This level is kicking my a**. I've made it to the last objective, where you have to go out and retake all the command posts. But the CIS has apparently infinite reinforcements, and they just grind you down. And it's tough enough just to make it to there. Anyone have some suggestions for beating this level? :firemad:

My patience is running thin.

Mmm, when you get Yoda, rush out of the base and take the furthest CP to start with (this will cut off their main supply of tanks). After that, go for the one surrounded by rocks towards the centre of the map. If Yoda's still viable to fight, then rush him over to the beachhead and take that if you can. By this point, you'll probably have lost Yoda, so just continue with whatever class you play best as. Lead some troops out and hold the CP nearest to your 'last'. When you have it, you could man one of the concussion turrets to cover your troops advance or you could join their foot zerg. Whatever, just make sure that as many as possible are pushing forwards.

Now THAT sounds like a plan. Thanks.

So far, Kashyyyk and Utapau are the only levels where I haven't finished the level as a Jedi. In Mygeeto, Felucia, Coruscant I have completed as the Jedi I have been given. Personally, I think Kashyyyk is one of the tougher levels in the Story mode.

Kashyyyk is a tough level. Naboo is a tough level in Rise of the Empire, for certain. So is Mustafar. Mustafar has a huge bug on the 3rd objective, which makes it problematic. There's an auto-turret that somehow doesn't collision detect even for a closed door, and shoots right through it.

Mustafar, Naboo, Kashyyyk, Yavin IV, and Hoth (still trying to beat it) so far are the only levels I have had to redo....I have yet to experience any bug in the game.

Naboo? With that you just grab the tank and farm everything. That's the onyl strategy I need for that one :D

Oh man, Kashyyyk took me forever to defeat, I ended up losing Yoda early and barley winning with only 1 reinforcement point left, and 3 Snail droid's apporaching the final post where I was hiding...

I cant pass this level either its soo tedious!!!

I lose Yoda too early and my reinforcements dont even try to take over bases they just stand around.. AGHHH!!!!

I have played as all of the hereos in Instant Action and I have come to the conclusion the Darth Maul is the best by along way! then probably Emporer palpatine, Darth Vader or Good Ol' General Greivous.. Luke Skywalker and Yoda die to easy.. Princess Leia is just pathetic..

OK, here's a hint for getting your troops to do something;

Play lots and lots of IA or GC missions. If you get 300 of those awards (you can see how many you got at the end of the map) you can lead 4 troops, who follow you around if you tell them to. There are lower numbers for less troops, but 4 for 300 is the most.

Once you get this, go through the missions with your personal squads. Use F4 (default) to tell a unit to follow you. Sprint a lot to make sure they stay with you, and try to stay away from the enemy as much as you can. When you get to a CP, they'll make it much faster, and will act as meat shields. This doen't work for heros, but you'll probably spend at least half of a map as a solider anyway.

Kashyyyk is the first map I had some trouble.

I lost Yoda very early (and thus learned how vulnerable Jedi are to rockets - something to remember for the coruscant level). I ended up playing with an engineer and blowing up their vehicles. The shotgun is also great when used on bunch of enemies.

Naboo can be hard near the end. The Naboo tanks spawn very fast and it's hard to get the upper hand. I ended up attacking from the front gates with the tank and it was a lot easier.

I had no problems with mustafar, and haven't seen any bugs.

Oh, how I hate Kashyyk. The beach head is easy to take, but the last two is impossible to overtake. I will try to play IA alot though.

Slash into a enemy vehicle (or just use one of your own) and sprint to the last two CPs.

Don't go for the beach head first, as this will only concentrate the enemy forces at the back. Instead, when you get Yoda, run along the far left of the map until you're out of the refinery area. Then take the bridge thing to the back. Hide Yoda against the rocks with block on when capturing it, and only cut droids up when they get close. After you get this CP, take the second one that they started with (the one that they use to flank the beachhead in the first part of the map). Use the same tactic as before, and you should take it.

Now, for the final attack. You've got the enemy surrounded, with only 2 CPs and 2 tanks. Sprint Yoda to the beachhead, and push him against the barricade, using his size to his advantage. Use block and face the thing that's throwing out the most fire power to save energy. Once you take this CP, then you've on the last stretch. Rush their last CP and do as much drainage as you can, jumping around to avoid fire, rolling away ect. If you die, respawn quickly and get back in. Make sure that you spawn using the beachhead, and not the refinery or the CISs original CPs.

Remember: The CIS is hellbent on that refinery! Don't spoil their fun when you get Yoda! Take them from behind, where they have 1 or 2 units, and not 20. This is key. If you force them back, then they'll grab their tanks, and you don't want them using them to farm your few remaining troops. Make a complete flanking, and not a semi. Go for the farthest and pull in. The droids'll never see it coming.

Holy Freakin' Hell!

I just COMPLETED Kashyyyk: A Line in the Sand (hope I got that right).

Well...It took me ROUGHLY 20-30 minutes of:

Killing, Dying, Changing Class, Dieing, Dying, Dying, Capturing, Dying, Capturing, Killing, Capturing (ok...letz see...that's 3 CP captured), Dying, Dying, Killing, Killing, Killing, Killing, LOW HEALTH, Capture Last CP (the CIS main CP -- Where they get the vehicles from). !!!! (I was sooooooo relieved when I captured the last CP (sucessfully)) -- I still COULD NOT believe that it took that long.

The Space portion of Kashyyyk was even worse.

I would get the holocron from inside the enemy ship...then I would fly outta the enemy hangar, and almost immediately, got shot down. (the easy part was actually BEING IN the enemy ship! --ONCE YOU DESTROY THE AUTO TURRET SYSTEM! --

Important thing is, I was able to beat the level.....annnnnd I had fun (<--that one's the MOST important!)

Signing off!
(Time for dinner --THEN...The family is going to watch "Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith" )

Jedi are very annoying. Almost to difficult, just try to use high powered weapons. Like the shotgun or the bazooka.

For the Republic, use a Clone Commander. CIS - Magnaguards, Droideka. Imperials - Storm Trooper or Imperial Officer. Rebels - Rebel Trooper, Bothan Spies, or Wookies.

You could just use a blaster rifle, i've done it, you just have to stand far enough away.

I found the last part of Kashyyk to be the easiest part. I was unsure up until I was given that last objective and got Yoda. Then with Yoda, I just ran around and owned everything and won quickly. I went the the beach first, but decided to leave and go for the other ones while my freinds finished the capture. I ended up capturing the rest of the CP's before I had to come back and cap the first one myself. =| It was actually one of the few times I've finished as a hero.

Utapau was one of the ones I had trouble on, and actually had to redo. It's not why i failed, but I lost Obi-Wan before Greivous even showed up. I had to pwn him in the face with a Clone Commander.

I also found the last part of Kashyyyk the easiest. The toughest part for me was when you have to protect the Oil generator or something like that. I had the most trouble on Mustafar. I found Utapau to be the easist. I lost Obi-Wan when trying to attack General Grievous and force-jump a little to far and fell over the edge. I always use a Clone Commander to finsh off Grievous. Than I us a Jet Trooper to destroy the AA Guns and the with the final obj I use any vehicle or a heavy trooper to finsh off the energy pillar.
