- A Defenders of Man trooper(src)

The trooper is a class of terran light infantry.


Troopers bear similarity to marines, but are bereft of CMC armor and utilize CK-27 carbine rifles.[1]

Troopers (or similar soldiers) were utilized by Moebius Corps during the End War.[2] They were likewise used extensively by the Defenders of Man.[1]

Game UnitEdit

Nova Covert OpsEdit

The trooper appears in various missions in the Nova Covert Ops campaign. In terms of stats they are identical to the marine, with the same damage and range, same HP, and same movement speed. However, they cannot use stimpacks (although they do have the upgrade for it) and lack the marine's combat shield upgrade.

Co-op MissionsEdit

A variant of the trooper, called the Dominion trooper, is available to Arcturus Mengsk in Co-op Missions. These can be upgraded to use various powerful weapons.
