Overview[]

The Lightning Dragoon is a unit added in the 2.6 Patch, and its stats were updated in the 2.8 Patch. Overall, it is very similar to the Lightning Trooper, though with some differences: lower health and a lower damage, plus a reduced stun chance. At rank one it has Stat-HP 180 and will deal damage from 63-117. The Lightning Dragoon also has the same incredible range as the Lightning Trooper at 1-5.

At rank two it unlocks Stun Burst, coming with a StatusEffect-stun Stun chance of 100% (at the front), potentially crippling enemy formations. This unit unlocks its second ability slot at Rank 3.

Both attacks share the same ammo, though the Stun Burst attack consumes two ammo instead of one for the basic attack. Using up all three ammunition triggers a very long 8-turn reload period. The player has a choice to either use 3 bolt bursts, or 1 bolt burst and a stun burst.

This unit has a high SP value, and therefore it is good to have in SP Farms, alongside wimps and sandbags. Such units are often referred to as "goons."

One of the disadvantages of training this unit is the fact that it costs Bars 15 Bars.
