The Trooper is the basic infantry unit, and will be a fixture in any army for a while. They are unlocked at level 2 and are the first unit you can train.
Cheap, and somewhat affordable to toss as roadblocks to protect stronger units with longer ranges, the Trooper is best used as a meat shield. Due to their low train and repair cost, Troopers are the ideal unit for raiding other players and are often used as a shield to protect other units. The mini tank is a smaller, more nimble version of the classic armored vehicle. This means that it does significant shell damage yet packs a heavy punch against almost all unit types.
Troopers compose the bulk of the Imperial Army’s front-line forces. Operating under the motto of “First in, Rarely Return”, what these fresh recruits lack in experience and survivability, they make up for with a complete lack of independent thinking, and near-fanatical devotion to the Emperor. Their ability to stop bullets before they hit more important units is also a plus.
Despite the Empire’s recent advancements in weaponry, Troopers are issued the venerable M-11 Battle Rifle. Although critics point to its low rate of fire, Troopers love the M-11 because of its rugged reliability, and because its semi-automatic fire is more accurate at long range than rifles with burst and automatic modes.
