Will we be an getting Imperial Shock Trooper skin along with the Coruscant Guard skins?

Prev1
Will we be getting it? They are the same color job but just on a different armor set.

Can be for Assault

Can also be for heavy

There is also a mod for it

It is something that can be ported or easily made, there really isn't a reason to not include it.

  • I’d prefer the shock trooper as a Deathtrooper skin variant... but I’d be fine with the trooper versions too.

  • Would like to see it as either a skin for Heavy along with pauldron variations for all classes added a the same time, or as a Deathtrooper alt. Presuming they changed the height of the Shocktrooper Enforcer. But that detail may unfortunately be pushing it for these guys.

    @Rugbymaster1 Agree. Not adding Endor Luke along with the other two Endor skins is just hairpullingly daft.

    Think the Imperial ones need to be handled with care. Rainbow clones I can deal with, rainbow stormtroopers would pee me off.

    I honestly like the uniformity of the Empire right now. Everyone is a Stormtrooper or Scout Trooper or Imperial Officer, unlike the last game where it was a mixed bag of troopers.

    I'd be OK with the Shock Trooper, though, as a kind of special unit skin. All I want to see for the Empire customization is male and female options for all classes, different colored pauldrons, and different Officer uniform variants and ranks.

    Right. Multiple clone legions often worked together during battles, so I can accept that.

    Yep, (except the rainbow clones, I find them hard to take :)) this is the main reason I’d prefer it as a Deathtrooper variant.

    Rainbow clones hurt my eyes. Battles would look so much cleaner if the legions were map specific.

    I so want the Shock trooper to come to battlefront ii, along with Shore trooper and Shadow trooper.
    The Death Trooper IS the Shadow Trooper, but the canon version.

    The Shore Trooper is an environmental - gear skin, like the Snowtrooper. Snowtroopers are only for Hoth, Shoretroopers are only for Scarif (or other places with beaches and shores).

    I can't stand the rainbow troopers. Ugh. Takes everything good out of the legions, and I'd been hoping to see legions since the game's beta.

    Why are rainbow clones okay, but rainbow Imperials aren't?

    I'm kind of half-and-half about this, I'm not quite sure where I land. I very much agree with you that the Empire should be mostly uniform, with Stormtroopers and officers and Scouts and maybe a few slight variations on Stormtroopers. on the other hand, there are a lot of good Canon Imperial options that I really think should be included.

    I feel like the best compromise is to go back to the last games system where you had to achieve a certain level in order to be able to buy a certain skins. Add that to increasingly high prices for skins that should be more rare, and it should make it so you don't see too many of most of the skins in the game.

    But they almost never worked together in the same battles, they were on the same planet but miles apart. And even in the VERY rare occasions where they did fight side-by-side, it was NEVER more than two legions total. Rainbow clone legions is still a visual ugh.
  • @JackTHorn because I’m not as into the clone wars era as I am the OT. So more for selfish reasons if I’m being honest.

    Agree. Shocktrooper for just the Heavy or DT I think is fine. But for the most part Shoretroopers on Scarif maps only and some pauldron customization is as far as they should go.

    I agree.

    Pauldron’s for sure and maybe a Stormtrooper Captain skin for Officer, along with Veers armour with helmet visor down would be cool, Uniforms with and without hats in grey, black and white with different rank badges would be cool.

    I keep changing this for whatever reason but ehh...It can stay like this I suppose.
  • I think they’ll focus on one era at a time. Or maybe they’ll finish the Clone Wars era and then kind of be all over the place (in a good way). The Star Wars Universe is so huge! Doing it by eras as of right now I think is to help them to stay on track and organized. I can’t ever complain about the CW era because it’s the best one so far in my opinion, but I hope they’re general after this era. Diversity is good. The game is getting a lot better though! Thank you so much for listening developers!

    Not a bad suggestion, fits the role of the shock trooper with the death trooper abilities and makes it more intimidating having just a few shock troopers.

    Upon some digging it turns out they're still canon, EA's inclusion of them in SWBF15 re-cemented their status. They may have different lore but either way they are still recognized as a stormtrooper variant

    I think they also came out and specifically said that they were phased out of canon again for the Death Trooper. I think they said that in response to why they aren't in this game but were in last game.

  • Yeah mate!
    I suggested that few weeks after the Coruscant Guards appeared on the Roadmap.
    But I suggested the Shock Trooper skin for heavy and Shoretrooper skin for Assault.
    They exist in SWBF 2015.
    I don't have much know-how in graphic programming, but I guess it may not be that hard to export it to SWBF2

    Shoretroopers will hopefully stay on and be limited to Scarif this time around.

    Why limited to Scarif?
  • If Shoretroopers are kept to only scarif then they should include the Hovertank pilot, AT-ACT pilot and Shoretrooper captain so every class has a unique skin

    Because like Snowtroopers, their armour and training is specific to their environment. Therefore they only belong on tropical planets and the only such planet we’ve seen represented in the OT for that environment is Scarif.

    I think you could argue that the Death Trooper is kind of a Shadow Trooper / Storm Commando hybrid. Which makes me think it’s a canon replacement for both.

    Yes. totally agree. So many options like pauldron colors, black officer uniforms or Navy Troopers. hope they will add more customization options soon.

    They are still canon thanks to Konami. Konami got to make a star wars card game and everything that has a card is considered canon they included Shadow troopers and brought back Clone Shadow troopers. But the clone version only has a description on the card and not a card themselves.

    http://starwars-force-collection.wikia.com/wiki/Complete_List_of_Cards

    latest?cb=20180323041759

    Card description. Shadow Troopers are highly trained, elite Soldiers serving the Empire. Based off of their Clone Shadow Trooper predecessors, these elite troops wear experimental stealth armor which is entirely black in color. This armor, coupled with portable cloaking tech makes them highly suited for missions where cunning, rather than brute force is required

    The Konami game was before the Disney buyout, right? So it's canon status back then is irrelevant to its canon status now.

    I agree on every one but the Shoretrooper Captain, for the same reason as mention before. Environmental gear.

    Here's how it should be:
    • The basic Stormtrooper (Assault class)
    • ...on Scarif, stays the same
    • The Stormtrooper Corporal (Assault class, black pauldron)
    • ...on Scarif, becomes the Shoretrooper
    • The Heavy Stormtrooper (Heavy class)
    • ...on Scarif, stays the same
    • The Stormtrooper Sergeant (Assault class, white pauldron)
    • ...on Scarif, becomes the Shoretrooper Squad Leader
    • The Stormtrooper Captain (Assault class, orange pauldron)
    • ...on Scarif, becomes the Shoretrooper Captain
  • Bandai just released a shadow trooper model if that has any bearing lol
  • Shadow Trooper would be nice for specialist.

    Disney bought star wars in 2012. The Konami game was made in 2013 and ran till 2018. Since it was made after the buyout it would be canon. Unless said otherwise. I can't find anything saying its content is not canon,

  • great idea. While I'd like to avoid the goofiness of late BF2015 with Shoretroopers on Hoth, etc. think these two could appear on any map with standard armor (as opposed to environmental variants e.g. snowtroopers)
