Battle of Hoth in the 501st Journal.

501st Journal -- Hoth: "Our Finest Hour"[]

No one ever complained about the cold on Hoth. We never felt it. Even though we were blinded by blizzards, we could see the final end of the Rebellion in our blaster sights. Was it only a mirage? Perhaps. But on that day, on that planet, our blood ran hot with dreams of victory, melting the ice that stood in our way.


This the final mission of the Empire campaign and Battlefront 2. The level simulates the battle of Hoth. This is considered the hardest mission in the game due to the massive enemy count. The map is very huge, so playing as a Dark Trooper is recommended to get from objective to objective. This level is notable for letting you using an AT-AT.


From Imperial officer.

1.) "There is no tomorrow, men. Today we crush the rebellion once and for all. You know the orders. Destroy the shield generator in preparation of Lord Vader's arrival. Next, focus all efforts on preventing the final transport ship from lifting off. We'll begin by taking over their outlook command post. Move out!"

2.) "Nice work, men. Now let's capture their forward bunker."

3.) "All units ready to commence attack on the shield generator. The AT-AT will take point on the attack. Protect them at all cost."

4.) "The rebel shield generator has been reduced to rubble. Ready the ground troops for the assault on Echo Base."

5.) "Excellent. Now take out the security console in the command center to gain access to the back hangar. We must destroy the final transport before it can escape."

After spawning as Darth Vader: "Excellent work, Lieutenant. I'll inform Lord Vader."

6.) "The rebel shield has been deactivated. Moving on to capture the back hangar in preparation of our assault on the rebel transport ship."

7.) "Blast! We almost had that rebel scum. An orbital strike beacon has been laid in the hangar for you. Aquire the beacon and place it under the transport. Command will use the coordinates from the beacon to launch a massive attack from above. Failure is not an option."

8.) "Excellent. Now protect the beacon while we lock in on your current location."

ACCOMPLISHED: "Coordinates confirmed. Vacate the area immediately. Our attack on the transport will begin momentarily.

Ending Journal[]

As the Rebels fled, the 501st gathered around a burning bunker and let out a cheer that shook the stars. The Rebellion was done, the Death Star was being rebuilt, bigger than ever. Order had finally returned to the Galaxy, in no small part due to the efforts of the fighting men of the 501st.
