: Geonosis: Spire



These will to a little damage, but will knock you backwards.





Tower Turret



Scale: Problem

Faction: Rebels

Map: Yavin 4: Temple



These are very high up, and look a little like trees.





Anti-Infantry Laser Battery



Scale: Problem

Faction: Rebels

Map: Hoth: Echo Base



These are useful for killing ground troops at Hoth.





Anti-Vehicle Laser Cannon



Scale: Threat

Faction: Rebels

Map: Hoth: Echo Base



These are supposed to be used to destroy AT-ATs, but really do not to much to

them.





Anti-Air Turret



Scale: Lethal

Faction: All

Map: Bespin: Platforms



These are deadly to aircraft and to ground units.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------



7g. Creatures



Creatures are only used for transportation, and will be killed in one or two 

hits.  You also cannot attack with them.  They count as vehicles, so killing

them is a simple way to get the tank buster award.





Kaadu



Faction: Gungans/Republic/Rebels

Map: Naboo: Plains



These are just big animals.  Nothing much.  You can't attack from one.  They

are just fast.  They are weak, too.





Tauntaun



Faction: Rebels

Map: Hoth: Echo Base

 

These are like Kaadu, but will flee if there is enough combat.



===============================================================================



8. Weapons

9. Multiplayer



9a. Splitscreen



Splitscreen mode.  Both harder and easier.  You don't have a full view of the

screen, so that is harder.  But, two human characters will trample the enemy.

Splitscreen is basically a normal game, but with a big line down the middle,

and two screens.  Everything is the same, except that Galactic Conquest doesn't

have all of the options it had.  Splitscreen can ready you up for the real

multiplayer, and can be fun if you are fighting someone else, especially in

aircraft.  Well, there's not much to say about splitscreen.  There's no chat,

because, duh, you're sitting right next to the person.



9b. Online

11. FAQ





1) Can you play as a Jedi?

No.  I wish you could, but no.  They are NPCs, which stands for Non-Player

Character.  In Battlefront II you can, but that's not out yet.





2) Are there any unlockable units?

No.  I'm 99% sure that you can't.  You might consider a Super Battle Droid, a

Dark Trooper, a droideka, and a Jet Trooper to be unlockable, because they

can't be played in every Historical Campaign.





3) How do you construct a turret using a pilot and a fusioncutter?

I don't think I was specific enough, which is my fault.  Go by an area with a

metal platform with an image of a wrench, and use the fusioncutter as a

secondary weapon near the area, and a gun turret will soon appear.





4) Are you able to save in the middle of a battle?

Unfortunately, no.



5) Can Jedi phase through droideka shields?

With one stroke they will take it down, with the next they will destroy the

droideka.



6) How do you play splitscreen?  I have two controllers!

The controllers have to be made for the PS2.  They cannot be compatible with

PS1.  Also, you need two profiles.



7) Why do I see pictures of Jabba the Hut?

For PC, there is a downloadable level called Tatooine: Jabba's Palace.  You

can't get it for PS2 or Xbox (dang).



8) On Splitscreen Mode, I can only played a few Galactic Conquests.  Why?

For some reason, they made so only the easier Galactic Conquests can be played.



9) How do you destroy an AT-AT with a soldier, if no vehicles are available?

Basically, you can't.  The concussions are useless (unless there are fifty guys

throwing them at once) so, get in a vehicle!  Or play as a heavy-weapons unit.





You may notice you asked these questions.  They aren't all "frequently asked",

I just take the best ones and post them.

 

===============================================================================



12. Strategies



NOTE: These are not placed in order of importance!  They are in the order

either I thought of them, or they were mentioned to me.





1) Take the center command post. Then you can launch attacks from the command

posts around it easily.



2) Always, always, always use the Airspeeders to destroy AT-ATs when they are

available.



3) Never tangle with a Jedi.  You will almost never win.



4) Diving to the side is a good way to escape grenades.  To do that, strafe and

jump at the same time.



5) Listen to your ally's commands.  If they tell you to follow, follow.  And

most importantly, if they say "Grenade!  Grenade!" or "Get down" something like 

that, get out of there!



6) If you start losing, capture the key command posts.



7) If you want to destroy a lot of troops, don't rely on your blaster pistol.

Use a unit with an automatic (soldier).



8) Use the Prima Strategy guide.  I get tons of information from it.



9) Know what units do and and what to use in a certain situation.  For example,

use a pilot if you are on Rhen Var: Harbor because there are a lot of turrets

that need to be build and a lot of vehicles to be repaired.



10) Know your enemies weaknesses.  Dark Troopers have poor ranged abilities.

Snipers are useless in close combat.



11) Don't ever stand still when you are out in the opne.  You may think you are 

safe, but you never know when a sniper is aimed at you.



12) Use the mini-map.  You can tell what command posts need you and where the

battles occur.



13) Use Instant Action to improve your skills.



14) Use vehicles to your benefit.  Don't walk across the map when a speeder is

available.  Don't go plunging into a huge battle when an AT-ST is available.



15) Watch the skies.  Especially when you are the Empire and Y-Wings are zoom-

ing over your head.



16) Survey the area you're about to attack from a distace.  Make sure there are

no enemies in turrets or anything.



17) Use the terrain to your advantage.  If there is tall grass, lay prone and

crawl.  If there are stacks of logs, crouch by them to provide cover.



18) If you are defending a command post, use the droids around you, such as the

health and ammo droids.



19) Watch out for mines.  Especially in Bespin: Cloud city in the Chamber.  The

orange lights make mines nearly invisible.  Mines can be destroyed.



20) When in a ground vehicle, kill the units with heavy weapons first.



21) Get the command posts where the vehicles are first, so you don't have to

worry about taking tanks out when you are in the heart of the battle.



22) You are the difference in the battle.  9 times out of 10 the battle will be

lost without you.  You have to be in the frontlines.



23) If you are in a vehicle, try to have a co-pilot, a main gunner, etc., so

you are not alone.  Then you can double weapons.



24) Know what you are about to fight if you are doing a sneak attack.  Observe

a little, use a recon droid.  If you are a heavy-weapons unit, don't go

plunging into battle against soldiers.



25) Make sure that there are no snipers in the area before you attack.  The

best thing is to take a recon droid and survey the area.



26) To take out droidekas, use a Jet Trooper's EMP Launcher and fire one or two

shots to take the shield down, then another to kill it.



27) If you are in a speeder bike and you see an enemy Jedi, that is the only

time to purposely mess with him.  Run him down!



28) Watch out for anti-aircraft turrets, even when you are on the ground.  They

are lethal to aircraft (hence the name) and can kill anyone who tries to come

up and take it down on the ground.



29) If you plan to be in an aircraft for a long time, be a Pilot.  If you get

hit, you can hover over your own territory, automatically repairing (or in

Platforms, you can go under the platforms, where you are guarenteed to be safe) 



30) If you are losing, don't do a "suicidal charge of sheer rage".  You may

deplete a few forces, but it will be impacted heavier with expert battle

techniques or vehicle assaults will impact their reinforcements more.



31) If you see a group of enemy units bunched together (and you are in an

aircraft), land on them.  If you see a Jedi from an aircraft, land on him! 



32) As a Jet Trooper, you can fly up to mountaintops and building tops where

you can easily assault droids.



33) If you have a Jedi on the team, stay with him for protection, or order him

to follow you for elite assaults.



34) If you are in aircraft and are looking down at masses of enemies, go in for

an attack run, but be sure to pull up.  This is another way to destroy medium-

assault vehicles easily.



35) If in a medium assault vehicle, go in front of an army to escort them, if 

possible.



36) Always check your map to make sure that there isn't a huge battle that

needs your help or a command post you didn't know got taken.



37) Kill the most dangerous units first.  Take down soldiers first, and snipers

last (if in close combat).



38) Don't underestimate the distance of a fall.  Don't jump down anything

higher than a normal house-roof in Mos Eisely.



39) Never underestimate the power of aircraft, especially bombers, if you are

on the ground.



40) Know the armament of your enemy.  Don't pick a nose-to-nose fight with a

Rebel Pilot or a Darktrooper.  Don't try to snipe the sniper as a soldier.



41) Missile launchers can be used for enemy dispatch very effectively (if you

know what you're doing).



42) (This is one of my favorites)  As a HWU, place mines on MAVs or SVs and

just get in.  If you go through a group of enemies, the mines will detonate

and kill the enemies nearby.



43) Though droidekas are hard to beat, they are also hard to play as, unless

you have a lot of experience with them.  Travel in groups of two as droidekas

for best results.



44) Move a lot to avoid snipers.



45) Always use the best weapon available for each situation that you have.  For

example, don't shoot five clustered enemies with a blaster pistol if a grenade

is available.



===============================================================================



13. Battlefront 2 Preview



(From information received from Maddogonfire93)



In Battlefront 2, you can finally play as a Jedi!  All those questions about

playing as a Jedi, and come September you can play as one.  They will have a

time limit on them, though.  Also, you can only use them once.  The better

combos you do, the more time you get. 



Also, there will be battles in space, where you can board enemy ships and dis-

able them.  Sounds fun!



(My info)



Well, I just watched the trailer.  There are going to be battles on planets

like Utapau and Mustafar.  Plus the other levels will be remade.  There are

not just one Jedi per faction, because I saw Darth Maul, General Grievous, and

probably Count Dooku.  Pilots are only available on the space battles, and on

the ground battles they will be replaced by technicians.



Your decision will more heavily impact the battle.  Enemy and ally units will

be smarter, using tactics and such.  There are going to be more battles from

I, II, IV, V, and VI such as Princess Leia's blockade runner Tantive IV, and 

the interior (and exterior) of the Death Star.



The story follows the 501st Airborne Division, a group of clones (I think).

Jedi will fight Jedi (I saw Obi-wan vs. Grievous) and can use the Force.



There are screenshots on LucasArts.com on basically any gaming website (for

some reason, GameFaqs doesn't have 'em, but GameSpot does).  I think LucasArts

is in post-production now.



Traditional features will still be held, like the command posts and such.  I

think it will be excellent new features and levels layered on top of the

already great Battlefront I.



I will probably write a guide for this game, but it won't come out until the

end of 2005 or beginning of 2006.



The game comes out this September, 2005.
