A Soldier is the lowest Alien Rank, and is the one most commonly found in all mission profiles. Their role on board is to keep the UFO or Base secure and also to perform any general work they are ordered to do. In most missions they will be the first opponents encountered.

In combat a Soldier is only the equal of other ranks at best, and has the lowest intelligence. In terms of equipment they may have slightly more powerful weapons than some higher ranks such as Medics, but not always. Aside from that they are generally the easiest opponents you will run into on any given mission, although if the mission is with Ethereals that isn't much consolation.
