Hiring other bounty hunters to do a job you accepted isn't cowardly,it's actually pretty smart.Especially if you need to get another job done at the same time.

Jango does not always do other jobs, though. Even if it is not cowadly, it is still dishonorful.

I don't think it's a bad idea to have bright armor(unless you're in a situation needing stealth) I mean,anyone that is trying to get away from him by hiding would probobly panic at the sight of the armor and run,making the hunt considerably easier.

He keps his armor shiney even when he needs stealth.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

I dont completly dislike Jango like Draco does, but i do believe what he is saying about the darts and killing Zam first. If he shot one of the Jedi instead of Zam and then fought any one of them one on one he would have beat them. On Kamino he nearly killed Obi Wan (but naturally he got lucky...) so he could probably handle Anikan as well. And for those of you who think that they would sense the dart coming, they didnt sense it when it killed Zam, so he could definitly kill one off and take down the other.

Blaster shots definitly don't explode. Little discharge at most.

canonically, no jango=no boba.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

reality: no Baba equals no Jango.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

Don't look at me I don't disprespect or hate Jango even if his tatics are less than ingenious. So what if George Lucas created Jango to give origin to Boba, I just like the story.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

Actually I agree with that Draco no Boba=no Jango but at the same time in the story no Jango=no Boba (I hate this timeline s*** it gives me a headache)

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

only cause Jango is no match 4 Boba

DEATH TO THE JEDI......SITH RULE

I agree. I also think that if Boba had not have been so popular then Jango would not have existed.

yeah and he would've been in a lot more trouble if he killed 2 jedi knights. then it wouldn't just be Obi-Wan investigating. the whole order would want to know what happened. I don't think Tyranus would be pleased with the jedi nosing around just because Jango didn't want to kill a worthless bounty hunter instead of 2 jedi.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

If he shot them (or Zam) with a blaster, there would have been no evidence that would point to Jango.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

This is a little late, but I agree with Volk-Ordo. If Jango had shot at the Jedi, I don't think he'd have killed both. The first one hit might have fallen, then Zam would've yelled out "Oh Crap! Jango!", the surviving Jedi would have assumed a battle stance with his 'saber at the ready, Jango would have flown off(because he knows fighting a Jedi is such close quarters as an alley puts him at a disadvantage,not because he's a coward), the remaining Jedi would have taken Zam to be interrogated more thoroughly and then she would have revealed Jango to the Jedi.

If I was totally sane, I wouldn't be as good at my job.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

He could use a wrist-rocket. If that didn't kill both of them, it would atleast give Jango the chance to shoot the survivor.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

If a wrist rocket could've killed both Jedi, wouldn't it have killed Zam,too? Given her proximity to both of them? And I think the Jedi could have avoided the blast from a rocket. It would have been louder and slower than a dart or blaster bolt.

If I was totally sane, I wouldn't be as good at my job.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

Zam would die, but he would not be tracked. While fighting Jango on Kamino, Obi-wan just dodged Jango's missile. That is heavier, and therefor likely slightly slower. Because he was in mid-battle, Obi-wan was completely alert. In the ally, the smaller amount of alertness, the likely lighter rocket, and the downward angle of the rocket (which may have subtracted a second or so) would probably made them susceptible.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

He was a lot closer to Obi-Wan when he shot that rocket. Shooting one from a rooftop some distance away would be different. Somewhere during the rocket's travel it would have made an audible noise that would have alerted one of the Jedi. And I think Jango's wrist rockets are dumb-fire. There's a good chance that they would have limited accuracy over long ranges and most likely would have missed his targets. He'd have only succeeded in creating an explosion that would have alerted both Jedi and prevented him from making a successful second attack.

The rocket he shot at Obi-Wan was much larger, and presumably, stronger than a wrist rocket would have been. The jetpack mounted rocket didn't do much damage even though Obi-Wan barely dodged it. I can't see a wrist mounted rocket,even if it hit it's mark, killing both Jedi.

If I was totally sane, I wouldn't be as good at my job.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

Two wrist rockets were fired with accuracy and power that is extreme overkill. Because the Jedi were in a crowded area, it would be unlikely that they would here the rocket.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

Are you talking about the rockets he fired at those two anarchists on Kuat? Because he was a lot closer to them than he would have been to Anakin and Obi-Wan. Also, I think there's some debate over how accurately the artist for that story portrayed the strength of his rockets.

Since they were in a crowded area, I'm sure someone in the alley or nearby would have said something along the lines of," Dude, what's that rocket thingy in the air?". Then one of the Jedi, probably Kenobi, would have looked up and deflected it right before it exploded.

If I was totally sane, I wouldn't be as good at my job.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

Even if the rocket didn't kill both of them, it would disorientate the other, leaving him open to attack.

Even if someone did notice, they might be drugged up, not care, or say something about in a language not known to Kenobi.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

I  don't think his wrist rockets are powerful enough or accurate enough to kill either of them. If a rocket fired close-range from his jetpack didn't hurt Kenobi, even though it exploded almost right in his face, the chance that a smaller rocket would kill either is low ( even if  it had picked up more momentum from traveling a further distance). Zam might have gotten killed if the rocket exploded close enough to them, but only because she was already injured.

If I was totally sane, I wouldn't be as good at my job.

Yea thats what i was gonna respond to Gustavo with. No one alive would have seen Jango so there would be nothing linking him with anything.

Rockets would have been unnecessary in that situation. He should've used his Flamethrower because in that enclosed area of the alley it would have been a devistating, and unblockable, attack.

He was too far away to use his flamethrower.

Re: What is with all the Jango hate and disrespect?

If he was im sure he could clear the distance easily, or better yet they would come to him, assuming he didn't already kill one with a dart instead of Zam.

That would still take care of Zam without evidence.
