The Power Troopers are ‘Named Enemies’ in Borderlands 3. They used to be a ‘Rare Spawn’ and not always show up, however, Gearbox Software changed the spawn rate to 100%. You can get the side mission “Kill Power Troopers” from the bounty board on Sanctuary III. The Power Troopers are a reference to the tv series The Power Rangers.
Power Troopers Location
You can find Power Troopers on the map, Atlas HQ on the planet Promethea. When you fast-travel to the map, walk straight ahead, make a right, and then left to leave the first area. The natural progression through the map is to go right. But there is a shortcut so go left and once you reached the end, climb up the wall. There is a small ledge that you can grab and skip like half of the map. This shortcut also places you right in front of the Power Troopers. It might take a few seconds for them to spawn in and jump down. Check the infographic below for ‘The Skip’ (dude).
