Ya can't hit those shielded Octojerks from the front!

Shielded Octotroopers are Octarian fighters. They use shields to protect themselves from attacks.


Shielded Octotroopers appear identical to Octotroopers or Twintacle Octotroopers, but are equipped with an impenetrable shield that is similar in appearance to a welding mask. They possess an exposed backside which can be inked to defeat them. Shielded Octotroopers will also rotate to watch Agent 3, making them only vulnerable if the player sneaks up behind them, or distracts them with a Sub Weapon.

In Octo Canyon, their Sheilds can be destroyed instead of having to distract them with any type of Sub weapons.

Appearances in Octo Valley

Shielded octotroopers appear in the first mission, but are uncommon afterwards.

To defeat Shielded Octarians, they must be distracted, making them turn around and show their vulnerable side. Distracting them with Splat Bombs, Burst Bombs, or Seekers, is an easy method as they will turn around in surprise. It is also possible to simply sneak around through ink while in squid form, as they are unable to notice.
