Shadow Troopers were a black armored variant of the Galactic Empire's Stormtrooper. They used T-21 light repeating blasters as their primary weapon. These were black to mimic when infiltrating enemy bases also had the ability to make them "invisible" when their camouflage did not favor them (but these could not totally become invisible) these carry heavy blasters or with much damage, it is said that These were trained by the emperor in person losing all human feeling and making them a killing machine. When the First Order came to power, they used Elite Stormtroopers, which probably evolved from these.
During the Galactic Civil War, Shadow Troopers were prominently used in the Imperial Army to fight the growing forces of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, or Rebel Alliance, following the destruction of the first Death Star during the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY.
They were used in small units, with only a few Shadow Troopers being seen in combat against Rebel soldiers during the war, this was mainly due to the fact that Shadow Troopers despite being highly trained and skilled Stormtroopers, Shadow Troopers were mainly trained for infiltration and sabotage missions, not full on warfare. Despite this, Shadow Troopers could be seen fighting the Rebel Alliance during the Tatooine Campaign and a battle on the planet Sullust.
