Well, the missiles are acttually workable. First off its common believe that Magna Guard have some kind of missiles, even RC have it. That, and rapid fire ability allows spamming of missiles down a crowded corridor...

Still, Magna guard should have a electro staff or something.

The jet trooper sucked and his weapon had a worst effect then that of battlefront one. you had to hit the enemy directly. same with the super battle droid's rockets.

Erm, no he wouldn't, he get owned by everybody and their mother. A slow melee class?

This isn't Soul Calibur y'know. (Astaroth Rules!)

In Republic Commando, Magnaguards were amazingly agile, they jumped fairly high, but could do rapid rolls and samursaults to avoid getting shot at, while the missile launcher was a "spray and prey" multi-missile thing that came out the tips of the staff.

Actually the missiles came out of launchers on the guard's back, but whatever.

Yeah, A magnaguard would be cool with a staff but how effective would it be? If they made him really quick or agile then it might work.

Basicly, a guy with a melee weapon in a setting where almost everyone else has guns is pretty much screwed, unless he has somthing to back him up. Like lots of health, the ability to reflect shots, or being incredibly speedy and agile.

It would be an interesting weapon, maybe as a back up close range weapon instead of the 'launcher. So he can spam rockets from his gun (or back...) and if guys get too close beat 'em down with it's staff.


Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?

If the MagnaGuard were to be made with an electrostaff the chances are that it would be either extremely quick or have a ton of health and probably another "shooter" type weapon to back him up. Or he could be just a unit to fight the Jedi.

That was what I was hoping was in the game. Man was I mad when I saw him with a gun.

i said droideka, i hate playing as them and i hate fighting agaisnt em. A jedi goes down faster than a destroyer with its shield on, and if you are playing online u are shot before u can open up and use the shield anyway.

Question Droideka. I can't make it roll so it's useless.

I have read forums, contacted support and read YODA FAQs with no results. Perhaps some nice person ( ok, could be a bad person) could clue me.

Depends on what your controls are. In-game, go into options, then to controls. Select Vehicle. Somewhere on the list you'll see "Droideka Deploy." That's the key used.

Thanks! ! really appreciate your response. Checked Vehical and Infantry controls in Battlefront 1 and found nothing for Droideka. So, I just began hitting every key on the keyboard and finally hit "E" and IT ROLLED!! The fact that you responded made my day. Thanks again. Andy

Just hit the "E" key. There is nothing in the manual and no Droideka control entry in either Vehical or Infantry "Control" options in Battlefront 1.

Now here's a board I haven't been to for a while...

I don't really like any unit with shotgun-style weapon. Mainly because shotguns are just...awful!

Is there any sweet spots on the Droidekas shield?? it takes forever to disarm them and their firepower sure swipes out a whole crew of clones...

I only hate Bothan Spies because they get in the way. I'm one shot away from killing Princess Leia, and the headshot takes out a Bothan Spy. By then, I'm dead, and being teabagged by a female. DX
