Jump Troopers, and their Rebel counterpart are ranked as the second most dangerous enemies in the Missions modes, behind Shadow Troopers as they can cloak and appear out of thin air to ambush the player. Their appearance is that of the basic Stormtrooper armor with a Jetpack mounted on their backs.
During Combat, Jump Troopers (fortunately) cannot use the Jetpack and Personal Shield at the same time, when on foot, they use the shield to protect against enemy fire, and when proceeding to attack the player, they use the Jetpack to attack from above.
The Heavy Blaster they carry is extremely powerful in harder difficulties, allowing them to deal a hefty amount of damage to the player if not dealt with quickly.
When in the air, the jump troopers can stay airborne for an unlimited amount of time (unlike the Jump Pack which only permits short bursts) and they will not stop unless they are killed of they lose sight of their target.
