The Shock Trooper is an enemy in Final Fantasy Type-0 first fought in the second chapter. Shock Trooper closes in to attack and his shield protects against frontal attacks. Cadets should attack from behind to deal damage.
Enemy Compendium Edit
The Prototype-42 Sentinel Shields these troopers employ were invented not long after the onset of war. Capable of deflecting the dominion's spells and just as durable as a magitek armor's frontal shields, the P-42 Sentinels were mass produced and distributed before they received an official military sanction--hence, "prototype." Shock troopers are unable to wield firearms single-handedly and instead fight using the Type-42 Thunderhatchet, moving in to strike at close range.
Other appearances Edit
Shock Trooper appears in Final Fantasy Trading Card Game with an Earth-elemental card.
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.
