For the Final Gauntlet, or trial 10. I got platinum on my first try. If you use a charged level 3 saber throw, you'll kill any of them mechs with approx 2 throws. Extremely easy and quick. Even if you don't charge it and spam, it's still faster than trying to hack and slash them. Just deal with the other soldiers as you normally would. I just thought i'd give some help on the mechs.

I wouldn't take the chance. You have to do the challenges either way, and with the older file, you have more helpful crystals (compared to the default, which adds nothing).

I'm assuming you're asking because you've upgraded your saber abilities to rank three, and want to make things easier on yourself?

The Combat Trial isn't too terribly difficult at rank three (which doesn't mean I can easily get a platinum), but there's definitely a lot of trial and error involved in getting gold. I think it made the achievements even more interesting, for me.

im sure you know this, but for the last three combos, the space is a pause. you shouldnt press x until he has almost completed the previous x motion.

I got 54.990 on the first Combat Trial and was pissed.
After a few more tries I got gold.
Not upgrading the Force Power of the Saber made it really easy.

I can confirm that the challenges do not combine across save files for the purpose of achievements. I had all challenges at gold (or platinum) except for one, which I then tried on a different save. After getting platinum on the separate save file, "Champion" did not pop.

Finally got combat took a while, kept on getting 54 seconds, once I got the timing right on the last one, keeping an eye for the uppercut end to start the last section got 59 seconds which was great.

This is Helpful, but the Trials are alomst as annoying as MK vs DC's Combo Challenges. WTF!? I bet it's some programmer or what-have-you that worked on Both games that came up with these "Challenges" since Midway Dissolved he got a Job at Lucas Arts & screwed us again.

I'm surprised so many people are struggling with this. I'm usually the one who can't get an achievement or two, but I don't think I've ever completed a game faster than this.

I found the challenges to be ridiculously easy, albeit with a butt load of trial and error (especially on the speed challenges). I think some of you (you know, the people with a million completed games and ten billion gamer points) are really stretching the truth on some of our struggles.

Just need the

the combo challenge
retrieve holocron
and the last one.

Last one doesn't seem to bad now that I know charged saber throw is a quick kill, but the first one is giving me problems because of being upgraded to level 3. I don't even want to try holocron retrieval

If you can do it try this method for the retrieval trial I haven't tried it, it's very quick, but looks tricky to master.
But I used this for the route, got to use dash jump dash (with force)

Combo one that last one is pain took quite a few tries before I had this one down, but you need to look for the upper cut after the first 4 X

So it's a quick XXXX look for the upper cut end then XXXX, a user called cod veteran had a good vid for this with an explanation, it's post number 27.

You just got to ignore the x's on screen and look at starkiller for his movements, once you see the spot you need to start the 2nd x's on it becomes much easier.

if the controls werent shitty, these would also be easier to do.

fuck these lazy developers who couldnt do anything better with their time or money. these challenges are pathetic. we should have gotten a better, longer campaign than some stupid challenges.

If you spent as much time practicing as you did complaining about the "shitty controls," you could have had the golds by now.

What exactly do you plan to teach the developers, because you can't do something right the first time?

The pause gets bigger, the first 2 are quite quick taps of X's, last one really got to watch him for the upper cut once you see that you'll get it every time.

It really is practise, what I did when I knew I couldn't get the time is do the last combo, once I hit the first X after the pause, is stop then try it again, then repeat till the time ran out means I didn't have to do all the combos to get there to practise.

Spent about 4 hours trying to do the Retrieval Trial. First attempt tonight, done it in 45 secs . Not brilliant but good enough for me. It was really starting to piss me off.
Found a good video on youtube which made all the difference.
