"Jet Force Gemini" Enemies FAQ
By: RunecraftReborn  [runecraftreborn@hotmail.com]
Version1.0



This is my Jet Force Gemini FAQ for enemies.  Seeing as there are a lot of
different enemies, knowing how to kill each one can get confusing.  This is a
FAQ for defeating bad guys only.  It is not designed for anything other than
killing enemies.  I also am assuming that your arsenal is equipped with most of
if not all of the guns.  If you have any questions about the game please feel
free to e-mail me at [runecraftreborn@hotmail.com]  On that note, let us begin.

-------
Enemies
-------

1)Soldier Drone

-Soldier drones are your basic run of the mill drones.  They are the first
enemies that you run into.  Soldier drones are blue in color.  They are pretty
weak and can be killed with two or three shots from the pistol.  They fire weak
rounds but attack in groups so they can ping away at your health.  The most
efficient weapons to use are the pistol and the machine gun.


2)Sniper Drone

-Sniper drones are green colored drones that like to fire at you from high up.
These drones are very accurate and their ammunition deals more damage than the
soldier drones'.  Because they don't move, the best way to kill them is to use
the pistol or sniper rifle to pick them off from far away.


3)Ninja Drone

-I have a personal grudge against all ninja drones.  These drones are marked by
their brown color, otherwise they look just like soldier drones.  The problem
with these guys is that as soon as they see you, they run and kill every Tribal
that they see.  Ninja drones are pretty weak, so kill them as soon as you see
them.  Since these guys are just like soldier drones you have you choice of
weapons to kill them.  Just make sure that you kill them quickly.


4)Cyclops Drone

-Cyclops drones are airborne drones that hover in place.  They aren't very
accurate, but they attack in large groups which spray bullets everywhere.  It
takes only one hit to kill a cyclops drone.  The most effective weapon to start
off with is the machine gun.  Once the bulk of the drones are dead, you should
switch to a single-shot weapon like the plasma shotgun.


5)Arachno Drone

-Arachno drones are flying drones that do not appear in very large numbers but
are still very effective.  They move pretty quickly and get more accurate as
you move closer to them.  Arachno drones deal about as much damage per shot as
cyclops drones.  The safest way to kill these drones is to keep your distance
and fire at them with your plasma shotgun.  One second-level shot will kill
each one.


6)Stinger Drone

-The stinger drone is yet another flying drone.  These bad boys hover in place
moving left and right at various times, while firing some pretty damaging
cannon fire.  I find that it isn't worth the bullets to just blast away with
the machine gun.  Instead, you should take this time to practice aiming while
strafing.  Use your pistol or plasma shotgun to pick off each drone.


7)Stealth Drone

-Well what do you know, another flying drone.  Stealth drones are usually in
large groups.  They sweep towards you in pairs and try to blast you while the
rest of the group fires away.  Going up against these drones can turn ugly very
quickly.  The key here is in your strafing-while-aiming abilities.  First,
strafe to avoid the background fire.  Next, blast the incoming pair before they
get into firing range.  To do this, the best weapon would be the machine gun,
mainly because you will not have as much time to aim as is needed for a
single-shot weapon.  Finally, repeat this sequence until all drones are dead.


8)Octo Drone

-Octo drones are the most powerful of all the flying drones.  These flyers are
large, squid-like drones who rise straight up in the air.  Octo drones are slow
moving and slow to fire, but they fire extremely powerful laser shots.  The key
to not getting killed by these things is the fact that they take a while to
fire at you.  Knowing this,  you should use the tri-rocket launcher or (if need
be) the machine gun to kill them before they can begin firing at you.


9)Hornet Drone

-Hornet drones attack in flying swarms due to their weakness as individuals. 
Hornet drones hover in place and move sporadically as they continually fire
their two laser banks.  They are not very powerful, but they can ping away at
your health if you take too long to kill them.  Basically, all that you want to
do is blast away with your machine gun while strafing to avoid enemy fire.


10)Dragon Drone

-Dragon drones are possibly the most annoying of all the flying drones.  They
are marked by their constant "bouncing" up and down.  The key is to shoot these
loner drones as they fly upward and dodge as they fall downward.  They will
fire at you as they bound upward and float downward, so you should keep moving
to avoid getting hit.  I suggest using a fully charged plasma shotgun to off
these pests.


11)Rotor Drone

-Rotor drones act very much like dragon drones in that they constantly shoot
upward.  The differences are that the rotor drone will slowly float downward
instead of simply falling and that the rotor drone will only fire at you as it
floats downward.  You should shoot the drones as they float downward with your
plasma shotgun, preferably charged.


12)Armor Drone

-Armor drones are the first tough drones that you will meet.  They are pretty
much stationary, but they can take a beating.  They will fire missiles at you,
but there are pauses between each shot.  You have your choice of weapons.  You
can either use the tri-rocket launcher to dispose of these pests quickly or if
you don't have the tri-rocket launcher, you can use the machine gun.  Beware
that if you use the machine gun it will take long enough for the drone to get
some shots off.


13)Cockroach

-Cockroaches are very fast and stay very low to the ground.  This makes them
very hard to kill.  These are the only drones that don't use projectile
weapons, so it's just your luck that the simple act of touching them harms your
character.  These bugs are very tough, so you should definitely use one of your
stronger weapons such as the tri-rockets if not the machine gun at least.


14)Coward Drone

-Coward drones are aptly colored yellow.  They are basically gutless soldier
drones.  If you point your weapon at them they will instantly surrender to you,
but if you turn your back on them, they will whip out a grenade and throw it at
you.


15)Barricade Drone

-Barricade drones are just soldier drones with big, metal shields.  Normal
bullets will just be deflected by the shield.  To kill these bugs you can
either use the tri-rocket launcher which is expensive for such a weak opponent,
or you can use the shurikens which will cut right through the shield and kill
the drone.  You can also retrieve your shurikens after you use them.  To try
and use the machine gun will be a waste of ammo because 95% of the bullets will
be deflected.


16)Deflector Drone

-Deflector drones are faster barricade drones with smaller shields.  Now is
when you should use your machine guns and light these bugs up.  They will keep
their heads behind their shields and try to jam you.  You should let them run
by you shoot them in the back before they turn around.


17)Stag Drone

-Stag drones are big and purple, but they sure aren't Barney.  Stag drones can
take a lot of damage before they die.  They generally stay still except for
certain times when they make a straight run across the area that they are in. 
The best weapon to use is the tri-rocket launcher, and it will take about two
shots per kill.  For those of you who are weapons impaired you can still use
the machine gun but, it will take a long time.


18)Sentry Stag Drone

-Sentry stag drones are just stag drones with a second machine gun.  The added
fire power makes them more dangerous.  They will fire twice the amount of
bullets and not take rests between bursts.  You should use the homing missile
launcher so that you can fire on the run to avoid getting hit.  Sentry stag
drones are not very accurate but they fire enough rounds to make up for that
fact.


19)Rhino Drone

-Rhino drones are basically advanced soldier drones.  They carry the same
weapon as a soldier drone, but they use it differently.  Rhino drones will fire
at you, charge past you, and shoot you in the back.  They usually attack in
large groups, so use your machine gun and mow them down as they charge you.
Rhino drones are pretty quick, but they are also pretty weak.  So, you just
need to get two or three shots to hit with the machine gun.


20)Zombie Drone

-Zombie drones are drones that were messed up by King Jeff's magic.  These
drones can not be killed by bullets.  You must use the tri-rocket launcher,
homing missile launcher, plasma shotgun, or sniper rifle to kill them.  They
cannot really hurt you and will leave you alone if you leave them alone.


21)Zombie Stag Drone

-The zombie stag drones were also twisted by King Jeff's magic.  They are
really quite easy to kill.  The same rules apply for these drones as for the
normal zombie drones.  If you are forced into a confrontation with one of these
drones remember that they are terribly slow and it should take at the most two
tri-rockets to kill it.


22)Cyborg Drone

-Cyborg drones are probably the toughest drones in the game.  They are
characterized by half of their bodies being covered in metal.  They stand still
and fire rockets like there is no tomorrow.  Even if you use the tri-rocket
launcher, it will still take a few hits to bring a cyborg drone down.  If you
get hit by their ammo it will take a large chunk of health away from you. 
Strafe to avoid their fire and do not stop moving.


23)Renegade Drone

-The renegade drones are marked by their lack of a second tusk.  They fire a
similar weapon to the stag drone.  The renegade drones fire machine gun bullets
in bursts with pauses in between.  I suggest that you avoid their fire and
blast them with the homing missile launcher during the breaks in fire.  Just
keep moving to avoid their fire.


24)Infantry Weevil

-The infantry weevil is a big green bug with even bigger firepower.  These bugs
are slow moving.  They fire ammo that causes more damage than the armor drone's
and do not pause for as long between each shot.  You must destroy these bugs
quickly.  Use either the tri-rocket launcher or the homing missile launcher
fired quickly.  Do whatever you must, but do not get hit by the ammo fired by
an infantry weevil.


25)Weevil Trooper

-Weevil troopers are hulking, bluish green drones.  Weevil troopers do not
move, and they simply stand and shoot.  They fire nonexplosive, powerful rounds
with short pauses between bursts.  You should treat these bugs like you do the
infantry weevils.  Use the tri-rocket launcher or the homing missile launcher
to kill this bug as quickly as possible.  These drones are rather accurate, so
don't stand still and let it get trained on you.
