Jedi Knight II: Tips from the Source
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Gaming site 3D Action Planet has recently started a feature titled "Frag 101," with the objective being to gets tips on how to play FPSes from their respective programmers. The first in this series targets Jedi Knight II, and inquires Mike Gummelt, Gameplay Programmer for Rave Software, as to the lowdown on how to be a better Jedi.

The feature is rife with spoilers about the single player storyline behind JK2, but those who have either played the game already or don't care will find plenty of tips concerning both the single and multiplayer modes, including debates on which weapons work best:

I can't say that there's a best weapon in multiplayer, as far as I know, because it really depends on the situation or the opposition. The repeater is good in a variety of situations... the flechette gun is great against jedi, detpacks are good for trapping high-traffic areas, the disruptor is good for camping and protecting an area, even the bryar pistol is really nasty if you have good aim.
Also covered are tips on taking out specific enemies, the use of both dark and light force powers, and cool tricks to try in-game. Those interested in getting a leg up on the competition can find the whole read at 3D Action Planet.
