    I know there's a few threads already, but the info is spread out so sporadically, I just wanted to say that it's May 2017, and I just got the Sith Master achv, using cheats.

    On Xbox One.

    I did 2 legit playthroughs already, so don't bother whining to me.

    * Start a new game on Sith Master.
    * Play and BEAT the first level (as Darth Vader).
    * Start playing the first real level as Starkiller.

    In the hallways with the droids, before facing any enemies, enter your cheat codes:
    These are the cheats I used:

    KATARN All Force Powers Unlocked and Maxed
    ADEGAN All saber throw ranks unlocked
    JOCASTA All Talents Unlocked
    LIGHTSABER Amplified Damage
    RAGNOS Combo Unlock
    MOLDYCROW Unlocks All Force Combos

    (DO NOT USE: EXARKUN Maximum Force Push. Note: disables saves and may block some unlockables)
    * Now you need to get to a checkpoint, so I played until I got RIGHT PAST the first room with the hanging Tie Fighters on the ceiling and you have to use force power to open the door (2 locks). Then the game saves.

    * Go a little further and let yourself die (in the "communications" looking room with red omnicron in the center).

    * When you respawn, manually SAVE the game.

    * Exit to XB1 dash, force quit the game. (I've also read you can just go to main menu, but THIS is what I did and it worked).

    * Start the game, DON'T click "CONTINUE GAME" - instead click "LOAD GAME" - and manually load your Sith Master game.

    You will now have all the cheats still enabled, and you can still get achvs.
    I ran through the entire game, speedrun style, on Sith Master, in 1 sitting. It took over an hour (maybe less than 2), because even fully leveled up, bosses just have so much health on Sith difficulty, it's time consuming killing them.

    (I read that the LIGHTSABER cheat does not save if you exit the game and come back - but I did in 1 sitting so I cannot confirm)

    But MOST of the game, you can just RUN RIGHT PAST. You do not need to kill 95% of all enemies! Every so often I would use FORCE REPULSE to kill large groups to refill my health, that's it. I really only killed bosses.


    6/21 EDIT: ANOTHER NOTE: Even after you beat the game, if you want to mop up other achvs, you can level hop and the cheats remain active.

    The SCHWARTZ 00I beat the game on Sith back when it first launched, but I'm upvoting just because it's a brilliant workaround and I definitely would have used it if I was just starting it up today.

    AradorDoes this work on 360?
    Posted by Arador on 07 Oct 18 at 08:23
    GRAND NOBLE@Arador, Yes. This method has been around since 360. Luckily it also works on the XB1 as well.

    ジャン ベリオスThe hardest part about this is beating that droid 😪

    GroudonGoDid everything in perfect order as specified twice, when I load my game I’m in the hallway with the droids and I have no cheats active.

    GroudonGoFigured it out: you have to put in a costume unlock cheat as your last cheat and it will work.

    DKN117DOES NOT WORK. Like GroudonGo above, I did everything exactly as specified, but it brought me back to the level start with no cheats. UNLIKE GroudonGo, adding a costume unlock code at the end of the code inputting step DID NOT fix the issue.

    My only way to get the Sith Lord/Master achievements is to try to GIT GUD and do it the old-fashioned way. And if I can't, then, I'm just not a good enough gamer to 100% this game's achievements...

    GRAND NOBLE@DKN117, people above have said it doesn't work or was patched out, and later they come back and say they were doing it wrong. Or something else says it worked, and they did it at a later date.

    This game is really really old. They aren't updating it. It's worth starting over, following exactly and trying again. Try reading the comments as well as some people have suggestions for slightly alternate steps that worked for them.
