A genetically enhanced next-generation special forces soldier who has undergone gene therapy. Genome Soldiers have genes specialized for combat ("soldier genes") transplanted into their bodies, enhancing their senses of sight and hearing, among other abilities.
The vast majority of Genome Soldiers have no experience in actual combat but have undergone VR training with Force 21 and other units. Some say the so-called Gulf War Syndrome, which afflicted many soldiers with a variety of ailments, was partly due to the side effects of Genome Soldier testing. The Genome Soldiers joined FOXHOUND in the insurrection on Shadow Moses Island, but this was due to brainwashing by Psycho Mantis.
