[/I. Introduction/]
Note: As you know, this is a full walkthrough for the single-player portion 
Republic Commando, for the Xbox console, on normal difficulty. This is a
guide designed to get you through to the end to the best of the advice that 
can offer here.


-	Education of controls is essential. Note that the following will be based
with default control settings, and that this is only to educate you about 
functions open to you, and not so much as where the buttons are mapped, as
you can change those yourself!

LEFT THUMBSTICK: Move/Strafe (click and hold to crouch)
RIGHT THUMBSTICK: Aim/Move camera (click to zoom w/some weapons)
A: Use/Activate/Pickup
X: Reload
Y: Jump
B: Melee attack
LEFT TRIGGER: Throw detonator
WHITE BUTTON: Cycle visor mode
RIGHT TRIGGER: Fire weapon/turret
BLACK BUTTON: Cycle detonator types
BACK BUTTON: Show objective text/Show multiplayer scores

DIRECTIONAL PAD - Squad Commands (initiated by holding A and pressing
appropriate direction on pad.

UP: Secure area
DOWN: Cancel maneuver
LEFT: Search and destroy
RIGHT: Form up

DIRECTIONAL PAD - Switch weapons
UP: Blaster Rifle
DOWN: Secondary weapon (press twice w/secondary weapon to access default
LEFT: Anti-armor attachment
RIGHT: Sniper attachment

+Delta Squad and commands

-	Delta Squad consists of yourself and four other Commandos, each that
apparently have their own roles to play. However, in reality, all Commandos
have the same abilities.
-	It is important to also remember that there are two ways Delta Squad takes
orders: these are from your primary four orders, and then numerous maneuvers
that you direct a Commando to; the Commando will perform an action from
there, often using the terrain to his advantage, such as cover for sniping.

[Search and Destroy] Order that causes your squad to go forward
without you. They seek enemies, take cover, and will move faster,
but will only use the Blaster Rifle. Good to use if you want to
rush through an area with weaker enemies like: Genosian warriors,
Drone droids, and regular Trandoshans.

[Form Up] Order that immediately stops the Squad from where they
are going and what they are doing, and brings them back to you.
Your squad will follow your lead and will not stray far from you or
the others. Formation will be taken for maximum combat efficiency.
This is the order you'll be using most. It's especially great if
you're surrounded.

[Secure Area] By aiming your view towards an area, and giving this
order, your Commandos will head to the area marked and stay there,
making sure it is clear from all enemies in the meantime. This
order can give you some strategic options, for example: Say two
Commandos are taking up sniping positions, and you're watching the
entrance from the north. No one is watching the rear entrance, so
you commando that Commando to secure area of rear position.

[Cancel Maneuver] This order cancels the actual maneuvers performed
in the field, rather than the orders listed above. When given,
Commandos will stop what they are doing and follow one of the three
primary orders.

Individual orders:
[Anti-armor position] This order, while very uncommon, is essential
for surviving future battles with larger enemies that fit the bill.
One Commando uses his anti-armor attachment on nearby enemies. You
and other Commandos must beware to stay away from his firing range,
as the splash damage can be lethal.

[Construct Trap] A common order that orders a Commando to set a
proximity explosive on an explosive barrel. While you can see the
area of proximity, it will not go off if you step near it, only
enemies will set it off. It will still explode if you shoot it,

[Demolition Position] Orders a Commando to set a demolition charge.
Either on something critical to the mission objective, something
obstructing passage, or a Droid dispenser.

[Disarm Landmine] When giving this order, try to make sure that
neither you nor another Commando come in that Commando's disarming
range. It may be okay for you to crouch-walk over to him, but the
other Commandos may not crouch-walk and that will set off the mine.

[Door Breach] The most common of orders. Instead of slicing the
console next to a door by yourself, you can have your squad
initiate a formation: one sets charge on the door, two right on the
side of the door, out of sight. As soon as the door open, the
appropriate grenade is thrown through. Delta Squad then runs in to
take care of business. Very cool to watch!

[Grenade Position] Like the anti-armor position from before, you
must be careful around the Commando while he is doing this. Two of
the four detonators (grenades) you have access to are used: thermal
and ECD. You don't want to get hit by either. This is more common
than anti-armor, and in fact, the second best thing for those
enemies I mentioned earlier. It's also great for clearing out
groups of enemies.

[Revive Ally] This is something you will be doing, too. As you go
on, you'll find that from time to time, you and your squad may just
get an ass kicking. A fallen Commando is marked by a red icon.
Stand over him and press and hold A. Do not release A until you see
the bar in the middle of the screen form a complete circle and then
make a distinct sound. As a Commando rises, he is temporarily
invulnerable to enemy fire. A Commando, as well as yourself, only
revives with 50% of their normal health. If YOU are killed...

-	Maintain current orders: Commandos will maintain current commands. Usually
this means that they will clear the area before reviving you. A good idea if
everyone is in good shape still, as they may be killed while trying to
revive you!
-	Recall and revive: This makes their highest priority to be reviving you,
no matter what. This is the quickest way to get back into action, but also 
most riskiest.
-	Load saved game: A no-brainer.

[Slice Console] Used to accomplish objectives, open doors, etc.
Your Commando is vulnerable while slicing - he will try to
accomplish the task so long as he is a) alive and b) Still ordered
to do so.

[Sniping Position] Not only one of the most common maneuvers, but
also the most useful. When sniping, a Commando will use the sniping
attachment - meaning you will get it before you can use this. A
commando will take cover behind something and snipe with pinpoint
accuracy for five shots before a reload. This is good for
supporting fire, but never have a Commando sniping where he can
easily be flanked, unless you protect him yourself.

[Use Bacta] The only way to heal your squad! Bacta canisters are
strewn throughout the game, but it is important to remember that
your squad needs healing, too. There is an infinite amount of
Bacta, so use as often as possible.

[Use Turret] When a Commando is using a turret, make sure to watch
out for him, as it's not uncommon for enemies to rush at him and
attack him in the turret, while he can do little from that close

-	This is a brief overview of the weapons available to you.

[DC-17 Blaster Rifle] The default weapon. Completely average and
can eventually get the job done in just about any situation. While
it contains a large ammo capacity, second only to the Trandoshan
minigun, the shots are relatively weak. However, it is accurate and
you can zoom down the barrel for better accuracy and ammo is always
around for this weapon.

[DC-17 Sniper Attachment] Yes, they have sniper rifles in the Star
Wars universe. This isn't your daddy's sniper rifle, though. It
just looks freaking awesome, to complement it's high power. This
does major damage to anything, but usually your more fleshy
adversaries go down after a single shot from this. Make sure to aim
for the head. Five shots, uncommon ammo pickups, and slow fire can
make this discouraging to impatient players.

[DC-17 Anti-Armor Attachment] This is the heavy-duty stuff. Only
pull this out when you REALLY need it. Ammo is so rare for this
weapon that you may want to reload your game if you accidentally
fired off a shot. It's critical about near the middle of the game,
invaluable against the larger Droids, especially when you face them
in numbers. At four shots, you can clear out about a dozen Super
Battle Droids (SBDs), or cut a boss enemy's health in half. Also
beware that it lops - it is NOT a rocket launcher! It's more like a
grenade launcher, and you must be at a fairly medium to close
distance in order to use it, but try not to hurt yourself.

[Bryar Pistol] Use this as a complete last resort, and I mean last
resort. You'd actually do much more damage going up to an enemy and
hitting him with your Vibroshiv, and the weapon's melee attack is
very weak anyways. While you have infinite ammo for this weapon
that is considered your primary and permanent secondary weapon, the
bar you see on the gun shows how many shots can be fired before it
stops and has to refill. It's actually pretty accurate, and you can
land headshots. If you want to play around, or just don't want to
waste Blaster Rifle ammo on the regular Droids, though, feel free
to use often on them.

[Geonosian Elite Beam Emitter] This is a weird weapon that is
actually pretty creepy, but annoying when used against you. It
fires a stream of energy that has excellent range and damage at any
distance. The ammo capacity is limited, and you can tell how much
juice you have left by looking on one of the little orange bars on
the gun. It's a great weapon for mowing down crowds of weaker
enemies, it just actually takes a few too many seconds to safely
activate, so make sure you know when and where to point it. You'll
have to get a new weapon once it is out of juice.

[Trandoshan Shotgun] An excellent close range weapon. It's like a
shotgun but actually fires energy? At any rate, it's better than
most modern shotguns and fires pretty fast. You can only get these
around Trandoshans. It doesn't have a large ammo capacity and is
pretty useless at a distance, but otherwise ammo is pretty

[Trandoshan Minigun] This is a great heavy weapon. While you have
to pry it from the cold, dead fingers of the toughest of
Trandoshans, it's worth it. It features a large ammo capacity and
clip size, the largest, in fact, and it has an incredibly high fire
rate, while shots, especially headshots, can drop enemies within a
few shots. There is no better weapon for clearing a room and
feeling completely awesome as you just stand there and spray. Not
that you will move slowly while using this weapon.

[Trandoshan Concussion Rifle] The Concussion Rifle is pretty rare...
not really that useful. It's great for stunning enemies and good on
Droids, but you rarely ever find ammo for this weapon, so make
those 5 to 10 shots count.

[Trandoshan Submachine Gun] At a certain point in the game, this
weapon is everywhere! However, I find it to be one of the least
effective weapons in the game. SMGs are usually appealing, but not
here. It is highly inaccurate, consumes a lot of ammo, and
effective only at shotgun range... and so despite the ammo abundance,
why bother, unless it's the only thing left to use?

[Wookie Bowcaster] This is kind of rare, but you're not missing out
on much. It's a great alternative to your sniper attachment - it
has the same level of zoom as the sniper attachment, can be
charged, and ricochets off wall. Actually, what am I saying? This
is a great weapon!

[Wookie Rocket Launcher] Talk about a weapon. This is your boss
killer right here. It's incredibly rare and you only get it a few
times near the end of the game, but save your shots. It is the most
powerful weapon in the game. It's rockets are capable of homing,
but I recommend not using this because it wastes all your ammo in
trade of a really, really killer shot. It's up to you. It should go
without saying that you watch where you point this weapon.

[Thermal Detonator] Your Star Wars fragmentation grenade. Bounces,
has a nice and fiery explosion radius. Great for weaker droids but
organic enemies in particular. Ammo is very abundant for this

[Sonic Detonator] This works like a proximity grenade. It can stick
to walls or floors. It is more powerful than a thermal detonator
and is thus good for Droids, provided you are out of ECDs.
Detonation is instant upon contact with something moving, and the
explosion radius is large.

[Electronics Counter Detonator] AKA "ECD" detonator. Your best
weapon against the droids. It can stun you, other organics, and
your squad. These stun droids, but also kills them. It will not
kill you and other organics.

[Flash Detonator] This is self-explanatory and will only work on
organic enemies. This will stun them and leave them open for cannon
fodder duty. However, you can also impair your own vision if this
goes off near you. This won't harm you or anyone else, though.

[Vibroshiv] This is your most powerful... melee attack. It kills most
organics and one to two hits, and can take about a handful to two
handfuls to kill a droid. You need to be right next to an enemy for
this, but watch out, because some enemies have their own attacks.

+ Enemies
-	Overview of enemies experienced in the game.

Droids: They come in seven flavors and are the most common enemy
throughout the game, and for six of the droid types, are probably
your most deadliest!

[Battle Droids] I like to call these "Drones". They are
unintelligent and usually just stand and shoot a few weak shots.
They go down quickly, which is why against a small group, maybe 1
to 4, I recommend just using the Bryar pistol. Depending on the
distance, use your vibroshiv instead. Sometimes they are
concentrated into large numbers, and in that case, they can be
troublesome, so make sure they get a grenade or a spray of fire.

[Super Battle Droids] AKA SBDs. Probably the toughest common enemy
you'll run into. There is nothing worse than running into a room
full of these guys, especially if they keep coming out of a Droid
dispenser. Their real only weakness is their lack of mobility. They
take a lot of damage, and deflect explosives thrown in front of
them, and can dish out heavy damage up close and far. They're
easier to take down with all of your squad, but alone, you'll want
to use everything at your disposal to take them down. This also
means getting near them and using your melee: hit once, retreat
from the range of their melee attack, attack again, retreat... repeat
until dead. Probably the safest way to deal with them, provided
you're not around a lot of them. This gets them to stop shooting at

[Droidka] These guys are intimidating. They roll into rooms rather
quickly, and I found instant death a number of times when they took
me by surprise, as that initial fire after they get up from their
roll, is deadliest. They are surrounded by shields and these must
be damaged enough to where they disappear, before you can damage
and destroy the droid. The best way to deal with them, if they're
within the right distance, is to run next to one, really close, and
keep stabbing it. You won't take any damage from the Droidka, but
maybe from other enemies, if they are behind you.

[Scavenger Droid] These guys are a pain. They're the second
airborne enemy you fight. They go down quickly, but require some
accuracy. They like to either latch onto your face or drain your
shields and then do a kamikaze-dive-bomb at your head. You can
always tell they're around if your HUD becomes fuzzy and you hear

[Turret Droid] These are droids that are actually fixed to walls.
These are usually found in the Assault Ship. They deal a lot of
damage. If you fight one face to face, you're probably going to
lose, or at least take a lot of damage. Use hit and run tactics,
and it will take about half a single clip of a Blaster Rifle to
down one. I personally like to kill them in one shot with my sniper

[Spider Droid] The biggest Droids. Slow, but packing incredible
firepower. Expect one of these when you enter a large room, but
there are a few instances when you run into one at arm's reach.
Whatever you do, don't get too close. Also watch out for that red
light, which is what it uses to "see" you. You can usually strafe
around this Droid and chip away for a while, because it is very
slow. Unfortunately, it is often accompanied by other enemies, so
that can keep you busy. You should focus on killing this first.

[Assassin Droid] Probably the deadliest Droids, thanks to the fact
that they have power, speed, and mobility, as well as intelligence.
These guys are really hard to hit and you don't want to go toe to
toe with one. Very rare, and you'll only see them on Kashyyyk.
Wookies are good to have around when up against these guys.
Terminate with extreme prejudice.

[Droid Dispensers] I thought these deserved a category of their own.
Droid Dispensers produce an infinite amount of various droids...
from your basic droids to droidkas. They are typically destroyed
with a detonator charge. My advice, especially during some parts on
the assault ship later in the game, is to send an ally to place the
charge and cover him from there. They should always be priority targets.

Geonosians: You'll run into these throughout the game, but after
Geonosis, not nearly as much. They're just man-sized bugs.

[Geonosis Warrior] The standard Geonosian opposition. They are
pretty nimble characters and like to get close and stab you with
their staff. Well, you can stab them, too, and your stab hurts them
a helluva lot more - in fact, kills them in one hit. Other than
that, use nothing more or less than a Blaster Rifle to kill.

[Geonosis Elite] These guys are always in the air, firing their
beam weapon. They're also a lot harder to kill than the Warrior.
Always keep moving and spray them with Blaster Rifle fire or snipe
them down.

[Geonosian Hatchling] You'll run into them around what can be
described as egg sacks, usually hanging from the ceiling. They like
to drop down as you are walking along and attack in numbers. Weak,
but difficult to kill, since their lairs are occupied with other

Trandoshans: It's everyone's favorite reptilian alien!
These guys become a real pain on the Assault Ship, but hold more
ground in Kashyyyk. Either way, you're going to be seeing them a

[Regular Trandoshans] These guys are fairly small, equipped with
Trandoshan shotguns and/or dual blades. When they're out of ammo,
they like to rush at you and try to cut you. This can cause a fair
deal of damage, so hit them first - melee or BR fire. Sometimes
they will just have these blades, so make them your highest
priority to take down before they get close.

[Trandoshan Mercenaries] These Trandoshans are outfitted and are
smarter than other Trandoshans. They love to lie in wait from any
direction, be it around a corner or dropping in from the ceiling.
They usually pack submachine guns - if they had shotguns, they
would be pretty dangerous, seeing as you run into them at a fairly
close range with their surprise attacks.

[Trandoshan Minigunner] These guys are huge and can kill you within
a few seconds. Cover is a MUST, unless you get up close and melee.
Use the same strategy I mentioned earlier with the SBDs if you
attack him with melee. You run into just one at a time, and not
very often, but usually at a close range or in a small room.

+Extra Tips
- It is off to the last save point for you, if you fall of a ledge.
No reviving for that sort of thing.
- Recommend you disable "Auto Pull". Auto Pull causes your
Commandos to abandon their positions, say, sniping position, if you
move a certain distance. This way, your squad can cover you while
you take a look around or accomplish an objective.
- Never fight alone unless you have no other choice. When fighting
alone, in relation to the flow of the game, remember you have only
one life.
- Remember you can save/load at anytime! So always save - this
doesn't work like other games where you can save but still restart
at the last checkpoint or beginning of the level - you start off
right where you left off when using this save system.
- Press A while looking at an enemy to get your squad to focus on
him. The enemies life bar will also be shown on your screen, with a
lock-on indicating this was successful.
- Levels are split up into sections as you will see in my
walkthrough below, I have labeled them. To get full health and ammo
at the start of each section instead of continuing where you left
off, exit after each section to the main menu and load to the part
you just got to from the Campaign screen.
- If a Commando is not responding to your orders, they are plagued
by a glitch in this game which causes a Commando to get "stuck".
This did not happen very often to me in the Xbox version, but when
it does, you have two options:
1)Kill the Commando and revive him. Most of the time this works to
get things going again.
2)Load previous save; if you haven't saved recently, just move on.

[\III. Walkthrough\]
<|- Geonosis

Extreme Prejudice:
There are some scripted sequences here, so don't be surprised about what
happens to you or others, just get to the Bacta. Get familiar with the feel 
things, including letting off a few test shots on the Battle Droids you
encounter. When you come to the Geonosian turret, you'll have to destroy it
with a thermal detonator. The hatch is open, so try and bounce the grenade 
of that and down the chute to accomplish the objective. Not far from here, 
meet 62, but we'll call him "Scorch" from now on. Either of you can place a
detonator on the wall. Since this is your first time, watch the timer, and 
mindful of this in the future - for some objects, the detonator is longer 
the initial 10 seconds. When you are going to detonate it, stand away. You
only have to look towards it and press A to detonate it.

In the spire, you will meet up with 40, or "Fixer". Delta Squad is almost
complete. You're probably wondering why you cannot give orders yet? Well,
you get 07, you will, so just wait a little longer.
There are numerous Warriors in the hangar up ahead. Once cleared, set the
detonator and carry on, enabling your low light visor mode in here, to see.
You can avoid the Droids if you wish. Upon exiting, at the next area, you 
meet 07, or "Sev". Now that Delta Squad is together, you're ready for
Though that window you must shoot through, lies an Super Battle Droid (SBD).
Dealing with SBDs can be difficult, even just one. Although it's normal fire
is formidable, it's the large shot you have to watch out for. You likely 
be put down from a single hit. You can see this one coming, though, by when
it kneels. At any rate, use cover and detonators, plus concentrated fire
(look at him and press A). Now it's time to chase after Sun Fak. Immediately
order Sev to the sniper position. Don't get antsy now and reload your save,
once he is at the position, everything is cool - he'll blow the ship right
out of the sky. Head to the lift to finish this.

Infiltrate the Droid Foundry:
Grab the sniper attachment ASAP. Use sparingly and only when you have to.
In the next area, you can choose to snipe the guys in the distance and start 
big fight here, or ignore them and move on. When you reach the jammer, you
cannot yet damage it. Instead, you need to slice the console at the other 
However, with enemies constantly coming, you can't do this alone, so form up
your squad and get on that console - or get someone else on it. Twenty 
is what is needed. Then you slap a det-pack on the jammer and it's boom 

Get two Commandos on sniping positions and the other should cover you. 
are here but you can ignore them, because your snipers will kill them and 
you the ammo and effort. Take their weapons, but use on droids, because it's
not as effective a weapon on the Geonosians themselves.
Send your Commando to place the det-pack but don't go in the room just yet.
There is a turret that can slaughter you and your team. This is where you 
to use your sniper attachment - if you go in the room to take cover, rather
than peeking out, do so - go on the left side with your squad. At any rate,
aim for the gunner's head. A single shot will kill, of course. Get in the
turret yourself and have your secure the area, or get someone in the turret
and do it for them. Once the wave of enemies stops, you and your squad may
proceed. Here, blow up this column in order to progress your infiltration
into the factory.

Destroy the Factory:
Dark and quiet, this place is teeming with SBDs. ECD grenades are your best
friends here, along with your vibroshiv, due to the fact that this is not a
very open area. Thermal detonators and any secondary weapon other than the
Bryar pistol happen to also work well, too. Slice every console you see to 
things like Bacta and ammunition.

The first conduit has SBDs that you can take down from the small window you
are looking out from, above them. Don't forget to duck. When they're 
destroy the conduit. The second conduit is accessed by slicing another
console. When you've destroyed the second conduit, do NOT backtrack,
as Droids are everywhere. Just press on and you'll find your way out

Advance to the Core Ship:
In this canyon, Geonosian Warriors lie in wait. This canyon is crawling with
them, as well as their Elite friends. Remember to pay attention to your
surroundings, also, as a retreat is sometimes needed. Here, your grenades 
be great for dealing with numerous enemies. The bugs are particularly
vulnerable to flash. Don't waste ammo; stab them when they're stunned!
When you come around the AA guns, do not go near. Listen to the advisor -
Look around and snipe the turrets on the wall.

Get a Commando to grenade position and ready an ECD grenade for the droids
coming around the barrier. Get everyone ready for a droid assault here. When
they're mopped up, inside the tower for you. Inside, you'll need destroy two
spots here to disable the AA gun. Send some Commandos to do the dirty work 
defend them instead. Afterall, it's not very fun setting charges. When 
done on, move on according to the advisor's directions. You'll find 
in here, and they keep coming until those consoles are sliced. Once the
windows are closed, go forward to other control rooms and do the same to 
Now, when that next detonator is set, make sure everyone is in a safe zone
before hitting it. From here, exit to the canyon.

At the drop ship, have someone on the turret. Another should take up sniping
position, and finally the last Commando should cover you. This is almost 
a game of cat and mouse... you're going to go out from this zone and lure
enemies back to you. This is especially important for the SBDs. When they've
been cleared, get your squad together. SBDs again - get someone on the anti-
armor position and use the open area to your advantage against them.

Ahead is a Spider Droid. I hope you've saved some thermals and most of your
ammo (about 3 shots) from your anti-armor attachment. Make sure your squad
takes advantage of these two things by setting them on positions there. When
it's finally down, the door to the Core Ship will soon be blown open.
I also hope you've saved some shots for your sniper attachment - it's the 
way to deal with the SBDs here. Now it's time to go solo...

Infiltrate the Core Ship:
There are numerous SBDs here, but they are mostly all offline. You will die
very quickly here if you are not careful and always aware of your
surroundings. Head right from the start and move towards the droid racks. 
away from SBDs on the racks as far as possible. The slightest touch will 
them to wake up. There is one SBD patrolling here, at the second rack. Don't
rush in there - there is a turret that will help to kill you. Instead, lure 
towards you, away from the turret and SBDs and use the melee trick.
Silly droids, aren't they? Then take out the droid turret.

Another turret here... it's behind you, really. If you have trouble finding
it, you may want to make a quicksave, run out to where you get attacked by a
Geonosian Elite, so take note. When you have dealt with these two - destroy
turret before you even encounter the bug - you're safe to set the charge.

Enter the vent and then exit into another control room. Weak droids here,
fortunately. It's time to give the ship a healthy dose of virus, then 
ignoring enemies as you get into the maintenance shaft. Standby SBDs 
not all of them are sleeping, right? Right, there is an active droid here, 
not as easy to lure towards as last time - your fire could alert other 
If that is the case, don't hesitate to use the anti-armor attachment on all 
them. At the right angle, you can destroy them all in these close quarters. 
you want to save it, use ECDs. Keep moving!

The ship is coming apart. This works to your advantage - watch as an 
takes out some droids. The large things you see dropping are droid 
they continuously spawn enemy droids, and in order to destroy them, you have
to set a 20 second charge. Ignore them until you get back with your squad.
Near the last two are Droidkas - you'd recognize them from the most recent
Star Wars movies. Don't waste ammo - get close and melee them to death.

Now that Delta Squad is together, you can take out those annoying 
Also keep in mind there is another spider droid waiting for you.

Put your Commandos in sniping positions to take care of the Elite Geonosians
that come after you when you start slicing the console. After this, make 
everyone is in a useful position to take out the spider droid, which you
engage in a fairly small room anyways. Focus on the Droidkas, let your squad
tackle the spider droid.

Upon getting off the lift, you'll see you have five minutes to get this 
In reality, four minutes - the console takes one minute. During this time, 
must also survive an endless wave of enemies, my favorites: Droidkas and 
Finally, you have to escape before it blows.

With that said, enter the room and form up your squad, moving everyone to 
console and taking out only anything in your path. Get someone on the 
and get ready to use everything at your disposal to defend that Commando for
one minute. When set, go and don't stop running. Only you need to survive 
make it out in order to accomplish this mission and move on.

<|- The Assault Ship

Ghost Ship Recon:
You're alone again. Although you don't know quite what to expect at this 
remember you must always be cautious, as you might not rendezvous with your
squad for some time.

Slice the terminal to access the blast door. Head up until you see a duct 
can crawl through. Low-light mode is helpful here. After the Clone Trooper's
death, bring out your Blaster Rifle and get ready for something completely
different... scavenger droids! You'll be running into a number of these
throughout the ship and you'll find later that they've helped to reduce this
ship's original population. See the Game Basics section on how to deal with
them and what you should be aware of.

Take out the scavenger's in the hallway, then head to the console - get 
to stop mid-way and turn around - you've got scavenger's to deal with before
you can finish your slicing.
Poor, poor Sev. Move on with a heavy heart. You'll find one scavenger lying 
wait here, and finally, Trandoshans! You can actually avoid them; they don't
drop anything useful at this point. There are two more scavengers to be 
of as you continue. Upon exiting tunnel and walking down the next hall, you
are attacked by two Trandoshans. Deal with them as you would like to, but 
as little chance as you can in killing them. You can go back to the tunnel
and just shoot their legs. Watch out for these kind of sneak attacks - the
Trandoshans absolutely love this stuff, and it will happen throughout the 
but especially on this ship. After another surprise attack, you'll meet one 
those lovely landmines. What you don't want to do is make any sudden moves,
unless you are crouched. In order to defuse, the only way this is done, is 
crouch-walking over to it and holding A to defuse it. Enemies can also 
these mines. If some are nearby, use them for a trap - Trandoshans are dumb;
get their attention and they'll come running your way, right into their own

The data console is your objective, but like any seemingly quiet area that
contains your objective, things will not be as they seem for very long. Like
before, head to the console, wary of your trap - however, do not touch it,
immediately retreat back to the entrance of this room - the room will become
filled with scavengers and trandoshans. You may want to use both your sniper
attachment and blaster rifle together. When it's clear, slice the console.

Rescue the Squad:
If you've been listening to the clone trooper's chatter, he's talking about
bad guys, turrets, and turrets being on your side. Not for long, if that
Trandoshan at the end of the hall makes it to the console - chase! Actually
just kill him as quick as possible. Thanks to your friends here, other 
are quickly killed. Just don't kill your friends, you won't get ammo.
There are Trandoshans in the pit. Take them out, but as you move, be 
for turrets up ahead. I would recommend using the blaster rifle here against

When you enter a large room, prep your flash grenades, and at the first 
of hostiles, throw it. Get ready to stab everyone in the room, if you can. 
up the rest before setting a charge to clear your path.
Shoot the explosive objects here to take out the other aliens. Watch out for 
scavenger and turret here, as well - at this distance, sniper works well, 
you consider that half a clip of blaster rifle ammo could have been used on 
handful of scavengers or a few aliens.

As you head up the ramp, move crosshair over those explosive objects and 
upon hearing the familiar Trandoshan footsteps heading your way. At the top,
immediately turn around and nail the one standing up there which would have
done some serious damage to you if you were unprepared.

Lots of debris here? Sounds like the perfect zone to hide in - the darkness 
make turrets like one around the corner, hard to spot at first, and of 
you have the Trandoshan. When you come to the next hall, I recommend using 
Trandoshan shotgun - you'll be ambushed by these guys dropping in from the 
above you. Vibroshiv is also helpful here, since the enemies are so close.
Finally, you'll need to disarm more landmines.

Where a charge must be placed, there are more Trandoshans. On a side note, 
can spot a light saber here by a clone trooper's corpse! Not that you can 
it, so move on until you come to the part where it looks like the next room 
lighter than where you are now - in fact, has a reddish tone. Sorry, I'm 
to describe best I can - around the corner is a Trandoshan minigunner. Nasty
fellows, and you're meeting for the first time, alone! Well, here's what to
do.. you really don't want to fight him toe to toe. I would first suggest a
manual save before doing anything. Take out your flash grenade and when 
ready, throw it around the corner. Immediately switch to your anti-armor
attachment and keep doing so until either you are out of ammo or he is 
signs of the stun wearing off. If he is not dead, wait in the tunnel near 
bancta and take out your sniper attachment - he'll come along shortly.

You can take his minigun if you want. I personally love the weapon & you 
always find a use for it, like soon in this level. Whatever you do, it's
time to get Fixer back. Unfortunately, you'll have a droid dispenser placed 
front of you and this one is packing SBDs and a 20 second timer for 
if you're curious. Worry about yourself, as Fixer is busy hacking his door
open. Just get out of there and head to the next pit. Now to get Sev back.

You can see through the window that Sev is being well-guarded. Down the 
get Fixer on the turret and your job is to go in the room. Take out the
Trandoshan minigunner first - thanks to the cover here, this will be 
easier than before. He doesn't have to be your priority, you can instead try
and revive Sev. With Sev, and Fixer standing by, you can afford to make some
mistakes here as well as clean this mess up quickly.

Our favorite Commando, Scorch, is the last we need for Delta Squad. Scorch 
being held in the prison block of this ship. Corridors are very tight here 
he has more security than Sev. It's pretty linear in here. Your biggest 
are two turrets which can eat you and your squad alive before you can look
up and shoot them. What you want to do is flank them - go around to where 
can snipe them safely. When they're out, just go straight (if you took my
advice to snipe) and form up your squad. As you move through this area, 
find guard stations which contain ammo, and sometimes enemies. They also 
you a decent view point of where to go next in here, even though that was 
too hard to begin with. You'll eventually come to a junction where you'll 
Scorch in his cell, ready to be set free.

Attack of the Clones:
Now that you are again a full fighting force, it's payback time.
Your nasty objective is to take back the bridge of this ship. It happens to 
occupied SBDs. On your way there, you'll run into landmines, signifying 
going the right way. Make sure you are always together with your squad here, 
there are several ambushes - fortunately there is lots of Bacta around as 

The entrance to the bridge should be handled with caution: throw ECD to stun
the SBDs nearby and quickly destroy them. Quickly move your squad into 
positions of your choosing - there are many in this room, and so long as you
have two people sniping, your chances of survival increase a little more.
Again you make a choice: doing it yourself or watching another Commando's
back, because someone needs to destroy that jammer.
Trandoshans attack soon after, and these are actually Mercenaries. If your 
have held their sniping positions, they will be quickly picked apart.
When you're finished, don't forget to load up on Bacta, found in this room.
Mercenaries will become a more common encounter as you make your way through
the ship now. They hide better than normal Trandoshans, but I don't find 
as dangerous, just a little bit smarter. Your goal is the lift.

Three circuits must be sliced here. The final one is located near a rocket
turret that is occupied. Give him a headshot from your sniper attachment. 
accomplished, your foes will be gassed. They make keep coming but ignore 
they'll die before they can do anything. You and your squad will be fine, go
along as you would normally. You'll need to set a charge at the point given 
the advisor, to progress.

Saving the Ship:
Time to give those Trandoshan scum a taste of their own medicine.
You're going to invade the hangar they've set up shop in and destroy them 
their drop ship in a daring assault.

Before this, you'll be in a dark room that needs your low light visor.
You must slice the console at the end of the hallway to shut off the 
As you are heading to the hangar, pick up the Concussion Rifle near the 
You want to save this for later, after you've accomplished this objective.

Taking out the ship is simple, thanks to the positions and firepower (the
turrets), at your disposal. It's only after you accomplish this initially
intimidating objective, that the real fun begins.

>From the looks of it, you're pretty much screwed. You've got the Separatists
outside, no reinforcements or a means of escape, and they're invading the 
with superior numbers. And seeing as droids probably can't comprehend

The hardest part about all these droids are the dispensers. You will get 
three at a time, and despite so many defensive positions in the room, you 
eventually have to get some people off them to set a charge and take out 
dispensers. Keep at least one shot in the Concussion Rifle, so you can hit 
stun droids with it, which is great for the numerous SBDs you'll run into.

The droids in this first chamber are nothing to worry about. It's in the 
hangar where they have set up shop and where you need to destroy the
dispensers. After sometime, the advisor will suggest you set a charge on the
thing by the force field. Form up your squad and get them all over here to
cover whoever is setting the charge, otherwise those SBDs will make 
of any lone wolf. Now you can destroy all the dispensers in this room 
getting more - at least in this hangar.

The third hangar is somewhat of a repeat of the second, but this time, given
the terrain, I would recommend sending someone to set the charge and 
him, again before removing the dispensers.

Time for the final hangar. It has three dispensers already! Get some 
in position, but the last should be sent to slice the console. Everyone 
including you, should try to keep those droids busy before going for cover 
waiting for reinforcements the advisor mentioned. In reality, this is the
firepower from a AT-TE walker he sends up, which you will operate and use to
easily destroy the droids and their dispensers, as well as that part to seal
the force fields.

Once you're down the lift, you're going to find that every inch of ground 
here will be hard fought for and well earned. In the halls, turrets waiting
on the sides, along with an abundance of battle droids, SBDs, and Droidkas.
Avoid as many as possible, using your anti-armor to remove only anything
directly in your path as you make your way to the chamber for your 
Watch your step here! This area has three consoles that need to be sliced, 
seconds each for a total of one minute. In the meantime, you will face an
endless wave of SBDs and battle droids coming in from two entry points in 
room. Set every Commando on a console and do the defending yourself. Use
everything at your disposal. When they are sliced, look out the window and 
that you have brought the turrets back online. After watching a lovely space
battle, you can relax, because it's mission accomplished for Delta Squad.

<|- Kashyyyk
Rescuing Tarful:
Move quickly and kill the camping slavers here. You'll come to a small
fortress where your priority should be the guy on the turret just around
the corner from where you enter the area. Whatever you do, get someone else
on that turret, and mop up others here. Get other Commandos into position.
Soon you are attacked by a wave of Trandoshans. When they're dead and all is
peaceful, get some Bacta nearby before heading inside.

Looks like a trap? The enemies above keep coming, so instead of killing 
use flash detonators to buy to time as you set the charge and get into that
tunnel. Only you need to crawl under in order to make it to the next area. 
the landing pad, get a sniper into position and get another to set a charge 
the wall.

Watch out for searchlights from now on. Shoot them out quickly, followed by
locating and sniping the Trandoshan sniper. If spotted, enemies will attack 
great force. If you pick up the Concussion Rifle, which the so-called Trando
"sniper"  was using, at least keep one shot - you'll need it later for a 
fight. Now it's time to go about rescuing Wookies on your way to Tarful. The
thing about your
Wookie allies is that they do not last: they run away, decide to stay in
one location after following you to a certain point, or just get killed.

Where you free the second Wookie, Trandos keep spawning at the window until
you slice the console and blow the wall open to the next room.
You'll soon come to a somewhat dark room that is apparently empty, but soon
occupied by a Trandoshan minigunner. If your Wookie pal wants to take him 
on, let him do so, but don't stop shooting the Trandoshan.

While freeing the third Wookie gets you out of this room, he also causes the
alarm to go off during his escape. Kill the sniper by the searchlight, then
move on and do so quickly if you wish - nothing to worry about, especially
with your whole squad behind you.

After you spot your objective, destroy the pipe & get ready for a boss 
Before that, however, you'll have some enemies to take care of behind you
if you are facing the forcefield you must disable.  Once it is down, you 
face the assassin droids with Tarful. He must survive at all costs - if not,
it's back to your last save. At any rate, this means you cannot use your
anti-armor attachment, really, since Tarful gets in the way. This is why
I suggested earlier to keep a Concussion Rifle around specifically to melee
these guys. Use ECD detonators along with the concentrated fire, as well.
You will fight one lone assassin, then two others after his destruction.

Obliterate the Outpost:
There are mines up ahead, but Trandoshans will soon attack you. The best 
to do is to go far enough to lure out the Trandoshans, and when you see/hear
the first sign of them, crouch-walk your way back out of the range of the
mines and wait. The Trandoshans will do your work for you.
You'll have a small maze to navigate through not far ahead, which is nothing
to worry about, considering your vibroshiv should deal with anything that
comes within arms reach. At the exit; a laser turret that should be
immediately dealt with via a headshot to the gunner from sniper attachment.
Use the turret ASAP! It�s a great turret, better than any you have used thus
far. After a hefty amount of bodies have been piled up thanks to your fire,
demolish the wall.

The forest is littered with droids & dispensers to be destroyed. Make note 
the crates, which contain ammunition and bacta stations.
Head to the next place, a landmine field, which you will shut off, but 
turn back on once you hear the Droidkas.

To destroy the landing pad, move to the left side. It's better to send 
else while you and the others take care of SBDs. Moving on, you'll run into 
spider droid. However, you can defeat it in a single action by shooting the
crane holding the beam.
More SBDs after the spider droid, and another charge needs to be set.

Another spider droid! This time it must be fought legitimately. You know the
drill. Place another charge on this landing pad and your ride comes in to 
your butt.

Bridge at Kachirho:
You'll need the Wookie Bowcaster nearby as an extra sniper weapon, so take 
right now. Past the roadblock - scavenger droids. Left of the tunnel is a 
to go through.
Everyone should be set in positions here: Two snipers and an anti-armor work
best. Your task is to grab the Wookie Rocket Launcher and destroy the branch
above to progress, or rather, to stop the flow of enemies.

In this dark area, low-light must be used in coordination with 
thanks to the fact that there are mines in the darkness here in need of 
You can find a concussion rifle near the end of this dark area. Use
it to take out the guy on the turret in the upcoming section. Aim for the 
of the turret!

Urban fighting here with Geonosians. Their beam weapon could come useful 
with the droids, but so can the concussion rifle and it's melee - go for the
beam weapon. There is a Trandoshan minigunner to take care of, but he will
require some firepower and skill to take down, since there are no positions
around for your squad. Further on, a Commando should be in sniper position 
the building. Mop up the enemies in here.

The bridge is one tough cookie! SBDs across from you, with multiple 
nearby and an enemy on the turret. First order of business is to take care 
the enemy on the
turret. There will be another enemy that tries to get in the turret, which
again, must be sniped. Order a commando to the turret as you move over 
and another on the grenade position. Finally, the last Commando should be
tasked with setting charges on the dispensers. This could take a retry or 
and Commandos will definitely die here, maybe
even you. At any rate, destroying those dispensers is top priority. One at a
time, though - retreat when things get bad and get some Bancta.
Beware that BSDs will attempt to follow if you are not quick enough.

You'll see the charge at the bridge failed. Before you can find a solution,
you'll meet a spider droid and droidkas. Hopefully your Commandos are still
in their positions? If not, get everyone back to them - for the Commando 
was setting the charges, get him to sniping position. From here, head 
to find the rocket launcher, aim at the fuel line, and fire. Wookie 
Tarful must not die and must be escorted. Fortunately, this time he is not 
enthusiastic about getting in your way and will often take cover while you
fight. All types of enemies strewn throughout here, like Trando Mercs and
Droidkas. Eventually you'll come to where Tarful will be waiting on the 
floor. Work fast to save as many weapons as possible. You will defend from
Geonosians and Droids. If they destroy too many, however, the game still
continues. Make sure you destroy the droid dispensers before moving on.

In the catwalk area, beware of enemies using the concussion rifles. Quickly
close those shutters - done by slicing the console. Get someone on it,
have two others get into sniping positions, and you should also snipe
what you can.

Search and Destroy:
It's at this point in the game where there'll be overwhelming odds. 
like ammunition for your weapons, and detonators, are crucial.

I'm talking about spider droids, first off: there is one you face shortly. 
your squad take care of the spider droid, as they have infinite ammo for 
weapons. At least use your Bryar pistol for supporting fire. There will be
another spider droid after a few full hallways of enemies.

Upon entering the hangar, you'll have droids and dispensers to deal with, 
Wookies to help you. When you've destroyed all the dispensers and droids,
destroy the fuel tank to proceed. Trandos run amok here. There will be quite 
few Trandoshan Minigunners throughout these areas, so take one for yourself
while you're at it.

In the next room, have everyone get into position and you scout ahead.
This is that old trick you may have used sometime ago, elsewhere.
Scout ahead and lure enemies back here, for two reasons - save ammo and play
it safe.

The first power station has initial enemies and more that appear while the
console is being sliced. You'll need at least two snipers & a Commando 
be sent to the console. Cover the guy on the console as best as you can. If 
can't make it, finish it off yourself.

Different sniper points at the next power station, but the same number of 
Fortunately one sniper point is closer to the console that must be sliced 
time, however, one of your snipers will not be safe, and may die.

After this, you journey to another hangar. Get your entire squad in turrets
here. You'll be attacked by assassin droids here. Although you're alone and
on foot, if you've been saving some items, now would be the right time to 
them - ECDs, anti-armor shots, the works. Just remember that there will be a
total of three.

Woo, Wookies! They should be helpful... but don't let them get in your way
when it comes to taking out SBD dispensers! Anyways, when you come to a 
you need to manage a crowd of SBDs. Get two Commandos on sniping positions 
use your detonators and/or anti-armor attachment. When clear, take the lift
out of here.

The Final Strike:
Clearing each hallway as you move on means that you will lose one of your
Commando's each time, to a turret for the primary objective to be 
Unfortunately, the less you have, the more challenges thrown at you. Getting
the remaining Commandos into position will be vital to progressing, as well 
carefully managing your weapons and their ammo - you eventually have to go
alone and certain weapons will come in handy for survival. Everything must 
done relatively slowly, and this can be time consuming, but must be done to
successfully accomplish this mission with a squad, more or less, until it 
comes down to you.

When it's just you and Scorch, you'll get a rocket launcher before a spider
droid that you mustn't hesitate to use. The lock-on feature usually kills
enemies in one hit, and will at least do massive here. At any rate, use it 
one of the two spider droids, because there is another after this. You'll 
get a second rocket launcher anyways.

When you're on your own, Geonosians are going to become a real pain. Move
quickly, ignoring as many of them, including their hatchlings, as possible.
They just keep coming.

Tim Bader's suggestion: the best way of getting through here is to ready 
sonic detonators (you only need 3 or 4 max) and just run straight through 
room while keeping as close to the right hand wall as possible. Keeping to 
right hand wall limits the number of eggs that drop down from the ceiling 
break open. When you get into the next, brighter room there will usually be 
warrior hanging around to greet you. Stab him quickly with your vibroshiv 
then turn round and keep chucking sonic detonators just through the doorway.
All the warriors/hatchlings will merrily follow and run straight into your
trap. By the time you are out of detonators only 1 or 2 warriors and maybe 3
or 4 hatchlings (on hard level) will have got through to the room you are in
and you can finish them off in short order. You may now proceed to the 
without having to worry about getting shot/stabbed in the back.

At this point, detonators of all kinds will come very handy. You still need 
get on the turret and blast parts of the ship imperative to the objective, 
you may be attacked. It's okay to get off of the turret now and then and 
care of business. Upon the destruction of the cruiser, congratulations, you
have beaten the game.
