STAR Troopers are the toughest and must dangerous of Goldfire's guards. They wear thick bulletproof vests which can turn deadly shots into minor wounds. Often when shot, they will simply fall unconscious because of their protection. An unconcious STAR Trooper could be mistaken for a deceased one. STAR Troopers soon regain consciousness, and the unaware player can be surprise-attacked. The player should always be sure that a STAR Trooper is really dead by being sure there is blood. Weaker weapons are generally ineffective at penetrating STAR Troopers' bullet proof vests. If you kill another enemy and its corpse falls on an unconscious STAR it will remain down.
