SWTOR Space Missions Guide

Star Wars: The Old Republic offers two different space combat modes – Galactic Starfighter, which is an intense and indepth free-flight 12-vs-12 player-vs-player combat mode, and old school space missions, which are solo space missions on rails that have been around since the launch of the game. The solo space combat missions range from being a fun and relaxing minigame to incredibly hard missions that very few players have completed. In this video, we’ll be going over how to play space missions, what order to do the missions in, where to get ship upgrades and equipment, and tips on how to play.

WARNING: There is a nasty bug when you reach the later space missions and space operations that reward you with Reputation items. If you accept the mission rewards while you are still in space, you will not get the Reputation added to your Reputation points. The work-around is to press your ESC key to escape out of the rewards, then press ESC again to open the menu, then leave the space battle. You can then safely accept the reward once you are back in the main game. The reputation items are the green and blue bordered items with a green or blue star on the top right of the item icon.

How to Start

To start your first space mission, all you need to do is right click the small blue terminal on your ship with a yellow quest symbol over it, usually located near the bridge of your ship. Players receive their ship after completing their second planet, Dromund Kaas imperial side and Coruscant Republic side, and you can do space missions as low as level 12 once you have your ship.

Using the terminal will play a short introductory cutscene where you’ll be invited to join an elite squadron, and you’ll automatically be given your first space combat mission. To start your first mission, right click your galaxy map on the bridge of your ship. The mission will be marked with a yellow triangle on your map and labelled with its name, and you can click it to get started, then click Travel Now. The first mission is fun and relaxing and you don’t need any ship equipment or upgrades. After you finish your first mission, unfortunately the path to the next mission is not very clear – so I’ve put together a guide later in this video about what order you should do the next missions in.

Free-to-Play

If you are on a Free-to-Play or preferred account, you can play up to ten Space Missions per character per week. Then you will have to wait for the week to reset, or do space missions on a second character instead. Apart from this restriction, Free-to-Play and Preferred players have access to all the same Space Missions and rewards as Subscribers, except ship equipment bought form the vendor costs more than a Subscriber would pay in in-game currency and commendations. Unlike normal purple-bordered gear, Ship Equipment is not restricted by the Artifact Authorization unlock, which means you can equip the best Ship Equipment in the game even if you’re a free-to-play player.

 

Controls

Once you start your first mission, space combat controls are incredibly simple compared to the rest of the game.

Movement

Moving your ship in space combat is very easy, as half the work is taken care of you by the space combat being on rails – this means your ship will make a basic flight path without you even doing anything. There is no throttle controls – you’ll simply move forward automatically. You’ll be able to move your ship within the confines of your screen by moving your mouse in the direction of the screen you want your ship to move in to. You can also use the WASD keys to move if you prefer. Movement is used mainly to dodge asteroids or other obstacles, and to avoid enemy fire. If you see blaster fire coming from the left of the screen, you can move your ship to the right to avoid it.

Barrel Roll

Your space bar will cause your ship to do a barrel roll, which is a defensive maneuver you can use to avoid enemy fire. You can combine it with moving around the screen with your mouse to avoid even more blaster bolts coming your way.

Blasters

To fire your blasters and attack enemy ships, hover your mouse over your target and right click. Where your mouse is is where your blaster bolt will lead, so if you’re used to more complicated space games, you don’t need to lead your target and aim ahead in these simplified space missions. You can also hold down your left mouse button for continuous fire. You have unlimited ammo when it comes to blaster fire. Some enemies only need a shot or two to go down, like basic fighter ships, while other enemies need many shots to go down. It’s good to get in the habit of figuring out how many shots an enemy target needs, so you can hit them with your blasters that many times, then instead of continuing to fire at them until you see them explode, move on to the next target once you’ve reached that number of shots. When you first start off with no equipment, basic enemy fighters will take two clicks worth of damage and then they’ll spiral off and explode.

Missiles

Your missiles are strong attacks you can use to take out more difficult targets. To use a missile, right click on a target. This will place a blue circle around the target, and the missile will auto-lock on to the target and be fired at it. You do not need to keep your mouse on the target after your fire the missile and can move on to other targets if you want. You can also fire multiple missiles at multiple targets at once by right clicking and dragging your mouse over the targets – this is great if you want to hit targets that are all clumped together in one spot. You can also misss with your missiles, so don’t shoot them off into empty space.

You’ll have a limited amount of missiles based on your ship’s equipment, and you can see how many missile you have on the bottom right of your screen. You start off with 20 if you don’t have any equipment yet.

The four yellow missiles on the bottom right of your screen represent how many missiles you have loaded up. You can have up to four loaded at a time. So if you use all four at once, you’ll need to wait for them to regenerate before you can fire another missile. If you’re right clicking a target, and no missile is firing, it’s usually because your missiles bay is empty and needs a few seconds to load up with missiles again.

Most targets don’t require missiles, but missiles can help you take down targets that have more health faster. You don’t need to use missiles on basic enemies, as you can simply shoot them down with a few shots. You can save your missile for targets with a yellow border around them which are your main missions objectives,

or you can use them on targets with orange circles around them that have more health like large turrets, shields, or engines.

As you upgrade your ships equipment over time, you’ll also receive additional abilities. A majority of these upgrades can be purchased from the Starship Upgrades vendor in the Galactic Trade Network section of the Republic or Imperial fleet, in the cages on the outside of the ring. If you are just starting out, I actually highly recommend not upgrading your ship at all until you start finding the missions difficult, as there’s a really fun sense of progression in upgrading your ship over time. Back in the day, this was achieved by playing space missions as you levelled up, since the equipment pieces were all level gated. These days, you’ll want to replicate this sense of progression by not over gearing your ship for the easier missions. Returning to the easier missions later with lots of upgrades can be a lot of fun, as many have hidden objectives, and there’s a big difference in completing them with a basic ship versus one that’s fully upgraded.

Shields

You can get your first ship shield and shield regenerator at character level 16 for 650 credits each. Your shield protects your ship form taking damage, and can regenerate your shield over time if you have a shield regenerator. Your shields are represented by a blue ring around the icon of your ship on the bottom left of your screen. If the blue shields circle runs out, then any shots your ship takes will hurt its health, represented by the red bar beside your ship’s icon. If your health reaches zero, you lose the mission.

You can let your ship’s shield regenerate if you stop firing your blaster.

Power Conversion Module

Once your character is level 25, and you have earned 30 Fleet Commendations by doing the dailies, or at level 50 if you have 200,000 credits, you can buy a Power Conversion Module for your ship that will let you switch your power between your shields and your blasters. This is not needed for the earlier missions, but becomes very important in the later missions.

1 Key – Power to Blasters: Your 1 key on your keyboard will switch your power to your blasters, which will cause you blast cannons to do more damage, but your shield regeneration will be cut in half.

2 Key – Power to Shields: Your 2 key on your keyboard will switch your power to your shields, which will boost your shield regeneration significantly, but it will cause your blast cannons to do very little damage.

To regenerate your shields normally, once you have a shield equipped, you just stop firing. With a Power Conversion module, you can stop firing and press your 2 key to regenerate your shields faster. When your shields are good to go you can switch over to your blasters again by pressing your 1 key.

If you want to go back to a balanced mode, you can re-press the last 1 or 2 key you pressed. You can see if either one is active by a small blue bar at the bottom of the icon on the bottom left.

Electronic Warfare Pod

Once your character is level 35, and you have earned 90 Fleet Commendations by doing the dailies, or at level 50 if you have many credits for the GTN, you can buy an Electronic Warfare Pod for your ship that will let you jam the enemy ships and turrets, causing enemies to not be able to target you for ten or fifteen seconds. To activate your jammers, press the 3 key on your keyboard. You can still get hit by stray shots, but you’ll be shot a lot less while you have the glowing yellow aura around your ship. You can use this once every 2 minutes and 30 seconds. In some missions you’ll want to save it for specific parts of the route, while in other missions you can use it whenever you’re in a pickle. Most missions range between 3 to 5 minutes so you’ll only get to use it once or twice per space mission.

EMP Generator

Once your character is level 35, and you have earned 150 Fleet Commendations by doing the dailies, or at level 50 if you have many credits for the GTN, you can buy an EMP Generator for your ship. Your EMP is an extremely powerful attack that does a large amount of damage to nearby enemies (and allies). To activate your EMP, press the 4 key on your keyboard. This will send a pulse attack out all around your ship that will damage anything within range. You can only use your EMP attack once every 4 minutes, so in most missions you’ll only be able to use it once per fight, so time is wisely.

Proton Torpedos

Once your character is level 50, and you have earned 50 Fleet Commendations by doing the dailies, you can buy Proton Torpedos for your ship. Proton Torpedos are a special type of missile for your ship for attacking large, often hidden, targets. to use your normal missiles, you simply right click your target to lock on and fire. To fire a Proton Torpedo, you click and hold your right mouse button on your target and a new type of red targeting circle will appear as the torpedo locks on. It will flash a different symbol once locked on, and you can release to fire. Proton torpedos only work on certain targets and will not work on basic enemies or basic large ship turrets or shields. Your only have 4 proton torpedos, and they are represented by a purple triangle shape on the bottom right of your screen.

Reputation

Reputation is a way of gaining favor with different groups by completing quests for them. As you level up your reputation rank, more rewards for that reputation track become available. The solo space combat reputation was one of the earliest reputation groups added, and is one of the least fleshed out of all the reputation tracks. You can only earn Reputation for space missions from the most difficult missions, as the earlier missions do not reward reputation.  There are only three ways to earn Space Reputation. The first is to complete each of the six one-time heroic space missions, which will each reward you with a blue reputation item. The second is to complete the most difficult original space mission, called The Impossible Sector Republic side and Ascendancy Barrier Imperial side, and once you’ve complete the one-time mission for that quest, you’ll be granted an Operation of the same name, which is a quest you can do once per day that asks you to repeat The Impossible Sector Republic or Ascendancy Barrier and will reward you with a green reputation item. The final and main way to earn space reputation is through the heroic daily operations. To unlock these dailies that give you a blue reputation item, first you need to run the one-time space mission associated with that operation. Which heroic operation is actually available depends on the day of the week, and a different heroic operation becomes available every week. If you haven’t completed the matching one-time space mission for the operation of the day, you won’t see it show up until you complete it. [[test sunday rewards and check monday]]

WARNING: There is a nasty bug when you reach the later space missions and space operations that reward you with Reputation items. If you accept the mission rewards while you are still in space, you will not get the Reputation added to your Reputation points. The work-around is to press your ESC key to escape out of the rewards, then press ESC again to open the menu, then leave the space battle. You can then safely accept the reward once you are back in the main game. The reputation items are the green and blue bordered items with a green or blue star on the top right of the item icon.

  • Green Reputation Item: 270 Reputation Points + 10% Guild XP boost, 135 for Free-to-play

  • Blue Reputation Item: 630 Reputation Points + 10% Guild XP boost, 315 for Free-to-play
  •   Purple Reputation Item: 1750 Reputation Points + 10% Guild XP boost, 875 for Free-to-play

So if you run all six of the one-time heroic missions on your character, you won’t even reach the newcomer rank. From there, you can complete the green reputation daily and blue reputation daily each day of the week, which would net you 900 reputation points a day or 6,300 reputation points per week. To reach legend rank, you’d need to run dailies for 74 days total. If you ran just the blue heroic daily on three characters per day every day, it would take you a a little over a month to reach Legend rank. There are only three item rewards for the reputation track which all also cost many credits, and there are two title rewards.

  • Outsider – 0 Reputation
  • Newcomer – 0/5,000 Reputation (5,000 total points needed)
  • Friend – 0/7,500 Reputation (12,500 total points needed)
  • Hero – 0/10,000 Reputation (22,500 total points needed)
  • Champion – 0/20,000 Reputation (untested) (42,500 total points needed)
  • Legend – 0/30,000 Reputation (untested) (72,500 total points needed)

To see your current space reputation, press Y on your keyboard or choose Legacy from the menu at the top of the screen, and in the Reputation section hover over the Republic Hyperspace Armada or the Imperial First Mobile Fleet. You can only earn 12,000 reputation per week, and if you earn any additional, the reputation item will go in to your inventory instead of being automatically consumed once you accept the mission reward.

The rest of the rewards only cost Fleet Commendations, and do not have a reputation requirement. Fleet commendations can be earned by completing the one-time quests as well as the daily Operation quests. Unfortunately, Fleet Commendations are not legacy-bound, so you can only spend them on the character you earned them on. You can see how many Fleet Comms your character has in the currency tab in your inventory. If you complete all the original one-time space missions, you’ll earn 38 commendations, and for each of the heroic one-time missions, you’ll earn 20 commendations for each one. After that, you can earn commendations from the different repeatable daily quests. If you ran through all the original dailies, which would be fourteen missions, you can earn 100 commendations per day, 700 a week, and doing a heroic daily will get you can extra 40 commendations per day and 80 on Sundays for 320 a week. So if you ran every space operation every day for a week, you’d earn 1,020 commendations total. I do not recommend running this many though, and instead I recommend once you have played all the one-time space missions, just play the chosen heroic space mission for the day for a good amount of fleet comms and reputation. If you aren’t up to playing once a day per week, you can also log in, go to your ship and pick up the heroic Operation of the day, and then play all the operations on the weekend, as they will stay in your quest log even after the chosen day has passed.

If what you’re looking for is the Fleet Commendation rewards and don’t care about the space missions themselves, you may want to check out Galactic Starfighter, the space player-vs-player mode, as its Daily and Weekly quests also reward Fleet Commendations. There is a terminal section of the fleet you can pick them up from, and the Daily rewards 50 Fleet Commendations for playing 2 matches or winning 1, and the Weekly has you play 10 or win 5 matches and gives you 300 Fleet commendations. If you played and won a match or two every day of the week for the daily plus an extra three matches to make the weekly, you could earn 650 Fleet commendations per week on your character.

Rewards

There are not very many rewards for space Missions compared to the other Reputation tracks. However, the Space Mission reputation rewards are probably some of the rarest reputation rewards you will see in the game as so few players have mastered the difficult space missions that reward you with reputation points!

Titles

  • Hero of Deep Space: Hero rank reputation (legacy title)
  • Hyperspace Legend: Legend rank reputation (legacy title)
  • Republic Ace: Completed all original Republic space missions (legacy title, Republic characters only)
  • Imperial Ace: Completed all original Imperial space missions (legacy title, Republic characters only)
  • Flyboy: Complete a space mission (male character title)
  • Flygirl: Complete a space mission (female character title)
  • The Pilot: Complete Syvris Evacuation (Republic) or Taspan Ambush (Empire) (character title)
  • Hot Shot Pilot: Complete the final original space mission, The Impossible Sector (Republic) or Ascendancy Barrier (Empire) (character title)

Completing the first mission Fondor Escort Republic side and Jabiim Escort Imperial side will also each grant you an easy 20 Cartel Coins through achievements. As far as I can tell there are no hidden achievements and no additional rewards from achievements, though there are some fun achievements that will ask you to complete the hidden bonus objectives in the different space missions.

Ship Equipment & Upgrades

As you progress through the space missions, you’ll find they get harder and harder, and you’ll eventually need to upgrade your ship’s equipment which will make your ship stronger. Whne space missions were first launched, the idea was that you’d play space missions as you levelled up, and you’d be gated in which equipment you should use by your character’s level. However, if you’re jumping in to space missions at a high level, you’ll technically be able to equip some of the best space mission equipment right away if you have enough credits. However, this makes the early space missions ridiculously easy and removes a lot of the fun and progression, so I highly recommend not upgrading your ship at all until you reach a space mission you can’t pass, and then only upgrade your gear by one level from the vendor, and only pick up the special upgrades including the EMP and Torpedos after you have done a full run of the space missions without them.

A majority of your ship upgrades can be purchased from the Ship Upgrades vendor in the Galactic Trade Market section of the fleet, some are a reward from specific missions, while others can be crafted and bought and sold on the GTN. You don’t need to upgrade your ship for the early missions, but the later missions will absolutely require that you upgrade your ship as much as you can. The basic ship upgrades for tier 1, 3 and 5 are available directly form the vendor for a small amount of credits. The in between upgrades, 2 and 4, are crafted, but I recommend skipping them all together. The tier 6 upgrades are crafted, and the tier 7 upgrades, the best ship gear in the entire game, are available through a combination of the vendor with fleet comms, the vendor for credits, and from crafting and the GTN.  You’ll also get the grade 2, 4, and 6 Beam Charger equipment exclusively from the one-time space missions. You can complete the original space missions with grade 5 gear, you don’t need the special crafted grade 6 and 7 gear. I do however recommend picking up a Power Conversion Module once you get about 5 missions in, which costs either 20 Fleet Commendations, or 200,000 Credits, from the vendor, which will let you switch power between shields and blasters. After you’ve played through once, have fun going through the earlier missions a second time and doing the daily repeatable quests as well as all the hidden bonus objectives with your upgraded ship.

Grade 7 Ship Upgrades

Once you have finished the original round of space missions, you’ll want to fully upgrade your ship gear as much as possible to go in to what’s known as the heroic space missions. These are the level 50 space missions, and it’s recommended to go in to these with as much Grade 7 ship gear as you can get. They are incredibly hard and many players get stuck on them. The Grade 7 ship upgrades are a bit confusing so we’ll get through them one by one. If you can’t afford them you can try it with the Grade 6 equipment that comes from crafting, but I have not tested this.

Your Proton Torpedo Tube, if you haven’t picked it up yet, can only be bought with 50 Fleet Commendations from the vendor.

Your Grade 7 Beam Generator, Shield Regenerator, Beam Charger, Ship Armor and EMP can all be bought from the vendor for 350 Fleet Commendations, which is quite steep. However, these items are not bound, so if you have credits, you might be able to buy these from the GTN from other players who are looking to convert their Fleet Commendations in to credits. If you’re in a guild, you may want to check in with any players who do Galactic Starfighter if they’re willing to pick up any of the Fleet Commendation equipment for you for a discount compared to the GTN, as GSF players may have more Fleet Commendations than they know what to do with. GSF is also a great way to earn Fleet Commendations if you’d rather buy them for 350 Fleet Commendations per piece and avoid the multi-million price tag on the GTN. You get 50 commendations from the short GSF daily, 300 for the weekly, can can earn a total of 650 Fleet Commendations per week on your character. If you want to earn Fleet Commendations from the old school space missions, you can earn 100 per day by doing all eight of the daily operation missions, which is a total of 14 space missions, and 700 commendations per week, or if you have limited time, you can run just the hardest two operations, which is the last three original space missions, for 40 Fleet Commendations per day and 280 a week.

The rest of the Grade 7 ship equipment is crafted by Cybertech crafters who have gotten the schematic. The schematics are incredibly expensive, at 350 to 500 Commendations each. These are not extremely expensive on the GTN, so if you don’t care about crafting, I recommend saving your commendations and just buying them from the GTN instead.

  • Concussion Missile Magazine: Missile Magazine – Crafted / GTN
  • Deflector Shield: Energy Shield – Crafted / GTN
  • Improved Electronic Warfare Pod: Electronic Warfare Pod (8th Slot) – Crafted / GTN

The final piece, your Improved Power Conversion Module, can be bought directly from the vendor for 200,000 credits. Be aware that some players try to pull a scam where they buy it from the vendor then sell it on the GTN for millions of credits, to sell it to players who don’t realize you can get it directly from the vendor.

Here’s how much I spent in pure credits upgrading my ship to Grade 7 on the Star Forge server near the end of 2020:

  • Concussion Missile Magazine – 1 mill
  • Deflector Shield – 1 mill
  • Improved Electronic Warfare Pod  – 1 mill
  • Blast Condenser – 33 mill (only 1 for sale) or 350 fleet commendations
  • Deflection Amplifier – 35 mill (only 1 for sale) or 350 fleet commendations
  • Laser Cannons – 32 mill (only 2 for sale) or 350 fleet commendations
  • Durasteel Armor – 30 mill (only 2 for sale) or 350 fleet commendations
  • Improved Electromagnetic Pulse – 34 mill (only 2 for sale) or 350 fleet commendations
  • Improved Power Conversion Module – 200,000 from vendor

Missions

There are fourteen original space missions, and 6 more very difficult heroic missions. These missions are named differently on Imperial and Republic side, but are essentially the same once you jump in to them except for the types of ships you are flying and fighting. To access the replayable space missions, go to your galaxy map on your ship, zoom in to a sector by clicking it, then clicking a space missions on the map. These missions by themselves only reward credits and xp.

In addition to the replayable missions that you access through the galaxy map, there’s also a one-time mission from the terminal on your ship to complete each of the different space missions once. These one-time quests reward you with space commendations, which can be spent on rewards and equipment. Some of these one-time quests also reward you with ship equipment upgrades. The most difficult one-time quests also reward reputation. If you are a low level, more missions will show up on your terminal as you level up, all the way up until level 50. You can see the suggested level in the list below, but the quest will likely pop up on your terminal before then, and you can complete it early if you want, the only thing holding you back might be your ship equipment.

Unfortunately, in the mission terminal, the missions are not sorted in the way that you are supposed to complete them. Here’s the actual order of the missions in terms of level and difficulty.

As you complete those one-time missions, you’ll also unlock daily missions called Operations, that will require you to complete one or more specific space missions, and are a repeatable way to earn commendations. To unlock an Operation, you need to first do the one-time missions associated with that Operation. Then you can do the Operation itself.  If you’re just starting out, you can choose to simply go through all the one-time missions in order from easiest to hardest, or you can stop and complete the Operations as you unlock them. So if you’re trying to go through the entire space combat path in a day including the daily repeatable Operations, you’d actually end up repeating many of the missions twice, which can actually be a lot of fun as you get better at them. If you need a list of the correct path to unlock the missions and earn rewards, check the description of this video for a link to the written guide.

WARNING: There is a nasty bug when you reach the later space missions and space operations that reward you with Reputation items. If you accept the mission rewards while you are still in space, you will not get the Reputation added to your Reputation points. The work-around is to press your ESC key to escape out of the rewards, then press ESC again to open the menu, then leave the space battle. You can then safely accept the reward once you are back in the main game. The reputation items are the green and blue bordered items with a green or blue star on the top right of the item icon.

I’m doing the old-school SWTOR Space missions. I heard on the first Republic one, Fondor Escort, there’s a hidden bonus objective called "Knock Out the Enemy Command" where you take down the big ship with a Proton Torpedo. I don’t see it in achievements. Is it still possible? from swtor

Becomes visible the first shield generator you take down.

Take Down the Enemy Command Center (Bonus)

The enemy command center shows up on the large Imperial dreadnaught ship that appears near the end of the space battle. The command center is located on the top of the ship in the very back and requires a proton torpedo to destroy. You have a lot of time to lock on to it so there’s no rush.

You’ll only get this objective once per day, so if you replay this mission on the same day, you can still shoot down the communications array but you won’t get any credit for it and no bonus objective will pop up.

Thanium Disruption

Character Level: 50

Recommended Ship Upgrades: 7

Objectives

  • Take Out the Shuttle
  • Eliminate the Mandalorian Commander
  • Destroy the Imperial Frigate

Bonus Missions

  • No Pilot Stands a Chance (Bonus): Destroy Mercenary Ships 0/4

Thanium Disruption is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy two strong ships with a gold border around them and a frigate, while navigating a minefield and an asteroid field. They key to the mission is maximizing your time on the two ships with gold circles around them, and making good use of your Warfare pod that makes you untargettable and your EMP to take out the mines and frigate turrets. I found this mission to be the most frustrating of the six heroic space missions.

The mission starts of with a ton of asteroids to avoid. You’ll likely crash in to these a few times as you learn the route. There will also be two strong mercenary ships. Your goal is to destroy them while not crashing, and no losing any of your ship health. Switch your power to blasters with the 1 key, and shoot and missile those ships whenever they peek out behind the asteroids. As soon as they’re done, switch power to shields, and make your way around the asteroids until you reach the minefield.

At the first minefield patch, there are less mines than the second section, so instead of using our EMP and Warfare pod here, we’ll instead keep our shields up and avoid as much damage as possible by not shooting, pressing spacebar to do a barrel roll, and move our ship in a whirlpool circle around the screen to avoid as many shots as we can from the first set of mines. There’s going to be a Miner Tender in here, you can ignore it. You don’t need to shoot the mines.

After the first patch of mines, you’ll see the thicker second patch that has a large yellow target in it, that’s the Frigate for the mission objective. As you make your way towards the second patch, trail your mouse over the smaller gold circle, that’s the shuttle When your curror turns red, fire off all your missiles on the shuttle.

Once you reach the second patch of mines, as soon as the mines start shooting at you, activate your Electronic Warfare Pod with your 3 key to avoid all the shots form the mines. While heading towards the large gold circle frigate, target the top back of the frigate with your missiles, to take down the shield generators, as they can’t be hit with the EMP as they are shielded. They take about two missiles each and there’s two of them. If you have extra time, hit the other orange targets which are the engines on the back of the ship and the orange circle at the nose of the ship. The more of the orange circles you destroy earlier the easier it is later. Don’t worry about the red circle You can also shoot at the smaller gold circle ship that’s flying away, and should be focusing hard on it once you pass the frigate.

Once you get close to the Frigate with the gold circle, use your EMP with your 4 key, which will destroy a ton of the mines and the turrets on the Frigate.

After that, it’s mostly a matter of focusing on the two gold ships and not crashing your ship on the asteroids path. During this chase sequence, you’ll mostly want to be in shield mode shooting missiles. However, when possible and your shields are full, flip over your power to blasters to get some extra shots on your two gold ships, otherwise you might not have enough time to destroy them before the mission ends. You will absolutely need to do this if you’re trying to do the bonus, which is to destroy a total of four of the Mercenary ships. You can also use your 3 key to make yourself untargettable and switch your power to blasters for a while when it comes back up after you used it the first time. You’ll also want to target the frigate’s remaining circles when you see it, and make sure it gets fully destroyed before you run out of time, I usually just point my mouse towards it and fire off missile with right click, since it’s usually hard to see the circles it has left at that point. You can continue targeting the frigate even as it speeds away at the end.

There’s one asteroid that I always crash on, you’ll make a hard turn around the left side of asteroid, go under an asteroid, and then go over one, but you’ll often clip the top of that third asteroid in the path you’re going over. To avoid this, after going around the left of the first asteroid, go tightly under the second one with as little room between you and it as possible, and that will give you enough time to clear the top of the third asteroid if you pull up immediately after you clear the second asteroid. This asteroid is probably the hardest part of the entire mission.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

My friend Aravail made a video guide with his tips,

No Pilot Stands a Chance (Bonus)

Hypori Escort

Character Level: 50

  • Destroy Enemy Sith Ships 0/3
  • Destroy Bridge on the Destroyer

Bonus Missions

  • Eliminate Enemy Frigates (Bonus): Destroy Imperial Frigates 0/4
  • Annihilate the Enemy (Bonus): Destroy Imperial Fighters 0/70

Hypori Escort is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. This mission is quite easy compared to the other six heroic space missions. In this mission, you will need to destroy three enemy ships, and destroy the bridge of the large ship. As a bonus, you can take down four frigates, and shoot down 70 small fighter ships.

At the very beginning of the mission, there are three frigates cruising around, use your missiles on their shield generators and blast down as much of them as you can, especially if you want the bonus. At the very least least take out their turrets, the red circles, to protect your escort ship.

When you see the bridge of the large ship, make sure to fire your torpedo, it will take two torpedo hits in two separate runs.

When the Sith ships show up, focus on them, as they do a lot of damage.

If you want to do the bonus to shoot down 70 small fighters, you’ll need to start early, but a majority of the ships are located at the end, which is where you’ll probably want to make use of your warfare pod to protect yourself, or while you’re fighting the Sith ships.

You can use your EMP on the rush of fighters at the very end, or when you are over the large ship making your torpedo runs.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

Baros Ambush

Character Level: 50

Recommended Ship Upgrades: 7

Objectives

  • Destroy Bridge on the Destroyer
  • Destroy Corvette Class Ships 0/2
  • Destroy Enemy Frigates 0/4

Bonus Missions

  • Cripple Their Forces (Bonus): Destroy Imperial Bombers 0/12
  • Annihilate The enemy (Bonus): Destroy Imperial Fighters 0/60

Baros Ambush is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy a bridge on a large ship, two corvettes with a lot of health, and four enemy frigates. As a bonus, you can destroy 12 of the bombers which are the stronger small ships often accompanying the corvettes, and destroy 60 normal small fighter ships.

You can use your EMP at the very beginning once all three ships become visible, then you just need to take down the orange circles on those frigates, using missiles for the shield generators. You can fairly easily destroy three of the four frigates in the beginning of the fight, which will leave you available to chase down the first corvette with blasters and missiles once it appears. For the frigate objective, to destroy a frigate, you need to destroy every target on it including the shields, engines and all turrets.

A good time to use your warfare pod is when you see a large pack of bombers with the second corvette. That way you can switch power to blasters and shoot them down.

You can hit the bridge with a torpedo fairly early in the fight, the second time you see it, it’s in the distance. Make sure to hit it a total of two times with torpedos, I usually hit it at the end in the final run past it.

You can use your EMP again near the end of the fight, one place you could use it is in the two frigates at the end, to get your final frigate if you already shot the three frigates at the beginning. There’s a frigate on the left and a frigate on the right, it’s easier to ignore the left one and fovus on the right one as you loop back around right behind it.

If you are trying to do the 60 fighters bonus, you will need to be very diligent with shooting down the small ships.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

New Cov Ice Field

Character Level: 50

Recommended Ship Upgrades: 7

Objectives

  • Destroy Defense Clusters 0/4
    Destroy Minelayer
    Destroy the Satellite Hardpoint

Bonus Missions

  • No Pilot stands a Chance (Bonus): Destroy Sith Ships 0/1
  • Annihilate The enemy (Bonus): Destroy Imperial Fighters 0/80
  • Eliminate Enemy Frigates (Bonus): Destroy Imperial Frigates 0/2

New Cov Ice Field is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy shielded clusters, destroy a protected satellite, and blow up a minelayer ship. This mission is all about timing and hitting your main targets whenever you see them available.

The clusters are groups of seven targets with gold circles around them, they look like a bunch of floating mines with a cannisters in the center. These targets can only be hurt by missiles as they are shielded. If you are using the Kuat Drive Yards Missile Magazine, Grade 6, you will need to carefully focus on the clusters, as you’ll need to hit each gold bordered target with two missiles, and you only have time to shoot about five each time you pass a cluster. As you fly, even when you are not facing a cluster, keep your eyes open on the corners of the screen to see if a cluster comes within range, even if it’s only briefly, to get another missile off, and you’ll have 150 missiles total. If you’re using the Concussion Missile Magazine, Grade 7, the mission is very different, and you’ll instead focus on hitting each of the cluster mines with one missile and the cannister in the center with two missiles. Don’t waste missiles or you’ll find yourself short, so save them for the clusters, the shield generators on the frigates for the bonus, the Sith ship, and the satellite. For all other targets, including the satellite shield generators, small ships, and all other frigate targets, use your blasters instead.

For the satellite, it’s protected by shield generators. You’ll need to shoot down the shield generators before you can hurt the satellite. You can use your EMP on the shield generators as well, or you can save it to use on the satellite itself once it is unprotected. You only get a limited amount of time on the satellite, so apart from the clusters, the satellite should be your second priority target even when you’re chasing down the Sith ship.

The minelayer is actually the easiest part of this entire mission and you can actually destroy it with your blasters in a single run if you focus your fire, and if you don’t destroy it the first time you see it you’ll easily blow it up the second time you see it.

Don’t forget to make use of your Electronic Warfare Pod, I used mine most when chasing down the Sith ship as it does a lot of damage, and you can shift power to your blasters and take out a big chunk of its health while your warfare pod is protecting you. The Sith ship is the strong ship that appears halfway through and you chase it around ice asteroids, it’s shaped like the Imperial Sith class ship.

If you want to do the frigate bonus, you need to completely destroy two frigates and all of their targets, including their shields, engines, and all turrets.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

Ardis Outpost Fortification

Character Level: 50

Recommended Ship Upgrades: 7

Objectives

  • Destroy Bombers 0/30
  • Destroy an Enemy Command Bridge
  • Take Out Imperial Frigates 0/3

Bonus Missions

  • No Pilot Stands A Chance (Bonus): Destroy Sith Ships 0/3
  • Annihilate the Enemy (Bonus): Destroy Imperial Fighters 0/50

Ardis Outpost is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy 30 of the powerful bombers with yellow circles, destroy the command bridge on a dreadnought, and take out three frigates. As a bonus, you can also destroy three of the strong Sith ships, and destroy 50 of the basic ships.

You’ll need almost all of your missiles for the gold circle bombers and for the shields on the back of the frigates, so whenever possible, use your blasters instead. This includes on the first and second set of gold circle bombers that show up, on frigate targets that aren’t shield generators, and on normal fighter ships.

You’ll be able to take out the Enemy Command Bridge very early in the fight with two Proton Torpedo hits. As soon as you get within range of the bridge, fire a Torpedo, then use your EMP if you want once you are close enough to the medium sized frigate, then fire your torpedo again, and that should destroy the bridge and get it out of the way. You’ll get quite a few chances to destroy the frigates, I suggest focusing on firing missiles at the shield generators on the top of the frigates, there’s two and each one takes two missiles. The rest of the targets can be taken out with blaster fire.

The hardest part of this mission is the Sith ship and the bombers. The Sith ship has a lot of health and hits very hard, and the bombers have a lot of health. The first two rounds of bombers you can take out with your blasters to save missiles. When the third round appears, there will be many bombers in multiple waves, and you will want to put your power to blasters and shoot as many as you can, and prepare to use your EMP. When the next wave gets close to you and you’re facing the space station, use your EMP to hurt a bunch of the bombers at once. Don’t rely on just your missiles and stay in shield mode, as if you do that it will take you nine missile per bomber and you’ll only be able to take down one or two per wave.

For the Sith Ships, you need to focus on putting your shields up, using your missiles, and shooting them with your power to blasters when they aren’t directly shooting at you. There are some gaps you can take advantage of where the Sith ship is shooting but not hitting you.

Don’t forget to mop up the last of any frigates when you aren’t shooting gold border bombers. You need to fully take down three frigates and all their targets, including their shields, engines and all their turrets.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

Regnant Station Assault

Character Level: 50

Recommended Ship Upgrades: 7

Objectives

  • Destroy Imperial Command Bridge
    Destroy Communications Array
    Destroy Defense Satellites 0/8

Bonus Missions

  • No Pilot Stands a Chance (Bonus): Destroy the Sith Ship
  • Eliminate Enemy Frigates (Bonus): Destroy Imperial Frigates 0/4
  • Annihilate the Enemy (Bonus): Destroy Imperial Fighters 0/40

Regnant Station Assault is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy a command bridge, a communications array on the bottom of the space station, and blow up eight satellites. For the bonus, you can destroy the Sith ship when it appears, completely destroy four medium sized frigates, and shoot down 40 normal fighter ships. This is my favorite heroic space mission and I believe it is the second easiest of the six.

This mission has a lot of objectives. As you fly, you’ll be keeping your eyes open for satellites to shoot at, while avoiding crashing in to the shipping containers.

When you see the communications array come in to view under the space station, lock a torpedo on to it. It will take two torpedos, and you’ll come back around a second time. The second time the communications array is hard to target, so wait until your cursor turns red before trying to lock on. Taking down the enemy command bridge on the big ship is the same thing, just watch for the bridge to appear with a gold circle and shoot it with a torpedo twice in separate runs.

There’s an evil shipping crate that will try and murder you partway through. You’ll know this is about to happen when you’re flying over and above the space station, facing a bunch of shipping crates, there’s a frigate behind them, and the Sith ship shows up in the middle of the screen. Pull up hard after you pass the first shipping crate to avoid hitting the second evil shipping crate.

A fun time to use your EMP is while you are chasing the Sith ship for the first time after the evil shipping crate, you’ll turn towards the space station, and a ton of small fighters will rush you. You can use your warfare pod to avoid their fire and shoot them all down, and / or your EMP to wipe them all out. If you don’t manage the destroy the Sith Ship here for the bonus, it will reappear later and you can chase it around some shipping crates when there’s no other objectives nearby. If you want to do the frigates bonus, make sure to take full advantage of thefrigates at the beginning of the mission and then work on any other ones you see as you go, and save enough missiles to take down the frigate’s shield generators.

  • Destroy the Republic Frigate

Bonus Missions

  • No Pilot Stands a Chance (Bonus): Destroy Mercenary Ships 0/4

Thanium Disruption is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy two strong ships with a gold border around them and a frigate, while navigating a minefield and an asteroid field. They key to the mission is maximizing your time on the two ships with gold circles around them, and making good use of your Warfare pod that makes you untargettable and your EMP to take out the mines and frigate turrets. I found this mission to be the most frustrating of the six heroic space missions.

The mission starts of with a ton of asteroids to avoid. You’ll likely crash in to these a few times as you learn the route. There will also be two strong mercenary ships. Your goal is to destroy them while not crashing, and no losing any of your ship health. Switch your power to blasters with the 1 key, and shoot and missile those ships whenever they peek out behind the asteroids. As soon as they’re done, switch power to shields, and make your way around the asteroids until you reach the minefield.

At the first minefield patch, there are less mines than the second section, so instead of using our EMP and Warfare pod here, we’ll instead keep our shields up and avoid as much damage as possible by not shooting, pressing spacebar to do a barrel roll, and move our ship in a whirlpool circle around the screen to avoid as many shots as we can from the first set of mines. There’s going to be a Miner Tender in here, you can ignore it. You don’t need to shoot the mines.

After the first patch of mines, you’ll see the thicker second patch that has a large yellow target in it, that’s the Frigate for the mission objective. As you make your way towards the second patch, trail your mouse over the smaller gold circle, that’s the shuttle When your curror turns red, fire off all your missiles on the shuttle.

Once you reach the second patch of mines, as soon as the mines start shooting at you, activate your Electronic Warfare Pod with your 3 key to avoid all the shots form the mines. While heading towards the large gold circle frigate, target the top back of the frigate with your missiles, to take down the shield generators, as they can’t be hit with the EMP as they are shielded. They take about two missiles each and there’s two of them. If you have extra time, hit the other orange targets which are the engines on the back of the ship and the orange circle at the nose of the ship. The more of the orange circles you destroy earlier the easier it is later. Don’t worry about the red circle You can also shoot at the smaller gold circle ship that’s flying away, and should be focusing hard on it once you pass the frigate.

Once you get close to the Frigate with the gold circle, use your EMP with your 4 key, which will destroy a ton of the mines and the turrets on the Frigate.

After that, it’s mostly a matter of focusing on the two gold ships and not crashing your ship on the asteroids path. During this chase sequence, you’ll mostly want to be in shield mode shooting missiles. However, when possible and your shields are full, flip over your power to blasters to get some extra shots on your two gold ships, otherwise you might not have enough time to destroy them before the mission ends. You will absolutely need to do this if you’re trying to do the bonus, which is to destroy a total of four of the Mercenary ships. You can also use your 3 key to make yourself untargettable and switch your power to blasters for a while when it comes back up after you used it the first time. You’ll also want to target the frigate’s remaining circles when you see it, and make sure it gets fully destroyed before you run out of time, I usually just point my mouse towards it and fire off missile with right click, since it’s usually hard to see the circles it has left at that point. You can continue targeting the frigate even as it speeds away at the end.

There’s one asteroid that I always crash on, you’ll make a hard turn around the left side of asteroid, go under an asteroid, and then go over one, but you’ll often clip the top of that third asteroid in the path you’re going over. To avoid this, after going around the left of the first asteroid, go tightly under the second one with as little room between you and it as possible, and that will give you enough time to clear the top of the third asteroid if you pull up immediately after you clear the second asteroid. This asteroid is probably the hardest part of the entire mission.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

My friend Aravail made a video guide with his tips for the Republic version of this missions.

If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. This mission is quite easy compared to the other six heroic space missions. In this mission, you will need to destroy three enemy ships, and destroy the bridge of the large ship. As a bonus, you can take down four frigates, and shoot down 70 small fighter ships.

At the very beginning of the mission, there are three frigates cruising around, use your missiles on their shield generators and blast down as much of them as you can, especially if you want the bonus. At the very least least take out their turrets, the red circles, to protect your escort ship.

When you see the bridge of the large ship, make sure to fire your torpedo, it will take two torpedo hits in two separate runs.

When the Sith ships show up, focus on them, as they do a lot of damage.

If you want to do the bonus to shoot down 70 small fighters, you’ll need to start early, but a majority of the ships are located at the end, which is where you’ll probably want to make use of your warfare pod to protect yourself, or while you’re fighting the Sith ships.

You can use your EMP on the rush of fighters at the very end, or when you are over the large ship making your torpedo runs.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

Baros Ambush is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy a bridge on a large ship, two corvettes with a lot of health, and four enemy frigates. As a bonus, you can destroy 12 of the bombers which are the stronger small ships often accompanying the corvettes, and destroy 60 normal small fighter ships.

You can use your EMP at the very beginning once all three ships become visible, then you just need to take down the orange circles on those frigates, using missiles for the shield generators. You can fairly easily destroy three of the four frigates in the beginning of the fight, which will leave you available to chase down the first corvette with blasters and missiles once it appears. For the frigate objective, to destroy a frigate, you need to destroy every target on it including the shields, engines and all turrets.

A good time to use your warfare pod is when you see a large pack of bombers with the second corvette. That way you can switch power to blasters and shoot them down.

You can hit the bridge with a torpedo fairly early in the fight, the second time you see it, it’s in the distance. Make sure to hit it a total of two times with torpedos, I usually hit it at the end in the final run past it.

You can use your EMP again near the end of the fight, one place you could use it is in the two frigates at the end, to get your final frigate if you already shot the three frigates at the beginning. There’s a frigate on the left and a frigate on the right, it’s easier to ignore the left one and fovus on the right one as you loop back around right behind it.

If you are trying to do the 60 fighters bonus, you will need to be very diligent with shooting down the small ships.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

New Cov Ice Field is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy shielded clusters, destroy a protected satellite, and blow up a minelayer ship. This mission is all about timing and hitting your main targets whenever you see them available.

The clusters are groups of seven targets with gold circles around them, they look like a bunch of floating mines with a cannisters in the center. These targets can only be hurt by missiles as they are shielded. If you are using the Kuat Drive Yards Missile Magazine, Grade 6, you will need to carefully focus on the clusters, as you’ll need to hit each gold bordered target with two missiles, and you only have time to shoot about five each time you pass a cluster. As you fly, even when you are not facing a cluster, keep your eyes open on the corners of the screen to see if a cluster comes within range, even if it’s only briefly, to get another missile off, and you’ll have 150 missiles total. If you’re using the Concussion Missile Magazine, Grade 7, the mission is very different, and you’ll instead focus on hitting each of the cluster mines with one missile and the cannister in the center with two missiles. Don’t waste missiles or you’ll find yourself short, so save them for the clusters, the shield generators on the frigates for the bonus, the Sith ship, and the satellite. For all other targets, including the satellite shield generators, small ships, and all other frigate targets, use your blasters instead.

For the satellite, it’s protected by shield generators. You’ll need to shoot down the shield generators before you can hurt the satellite. You can use your EMP on the shield generators as well, or you can save it to use on the satellite itself once it is unprotected. You only get a limited amount of time on the satellite, so apart from the clusters, the satellite should be your second priority target even when you’re chasing down the Sith ship.

The minelayer is actually the easiest part of this entire mission and you can actually destroy it with your blasters in a single run if you focus your fire, and if you don’t destroy it the first time you see it you’ll easily blow it up the second time you see it.

Don’t forget to make use of your Electronic Warfare Pod, I used mine most when chasing down the Sith ship as it does a lot of damage, and you can shift power to your blasters and take out a big chunk of its health while your warfare pod is protecting you. The Sith ship is the strong ship that appears halfway through and you chase it around ice asteroids, it’s shaped like the Imperial Sith class ship.

If you want to do the frigate bonus, you need to completely destroy two frigates and all of their targets, including their shields, engines, and all turrets.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

Kabal Station Defense

Character Level: 50

Recommended Ship Upgrades: 7

Objectives

  • Destroy Bombers 0/30
  • Annihilate an Enemy Command Bridge
  • Oblitereate Republic Frigates 0/3

Bonus Missions

Ardis Outpost is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy 30 of the powerful bombers with yellow circles, destroy the command bridge on a dreadnought, and take out three frigates. As a bonus, you can also destroy three of the strong Sith ships, and destroy 50 of the basic ships.

You’ll need almost all of your missiles for the gold circle bombers and for the shields on the back of the frigates, so whenever possible, use your blasters instead. This includes on the first and second set of gold circle bombers that show up, on frigate targets that aren’t shield generators, and on normal fighter ships.

You’ll be able to take out the Enemy Command Bridge very early in the fight with two Proton Torpedo hits. As soon as you get within range of the bridge, fire a Torpedo, then use your EMP if you want once you are close enough to the medium sized frigate, then fire your torpedo again, and that should destroy the bridge and get it out of the way. You’ll get quite a few chances to destroy the frigates, I suggest focusing on firing missiles at the shield generators on the top of the frigates, there’s two and each one takes two missiles. The rest of the targets can be taken out with blaster fire.

The hardest part of this mission is the Sith ship and the bombers. The Sith ship has a lot of health and hits very hard, and the bombers have a lot of health. The first two rounds of bombers you can take out with your blasters to save missiles. When the third round appears, there will be many bombers in multiple waves, and you will want to put your power to blasters and shoot as many as you can, and prepare to use your EMP. When the next wave gets close to you and you’re facing the space station, use your EMP to hurt a bunch of the bombers at once. Don’t rely on just your missiles and stay in shield mode, as if you do that it will take you nine missile per bomber and you’ll only be able to take down one or two per wave.

For the Sith Ships, you need to focus on putting your shields up, using your missiles, and shooting them with your power to blasters when they aren’t directly shooting at you. There are some gaps you can take advantage of where the Sith ship is shooting but not hitting you.

Don’t forget to mop up the last of any frigates when you aren’t shooting gold border bombers. You need to fully take down three frigates and all their targets, including their shields, engines and all their turrets.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.

Regnant Station Assault is one of the six extremely difficult heroic solo on-rails space missions in Star Wars: The Old Republic. To run this mission, you’ll want to be level 50 or higher, and have fully upgraded your ship with Grade 7 upgrades and Proton Torpedoes. If you can’t afford the Grade 7 equipment, you can complete these with Grade 6 equipment, but it is quite hard. Take a look at the equipment section of this guide if you haven’t geared up yet. You’ll want to have completed the easier space missions before you run this one, and can pick it up from the space missions quest terminal on your ship. In this mission, you’ll need to destroy a command bridge, a communications array on the bottom of the space station, and blow up eight satellites. For the bonus, you can destroy the Sith ship when it appears, completely destroy four medium sized frigates, and shoot down 40 normal fighter ships. This is my favorite heroic space mission and I believe it is the second easiest of the six.

This mission has a lot of objectives. As you fly, you’ll be keeping your eyes open for satellites to shoot at, while avoiding crashing in to the shipping containers.

When you see the communications array come in to view under the space station, lock a torpedo on to it. It will take two torpedos, and you’ll come back around a second time. The second time the communications array is hard to target, so wait until your cursor turns red before trying to lock on. Taking down the enemy command bridge on the big ship is the same thing, just watch for the bridge to appear with a gold circle and shoot it with a torpedo twice in separate runs.

There’s an evil shipping crate that will try and murder you partway through. You’ll know this is about to happen when you’re flying over and above the space station, facing a bunch of shipping crates, there’s a frigate behind them, and the Sith ship shows up in the middle of the screen. Pull up hard after you pass the first shipping crate to avoid hitting the second evil shipping crate.

A fun time to use your EMP is while you are chasing the Sith ship for the first time after the evil shipping crate, you’ll turn towards the space station, and a ton of small fighters will rush you. You can use your warfare pod to avoid their fire and shoot them all down, and / or your EMP to wipe them all out. If you don’t manage the destroy the Sith Ship here for the bonus, it will reappear later and you can chase it around some shipping crates when there’s no other objectives nearby. If you want to do the frigates bonus, make sure to take full advantage of thefrigates at the beginning of the mission and then work on any other ones you see as you go, and save enough missiles to take down the frigate’s shield generators.

There are no achievements for this mission, but there are some codex entries for the bonuses.
