fellow gamers with troubles they might be having, that's all, nothing else. For

I was excited to see this title come out. I watched all the news of the
progress of this venture by Lucas Arts, hoping we will finally get back to the
days of great Star Wars games like Tie Fighter and X-Wing Tie Fighter. Well the
finished product pleases me. It reminds me a lot of one of my all-time favorite
games, Tie Fighter. My only complaint is that I have to play the good guys, but
I will live. This game offers some great dogfights and challenging missions and
the opportunity to play missions over and over again to gain medals so that you
can open up more missions and ships. Hopefully I will be able to help you out
with strategies to get through some missions and objectives. Please enjoy this
FAQ as much as I have enjoyed making it for you!

i. Overview
Basically you are a starfighter! Cool, eh? Yeah I thought so. In this game you
complete missions as three different pilots, Rhys Dallows, Vana Sage, and Nym.
After each mission you get a cutscene to move the story along. I will try not
to give many things away because I hate spoilers so unless need be I will try
not to give the story away. If I do I will put a *Spoiler* before it happens,
okay? So get ready to save Naboo from the Trade Federation in the 14+ missions
in this great game.

ii. Controls
X-Fire primary weapon

Square- Target ship, also hold button to activate Sensor Targeting system,
which highlights all targets, then use directional pad to highlight that target
you want to pursue.

Triangle-Target nearest enemy, press repeatedly to cycle through available

Circle- Fire secondary weapon, also hold button to charge Advanced Secondary

Start-Pause Menu

Select-Change view from cockpit to chase

R Analog Stick-Move left or right to roll.

R3-press to reorient your ship to level

L Analog Stick-Controls pitch. Push up to lower nose, down to raise nose.

R1-Sniper mode


L1-Fire primary weapon


Directional Pad-Wing mate Commands
->    "Report In!"
<-    "Protect my target!"
^     "Attack my target!"
Down- "Cancel order and protect me"

iii. Menu
Starfighter has a no-fuss menu. You have 4 selections in the menu:
-Bonus Missions
-Load Game

Some of these are self-explanatory so forgive me for not going into full detail
on them.

This option will take you to the mission select screen. This includes 14
missions. After completing a mission and a cut scene, you can come here and
play them over or watch the cut scene again. After selecting a new game or an
already completed mission you are prompted to decide on easy, medium, or hard.

-Bonus Missions-
You can unlock bonus missions and ships by getting medals for completing
difficult objectives in the 14 missions. I will go into detail later in the FAQ
on what requirements you need to open up these missions and ships.

Here you can reconfigure your controller setup to your liking if you do not
like the default setting, flip the Y-axis (if you would like the Left Analog
functions reversed), turn vibration on or off, and calibrate your joystick
sensitivity. Also you can adjust sound, code setup, save, and restore default

iv. Cockpits
I will attempt to explain how the cockpit looks, this might not work but I will
see if anyone emails me and complains about this section.

v. Pilots
The following are the three main characters in Star Wars: Starfighter. I took
most of the info from the manual...thanks LucasArts!

-Rhys Dallows-
Rhys was born on the edge of Theed, the capital of Naboo. He is a strong-willed
rookie who has always dreamed of joining Bravo Flight. His mother, a
schoolteacher, raised Rhys. Rhys never knew his freighter pilot father, who
went missing during a routine mission. Rhys always yearned to follow in his
father's footsteps and travel through the galaxy.
Rhys got his chance to travel the galaxy when he was invited to join the Bravo
Flight and defend his homeworld of Naboo. Under Essara's tutelage, Rhys learned
the skills he would need to complete his destiny.

-Vana Sage-
Vana is a disenchanted starfigher pilot. She is also a spy and adventurer. Vana
grew up on Alderaan and left at the young age of 15 to work with many bounty
hunters. Maybe she knows Bobo Fett. Her adventures took her to Naboo, where she
served with the Royal security Forces. She requested that the military should
be strengthened and was denied and left.
Since then, Vana gained a reputation for working for the highest bidder.
Recently, she captured Nym, an alien pilot, for the Trade Federation. Vana is a
doubting her alliance with the Trade Federation.

Nym is a Feeorin, an alien species found in the Outer Rim worlds. Criminals on
the planet Lok raised Nym, but his meager upbringing gave him time to improve
his tactical skills. Nym became a respected pirate. He is greedy enough to keep
his crew in business, and often plans non-violent raids among the Core Worlds.
The Trade Federation was not fond of Nyms practices. They hired Vana Sage to
capture him. Luckily his loyal crew helped him escape and he is ready to go
against the Trade Federation.

vi. Ships
-N-1 Starfighter-
The cool yellow starship from Star Wars Episode 1. It is fast and agile and is
equipped with strong deflector shields.

Primary Weapon-Laser Cannons
Secondary Weapon-Proton Torpedoes (limited number so don't waste!)
Advanced Secondary Weapon-Advanced Proton Torpedoes (good against tight enemy

-Guardian Mantis-
A fun ship to fly, fast and very maneuverable. The braking system will stop you
on a dime and also you can become stealth. On board is an astomech droid named
Mod-3 for all your in-flight repairs.

Primary Weapon-Sensor-Guided Nano Missiles (Enemy must be targeted and tagged
with the secondary weapon for the nano missiles to hunt it down)

Secondary Weapon-Ion-Enabled Sensor Tags (drains shields and allows primary
weapon to track and kill, just like the ion cannons on tie-fighters in Tie!)

Advanced Secondary Weapon-Ion-Encumbrance System (Disables ship)

An experimental and dangerous ship. It is a bomber so don't expect a lot of
speed and good handling. It is equipped with heavy shields and an automatic
rotating gun turret. It also has 6 laser cannons and 2 bomb chutes.

Primary Weapon-Dual Triple-Laser Cannons

Secondary Weapon-Energy Bombs

Advanced Secondary Weapon- Plasma Scourge (like napalm, will kill multiple
enemies at one time)

The Royal Escort
Contract Infraction
Piracy Above Lok

The New Resistance
The Final Assault

viii. Mission Walkthroughs

Here I will try to give hints and tips on how to complete all objectives and
Bonus Goals in the game so as to get all the medals possible. There are
probably many different ways to get a bronze, silver, and gold medal in each
mission but I will put how I achieved it.

*Mission 1 Naboo Proving Grounds*
Character- Rhys Dallows
Ship- N-1 Starfigher

-Destroy all first canyon mines
-Destroy all second canyon mines
-Destroy Training Droid
-Destroy all Halo Fighters
-Defeat Essara

Bonus Goals
-Destroy all bonus mines
-Complete mission in under 4 minutes
-Win race against Essara

Hit boost right off the bat if you want to get a gold medal. You don't have
much time to mess around. Target your fist mine and fire away. Quickly shoot
down all 9 mines and move into the second canyon. Again use boost as much as
possible. Shoot down the 20 mines in the canyon to move into the clearing and
quickly destroy the Training Droid. Keep pumping lasers into him till he blows.
Target the Halo Fighter entering the third canyon and blow him away fast. Hit
the boost and catch up to the second Halo Fighter, but be on the lookout for
the 6 mines in this canyon, which you need to destroy for the gold medal. When
you come to the next clearing you will face 2 waves of Halo Fighters. Quickly
blow them out of the sky and Essara will challenge you to a race through the
next canyon. Hit the boost and don't let go till you cross the finish line.
When you have beaten her put on the brakes and get Essara in your sights and
keep her there as she tells you that you two are going to battle. The winner is
the one who depletes their foes shield first. Keep her in your sights and when
she says go, fire away till she declares you the winner. If you cleared the 6
bonus mines, beat her through the canon, and did it all within 4 minutes or
under, then you will have the bronze, silver and gold medals.

*Mission 2 The Royal Escort*
Character- Rhys Dallows
Ship- N-1 Starship

-Protect the Royal Escort

Bonus Goals
-Royal Starship takes no hull damage
-Destroy all Merc Daggers in under 1 minute
-Rhys destroys all Merc Dianogas

Right away hit triangle to find the Merc Daggers. Ignore all the Mourningstars
and Dianogas for now. You want the gold medal! When you found the Daggers pick
them off one by one as fast as you can with your Proton Torpedoes. If you got
lucky and were fast enough you got them in under 1 minute. When you are done
with that, work on the Merc Dianogas so you can get the gold. At times your
wingmen will shoot one down while you are working on the Daggers. That is very
frustrating, but it only happened twice in the 10 times I did this mission.
After you are done with the Dianogas, work on the Mourningstars. Make sure to
keep the Royal Escort nearby so you can attack any units attacking its shields.
After awhile the Escort Ship will attempt to jump to hyperspace but a new set
of Dainogas block its way. Quickly target them and shoot them down before your
wingmen do. Once those are gone the Escort will jump to hyperspace and you have
completed the mission and received the three different medals.

*Mission 3 Contract Infraction*
Character- Vana Sage
Ship- Guardian Mantis

-Destroy all Scarab Fighters
-Destroy all Hunter-Seeker Droids
-Destroy all Merc Fighters

Bonus Goals
-Tag all Scarabs
-Complete Mission in under 4 minutes
-Destroy all Merc Fighters

You will see 5 waves of Scarabs
1st wave-2 Scarabs
2nd wave-4 Scarabs
3rd wave-4 Scarabs
4th wave-5 Scarabs
5th wave-6 Scarabs

This is a difficult gold to get. Heck, I have yet to get it. When I do I will

When your first batch of Scarabs comes out, tag them by using your circle
button. This will pace a blue circle around them, which means they're tagged
and your primary weapon (X) will track them. Do this as FAST as you can through
all 5 waves of Scarab Fighters.
You will then face numerous Hunter-Seeker Droids. They take one or two shots
and you don't need to tag them. After you defeat them you will be faced with
many Mourningstars and Daggers. Quickly destroy them using your Sensor tags to
deplete their shields so it will take less laser hits, which also means less
time wasted. If you do all this fast enough you will receive all three medals.
I have yet to get the gold, my best time was 4:39. Doh!

*Mission 4 Secrets of Eos*
Character-Vana Sage
Ship-Guardian Mantis

-Destroy Shield Generators 1-7

Bonus Goals
-Destroy Dispensers before Droids are launched
-Destroy all Miner Droids
-Complete Mission in under 8 minutes

When you start off try and destroy all the Droid Dispensers (5). One is hidden
behind one of the hills. After completing that, now take out 7 pylons while
destroying Miner Droids as you're moving from pylon to pylon. Do not shoot the
7th pylon till you have completely destroyed all the Miner Droids or the
mission will end and you won't get the gold.

*Mission 5 Piracy Above Lok*

-Disable 1 Superfreighter
-Destroy all Scarab Fighters
-Destroy Repair Ships
-Destroy all Droid Starfighters

Bonus Goals
-Destroy 4 TF Freighters
-Complete Mission in under 7 minutes
-Destroy Missle Frigate

This is your first time in the Havoc. It is not the most agile starfighter but
it packs some serious firepower. Boost and head toward a selected Armed
Freighter and shoot your secondary weapon and lasers till you see it's sheilds
down. Do not destroy it!! Now head towards the Freighters and quickly destroy 4
of them. Next help out shooting down all the Scarabs. Keep hunting them down
till the Missle Frigate and Repair Ships show up. Target the Missle Frigate 
and throw all your secondary weapons at it. This should destroy it and now head
out to locate the 2 Repair Ships before they dock with the Armed Freighter your
disabled. After those are dust return to shooting the Scarabs down as fast as
you can. When those are done some Droid Starfighters will show up. Quickly get
rid of those and you're on your way to the gold! Yay!

*Mission 6 Valuable Goods*

-Protect Pirate Freighter during loading
-Escort Pilot Freighter

Bonus Goals
-Destroy Dropships before tanks are launched
-All Pirate Speeder Bikes must survive
-Destroy Recovery Ship

Head out and destroy the 2 Dropships. After you blow those to pieces, head over
to the Recovery Ship and blow it to bits. Then head to where they are loading
the Freighter and help out by taking out the AAT's in the area and the annoying
Scarabs. When they have finished loading, escort them to the cave down the
river. Be sure to ask your wingmen to help protect the Freighter. Take out the
Bombers attacking the Freighter and then head to the land to right and help
take out the AAT's that are attacking the Speeder Bikes. Another Dropship will
be ordered in at some point. When they do, find it and quickly destroy it
before they are able to launch their tanks. When the Freighter is almost to the
cave, take out the AAT's on the hill above to insure the saftery of your load.

*Mission 7 Eye of the Storm*

-Protect Evac Transports during loading
-Protect Inferno Turret

Bonus Goals
-Destroy Dropships before tanks are launched
-All Decoy Freighters must survive
-Escort Jenkins to his freefall

This is a tough mission. Probably the most difficult one so far. So much stuff
is going on all at once. Boost your ship to the Dropships up ahead and to the
left. Target one of them and then have your wingmen attack it. Switch your
target to the other Dropship and blow it out of the sky. Now go back to the
other one and hep finish the job. Now go hunting down Scarabs. Soon you will be
given the task of protecting Jenkins. Find him and have your wingmen protect
him and go back to scrapping the Scarabs. Bombers will enter the fray as well
as two more Dropships. Head over to the area you took out the other Dropships
and you should find more. Use the same method of blowing them to bits as you
did the earlier ones. When done with them, head back to the Bombers. They will
now send out the Decoy Freighters. Make sure to get rid of as many Bombers and
AAT's as you can to insure the Decoys saftey. Soon the Evac will take off.
Target it and have your wingmen protect it as you clear a path for it. Keep it
protected till the mission is declared a success. If done right, you should
have the gold!
