Its in the manual, but i can never get it to work, nor have i seen the ai use it. Anyone seen it or used it. Or was it removed?

It must have been removed, I have been trying to do it over and over with no luck.

Too bad, because I would have liked to perform that move on baddies :D

I was hilt bashed once on a Siege server. I doubt it was on purpose though. The Sith scumbag was on a swoop bike at the time. :D

You have to be in saberstaff's alternate stance (i.e. single-blade) to use it, I believe. Maybe that's your problem?

Yep. Agreed. I think pretty much everything in the manual is in the game.

I just tried it, didn't work. I turned off saber throw, didn't work. Tried a variety of distances, didn't work. Finally I tried it with both blades and I merely kicked. I didn't notice it in the in-game move list, I'll check it again.

I really would like to know how to pull this move off.

Yeah, I saw that in the manual as well. Apparently it was an alternate hit animation for a staff kick when the enemy was directly in front of you.

According to ChangKhan (Mike Gummelt) he thinks it was turned off due to bugginess.

That's from page 20 of the US JA game manual.

Sorry for that I sound dumb, but what do you do when you hilt bash? Is it some kinda punch?

Im pretty sure it is just a mistype in the manual.

I do a move with the double saber where you thrust forward quickly with the saber stright (rather then swinging around) in a horizontal line. Just like the idle hold.

When used again enemies it is quicker then a kick but doesnt knock anyone down.

The move is Mouse 2 + S (default)

i dont remember if it only works with an enemy in front of you or not right now but this does do a kinda jab with the saber hilt.

No, one of the Raven guys said it was removed from MP because of lag issues. He didn't comment on SP tho.

It's still there, all you need to do is while walking backwards press the alternate fire with both blades active:

That's a backwards kick, not bash.

OKay yeah just checked. Although the model shows you thrusting out the handle infront of you it does no damage.

Teach me to post without double checking myself lol
