Lightsaber

Combat Styles

Medium Lightsaber Combat Style
This is the classic lightsaber combat style. The attacks are of a medium speed and range and do a decent amount of damage. Some of the moves incorporate spins. A Jedi can chain about three to five attacks in a row. This style is best for fighting multiple enemies.

Fast Lightsaber Combat Style
This style is very fast and efficient, though somewhat limited in range. The short, quick motions allow for many repeated attacks and quick follow-ups, but the damage inflicted is low due to the glancing nature of the strikes. These attacks never incorporate fancy moves such as spins and can be chained indefinetly. This style is best used when fighting a lot of enemies who are not using lightsabers.

Strong Lightsaber combat Style
This style uses powerful swings to break through defenses. The attacks have great range and a large windup and follow-through (leaving you open to counterattacks). If they hit, the enemy is rarely able to block the attack and may be knocked down. If an enemy has a lightsaber, it may be knocked aside. It is wise to use the attackswhen fighting a lone lightsaber-wielding enemy.

Lightsaber Locking

When two lightsabers lock, the combatents are stuck pushing against each other. You must push against the other combatent (repeatedly ta your Primary Attack button) in order to win the lock. the higher the combatent's offensive skill, the harder he can push. If you lose the lightsaber lock, hold the jump key to get up quickly.
If you have level three of force push, you can attempt to break a lightsaber lock this way. However, there is no guarentee of sucecss and you may leave yourself open for attack.

Basic Attacks

The strength, speed, and range of these attacks vary depending on which lightsaber Combat Style you are currently using.

Forward Top-Down Hack
Forward + Primary Attack OR Backward + Primary Attack
A fast deadly attack. If it hits, it can inflict a lot of damage. This attack is best for hitting targets above or below you.

Horizontal Swipe Attack
Strafe Left + Primary Attack OR Strafe Right + Primary Attack
A slower attack, this move gives you the best chance of hitting an upright enemy, even if the enemy is moving horizontally. In this move, you will swing from the right while sidestepping to the left, or vice versa. This is useful for hitting an enemy in passing, but not for enemies that are jumping or ducking.

Diagonal Slash Down
Forward + Strafe Left + Primary Attack OR Forward + Strafe Right + Primary Attack
This attack is best for enemies that are somewhat close to you who are not moving. It does not have as much range as the horizontal swipes, but is faster and has a good chance of hitting enemies in close quarters.

Diagonal Slash up
Backward + Strafe Left + Primary Attack OR Backward + Strafe Right + Primary Attack
This attack is excellent when surprising an enemy, especially one charging at you. Execute this while running backwards and being chased. It is also good against enemies who are crouching or jumping.

Special Attacks

Stab Backwards
Backwards + Attack
Conditions: Player standing or crouching, and enemy located right behind the player
Combat Style: All
When an enemy is directly behind you, you can execute this attack. It is difficult move to time, but it is a fairly fast and devastating stab that can't be blocked. This attack can only be used when standing or crouching. With the fast lightsaber style, it's a quick back stab. In medium and strong saber styles, you spin 180 degrees and slash.

Forward Lunge
Forward + Attack from crouching
Conditions: Must be crouching and in ready position
Combat Style: Fast Only
A relatively weak attack with little chance of hitting, this attack may, nonetheless, take your opponent by surprise. You will suddenly lunge forward forward with an upward, jabbing motion.

Fkip Forward And Attack Downward
Forward + Attack + Jump
Conditions: Enemy must be directly in front of you
Combat Style: Medium Only
A good evasive maneuver combined with a devastating attack from above. Execute this attack when your enemy is directly in front of you and you are using the medium combat style. You will flip up over your enemy's head and attack downward as you pass over him. It's a good move to use if you're surronded by enemies and want to get out of the middle.

Forward Jump, Downward Hack
Forward + Attack + Jump from standing position
Conditions: Must be standing and in ready position
Combat Style: Strong Only
A very strong, unblockable attack; almost always a finishing move. It is very slow. Press the attack button before you jump forward. This move has only a small chance of hitting.



Items

Neuro-Saav Model TD2.3 Electrobinoculars
Electrobinoculars are always available to Kyle throughout the game (in Single Player). They can operate in low-light conditions and magnify distant objects. They are powered by normal battery cells and drain power at a minimum rate. Use the Fire and Alternate Attack keys to zoom in and out. Note that you cannot fire weapons as long as the binoculars are in use. The binoculars power down when they run out of battery power.

Select this item in your inventory and then use it to instantly boost your health. In single player, it restores up to 35 health points and you can carry five. In multiplayer, you can carry 1 and it restores up to 100 health points.

Arakyd Mark VII Inquisitor
Similar to the training drones used by the Jedi to practice lightsaber skills, this seeker hovers over Kyle until an enemy is within range, then it will move in close to the enemy. The seeker operates for a limited amount of time, then self destructs. You can only deply one at a time.

Light Amplification Googles
Once aquired, these light googles always stay in Kyle's inventory (in Single Player). When used, they enhance the overall brightness of the enviroment but cast everything in an orange hue. the googles require batteries to function and will drain power at about the same rate as electrobinoculars. The player can still fire weapons when the googles are activated but you lose much of your periphial vision. The googles power down when battery power is depleted.

The New Republic & Allies

Kyle Katarn
Kyle Katarn is a man who as seen all sides of the Force. He has served in the Special Operations division of the Imperial Army, as a Rebel Agent, and also as a Jedi Knight. Born on Sulon, the moon of Sullust, Kyle came from farmer stock. but while training at the Imperial Army, he was dealt a crushing blow: An Imperial notification led him to beleive that his father was killed in a Rebel Ambush. Vowing revenge against the Alliance, Katarn joined the Imperial Army. However, he soon learned the true face of the Empire and his hatred grew for it's underhanded ways. Katarn ended his Imperial Service when he elected to help Jan Ors escape from their clutches.

Freed from his Imperial post, Katarn turned to mercenary-for-hire. Along with Jan Ors, he vowed to help the Alliance fight against the Empire. His cause took on greater importance when he learned the true fate of his father, who was killed by a Dark Jedi named Jerec. This revelation led Kyle on a journey to the hidden Valley of the Jedi, where he learned of his powerful Jedi destiny. Kyle grappled with the rigid duality of the Force and nearly fell to its dark side.

Suspicious of the Force's true power, Kyle decided to give up the force in order to protect himself and others from its Dark Side. He turned over his lightsaber to Luke Skywalker and returned to his old post as a spy and saboteur for the New Republic. Now, Kyle's ability to use the force has weakened to the point of non-existence. Along with Jan, Kyle now travels in the Raven's Claw, a powerful and fast light carrier that replaces his old ship, the Moldy Crow.

Jan Ors
While working as a mole within the Imperial Intelligence Corps, the headstrong Jan Ors' cover was blown and she was imprisoned. The alliance hired Kyle Katarn to save her. He risked his life and helped her escape from the clutches of the Empire.

Now they are inseperable Allies; Ors recomended Katarn to Mon Mothma for the Dark Forces mission. Their bond is known throughout the galaxy. In fact, it is said that Jan is the only person that Kyle cares for more than himself.

Luke Skywalker
Raised on Tatooine by Owen and Beru Lars, Luke Skywalker is the son of Anakin Skywalker. A hero in his own right, Skywalker established the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV after the fall of the Empire. He created the Academy to serve as a learning center to help future Jedi grapple with the power of the force.

Lando Calrissian
A shrewd buisnessman and gambler, Lando Calrissian is a legend in many different cultural circles. He was a general in the Rebellion and befriended Luke Skywalker. Since the fall of the Empire, Lando has taken great care to be taken seriously as a respectable buisnessman.

The Empire

Admiral Galak Fyyar
Once a trusted weapon scientist reporting directly to the Emperor, Chancellor Galak Fyyar was given his honourary title for his dedicated servitude to the Empire. Always mindful of not letting political turmoil interupt his research, the collapse of the Empire did little to change his experiments. His first attempt at melding the Force and technology failed, but he is now hard at work on a new project to aid the Remnant's cause.

Imperial Officers
Clad in the formal uniform of the Empire they once proudly served, these dedicated and dangerous enemies still command legions of forces. They are usually armed with standard-issue blaster pistols and are known for their marksmanship.

Stormtroopers
These assault soldiers made up the bulk of the Emperor's armed forces. Armed with standard-issue blaster rifles, stormtroopers are fanatically loyal and fight in the face of overwhelming odds. Squad leaders, recognised by a colored shoulder patch, carry the Golan Arms FC-1 weapon.

Swamp Troopers
These heavily armoured troopers are a mottled grey color to blend into their swampy surrondings. Similar in construction to the scout trooper, these soldiers are armed with the Golan Arms FC-1 or repeater gun.
