Strategy Guide #1: Galak Fyyar (SPOILERS!!!)

Galak's armor is designed to have 2 layers of defense. The outer shield is generated from a small antenna on the back of the armor that rises up and behind the helmet. The shield will deflect any energy blasts and will disrupt a thrown lightsaber. It is also very resistant to the lightsaber in general. It is, however, vulnerable to concussive (explosive) damage and will have to recharge for a while if it's taken down.

Now here's the trick: when the shield goes down, destroy the antenna to stop the shield from ever coming back up. If you don't, the shield will come up and you'll have to take it down again. Each time it goes down it takes longer to recharge.

The armor itself is the opposite of the shield. It offers only normal protection against energy blasts, but is highly resistant to concussive blasts and explosions. Is is laced with cortosis and so is also somewhat resistant to the lightsaber.

WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW: how to defeat him...

I've seen many tactics to defeat Galak. Some sit on the rafters and use a rocket launcher to take down the shield, then the sniper rifle to take out the antenna, others use the alt-fire of the flechette gun then force-speed when the shield goes down, run behind him and take out the antenna with the main fire of the flechette. There are a lot of different combinations you can use to beat him, so be creative.
