Strategies

The Sky Trooper's primary weapon is similar to the Foot Soldiers, but it exchanges ammo capacity for a extreme rate of fire. As standard for most Foot Soldier Variants, both high vantage points and proper aim are important things to master with the Sky Trooper. The Sky Trooper can deal damage faster than the Foot Soldier, but actual vanquishes might take longer if your opponent is very mobile. Use the Zombie Stink Cloud to force opponents into places where you can easily shoot them.

Balancing changes

  • Start/end damage was increased from 6.5/4.5 to 7/5.

Trivia

  • The name of his primary weapon is a reference to the film Top Gun and its album song Danger Zone.
    • His in-game description also references this.
  • He has dead flies splattered on its helmet.
  • He is the only Foot Soldier variant that has the tip of the ZPG pop up when the reload time has finished.
  • There are markings and brains on the sides of his helmet.
  • The rocket launcher has stickers of an unknown air force and the United States Air Force.
  • In Garden Warfare 1, the head of the rocket is visible inside the ZPG when it is ready to be used. After firing the ZPG it disappears, reappearing once the ability is charged. This visual is not in Sky Trooper's Garden Warfare 2 design.
  • Unlike the normal Foot Soldier, the pellets he fires out of his weapon glows.
  • In a Garden Warfare 2 quest, he is shown to be a member of the Zomboss Elite Air Squad, however the only reason he joined was because he thought the word 'air' sounded dangerous, even though he apparently has no idea what air is.
  • In Garden Warfare 2, he gains windshield wipers on his visor.
  • He appears in the Garden Ops wave "Sky Guys".
