How to shoot down a Zeppelin

… in Indiana Jones Staff of Kings Co Op mode. Which we figured out and is so hard to do I thought I’d share it.

If you don’t know what this is in reference to, then you don’t need to know the answer. If you do know what this is in reference to than you are desperate to know the answer.

First, I hope you know that if your plane is on fire, all you need to do is fly through any available waterfall to put it out. Earlier in the game you may have figured out that if you blow up a water tower, you can fly through the resulting spray and put the fire out as well. Northwest Airlines is now training their flight crew in this practice, as I understand it. But I digress.

OK, so to blow up the Zeppelin …. those flat tray thingies that are being lifted into the Zeppelin are loaded with highly explosive fuel tanks. Wait until the fuel tanks are up near the Zeppelin, then shoot them to cause an explosion that damages the Zeppelin. Do this five to eight times (fewer if the explosions are close, more if the explosion is not close) and you’ll have a blow’d up blimp.

Hint: Use “B” on the Wii to slow your plane way down so you have lots of time to shoot.

Now, if you found this walkthrough/hint/cheat while searching on the Internet, and you don’t know what a Science Blog is, have a look around, you can learn stuff and we have all sorts of interesting discussions here!

We even have cool adventure stories!

    A Zeppelin is *NOT* a Blimp! 😛 A Zepellin has an outer shell, an inner supporting framework, and multiple inner cells which contain the flotation gas (hydrogen or helium – unfortunately for the Hindenberg they had to make do with hydrogen) while a blimp has a single skin and no rigid frame – it’s pretty much just a balloon with a carriage and fans.

    Years ago I was duped my Microsoft’s flight simulator and their ads “As Real as it Gets”. After playing for about 2 minutes I’m screaming “this is *nothing* like flying!”. So I took off from an airstrip somewhere in Illinois and thought I’d buzz the Wrigley Stadium. Then I noticed the Microsoft blimp by the John Hancock tower and I go “let’s see how real this is” and flew into the balloon. Damn, Goodyear sure make that balloon out of tough stuff – my poor little Cessna 182 crashed and burned without a single scratch on the blimp.

    I think “blimp” was being used here in a derogatory manner.
