Weaknesses


Armored Shield Troopers are Shield Pirate Troopers that are equipped with a lightweight armorsuit.[1] The Space Pirate Organization commissioned many new varieties of Pirate Troopers prior to the events of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, as seen with energy shields and armor being equipped onto infantry. Pulling off the shield with the Grapple Lasso will leave the trooper open for attacks.[1] The shield's only weaknesses are Phazon-based attacks.[1] Strangely, when the Trooper enters Hypermode itself, its own attacks cause no damage to the shield. Once it is removed, the armor may be broken down with Missiles or Hypermode attacks.[1] The Grapple Voltage or Hyper Grapple may be used to drain the Pirate's energy as well.

In addition to their armor, they wear a portable battle shield. Removing the shield leaves them open to all attacks. The shield is also vulnerable to Phazon-based attacks." — Logbook "Armored Shield Trooper" (Metroid Prime 3: Corruption)
