Death Star II Undefeated Rubber Band Strategy

Easy as Pie. Position a rubber band to keep the X button down. This frees up your thumb to do all the barrell rolling you can want, AND MORE!

Shooting torpedos is also a breeze with the rubber band in place.

The best way I can describe the positioning is a northwest to southeast line, on the right controller grip. The rubber band goes between the battery pack and RT/RB, and then across the X button holding it down, all the way down to the lowest right tip of the controller grip.

The rest of the strategies for Death Star II apply: use the TIE interceptor at all times (except for blowing the core, then use the Millenium Falcon), barrell roll constantly, and don't forget that hearts do not disappear on this level.

I was so happy this worked as well as it did, I messed up a couple of times in the last section because I kept barrell rolling. Then I realized...there are no fighters here, so it's just manuevering.

Good Luck, and I hope this helps you.

if it really works i, shouldn't u take off the rubber band on the very last part cause barrel rolling screws u up and u might smash into a wall.

Holding down the X is to fire, not to constantly roll...

This worked great thanks for the post. I used tape instead of a rubber band. I found it worked better for me, but the x button was a bit sticky

Thanks for the great advice on this, I didn't have a rubber band, but I used scotch tape over the x button and it did the same thing. Finally, got the last achievement for this game.

I traded this game in a long time ago, but thanks for the tip on beating this last level. If I pick up the game at a later time, this will really help me at least get one of the perfect level achievements that I need.

BIG thx, took me a few tries to beat it, mostly cuz i was being too overly cautious, but this worked like a CHARM. as i flew out of the core seconds away from getting the 1k for beating it all i thought to myself "man i love those forums"

I'll have to give this a shot. I got 980 pretty easily, and tried this final mission a couple times before deciding it probably wasn't worth the aggrivation. Not because I don't think I couldn't do it, but mainly because the game has a tendency to freeze up on me with this mission. Having 980 doesn't really bother me that much, but with this strategy making it a bit easier, I'll probably give it a few more shots to finish the game completely.

I think the same thing for so many games. X360A rocks!

EDIT: Also I just beat this level using this method! Sweet! Only took me four tries too.

This is an awesome tip, I used it for all the flying missions and got them in one shot. Death Star II took me two tries only because at the very end I got trapped in one of those electric bolts and it wouldnt let go. This should be stickied to the main page with all the people having trouble with this mission.

Rubber bands rock! This and the Death Star strategy ( http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...ad.php?t=18394 ) were a great help.

this was a great help! got it in about 3 tries. make sure you use the tie interceptor, because its way harder with any other ship.

Almost made it. In the final part, I dont know how but I hit something and blew up, trying to escape from the blast. Sucks. But at least I got further. The tip was good but I just need better execution.
