* * * Rogue Squadron - A FAQ * * *
Author: marshmallow (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Yes! My parents felt sorry for me and let me RENT a game. Well, if you
haven't figured it out by now, that game is Rogue Squadron (NOT "Rouge
Squadron." Rouge is a makeup...). Difficult, long, awesome graphics,
spectacular music, lots 'o voice (50 minutes), tons of secrets...Yum!

Note: The most updated version can ALWAYS be found at www.gamefaqs.com.
Now, most other sites also have the most updated version, but if you're
going to ask a question, be 100% sure you're not viewing a way outdated
version. In other words - if you're not sure, check out Gamefaqs. All
other two dozen or so of my FAQs can also be found there. Enjoy! Or
2nd Note: This FAQ will work for both the N64 and PC versions, as far as
Damage Indicator - In the upper left hand of your screen is a small icon
of your ship, this is your damage indicator. If your vehicle is in
perfect condition it will be green. As you get hit, it will turn to
yellow, then orange, red, then when you're about to be killed, flashing
Cross Hairs - Naturally, this is what you use to aim with. =) To get a
perfect shot, align the smaller circle so your target is right inside of
it. Fire at will!
Radar - In the upper right hand corner of your screen is the radar,
which works a lot like the PC Star Wars Series. You are the green square
in the middle, friendly craft are green dots, and enemy craft are the
red dots. Sometimes there will be blue dots, these are neutral. Each
level is very, very large, so it's easy to get lost. Well, see the large
pie shape that is flashing orange? Fly to it (get it in the 12 'o clock
position...that is, at the very top of the radar) and it will get
larger, then disappear when you're over it...This is where you must
complete your objectives!
You start each mission with three ships. Die and you will be returned
'near' where you were destroyed. If you lose all of your ships you get a
game over and go back to the level select screen. You will automatically
lose a life when you fail a mission, as well.
Although there are several different control styles, there are "buttons"
that guide you along. i.e. "Shot Button" means to shoot...duh! Anyways,
here are a few buttons that you should know about:
Boost - Pressing this will make your craft accelerate, allowing you to
speed away from danger or get to a critical situation faster, or catch
up to enemy craft. Whatever it may be, remember to hold this button for
maximum benifit. Though, be careful, you'll go into turns a lot
wider...but of course, that can be a plus in certain situations.
Brake - This will, naturally, stop your craft. Well, ok, not totally
stop, you'll still be moving, but not very fast. This is VERY useful.
Especially if there are people behind you, or you're trying to kill
something in front of you.
Secondary Weapon - Hitting this will shoot your secondary weapon,
whatever it may be.
Special Button - Some craft have special moves.
Roll - With this you can...roll =)
2) Ships & Weapons
Named for it's uniquly shaped wings when deployed, the X-Wing is the
main vehicle used by the Rebellion. During normal flight the wings
(read: They are called S-Foils) are usually closed, causung the craft to
be more aerodynamic, making it go much faster. You go even faster, since
when they open your Rocket Engines will fire 100%, making it VERY useful
for catching up to the opposition. However, during this mode you can not
fire any weapons. To open them, use the Special Button. When opend, you
can fire to your heart's content. With it's four laser cannons (you can
fire all four at once, three at once, two at once, or one, depending on
when you use the Firing Mode Button) you can easily shred through
oppenents, plus you can carry a small payload of rockets! It's shields
are average at best, but it more than makes up for that in it's great
This is the fastest ship in the entire fleet! The A-Wing can easily out-
run a Tie Intercepter, turn on a dime, and is very easy to handle.
However, what the A-Wing wins in speed it loses in shields. Do not count
on shields, instead use it's speed to dodge laser fire and other
projectiles. It also has twin lasers, they are quite powerful, but no
where near the calibar of the X-Wings'. The A-Wing gets it's name
because it looks like a capital "A" from a distance. Using a boost, you
can outrun a Missile with this!
Not a true spacecraft, the Snow Speeder was built for ground based
missions, and it passes with flying colors. It can hug the ground quite
nicely, since it has special engines that fire when it gets a few feet
off the ground, allowing it to go very low. It has two large lasers
mounted at the front, and a tow-cable at the back, for the second
gunner. The tow-cable's main function is to defeat the feared AT-AT
Walkers, which the Empire loves to deploy alongside it's fighters.
One of the most useful crafts for the Rebellion, the Y-Wing was named
for the fact that is looks like a giant Y. This baby can do just about
anything...It can disable ships with its twin ion cannons, then other
craft can come in and take it away. It has another set of lasers, which
are very potent. A large portion of the space is used for it's gigantic
payloud of missiles, bombs, and torpedos, making it famed for bombing
missions. As for shields, well, it's safer to be in this than anything
else! It's armor is quite strong, and will protect you from just about
anything, which is good, since you won't be going anywhere fast (like
the game said about it) :)
A newbie to the Rebel Force, the V-Wing is named that because...Yeah,
because it's shaped like a V. It's rockets are state-of-the-art, and a
special feature will allow you to supply an incredible amount of power
to it, which will allow you to rocket out of an area in seconds. During
this time it is faster than the A-Wing! This is great, since it carries
very little shields. That said, it is very easy to handle, highly
manueverable, and nimble. It has two laser cannons, and you can fire
them rapidly, which is great for ground based targets. However, Rapid
Fire Mode will quickly burn out the entire gun if used for too long. Use
* - R2D2 is in this and will help you by slowly replenishing your
Proton Torpedo - Fast and light, the Proton Torpedo will take out just
about any craft. Very powerful, and there is even a version that will
Concussion Missile - Weaker than the Proton Torpedo, this missile is
very fast, but does not cause a great deal of damage. Try to fire a
barrage of them at larger targets, like tanks.
Cluster Missile - When fired, it will open up and five smaller rockets
will burst from it's shell and spray everywhere. Chances of hitting your
foe are increased, but it's not exactly the most powerful weapon.
Bombs - Only used in the Y-Wing, these powerful projectiles will fall to
the ground and cause a devastating explosion. Very powerful! If you drop
these at a low alititude, chances are you'll kill yourself!
C H A P T E R I
Stage 1 - Ambush at Mos Eisley.
It seems the Empire has it's eyes set on destroying Mos Eisley on Luke
Skywalker's (that is you, BTW) home planet, Tatooine. Let's see what
Default Craft: X-Wing with 6 Proton Torpedos
Guide: This is the first stage so naturally, it's not very difficult. In
fact, you'll probably beat this on your first try! Really simple stuff
here...There are a lot of Probe Droids floating around the area,
shooting at houses and such. Go blow 'em up! After they are all
destroyed a cinema will show some Tie Bombers heading towards Mos
Eisley! Well, get over there! There are only about four or five, and
their patterns are predicable. Then watch the cinema, then it's on to
the next level...
Stage 2 - Rendezvous On Barkesh
The Rebellion is in dire need of supplies, and these cargo carrying
machines are here to the rescue! Problem is, the path is through an
Impirial Zone. There's bound to be trouble, so it's your job to make
sure they make it across intact.
Default Craft: X-Wing with 6 Proton Torpedos
Guide: When you first appear there will be a fleet of Probe Droids in
front of you, be sure to take these out. Follow the trail of cargo
vehicles (all 20 or so of them) to another pair, after which the
vehicles will start moving along their way. Along the path will be many
AT-STs, Tie Bombers, and Tie Fighters. Be sure to take out the Bombers
first, as they will go straight for your craft! The Ties will go after
you, so be careful. The AT-STs are stationary, for some reason or
another, and will open fire on anything on the Rebellion side. They are
quite strong, so I advise missiles. Explore the entire level when
nothing is happening, as there are several Cannons on the hills that can
be easily missed. Rocket back to the convoy by closing your S-Foils. At
the end of the mission the Rebellion will get their supplies. Hooray!
Stage 3 - The Search for the Nonnah
Do'h! A top secret craft breached into an Imperial Base and has stolen
several pieces of information and weapons for us. Now it has crashed in
this mucky planet. Well, go rescue it before the Empire comes
here...which should be soon.
Default Craft: A-Wing with 8 Concussion Missiles
Guide: There are Probe Droids, Tie Fights, and Bombers EVERYWHERE!
Destroy as many Bombers as you can, it'll make your job later MUCH
easier. Scan the landscape, particulary near the river, since that's
where it is. If you don't find it first, one of your wingmen will, then
it will appear on your map and you can get to it. A Rebel Shuttle will
come in and dock with it, rescueing all supplies and soliders. Oh-
oh...An Imperial Shuttle has landed on the shore and is deploying AT-
STs, Tanks, and Bombers! Destroy them ALL! After that the Shuttle will
remain on the beach, doing nothing. Now, you see the large hill in front
of the downed craft, out in the water? Bombers will start coming in from
that side; so circle 'round and be ready, you can't let them get near
the Nonnah! After a few minutes the Shuttle will lift off the Nonnah,
ready to leave. Not before about a dozen Intercepters and Bombers come
out from behind! If you're lucky, you should be able to destroy them all
before they damage the Shuttle too much. If not, it's Game Over for you!
Stage 4 - Defection at Corellia
Imperial Officer Crix Madine wants to join our side, but it seems the
Empire is sending large amounts of ships, AT-AT Walkers, and Bombers to
stop him. Save Corellia from destruction, or countless numbers of
innocent lives will be lost!
Default Craft: Snow Speeder
Guide: Follow your wingmen to a crater, destroy all the Probe Droids.
Now Bombers will start flooding into the city! Go over there and kick
their metallic rear ends. After they're all gone, Mr. Madine is stuck
inside of a building which is under heavy fire. Go over there and save
his hide, it's not too hard. Then Han Solo and Chewbacca come in to save
the day from more Bombers, yah! They'll be here the entire mission,
helping you out. Now Bombers will come from every which way,
Waveskimmers will hit the beach, Ties will come, and AT-AT walkers will
be deployed! The first one is right behind the giant building...it's
hard to miss, being 500 feet tall and everything. Carefully wrap the Tow
Cable around it, then it will fall and be destroyed. This does take some
practice, though. After that some AT-STs will be let loose near the
other part of the city, as will another AT-AT walker. Finish them off,
then take care of ALL the Tie Bombers in the area. Chewbacca will ask
for Shuttles to come in and rescue the townspeople, then they will. But
now more Bombers are coming in, as well are some Tie Fighters! Fend them
off with a big stick of lasers, then the Shuttle will carry everyone
away to safety...
Stage 5 - Liberation of Gerrad V
Stop the awful govenor from fleeing the city with valueable treasure
that he STOLE from it. The Empire is also making a little visit.
Default Craft: X-Wing with 8 Concussion Missiles
Guide: Lay off the floating ships in mid-air, these are the Y-Wings'
targets. You are flying escort. To defend them, destroy the guns and
Ties flying all around, and it's easy to miss the little AT-PTs, isn't
it? After awhile the yachts in this city will be destroyed, then we will
move on to the next. This town has the BIG Gun. It's gigantic...save
your missiles for it. There are also several Missile Turrets on the
edges of the desert, so if you're wondering where the missiles are
coming from... :) After a bit of this a cinema will play out. Very
interesting indeed! The leader of the 128th Tie Intercepter Squad (the
best of the best) will give you secret plans to a Moon Base in...
Stage 6 - The Jade Moon
With the help of Lt. Kasan, we have found this secret base on the moon.
General Madine will lead the ground assult, but the installation is
blocked off by a shield.
Default Craft: X-Wing with 6 Advanced Proton Torpedos
Guide: Destroy all the AT-PTs you can, since they'll annoy you later if
you don't. Keep going forward and you'll find several Laser Turrets,
destroy them all and clear out the area. Turn left to find a field of
Missile Turrets, quickly destroy these before they kill everyone,
including you! Using your radar, make your way through the canyon,
you'll soon find yourself at the Shield Generator! Defeat all the
nasties there, then shoot eveything you have at it (it's the long worm
thing that looks like a bunch of gears connected together). When it's
gone for good the shield will disappear, allowing General Madine to
quickly go in and gather supplies, then leave. However, they will be
bombed by Bombers and Tie Interceptors! You HAVE to kill them all! The
Bombers are easy enough, but the Interceptors are a different story
entirely. Hold down the Rocket Button and shoot at them the best you
Stage 7 - Imperial Contsruction Yards
Lt. Kasan's information is again proving useful, now we know the
location of the main factory that manufactures Imperial Walkers!
Default Craft: Snow Speeder
Guide: There's a lot of stuff to blow up here, and a lot of AT-ATs to
trip...but it's not necessary. Just follow my directions. First you have
to go through a canyon with your wingmates, shooting at Scanners. If
they detect you, it's a mission failure. Here's the perfect way to get
past this: Simply hold your break most of the time! Let your wingman do
all the work! =)
Ok, after the canyon turn to your left and you'll find the AT-AT
factory. Ignore the lasers, just get behind them all and them blow up
all the large buildings. Now return to the entrance of the canyon and
keep going, you'll find a Shuttle taking off from a platform. Behind it
is a Missile Turret, destroy this and go into the path behind it, it's a
side route that will let you avoid a lot of dangers. When you exit
you'll be at the AT-ST Factory. Simply blow everything up, including the
Laser and Missile Turrets since they can quickly kill you. This stage
takes a lot of practice, it's all about skill. There are so many ships,
it's easy to get disorientated and get killed. Keep at it!
Stage 8 - Assault on Kile II
The Empire is again clutching another helpless planet in it's iron fist.
Go in and clean the place out! Bwahaha!
Default Craft: Y-Wing with 20 Bombs
Guide: Go through the canyons, good thing you're in your Y-Wing...this
place is CRAWLING with Ties! Use your Rocket Button constantly to get
out of here. When you get to a place with four satellite dishes, bomb it
into the ground. Then cinema will show some boxes nearby, go destroy
them with lasers, save your bombs. Now you have to go to an Airport-like
place. Bomb it all! Kill all the Laser & Missile Turrets on the outside,
too (you have to). After all of this, it's over. You might die a few
Stage 9 - Rescue on Kessel
Find Wedge, who was captured at the end of the last mission.
Default Vehicle: X-Wing fitted with one Ion Cannon
Guide: Go forward and take out any Missile Turrets you can! They're
EVERYWHERE! Ignore the Laser Turrets, since they don't really pose a
threat. After a bit you should see the Hover Train. Shoot your Ion
Cannons at it (same as firing a Missile) and it will start to shoot out
electricity. The Train is divided into sections, so you have to disable
EACH INDIVIDUAL piece before the entire thing will stop. This is very
difficult since the Train Itself is armed with Missile and Laser
Turrets. After the Train is stopped a Shuttle will come in and pick him
up and put him in his X-Wing!
Stage 10 - Prisons of Kessel
Help free other Rebellion Prisoners from the planet before they are
Default Craft: X-Wing with 6 Advanced Proton Torpedos
Guide: Ooh! This level is just plain mean. You have to protect a Shuttle
as it picks up prisoners at four different prisons. Sounds easy...But
there are tons of Ties, Half a Dozen Walkers, and a lot of Laser
Turrets, plus one Rocket Turret. First, turn around and just speed ahead
(Close S-Foils when I say "speed ahead", it's faster than the Rocket
Boost) to the first place, the Shuttle will be right behind you. Quickly
take out the four Laser Turrets and any ties that even dare to enter the
sector. If you do not destroy the Laser Turrets before the Shuttle
lands, they will shoot at it and damage it a lot. After it lands you
have to go destroy the Shield Generator, it's not far away (check
radar). On the way there, try to destroy as many Laser Turrets as you
can, but don't go out of your way. Keep going, brake, and fire lasers at
the Shield Generator. If it's not destroyed by the time you get there,
use a Rocket, that will do it. Now speed up and return to the Shuttle,
some 'buddies' will be waiting.
The best way to destroy the different Ties is to use the Rocket Button,
especially on the Intercepters. Take them out QUICKLY! They will fire at
the Shuttle. After they have the prisoners the Shuttle will lift and go
to the next place. You pretty much have to repeat the same process,
except this time you have to follow the Shuttle a bit so you don't get
lost. Again, shoot the Laser Turrets and Ties. This time, however, a
single AT-ST Walker will enter the area. Kill him with LASERS! Save your
Torpedos, you'll need them later. Ok, after this you'll go to the next
prison. Same thing, except with TWO AT-ST Walkers! You should have about
five rockets...I say fire one at each then finish them off with lasers.
However, do not focus on them! If you do the Ties will quickly destroy
the Shuttle, which is helpless on the ground. In the final prison there
will be a long line of AT-ST Walkers, good thing they're far away. You
should still destroy them, however, with your remaining Torpedos (if you
don't they'll form a circle around the Shuttle and blow it to
smithereens). Now, when the Shuttle lifts from the last prison it will
be badly damaged, so make sure NOTHING is following it! Congratulations,
you just finished one of the most draining missions in the game!
C H A P T E R I I I
Stage 11 - Battle Above Taloraan
Destroy the Imperial canisters of Tibanna Gas, but be careful not to
harm the civilain operations there!
Default Craft: A-Wing with 8 Advanced Missiles
Guide: This level is pretty simple...Just destroy all the canisters on
the air-platforms. Well, all the cans that have a little star on them.
Ignore the ones with a blue stripe, these are civilain...things...Just
don't shoot those =) After a few platforms there will be Guns attached
to the platform. Just use your Missiles if you're panicky, but a few
laser shots is all it takes. At the very end a huge starship will come
up from under you. Ignore it and fly underneathe to find another
platform...with quad Missile Launchers! This is a good time to use those
Missiles of yours, since lasers are too slow. After that the level is
Stage 12 - Escape from Fest
During your last mission a team of Rebellions snuck into this top secret
base and stole a squadron of AT-PTs. Unfortunately, their escape has
been hindered...go save 'em!
Default Craft: Snowspeeder
Guide: Oh yes, this is my favorite level! Nice and snowy, like Hoth. I'm
sure it'll be yours, too. First off, in this level you are REALLY
pressured for time. If you screw up it usually means you'll fail your
mission. Here's the most efficient way to do it...
Rocket forward and destroy the first AT-AT Walker with your Tow Cable,
then get away. See those Laser Turrets on the ridge? Destroy them all,
then turn left to find a trio of AT-PTs, these are on your side! But
they won't be for long, there's another AT-AT Walker behind them.
Quickly destroy it before it has a chance to shoot at any of the AT-PTs.
Your wingmen are working on the wall, but it would be a good idea to
shoot at it a bit while you pass it. After passing it you'll notice
another AT-AT Walker. Go past this and defeat the two Turbo Lasers
behind it, now go kill the AT-AT Walker. By now the wall has been
destroyed by your wingmen and they're in the path. You don't have time
to breath yet!
Dozens of Tank Droids will be let out. Although they pose little threat
to the AT-PTs (it's the other way around!) it's usually a good idea to
destroy them...just in case. Now a squadron of Tie Bombers will be
deployed from the base. You know, the one with the shield around it.
Quickly destroy these! Just ONE Bomber could destroy the entire fleet of
AT-PTs. After that Bombers will come from all over the place. When the
AT-PTs board the shuttle you can sigh in relief...but there's still more
Go destroy the Shield Generator (it's near the last AT-AT you killed)
and then go to the building and blow it up! Hooray!
Stage 13 - Blockade on Chandrila
Moff Seerdon has decided to hold this peaceful city hostage to make the
Rebellion pay for what it did in Fest.
Default Craft: X-Wing with 6 Advanced Proton Torpedos
Guide: Nice music at the beginning! :) First you have to protect a Hover
Train from Tie Intercepters, Bombers, and Fighters. Easy enough!
Seriously, this is nothing new. After the Train is safe you'll have to
go protect some buildings...Again, shouldn't be a problem. Then some
Shuttles will land to pick up some people, then four AT-STs will be
deployed right next to them. This is the best time to use those Advanced
Proton Torpedos! Then you get to shoot down some more Ties, then it's
Stage 14 - Raid on Sullust
In retalation to the raid on Chandrila, the Rebellion is doing the same,
except on a base inside of a volcano.
Default Craft: Y-Wing with 20 Bombs
Guide: This level is very large, but the first thing you probably notice
is how quickly you die. 20 seconds at the most...then you discover that
there are Missile Turrets all over the place. Solution? Take out the
Missile Turrets! Unfortuantely, that's easier said than done. What I
always do is simply go around the permiter of the level, then when I
spot a Turret, I get over it and drop a Bomb! You might think there are
500 Missile Turrets, since you hear the little "wheewhee!" Sound every
.1 seconds (that sound only happens when a missile is locked onto you).
In reality, there is only about six or so, they fire two at once,
constantly. Even I die at least once when doing this...
Ok, now it's time to start doing something towards beating the level!
See those little machines that resemble the Plungers in Iggy's Reckin'
Balls? Bomb 'em! Bomb 'em all! If you run out of Bombs you're screwed,
since that's the only way to destroy them. When they are all gone the
shield surrounding the large machine in the center will disappear. And
what a machine it is! It's HUGE! Get right up at the top and wait
awhile...Ties will come. You have to defeat them...in a Y-Wing! I know,
it sounds ludicrus, but it's not that difficult, since the Ties in this
level seem to be a little tipsy (if you know what I mean). Now, see
those white things at the top? Not the giant lights, the other white
things. Shoot those! When they're all gone thelevel is done!
Stage 15 - Moff Seerdon's Revenge
NO! That idiot Moff Seerdon has captured our local Bacta supplies! Get
in there, save our supplies, and kill that commie! :)
Default Craft: X-Wing with 6 Proton Torpedos
NOTE: This level is much easier with the Seeker Torpedos [See "Secrets"
Section]. I suggest you go get these before coming to this level. The
Extra Shield will also do quite nicely...
Time's a wastin' and you don't have very much of it! Your first goal
should be to take out the half-dozen or so Missile Turrets around here.
Remember, when your S-Foils are locked you CAN outrun Missiles, so use
this when you hear the little "wheewhee!" sound. Next, take out all the
Ties! After doing this for awhile you will notice someone is shooting
you from behind. If you slow down, they slow down. If you turn right,
they turn left and shoot you point blank. They follow you EVERYWHERE!
Here's how to take him out - Lock your S-Foils are go to the other side
of the level. Take out your Seekers, turn around, and watch the radar
for a rapidly moving red dot. When you see him, get a lock, and FIRE!
He'll be killed the second the Torpedo hits him, which is a guranteed
hit. Now another one will come. Do it again. A third will come, take
care of him as well. Now you can do whatever you want in relative
Unless you're on the verge of dieing and you're on your second life,
save your Seeker Torpedos for later use. Now you have to destroy all of
the Ties, this is actually pretty easy. The AT-STs go next, these are
also prety simple. Then the Laser Turrets go, then the little boxes.
After all of this, Moff Seerdon will come down in his Shuttle. Get ready
This Shuttle is FAST! Way faster than your X-Wing, but it still turns
enough that you can catch up to it. When he has a clear shot of you he
will lock on and fire a Torpedo, when you hear that sound ("boosh", when
he fires it) lock your S-Foils and get out of there, you WILL be able to
get away. However, you will not hear a "wheewhee" sound if you are real
close, so listen for the "boosh." His lasers don't come any where near
you, so that shouldn't be a problem. If you have at least five Seeker
Torpedos, this guy will be EASY! Just aim, lock, and fire! That should
do it. However, if you only have lasers this will border on the
impossible. Just get in close, hit the brakes, look around, and attempt
to shoot lasers. This will take a LONG time, however.
Oh, and if you're damaged badly, lock your S-Foils and fly around the
level until your energy gets back into the green (That R2 unit is
Stage 16 - The Battle of Calamari
The World Devastaters are coming, the World Devastaters are coming!! Go
save the planet Mon Calamari, they are our main supplier of Battle
Default Craft: V-Wing with 6 Cluster Missiles
Guide: To destroy the World Devastaters you'll first have to knock out
their shield. This can be done by destroying their SHield Generator,
which is located at the top, it looks like a little Ball on some towers.
Then you have to take out their legs...This is pretty easy, just shoot
Missiles/Lasers at the little rockets. HOWEVER! You must be careful not
to be under it when it falls, you have to be careful of the Rockets it
shoots, and it's vcauum at the back. Oh, exercise caution when near it,
even when it's down, there are A LOT of guns on these things.
Then you have to save a city from Tie Intercepters. It sounds easy, but
it's actually very hard...unless you have Seeker Missiles :) You do this
sequence three times, then it's over! WOOHOO! GAME OVER BABY! Well,
there are secret missions...but I haven't gotten to them yet :)
Short for "All Terrain Armored Transport." This four legged behemoth
strikes fear into the souls of fighters everywhere, as it's armor is
imprenatrable to everything short of a nuclear blast. This beast has two
strong guns under it's chin and two weaker ones to the side of it's
head. The best way to take this thing down is to use the Snow Speeder's
Tow Cable to wrap it's legs up, then it will fall and explode. Woohoo!
Short for "All Terrain Personal Transport." These things are rare, which
is a good thing. They have thick armor, can climb very steep slopes, and
have twin lasers mounted on it's 'face.'
Short for "All Terain Scout Transport." This thing has very, very thick
armor, can move rather quickly, and has a moveable head, which is armed
with twin lasers. Although they are not as powerful as the AT-PT's, they
are still dangerous. Missiles, anyone?
These are usually the first wave of an attack, as they scout the area
and look for things of interest to the Empire. They are very numerous,
being un-manned and very cheap. It can float in mid-air and move
quickly, it will fire it's weak laser at the sign of danger (or the
Rebels...). One shot should put it down for good.
Since it devotes an un-imaginable 2/3 of it's power soley to it's
shields, this thing is very hard to destroy. It can carry troops,
weapons, and other things of importance. They are often dressed up and
used as escorts for people of importance.
Although slow, their aim is unpeccable.
The grunt of the Imperial Force, the Tie Fighter is very manuevarable,
is fast, and it's small profile makes it a difficult target to peg.
However, these come at a steep price, as it has no other weapons besides
it's weak cannons, no hyperdrive, and NO shields! One shot is all it
takes to kill 'em.
Besides it's twin lasers, it almost always has a huge payload of bombs,
concussion missiles, mines, and other annoying projectiles. When they
come, focus ll of your attention on them, as they will destroy the craft
you are trying to protect! They are slow and quite large, so hitting
them shouldn't be very difficult.
The best the Empire has to offer their troops, the Tie Intercepter is
almost as fast as the A-Wing, more manueverable than the X-Wing, has
four cannons, and yes, room for missiles. However, like the other Ties,
it has little shields, so a few hits is all it takes. But it can be
difficult to get a direct hit, since it turns everywhere and is so fast.
These deliver troops to the beach, then fire at flying craft. Annoying,
but nothing deadly.
If you need to knock out a shield of some kind, look for this, a long
string of box like objects. Usually heavily guarded.
If you spot one of these, blow it up! Well, unless it's on your side.
With this, your enemy can call for re-enforcements!
The most common cannon of all, these are mounted on high places and fire
at you. Nothing new here...
This guy should never be underestiminated, as he fires homing missiles
using state-of-the-art aiming software that almost gurantees a direct
hit. Take these out as quickly as possible!
Use the Brake and Rocket Buttons to catch up or get behind your
oppenents. For example, say someone is shooting at you from behind.
Simply hit the brakes and all the sudden they're in front of you! Too
far away to hit? Slam on the Rocket Button and get there within seconds!
If you're having trouble defending your craft this if for you...Don't go
for Tie Fighters and the like! Focus on the Bombers; these are what are
blowing up everything!
The most effective way to attack is to come in a straight line and just
tap the attack button. I know it's tempting to just turn around, but
this isn't as good since your target will just be out of range.
Use your brake to follow your oppenents, this way they'll never be out
of your sight!
If you don't know it by now, the radar is like a clock. When a member
says "Hey! Enemy craft at 11!" look at the radar like you would a clock!
It works...trust me...
When you're trying to grapple a AT-AT Walker with the SNow Speeder, get
directly in front of it, hit the Tow Cable, then use the Rocket Button
to make tight turns around the legs. With practice, AT-AT Walkers won't
look so dangerous! Of course, later you have to do it under enemy fire.
When in doubt, look at your radar for the triangle. If you're still
confused, listen to your wingmates.
Shoot everything that isn't on the Rebellion side! =)
(Robert J.'s Tips)
Cockpit view with cockpit turned off is best for most missions, except
that require tight manuevering or bombing. Behind-the-ship view is
those, in particular for roping AT-ATs
To rope the AT-ATs, mash down the boost button to go faster, and steer
with the brakes. Lighter touch on the joystick helps damp out vertical
movements, which are the main reason for failure.
[Mini-Guide - Ed]
Assault on Kile. Use behind-the-ship view. Fly high, this lets you
incoming flak and missiles much more easily. Just keep jinking
up/down to avoid them and the shots from the TIEs. Ignore the TIEs
just keep jinking.
Take out the communication dishes first. To get to them, just bear left
every fork. You will eventually get to the area with the dishes (to the
and the barracks (to the right). To finish off the dishes, you need to
the missile and gun batteries, the dishes, and the central building, but
long buildings. Missiles and guns first, of course. Stay a bit high
bombing to prevent killing yourself.
You know you've got the dishes when you get the inflight movie (grin).
take out the barracks. Use blasters on this, don't waste bombs. Then,
to the spaceport, go back to to where you entered the dish/barracks
instead of going back the way you came (the right fork) go down the left
and again always bear left. The last left you take is a sharp turn that
to see except on the radar.
When you get to the spaceport run around the perimeter once taking out
batteries, then pound the base. If you run out of bombs, suicide into
and keep on bombing.
Silver is easy to get on this level. The trick is to avoid going after
which just wastes time and lowers your shot percentage. Getting a 70%
percentage isn't all that tough.
Advanced Shield Technology:
Go to "The Jademoon." Fly through the canyon rifts, sooner or later
you'll spot a a building guarded by a Missile Turret. Shoot the building
and a small, yellow object will appear. Collect it! This will add
another color to your Deflector Shields, allowing you to survive under
heavy fire for a lot longer.
Seeker Proton Torpedos:
Go to "Raid On Sullest." One of the bunkers on the far side of your
starting point has this, it's up against a wall. The Seeker Torpedos are
very useful. When you press the Secondary Weapon Button a yellow cursor
will appear, get this over an enemy for a few seconds and it will turn
red. Fire at will! However, you must keep the lock.
Seeker Cluster Missiles:
Go to "Prisons of Kessel." Near the SECOND prison is a ledge with a
Missile Launcher. It's very well hidden, so you may have to search
around. In front of the Turret (still on the ledge) is a building, blow
it up! Now when a Cluster Missile breaks into five smaller missiles,
each missile will automatically target something and go there! Very
useful against multiple oppenents.
Go to the "Imperial Construction Yards." As soon as you get out of the
canyon with the sensor arrays turn right toward the AT-AT. Behind the
walker is a small installment with a bunch of tie-bombers. On the hill
above the platform is a laser turret. Take it out and fly through the
canyon to your left. I try to hug the ground in this canyon because 3
TIE's will be coming at you head on and take can take you out pretty
easy immediately on the other side of the canyon is another platform,
this one has a carrier on it instead of ties. On the hill above is a
missile turret kill it and then the carrier, on the other side of the
platform is a laser turret (he's kinda low) kill him and do a quick U-
turn back to the installment. There is a variety of buildings, the one
to focus on is at the back and to the left corner. (Right below the
former missile turret) The round dome shaped building. Blow it up and
collect your reward!!
John Brady Says:
The explosions of the Smart Bomb are bigger. I tried a normal bomb on
two Turrets, it hit one, then I tried the Smart Bomb (same targets same
place) and the both blew up and I think, THINK it does more damage, but
Go to "Escape from Fest." Fly towards the Lab, but keep going and you'll
find a ledge with Laser Turrets. Blow the building away, behold! Seeker
Missiles for the A-Wing!
Advanced Proton Torpedos:
Go to "Defection at Corellia." After the Millenium Falcon cut-scene,
when going toward the yellow thingy cone on your radar, the first sub-
city you see you should see a yelllow thing. Hold down break, navigate
toward it, and fly through it.

Now, you have to do this quick because there are AT-At's attacking a
city. Make a run over the city so you know exactly where they are.
Approach the city from the opposite side. (moving away from your next
objective) There will be one long, skinny fairly tall building right in
front of it. (ride your brakes the rest of the way) Fly as low as you
can over this building, and dive as soon as you get over the other side.
The torpedo's should be right in front of you. As soon as you get them
(it will be kinda tough because the speeder doesn't dive real well) turn
right hard and fly out of the city to your next objective.
Go to "Battle Above Taloraan" This one is pretty simple, fly through the
level achieving all objectives. When you get to the last platform of
imperial tanks, there will be a city floating in front of it. Carefully
navigate through the buildings on top, behind one of them is an upgrade
of your lasers. Don't worry about destroying buildings this one is in
I didn't have time to verify their locations, but each of the above
levels does have a Bonus, and the location of it is exact, I'm just not
sure what goes where.
