BattleEdit

Shock Trooper in Eusciello in FFXV

The player faces shock troopers in Chapter 11 when protecting the train. They appear both on the ground level where the train stopped, and onboard the magitek engines when the player is warping between them to down them. When they are on the ground level, the shock troopers stagger slowly toward the player and attacking them makes them blow up. Aboard the magitek engines the troopers are strapped down to the sides of the ships and don't do anything, but attacking them makes them detonate. The shock troopers' detonation will destroy the magitek engines, as is the aim.

EtymologyEdit

Shock troops are formations created to lead an attack. "Shock troop" is a calque, a loose translation of the German word Stoßtrupp. Military units which contain assault troops are typically organized for mobility with the intention that they will penetrate through enemy defences and attack into the enemy's vulnerable rear areas.
