Play socom for abit...lol

Honestly. I'm a socom kid and I find it extremly easy to kill people. Also stay away from the droids. The're cool as hell but there guns suck. Blaster is the best gun, good fire rate and easy to control. THE MORTAR GUN SUCKS!

I heard you can jump on top of them, then get behind them and shoot up their backs. But i would'nt know since i don't have it yet.

Brute force, smack em with rockets. 1 takes down the shield another scraps him. The other reasonable way to deal with them is a good body shot while they first setup or are on the roll. They have horrible turn rates though so you could flank them like GlobalStrike said

That being said there are certain places which you can hold indefinitely with a single destroyer droid

Also, wait for the shield to go off, then get a headshot, it does a lot of damage then.

Another tip is, when you are in an AT-ST by yourself, with nobody else in it, shoot the main guns until they overheat, then switch to other position and fire those guns until they overheat, then swith back and they will be recharged again! So you can just switch back and forth and you never have to wait for guns to recharge, so you can keep up a steady stream of fire.

The best way to kill a destroyer droid is to get the Jetrooper's EMP Gun and fire at the shield. It takes 1-2 shots to take the shield and 1 shot to take down the destroyer droid.


Has anyone been in the Gunship Transport position when it blows up?

I have.

Ive got to say it is quite funny

I have been in the cargo section when it is landed. That is the vunrable spot which I found out when I let loose a rocket at the roof. It just blew up when it hit. The gunship had full health aswell!!

You cant walk freely though you just stand still.


(I also flew away when this happened)

Ok, I haven't found out how to use the Snipers drone, and to call in orbital strikes, the manuel says nothing about it, and the game doesn't either.

Press G to change your secondary weapon to Recon Droid. Right click to do your secondary attack and you willl then be in control of the recon droid. Fly it to where you want to do the orbital strike. Right click, You will hear beeping. A few seconds later, laser bolts will come out of the sky to the spot your droid was. If you want, you can switch back to your character (by scrolling the mouse wheel) right after you right click so you can actually watch the bombardment.

stuff I learned while playing (PC version)

learn to use the keyboard to control vehicles and starfighters.

Starfighters especially. Do *not* use the mouse except to pitch up or down or to fine-tune your aim. If you need to turn, use the W and D keys because they provide a much tighter turning arc than the mouse. In addition, there's no point in blazing around the map at full throttle. Starfighters always move forward unless you close throttle (S key) and put it into a hover, so using full throttle (W key) will usually just launch you off the map. Open it up only when you need to make a quick escape.

Personally, I find first-person/in cockpit view the easiest way to pilot vehicles and starships, except the Snowspeeder when you need to keep an eye on your tow cable.

Nearly all of the rocket launchers can 'lock on' to large targets like vehicles and spacecraft. Hold your crosshair over the target until a pair of red lines appear. If you don't, your shots will probably miss.

If you see a hovering "gun" hologram, you can use a pilot's fusion cutter to build a turret there. Fusion cutters can also repair busted droids, turrets, startships, and vehicles.

Tall skinny droids - heals you
Power droids - replenishes your ammo
Red R5 droids - vehicle/starfighter repair

now, can anyone tell me the difference between concussion, EMP, and standard grenades? Especially on characters that have two types? Why do I care? They all seem to do damage and don't have any special status effects.

Yea, Concussion Grenades are the Clone 'nade, but they do a lot more damage than normal dets, hence you only get two.

tips

I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for just shooting someone...it seems that whenever I try to kill someone, it takes like 50 shots to do it, but then I get killed in what seems like 1 shot.

When playing MP, if you'd like to keep the element of "surprise", don't shoot unnecessarily as this will cause you to show up on the enemy's radar (map)..

so don't fire until you're about to light someone up.

hint: AA guns are very handy anti-infantry guns (even at long range)

and the clone jettrooper is very good at taking out groups of droids, but its ammo is very limited so keep your eyes out for ammo powerups dropped by fallen friends/foes (the black boxes w/a red highlight)

Tip for Destroyers:

I've found that it is very effective to use destroyers in pairs. One can be open, shielded and firing, and the other rolls up and pushes its partner. Whenever you find cover, the two switch places.

This eliminates both the weakness in limited shields and limited speed.

If you are sniping.... remember the AI is stupid.
If the AI you are trying to hit is far away and moving, dont worry too much about hitting him coz if you get close he will stop.
Then just headshot away, and watch those kills rack up.

Stormtroopers (and others similar) will roll after the first shot... and then stand still. Generally different troops act slightly differently, but you learn quick enough and can pick them off.

If you are going on as a grunt, the Z key is your friend.
Zoom in, strafe and aim for the head. About 6 shots at most should finish them off.

If the crosshair is blue, then you are probably out of range, as soon as it goes red blast away. Usually they kinda of stop, or roll and stop, after thats its candy from a baby.

A lot of people on-line are using auto-aim, which is a really bad idea. You can identify these people easily by watching their laser blasts - When a target stays across their line of sight, their shots will temporarily track the new target.

It is almost impossible to get good head shots when auto-aim is on. Attack these people mercilessly.

thats a great idea. one thing to add though....droidekas, turn off your shields unless there's someone shooting at you. this way you have a lot more shielding, because your shields get to recharge

It doesn't seem like an exploit to me. I mean why should one weapons system overheat a totally seperate system?

If you had a second person in it you'd be firing double firepower at the same time anyway (rather than alternating fire, which you could do as well if you wanted to).

In " real life" it would just be like a soldier dodging from one set of controls to another (easy to do in an AT-ST, harder to do in an AT-TE).


As to how to switch, on the PC just roll the mouse wheel up or down to switch positions.

Droidekas are very easy to kill, just nail them while they are rolling or with shields down (vehicle guns or rockets work great) or just nail them with explosives or vehicle guns and one shot will take out their shields, second one blows them to bits. I suppose they would be hard to kill if you were just a lone infantry man with a blaster, but still. The only other place I engage them as in choke points (where multiples can be annoying). Just drop a grenade or two in front of them and run for cover. One for shield, one after the shield is down.
