I have noticed that a lot of people are getting stuck at this particular spot in the game so allow me to allieveiate this problem.

First ensure you have a large supply of frag grenades, second you know that door you go through to get into the rancor arena? well stop just inside the door so that your party members are still inside that corridor. next switch to solo mode. once that's done walk along the left side of the wall and a couple of steps to the right of it. once you're in range throw one grenade only. once it explodes, if the rancor doesn't come after you stay where you are and start lobbing frag grenades. if he does come after you, run back to where you're party members are and that will cause the rancor to go back to where he was. wait until he gets back to his starting spot and then try again. keep trying until you find a spot where you can stand and throw grenades and he won't chace after you. it should take about 10-15 grenades all together to kill him, but trust me it's the only way to really get past him. I tried everything else, except for cheating. I don't believe in cheating. JediJosh80

P.S.> MAKE SURE YOU SAVE JUST BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS!!! IT WILL SAVE YOU LOTS OF GRIEF!!!

If you've got any kind of Stealth capability...

Walk out to the mound of corpses in the middle. Put a Frag Grenade in the item cache there. Then put one of the Phermone scent container things (whatever it is you pick up from the severed arm) into the item cache.

Sit back, watch fireworks.

This really belongs in the Padawan Lounge Forum but since its here:

I did it without killing the beast. First, I put Mission in stealth mode. I got passed the Rancor and opened the door. I didn't engage the guards. I headed back towards the Rancor and engaged with sniper shots. This of course does nothing to it but distracts the beast. That allowed me to get the others by. This is not a glitch because if not done right the Rancor will just pick them off. Once the rest of the party got passed it, we all took care of the guards and proceeded with the quest.

Hi guys, new here, just got game this weekend....

...anyways, I beat the Rancor on my second try....like this:

I figured, he is quite large, so he can't fit into the walkway leading to his "room" right? So i moved out a bit and granaded him (forgot which grenade, but it worked) and made him follow me to the doorway where I entered his area....had my party climb up a bit and he stopped at the doorway, unable to enter because of his size. I proceeded to shell him with grenades, including the poison ones I had on me, one of them sickened him and gradually took him down to zero...took a few grenades, I was shooting him too, but that didn't seem to do much at all.

When he died, he was in the doorway and we wre unable to get through, but the game allows you to "blast" his corpse until you "kill" it, then it disappears....

hope this helps...

this game is quite awesome, by the way. :cool:

I did this too, but I jumped back and forth from my base to the rancor location to stock-up on frag grenades.
