"LET'S GO! BANANAS!"
― A rare Pre-Rehaul Trooper voice line
The Trooper is a second class in-game. He is an Offense who specializes in crowd handling.The Trooper runs at 80% speed, and has 200 HP.
Based off Team Fortress 2's soldier, this patriotic American tones down his other's craziness for a more sane individual. A versatile, well-balanced class, the Trooper comes equipped with a versatile arrangement of weaponry; most notably, his Rocket Launcher, capable of performing acts of explosive recklessness called Rocket Jumping.
The Trooper was originally called Rocketman in Typical Colors 1.
Trooper's old outfit on the TGC team suggested that he was British, or served in the British Military once.
The Trooper is voiced by FWEEEEEEE, who is known to have made some maps for the game.
In Arsenal, a game that is also made by ROLVe, also has a Trooper skin, but it’s much different.
Later on, they added an actual Trooper skin, that was sporting The Veteran cosmetic.
The Trooper is a frontline class, treat him as such.
He is one of the best classes for capturing objectives thanks to his high damage output and high health pool, along with an assortment of combat options.
Mastering the "art" of rocket jumping will help resolve the issue that Trooper's slow natural movement speed arises.
Aim at the enemy's feet and/or the ground so you won't miss a lot, this also makes your rockets unavoidable, unless you have the Direct Hit, of course.
If your health is low, do not try to rocket jump unless you have the Gunboats on, or the Parabomber and Rocket Jumper equipped together, as it will slow down your fall and keep you alive.
While in the air from a blast jump, such as a rocket jump do not try to turn too quickly as you may end up flying in the opposite direction and into the enemy team!
As a Trooper, Arsonist is your biggest counter. He can reflect your rockets right back at you and get rewarded with Mini-crits. It is best to pack a shotgun if there is a good arsonist in the enemy team.
