This FAQ is copyright work of Paul Richardson AKA Droideka44
This is my first FAQ for a game that I love I will cover anything
About this great game named Star Wars Battlefront II



1. What's Star Wars Battlefront 2?
Star Wars Battlefront 2 is the sequel of the famous star wars game Battlefront
A game where you can revive the good old battles of most SW movies,you can
play it in FPS ou Third Person Shooter.

2. FPS and 3rd Person Mode?
Firstly you have to choose between FPS or Third Person, in FPS it plays like
a halo game, in 3rd it plays most like Syphon Filter/GTA style of controls.
However they are only different in the camera, because third person camera acts
like if it were a FPS game.

3. Which mode is the best? FPS or 3rd?
 It depends, levels like Geonosis are not very good for FPS, because the level
is open ended so you will be lost in FPS, in closed walls levels such as Jabba's
palace, FPS is recommended, but it's not a rule, you can choose them as freely.

4. Is it true that you can play as Darth Vader in the game?
 Yes it is, from what I know, this is the second game where you can control
Darth Vader, the first one was Revenge of The Sith (multiplatform).
Not only you can play as him you can play as

Luke Skywalker
Obi Wan Kenobi
Han Solo
Ki Adhi Mundi
Aayala Secura
Anakin Skywalker
Darth Vader
Darth Maul
Darth Sidious (Emperor)
Generla Grievous
Count Dooku
Jango Fett

5. How can I play with them?
You can play as them in instant action, however, they are not unlocked at first
You have to go to the instant action > options > hero and put the minimal rec
for each field for them to be already avaiable, then you can choose a level and
the characters are there. However, Mos Eisley > Assault they are all playable
from the start, but they will only fight each other, so no heroes in the same
level with the soldiers, so only Heroes vs Villains.
If not going on the options you have to collect 20 points to unlock the heroes.

6. How do I unlock the shadow characters in the games?
Magna Guard
Bothan Spy
Clone Commander
Jet Trooper
Dark Trooper
Imperial Officer
Wookie Warrior 
These characters need you to collect a certain # of points to unlock them.
Sadly, once unlocked they will only be there for a match, so if you restart
they won't be there anymore... sad that Droideka, Jet Trooper and Dark trooper
were my favorite

7. How do you get those points?
Well, you get 1 point per kill, so you will have to kill 12 soldiers to unlock.
However, the heroes and villains don't get points, you have to get points
using the infantry

8. Are they really the important to unlock?
Well, Droideka, Jet Trooper and Clone Commander are worthy unlocking.
The rest are only good to unlock if you are fan of them or planning to use them

9. Who's the most powerful character in the game?
Clone Commander and Droideka are arguably the best characters in the game.
Clone Commander the purple clone with a skirt is the slowest of the clones
However, his main weapon not only is infinite but very powerful, even though
you need to wait the weapon to underheat.
Droideka is the best too, has infinite ammo and his shield makes him 
invunerable for 20~30 seconds, however, without the shield, even in his full
health he can die with one simple shot. and he is slow as helll

10. Who is the most powerful jedi in the game?
Darth Vader is the strongest jedi in the game, even though slow, he is very
powerful and good at destroying other heroes and infantry.
Grievous and Maul are other good ones.

11. Who is the worst jedi?
Except for Luke, Obi Wan and Windu, the heroes of heroes team are very weak.
But Aayla Secura has double swords and Mundi can throw lightsabers, other than
that, I would not use these two at all.

12. What about Jango/Boba?
They are for the same part the same character, though their jets are more
powerful than Jet/Dark Trooper, their lack of good weapons is bad.
Their flamethrower are unstoppable if you stop pressing the button, they will
continue flamethrowering, and their weapons overheat quickly.

13. What about Leia and Han Solo?
There is no reason to play as them unless you are a fan of one of them or both.
Han Solo lacks weapons, overheats quickly and his second weapon, fusion cutter
is useful for nothing in Mos Eisley > Assault. Leia has a lifebonus and only one
weapon.... If you want Soldiers, go play as Jango or Boba

14. What about Count Dooku?
Count Dooku is SLOW, I expected more from this character, also he is one of my
faves, if he wasn't one of my faves, I wouldn't use him, he plays exactly like
Mace Windu

15. Yoda?
Yoda is cool to control he is the fastest of the jedi, but difficult to control.
He does lots of different jedi moves in one single press, but his size is good
for big characters like Vader.

16. Chewbacca?
Chewbacca in terms of weapons is bad, he is the one who can take the most dagame
But his weapon bowcaster wastes a long time, however, his guided rocket is one
of a kind, you will control the rock once you press the button, chew will
be totally vulnerable and the rocket is hard to control... skip chew

17. So the heroes will die?
Well, They will automatically die if you stop killing people, if you are 5 mins
without killig one, you may die, "character has fled".
A funny moment was when I was approaching a soldier to kill him, but when I
got closer to him I diead lol. this feature is very bad in levels as Geonosis or
Hoth where you need to walk to find someone to kill..

19. What levels are in the game?
The same as the first battlefront, tho Rhen Var and Bespion are not in the game.
But Mustafar, Jabba's palace, Coruscant, Felucia, Mygeeto, Polis Massa, Utapau
and Tantive IV.

20. Why were Bespin and Rhen Var removed?
Probably because Bespin platforms were very similar to Kamino... about Rhen Var?
Rhen Var may be gone because it was similar to Kashyyyk, Hoth and Polis Massa

21. What's the level per movie

Coruscant = I II III VI
Dagoba = III V VI
Endor = VI
Felucia = III
Genososis = II
Hoth = V
Jabba's Pallace = VI
Kashyyk = III
Mustafar = III
Mygeeto = III
Naboo = II III VI
Polis Massa = III
Tatooine = I II III IV VI
Utapau  = III

22. Are there secret levels?
No, Everything is unlocked by default

23. In which levens are the characters in?

Luke Skywalker = Jabba's, Coruscant, Death Star, Hoth, Mygeeto
Obi Wan = Utapau, Naboo, Mos Eisley, Kamino, Mustafar, Death Star
Yoda = Dagobah, Kashyyyk, Polis Massa, Tantive IV
Han Solo = Utapau, Mos Eisley, Kamino, Endor
Leia = Naboo, Polis Massa, Tantive IV, 
Chewbacca = Felucia, Kashyyyk, Yavin 4
Anakin Skywalker = Mustafar
Darth Vader = Dagobah, Endor, Hoth, Tantive IV
Darth Maul = Coruscant,Palace, Mos Eisley, Mustafar,Naboo, Polis Massa,T&YIV
Darth Sidious = Coruscant, Death Star, Naboo, Polis Massa
Count Dooku = Geonosis
Jango Fett = Kaskyyk, Kamino, Felucia, 
Boba Fett = Felucia, Jabba's, Kamino, Kashyyyk, Mos Eisley, Mygeeto, Utapau,Y4

As you see, the one with the most levels is Darth Maul, while sadly, Dooku
is only in Geonosis....

24. Can you now mix the teams?
Not yet, you still can't CIS vs Empire, Rebels vs Republic etc, so you will
basicly choose the arena then the teams will be predefine.. sad

25. Are there space combats?
Yes, some levels have space combats, however they only differ in backgrounds
and ships, the space combats are almost the same, you can't battle in the
death star... but you will fly seeing the Tantive IV and other motherships

26. Are they difficult?
But you'll get used to fast, the space levens can get you dizzy a bit,
but you can customize the controls

27. Which ships are in Space Combat?
X-wing, Y-wing, A-wing, V-wing, Tie fighter, tie-interceptor, tie-advance2x;
CIS Bomber, and many others.

28. The weapons are in the game? 
Here I will list the weapons in the game,

::: Fusion Cutter :::
These serve to fix turrets, weapons and vehicles.

::: Auto-Turret :::
The soldier creats a small techball who fire lasers automatically
You have no control against it

::: Detpack :::
Mines that you choose when to explode, no limit time, but L1 button won't
be avaiable until you explode the mine

::: Thermal Detonators :::
A bomb that explodes according to the amout of people/enemies around the bomb

::: Jet :::
Jet/Dark trooper have the jet, as well as Boba and Jango have it to,
However, Jango/Boba the Jett lasts longer and go longer.
Press X to fly

::: Shield Emitter :::
Only Droideka has this mode, a energy ball covers droideka making shots
impossible to attack Droideka. In BF1 it used to be vulnerable to bombs.
Infinite, but you have to wait to recharge

::: Recon Droid :::
A small droid that can fly around the place and shoots. 
But a single hit from the weakest weapon it is dead.

::: Chain Gun :::
Weapon only used by purple skirted Clone Commander.
I love this weapon, it's infinite, but overheats, lots of bullets per second
Kills SuperBattleDroids quickly

::: Command Pistol :::
Simple pistol for those who don't wanna waste time, but not the best

::: Rocket Launcher :::
Powerful, but slow and the enemy can dodge it easily, good though.

::: Blaster Rifle :::
A blast of laser attacks the enemy, however, only recommended against
enemies with already low health

::: EMP Launcher :::
Launches bombs by a weapon

::: Wrist Rocket :::
Powerful but easily dodgeable, aim very carefully.
Only by Super Battle Droid

::: Trishot :::
Three basic but fast shots against the enemies
Super Battle Droid Only

::: Shotgun :::
Powerful and semislow weapon, but very efficiente

::: Bulldog RLR :::
Powerful but slow and not very efficiente, BUT POWERFUL.
Used only by MagnaGuard;

::: Repeating Blasters :::
Droideka's input weapon, requires too much shots but with shield emitter
you're safe.

::: Wrist Blaster :::
Basic shots against enemies, nothing more

::: Grenade Launcher :::
Launches grenades.... nuff said

::: Incinerator :::
Only used by Bothan Spy, like a chaingun but the enemy disappears.

::: Bowcaster :::
Chewbacca's weapon, one of the worst weapons in the game.
Slow and not efficient

::: Stealth :::
By Bothan Spy, you became invisible

::: Regenerator :::
Energy recovers slowly

::: Time Bomb :::
I guess it's a time based bomb...

Well, let's stop from lists for some more questions

30. What did you find missing in the game?
Old Obi Wan is not in the game and the death star space is not in too

31. Is Grievous vehicle from the movie in?
Sadly not, Grievous can hardly enter in vehicles

32. How can I get infinite time for Jedi?
You can't except in Mos Eisley Assault where you have infinite time
for jedi...

33. Do Jedi play like in KOTOR?
No. they play more like Revenge Of The Sith from PS2 game.

34. How do I get Droidekas and shadow characters forever?
You can't, you have to collect points everytime you play

35. Can you play as the NPCs of BF1
Yes, You can now play as Ewoks, Gungans, Wookies, Geonosians, Wampas,
Jawas and Tuska using the hunt modes

Ewoks = Endor
Geonosians = Geonosis
Jawas = Tatooine
Tusken = Tatooine
Wampas = Hoth
Gungan = Naboo
Wookie = Kashyyyk

36. What are the description of the levels?

Coruscant - closed level, but big,

Dagoba - Swampy world, similar level like Yavin, opened

Endor - Cool open forest level, opened

Felucia - colorful world with flower, but confusing, opened

Geonosis - considered the hot equivalent of hoth, is my fave.Opened

Hoth - Icy level with the awesome ATs to control. Opened,

Jabba's palace - Closed and dark level with lots of easter eggs, 
jabba himself is here, you can't kill him though, there are monsters who can
kill you though

Kashyyyk - No more Kashyyyk docks, we have this stage that looks like a beach.

Mustafar - The fire planet where Obi Wan fought Anakin, though you can't walk
on the rocks of the surface. Semi-closed.

Mygeeto - Ruins of a war destroyed city, very cool, has cool turrets and the
first model of AT-STs

Naboo - The closed level where SBD fight Gungans. It takes time to get used.
But it's a simple designed level

Polis Massa - Closed level, I hate this level the most, it is boring

Tatooine (Mos Eisley) - The coolest level in the game, mix of closed and opened
levle, and plays songs in Tatooineans there hehehehe

Utapau - the stage where Obi Wan fought Grievous, one of my faves

37. What are the modes of gameplay

Training moode - train how to play the game, irrelevant if you know how to
play battlefront 2, skip this part it is useless

Space Overview - Just a tutorial on the space combats.

Rise Of The Empire - This is the campaign mode of BF2, unlike the first BF,
you have missions to do instead of just capturing the command posts.
Walkthroug is irrelevant since the game says what you have to do

Galactic Conquest - a rehashed version of GC of the first BF, now you can choose
more freely the planets, though the missions are the same....

Conquest > You have to do the same normal missions, such as capturing the
command posts

Hunt > You have to play as a soldier or as a native species, you have to kill
your hunter

Capture The Flag > It was a online only mode in BF1 that now is offline so
now the players can simulate a online game hehe. You have to get the flag then
bring the flag to your place... I found this very kiddish and boring.

Assault > In Mos Eisley, all heroes fight each other, of course, only
heroes vs villains.

Finally you can choose the # of spawns in the game, in the original you have
250, you now have 750(500%) lives, and in assault mode you can
define from 180 to 1000 kill to win the game.
You can also set te team, set 0 and you will be alone in the arena

36. How do I capture command posts?
You can capture the command posts by staying around and seeying the bar filling
up in blue... one in Red is the enemy. it gets less red and more blue

37. What are the vehicles in the game....
The most famous vehicles in the game are here

AT-AT = The enormous and slow from Hoth (V) is here, though it is boring
to control them because they are slow, and now there is only one position 

AT-ST = They are always fun to control, though they break easily, it is
sure fun... has 2 weapons 

AT-TE = Even though they are just as big as AT-ATs, they are "slightly" faster,
but they take a time to reload their weapons... GEONOSIS

Spider Walker = Found on Geonosis, they are little to slow but manages to fight
AT-TE very well

Hailfire Droid = 
Very fast and fun, but they don't do much damage against the
powerful AT-TE and are better for killing ground opponents. 
It overheats quickly.

Armored Tank Droid 
Very resistant and fast and quite difficulty to destroy
But a very fun vehicle to control

AT-RT = A small version of AT-ST, 
It's faster and you can see the one controlling it.

Combat Speeder - The little vehicle is very hand for ground enemies

Trade Federation Armored Assault Tank - Okey, they are a little annoying
to control and they remain the same from Battlefront I.

Speeder Bike - Fast and difficulty to kill with JEDI

STAP - I need to do a little more test on this one, I am gonna put it in thext 



CIS Strike Bomber
Rebel Assault Transport
Sentinal Class Shuttle
Tie Bomber
TIE Intercepter
TIE Fighter

HMP Guship
Strike Bomber

In the next update I am going to include the descriptions for the ships above

38. What about the cheats?
Well, this has been discussed in GAMEFAQS Message boards, some say they work,
some say the don't.
However, they do indeed work. You need to press one button
at once and not go thrashing the controller to get it done....
Here are the cheats

up, up, up, left, down, down, down, left, up, up, up, left, right

Infinite Ammo
up, down, left, down, down, left, down, down, left, down, down, down left right

Well this is it, if you have more questions, you can send me an email with
the doubt
