StarFox Assault Unlockables >300 Multiplayer Games

Recommended Posts

LoneWolf

I recently sat down and re-played Assault to prep myself for Zero. Albeit short, Assault still holds up pretty well and I definitely enjoyed myself.

The "meat" of Assault is frequently considered to be the multiplayer, so I got a few of my flatmates together and we fucked around for a few hours. I don't have much unlocked, but as I understand unlocks are based primarily (not entirely, there are some that are easily done in the story) off of number of matches run.

After doing some reading online, it seems like once you hit the >300-400 match count you unlock some pretty interesting stuff. Among the rumored unlockables are Krystal's Staff, General Scales, Rob, and even Andross. I can't seem to find any proof that these unlocks actually exist, and I don't want to spend an entire day grinding matches for nothing. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places and overlooking sources, but has anyone actually had any luck unlocking the later characters? Or is this just one of those cul-de-sac myths that 'that one kid' in your neighborhood used to spread?

The mentioned unlocks are fake, and originated from a false post on some game cheats website. Anything involving Andross in Assault is to be taken with a grain of salt. The most exotic things you can unlock are the Wolfen, and the hugely OP fireburst pods.

The only unlock I remember is if you don't loose a teammate on the final level you unlock Wolf in multi.

With that said I haven't finished Assault.

From what I can gather, it looks like not losing a teammate on all levels on any difficulty unlocks Wolf. As far as I know, the remainder of the Star Wolf team is also unlockable.

I figured a good amount of the rumors were 100% fake, but I'd definitely like to see what the actual endgame unlocks look like.

The endgame unlocks are extremely worthwhile.

Being someone that has 100% completion of the game, I can with 100% confidence confirm for you that no one from Star Wolf, aside from Wolf, is unlockable.  So, don't get your hopes up.  What you will have to look out for are:  A few match modes (Booster Pack Brawl, Booster Pack and Launcher Tilt), a few stages (Zones Sea Base, Simple Map 5), one ship (herp-derp Wolfen), and a few new weapons (Predator Rockets, Cluster Bombs).

You probably already know this, but you can unlock the Demon Sniper in VS Mode if you collect all of the S flags.  A bit tough, but manageable if you know exactly where they are.  Some are so weirdly placed and designed that you have to shoot at a random place in a corner or just at air where it's at.


And I've said my piece for today!

Got it! Seems like almost everything I've read so far is misinformation, surprised a lot of the Wikis etc that I found the og info on were left unedited. Thanks for clarifying!

Good way to fact-check that kind of stuff: YouTube. If there aren't any videos of people playing with those supposed unlocks, they don't exist. This is especially true for a 10-year-old game.

Getting the Demon Rifle is pretty hard, I think its getting every single S-flag.  I remember back in like 2005-2006 I was playing the game with my brothers and we remember looking at all these rumors like Andrew Oikonney's ship, things that don't sound like they would be in the game probably aren't...

I don't really see the worth in unlocking the Demon Sniper, seeing how hard it is to get, and considering how OP it might end up being if I did unlock it (Seeing how powerful the regular sniper rifle already is).

I imagine it could take down anything in one shot, so while it may level the playing field against Wolf in a Sniper battle, outside of that, I imagine in Wolf's hands, the whole battle could become one-sided, so with that assumption, I've never bothered yet.

That would have been a dream come true for me. Next, I want a Cornerian Cruiser to battle it with.

Well it becoming one-sided is pretty fun in assault. Wolf with the Wolfen and Demon Rife on corneria is pretty fun because everyone tries to get wolf. Corneria with jetpacks and Peppy is extremely one side, knowing that he is the only one who can scale the skyscraper, to the point that arwings cannot even touch him. It makes it fun to go after other characters.

Just imagine the Demon Launcher, but with a scope and unable to lock-on, and you have yourself the Demon Sniper.

The demon sniper is hilariously redundant tbh because only Wolf has enough HP to survive a regular sniper rifle shot in assault anyway. Pfffft.

      The rant has been moved to a new thread due to post length limitations in my OP here.
      Read the rant >HERE. DO NOT POST IN THAT THREAD. IT IS FOR READING PURPOSES ONLY. ALL DISCUSSION OF ASSAULT AND MY RANT SHOULD BE HELD HERE.

      Hey all!

      I want to start a Krystal support team so I thought I'd pitch the idea here.
      Me and a bunch of other people on Twitter have started a group in hopes to unify as many Krystal fans as possible, because I've realized that there are SO many Krystal supporters online but they are so scattered and quiet. I think it's important for us to be all commenting together about support for Krystal and 'liking' each other's comments on Youtube/Facebook (extremely important because it means Nintendo themselves WILL see it)

      I think on Nintendo's official Youtube and Facebook pages are the best places to do these "unified comments", if they continue to see the support for her (and Star Fox Assault, because it signifies not only Krystal's inclusion but also the actual potential for growth the SF series has) then they may take our support into consideration when making a new SF game!

      I wanted to see if anyone on here wanted to be involved with us actively commenting/liking Krystal related posts on YouTube.
      I can update this thread with links of videos we'll be targeting for this "unified support" It will really help with our cause and if you are a Krystal supporter then this is a really efficient way of showing that support/increasing her odds of returning to the series in general!

      Please let me know if any of you are interested!

      When you read that title, you may think to yourself: "Competitive Star Fox: Assault multiplayer? Never heard of it."
      Well, it is actually a real thing. Star Fox: Assault has aspects that make it great as a competitive game.
      I'm bringing attention to this now in particular because of the sudden ease of play, as well as because I genuinely want to see this competitive scene thrive and grow. While in the past, if you wanted to play in a tournament, you had to live close to others who wanted to play in such a tourney, now, with the adoption of Dolphin's Netplay feature by the Star Fox: Assault competitive community, you can play with people cities away with minimal lag. I won't get into any technical details here; I just want to make people aware that this is now something anyone with a semi-decent PC can do.
      This thread can also be used as a means for people on these forums to discuss aspects of the topic. If you decide that you'd like to get involved with the competitive community, or simply want to discuss the topic in more detail, then I highly recommend visiting the Star Fox: Assault community website:

      Also, to give a glimpse of what playing the game competitively online is like, here's the first game in the first official Lylat Systems Netplay tournament:
