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 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 shields can be destroyed instead of having to distract them with any type of sub weapons.


Octo Valley

Shielded Octotroopers appear in the first mission but are uncommon afterwards.

Octo Canyon

Octo Expansion



To defeat Shielded Octarians, they must be distracted, making them turn around and show their vulnerable side. Distracting them with S2 Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bombs, S2 Weapon Sub Burst Bomb.png Burst Bombs, or S Weapon Sub Seeker.png 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 or octopus form, as they are unable to notice.
