Help Please - Question on How to Defeat... [SPOILERS]

I am stuck at a certain point and wondering if I am going about things all wrong.

spoiler:

I am on the mission in the 2nd group of 5 where you go to Coruscant to capture a crimeboss who has been selling assassin droids. About 1/2 way through the maze of building tops to get to the boss's building, I ran across a droid with some kind of shield. I assume this is the assassin droid they are talking about. Anyway, I tried all kinds of things to kill this bugger. I couldnt find anything that seemed to hurt it. I bypassed the droid and moved on. I figured at the time that they were meant to be avoided. Well when I finally made it to the boss hq, he hides himself and locks the door. Out comes 4 of these freaking droids. I couldn't even figure out how to take out one of them. I looked around for a secret exit to no avail. How on God's green earth can I defeat these things??

Easiest thing to do
spoiler:
is to get killed, choose new mission and restart the mission from scratch. Most of it's easy enough second time round. Only make sure you choose the DEMP-2 gun, this takes out the droids in 2-3 shots. Which makes the end easy.

Thanks for the info. I thought that was what I was going to have to get a Demp gun.

Nah, don't need a gun. Wait till they shoot, force speed, and hit them while the shield is down.

That's exactly what I did. I found that six or seven hits from the lightsaber turns them into so much scrap metal. If you have fast stance, use that - it blocks most of their incoming blaster shots - and stand just beyond the influence of their shields. As soon as their shield goes down, hit Force Speed and start hacking away. You'll have a good few seconds to get some slashes in (but you won't take it down within the time available before the shield comes up). Just wait until the shield goes down a second time, rinse and repeat, and you should have a dismembered droid flopping around your feet.

Use exactly the same tactic on the four droids at the end of the level - just make sure you don't allow any of them to flank you, so you can deflect their blaster fire. Take them down one at a time.

Hope that helps.

They keep ruling me. How do I get rid of 'em? I think it has something to do with timing their sheilds off and hitting them with lightsaber?

I'm sure this has already been posted before but I couldn't find it.

try using explosives or lightning if you want to stay away from their shields.

Just wait till their shields turn off then either whack them with a strong stance swing (if you have it) or throw your saber at them. Be quick though or you'll get stuck in their shields and you'll die.

Just stand in front of them, at a reasonable distance of course. Block their shots and wait for them to drop their shield. When they lower their shield throw your saber, and keep continuating this process until they fall. It takes time but its the easiest way to do it.

hmmm just get the demp emp gun and it just takes 2-3 shots of that. Plus, once you got the first shot, the droids disabled for a few seconds so he can't fire back.

Just what I was going to say, you two
That's what the DEMP gun's designed for

Yeah, you've got to re-start the mission, but the beginning bit of it's easier the second time round.

I never take the DEMP-2, it's only useful against robots, and how many levels do you fight robots? I always take the disrupter and the bowcaster/flechette/concussion rifle for the first/second/third set of missions.

I just standed besides it with force protect, and when the shield goes down, make a fast cut versus him, and then back of. repeat lots of times works best with red saber style.

I killed them all with the light stance roll-stab. Timed it so I rolled in right when the shield went down, and they usually collapsed just before I stood up again. If it didn't work, I think I had just enough time to back off before the shield went up again. This was on Jedi Knight difficulty, so it may not work if they have more health on Jedi Master.

silly kids. my method was probably faster then any of yours


when starting the mission select detonation packs as your explosive. when the 4 droids are spawned they will be in a small room off to the side very close to each other. force speed. run up and drop 2 det packs (one pack can kill 3 of em but you want em all gone quickly) make sure their shields are OFF when you detonate and huzzah!

in the words of jar jar "dumb droids".

its kind off topic but are there enemies (on any map) or locations that drop the demp gun? or can it only be picked up at the weapon select menu? I found no use for it until I read this thread. I guess i did it the hard way.

Im on last level and i haven't ever picked it up. I always carry it. Use saber on everything but turrets and robots. It comes in handy in the later levels. :P

Use the gun that shoots electric bolts. No. 7, I think. The one that looks a little like a blunderbus. Three shots, and their down, and you don't even need to wait for their shields to go down.

The Zero-G Troopers are another story, though. I've yet to find an effective strategy for taking them down.

Yes, you could use a gun or blaster, but a jedi would not resort to such tactics

If you want to kill them with your saber easily, this is my method.

Use the blue "fast" stance.

Just sit there crouched right on the outer reach of their force feild and wait for them to drop it ( they cant shoot with their force fields up).

As soon as they do lower the field, do the

crouch + forward + attack

instant kill hit with your saber there you swoop it forward and up.

It takes about 3-4 hits with this method.

If your succumbing to the darkside, and you have force lightning, this is also very effective against the assassin droids.

Very effective indeed,.....

Wait for them to drop the shields, put force speed on, and the kata move for fast stance. If you dont have the fast stance, just any combo of moves. They should drop before their shield comes back up.

New here,

I like to Mind Trick the Zero G Troopers on to my side, get them to do some work for me, then in payment slice them up with the saber.

How's that for employment terms and conditions.

Cheers,

Ah, let the jedi speak!

You pathetic mortals, a true jedi would not resort to the random weaponry as opposed to executing the opponent with a saber!

Even though it takes time, slash the Assassin Droid when their shield deactivates and they fire on you. Remember that you only have a few seconds.

The lightsaber is the preferred weapon of the Jedi. It's not their only weapon. They know how to shoot as well, you know.

Personally, I don't think Jedis would have any qualms against using a blaster when the situation calls for it. For example, Luke still used his blaster even after getting his lightsaber.

Two words: Thermal Detonator (probably just butchered the word Detenator..or however you spell the damn word.)

I also did the lightsaber trick.

Jedi Mind Trick is a great way to beat the hover troopers.

However, is there an easier way to beat the troopers in the huge bulky armor than using the gun you get when you hit 9 (I think it's the Concussion Rifle). Whenever I go close to saber, I get a few hits in, then they backhand me and shoot me with the gun I started using to fry them.

And yes, the Lightsaber is the symbol of the jedi, and is a tool of their trade with multiple uses. Some jedi only use lightsabers, but the ones with practical combat experience (like Corran Horn and Kyle Katarn (your master in the game ) ) know that sometimes "Hokey religions and ancient fossils are no match for a good blaster at your side" even if said fossil is a "more elegant weapon from a more civilized age".

Elegance and finesse are great, but sometimes raw power fits the job better after all.

Hey all, I found this out my second time through the game. The first time I used the speed + slash away method, but that took several repetitions and I would forget to back up by the time the shield came back up. So, the second time around, I just turned on speed and did the roll stab, doesn't particularly matter which style, as long as it connects. One stab was usually enough to dismantle the droid into its components. Oh, and this was on Jedi difficulty, so I dunno if they have more HP or whatever on higher difficulties.

Just time it right, a single roll+stab will kill a full health assassin droid.

In the room with 4 of them, I chucked a few detonators in there, if you get enough in there before they start leaving the room, you can maybe get 2 of them.

But yeah, always choose a DEMP gun. One of the most versatile but underused/rated weapons. And considering you can pick up many other weapons from any common enemy, why not take a DEMP? They come in handy often enough.

The ruin droid enemies, good on heavy troopers as well - and can even stun a standard Rancor (haven't tried the mutated one)!


I don't like quake, never liked quake, and don't like Star Wars quake. So basically jk2mp.exe never gets used on my computer.

Shaving is not a high priority with Jedi. Would you want to shave with a lightsaber?

This is the one with the assassin droids right? You have to kill them, then the misson will end automatically.

This is one of the few times you should listen to the mission briefing. As you'll be facing droids the DEMP2 is useful. Two rounds into each droid should do the trick.

The one time I tried to close with one of these guys I got a nasty shock - the DEMP2 is pretty essential IMHO

I suspect other people on the other thread regarding this mission have already mentioned this, but its a few pages down in the forums, so I'll save you the trouble looking for it. If you didn't bring along the demp, don't worry. Turn on speed when their shields go down, run, and do the rolling stab with forward + crouch + primary attack. One should be enough to kill each. If you can't do the stab, just use your saber and slice once or twice. Any more slices and you won't run away in time to avoid its shield turning back on.

Let me sum up what I've seen

(no particular order)

#1: DEMP - what it exists for
#2: DET Packs - make sure shield is down
#3: TDet's
#4: Force Lightning - for you DarkSiders!
#5: Speed & Saber - make sure you are close, hit fast, and get out.

> Saber techniques:
- Lots o'swings
- Throw - just make sure it doesn't get trapped in the shield
- 'Fast' lunge
- Rolling Stab
