Gold Medal Strategy
- Difficulty: 5/10
- Recommended Ship: Snowspeeder
This is a fairly easy mission as long as you remember one thing - troopers don't count as kills! When the mission starts, hit your boosters and head down the canyon. Tell your wings to attack the guns. Slow down to take out as many probe droids as possible, hopefully all of them. Do not brake though. After they're destroyed, head over the hill to the left. There will be a very steep drop, and your speeder will lose altitude because of it. Fly up the next hill, and make a right. You should see 3 AT-STs. Kill all 3, then look behind them. You should see a box recently dropped by a shuttle. Stick around for a couple seconds until you see an AT-ST emerge. Kill him, then kill the box. Turn back around, and scrap the 4 AT-STs near the ion cannon. Make a left, and take out the final 3. Now make a left, and there will be an AT-AT escorted by 3 AT-STs. Take out all 3, then head towards the other 3 AT-ATs. Kill the 3 AT-STs escorting them. Hit your boosters and take down the 3 critical AT-ATs. On your approach, shoot them with lasers to keep your accuracy up. When they're destroyed, you'll appear in a canyon. You can tell your wings to flee here. Take out the 3 probe droids, and then fly onto the top of the hill to your right. You should soon see a group of probe droids in a rocky canyon. Hit your brakes and take down as many as possible, but don't turn around if you miss a few. Hit your booster towards your objective. If you didn't kill all the probe droids from the beginning, you'll have another chance to here. Quickly switch craft.
Look skyward and slightly to the left. You'll see Imperial Fighters incoming. Kill the 3 TIE Fighters with a head on approach. Turn back to the right and there will be 2 Squadrons of 3 Bombers. Take out all 6 with a combination of lasers and 4 homing torpedoes. Look across the valley to the other transports, and there will be 2 bombers here. Lock on and fire your remaining 2 torps.
- The AT-ATs are invincible to lasers, but can increase your accuracy.
- The required AT-STs take quite a few hits themselves.
- The probe droids are necessary kills. Don't neglect them.
- The ground troops are unnecessary kills. Neglect them. ^_^.
- Always go full speed while wrapping the tow cable.
- Keep your wings away by telling them to flee or attack something you don't care about.
- Seeker torpedoes are your best friend against TIEs.
