[Top 5] SWTOR Best Armor for Trooper

SWTOR Best Armor for Trooper
For the Republic!

A Trooper is only as good as their armor allows them to be, so picking the right fit is important! Star Wars: The Old Republic offers many variants on traditional trooper gear, while also sprinkling in some different options for those with a more discerning taste. Below are the top five best looking armor picks for the Trooper class:


5. Resolute Protector

An older armor set, the Resolute Protector has withstood the test of time due to its relatively cheap nature, and of course its pattern.

  • Though its base coloration looks like splattered paint, with another dye, it’s easily mistakable for blood. Gruesome, but quite a statement
  • While the helmet on this set is not your traditional trooper helmet, it's interesting in its own right

How to acquire: Though the Resolute Protector is not currently up for sale on the Cartel Market, this is a fairly cheap set on the GTN, ranging from around 2 million to 5 million in-game credits.

4. Trooper’s Exalted Set

If you’re looking for a traditional trooper set – pretty much the first set you ever see the Trooper in on the character creation screen – this is the perfect fit for you.

  • Let’s be real, camouflage armor is hard to come by. This set comes ready-made for camouflage purposes, and looks amazing while doing it
  • As a legacy set, this armor can be transferred between other Troopers of your legacy!

How to acquire: Probably the cheapest of the bunch, this entire legacy set will only cost you 1,200,000 in-game credits, and can be bought from a legacy vendor near the Senate building on Coruscant. Remember, you must be level 20 Legacy and on a Trooper character to purchase and use this set.

3. Tactical Infantry

This set is very similar to the Trooper’s Exalted, with a few key differences that make it all the rage.

  • When your weapon is drawn, this set will pop up two separate holo-images (seen above), one right in front of your helmet, and a panel to your right. Cool effects make this simple set stand out
  • This set also comes with orange lights scattered throughout the armor, and is fully dyeable

How to acquire: Another set that is unavailable on the CM for the time being, this set can still be found on the GTN for around 20 million in-game credits. Keep your eyes peeled for better deals, and you’re sure to snag this set for much cheaper.

2. Havoc Squad Armor

A beloved fan favorite, this iconic armor is based on the gear worn in one of SWTOR’s first cinematic trailers (Hope). 

  • A sleeker take on bulky trooper armor, this set is striking without any modifications
  • With its own jetpack in tow, you’ll look prepared to take on waves of Imperial soldiers and Sith and live to tell the tale

How to acquire: You can find the Havoc Squad armor on the Cartel Market for 2,300 Cartel Coins. Depending on your server’s economy, this set is available on the GTN for around 100 million in-game credits, give or take.

1. Holoshield Trooper Armor

Relatively new to the scene, this armor set is not only well-made, but well-fortified!

  • Like the Tactical Infantry, this set comes with a flair! Upon drawing your weapon, blue holographic shields will appear along your helmet’s visor, your wristguards, shoulders and on your back!
  • This armor comes with a unique helmet that goes well not only with the set it was made for, but with others as well.

How to acquire: This set is available on the Cartel Market for 2,600 Cartel Coins. You can also find it on the GTN for around 230 million in-game credits.
