“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Assault Troopers are enemies encountered in Borderlands 3. They are the standard infantry of the Maliwan corporation, deployed as frontline soldiers wherever their leadership sees fit.
Assault Troopers possess no special abilities, unlike their fellow Maliwan soldiers. They wield SMGs and wear shields, and prefer to utilize cover, making them more durable than untrained bandits. Unless in numbers, or if supporting heavier units, they are fairly easy to deal with. Shock weapons are particularly effective when dealing with them, as they will neutralize the Troopers' shields very quickly. Once their shields have been depleted, incendiary weapons are highly effective against them.
- A dark variant of the Assualt Trooper can be found on Nekrotafeyo and Slaughterstar 3000 under General Traunt's command and have different colors on the uniform.
