[JO] Idiotic Half-Droid *innocent smile*

Game: Jedi Outcast
Level: Doomsgiver Shields
Problem: Galak

Well, as the topic suggests, the Idiotic Half-Droid is beating me. Time and time again. I saw a walk through that said to

spoiler:
Use the Imperial Repeater secondary fire to take down the shields then primary fire to take him out


I get the shields down but I can seem to take him out and then of course the shield returns.

And as a side point, due to great positioning of large health and large shields, I start facing Galak with 100 Health and 90 Shield. Except 10 seconds into the battle I have no shield.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh and I tried throwing my Saber at him, but he just knocked it to the ground

Ah, Galak ... nice tense battle - don't feel bad, it is a tough one, and I still enjoy it quite a bit ...

First, in the cutscene, note not only do they show you the shield going up, but also a red antenna-thing that looks like what you just destroyed on the walls. Get the picture? I'll hide the answer
spoiler:
You have to knock down the shield, then destroy the antenna, THEN take him on for real.


Also, note the beams around the room. Make use of them, they are an easy jump, and will block shots for a bit (until he destroys them). I have played with the saber, or with guns - using the secondary repeater then the primary is a good strategy.

Thanks I hadn't seen the antenna I'll keep at it, once I get the time again lol.

Anyway of avoiding the almost instantaneous shield depletion?

I assume you mean your shield? MOVE! Really - he can take you down pretty quickly if you are an easy target. You have to keep on the move, and use cover - he can't blow up the columns, just the cross-beams.

At a time in the game where your saber and force powers are cutting through legions of stormies like butter, it is nice to hit a run-n-gun challenge ...

Using the beams is an effective tactic.

An alternative would be to use force speed whilst strafing around Galak, using secondary fire on the Golan Arms.

Absolutely use force speed - you're at level 3 now, and can just move about pumping 2nd-ary fire at him from the Golan or the Repeater or whatever.

I actually found using the Blaster Rifle to take out his little antenna/shield thing is easier... Call me weird, but it works

My recommendation for when you find you really need to cheat is to use an invulnerability cheat and save before starting the battle. That way you can work on destroying him and then disable the cheat and then, if you want, go back and beat him without cheats.

ok I was trying to do it without cheating, but if I play many more times and don't do it, I think I might have to. Thanks people
