OverviewEdit

The Riot Trooper is a Soldier unit and the player's first unit with Stat-Armor.  The Stat-HP and Stat-Armor are the same, both at 90 at Rank 6. It also holds the distinction of being one of few low level Soldier units with armor. This makes it far more resilient to crushing and projectile attacks, and a much more potent shield compared to similar tiered units.

The Riot Troopers have a Range of 2 with its ranged attack. This is tempered by the fact that the Riot Trooper deals a scant 5-6 (x3) projectile damage, which does not increase by much at higher ranks. An additional issue for the use of Riot Troopers on the offense is the fact that they frequently need to reload.

However, they will be a valuable "wall" unit early in the game until more powerful enemies are encountered. By the time Riot Troopers promote to a considerable rank with more HP and armor, tanks will better serve as "wall" units for PvE encounters. In PvP this is tempered by their low Unit Value.

At Rank 3, the Riot Trooper can research the Shield Bash attack, which is a guaranteed stun against Soldiers and Critters. An additional Ability Slot also opens up at this time so that the Riot Trooper can utilize both attacks.

Keep in mind that the Riot Trooper is one of two units, the other being the Armadillo, whose Stat-Armor is completely ignored while under the effects of Stun StatusEffect-stun also called "active type" armor. This means that damage the Riot Trooper sustains while stunned ignores Armor Stat-Armor completely and is applied directly to HP Stat-HP.

  • Sgt. Ramsey once stated that that calling a Riot Trooper a "Bullet Sponge" is hurtful.
  • When viewed in the Barracks, the Riot Trooper has the "Fortress" class icon in the top left corner (Class fortress) instead of the more logical "Light Infantry"/"Heavy Infantry" icons (Class infantry-light/Class infantry-heavy).
