View Full Version : Fun with Stormtroopers

Or rather '101 ways to kill a stormie'

tell me your favorite ways of kicking their plastic rears

mine is force jumping over them and then force pulling them whilst in mid air above them, completly launching them into the air , they even do the AAAAHHHHH if you pull em high enough ^^

so what's yours ?

04-17-2002, 04:21 PM
That's a good one, I'll have to try it out.

I love to Force Grip them and while they are midair, throw them up against a wall.

And one cannot argue against just Force Pushing them off a cliff or walkway. And I love it when you Force Pull their gun away, so they either try to run away from you or just stand there with their arms in the air.

04-17-2002, 07:19 PM
Stand with your back to a wall and pull stormies to you. Then slash them. You end up with a pile o' troopers at your feet. That and pushing them into bottomless pits.

04-17-2002, 07:26 PM
I like to force grip them, then throw the saber at them while they are getting choked -- total overkill, but damn is it fun!

04-17-2002, 08:12 PM
I dont know that I have a favorite but I like the idea of jumping high then pulling them into the air. I'll have to give that a try next time I play.

04-17-2002, 08:59 PM
i pull their guns away from them and then through them up into the air and play catch...or i just push them around...
that's what i did with the barkeeper from nar shadda--i pulled his azz outside onto the streets, and launched him over the side....please jedis...not in the faces!!

04-18-2002, 01:52 AM
I like force pulling their weapon from their hands, then pushing it down a bottomless pit, or picking it up... so that they surrender.

Then, while they are standing with their hands in the air, I like choking them... until just before they die, then throwing them into the wall...

Its just a pity you can't see the changes in their faces when you activate your light saber and they know that they are going to die....

And YES, I've given in to my anger... the Dark side is just so much fun.

04-18-2002, 03:05 PM
I love to use grip to toss them a bit up in the sky, and then push them still higher/away :)

Or to befriend a trooper, with mind trick, and then grip another trooper, so my new "friend" can shoot him, hehe

04-18-2002, 08:19 PM
I'm wondering how you guys are throwing them into walls... Are you force gripping them, then force pushing them? or is there something else that you guys are doing?

04-19-2002, 12:15 AM
Easy. Just grip them and move your mouse around. They'll hover with whatever direction you're moving the mouse in. Paint the walls with their bodies.

04-19-2002, 02:06 AM
I prefer to go for the Han Solo approach...

I power up the blaster with the secondary attack and then go for a long(ish) distance attack on an unsuspecting white-plastic-muppet and watch as it does that cute spinning-in-the-air dance that Michael Jackson would be so proud of.

I must admit that the whole force grab 'n' drop approach is kinda fun though. :D

04-19-2002, 01:05 PM
Force pull their weapons, and throw your saber as they run away....

Shadow Blade
04-19-2002, 02:06 PM
my fave is force griping then in to the air (griping and throughing) and then when they come down force push them or force lightning

04-19-2002, 02:13 PM
I wonder how easy it would be to "skeet shoot" a trooper. Grip him, throw him, and take aim with your blaster..... :D

04-19-2002, 02:51 PM
And I thought that I was the only sadistic one LOL...

I have to go with the force pull slash style, and get you a big pile of them at your feet.

Or just strip a bunch of them of their weapons, and sit there and laugh while they dance with each other holding their hands up in the air.
I was doing that last night aboard the Doomgiver, I called my wife in to see it, all she did was shake her head and walked out of the room :p

Any way, this was a good idea for a post ForcePowerJR...

The best way to kill stormtroopers is in the Doomgiver shield array level. At the very beginning, about 15-20 Stormtroopers came out onto the walkway by the big cylindrical core. I used my newly acquired force power to pick each one up and throw him down the shaft. If you want to do this without taking hits from the other troopers that have not yet faced your wrath, you can put on God mode.

04-19-2002, 11:22 PM
The best one is in the level where you have to sneak around. As you approach an area, a squad of troopers come up a lift and then fan out. The alarm is being worked on by a droid... hehe

They're the guys that say something like "Have you ever seen an --- sickle?" "No, what's that" "It's a double bladed sith weapon, sorta like an axe"...

Anyhow if you force speed over to the lift as they're coming up, and look down... the second they're all in sight, force pull. You'll pull the whole bunch up the shaft and they'll continue to soar about 50 feet over your head before falling in a heap next to the wall!

04-20-2002, 01:48 AM
Honestly, I prefer using high explosives because the poor dead schmucks actually fly away from the explosions, limbs flailing, already dead, etc... if only JKII had the corpse physics of Hitman I could die happy. Of course, that would involve the corpses staying on the ground for more than 5 seconds, but I think that would also be a welcome improvement.

04-20-2002, 08:44 AM
I enjoy setting g_saberrealisticcombat to '1' and hacking various limbs off! The best is if you have slow motion on excessive and you chop their heads off and then their torso's on a second turn...Mmmmmmm

But in a non-cheating world I like to force grip 'em, force jump wayyyyyy up, then letting them go and watching them fall on their heads. It's asimple pleasure but it consistently makes me smile and laugh.

Some women just lose their sense of humour as soon as the marriage vows are over;)

I would have been giggling like a mofo but then - I am a guy...:D

04-20-2002, 11:45 AM
I like on the doom giver level when you start off with the ship and some troopers come in on the walkway above, i force jump then while im in mid air force pull them and throw my saber at the same time and they get cut in half and go splat on the ground.

04-20-2002, 12:49 PM
I find one of the easiest ways to kill a room full of stormies is to just stand in the doorway and block all their shots soon their commander will go down and they will panic and start running around yelling "Retreat!" and "Run away!" Ni! Ni! Then you can pick off the straglers.:D

04-20-2002, 01:04 PM
I was haveing fun with it Pantha...

But the wifey can make me feel rather silly sometimes... Hmm so what, hell it's fun hehehe...

My favorite moment in killing stormtroopers would have to be on the DoomGiver ship when all those Stormtroopers are in the hanger area, and you open the airlock and watch them all go flying out into space screaming all the way. :) I also prefer the old fashion methos of just force Lighting. I love watching the lighting play off there dead bodies and watch 'em twich :) :lightning

04-20-2002, 09:27 PM
You guys are SICK!!!!

Which means you're my kind of people!

Hmmm....fave way to kill stormtroopers....I'm not into fancy moves (mainly because I can't do them!) so I just prefer the good ol' Force Grip and/or the Force Push, mainly off ledges...

04-20-2002, 10:38 PM
With Cheats :

Use Setforceall 5 or whatever it is, and use mind tricks on a reborn/shadowtrooper and going ahead and wasting any stormtroopers further ahead. It's always so much fun as they walk by unsuspecting THEN BAM lightsaber to the kidneys. I wish Tavion were near some Stormtroopers :(

Also, use npc spawn desann and have at those bastards. Having unlimited force power has it's perks when you mind tricks him with the above setforceall :)

Without Cheats :

Use choke to pick one up and just repeatedly slap him into a wall like he was a ragdoll, yet with enough finesse that he lives. Everytime you can pull it off they almost ALWAYS throw their hands up (which is when you fire that EMP gun.) If you want them dead, I guess the obvious answer is force speed and a good force push. See how man you can make dead before they hit the ground.

04-21-2002, 01:40 AM
For some reason I take great pleasure in repeatedly pushing them down with force push before hacking off a limb... Using mind control to take over a body and then killing their friends is always fun too...

04-21-2002, 01:53 AM
My favorite way to kill a StormTrooper is to Force Grip them and run into a doorway so he get stuck up against the wall and falls and hits the wall:D :D Or just Choke'em to death or lightning'em:cool: :lightning All of them are fun:p

04-22-2002, 01:07 AM

This takes some doing in most circumstances but:

Force Speed and run so that you are behind them and then throw your Light Sabre or wap out your blaster and pop a cap in their ass (literally)

Oh the Humanity (Tee Hee)

I'll never forget how hard I laughed to first time I realized that Stormtroopers couldn't fly.

It's really satisfying to grab one of those snotty Imperial Officers in a quick GRIP and then chuck him through those glass plates like a frisbee.

Force GRIP 3 lends itself to several abuses such as:
Bouncing a trooper off the floor and ceiling until he dies. (Swing your mouse violently back and forth to make a paste of whoever is unlucky enough to be caught in the vice.)
The very popular GRIP & PUSH assisted take-off which usually ends in a scream. (It even works well on those pesky Reborn and Shadowtroopers.)
Human shields. I get giddy watching some poor smuck absorb blaster fire from his buddies when you keep him hovering in front of you.

PUSH also works wonders when your facing those rocket troopers and ATST walkers. (You can even PUSH blaster beams and detonators back.)

04-24-2002, 03:34 PM
I've learned that even the Jedi, Stormtroopers, and Rebornbosses are vulnerable to this.

Use force jump 3, and at the highest part of the jump, force grip your target, look up, and then push, very quickly.

Killing shadowtroopers like this is very satisfying.

04-24-2002, 04:33 PM
My friend was playing on the doomgiver mission (I forget which level.. whichever one with those fun loading bays) and he was above those vents where you can hear STs talking, and he drops down, wastes all but one ST and an officer, and got the keen idea of holding them in a grip to lift them JUSt a bit, then force pushing them through those two layers of glass like a bullet. Was the most hilarious crap I've ever seen. (That last post someone mentioned it, just reminded me.)

04-25-2002, 08:25 AM

I like to pull their weapons, or just hold my saber in strong style and pull them into it.
Hav also noticed that a few types of ST picks up weapons that are lying around and use them against me. (mostly the boys with Flechette/Heavy Repeeter)

one time a Reborn was jumping around me all the time, I used push when he was on the top of his jump. He didnt jump anymore after that...

04-25-2002, 09:56 AM
This one is hard to do...

On the Doomgiver Shields level...

I got bored one night and decided to have some fun. Took me about 20 minutes to get it right, but I moved EVERY ST and officer on that level I could find (that I didn't wax by accident) onto the pipe you extend to the centre control room. I had about 12 or thirteen unarmed STs and a couple of officers running around. The chatter was amazing, they just would NOT shut up.

I saved at that point and then just tried different things.

1. Threw a Thermal Detonator into the middle of them, very pretty, they went flying in all directions. Looked like a flower.

2. One looooong saber throw down the tube. Killed 'em all in one go. Funny watching all of them slump over clutching various missing limbs and groaning.

3. Did you know you can disintergrate more than one target at a time with the Disruptor when you crank it up to full power?

4. Pulled one weapon (a Repeater) onto the tube and watched one of them pick it up. Befriended him, let him kill the rest, then pushed him off. (felt guilty about that one)

5. With Force Speed on I actually pulled a "Crocodile Dundee" move, walked over their heads from end to end of the tube...

6. Gripped one, used him to knock the rest off, then dropped him.

7. Pushed one off, then PULLED HIM BACK UP. He died on landing, but it helped me test my new Force key-bindings.

(in re-reading this post, I have determined that this is one sick-ass thread....EXCELLENT STUFF FORCEPOWEREDJR!)

04-25-2002, 02:51 PM
You people bring a tear to my eye , imagine how the movies would've gone if they where as 'creative' as us lot.

Imagine Luke grabbing a stormtrooper with grip and then just use it to bash up Vader

And who needs the Falcon if you could just launch em to the other planets with push ?

04-25-2002, 03:05 PM
Let's see...aside from the ol' "grip and drop"...

I like standing there for half an hour, facing down a squad of troopers and a couple officers with my saber, yawning while deflecting shot after shot after shot. It's especially fun if I take down officers or stormtrooper commanders first--then they run like little pansies.

04-25-2002, 06:19 PM
My vote is for the dismemberment cheat and then ginsu them into piles.
A close second is the Doomgiver airlock. "Show me your IDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE......."

I like to kill them.

That's pretty much it, really. They're my favourite gun-toting bad guys. I enjoy bouncing their blaster fire back into their faces. I enjoy dicing them. I enjoy using every kind of force power available on them. I enjoy using the surrounding environment in every way possible. And finally, I love listening to them when they die. They just sound so...stormtroopery!

:charric: :trooper: :lol:

04-26-2002, 01:37 AM
In the docking bay on the asteroid, after you open the sheild and they all fly out into space, go back into the big room (with the two guns and two elevators) there are still two stormy's at the top of the elevators. Get in position just below one of them and then take them out with the disrupter. When he dies he falls forward (screaming the whole way down) and sometimes lands right on top of you.

04-26-2002, 04:31 AM
I always use the good ol' Grip n Shock method to kill my enemies. Especially the Reborns.
It really sucks out your force, but man it's cool!

The great thing about the advanced saber defense levels is that so long as you keep them in front of you you don't get hit.

On that level, go out the door and move to the right against the wall. No one can get behind you, and you can have fun pushing, pulling, gripping and zapping stormies to your hearts' content ...


04-26-2002, 12:36 PM
Also on the Doombringer ... I think the level before the shields ...

When you get to the big hanger rooms where you need to enable the platforms, it is fun to open the bay doors to watch the flying stormies, but you can also mind trick a couple of them - I tend to do one at either end - and watch them kill each other for a bit, then open the doors.

04-26-2002, 03:15 PM
I don't know how it happened, but on that level, where you can blow them out into space, I had opened the doors, they all went flying, then I closed the doors.

Just as the doors closed a TIE Pilot came zooming back INTO the hanger from outside. He died on hitting the floor, but I just stared in amazement for a second as I was thinking, "How the hell did he do that?"

He was flying a transparent TIE Fighter, so you only saw the pilot.

i force grip them then keep it on and hit them with other guys its FUNNY looks like there superman

04-27-2002, 04:11 AM
I like force gripping them, and throwing my lightsaber at their helpless body, usually ends up ripping them in half :D Also I like pulling them and when they are on the ground I throw my lightsaber at them while they are on the ground.

04-27-2002, 10:09 PM
I have to go with force jump then when you almost at the peak of the jump force pull them, they go flying toward you then up up and away over your head to land way behind you if they don't ricochet off they ceiling and walls on they way.

04-27-2002, 11:40 PM
Chop there hand off, and as they writhe on the ground grip then then either lightning or throw saber.

04-27-2002, 11:56 PM
That's sick but COOOL

I think it may become my favorite way very quickly... :D

04-28-2002, 12:32 AM
1. Force grip, raise them up, then bring them down as fast as possible. Fun if you like keeping a kneecap collection.

2. Cheat with setforceall 5 and use mind trick. Find the nearest ledge. Swan-dive (preferably onto Kyle's head).

3. Crouch, and force pull troopers onto your saber -- kabobs abound!

4. Throw your saber, but hit "1" before it reaches the target, thereby turning it off and letting it drop on the ground. Initiate Force Speed, jump really high, and hit your primary attack button on the way up - your saber returns to you, and when you are descending, you can dice your target.

5. Push a trooper into wall until he dies!

05-15-2002, 02:55 AM
My favorite way to kill stormtroopers is to pull their weapon away, then use push to ram them into a whole bunch of walls.

But a cool way to kill Reborns is in the Doomgiver's shield array there are some deactivated R5 droids ahere you face off with a Reborn. What I did was try to knock the Reborn off of his feet but instead one of the R5s got pulled towards me. It hit the Reborns head and killed him instantly. That was so F*@#ing funny I just sat there laughing for five minutes.

Man I wish the movies were this cool.

05-15-2002, 04:16 PM
A great way to kill a reborn is to use force speed and time it so as they jump sideways you swing your lightsaber and take off their head. It's great watchining them fly through the air as their head lies at your feet.

05-15-2002, 07:02 PM
It isnt realy killing someone and its not a stormtrooper but in the bespin city when you have to jump off platforms when a gust of wind to get you to hte next platform theres a guy on one of the platforms when i force push he fell of the platform because of the wind he will go up and down it was hully as hell

Ewok Hunter
05-15-2002, 08:35 PM
great ideas :D
I like to pull their wepons then kill them with the taunt where you spin your saber.

05-18-2002, 04:46 AM
I really like the "weed wacker" approach. I just walk into a group of them and hit taunt. It's great with g_saberRealisticCombat 1 on. Pieces just go everywhere!

05-19-2002, 03:29 AM
I was on the ship, and I opened the hanger door to flush out all the stormtroopers into space. It was fun to watch them, but one of them somehow landed outside the hanger door (this is in outerspace mind you), and he didn't die. So, I went to the turrent gun that you could use to destroy tie fighters, and well, I shot him good. I know it doesn't sound that funny, but imagine a stormtrooper actually being able to live in outerspace. I'm sure the empire would of loved having a whole bunch of them, because it would save on having to make tie fighters.

06-06-2002, 10:52 AM
my fav (for those dumbass reborns as well) is FORCE GRIP em and really quickly look up while still gripping them
then as soon as they are right above you FORCE PUSH, they go flying up and then fall down screaming

as for the reborn they do the same, but u have to be quick with them so they cant push you and negate the grip

after a bit of practice i can do it every time

and if im in the mood i'll aim and let loose a SABER THROW
if model dismemberment is on and you get em
they fall down in 2 pieces
