A Shock Trooper in Survival on Tatooine.

Shock Troopers are Imperial NPC's in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront that can be encountered in Survival or Skirmish.


In Missions mode, they are the heavy gunners.

They are one of the most dangerous enemies present in the single-player missions, having more health than regular NPC soldiers and a more powerful weapon. They will appear once the player has achieved 26 points and will continue to spawn from there on. They will also spawn on the player's side if friendly AI is enabled after the enemy side gains more than 25 points.
