Droptroopers are unique Peacekeeper units specifically trained to deploy from Helicopters in order to secure locations and defend from enemies for a short while until being officially secured and developed. They are more heavily armored than normal peacekeepers and are clad in dark gray armor and helmets. They carry standard issue Agency Assault Rifles like normal peacekeepers, although use them more effectively.
Dropsquads are seen in Crackdown 2 when the Agent captures a tactical location, although only after Cell resistance has been eliminated. They are deployed by weaponless Helicopters in the same fashion that Vehicles are delivered, although they repel down a short length of rope from the helicopter rather than the helicopter landing before flying away.
