"Trespassers on the vehicle! Fan out and eliminate!"
―Range trooper Captain Denwade Banevans during the heist on Vandor[src]

Range troopers were a specialized variant of the Galactic Empire's stormtroopers.


Range troopers were deployed by the Galactic Empire as a Stormtrooper variant. They were equipped with helmets similar in design to both the Imperial combat assault tank pilot's and Coastal defender stormtrooper's helmets, heavy armor with fur and a chestplate much like that of cold weather assault stormtroopers,[3] and were armed with E-10R blaster rifles. They were also equipped with magnetic #A7.5 Range Trooper gription boots which allowed sure footing atop fast-moving vehicles. The troopers were some of the toughest in the Imperial Military and viewed other forces as "softer" amateurs.[1]

Several range troopers were deployed to Vandor during the reign of the Empire and guarded a 20-T Railcrawler conveyex transport when Tobias Beckett's crew raided the transport for coaxium.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Range troopers appear in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story.[2]

The magnetic effect of their boots was achieved by the filmmakers using a complicated wire rig for the actors' feet.[4]
