It's the story of a team of four clone soldiers who have been bred from birth for war, teamwork, and brotherhood. Outfitted with Katarn battle armor and the DC-17m combat weapon system, the commandos are at the top of their league. The game employs an easy-to-use squad command system where you, the player, control the leader of the team and give out orders to your squadmates. I will go into this in-depth later in the walkthrough. <<II - Basic Gameplay>> Here, I will be outlining what the buttons do, what everything on the screen is for, who your squadmates are, and the controls you'll need to get familiar with to effectively utilize your squad. <II.A - Basic Controls> A BUTTON - use/pick up B BUTTON - melee attack X BUTTON - reload Y BUTTON - jump WHITE BUTTON - change HUD modes BLACK BUTTON - change grenade START - pause the game BACK BUTTON - toggle mission objective on/off, toggle scores in multiplayer RIGHT TRIGGER - fire LEFT TRIGGER - throw grenade LEFT THUMBSTICK - movement RIGHT THUMBSTICK - look CLICK RIGHT THUMBSTICK - zoom/aim down the ironsights of your gun. CLICK AND HOLD LEFT THUMBSTICK - crouch D-PAD + A BUTTON - issue squad commands (see II.D for details) D-PAD UP - equip DC-17m blaster variant D-PAD RIGHT - equip DC-17m sniper variant D-PAD DOWN - equip "picked up" weapon (ACP array, elite beam weapon, Wookie bowcaster, etc.) D-PAD DOWN (DOUBLE TAP) - equip DC-15s pistol D-PAD LEFT - equip DC-17m anti-armor variant <II.B - HUD (Heads Up Display)> Star Wars Republic Commando is a first person shooter. As such, all the relevant information (ammo, health, squad status, etc.) is displayed on the screen in front of you. Here's a quick overview. Your view looks kinda' like a "T." Right at the top in the middle is where your current mission objectives will be displayed. The currently selected grenade is shown in the bottom right, along with how many you have available. The white bar running along the bottom is your shield power (depleted when shot, but regenerates). The green bars stacked on top of each other in between the two shield displays are your health meters. Green is healthy, yellow or orange is damaged, and red is incapacitated. This gets depleted when you are shot and does not regenerate. A bacta station is needed to replenish this (see II.E for details on bacta dispensers). On your currently selected weapon will be 1) an ammo count, and 2) a clip count. It should be obvious which one is which, so keep an eye on them. Between your health meters you'll see a circle with an arrow and a number in the middle. This is the objective tracker. It shows you where and how far your next objective is. Above the left shield bar is your squad status area. The three green circles indicate your squadmates, with their respective numbers above and an arrow pointing to where they are in relation to you. The circle will change depending on what they are currently doing. Example: if they are at a sniping position, the icon will be a 4-point reticle; if they are at a grenadier spot, the icon will be a grenade; if they are incapacitated, the icon will be a red cross. The color of the icon lets you know how healthy they are, using the same color system as your health gauge. The three HUD modes you can be in are normal, tactical, and low light. Tactical mode gives you floating arrows pointing in the direction of your squadmates if they aren't in your field of vision. There will also be four bars running vertically on the edge of your visor that will change to the color of the squadmate you have in your crosshairs. Normal mode is the same as tactical without the tactical color indicator. Instead, when the crosshair is put on a squadmate, their number will appear over their head. Low light is for just that; low light situations. It's a mixture of night-vision and infrared vision, culminating in something that resembles a cloudy day, allowing you to see in dark places. You will also lose the tactical color indicator present in the tactical mode. <II.C - Characters> Delta 38 The leader of Delta squad, also the player character. RC-1138 "Boss" Really only talks when orders need to be given. Same white Katarn armor as the rest of the squad, but has unique orange markings. Delta 40 Acknowledged "second-in-command" of Delta squad. Very RC-1140 "Fixer" by-the-book soldier, often heard telling the others to "cut the chatter." Insists on calling the squad by their numbers instead of their nicknames. Resident technology expert. Excels at slicing terminals and breaking codes (no in-game effect). Fixer has green markings on his armor. Delta 07 The rest of Delta squad suspect someone may have spiked RC-1207 "Sev" 07's cloning vat. He's a cold, quick, efficient killer with a thirst for battle and a dark sense of humor. "When things get hairy, he gets scary." Excels at sniping (no in-game effect). Sev has red markings on his armor. Delta 62 Delta 62 puts the fun back in "funeral." With his almost RC-1262 "Scorch" fatalistic sense of irony and his witty humor, 62 manages to put an almost friendly face on the hell that is war. The resident explosives technician, he got the name Scorch from singing off his eyebrows when a demolition charge went off early. Scorch has yellow markings on his armor. Together, these four commandos form a lethal, precise, and quick way to deal with any and all combat situations that require that extra pinache. When a stab in the back is preferred over a full-on charge, Delta Squad is called in to duty (although the Deltas would just as soon volunteer for the latter). <Secondary Characters> The "Advisor:" Your clone contact who informs you of all your missions and mission updates. Sun-Fac: Geonosian General Tarful: Wookie leader General Grievous: Trade Federation General <II.D - Squad Commands and Controls> The main feature of this game is the ability to control your squad. By understanding these few simple controls, you'll be taking out Trandoshans and droidekas in no time. The cornerstone of the squad command system is the D-PAD. Simply by pressing the A BUTTON in conjunction with a direction on the D-PAD, you can tell your squad to do one of four maneuvers. Pressing A and Up on the D-PAD tells your men to "Secure Area." This command also requires the use of the right thumbstick, as wherever you are looking when the order is given is the area they will secure. A marker will appear in the middle of the area and a luminescent halo will appear for a second, identifying the borders of the secure area. Your squad will not follow you if they are told to secure area. Pressing A and Right on the D-PAD will tell your men to "Form Up." This command tells your men to go wherever you go, but to stay behind you. This command is useful if stealth is the order of the day, or if the upcoming areas could be too dangerous to just let them run into. This command will also cancel any "secure area" command, forcing your men to follow you and abandon the secured area. Pressing A and Down on the D-PAD tells your men to "Cancel Maneuver." This command is useful when you have a few men at assignable positions and you want to recall them without manually placing the reticle over their position and hitting the A button. Giving this order releases all your men from assignable positions. They will then follow either "form up," "search and destroy," or "secure area," whichever was given last. Pressing A and Left on the D-PAD tells your men to "Search and Destroy." This command cancels a secure area command. Your men will move on in the correct direction with or without you (they'll stop if they get too far ahead), killing all in their path, takng cover when the need arises. This command has a good and bad side. Good, as you can find your way when lost (your men always know which way to go) and bad, as they may rush headlong into a situation too heavy for even Delta Squad. This, however, is the most used command, and is supremely effective when used right. Assign this command and then place yourself 2nd or 3rd back in the line as your squad advances so as to be able to evaluate the situations ahead, giving new commands as necessary, with your men leading, possibly shooting first and saving you some ammo! While your crosshair is over an enemy, hitting the A button will highlight the enemy, telling your squad to focus fire on that enemy. The enemies life bar will appear over your squad status icons, and you will also be able to see the enemy through walls, helping you keep track of it. During the walkthrough, I will refer to doing this as "targeting." <II.E - Assignable/Usable Positions> Scattered throughout the levels of Republic Commando are assignable/usable postions that are just that; assignable to your men and usable by yourself. They can be anywhere from behind a crate (telling your man to snipe) to on a door (telling your squad to place a small breaching charge on it and toss a grenade when it opens). They can be on turrets, on piles of rubble or barricades that need to be blown out of the way, or on consoles that need to be "sliced," or hacked. When the cursor is placed over the postion, the cursor will change to what your squad indicator in the bottom left will change to, and it will say in the top middle of your HUD what that kind of assignable position that is. To assign a squadmate to an assignable position, simply place the cursor over the position and press the A button. The nearest unassigned squadmate will take up the position (or the man that that has been at his spot the longest, if all are assigned) and will only abandon the spot if instructed to do so (or, in some cases, when certain events are triggered and the position becomes unable to be assigned to anymore). To cancel the maneuver, again place the cursor over he position and hit the A button. The squadmate will then follow the last squad order givem (form up, search and destroy, etc.). To use an assignable position yourself, simply get in the spot and hit the A button. Sniper spots, grenadier spots, and anti-armor spots are the only ones you cannot use yourself, because you can choose to use those weapons anywhere, as opposed to your squad who will only snipe when at a sniper spot, only use the anti-armor attachment when at an anti-armor spot, etc. Here is a list of the assignable positions you will encounter. [Breach Door] This will place one man at the door and the other two to the left of it. The center man will place an entry charge, blowing the door open. The man crouching to the left will toss a grenade in (which one is situation specific) and then all three will enter and clear the room. [Slice Console] The commando will post up at the console and proceed the "slice," or hack, the console. It could take anywhere from 10 to 60 seconds, depending on which console you encounter. This position is also on doors, usable as an alternative to breaching. Slicing a door will unlock it, but will not open it. You have to move to and open the door yourself. [Snipe] Assigning a commando to this spot will have them take cover and take out their sniper rifle attachments. They will lay down an impressive amount of accurate fire, dropping enemies left and right. This is the most commonly encountered position. [Throw Grenades] The commando will throw either ECD's or thermal detonators, depending on who you are fighting. They will throw maybe 4-5 a minute, and will announce their throw to avoid any stray commandos wandering into the blast radius. When your reticle is over the spot, a circle will appear on the floor in front of the spot, showing you where the grenades will be thrown. [Use Anti-Armor Attachment] The commando will attach his anti-armor launcher and fire at the heavy targets first, then the smaller ones. Keep clear of the blast radius, as your man will fire even if you are in the way. [Use Bacta] The commando will go up to the bacta station and repair himself. If your men are damaged enough, they will do this automatically if the area is clear. [Use Turret] The commando will man the turret assigned and fire on the enemy. There is a radius in which the turret cannot fire, so make sure no enemies sneak up on your man and hit him from behind. [Place Proximity Charge] This command, done on explosive barrels placed throughout the levels, will have the commando place a small proximity activated explosive on the barrel. When an enemy is inside the radius for long enough, the charge will go off, detonating the barrel. Very explosive. You and your men will not set off the trap by walking near it. [Place Demolition Charge] Used to destroy objectives, clear barricades, or destroy droid dispensers. They take 10 seconds to arm on all but droid dispensers, which take 20. [Disarm Landmine] There are proximity activated landmines located throughout the game. To disarm them, either assign a commando to do it or crouch-walk your way towards it. Crouch-walking is the only way to get close withough setting it off, as the trigger is based on movement. They take 5 seconds to disarm. While your man is disarming, do not go near, even if you are crouch-walking. You may be being careful, but your other two commandos may not. [Revive Commando] When one of your men becomes incapacitated, he will become an assignable position to allow your men to revive him. It takes 5 seconds to revive a commando. Your men will do this automatically if there are no enemies around. You must force them to do it otherwise, or just do it yourself. This action gives the commando back half their total life bar. If you yourself are incapacitated, you will have three options for orders to give to your men: -Maintain Current Orders- Your men will clear the area of hostiles and then revive you. -Recall and Revive- Forces the nearest commando to stop what he is doing and revive you. -Load Saved Game- Loads last checkpoint. These positions are everywhere and are usually placed there for a reason, not randomly. So if you come upon a sniper position, but there are no enemies around, assign it anyway. It's there for a reason. Enemies may not be here now, but they will be shortly. Using these assignable positions is critical to making it through the game. They present strategic defense emplacements, important objectives, or mandatory actions. Every single one present is needed, so use them if they're there. *Auto-Pull* In the options menu, you have the...option...to turn "auto-pull" on or off. When Auto-Pull is on, two things will be different. One, squad-mates will be able to be assigned to a position even if they are currently assigned to one. This is useful in the sense that you can sort of "leap-frog" your men from position to position without manually releasing them from their position. Lastly, when auto-pull is on, your men will be released from assignable positions if you get too far ahead of them. Deciding whether to have this option on or off is a matter of personal preference. I prefer to have it on so I don't have to worry about releasing my men from positions before assigning them to new ones (this can be especially frustrating if one of them needs bacta badly, but they won't obey your "heal up" order until you release them from the position). <<III. Weapons>> The Star Wars galaxy is a plethora of technology and culture. If the technology is good enough and the culture violent enough, weapons are invented. Here are the weapons you will be encountering. <III.A - DC-17m Interchangeable Combat Weapon System> The DC-17m ICWS is the standard issue weapon for special forces. It can be fitted with attachments that convert it from an ion pulse plasma blaster to an ion pulse sniper rifle to an anti-armor explosive grenade launcher. <III.A.1 - Blaster Attachment> Rapid firing ion pulse blaster. Good against all enemies in short- to medium-range. [60 round clip size, 5 clips max (300 rounds total)] <III.A.2 - Sniper Attachment> Semi-auto sniper rifle that fires charged plasma bolts. Capable of one shot approximately every two seconds. Equipped with a 10x and 20x electromag scope. Effective against enemies at medium- to long-range. [Five round clip, 4 clips max (20 rounds total)] <III.A.3 - Anti-Armor Attachment> Grenade launcher that fires an explosive charge in an arc. Detonates on impact. Effective against all types of enemies in medium- to long-range. [4 grenades max] <III.B - DC-15s Side Arm Blaster> Standard issue side arm for special forces. Powered by a self-charging dynamic energy cell which constantly recharges the battery at a slow but steady rate, essentially giving you infinite ammo. The recharge rate is slow though, so you will need to let it recharge if it is fired too fast. [Seven rounds/second before recharge is needed] <III.C - ACP Repeater Gun> Accelerated charged particle gun. Standard weapon of Trandoshan mercenary group. Cuts through shields like butter but has a hard time with armor. Rapid-fire. [40 rounds per clip, 6 clips max (240 rounds total)] <III.D - ACP Array Gun, "slaver shotgun"> Fires a spread shot of ACP bolts. Must be manually reloaded every shot. Great in close quarters, but its effectiveness decreases with range. [8 shots per gun, 24 shots total] <III.E - Ls-150 Heavy ACP Repeater > Much like a chaingun; can put massive amounts of shots downrange without reloading except every 200 shots. Takes a LONG time to reload. Carrying this weapon will slow the pace of the user. [200 shots per clip, 2 clips total (400 shots max)] <III.F - LJ-50 Concussion Rifle> Fires a concussive charge round that implodes on impact and then explodes outward. Use only at medium- to long-range. Also, if used as a melee weapon it will shock the enemy as if they had been hit with an ECD grenade. [5 shots per clip] <III.G - Geonosian Eite Beam Weapon> This arm-mounted weapon sucks fluids from the arms of the Geonosians and converts it into harmful energy. When picked up by a commando, it will have limited ammo, as it will not be replenishing itself. You will see the "fingers" tapping against your arm, looking for "ammo." [N/A] <III.H - Wookie Bowcaster> The standard weapon of the Wookies, each one is unique although ammo is universal and can be traded from bowcaster to bowcaster. If the fire button is pulled, held, then realeased while in scope mode, three shots will be used and the target will be impaled. When not in scope mode, the bolts will bounce off walls and bounce around (pretty fast) for 4-5 seconds. These can come back and hit you or your squad. [12 bolts per clip] <III.I - Wookie Guided Rocket Launcher> Portable, shoulder-fired rocket launcher. The rockets can be "dumb-fired" or can lock-on to targets and home in. Lock on to a target by pressing and holding the fire button until the reticle announces lock-on, then releasing the trigger. [5 rockets/launcher] <III.J - Thermal Detonator> All purpose explosive grenade. Used for clearing rooms or hallways full of enemies. Explodes 1 second after impact. [5 max can be carried] <III.K - ECD's> Electrostatic Charge Detonators are effective against technology based and organic based targets alike. It realeases an electric "field" when detonated, electrocuting all friends and foes nearby. Detonates 1 second after impact. Destroys battle droids in one hit, and usually droidekas. [5 max can be carried] <III.L - Flashbang Grenade> Diversionary flash detonator grenades release a blinding flash when detonated, giving commandos those much needed seconds to move in for the face-to-face kill. Detonates 1 second after impact. Avoid looking at the flash when it detonates, as it takes around 30 seconds to fully recover. [5 max can be carried] <III.M - Sonic Detonator> Sonic detonators release small oscillator-generated sonic blasts, damaging organic and technology-based targets alike. It can also be stuck to a solid object and will detonate in 10 seconds, or by proximity of a target. Thus, is can be tossed directly at an enemy and will explode in mid-air. [5 max can be carried] <III.N - Melee Attack> Concealed in each commandos left hand is an extendable vibro-shiv for dealing with targets up close and personal (or for detaching scavenger droids when they latch onto your facemask). <III.O - Turrets> Scattered throghout the levels are different types of stationary turrets to be used by you and your men. <III.O.1 - Republic EWEB Turret> Tripod mounted charged ion blaster with seat attachment. Effective against "soft" targets. [10,000 shot battery.] <III.O.2 - Wookie Dual Launcher> Used as anti-air weapons, these turrets launch a pair of missles that can penetrate starship grade hulls. [1,000 shot clip count, 50 clips.] <III.O.3 - Wookie QUadrail Launcher> This four-barrelled laser turret fires bolts in rapid succession. [100,000 shot ammo count, 50 clips.] <III.O.4 - Trandoshan MMLT> Fires explosive tipped, rocket propelled, anti-infantry missles. Can fire 8 missles in under 5 seconds, but must then be let to cool down. [8 missles per clip, 500 clips.] <<IV. Enemies>> A list of the enemies you'll be encountering, plus helpful hints on how to deal with them. <IV.A - Droids> <IV.A.1 - Battle Droid> The standard unit of the Trade Federation. Weak, but can be a hassle in large numbers. Wait until they bunch up and toss an ECD. Anyone need spare parts? <IV.A.2 - Super Battle Droid> SBD's are the heavy fighting unit of the Trade Federation. Armed with an incorporated blaster and cannon, these bad boys can pack a punch. They also have an energy shield build into their left arm and will sometimes activate it when shot at or a grenade is tossed their way. Anti-armor shots are the best way to handle SBD's, but those are rare. All you really need is an ECD and two thermal detonators. Toss these three grenades in rapid succession right at the SBD's feet (or between two of them) and they'll be down in no time. Be sure to target them so your squad lays down cover fire while you take them out. <IV.A.3 - Droideka> Droidekas are heavy war droids with personal shields, two twin-blasters, and the ability to curl up and roll around. One ECD usually takes these guys out, but put some fire on them just in case. Definitely target these droids when they're around, as they put out a constant stream of fire. <IV.A.4 - Scavenger Droid> Floating droids with a tractor beam-like weapon that hurts you while drawing them in, where they finally attach themselves to your visor and continue to do damage. Also, when they are near, your vision will get fuzzy, you will hear static on the comms, and your vision will get more fuzzy as they get closer. Finally, when they are "killed," they will kamikaze dive-bomb themselves at you. Use this to find them before they find you. If they attach themselves to your visor, hitting either the B BUTTON or the RIGHT TRIGGER will cause you to smack the droid several times before skewering it with your vibro-shiv and tossing it aside. <IV.A.5 - Advanced Dwarf Spider Droid (ADSD)> Built for heavy combat over uneven terrain, the ADSD has heavy armor plating, twin homing rockets, and a super high energy plasma cannon. These boys are the only real "bosses" of Republic Commando, and should be treated as such. When they appear, the first thing you should be doing is looking for anti-armor, sniper, and grenadier positions for your squad to occupy. Once that's taken care of, TARGET IT. The ADSD will be the biggest threat in the room, guaranteed. The key here is aiming for the "eye," or red lens, on the front between the two legs, below the cannon. First you'll have to blow off the armor plating on the legs, then go for the eye. Use grenades, your anti-armor rounds, and your sniper rifle. Be sure and take cover when it stops firing and scans the room, because it's looking for targets to lock onto with its homing missles. It usually fires the large cannon after that, so keep your head down. <IV.A.6 - Grievous' IG-100 Series MagnaGuard> These masters of combat only show up a few times during the course of the game, and only on Kashyyyk, but will end your mission real quick if you're not careful. These guys are General Grievous' personal guards. They've got an electrostaff melee weapon and twin guided missles for extra fun. Keep them at a distance and hit them with everything you've got. Grenades work well (especially the ECD's), as do anti-armor and sniper shots. Make sure you target them; they'll go down much faster if your whole team's working on it. Another technique (the one I use) is to keep a constant string of ECD's on the MangaGuard. When one is about to wear off, toss another. He'll be stuck there, shaking, and you'll have all the time in the world to shoot him. That is, until your ECD's run out. So don't waste time! Usually, there are ECD's around when you're fighting these guys, so you shouldn't have a problem. <IV.B - Trandoshans> <IV.B.1 - Trandoshan Slaver> Trandoshans bred to enslave wookies, these lizards show no mercy or compassion. They'll be seen with a variety of weapons, from the ACP repeater to the "slaver shotgun," even thermal detonators. They also have a knack for kicking your grenades back at you. Not too tough of opponents, make sure you stay a fair distance away, as they will drop their weapons and pull out a couple blades and charge you if you get too close (and let's just say they know how to sharpen their blades). One fun tactic is to let your squadmates get close to them. The slavers will pull out their blades, and your squadmates will pull of some nasty reversals, usually ending up sticking the slaver's blade into his own neck. In other words; your squad is immune to close- combat attacks, so let them show you what they can do. <IV.B.2 - Trandoshan Mercenary> Well trained in all forms of combat, from open-field to close quarters. They favor guerilla warfare, so don't be surprised to see them rapelling from the ceiling under cover of thermal detonators. They're armed with ACP weapons, the concussion rifle, and grenades. Not any real threat here, just shoot them. It's that easy. They're not real fast, or strong, so just shoot them. Aim for their jetpacks to send them flying. <IV.B.3 - Trandoshan Heavy Mercenary> Towering figures by themselves, the fact that they wield the largest handheld weapon in the Republic only adds to their demeanor. The Heavy ACP Repeater will tear your squad to shreds if not dealt with properly. Make sure you have someone on a sniper position when one of these bad boys shows up, and he'll be counting ceiling tiles in no time. Toss a couple grenades at his feet for good measure, and pick up his gun afterwards. <IV.B.4 - Trandoshan Grenadier> Although kind of a sub-unit to the slaver, the grenadiers are fairly prevalent, so I thought it appropriate to give them their own section. They are what their name says; grenade throwers. They'll more than likely be in an elevated position, and they'll lob grenades at your squad like it was their job (although, it probably is, but that's besides the point). Equip your sniper rifle and look for the dome helment with the two glowing eyes. Aim between them, and watch the helmets roll. <IV.C - Geonosians> <IV.C.1 - Geonosian Warrior> The first line of Geonosian defense, the warriors more than qualify for the position. Their ability to fly gives them complete dominance of the air, and their force pikes can pack a punch. Keep track of them and don't let one land behind you. Get someone on a sniper position ASAP and the warriors will be dropping out of the sky like flies. Beware the force pikes these grasshoppers weild...two stabs is all it takes to bring you down. <IV.C.2 - Geonosian Elite> The best of the best (on Geonosis anyway), the elites will end you in a heartbeat if you're not careful. They wield the elite beam weapon, putting out a constant stream of concentrated energy. Plus thay can fly, and take a whole load of damage. Target the elites when you come across them, having your squad take them down. Chances are the elite(s) will be the biggest threat in the room. Also, the heavy ACP repeater tears them apart in no time. <IV.C.3 - Geonosian Drone> The lowest level of othe Geonosian caste, the drones only purpose is to serve the higher castes. Although small and relatively harmless, lowering your guard won't get you anywhere with these guys. Watch out for the acid spit and don't let them group up. The eggs they hatch out of are usually together, so one way to get a whole bunch of them at once is to get close causing the eggs to open, and then backpedal and toss a thermal into the midst of them. <<V - Vehicles>> The walking, flying, rolling, and rumbling vehicles of SWRC (relative to the player). <V.A - Republic Gunship Designated an LAAT/I ship (Low-Altitude Assault Transport/Infantry). Studded with laser turret emplacements and belt-fed, guided-rocket pods, the gunship can easily clear a landing zone and drop off the 6-8 troops waiting inside, or to evacuate troops on the ground. <V.B - Republic AT-TE> All-Terrain Troop-Escort. Requires a pilot, a spotter, and four gunners for support. One more gunner mans the rotating projectile cannon mounted on top of the walker. Up to 20 clone troopers can disembark at a moments notice from the innards of this walking turret emplacement. It is immune to EMP and ion cannon fire and can travel at speeds up to 60 km/h. <V.C - Droid Dispensers> Not really vehicles, these steel dispensers hold more droids inside than a clown car. Just watch as they throw a steady stream of battle droids, SBD's, or droidekas at you (depending on which dispenser you happen to come across). They can only be dismantled by placing an explosive on the front, but your demolitions man will need cover, as the tide of metal and lasers will not stop until the bomb is placed and detonated. ECD's work very well at disabling all droids in the area. You'll probably give your demo man a little buzz, though. Don't worry, it wont interrupt his demolition skills. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -| = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =| - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -| <<VI - Walkthrough>> Now that we've got introductions out of the way, I think we can start playing. The following is a step-by-step walkthrough of the entire game, with ammo, bacta, grenades, assignable positions, and everything in between delicately located, detalied, and explained. Enjoy. <VI.A - Prologue: The Beginning> You'll be shown in first-person the quick tour of the clone training process. While you're still in the tank you can look around and pressing the RIGHT TRIGGER will wave your hands. As a kid, you can look around and your classmates will look at you. When you get to the part with the digital advanced dwarf spider droid, you can do everything but issue commands, change HUD modes, and throw grenades. Watch everyone get on the dropships and listen to the mission profile. <VI.B - The Clone Wars> <VI.B.1 - Geonosis> The beginning of the clone wars. The Republic's clone army is dispatched for the first time against the droid armies of the Trade Federation...and for some reason they're fighting on Geonosis. I think it's because that's where the droid processing plants are. Let's find out. <VI.B.1.a - Extreme Prejudice> Here you are, on your first mission. For now, you're seperated from your squad and you have to fight your way through the area and hook up with them one by one. This part's pretty self explanatory, with the onscreen directions telling you what to do. I'll just highlight the parts they don't explain. Watch the clone in your dropship get snagged by a Geonosian warrior and then rappel down. Work your way through the area (it's pretty linear) learning everything you're able to do. You'll get hit by scripted anti-infantry fire and then shown a bacta tank...stuff like that. Right after you get the thermal detonators, make sure to throw one actually down in the "box." Other than that it's pretty easy. You'll meet up with Delta 62, "Scorch." <VI.B.1.b - Into The Hive> Once you go through your first door, grab the DC-17m ammo, use the bacta if needed, and follow the Geonosian warrior up the stairs. Kill him and a few battle droids. There's some grenades and more ammo to the left. Have Scorch blow the door to the right and you'll see Delta 40, "Fixer," wrestling with a Geonosian. Once he pops its head have him slice the terminal to drop the shield on the doorway to the right. Head on in. Set your squad on "search and destroy" and they'll take down that Geonosian warrior pretty quick. There's bacta to the right and a doorway on the far side. Head up the stairs and toss a thermal detonator in the middle of those 2 warriors on a coffee break. They'll scream at you, but they won't move...'til the grenade goes off. There's ammo on the far side and a door to slice. You'll enter a hangar with a stone bride with two warriors on it. They'll come at you, as will battle droids. Around this time you'll get a message telling you to blow the 2 Geonosian star fighters parked in the hangar. Work your way down the ramp, and then look under where you just came from. Take out the battle droids there, utilizing the strategicly placed explosive barrels. There's bacta, ammo, and grenades at the bottom of the ramp. Once that's taken care of, have someone blow the fighters and then head through the door. You'll have to switch on low-light mode. Take out the 7-10 battle droids in the dark room and head right at the T junction (or left if you need more ammo). In the next room, kill the few warriors there and blow the barricade. There's more ammo and grenades across from the door you came in, but I can't imagine you're out of either. Battle droids will pour down the ramp and you'll be told how to tell your squad to "form up," "secure area," and the other commands on the D-pad. Kill the droids, use the bacta, and head into the next room. Take out the 4-5 battle droids there and head around the box wall the door and hit the loading point. <VI.B.1.c - The Strength of Brotherhood> You'll get a loading screen here and then rappel down the ledge as Delta 07, "Sev," takes out a couple of warriors. Break the glass and see Sun Fac escape. Kill the two other warriors and grab some ammo and ECD grenades as a SBD (super battle droid) and 5-6 regular battle droids enter. Toss an ECD and a few thermals and you're good to go. There'll be one more SBD, some ammo, grenades, and a door to breach. Toss an ECD in when the door opens and kill the battle droids. Assign Sev to the sniper position at the top of the ramp and watch him snipe Sun Fac's fighter out of the sky. Be sure to keep any warriors off Sev's back. You'll hear about Delta 36 (another squad leader) and how his squad failed to destroy the droid factory. You are now assigned this task. Head back out the way you came and to the elevator to the right. <VI.B.1.d - Infiltrate the Droid Foundry> When the door opens, take out the warrior and pick up the DC-17 sniper attachment. Breach the door and head down the hallway. Snipe the barrels on the far bridge and pick off any stragglers. Head to the left and down a ramp, get some bacta, and down another ramp. Assign someone to the snipe point on the left and clear the room of warriors and drones. Recall the sniper as you round the corner, and head into your first real tactical situation. Assign someone to the grenadier position and head into the main area. You'll see a large jamming device protected by a shield. You need to deactivate the shield before blowing the jammer, so head to the far right of the room. There's a lot of droids and warriors, so watch your back. Clear the floor up to the two side-by-side sniper spots and assign them. Recall the grenadier and have him slice the terminal at the top of the ramp. Watch his back and grab some bacta and ammo if you need it. Once the terminal's sliced, recall everyone. Assign one to blow the jamming device, one to the original grenadier spot, and one to the sniper spot covering the jammer. (Remember, contextual assignment spots only face one way so you have to use the one that's pointing in the right direction for the situation). Warriors will continue to spawn until the jammer is destroyed, so work fast. Once that's done heal yourself and your squad, stock up on ammo, and head through the opening behind the jammer. Loading point! <VI.B.1.e - Destroy the Factory> Head down and to the left and demo the door. Take out the few battle droids there and snake your way through the piping. When it empties into a room, toss an ECD to clear the battle droids. Breach the door and toss a thermal to clear the warriors. Clear the room, then slice the terminal. This will drop the shield on the ammo annex, as well as the one keeping the SBD's at bay. As should be the norm by now, an ECD and 2 thermals should take care of them. Heal up, grab some ammo and breach the door. Your squadmates thermal should take care of the battle droids waiting on the other side. Assign someone to snipe behind the crate and take out the SBD at the end of the catwalk. Set your squad on search-and-destroy (leave the sniper to cover you) and go through the door. Assign someone to the snipe crate right inside the door and toss a thermal and an ECD to clear the warriors and battle droids. There's two groups of battle droids, so you might need an extra ECD. The sniper on the catwalk should be recalled automatically by now, so assign someone to the snipe position half way into this room. Your presence should prompt two warriors to enter, along with some battle droids, but your snipers have your back. Have someone slice the console, freeing up the bacta, ammo, and the Elite Beam Weapon (for description, read III.G). Head through the next couple doors and through the piping. When the piping empties into a room, make sure your squad is following you and take the tunnel 90 degrees to your left. An SBD will snipe you through the window if you stay in the room. Equip the Eilte Beam Weapon and open up on the SBD and battle droid(s) when you enter the room. Have someone slice the terminal and prepare an ECD for when the shield goes down. Grab the bacta to the right if you need it and head through the door, killing the battle droids. This next part's a little tricky. Head right, and secure area. There's bacta, ammo, and sonic grenades. Assign someone to the snipe at the window and watch for SBD's coming through the door. Once they're out of the way, assign the sniper spot just outside of the door they came from and have your third guy slice the console to drop the shield. Your snipers will have the battle droids covered that come from the back left, but once the shield is down warriors will drop from the ceiling and will usually go for the sniper nearest you. Cover him as you have your third man slice the second console past the shield you just dropped. Blow that as soon as possible, as all remaining warriors will flee once you do so. Remember, there's bacta one room back. If it's uneeded, have your squad seek-and-destroy their way through the piping the battle droids came from. The snipe positions in the next room are really unnecessary, as all you have to do is make it to the loading point ahead. <VI.B.1.f - Advance to the Core Ship> Rappel down and you'll be instructed to locate a core ship and retrieve its launch codes. For now, lets focus on the canyon ahead. When the warriors start attacking, you know you're in the right place. Secure area, assign a demo to the rock slide, and watch the warriors rain down on you. Blow the rockslide, and head through. You'll find some clone troopers and a crashed gunship. Assign squadmates to the two sniper positions flanking the ship and the turret position on the ship. When you've had your fill of warriors (they keep coming) deassign everyone excpet the sniper, who will be covering your path, and head under the arch. Watch for the Elite Warrior that appears overhead. Target him and the sniper should make quick work of it. Follow the path and assign someone to the snipe position that appears near the bacta and watch for another Elite and more warriors. If you didn't grab the first Elite's Beam Weapon, grab this one. Recall the first sniper and secure area between the new bacta and snipe spot. Kill all the warriors and press on. Leaving the sniper for cover, assign someone to blow the boulder and secure area behind one of the rocks on the path. Warriors will appear to stop your demolitions man, so cover him. Blow the boulder and hit the loading point. <VI.B.1.g - Canyons of Death> Assign the sniper spot after you rappel down and move forward in search-and-destroy mode. Secure the bacta and assign the next two snipe points once the wave of warriors has ceased. More will come, along with battle droids and an SBD. Use your ECD's and press on once it's clear, recalling everyone. You'll need them all for this next part. As soon as you round the corner, you need to be doing four things at once. First, snipe the ball turrets mounted on the wall. Then assign the first sniper spot. Then assign the grenadier spot. Finally, take your third man around the right side of the rock pillar. Grenade the two SBD's, round the corner, and assign your third man to the sniper position. Now your squad should be laying down an impressive amount of fire on the door. Clear the area, grab bacta and ammo, and hit the loading point. <VI.B.1.h - To Own the Skies> Equip your ECD's here; you're going to need them. A few waves of battle drouds will come at you. Wait until they're stationary and then hit them all with ECD's. Doesn't matter which way you go, left or right, you'll end up in the same room. Take out the two SBD's and plant the demo on the loading mechanism. Battle droids will take pot shots at you from up above until the mechanism is destroyed. Once it is, the door will open. Take out the battle droids and assign someone to slice the window control panel. Secure area and cover him against the swarm of warriors until the window closes. Head up the ramp. Grenade the two SBD's at the top and then breach the door. Don't bother tossing a grenade, there's no one in there...yet. There's two window controls in this room, so get on them fast. Secure area and keep the warriors off your splicers. Head up the ramp. You're now at the top of the loading mechanism, and it's still running. Secure area near the bacta, assign someone to blow the mechanism, and keep the droids below off his back (especially the SBD). Once you blow the loader, watch for battle droids coming from in front and behind. Head around the destroyed loader and grenade the SBD's at the bottom of the ramp. Oh, goody...more windows. "Same drill as before, Delta's, let's shut them out!" Once the windows are shut, heal up, grab ammo, and breach that door! Lob an ECD in, and then another at the SBD in the back. Round the corner and secure area to keep your squad from throwing themselves in the fire of the two SBD's down the next ramp. ECD and two thermals later, you're heading for the loading point. <VI.B.1.i - Territory> Assign the sniper spot to cover your move through the canyon. You'll be informed your DC-17m anti-armor attachment is being dropped off, but you've got to get to it first. Work your way through the canyons until you get to the crashed gunship. Assign someone to turret duty and another to the sniper spot. Clear the 4-5 battle droids and the SBD in front of the dropship. Heal up and advance, assigning the next sniper spot. Deassign the turret and the sniper near it and search-and -destroy forward. You'll come up on where your anti-armor attachment is waiting, but they're are a few SBD's, so be careful. Assign the turret and sniper spot near the bacta and ammo pallete and grab the anti armor attachment, ammo, and grenades. Secure area behind one of the rocks and take out the incoming battle droids and SBD's. Head into the door, only to find out it's shielded and you need to find another way around. Head back out. Assign one squadmate to the demolition of the barricade and one to the sniper position right near the barricade. Once it's blown, search-and-destroy in. There's a whole lot of droids, including a bunch of SBD's. Equip your anit-armor attachment and reak havoc. Recall everyone and assign someone to the sniper spot near the bacta. Clear the area and an ADSD (Advanced Dwarf Spider Droid) will stomp through the door. An anti-armor position will be set up (right next to the sniper spot you already have assigned). Set someone there and target the ADSD (procedure for fighting an ADSD can be found in IV.A.5). Once you've taken care of the ADSD, head for the shielded door. An air-strike will be called down to drop the shield. Follow the directions of the pilot and stand back. 6-8 battle droids and 2-3 SBD's will come at you. Slice the door inside. Once through the door, you'll be faced with a bridge that needs to be extended before you can cross it. Assign someone to slice the terminal and someone to snipe. Once you extend and cross the bridge you'll be informed that you are splitting up in order to sabotage four critical systems of the core ship in order to disable it. You are tasked with disabling the super battle droid storage racks and loading mechanisms, in conunction with your squad's primary goal of downloading the ships launch codes. Slice the access port and head into the loading point. <VI.B.1.j - Infiltration of the Core Ship> At the top of the elevator, go right, through the racks, right again, through more racks, and as you turn right again, there will be a turret on the right of the hall. Take it out. A SBD will come at you from the next rack of droids, pull a rope a dope while you grab the ammo and go through the opening the SBD makes. Attacking it with anything but the blaster or sniper will undoubtedly wake up the others in the rack, so just try to shimmy around it. Follow the hall to the room with the giant windows on the right (there's bacta, grenades and ammo right before it). A Geonosian elite will be at the second window, so right as you enter the room, hug the right wall and snipe him. You've got to hit him twice, so be quick on the trigger. Place the demo charge and head into the elevator. Once at the top, kill the 4-5 battle droids and head around to the left. Kill the remaining battle droids and slice the console to sabotage the droid storage racks. The wall next to you will open. Grab the bacta and ammo and head for the elevator. At the top you want to go straight, turn right, and then left. As you do, an SBD will be waiting for you. Don't worry about waking the others up, you should be able to take them all down if you do it right. Toss an ECD past the active SBD so that it hits all the droids on the rack. Because they're not active yet, this one ECD will take them all down. Finish off the active SBD, grab the ammo and bacta, then plant a demo charge on the debris. Don't worry about the SBD on the other side of the barricade; the blast will take him out. Head right, right again, past two active SBD's and into the loading point/elevator. <VI.B.1.k - Waking the Giant> At the top of the elevator, don't move a muscle. The battle droids won't notice you and will get crushed by a falling droid dispenser. Don't worry, it's not active. Have an ECD ready for the next group of battle droids. At the T-junction, there's ammo and grenades to the left and your path to the right. As you get to the next T-junction two droidekas will roll by. Sev is hiding across the way and will tackle the third as it passes and proceed to fill its insides with hot ozone and finally put a thermal in it. Take out the two that come back and the 4-5 battle droids that come after. At the end of the hall, a bunch of droids will come from right to left, shooting at Deltas 40 and 62. Help them out. Assign one to the sniper position as you heal up and grab grenades and anti-armor ammo. 4-5 battle droids will come, and after them 2 battle droids and a droideka. Your sniper will do most of the work, but help him out. Head to the next T-junction, assign the two sniper positions, and secure area behind them. A droid dispenser will drop down the hall, so assign someone to demo it. Cover them and head past it once it's destroyed. Recall everyone, assign someone to the new sniper spot, and breach the door. Throw a thermal in as the door opens (don't worry, your squadmate next to the door will toss an ECD). Clear the immediate threat (an SBD and a few battle droids) and recall the sniper. Set your squad on search-and-destroy and head into the substation. A Geonosian elite will be to your left. Target him and don't worry about anything else until he's dead. Make sure to pick up his beam weapon. Clear the remaining battle droids. Using the hallway you came in as a reference point A) there's bacta, a sniper spot, anti-armor ammo, and thermals to your 9 o'clock, B) a sniper spot, sniper ammo, and regular ammo to your 12 o'clock, and C) an anti-armor spot to your 11 o'clock. There's also ECD's and more ammo near the forward bacta stations. Assign all three positions, grab all the ammo and grenades, and follow the objective marker up the ramp to the terminal you need to slice. Right as you start slicing stop and turn around. Two Geonosian elites will be flying at you from outside the window. Target one and your snipers should take it out before the elite's even start shooting, and then target the other one. Once they're dead, continue slicing. Once you're done start heading for the door. A spider-droid will come up a lift and start attacking. When it's dead, head down the hallway and breach the door. Toss a thermal; there will be two SBD's and 4-5 battle droids. Once they're clear head for the elevator and the loadng point. <VI.B.1.l - Belly of the Beast> Take out the battle droid at the top of the elevator and set your squad on search-and destroy. There's a sort of time limit on this part, so don't waste any time. Follow your squad down the hall. Take out the droideka and battle droids that appear and grab the ammo, ECD's, and bacta to the right. Through the door, wait until the two droidekas stop rolling and toss an ECD. They're will be two SBD's at the next door, so have your grenades ready. Breach the door and toss an ECD. There's a bunch of battle droids and a couple SBD's. Grab the ammo and grenades and head through the next door. 4 battle droids and an SBD are waiting for you. Finish them and head through. There's bacta, ammo, and grenades in the next room, as well as the door to the bridge. Heal up and breach the door. Toss a thermal and immediately start shooting the turret on the ceiling. Clear the immediate area, and look for the two sniper spots and the slice spot to the right. Assign those and take out the turrets covering them. Your spot will be across the walkway, near the windows. Here you will have a bunch of ammo and grenades and clear lines of fire to each door. As soon as your man starts slicing, a droideka will roll in from each door. Right behind them are two SBD's each. The objective here is to keep the droids off your slicer until he's done. After the dual wave of SBD's is another pair of SBD's. Right around this time your man should be done slicing, so take care of the SBD's, heal up, grab some ammo and grenades, and head for the door behind the slicing terminal. Turn left and head for the loading point. A republic gunship will blow a hole in the wall, and you're done with Geonosis. On to the Republic Assault Ship. <VI.B.2 - Republic Assault Ship> A missing Republic assault ship has reappeared on the edge of seperatist space. Have they gone rogue? Is it a trap? Delta squad is sent to check out the ghost ship. Ironically, the RAS Prosecutor was Delta squad's first home. <VI.B.2.a - The RAS Prosecutor> You'll start out in the bay of a Republic Dropship. Your mission is to investigate a Republic assault ship that was missing and has mysteriously reappeared. You'll be splitting up from your squad to better search the ship. Your objective is the flight recorder from the aft data core. You'll enter through one of the torpedo tubes and lose communication with advisor. The way is blocked, so head through the access door to the right and slice the terminal. Head back out as the door rolls aside to let you pass. The mynocks that fly past aren't a threat, but you can shoot them if you like. Head into the torpedo bay and around the torpedos to the ramps. At the top, go right (there's ammo to the left) and into the access tunnel. You'll hear Delta 62 get some static and then lose contact with him. You'll get some static in the tunnel, but there's no scavenger droid yet. Follow the tunnel until you get to a covered catwalk. A clone trooper will appear on the left and say he's there to fire a torpedo to warn the Republic. He'll get attacked by a scavenger droid as he opens the access tunnel for you. Follow it until the corridor opens up and look for a scavenger droid on the large vertical pipe near the ceiling on the far side of the area. Head to the right and you'll get jumped by anywhere from three to six scavenger droids. Follow the piping until it ends in a hallway. Kill the scavenger droid to the left. There's ammo and bacta to the right. Follow the hallway until you get to the terminal to slice. Before you start slicing, try placing a sonic detonator somewhere on the doorway between the terminal and the barricade. As soon as you start slicing, three scvenger droids will come at you from behind the barricade. Stop slicing and, if the sonic grenade doesn't take care of them, finish them off. Slice the terminal and head in for the loading point. <VI.B.2.b - Delta Down> Work your way through the droid access tunnel. If you shoot the little rolling droids before they get to the other end of the tunnel, they won't activate a scavenger droid in there. If they do, take care of it. As you exit, look for the scavenger droid on the left wall, and then again above your head past the second doorway. As you approach the T-junction a few Trandoshan slavers will pop up from behind the explosive barrels and charge at you. Take care of them and head left and down the ramp. As you near the bottom a couple more slavers will charge at you. Past them is ammo and thermal detonators. A slaver will drop from the ceiling as you head back up the ramp. Finish him and go right, killing the next slaver that springs from behind the barrels. Head into the droid accesss tunnel. Kill the slaver as he kills the clone trooper, head to the left, kill the slaver, and pick up his ACP array gun. Disarm the motion mine and proceed into the open room. Heal up and head for the console to slice. As you get to it, the door at the other end of the room will blow open and slavers will pour in as well as a couple scavenger droids from the ceiling. Clear the room and slice the console. Head into where the slavers came from and breach the door and the loading point. <VI.B.2.c - Unwelcome Visitors> Help the turrets and clone troopers take out the slavers in the next room. To make things easier, kill the slaver heading for the turret control console. A thermal should do the trick. Continue down the hall and equip your sniper rifle. Kill the slaver and his 4-5 friends that rush into the room. Head through and get some bacta and flashbang grenades. Continue down the hall clearing the slavers out. When you get to the room with the turrets on the ceiling, take them out and listen to yourself say you can use the next set of turrets to cover yourself. Head into the open room, slicing the first console to activate the turrets. Take out the 7-10 slavers that come at you and slice the second console. In the next room grab some bacta, breach the door, and hit the loading point. <VI.B.2.e - Rescue the Squad> Head out and go right. On this path will be a few slavers, a scavenger droid, and a turret on the far ceiling. You should be able to snipe the turret from the start, and use the explosive barrels to handle the slavers. As you approach the ramp, zero in on the explosive barrels at the top and shoot them as the two slavers round the corner. Walk backwards up the ramp and kill the slaver on the balcony above the ramp. Around the corner will be a slaver, a turret, bacta, and a barricade to demolish. Around the corner will be 3-4 slavers and a scavenger droid. At the top of the ramp snipe the turret and scavenger droid and then deal with the other droid and slavers. Work your way through the boxes and to the loading point. <VI.B.2.f - Alone> Head up the ramp and into the open room. Slavers will ambush you from the ceiling, first dropping thermal detonators. Toss a flashbang and finish them at your leisure. Two slavers will come from the left at the end of the hall. Clear them and head down the ramp. In the next room there's ammo and bacta. Breach the door and clear the room. Watch for the two slavers that pop out of the lockers on the wall. There's also a scavenger droid in there so watch your head. Grab the ammo and flashbangs and head to the door. Have a thermal or flashbang ready and toss it as you open the door. Take care of the slavers. In the next room kill the slaver planting the mine and disarm it. A slaver will ambush you mid-way down the hall, and a second will be walking around in the open. Another will ambush you at the door. If you haven't noticed, the ACP array gun is perfect for when they ambush you. Grab the sniper and anti-armor rounds in the next room, as well as bacta if you need it, and disarm the proximity mine. Instead of demolishing the barricade, look for the air duct on the right wall. Watch for the scavenger droid and check out the dead jedi to the right (or at least the lightsaber, 'cause that looks like a clone trooper to me. I think Lucasarts just didn't want to take the time to make a character model they were only going to use once.) Follow the air duct and get the drop on the two slavers. Around the corner is a Trandoshan Heavy Mercenary tearing up some clone troopers. Now you know why they give you sniper and anti-armor ammo. Take care of him and grab his heavy ACP repeater. If you've got time and need the bacta, go back and blow the barricade. Pick up any sniper or anti-armor ammo you didn't need at the time. Head back and blow the barricade covering the door. Two scavenger droids will drop from the ceiling. Around the corner, open up with the heavy ACP repeater and clear the room. Place a proximity charge on the explosive barrel, grab bacta, ammo, thermal detonators, and ECD's. As you approach the door a battle droid dispenser and a few slavers will enter behind you and Delta 40 will appear on the other side of the door. As he slices the door to let you in, find cover and fend off the droids. ECD's will be invaluable here. Once Delta 40 slices the door, head on through to the loading point. <VI.B.2.g - Troika> Set Delta 40 on search-and-destroy and follow him. Take out the two slavers and equip your sniper rifle. Head into the big room. Cover Delta 40 as he clears the room. Make sure to snipe the grenadiers on the catwalks. There will be another wave of them coming through the door, along with some scavenger droids. Once the room's clear, head through the door and take out the slaver at the console. Look out the window and see slavers interrogating Delta 07. Grab some bacta, place a proximity charge on the barrel, and head through the door and down the ramp. 2-3 slavers will be waiting for you before the corner, and after them, some turrets. Have Delta 40 form up and snipe the turrets. Assign him the turret position at the end of the hall. Grab the sniper ammo on the way down there and cover him as he clears the hallway ahead. Keep any slavers that get too close from slicing and dicing Delta 40. There will be a couple more slavers around the corner. Delta 40 will automatically step off the turret at this point, so head through the next door and prepare to breach and enter the room Delta 07 is in. When you breach the door, toss a thermal then a flashbang. Rush in and kill all the slavers before the flashbang wears off. Assign Delta 40 to the sniper position to cover your entry. Once the room's clear, heal Delta 07. As soon as he's healed, a heavy mercenary will come through the door, but your sniper should drop him in a few hits. Grab his heavy ACP repeater, heal up, and set your squad on search- and-destroy. They'll head through the door the heavy merc came through and make quick work of the 2-3 slavers on the other side. Hit the loading point. <VI.B.2.h - Jailbreak> Alright, time to rescue Scorch. Right as you come out of the loading, assign someone to the sniper position. Slavers will come from the hallway and the balcony above. When they're clear, take your 2nd man down the hall, leaving the sniper for cover. Follow the left side path and take position at the top. You should see 3 sniper positions below. Assign two of them and cover your men from above. Once that's clear, head down the left tunnel. Assign one to the demolition charge and the other covering the hallway. Blow the charge and move down the corridor. Go left and use the bacta. Continue on and assign someone to the sniper position ahead. Take out the inactive turrets just in case. Some battle droids will come from one of the hallways. Go down that corridor (the one without the proximity mine) and some slavers will ambush you from above. There's some ammo below where the 4-5 slavers come out. Go right towards the breachable door, but watch the slavers from the left. Before you breach the door, go up the ramp and destroy the turrets in the next room. Go back and breach the door. Watch for slavers, and assign one man to the right side sniper position and the other to slice the console. Tell your slicer to search-and-destroy when he's done and he will beeline it to Scorch. Head back to the console room and heal up. Droids will blow the barricade, so kill them. Head through and there will be a few SBD's around the corner. After them, head through the loading point. <VI.B.2.i - Tactical Supremacy> As soon as you load, your men will breach the door and get ambushed by 4-5 slavers and a couple scavenger droids. Assign the sniper position to the right and head down the hall. A few slavers later, there's bacta and a door to slice. If you breach it, the turrets on the other side will activate, so go in quietly. There are a few slavers in the main room, as well as a couple more and some thermal detonators in the room to the left. Again, slice the door. Snake your way through the corridors towards the bacta, ammo, and another door. Inside, droids will come from the left and right. Check both sides for ammo and slice the door. Immediately assign one man to demo the droid dispenser and another to snipe. Stay back from the dispenser, as the SBD's in the adjacent hallways will have a clear shot. Get them as they come out, but also be sure to cover your man. Once the dispenser's gone, clear the T-junction and search for ammo and grenades. Make sure to pick up the anti-armor pack; you're going to need it. Breach the final door to the bridge. Inside wil be 4-5 SBD's and a few slavers, including some above you. Clear them, assign 1 of the sniper spots on the far side of the room, and take the other 2 commandos up the ramps down to the console on the second floor. Assign one to one of those sniper spots and the other commando to the demo the jamming device. As you get near the jammer, the door you came in will get real crowded as 4 SBD's file in. Some elite trandoshans will drop from the ceilings too. Start sniping and drop those SBD's. Blow the jammer, clear the room, and you'll get a loading screen. <VI.B.2.j - Attack of the Clones> Listen to the mission profile, and then assign someone to a sniper position. Go down the ramps. A horde of elite trandoshans will come through the door, as well as drop from the ceiling. Finish them, grab some bacta, and head through the door. Work your way back through the corridors, constantly being ambushed by elites, until you get to a 4-way intersection with three sniper positions. Assign them, and let the fun begin. Slavers and elite trandoshans will come from all sides, and an SBD droid dispenser will drop far down the corridor. Also in one of the side passages, behind a proximity mine, is an armory. Ammo for everything except your sniper rifle and all the grenades you could ever want. Deassign one of the snipers in the side corridors and have him blow the dispenser. Cover him with the arsenal you just picked up, and follow the corridor to the next big intersection. Assign someone to the sniper spot to the right, the proximity mine to the left, and the demo charge straight ahead. Clear the elite trandoshans, search the surrounding rooms for bacta, ammo, and grenades, and blow the barricade. Through the door, assign one commando to the sniper spot and have another put a proximity mine on the barrels. You'll use that in a minute. Take the two commandos down the hall and assign them to the two sniper spots down there. The trandoshan's will start pouring in now, including dropping in on top of the proxy mine. Clear the intersections, and head through the door to the elevator and the loading point. <VI.B.2.k - Lock Down> You'll be ambushed at the bottom, so watch your butt. Stem the tide of Trandoshans coming down the hall and work your way to the sniper spot and the terminal. Clear the balcony using the side path before you have someone slice the terminal. Head to the next sniper spot, recalling the previous one. Search the balconies for ammo and grenades and watch the rocket turret down the hall. Get into position to snipe the Trandoshan out of the turret. Once he's out, send someone to man it, moving your men down and securing the area around the turret. Check all side paths and balconies on the way and once you get down there. The terminal you need to slice will be half way there, but you need to secure the rockt turret first. Once that terminal's sliced, follow your objective tracker to the next one. Slice it, and poisonous gas will fill the corridors. You're fine; the Trandoshans on the other hand... Follow the objective tracker to the demo site and blow it. Head down the hole and into the loading point. <VI.B.2.l - The Wrath of the Republic> Turn on your low light mode. Work your way out of the depressed area and through the door, watching for scavenger droids. Assign the sniper position to clear the hall. Slice the turret control panel behind the sniper, and the turrets down the hall will go to work clearing the Trandoshans. Work your way down the hall to the next turret control terminal, but make sure to disarm the proximity mine first. Let the turrets do their thing, and move on. Head through the door and down the ramp. Take the first left and clear the balcony. Assign the turret spot (forget about the sniper spot, it doesn't have a good angle to where you're going). Head back out and down the ramp to the lower entrance into the hangar. Watch for the Trandoshan with a concussion rifle. Inside the hangar, it's going to get a little hairy. You need to do a bunch of things at once. Equip the consussion rifle. As soon as you enter the hangar, hit the left rocket turret with the concussion rifle, assign someone to the sniper spot, and assign someone to disarm the proximity mine forward and to the right of the sniper spot, in the open. You need to keep constant fire on the two rocket turrets with the concussion rifle so your man can get the proxy mine. When it's disarmed, assign someone to the first turret and head behind it to secure the area back there. Now, turn and hit the other turret. The whole time you're doing this, the Trandoshans will keep coming out of the dropship, so you need to work fast. Plus there's a bunch of them with concussion rifles, so watch your back. Once you have both turrets, Trandoshans will stop spawning and your men will start hitting the dropship with the rocket turrets. Once it's gone, heal up, grab ammo, recall your man on the turret on the level above you, and on to the next hangar. <VI.B.2.m - Saving the Ship> Head down the maintenance ramp and snake your way through the access tunnel, and then through the hallway. In the hangar, you are going to set up a defensive against the incoming droid dispensers. Assign all your men to plant proximity and demo charges on the explosive barrels in the hangar. There's about 6 of them, so you're going to have to work with them if you want to get it done in time. When they're done, assign them to the grenadier, sniper, and anti-armor spots. You will be roaming around, setting off explosives when the need arises. The first dispenser (battle droids) will land in the front right of the hangar. Hey, check it out, there's a charge on those barrels. BOOM! One droid dispenser down. The next dispenser (SBD's) will land on the front left, but the explosives there won't be enough, so you're going to have to assign someone to demo the dispenser. Have your sniper do it; he's probably doing the least damage right now, seeing as these are SBD's. While you are doing this, another dispenser will enter (battle droids), landing in the back of the hangar. You'll also be told the hangar force field can be shut down by blowing the gold and blue thing in the left front of the hangar, the force-field regulator. You can do both of these demo's at once if you keep constant fire and ECD's on the SBD's. Once the two dispensers and the force-field regulator are destroyed, search the room for ammo and use the bacta in the back right. Wasn't that fun? Well I hope so, because you get to do it twice more, but each time there will be more droids waiting for you before you even get there. You're kind of catching them in the middle of attacking; so while you clear hangar A, they're setting up in B, C, and D. Here we go! Head through the door and to the loading point. <VI.B.2.n - Holding the Line> Head through the corridor and tag the elite Trandoshan walking up the ramp. At the top on the balcony, assign someone to the grenadier spot to the right and someone else to plant a proxy mine on the explosive barrels near the bacta. Who knows...they might come in handy later. Take your 2 remaining commandos and head down to the hangar floor. On the way down, watch for battle droids and plant a proxy mine on the barrels at the bottom. As you enter the hangar, assign someone to the sniper spot and also to put a mine on the barrels. Take your last commando and head for the far back of the hangar. Look for the speeder and the console to slice. Slice the console, and the speeder will careen into the far battle droid dispenser. About now, another droid dispenser will drop in the middle of the hangar, and out come the SBD's. Cover your man with anti-armor grenades as he demos the SBD dispenser. Once the bottom floor is clear, assign someone to blow the force-field regulator and head back to the balcony; there's a dispenser waiting for you, this time droidekas. Blow it and scrounge for ammo and grenades. Once you have the force-field regulator blown, the door to the next hangar will open and constant battle droids will come out, so be quick with your scrounging. There's a heavy ACP repeater near the hole in the hangar, but your concussion rifle should suffice for now. Head to the next hangar, through the swarm of battle droids. Hit the loading point. <VI.B.2.o - Overwhelming Odds> Assign the sniper spot, grab the ammo and grenades, and get to laying those traps down the hall. There's a few SBD's on the other side of that door, so let's lay a trap for them. Once the mines are set, slice the door. The SBD's will hear you and come blundering in, setting off the traps. Keep the one door open so your sniper can help in case the mines don't finish the SBD's off. Pretty much same plan for the next hallway. Lay all the traps you can before the droidekas get there, assign the sniper spot, secure area behind the sniper, and let those bags of bolts blow themselves up. The barrels aren't placed as strategically, and the droidekas are fast enough to avoid the mines, so you might need to help the sniper finish them off. Also, if you want, you can try shooting the barrels as the droidekas roll past them. Whatever floats your boat. At the junction, go right if you need anti-armor grenades. If not, recall the sniper, heal up, and head right for the hangar. In this one, the droids are already set up, so you've got a fight ahead you can't win, at least with tactics. Let's try another way... As soon as you get to the hangar, bang a hard left and secure area behind the two assignable spots. Assign them. Toss an anti-armor shot and a few ECD's and thermals to soften up the room, but don't proceed out. You will not be demoing these dispensers. Instead, from behind the barricade, look for a droideka to the left. Kill him from your position, and take your 3rd man past where the droideka was (under cover of ECD's of course) to the back of the room and assign him to one of the spots there. This is where the having "Auto-Pull" on comes in handy. Your other 2 commandos are already assigned, but assign them to positions where you are, and they'll come running. Make sure to toss an ECD or two first to clear a path. Do this for both commandos, finally having the two offensive positions assigned and also the console. Hold back the horde while your man slices. When he's done, an AT-TE will rise via elevator behind your position. Take that bad boy for a test drive. Press A to get in and the RIGHT TRIGGER to fire. You can take care of the droid dispensers with the AT-TE's main gun, so have fun clearing the hangar. Make sure to hit the force-field regulator...or Scorch will yell at you. Once that's done, hop out and search the hangar for ammo, grenades, use the bacta, and head underneath the AT-TE to the loading point. <VI.B.2.p - Deus Ex Machina (God From the Machine)> Snake your way through the tunnel and out to the left. Hit the battle droids working the console, but keep heading left, to the covered area with the bacta and ammo. Secure area there. What you're going to want to do here is basically clear the hallway one section at a time, assigning sniper spots as you get to them. The battle droids, SBD's and droideka's will continue to come until you get to the other end of the hallway. Make the turrets your number one priority, as they will tear your team apart. I found tossing an ECD in the middle of the hallway hits the turrets on both sides, as well as any droid in the middle. Go back to the covered area for ammo or bacta if you need it. Head through the next door and up the ramp, clearing the battle droids. This is the last part of the RAS, so you know it's going to be a doozy. Secure are at the top of the ramp, and assign the sniper and anti-armor spots. The three consoles behind you will have to be sliced, and will each take 60 seconds to do. There's two ways to do this; either have one slicer do all three while you and the other two Delta's cover him, or assign all three commandos to the consoles and cover them yourself. This is hard mode, therefore droids tend to flow like wine. There will be so many droids coming at you, I recommend only having one slicer. Obviously ECD's will be your best friend here. All you really have to do is keep the battle droids from getting all the way up, and stopping the SBD's from even starting up the ramp. Droideka's will only appear in the top middle port, so don't worry about them sneaking up on you. Once all three consoles are sliced, the ship's turbolasers will activate, destroying the droid control ship out the window. The RAS Prosecutor is safe. In the words of Sev; "No one steals a ship from the Republic while we're around." On to Kashyyyk... <VI.B.3 - Critical Discoveries> Trandoshan slavers have invaded the Wookie homeworld of Kashyyyk and launched a cruel slave trade. Delta squad is sent in to help the Wookies, as well as continue the investigation of the apparent alliance between the Trandoshans and the Trade Federation...or maybe we're just looking for some Wookie life-debts. Who knows, we might get lucky.... <VI.B.3.a - The Rescue of Tarful> Your mission is to find the wookie leader, Tarful. Get to it. Follow the path to the left. Set up snipers and take down the 3 trandoshans around the campfire. Continue on to the main gate. Assign the 2 sniper positions and clear the area. There should only be a few Trandoshans, but one will go for the turret to the right. Once that's clear, move one man to the grenadier spot and slice the door yourself. Before you can even finish, Trandoshans will flood the area. Clear the area and continue through the door. The walkway at the end of the hall will drop, blocking the door. The exit will be blocked as well, and there's Trandoshans on the catwalks to boot! You'll get a message to blow the hatch, so cover your demo guy as he works. Blow it and head through to the loading point. <VI.B.3.b - Hard Contact> Exit the tunnel and take out the spotlight. Set up the two sniper spots and have your third man blow the door on the ramp. Trandoshans and scavenger droids will come over and through the walls, but your snipers should have no problem. Grab ammo, flashbangs, and sonic detonators. Blow the door and head through. Toss a flashbang first. Clear the hall, and move around the corner. Your men won't go on and the Trandoshans won't stop coming until that spotlight is taken out, so get to it. Watch for the Trandoshan with the concussion rifle. Clear the hall and the bacta room and get health. At the top, go to the window and look at the incoming ship. Then blow the other window, watching for Trandoshans on the far ledge. Hit the loading point. <VI.B.3.c - From the Shadows> After rapelling, head to the breachable door. Assign the grenadier position and secure area aorund him. Watch for the Trandoshans coming from the rear and on the catwalks. Once it's clear, breach the door. There's a heavy mercenary on the other side, so target him and start blasting. He should have so much plasma coming at him he won't even be able to return fire. Grab his gun and the thermals behind the barricade. Through the next door, clear the room and assign a commando to slice the terminal. As he does, the door to his left will open, revealing Trandoshans. Cover him and blow the back of the cell when he opens it. Clear out the remaining Trandoshans. There's a Wookie bowcaster in the door the Trandoshans were shooting your slicer from, but it's up to you if you want to trade it for the heavy ACP repeater (or even the concussion rifle, if you kept it). Continue on, and assign the anti-armor spot to deal with the heavy mercenary in the next room. If your Wookie companion is still with you, he'll probably get in the way of the anti-armor shots, but he can take care of himself. Continue on and free the next Wookie. Heal up and watch the Wookie show off his strength. He'll jump in the spotlight, so take it (and the ensuing Trandoshans) out quick. Clear the next room, head to the top, and to the loading point. <VI.B.3.d - The Bodyguards> Kill the spotlight above you, and head around to the left. Clear the path and take out the next spotlight around the next corner. Remember, Trandoshans will continue coming until the spotlight is destroyed, so make that your first priorty when there is one. Assign the sniper position, but watch for the grenadier under the spotlight. Clear out the "nest" and heal up. Then, breach the door. Secure area in the middle of the room and wipe the floor with the Trandoshans. Slice the console to open the door. There's no way to save the Wookie on the other side, so don't worry about it. Clear the ramp of lizards, grab ammo and grenades, and head through. Look out the viewport. Identify Grievous. The MagnaGuard will close the window. Blow the barricade next to you and head down. Clear the Trandoshans and blow the energy shield barricade. Hey, there's Tarful. Nice hat, man... Breach the door, and get ready for a fight. Have your ECD's equipped, and toss one as the door opens. Tarful, although he is a big Wookie, will only get in the way of you killing the guards, so try to make sure he stays outside the door. I'm really not sure how I did it; I just turned around, and realized he hadn't made it through the door. Assign the sniper and anti-armor spots on the ramps and target the MagnaGuard. Use the technique I have under the MagnaGuard section to take it out. There's a second one, so don't be careless with your grenades. There are some ECD's around in case you run out. Once that's done, you'll get a loading screen. <VI.B.3.e - Obliterate the Outpost> Follow the path and take out the Trandoshan patrol. Secure area just outside the beginning of the outpost when you get to it. Snipe any lizards you can see, and then assign a commando to disarm the first proxy mine. Doing this will trigger a bunch of grenades to be thrown and then slavers to rush through the minefield. Take out the ones that get through. They should take some of the mines with them, but disarm any left. Get to the ridge and work your way through the paths of the outer defense. When you get to the assignable grenadier spot, assign it! Clear the battle droids out of the trenches and use the bacta at the end. Assign the sniper spot at the top of the hill and take out the missle turret across the way. Watch for the slaver rush (that means grenades) from over the wall. Get someone in that turret and go back and use bacta if you need it. Blow the gate at the end of the maze and hit he loading point. <VI>B.3.f - Aim for the Heart> In the next area, your priority is the laser turret. Take it out, and then clear the area of droids. Place proxy and demo charges on all available places and secure area near the bacta. 5-6 battle droids, 3-4 droidekas, and 5-6 SBD's will be coming down the path, so move quickly. Once they arrive, the charges, coupled with the turret and your onslaught of grenades should stop them in their tracks. There's also anti-armor grenades behind the explodable barricade near the bacta. Around the next corner, behind another explodable barricade, are sniper rounds and a Wookie rocket launcher. In the next area, a battle droid dispenser will drop. Standard operating procedure here, except there's 2-3 scavenger droids way up in the air. God, I hate those things. When that's dealt with, blow the containers around you, revealing bacta, thermals, and a path up the ramp. Past the lizards is a droid controlling the minefield below, but he's protected. Blow the energy barrier, take him and his 3 friends out, and slice the console to reactivate the minefield; some droidekas have parked right on top of them. When you get to the landing pad, immediately assign someone to demo it and secure area near him. Cover against the rapelling lizards and blow the demo charge when your man is done. Hit the loading point on the other side. <VI.B.3.g - Critical Strike> Demo the barricade, but watch for the Trandoshans climbing over. Blow it, clear out the rest, and watch for the SBD's coming up from below after they blow the next barricade. Assign the grenadier spot below and take out the Trandoshans that come at you. Don't go straight to the missle turret yet; we're going to flank it. Past the lizards, assign the sniper spot and help him take out the turret. Assign that, recall the grenadier, and assign 2 sniper spots in the main area. Heal up, grab ammo, and let the turret take care of the hordes of battle droids. An SBD dispenser wil drop in the next area. Assign someone to demo it and cover them. Blow the thing and clear the SBD's. Go back and heal up if you need to (I did). Blow the next barricade and snipe the lizards on the top of the rise. Breach the door and O MY GOD, an ADSD. Luckily, there's an easy way to take this one out. Slice the console to the right and a crane will drop its load on the ADSD. Then, three droid dispensers will drop on the landing pad. Luckily, there's an inbound gunship. Loading Point! <VI.B.3.h - Bridge at Kachirho> Work your way through the Wookie structures, watching out for scavenger droids. Once you get to the corridor with all the blocked exits, one will be breached. Assign the new grenadier spot and cover him while he seals the breach with thermals. Head through the door to your left, watching for scavenger droids. Hit the loading point through the last door. <VI.B.3.i - Turning Point> Here comes the fire. There's multiple assignable points in the area, so take your pick. I recommend the sniper up the ramp and two anti-armor spots. Clear the area, and then you'll be instructed to take down a tree branch above the breached area to close it. I used anti-armor shots. Then, more lizards and a heavy mercenary will come from the left. Target the heavy and they should all be counting tiles in no time. There's grenades and a Wookie rocket launcher in the area as well. Breach the door across from where the heavy mercenary came from. Toss a sonic if you have one. Clear the room and go left out of there to the loading point. <VI.B.3.j - The Gauntlet> Hit your low-light mode and clean up these proxy mines. Once you get to the bridge, assign the sniper spot right there and secure area behind him. Snipe the laser turret to the left and then assign the other sniper, the anti-armor, and the turret. Now you place a demo on the barricade while your men cover you. Blow it and make your way through. Assign the next two sniper spots and the grenadier spot. Take out the laser turret to the left and get someone in it. Here's where we have a litte fun with AI. With everyone still assigned their spots, go into the next room and draw out the Trandoshans, including the heavy mercenary. Your team will clean them up quick. Deassign everyone and head through. Clean up the few lizards who show up late and hit the loading point. <VI.B.3.k - Detour> Head down the ramp and disarm the proxy mine. Have your squad on search-and-destroy and follow them up the ramp. Assign the 2 sniper spots and take the third across the catwalk and breach the door. Clear the room and recall your snipers. Follow the stairs and clear the next room. Grab some bacta and head out into the main hall. Clear the area around the sniper spots, then assign them. Grab ammo and grenades while your squad takes down the 5-7 slavers that come at you. Go up the ramp and through the door to the right. Hit the loading point. <VI.B.3.l - A Bridge Too Far> Here come the tactics. Assign secure area right outside the door, out of the way of fire. Assign one man to the sniper spot in the open, toss an ECD in the middle of the battle droids and SBD's, and them hit them with the thermals. Once the immediate area is clear, assign a man to the grenadier spot up ahead, but cancel the order AS SOON AS the far door starts to open. Now, there are droids heading toward you, and the laser turret is active. Clear the area of droids, and reassign the grenadier spot. Now, assign the left anti-armor spot and the SBD's should start coming from the two dispensers on either side of the other end of the bridge. Deassign your rear sniper and assign him to demo the right dispenser. Cover him (don't forget about the SBD's coming from the left) and blow it when he's done. Now, assign the right anti-armor spot and the turret. Deassign your left anti-armor spot and have him demo the dispenser. Cover and detonate. Heal up, grab ammo and grenades, and have the right anti-armor, turret, and the new anti-armor (to the right of the door) assigned. Place a demo on the center blocks and blow it. Oops... Ok, slice the door. Make sure your guys are still assigned to those spots, because here comes an ADSD. Get that Wookie rocket launcher out. When the ADSD's done, head through the tunnel. Clear the room and pick up the rockets. Go up the stairs to the window and hit the fuel line below the bridge. Loading Point! <VI.B.3.m - The Wookie Resistance> Head back to the tunnel and Trandoshan Elite will blow the barricade. Past them, some battle droids. In the next room, assign a commando to disarm the proxy mine and keep the scavenger droids off him as he works. Disarm the next one and assign the sniper spot to the right. Work your way through the room, assigning new spots as you come to them. At the end, you'll need to demo a barricade. As soon as that's started, lizards will come from the middle. Make sure the anti-armor facing back the way you came is assigned, as well as the first sniper spot, and you should have no trouble. Blow the barricade, heal up, and head through. Right before the loading point, there's some anti-armor grenades. <VI.B.3.n - Behind Enemy Lines> Head through and to the left. About half way through, you'll be attacked from in front and behind. As soon as the lizards start coming, the two small crates in the middle will become a sniper and an anti-armor spot. Assign them and secure area in the middle. Once the vents stop spewing Trandoshans, place a proxy mine on the barrel head around the corner. Slicing the console will trigger more lizards, as well as an anti-armor spot right by you. Assign it and cover your slicer. Once that's done, head through the door. Assign the sniper spots and clear the room of elites. Watch your back, as more lizards may be comeing from the room you just left. Slicing the far console will trigger scavenger droids, so keep your men assigned. Through the door and down the ramp, assign the sniper to the right and the anti-armor to the left. Watch the window for Trandoshans and droidekas. Same with down the hall. Assign the sniper immediately to the right and help him snipe the grenadiers on the far boxes. Be quick about it, as they just keep lobbing thermals, and they're pretty accurate. There's also a droideka and some battle droids on the floor. Assign the sniper spot near the bacta (left side) to help, and then the anti-armor spot up in the middle, looking left. He'll do fine clearing the hall, so deassign the other two and work your way forward. A few more battle droids, and then the loading point. <VI.B.3.o - V.I.W.> Clear the next room and breach the door. Next room: same. Next room, assign the anti-armor spot and place proxys on the barrels ahead and to the immediate right. Tarful should be kicking ass up on the balcony. Clear the room and head through the door. Use all available assignable spots, and watch for SBD's. There's ammo, anti-armor grenades, and a bowcaster in there as well. Out in the big room, assign the sniper and anti-armor spots as they become available, lay traps, and head around to the right and up the ramp. Cover the Wookie and clear the room. Grab the sniper ammo and meet up with Tarful on the balcony. Follow him and breach the door. Down the SBD and move on through to the loading point. <VI.B.3.p - Saving Ammo> This next part's a little tricky. Droid dispensers will drop on the left and right (battle droid and SBD, respectively). Assign the sniper and anti-armor facing the SBD dispenser and the sniper facing the battle droid dispenser. You will be the demo man this time. Blow the battle droid dispenser first, as it takes less time. Then, deassign the sniper covering you and move on to the SBD dispenser. Assign someone to demo it and all three of you cover him, using the explosive barrels to the right to full effect. Once the room's clear, breach the door. Toss a thermal, and clear the battle droids and SBD's. Use the explosive barrels to take on of them out, and then target the other. Heal up, grab ECD's, anti-armor, regular ammo, and move on. Here, assign the two sniper and grenadier spots immediately and clear the end of the hall of droids. As you move to the door, it will spew more droids, and Trandoshans will come over the balcony from your right, behind the plants. Once the area's secure, move on. In the next room, take out the droids and the laser turret and then move and secure the left raised area. There should be a sniper spot, a grenadier spot, and the turret for your men. For you, the two consoles to slice, along with some anti-armor shots and grenades. Guess what happens as soon as you start slicing the consoles... Trandoshans. From behind! O well, the turret will take care of them. Once the consoles are sliced, a dispenser will drop across the way ...with backup. Send your grenade man to demo it. Targeting comes in real handy here, as it basically tells the turret where to shoot. Coupled with your other man sniping, the SBD's should be no problem. Cover your man as he demos, and assign him the sniper spot right next to the dispenser when he's done. Blow it and clear the area. Collect ammo, heal up, blow the barricade and move on to the loading point. <VI.B.3.q - Live Ordnance> Assign the sniper and grenadier spots and secure area behind them. Halt the tide of Trandoshans and then assign the anti-armor spot further up. This should trigger some more Trandoshans. Move on when it's clear. Next room: assign the sniper to the right and two slicers for the consoles. Dispensers will land, so secure area in the back right, near the bacta, and assign the sniper next to the Wookie on the turret, and the sniper and grenadier up and to the left of that. Head down and slice the ammo console yourself. Right before you finish, Geonosian Elite will show up. Deal with them, and then blow the SBD dispenser. Clear the area, heal up, grab all the ammo you can (and an Elite beam weapon of you want) and blow the barricade. Hit the loading point. <VI.B.3.r - Fate of the Resistance> Ok, turn left inside. There's an SBD to the right and left of the sniper spot in the middle. Assign the spot if you think you can take them down fast enough. Leapfrog your men from spot to spot until the bottom floor is clear. Grab anti-armor and health and move up to the next floor. When you get to the top, several surrounding windows will open revealing Trandoshans, most with concussion rifles. Assign the two sniper spots at the top of the ramp and take the 3rd man with you around the catwalk. Toss a few sonic detonators at the Trandoshans as you run by the windows. Have your man slice the console to close the shutters on the windows. Follow Tarful to the next room. Assign the anti-armor position and the sniper position across from it, near the bacta. Two of Grievous' MagnaGuard will attack, one at a time. There's anti-armor grenades and ECD's up the ramp, behind some boxes. Remember to target the guards, and they should go down quick. Heal up, grab the rest of the ammo, and hit the loading point through the door. <VI.B.3.s - Search and Destroy> Head toward your Wookie guide. Have an ECD ready and toss it up the ramp at the SBD and battle droids. Around the corner, more battle droids and SBD's. Breach the door and clear the room. The next door holds an ADSD. Immediately when you get inside, start shooting the tall tanks on the four corners of the ADSD. When blown, assignable positions will be revealed. Starting with the first one on the left and going clockwise, the positions they reveal are: sniper, grenadier, anti-armor, grenadier. Take your pick. There's also sniper and anti- armor ammo off to one side, and regular ammo and ECD's on the opposite side. Once he's down, head through the door and take out the droids there. Heal up. Next, move up this "promenade," assigning the two immediate spots. Secure area behind something big to keep your third man out of the line of fire and clear the way. Droidekas will roll in, so have those ECD's ready. Move up, deassigning your men and reassigning them to the sniper, grenadier, and anti-armor spots at the top to deal with the ADSD (grab the anti-armor ammo on the way). Keep your men assigned and pop that door ahead. Two SBD's should be on the other side, and your men have perfect angles to bombard them. Once that's clear, move on, taking out the last SBD further in the room. Heal, grab the ammo and grenades, and breach the door. This next part's a little tricky. Assign the two spots directly in front of you and also for someone to demo the SBD dispenser. You'll have to do 3 things at once to cover your man properly, but it can be done. There's ammo down the right side if you need it. Once that's blown, start working on the droideka dispenser. Once the areas clear, make sure to grab the anti-armor grenades hidden down the left side. Don't worry about health; there's bacta past the fuel tank. Clear the area and blow the right fuel tank to make a path. Grab the ammo and grenades and hit the loading point. <VI.B.3.t - Heart of the Citadel> Work your way through the snaking paths, using the assignable positions when available and grabbing all the ammo you can. You'll run into several Trandoshan heavy mercenarys along the way. Remember to target them and grab their gun afterwards. When you get to the door, breach it and toss in a thermal. Heal up and breach the next one after you assign the sniper position for cover. Enter and clear the room, assigning the positions. Grab ammo and then open the next door, but don't deassign your men. Draw the heavy mercenary and the elites from that room back into yours to give your men some clear lines of fire from their positions. There's some sniper rounds and sonic detonators in the gazebo in the next room. Grab them and head through the next door. Some Trandoshans will hit you from behind as you leave the gazebo room. Heal up and breach the next door. Clear the immediate opposition and then assign the two sniper spots covering the platform. Have your third man slice the console and keep the Geonosian Elite off him. The console will take 60 seconds to slice and the elite's will keep coming until it's sliced. Your heavy ACP repeater will tear them to shreds, so have it handy. You'll problably use all the ammo in it, so look around for an elite beam weapon. When the lights come on, head through the next door and heal up. Same thing in the next room. Assign the slicer, the sniper on the main level, and the other one down by the slicer. Cover your slicer and head out when the lights come on. Heal up and hit the loading point. <VI.B.3.u - Moving Upstream> Move into the room and drop the first SBD. Assign the anti-armor spot to the left and head right. A path in the boxes leads to a sniper spot. Clear the SBD and assign the spot. Back and to the right is a grenadier spot and some ammo. Grab the ammo. Assign your last man there. By the time you get to this point, the man you assigned to the first anti-armor point should have cleared the way. Deassign him and set him to the anti-armor spot on the far forward left, next to the door. Clear the SBD's. Now, without deassigning your men, move to the door. Trigger the droidekas and back up. Once they're taken care of, deassign the anti-armor man and assign him to demo the SBD dispenser in the next room. Cover him! Pull all your men when the dispenser goes down and move on. Don't follow the Wookie in the next room; instead, breach the other door (after healing, of course) and work your way through there. There's a bunch of droids, and you'll end up in the hangar. Assign the turret to the left and blow the tanks to create sniper spots. Grab the Wookie rocket launcher to the right. Three MagnaGuard will appear at the end of the hangar, amidst the Wookies. They shouldn't even make it to you. Once they're gone, battle droids spill out of one of the side passages. Clear them and move through. Past the 4-5 battle droids is a door. Breach it. Clear the promenade. There's an SBD dispenser half way through, and then a bunch of droidekas roll in. You've got Wookies...what could go wrong? Heal up at the end before more SBD's come through the door. Make sure to be grabbing ammo all the way up this promenade, because it's mostly the explosive kind. In the next room, immediately blow the tanks to create sniper spots. Clear the elevator and hit the loading point. <VI.B.3.v - The Final Strike> In the next room is an ADSD...and a MagnaGuard...and droidekas...and SBD's. Wow. Ok, assign the anti-armor position, one of the sniper spots, and one of the grenadier spots. Target the ADSD and then you take the MagnaGuard. There's a Wookie rocket launcher; that should drop it in a hurry. When the ADSD goes down, clear the SBD's and droidekas. Heal up and move on. Past that, drop the droidekas and breach the door. Next, several SBD's. Then, some bacta. Four turrets for four commandos, eh? What a concidence. Here's where you start losing your men. Sev will leave you and mount the turret. And then there were three... In the next room, we see our old friend, the Geonosian Warrior. Clear the room up until the two sniper spots back to back. Place a proxy on every barrel you find and wait for the attack. Warriors, along with a MagnaGuard, appear. Have those ECD's ready for the Mangaguard. When it's clear, move on. Another turret, this one for Fixer. And then there were two... Breach the door and put proxys on the barrels. Make sure to check the back of this room for ammo and grenades. Lure the SBD's into the blast radius. The next group can be put down easily using the explosive fuel tanks lining the hall. Clean up any leftovers. Heal up at the bottom and breach the door. ADSD! Blow the right fuel tanks to reveal an anti-armor spot. Set your man up there and go grab ammo. Target the ADSD, watch for Warriors, and don't stop until it's done! Heal up, grab ammo, and head on. Turn on your low-light visor and watch for warriors. There are 5-7 of them, so stay sharp. Use your sonic detonators and toss them into the midst of the Warriros. Grab the Wookie rocket launcher and breach the door. Guess what...another ADSD. Also, Warriors. Blow the fuel tanks to your right to reveal an anti-armor position and assign Scorch to it. Target the ADSD and keep the Warriors off Scorch. Grab the ammo laying around, also. Your Wookie rocket launcher will do the most damage against the ADSD, so use that up first. When that thing goes down, clear the area, heal up, grab ammo and breach the next door. There shouldn't be any enemies between this room and the next one with bacta. There's a Warrior right before Scorch gets his turret, though. And then there was one... All by yourself, grab the ammo and sonic detonators near the bacta. Breach the door and head in. Geonosian drones will drop from the ceiling, as will warriors. I just ran through the room past everything, turning around every now and then to toss a sonic detonator. Past that room and past a few more Warriors is your turret. Mount up and shoot the indicated parts of the ship overhead. Make sure no Warriors or drones you left behind sneak up on you while you're in the turret. When the ship is destroyed, you're told to regroup. Sev, however, will not make it to you. Scorch and Fixer fight over whether or not to disobey a direct order and go back for him. You end up not going back, and jumping on a gunship and evacuating. You are then told your squad was the recon force for a much larger invasion. You were not suppossed to know, but your intel and reconnaissance paved the way for the major attack. You are given orders to get back to the fighting. "Delta Squad, Lock and Load!" You have beaten Star Wars Republic Commando. I'd keep an eye out for a sequel, though. With Sev missing, and the real fight starting...it can't end like this! (This reminds me of Halo 2's ending...except without the giant, philosophising, venus fly trap). <<VII - Combat Hints/Tips/Strategies>> -When moving through an area, have your squad in search-and-destroy mode for maximun effectiveness. Stay 2nd or 3rd back in the line so as to be able to see ahead, but not be the first one through the door. -Wait until battle droids bunch up and toss an ECD to fry all of them at once. -When tossing grenades at slavers, don't toss it right at their feet. Most of the time, they will kick it back at you. Toss it to the side or behind them. -Whenever possible (like when shooting stationary scavenger droids) use the DC-15s sidearm. It's unlimited ammo will save your other ammo for later. -Your squadmates are pretty much immune to close combat attacks. Except for SBD and MagnaGuard attacks, they can reverse any melee attack thrown at them, instantly killing the enemy. Use this to your advantage with slavers, warriors, and the like. -Smacking an enemy with the LJ-50 Concussion Rifle will have the same effcect on them as if they were hit with an ECD. -If you come upon an assignable position, but there are no enemies around, assign it anyway. It's there for a reason. Enemies may not be there now, but they will be shortly. -When you assign a commando to a grenadier position, a circle will appear on the ground in front of them, showing you where they will be throwing their grenades. Use this to see if assigning that position will have any tactical advantage. -Keep track of all bacta stations and un-used up ammo. Go back for it if you run out ahead. -Keep the hints on the first time you play through Republic Commando. It will lessen the learning curve a lot. -When fighting a droideka, run towards it and get as close as you can, in the front. You can fit between his arms and he will not be able to hit you. Then, use your melee attack to save ammo. If there's more than one droideka, put the one you're working on between you and the others, as best you can anyway. -Turn Auto-Pull on. This will make assigning your men to positions easier (as they won't have to be manually recalled first) and will automatically pull them off a position if you forget about them. -Whenever there is a spotlight, make it your priority to take it out. The enemies will continue to come until it is destroyed. -Trandoshan Elite's jet packs are explosive, even when the wearer has been killed. Use them as improvised explosive devices to take out surrounding enemies. -If a member of your team gets stuck and can't move, there's a few things you can do to release him: 1) Kill and revive him 2) Save/load 3) Restart level 4) If there's not much of the section left, just leave him. He'll reappear at the beginning of the next section. <<VIII - Cheats/Unlockables>> Unlock Foley Featurette - Clear Geonosis. Unlock Special Ops Featurette - Clear the Assault Ship.

Iíve noticed that if you then slice the door terminal instead of using the breach manoeuvre then any turrets on the other side will also be deactivated. Hope that helps. A: In the section on the RAS with the turrets, I tell the reader to slice instead of breach to avoid the turrets activating. In one instance, you will have the ability to get into the room by a roundabout way. Obviously you won't be able to take your squad (because the roundabout way involves jumping down from something). So, destroy the turrets and then go back and breach the door. The moral of the story; breach whenever you can, but when you are told to slice, slice. Thanks for the thought, Bader. Q: Hey there, I printed out your walkthrough for Star Wars Republic Commando, from gamespot. I have tried the cheats and they don't work. I even tried editing the ".ini" file in the system directory and changed the damage to 0.0 but I still die. When I push the tilde button the console comes down but the only codes that have worked are the go to the next level and the suicide cheats. "Loaded" or "god" or "all ammo" or "all weapons;" they do nothing. Some of the cheats just disappear like I didn't even put them in. What's the problem?? Am I putting the cheats in wrong or what? Now, I have noticed that certain letters in the codes are capitialized but even if I have caps on or off, they appear in caps on the console. Please Help (P.S. I have the PC version) A: Exactly Eric, you have the PC version. These codes are for the Xbox version. Sorry dude. Check online somewhere for the PC codes. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ <<X - Legal Stuff>> ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Well I hope this guide, in some way, helped you with something important or tricky or told you something you didn't know.
