The Missile Trooper is a type of Galactic Federation Trooper. These Troopers are equipped with a Missile Launcher in place of the standard sidearm, which is capable of firing powerful explosives. The only Missile Trooper encountered in-game was notably taller than the average trooper; whether this is a trait of all Missile Troopers or just this individual remains unknown.
One Missile Trooper was known to have been part of GFMC Task Force Herakles’s Squad Bravo during its final mission on planet Aether. This trooper was eventually killed along with the the rest of Squad Bravo, and their corpse somehow ended up in Hive Chamber A after Samus Aran’s first investigation of the chamber. When she later returned, the Missile Trooper’s corpse was possessed by an Ing, forcing Aran to confront the reanimated Dark Missile Trooper.
- Even before reanimating, the aforementioned Missile Trooper corpse already has the purplish coloration characteristic of Ing possession.
