Ask Your SWBF2 Questions Here!

Does anyone have any info on what the Auto Turrets are that the sniper class carry? Is it some type of mini turret that can guard your back or defend a location while you move to new ground?

It's a small floating droid that looks like a grey interrogation droid from the DS. It fires when people go near it, and is as scary as a crouching Greivous.

Awsome! I can't wait to try that out on Hoth. The number of cool things that come to mind are just plain awsome. There have been so many cases were I've found a great sniping location just to get killed by a single pilot that has found me in a not so great position to defend myself.

The auto turret is going to be fun to use.

One would imagine that the aut turret isn't meant to kill other people, so much as it's meant to give you warning that someone approaches.

I've been able to jump on the auto turret (frendly of course) to get to better places...

I wouldn't say it is crap... just another tool.

What you really need is 3 snipers at the same place to drop their turrets together, I am sure a couple of these together will be alot more effective.

Is it better than the first one and how much?

I talked a bunch of guys into buying the first one at or LAN party and then it bombed horribly with them! I felt like an idiot. We went back to Battlefield 1942 and Unreal Tournament 2004. Two main reasons it bombed, the maps where to small especially for the space fighters and some people just didn't like the way the graphics looked. We loved playing Jedi Knight Outcast in its day but just couldn't get into Battlefront.

Better is pretty subjective. Personally I am having a blast playing this online... the space battles are amazing.
Will your friends like it more than the first SWBF? Well that is hard to answer... but I would bet money they will like it more than the first one. I would recomend getting this one, trying it out yourself... and then see if you will recomend it.

Well I'll be objective and say that from the reviews I've read, the game's pretty much the same as the first one except there's more content added plus there's a coherent single player campaign. I read that some maps, such as Rhen Var and Tatooine were taken out completely and the game's pretty much about the space battles and the Jedi, though IGN points out that the Jedi are kind of twitchy and the overall game is more arcade like (quake) as opposed to sim like (battlefield). Once I have the game, I'll put a non-hype review up.

So can you prone/crouch then?

Hi, I want to buy this game as I had a blast playing the last game online. But I wanted a definite answer to the question in the title.

So, can you crouch or prone in the game? It would annoy the hell out of me if I couldn't. Especially if I was a sniper, I would be a sitting duck if I was standing and sniping.

I remember reading somewhere that you can crouch but not prone, but I have also heard that if you press and hold the crouch key you prone. So I am a bit confused.

Also does this game have widescreen support?

Thanks
Richo

You aren't buying it because you can't go prone?

Heres an idea, be something other than a sniper once in a while.

You can still snipe, even if you're not prone. I agree that I wish being prone were still in the game, but that seems like an odd reason to not get the game. The rest of the game seems to be pretty fun to me.

Each ship is like a standard vehicle (only with no wheels). You can steal enemy ships. To do so, you must land in the enemies fighter bay, wait for a ship to respawn (not long) and jump in. You now control that ship.

I'm not sure you can steal a BIG ship, like a Star Destroyer. You can enter them and run around, kill more people, steal a small fighter and leave. I haven't tried to steal a Star Destroyer though.

If you press and hold the crouch key, you get down onto one knee for a lower crouch. No prone. Which doesn't bother me in the least, since I've never gone prone deliberately in the original.

The space battles are what really make this game awesome in my books. Each side (usually) has a star destroyer (type ship) and a friggot style ship. The SD has the spawn point, starfighter bay, turret command room and sometimes a destroyable warp core. The friggots are destroyable (I think, but they don't seem to do much).

From the launch bay, if you hop into one of the many types of star fighters, or troop transports... you lift off and fly out of the bay and into space. Prepare to dogfight, avoid turret fire, fly around obsticles and shoot anything that moves.

I could go on for hours about the space battles, but I would rather play them. Hope that helps, see you online.

Read somewhere that the developers took out the 'prone' feature because no one used it. Seems the game moves too fast for it sometimes to be useful

not at all, you have to get to 180 points to win, when you kill off the engine it gies you 40 points i think (major compont) the other small ocuncils give you 1, the turrents give you 1, the starfighetsr give you 1, bomber 2, trooper trans 5 and such, you can destroy all systems in the other guy's ship and not win!!!! you have to get to 180 point!!!!

Friggots give you about 14 or 19 points for blowing them up. In the beta, they are sort of off to the side and don't do much, but in the other space maps, they are between the two main ships and their turrets will pick your fleet to pieces unless you take tem out. So far, I've seen a max of 3 Friggots per team on a few space maps (the beta just has 1 per team).

What's your problem? I don't play as a sniper all the time. I hardly ever do. It's just I don't want to be restricted in my movements at all.

For any one who played the first game for any length of time should be able to confirm this, my user name was casanova.

I have to say, that when they still had orbital strikes in the game, I'd often go find me an out-of-the-way gonk droid and just hunker down, prone, so as to draw as little attention to myself as possible, and just oribital bomard the heck out of everyone. I have to say, that was a LOT of fun. I'm sort of sad to see that both oribital bombardment and laying prone are gone from SWBF2, but I still think the game is pretty fun so far.
