"The First Order Rocket Trooper uses a jetpack to evade and get the drop on enemies."
— In-game Description

The First Order Rocket Trooper is the Aerial Reinforcement unit for the First Order in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II.


The First Order's Rocket Trooper is the evolution of the Galactic Empire's own Imperial Rocket Trooper. They thus bring into battle with them a Rocket Launcher. Their jetpack also allows for some flight with thrusters that propel it upwards as well as it forwards. The First Order's Rocket Troopers are equipped with automatic firing SE-44C blaster pistols with the Cell Mod.

Abilities Edit

  • Jetpack Boost: The Jetpack Boost's thrusters are used to boost the Aerial upwards. Well suited for traversing obstructions and evading danger.
  • Rocket Launcher: The Rocket Launcher fires an explosive projectile.
  • Jetpack Dash: With the Jetpack Dash the Aerial adjusts their thrusters to dash forward. Ideal in narrow spaces and to surprise enemies.

  • Like the Imperial Rocket Trooper, all First Order Rocket Troopers have an orange pauldron, which canonically indicates that they hold the rank of Commander. This could be a goof.
    • The orange pauldron was not actually added until the launch of the game; despite likely being canonically inaccurate, this was likely done to make Rocket Troopers easier to spot and identify on the field in-game, and/or perhaps be consistent with the Imperial Rocket Trooper's rank.
