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...

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 tried it last night with the Tie Interceptor and rubber bands. It worked flawlessly. Even flew out of the Death Star with the Tie interceptor.

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.

Thank you very much for this little gem. I finally finished this game tonight and beat this last level on my third try. I used tape rather than a rubber band, but it was gorgeous nonetheless. This is going down as one of the 1000's that I'm most proud of.

This worked great! I beat Into the Death Star on my second try. I couldn't find a rubber band so I just used my thumb.

Yes you do, you don't get access to shoot the core unless you get rid of the electric thingys.

I haven't tried the rubber band yet but I'm getting desperate and my sister wants her game back! Hopefully it will work for me too!

Thx for the great tips.

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.
