SW:EAW: Forces of Corruption - Hypori
Star Wars: Empire at War - Hypori
This is a hint / walkthrough for a planet in Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. The index of all our guides for Empire at War: Forces of Corruption is here.
Hypori becomes accessible during Mission 11 (Visions of the Past).
This is not accessible in the Campaign.
You can leave Tyber Zann at the landing zone and rush / stealth Urai Fen to the controls. Turn on Tyber Zann's Personal Cloaking Field if any Droidekas go after the initial Reinforcement Point. Don't call any reinforcements yet.
In doing this, you are saving yourself a lot of fighting and saving the Droidekas for later when you can gain control of them.
Tyber Zann is automatically moved to the first set of factory controls for the cutscene where Bossk joins you. Any reinforcements you had called down stay wherever they are. Rush the nearest Hutt Reinforcement Point with all three heroes. Secure it (probably using Bossk's flamethrower on the Pod Walkers and plasma grenade on the infantry) and then call down your reinforcements.
At this point, if you remain at the Reinforcement Point, Jabba the Hutt's troops coming from the third Reinforcement Point (counting from left to right) will not have you in their line of sight and may completely stop. If you like you can just wait there until Urai Fen controls the factory and you can send the expendable Droidekas to take care of Jabba the Hutt's forces.
The Hutt troops from the last Reinforcement Point may follow Urai Fen, so make sure he is cloaked and send the Droidekas against any forces headed for the Droidworks first.
Jabba the Hutt's forces are large enough that a single turret of any kind won't last very long. But they like to clump up and a single thermal detonator from a Defiler can clear the lot of them.
After this mission, you control Hypori and are given a garrison of two Droideka units. Later Corruption missions may require Droidekas, so keep them around even if you don't use them.
Since you control the planet, you cannot Corrupt it. And since the Spread Corruption option was not available before, you cannot access the Black Market corruption on this planet.
Crusader-class Gunships also become available after this mission and you can build them anywhere you have a Space Station level 2+.
