The Trooper is the heavy soldier of the Republic. As a member of the Republic Special Forces, they will either be seen in very small squads or, if they are especially daring, all by themselves, wrecking mayhem on the Sith Empire. Between very heavy armor that still allows great mobility and powerful blaster rifles, going against a Republic trooper is not an easy feat. It requires the ability to get past the consistent barrage of laser fire, the grenades, as well as the overall strong abilities that come with being known as the best soldiers in the entire Republic.

Unlike other classes that might hide and slowly move up to attack, the Republic Trooper isn’t afraid of a little dirt. He runs head on into battle, his blaster rifle killing as he goes, clearing a path for those to follow. Because of his heavy armor, he can take damage and not actually feel it. If, while on the battlefield, you see a lone soldier running towards the Sith base, chances are, it is a Republic special forces trooper who is going to conquer that area.

Field Reconnaissance

Deployed to the hairiest battlefields in the galaxy, Republic Troopers generally travel in small, specialized squads. It is not uncommon, however, to see a Trooper engaging enemies on his or her own. Whether operating solo or in groups, members of the Republic Special Forces have become intimidating opponents to their enemies.

Weapons & Armor

The Republic’s experiments with a new generation of heavy blaster rifles have proven successful, sparking a galaxy-wide trend towards larger, more powerful and more versatile armaments. It takes a great deal of strength and training, however, to wield these war machines, so they’re rarely used outside the military. Republic engineers have also worked overtime fashioning new defensive gear for the Republic’s most elite soldiers, armor suits that provide maximum protection and flexibility in multiple environments.

Combat Tactics

Whether fighting as part of a small strike squad or at the forefront of a larger force, the Trooper can unleash unrivaled firepower against his enemies. A Trooper’s rifle is his best friend, and the military is constantly challenged to design faster, more powerful and more reliable blaster rifles every year. Wielding such rifles and wearing protective battle armor designed by the Republic’s top engineers, the Trooper will not hesitate to step right into the crossfire. Whether storming a base or a battlefield, the Trooper charges into the fight, blaster-rifle blazing, to clear a path for freedom and justice.
