Riot soldier

From DoomWiki.org

The riot soldier is a monster introduced in The Ancient Gods, Part Two. It is a variant of the shield soldier that carries a chaingun, and can be identified by its red armor and golden shield.

Tactical analysis[edit]

The riot soldier's shield is indestructible, making it impervious to frontal damage. The easiest way to kill a riot soldier is to launch a frag grenade or fire a rocket behind it.

Lore[edit]

Like other soldiers, the riot soldiers are humans who have been claimed by darkness. They march under the banner of the Dark Lord, carrying blessed shields raided from Urdak.

Trivia[edit]

  • Although the riot soldiers' shields are described as coming from Urdak, they still have a UAC logo on them.
