Particularly captivating were the new Coastal Defender Stormtroopers, also known as Shoretroopers.
Sharp eyes noticed them in the very first teaser trailer for the new movie and speculation about their identity swirled heavily until the premier. The new armor even toured and made several appearances at events leading up to the big day and fans combed the internet for any information they could find about the new baddies.
Throughout the galaxy as a whole, Shoretroopers are considered fairly rare. Stationed at tropical and coastal bases, they are specially outfitted to handle combat in their wet and humid environments.
For their appearance in Rogue One, they patrolled the Imperial security complex (and its surrounding beaches) on Scarif.
The weaponry we know that they employed, at least, included the E-11 Blaster Rifle, the E-22 Blaster Rifle, and thermal imploders.
In the extended universe mobile game, Star Wars: Commander, Heavy Shoretroopers who specialize in heavy artillery makes a rare appearance.
It remains to be seen if further variants will be established in future canon.
Rank is established by unique armor markings of at least three known types;
Foot Soldiers have a red right bicep plate, Squad Leaders share the red plate but also sport an blue band across their chest and shoulders.
