Camera Movement: Looking Around Corners/Staying Close to Walls

One thing you might have noticed by now is the suddeness of encountering the lone tank travelling around the field looking for some victims to flay, and how often it happens. Or that sudden contingent of forces around the corner. One thing you do have on them, though... your player can magically see around corners.

When staying close to a wall, you typically are out of danger from anything coming at you from any angle of any sort, and you can often get past large battles just by having a low profile. However, no one can totally know when they have snucj by the entire battle. By simply toying around with your camera, you have a good 15-45 degrees of viewable area around the corner, meaning you know if there happens to be a droideka standing around the corner. When in doubt, always use this ability, as it has saved my own life a great many times. Unfortunately, this is impossible to use in vehicles or any stationary combat implement.

Either way, this sort of cover can help, especially from such things as splash damage and turrent fire if they can't get around the obstruction that is saving your character's life.

Don't Abandon It For Too Long, Or It Won't Come Back

Once or twice you may want to set down your ship for a moment on a map of your choosing, perhaps to make a few sniping shots or to try and take a base.

Other then repairing your ship, and actions like this can and will lead to your ship taking a lot of damage and eventually exploding. Be prepared for the consequences.

Only land vehicles can get away with not taking damage, and only air units do take damage. Have fun and enjoy the rest of the game!

Easy Win on CLOUD CITY PLATFORMS

Become a Jet Trooper on the game and get into a LAAT Gunship. Take out the anti-aircraft guns at the droid base then land in the alcove where the turret was. There's an area near the stairs that looks like a door, walk into it and you will be able to safely capture the command post.

Glitch on Hoth

First be the Rebels on planet Hoth. Start out at Echo Base run and get on a Taun-Taun. Go back into Echo Base and turn right where you'll see a couple of boxes with a wall behind them. Walk up to the wall and you're able to run through the wall (stay on the Taun-Taun while doing this).

Mr. Walker Can't Aim Down?

Remember that the AT-ST, AT-AT and the AT-TE can't aim down, so if you want to do some damage, be sure to take the safe, long way, circle around it and get underneath.

You can do a fair bit of damage, depending on which unit you are playing as.

Pistol and Close Up Uses

The Pistol has a great many uses other than just being a weaker version of the rifle, and learning how to use it correctly can give you a huge advantage.

For example, with heavy units such as the Vangaurd, you are armed with one of the most powerful weapons available in this game. Yes, that's right, one of the most powerful weapons, but also one of the most useless against any form of troop combat, save for perhaps Droidekas. No matter how fast you think you are reloading, or whether or not that load will be finished, you might miss, or, more than likely, you won't finish before they attack. So switch over when you first sense danger, as this goes for sniper's as well -- the weapon has a high fire rate and is deadly if it hits the head, and you can always reload later. You can't as easily reload another life and get back into position... or repair the new stat hole.

If you need rapid fire, and can't afford to wait for anything to load, switch over and finish the job with the pistol. Better the enemy dead and spending a second or two reloading your rifle then losing half your health and having a half empty clip. Plus, later on the pistol can also be used for sniping and other similar purposed whenever needed, and is much stronger as well, making it a deadly force for whatever you have left to do in the game.

Finally, an unlimited amount of power. You can last the rest of the game with it... so when holding a CP or something, just switch over to it and find an ammo droid later. This CP is more important now! Happy hunting!

Strafing: Extra Advantage

Although many a game that involve sniping and shooting have strafing, the auto-lock feature available (although defnitely not exclusive) on this game (which targets units for you) has an unfortunate quirk in it that you can use to your advantage.

One of the things you may have noticed while strafing in the game or aiming for a strafing opponent in the game is the near impossibility of hitting said target without manipulating the area the weapon is aiming for, which many people now do subconciously. The CPU, however, does not. If ever caught in a firefight with one or multiple enemies, always strafe to the maximum potential. The CPU will continue to miss for the most part and you can continue your slaugfhter unhindered.

A note, though: this style of gameplay becomes ineffectual if opponent comes within point blank (very close) range, so it should be used while at a moderate distance.

The 'Duck Blind' - Killing Mass Amounts of Enemies

However, the title depends on which CP they choose.

This tip is more for those of you who don't like charging about looking for enemies where they are not. A simple way for killing the Empire on Hoth and the Republic on Geonosis follows, and it's all, once again, in those strategic machines, the walkers.

The one place that many troops will use is the walker, especially if they are limited in the amount of CPs they have, the walker CP is closest to some sort of target or they notice that your in the area. This all works for you, as you can instantly kill them just by hanging around the legs of it.

So the next time you want to go in and seriously cut down those numbers, wait for the walkers to come in, and run for the legs! Who knows how many you'll kill.

Note: Recommended that you at least take over a command post first to narrow the choice of CPs where they can reappear from.

When Will This End!?

One thing noticeable to all is that even when the enemy is down to 30 units, they still seem to be coming full force.

This is because units will continue to reappear until you are down to about 20 or so men. This includes Jedis.

However, if you respawn, you will appear as long as there will still be one on the screen. However, when you die in the final twenty, then even if there is another guy on the field and you are killed, then that one goes down to zero.

Jub Jub

Type in a profile as "Jub Jub" make sure you have capital Js and the space in the middle. Every character except the droideka has the ewok skeleton and a weird flat head.
The rebel pilot has no head and there is an empty helmet hovering above the body that you can shoot for a head shot.
