In-Game Description
"A common military soldier. Wars are won with numbers!!"

Soldier is the basic, cheapest Unit of the Regular Army in Metal Slug Attack and is one of the 2 starter units (the other being Marco).

The soldier is cheap, much like the Rebel Infantry. There is a distinct difference though, as soldiers have a chance to dodge attacks when MSA Skill small + 4 is unlocked, while the rebel infantry has the chance to stun enemies with their grenades. Their cheap cost allows for great massing potential for a beginning player.

At higher levels, they should be replaced by other units as their low health makes almost every other unit capable of killing them with ease, especially piercing units.

Attacks

Long Range

Attribute pistol Knife: quick melee-range swing that damages all units in range.

Special

Attribute grenade Grenade: slow single short-range projectile that follows a high parabolic trajectory and explodes on impact, damaging all units close to the explosion.

  • Can be activated early to prevent being cancelled by enemy fire.
  • Anti-Air capable (requires timing).
  • Against units with low collision box can be effectively used once. At melee range flies past the target, and can be used to damage units behind it.
