What Are Shoretroopers in Andor? Star Wars Explained

Shoretroopers are in the latest Andor episode, are they a new kind of Stormtrooper?

Stormtroopers are finally a part of Star Wars Andor, as are their forgotten cousin Shoretroopers. Surprisingly, these beach troops weren’t created by the Andor team—they were already a part of Star Wars lore. Here’s everything you need to know about what Shoretroopers are in Star Wars Andor.

What Are the Troopers Who Arrested Cassian?

Shoretroopers are specially trained soldiers who enforce the Empire’s will on tropical planets, like Scout Troopers on Endor; they even have brown armor to provide sand camouflage. They’re rare because the Empire usually doesn’t set up garrisons on beach worlds, although it’s gotta be a great assignment. Their personalities are the same as regular Stormtroopers, assuming almost everyone is a rebel spy.

Cassian Andor is just walking along, minding his own business, when he sees a few people run past him, pursued by Shoretroopers. He starts walking a bit faster and is soon stopped by a trooper because he seems suspicious.

Unfortunately, this won’t be his last encounter with Shoretroopers, as they guard the Scarif base in Rogue One. It might not be his last encounter with that security droid either, who could be his partner K2-SO in a few years.

That’s everything we have on what Shoretroopers are in Star Wars. Check out some of our other Andor content, like the death of Clem Andor, the Eye of Aldhani, and Dedra Meero’s pill.
