Don't use your EMPs on Assault Droids and Snipers, or any droids (except Droideka) with low health; use your pistol. Save your EMPs for tougher enemies.

I can't help you with Dark troopers but I'm sure someone can.

I thought the gun has unlimited ammo?

I meant the Jet Trooper's EMP launcher. The Dark Troopers ARC Caster has unlimited ammo.

When using the Dark Trooper, hold on the fire button when using the arc caster and it will do more damage. Plus the weapon hit multiple enemies.

I figured out (might be a bug) that DURING flight with the Darktrooper, you can re-charge your caster (not having it charged before flight, but during the flight you can). Use it to your advantage. You can have a 2/3 charged clip when you land if timed right, and can take out 2 enemies that have been in a firefight.

With Jet Trooper, when i see a group of 5-ish enemies, i fly up and toward them, then (while in air) fire off an EMP round (might want to lead the target a bit) at the biggest clump of them. Then you land, run in circles, roll, and do whatever it takes to stay alive long enough to get back in the air, repeat, and try again. when your down to 1 enemy, just finish him off with the pistol.

Both worked great for me

well, note that you can charge durin airbone, but you can't charge it and then jump, which is a bit annoying.

They should have made it so that you can charge-> jump -> fire.

You can double jump as a Dark Trooper. Run and use your jet pack. Turn it off in mid flight, when you are about to hit the floor, turn in on again. You can go really far.

PoiuyWired 02-13-2006 04:39 PM

But do you lose your gun charge if you double jump???

ScoutTrooper95 02-13-2006 10:36 PM

Yeah. You can only charge if you're on the ground or have the jetpack on.

when i play as a jet trooper i usally jump dodge fly trick and stuff like that

also i use the pistol mostly beacause it is fast

also get used to quickly changing weapons and throwing nades while reloading

try making some tricks of your own..

PoiuyWired 02-17-2006 01:05 PM


If you have the flag, don't you can't jetpack.

I have seen many nubs fall to their death.

zerted 02-17-2006 03:32 PM

I never forget that I can't fly with a flag, but I always forget Jedi jumping is a force power. Jedi can only jump once if they have a flag.

the jety pistol is great for getting award pistol

Demonic Spoon 04-05-2006 06:40 PM

What I do as a dark trooper, which almost guarantees a quick kill:

Shoot them once with the arc caster (in the head makes this easier). QUICKLY, while they are still stunned, pull out your pistol and click the mouse button reaaaaly fast. The stun will stop them from moving out of the way, while your pistol finishes up.

you can charge the arc caster in flight, and also throw nades really far if you are flying forwards (dark and Jet trooper). also, try and use them for picking off small groups, not get in a massive firefight i.e naboo central plaza.

There is only one definate role when you fight as anything wtih with a jet pack or a lightsaber: Be a spaztic idiot. When your running around people use your jet pack to dodge by jumping, double jumping, canceling your jump, etc.

you dont need a jetpack or 'sabre to act like a spaztic idiot... any old gun will do me fine, or a pointy stick!

Personally, my best trooper is the dark trooper. Not only are they fast, but they also contain an element of surprise. Plus their weapon is pure power. Playing on Live, I got 65 kills in one life with it

Arc9 12-26-2006 12:50 PM

as the dark trooper press the jump button as many times as you can super fast to do a <<super jump>>
Also,do a roll a second maximum after shooting with the arc caster then shoot as soon as the roll is done. It will shoot before it finishes recharging

Jet Trooper: In my opinion, he isn't very good, but to make best use of him, use his TDs/Grenades for groups (Mostly you'll want to ambush with this guy, so the thermal detonators are pretty good), his EMP for enemy emplacements and vehicles (And stronger enemies such as Droidekas), and use his Commando Pistol for basic defense. The reason your main weapon is a pistol is because he is made for swift ambushes.

Dark Trooper: In my opinion, he is THE way to go if you are looking to ambush someone. First of all, his jetpack doesn't fly for long, but it has a huge burst of speed for a sudden strike. Not only that, but a weapon that is capable of severe damage to massive amounts of enemies. If you charge it in the air, while ambushing a group, it will do amazing. He also carries Thermal Detonators to take care of tight situations.

Jet trooper:I would say the jet trooper isn't that good but if you reallly want to be him here is some tips. A lot of people say that EMP should only be used for Droidekas,vehicles ect. but sometime you can get lots of kills by using it on other enemies (Highest I got without dying was 23 on ROTE)

Dark Trooper: IMO dark trooper is way better because of the Electric Gun he has. A good technique is to keep shooting with the Electric Gun untill you run out of ammo. Fly behind some cover and reload. Repeat untill you are out of ammo fly to a Ammo droid or pick up some health and repeat the process again.

I hope this helped.

RC-1207 04-09-2007 01:39 PM

Jet Trooper: Get the award pistol. Then fly up to somewhere high, land, and snipe with it, or just snipe during flight. Watch the ownage.

Dark Trooper: You can use the above strategy, or simply use the Arc Caster in guerilla tactics against the enemy.

Another thing that could help is recruiting another Jet/Dark trooper to help you.
