Soldier - Weakness & Tips

Weakness: Combat Shotgun Blast

A direct blast from the Combat Shotgun will stagger the soldier, leaving it open to Glory Kills. Change to your shotgun and seek Soldiers out when you are in need of health pickups during a tense battle.

Can Be Killed With Most Weapons

Can Be Killed With Most Weapons

As a Fodder Demon, the Soldier is very fragile and can easily be killed. They are low priority targets so treat them as mobile resource pickups during battle.

Variant: Shield Soldier

Shield Soldier

The Shield soldier carries an energy shield to block attacks and to limit the player's movements. You can also use the Chainsaw against this demon to bypass its shield.

Use Plasma Rifle To Destroy The Shield

You can use a Plasma Rifle to hit the shield and make it explode, dealing damage to the Soldier and its surrounding demons. Use this whenever possible to save ammo and to thin out enemy numbers.

Blood Punch The Shield

A Blood Punch is enough to down the Shield of a Soldier. Use it when you're trying to charge through groups of Shield Soldiers blocking your way.

Hit The Right Arm Or From Behind

Hit the right arm

If you don't have Plasma ammo, you can still use weapons such as the Combat Shotgun's Sticky Bomb to hit the Soldier's exposed arm. You can also use the Rocket Launcher's Remote Detonate to have the rockets explode behind it.

Soldier - Attack Patterns & Features

Blaster Attack

Blaster Attack

The Soldier will fire bursts at the player. Easy to dodge and deals minuscule damage alone. Might be troublesome if groups of Soldiers fire together. Shield Soldiers deal heavier damage with their shotgun.

Charged Blaster Attack

Charged Blaster Attack

The Soldier will charge its rifle to deal a larger and more damaging attack. As it takes a few seconds to charge up its attack, you can kill it before it fires. You can also easily dodge this attack with a dash.

Melee Attack

Melee Attack

The Soldier will use its fists or Shield to smack the player. Deals little damage but can be a bit annoying as Soldiers can body block you and leave you open for heavier demons to attack.
