Any walkthroughs, tips or level codes available yet ?

Hoth in Campaign is just impossible... (and I thought Yavin was insane!) :(

haha i had campaign trouble on hoth as well, comlpeted it on sunday.

the trick is to bring the atat as close as you can echo base, and destroy the turrets in the last area wih the heavy trooper before going ahead with the darktrooper.

So the Dark Trooper is the one to place the beacon?... What difference does he make?

I can get the beacon to the trench under the ship but then about 15 or so rebels start chucking grenades on the thing. Impossible me thinks... :)

I only had 20 seconds left, I got with the beacon to the trench, only 15% health left and there was only one reinforment left. I was about 1 meter of the trench, and then, a Bothan Spy showed up from nowhere. Lost the battle :(

No, the beacon has to be placed in the trench. I think that regular TDing should fix the crowded rebel lines, though.

Well, I finished it in the end. I just shot the hell out of the area and cleared most of the Rebel scum before I 'Darktroopered' the beacon in.

Frustrating though that, having finished the Campaign, the levels aren't playable again... :( :(

Haven't reached Hoth yet....right now I am currently at Space Mustafar. So from the sounds of it....Hoth is quite hard to complete. So far in the game, I have been defeated in Naboo, Kashyyyk, and Coruscant.....so Hoth will probably take me a while to defeat.

Well....i have finshed it. Gizor Delso was the part where I got stuck. The first time I played Mustafar, I had 66 kills, and thewhen I defeated it, the second time, I had achieved 60 kills. But, personally so far I think Mustafar and Hoth are the hardest levels to beat. I have yet to beat Hoth. I lost about five minutes into the match.

That's a tough objective to complete. When I get fustarated, I just go play Galactic Conquest or IA. Then, I go back and try to defeat it.

I too can manage to fight my way to the Transport ship at the end of the map. After painstaking effort, manage to get the bomb to the trench, but I can't do anything about the 30 + rebels shooting at the bomb. At best I'll manage to kill half of them off but they always blow up that bomb in under 10 seconds.

I also find it quite frustrating that as soon as you're in the base, you're pretty much on your own to fight 15 rebels at a time, as your battalion is NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.

Coruscant's order 66 is where i'm stuck...just damn near retardedly impossible. Everythings good till either the jedi swarm on the ONE bookcase that I happen to be guarding, and I fail there. Or I get to killing the last remaining jedi masters and magically the hundreds of jedi that spawn in just rape me and I end up dying so much trying to kill him that I run out of reinforcements and die...

Pissing me off, and there's no damn trainer or anything yet..sigh

Jennaida
11-04-2005, 10:05 AM
That's not it entirely, Sobek. It's also a matter of how the AI works. The "improved" AI simply looks at a player tag on anyone who fired on it. Consider this:

If you and another ally are shooting at an enemy AI, it will automatically fire upon you. To the exclusion of anything else. Even if you're at the very edge of blaster range, and the other friendly (or MULTIPLE other friendlies!) basically has their blaster rifle up the enemy's ass.

I've had enemies get easily blasted because I fired on them from the edge of range like that, so they started shooting at me. Then a bot right in their face shot them, while they were busy shooting my way.

Which aggarvates me slightly, since I bought this game to do the shooting. And the AI method pushes up the learning curve for people who aren't ubershots. (They have improved the AI's ability to hit a target, in combination with the new "hyped up monkey on crack" running speeds.) "Star Wars" and "steep single player learning curve" should be exclusive terms, casual fans want something they can set down to 'easy' (not 'elite', not 'normal', but /EASY/ which isn't friggin included), that they can win, to enjoy the plotline a little more instead of having fantasies of creative ways to execute Pandemic/LucasArts employees, for having to repeat the same mission 50 times.

EI 9373

That's just it. The game is great - no doubt about that - but is it enjoyable? I've found that many levels have only one way to complete the mission (and it could take you 25 attempts to find it). The tactician's amongst us (and those of us who like to 'take-in the scenery' a bit have been let down badly by this release.

Jennaida
11-04-2005, 01:09 PM
No disagreement here. It also might be nice if campaign missions had /some/ limits to the number of enemy troops. I just tried Mustafar again. I wound up the only one left during the first segment, after all the shooting got done. But I holed up in that briefing room with a medic droid and an ammo droid. I was picking off dozens and dozens of troops, but lost becasue the enemy is 'infinite' and can keep coming.

Commander Obi-Wan
11-04-2005, 07:55 PM
Well...I did defeat Hoth......finished with 85 kills(mostly from Darth Vader) and 10 deaths...I was tough but I thought Mustafar much tougher.

Well...guess what!?

As of about 2 minutes ago (the amount of time it took me to get downstairs to the computer; and log on....I defeated Hoth!!!

You know what really helps?

Being Darth Vader, and having a Lightsaber!!!

So, just STAY in the trench. (the Rebels only come in the trench from the ONE direction -- once your guys arrive to give you a little bit of back up NEAR the trench.

I was glad that I already knew what to do (from reading on this forum) before I played it...That way, I already knew that 'Oh...I need to place that sensor! --Oh! It goes in the trench!' --I already knew that...so that was nice

----------------

If you'll excuse (excoose-lol) me, I'm going to go play some Instant Action (OR Galactic Conquest --almost definantely Instant Action, though! *heehee*)

See ya, s00n! :)

The snows so bright I can barely see..

Oh good, it's not just my computer. The ground on Hoth is blindingly white, which is annoying. Also, on Naboo, the ground is completely black in most places.

I haven't gotten there in ROTE yet, though. I'm on Prison Escape now. (I got to the end and had to blow up the transport, but didn't do it fast enough, and apparently they "got away" even though I'm still standing right next to the firmly landed transport, fighting the firmly landed rebels.)
I'm surprised people are having trouble with Mustafar. I never would have guessed that it would be a problem level for people, because it seemed as easy as any of the not-that-difficult missions. I didn't have too much trouble on Coruscant, either, but I came pretty close to losing on the Library part. I thought I was alright then suddenly realized that there was only one bookcase left. Luckily, no more Jedi showed up after that.


Jennaida- I've noticed that about the AI, and it really pisses me off. It's retarded that they always specifically target the player. No matter how many better targets are right in front of them, firing at them. It's totally unrealistic and is so frustrating. Especially when my bot freinds don't even kill the guy who is now firing at me.
Also, I've noticed that it isn't even when you fire on them. I swear there are times when I've just started lining someone up in my crosshairs from a distance and they spontaneously turn directly towards me and start firing. And on Mygeeto especially, I'll be empire and working my way down the side platforms of the bridge to the Rebel's starting CP, and I'll suddenly be the target of volley after volley of missles from the tanks. I'm off on my own killing infantry, while a dozen fellow stormtroopers are storming the bridge itself, with tanks of their own, and botht eh Alliance tanks will launch all their *missles* directly at me.
So stupid. It's definitely my biggest complaint with the game so far.

Jennaida
11-07-2005, 12:18 AM
If the ground is too white, pause it and lower the brightness. I have to raise it for some levels, then lower it back to 50 for Hoth, or it'll be far too bright.

And YES, Joey. That's EXACTLY it. It'll jus turn spontaneously and several will start firing at you. It's annoying as all hell. It's ridiculous. Again. "shoot the soldier at 50 feet, or shoot the one at 50 millimeters?" The Battlefront II AI will shoot for the one at 50 feet if its marked 'player'. It was programmed by a 4 alarm flaming idiot.

I suppose someone would complain it was too "dumb" if it did standard threat assessment and shot the closer ones, while you sniped it or such.

JawaJoey
11-07-2005, 12:29 AM
Pretty much. I don't so much mind that there is a preference towards targeting the player. Like if me and a freind come after someone and they usually start shooting me first, for example. But the way it is now is so blatant and illogical.

Jennaida
11-07-2005, 01:09 AM
Again, exactly. It's blatant and aggarvating. It makes the game... unfun.

Or for a faster approch: You can jump down and run around like a crazy person, dodging blaster bullets while your missile reloads. Thats what I did and it worked ok.

To gain more level time, go through the waste disposial from the detention tunnel instead of walking around those walkways (you can also jump from walkway to walkway instead of walking around the whole thing)

11-08-2005, 06:43 AM
As for that crazy AI, i think the programmers coded the NPC's to deal with human players as if they were "heroes" even if they are only simple troopers. That's why they will shoot at you no matter what.

Bloody annoying if you ask me. The main theme of battlefront *should* be to be just a regular joe on the frontlines, no more important or special as anyone else. And this new AI just makes it a worst experience.

I haven't tried it again though. the ROTE missions are just so annyong to play over again, especially when you fail on the last ovjective. You just don't want to do all that over again right away...

Try staying Darth Vader. He can easily sprint from the bomb to the bomb planting area. Now after you have planted the bomb, stand back. Most of the Rebels should go after the bomb and not you. Use the lightsaber throw to take them all out from a distance. If you die, come back and throw gernades into the area where they stand. Don't be a slow firing unit, such as the rocket trooper, you need to kill large amount of units quickly.

MandaloreBIC
11-12-2005, 03:32 AM
staying vader is so hard, about 1/4 of your bar is gone from caping the hanger, and then you have to dash across the turrents, which takes half your health away, and after you plant it, you only have 1/4 health left, and you are easily killed, if it was Obi, it would be alot better (he's best jedi ever!), becasue obi's sprint attack makees more sense then darth vader's wide useless swing that's easy to miss.....

11-12-2005, 03:42 PM
All i did was be Darth Vader, sprint to the bomb planting area and waited. Soon, tons of rebels came and i just kept throwing my light saber and and killing them. After vadar died, i was a dark trooper and keept shooting his (arc caster i think). All you have to do is stay on the bomb and shoot chrched blasts. Don't forget to reload when you can. I think the Hoth mission and Mustfar were easy, compered to Yavin, which was the hardest to me.

New tips for those who have yet to beat Hoth: When you have to take the hanger, run in and steal a speeder. Fly into the ending area of the map (behind the tunnels where all the still standing turrets are). You can stay in your speeder and destroy all the Rebel's auto-turrets. This will make your last two objectives much easier. Now fly back over to take the hanger.
If you have the time, you can land and go into the tunnels from the back way (where you just destroyed the turrets). You can't reach the hanger, but you can kill a few troops now instead of later. They didn't even see me as I shot them all one by one. These troops do respawn after a while, but I think their count will be less if you pick them off now instead of when they are charging after you later.

daventry

I tried it and it does not work, the Game switches back to its normal Game play once you capture the next Command Post. In other words, you must destroy the turrets again.

In hindsight, overall, the SP challenges were pretty lame. I think they need a bit more "substance". WTF is with those infinate-spawing rebels?

It's something to add to BF3, more variety in missions and more missions that don't involve you running to a command post. I'd live to see more "using the strenghts of particular classes" kind of things. I'd love to have to wreck bridges as an engineer, to halt rebel movements, then switch to a sniper to stop rebels using theirs to stop the other engineer teams getting taken out...

I'm going to have to plug my geonosis idea in the "Endor map idea" thread though. That'd make a brilliant SP level, because you could supervise each stage (e.g, make the first drpoship landings, secure the geonosian arena, drop down AT-TE's/protect them...)

I think CP design would play a big part in helping things 'flow' as well. Like Yarvin, they should be inside temples. Not in the open, so that if you must have a "nick the post" objective, it loooks like you're actually getting somewhere in an advantagous position, not just for the hell of it. How many times must you take a post "because it'd make a good lookout" when it never is?

I am liking those ideas in your 2nd paragraph.

Other than that, it would have been good to see a different bunker on Endor - a much larger one to reflect the one in ROTJ in which you actually have to blow the door open, inflitrate it and kill the stormtroopers/officers, plant the bombs, and get the hell out of there before the thing blows...

You know, in hindiight, the storymode is the second worst POS for a modern shoot-em-up this millenium.

The first being BF1. I mean, doesn't anyone else feel ripped off that 99% of all objectives involve capturing posts and the Hoth level is a rip-off?

When I lose games, I prefer to lose through my own stupidity. Not because it's me versus the entire rebellion on my own. It isn't even about 'skill' more about luck sometimes and I refuse to play though the story mode on PC, at least you can cheat on 2-player co-op.

We want OBJECTIVES, not stupid 'move the flag into position against infinately spawning rebels'.

when i buy the game im gonna have to play it on elite cause normal was too easy for me. the ONLY mission i had trouble with was the one where vader boards the princesses ship. mainly cause i was being stupid and couldnt find where she was hiding. about the 3rd time i used the map.... :\


oh and for the record i found hoth to be dissapointing for its lack of challenge... maby ellite will challende me more. :twogun:

The name of that map is Tantive IV. And stay on topic. This is about Hoth, not Tantive IV.

Hoth is way harder than the rest.

Its like impossable to stop the rebels from dropping a million nades into the trench destroying the bomb after you plant it.

I know someone talk about vader but he never comes out after the cut scene. I have the PC CD version, but doubt it makes any difference.

I am sure I myself did not destroy the bomb, cause FF is off, and the random rifle spray is not deadly enough.

The rebel base is protected by loads of sentry guns, so you really need someone as nimble as maul to muck around outside...

I find it funny that it actually a really good co-op level though, when one dies, the other can respawn and give backup. Easy.

You can fly back there in a stolen speeder and blow them all up without taking any damage. Do this before you reach the area as a objective.

Oh good, it's not just my computer. The ground on Hoth is blindingly white, which is annoying. Also, on Naboo, the ground is completely black in most places.




You both know you can change the brightness and the contrast right?

Hoth was simple, use vader. BEFORE you place the signal, destroy all turrets. If you lost him, be a ENGINEER after you drop it because the rebels will IGNORE you. They just keep chucking gernades at the objective. It takes at least 5 gernades to take <10% off(xbox version) the objective and you repair 5+% every second. If you take damage, give yourself health. You can kill rebels every so often inbetween too or let them run out of ammo(which they will).

Hoth is much easier when you have Friendly Fire on. The Rebs will do more damage to each other than to the beacon, and you can stay back and pick them off at your leisure.

With friendly fire off though, it is much more challenging.

I finish it with FF off.

FF ON might be more interesting, but I hate FF games. Well, the Imps don't have enough reenforcements for me to slaughter my teammates.

When I was playing Hoth with my cousin the rebels always won. I would be in a At-At and I would be destroying all of the turrets and I destroyed the sheild generator and then my cousin and I went onto the next part of Hoth and that is when the hard part came up with the beacon. And my cousin was Vader and I have no idea how he died, probably with a grenade

if u think hoth is hard you should try polis masa. That is hard. I admit i had trouble with hoth and polis masa. for hoth you just have to keep on attacking there hanger after you take out the shield generator. for polis masa take over there main base at the other end trust me they work just try it..

Polis Massa...isn't too hard. After playing it once I had no problem beatinf afterwards. But, eh, we all have are own opinions.

yea Polis Massa was not that hard compared to hoth. Some people also thought that space missions were hard but when I first played them it was really fun and easy at times.

Well space mission is a whole new ballgame, but not too hard when you used to it. It is also nice to change the space controls to suit your needs, like disable reverse mouse, and change the "roll" buttons to your A and D.

Polis Massa is a bit annoying, in the way where stupid teammates are always blocking your path. I won't call it hard though, just annoying. FF off helps alot here. (then again I don't really like to play FF off, I get more kills off my team than comp most of the times)

FF on helps on Polis Massa too. Shooting down all those dumb bots that are blocking your way :fire11: :roll1:

On PM all AIs are stuck on the corridor... leaving the stairs largely empty.

So just go up the stairs and double back, nailing enemy bots from behind. Its a easy ride.

What I'm working on right now is to get to Legendary Status via IA so I have all the kick*ss guns at my disposal, hopefully making it easier to pick of the Rebel Scum in this level

once again, another persons elite hardcore imperialism sickens me. ;)
eh, legendary takes a while, and the levels i'd suggest to get that status are geonosis and mos eisley- the former for the vehicle based awards and the latter for the troop absed awards.
just to make this on topic and to add a bit of controversy: Hoth was the easiest level on the game ;)

make sure you've got frenzy unlocked on legendary. if it's too hard cheat. but do try to beat is without cheat help, as you'llb e proud of yourself afterwards for doign a good job. the award rifle pwns everyone though- my advice is to watch you ammo load count though and hdie to relaod when you need to. it is hard, just go coempletely insane and shoot anything that moves, even your own men. (but make sure friednly fire is off)
