Trophy: Shields are Down
Complete 'Destroy dark ship shield'. Bronze

Destroy dark ship shield is a mission in Jak 3. Samos Hagai had guessed the astro-viewer did more than just gaze at stars. When Jak inserted the time map into a slot on the machine, he was pulled into the Dark Maker ship's systems as a result.

Completion of this mission in the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation 4 versions of Jak 3 will unlock the bronze trophy Shields are Down.


The Dark Maker bot controls more or less identical to the Titan Suit, save for the extra addition of a shield. The shield, while blocking enemy attacks for a short while, also disables your movement, so it might be better to just try and dodge trooper attacks while taking them out right away. Kill the first few troopers in the starting room, then go through the door that opens, as a result.

On the bridge here, you have to punch the floating bomb and get it to hit the pulsing, barrier-like obstacle blocking the path to the other side. With that out of the way, break through the door behind it and enter the laser-filled tunnel. Progress slowly (two lasers at a time) as the lasers will move suddenly and quickly. Punch through another wall and kill the troopers in the next room. Do the same with the bombs and the pulsing thing here and then go through the new gap you just made.

Some more enemies around here as you have to send more bombs flying against more of the pulsing obstacle. When they are gone, some platforms appear which you have to use to get to the other side. After two of these, you get to a larger area where you have to use a cube to jump on top of a higher platform where you can destroy another pulsing obstacle with the bomb up here. Do the same up ahead (take the cube with you) and head through the newly opened door.

Some last few troopers as you get to the last pulsing obstacle which is in control of the ship's shields; it repeatedly sends out electric waves, which you need to jump over. Otherwise, just concentrate on timing your punches against the bombs, as you need to hit each of the three spheres circling the big thing twice. After one hit, they move a lot faster as well. Once that has been done, the big pulsing obstacle explodes and you complete the mission.
