Due to the Shock Trooper's low range, it is not recommended to use them in attacks. However they are an excellent addition to any base defense if placed in Bunkers.
Level 10+ Shock Troopers placed in any Bunkerwill outrange all Levels of the Hellfire.
2 Level 10+ Shock Troopers are required to continually render most Vehicles immobile. For Levels 9 and below this usually requires 3 Shock Troopers.
Its useless if you put 2 shock troopers on your bunker because the shock trooper targets one unit at a time they would not split to attack different units so the best way is to put only one shock trooper.
This unit can be found on Shockwave and shock and awe special ops.
