Shock Troops are highly trained assault troops that specialize in destroying infantry at close-range. They are equipped with SMGs, grenades and light body armor.

TraitsEdit

Shock Troops possess light body armor, meaning they have an armor value of 2.25, as opposed to typical 1 armor that most infantry possess, allowing them to sustain more punishment. Merging in Conscripts with the squad preserves the Conscript's health and armor value of 1, making the squad overall more fragile.

They also are deal more damage on the move, so combined with their armor you should look for opportunities to advance and eliminate enemy troops, which shouldn't be hard considering these elite infantry's armor and abilities.

AbilitiesEdit

RG-42 Anti-Personnel Grenade - Shock troops throw a grenade at the target location, causing damage in a large area to infantry, regardless of cover. This is best used to take out bunched up infantry, infantry behind cover or weapons teams. Costs 30Icon Munitions Small.png 30.

RGD-1 Smoke Grenade - Shock troops throw a smoke grenade at the target location, creating a cloud of smoke lasting 30 seconds that blocks line of sight. This is most useful to screen the squad (or friendly squads) from attacks coming from a particular direction. This can allow them to maneuver into a more favorable position. Costs 15Icon Munitions Small.png 15. Since it does not share a cooldown with the Anti-Personnel grenade, the smoke grenade can be used to conceal the squad as it moves in the smoke. The squad can then toss a grenade out of the smoke without line of sight; best used on weapon teams.

Fire Superiority - Shock troops walk towards a target enemy infantry squad, firing long bursts with their PPSh-41 SMGs. This will suppress the target squad. Costs 25Icon Munitions Small.png 25. Available in the campaign.
