“Look out, everybody, things are about to get awesome!”
Jet Troopersare enemies encountered in Borderlands 3 and are the aerial infantry support units of the Maliwan corporation. They are easily distinguished by orange uniforms and jetpacks attached to their backs.
Jet Troopers always wear shields and wield sniper rifles and will take flight as soon as they spot the enemy. Flight is their main strenght as their presence can go unnoticed in the thick of the battle. This comes at the price of relatively weak shields and a need to stop mid-air to take a good aim. After receiving sufficient dammage they are forced to land after which they are easy to dispatch.
- There exists a dark variant of the Jet Trooper that can be found serving General Traunt on Nekrotafeyo or on the Slaughterstar 3000. Aside from their name and color scheme, they are functionally the same as their basic counterparts.
- There also exists a Special Ops variant of the Jet Trooper found at the Maliwan Blacksite at Midnight's Cairn, where they serve as guardsmen for the weapons project Valhalla. Aside from the name and color scheme, the trooper retains their tactics.
- In Mayhem Mode and True Vault Hunter Mode they are renamed Jetpack Commando.
