The riot soldier's shield is indestructible, making it impervious to frontal damage; the chainsaw, which is capable of killing regular shield soldiers, cannot target riot soldiers while their shields are raised. The easiest way to kill a riot soldier is to launch a frag grenade or fire a rocket behind it; the rocket launcher's Remote Detonate mod is ideally suited for this task.
A faltered riot soldier can be hit with gunfire, but it will still be carrying the shield in its left hand so attacks from the right are more likely to connect.
- With its red armor and chaingun, the riot soldier is similar in appearance to Doom II's chaingunner.
- Although the riot soldiers' shields are described as coming from Urdak, they still have a UAC logo on them.
