In Killzone: Shadow Fall, the Helghast Army has evolved. A change in the military doctrine was forced by the destruction of Helghan and decimation of the Helghast population. The army needed a new breed of troops, as they could no longer afford to overpower their enemies with endless formations of lightly trained soldiers.
As detailed by Guerrilla Games, the new Helghast Army’s troops consist of:
- Assault Troopers – Helghast Assault Troopers form the backbone of the Helghan Army. Better trained and better equipped than his historical counterpart, the ‘average’ Trooper is now smarter and deadlier than ever.
- Commandos – The most aggressive and physically powerful Troopers are selected to become Commandos. They specialize in brute force and overwhelming firepower, equipped with shotguns in close quarters combat, or with miniguns and emplaced Nano Shields for battlefield support.
- Engineers – Helghast Engineers provide battlefield support, either in an offensive capacity (by constructing sentry turrets) or in a defensive capacity (by providing dynamic cover with strategically placed Nano Shields).
