I have a CompForce Trooper and everytime I call it out it is something different, human, zabrak or what ever. Also, it might have a pistol one time a rifle the next. I believe the HAM was 5000 and I cant remember the damage but I will find all the specifics I can and post them here. I request all of you who have other types of troops please post here what they do, look like and anything else of use. I would hate to see use making bad decisions on picking our troops. Thanks in advance. Oh, the CompForce Trooper also wears a variaty of different armor/clothing I have never seen. I can also say that they only fight with ranged weapons so far. Get thing to have when working faction missions. By the way, I am only a corporal and hope to make Sergeant and then get a little fire team together. I would like a melee pet to help me as I melee, take some of the heat off of me.
