In-Game Description
"Shielded soldier who became Beatriz's bodyguard. Chivalrous spirit is overflowing more than usual."

The Bodyguard (Shielded Soldier) is a renamed and powered-up version of the W.Shielded Soldier, first appearing within Metal Slug Attack during the Extra Ops titled "Queen's Battle". Parts can currently be obtained through the Battle Shop and Rebel Army Event Crank.

This bodyguard is the strongest of the shielded soldiers, having much more health compared to the similar shielded soldiers but at the cost of more AP. He is faster than his other shielded counterparts. Like the plain Shielded Soldier, he can take advantage of any health buffs (team affiliation, Donald Morden or the Rebel Hi-Do) to further increase his health. He can use his shield to make him temporarily invulnerable, which is activated whenever his special is activated or his evasion triggers (with MSA Skill small + 4).

The most effective way to counter this Shielded Soldier is with stun, which disables his ability to block. As his low AP cost means he'll come out very early, units like the Mini Caterpillar or the Professor are recommended to stun him. He has no resistance to incendiary attacks, so Ralf (or his Crazy variant) can also deal with him easily. 

When placed in a deck with the Bodyguard Rifleman, Bodyguard Infantry, and Beatriz, they form the "Queens Battle" team, reducing their AP costs by 20%.
