The only thing that breaks them apart is pvp.

Commando troopers are significantly worse at pvp than gunslinger smugglers.
Hard mode: Play Republic
Nightmare mode: Play Republic on a pvp server
Are you man enough for the challenge ? Aunt Satele wants YOU.
Republic. No kids allowed.

Not exactly.. both are range. But gunslinger uses the cover mechanic, and wears medium armor. Lots of their moves can only be made from cover.

Trooper wears heavy armor and can use a regular strafe and shoot attack strategy.

Neither has to run.

Some people don't like the fact that the smuggler needs to take cover before it can use a lot of their moves.
In other words.. It's not a character for everybody, think like playing Mass effect or Gears of War. You need to take cover or you could die.

Trooper is a more conventional character in the way it plays. You stand around and shoot.

Not quite.
I find as a Commando I am much more on the move, in fact, as I don't have to hide behind cover the whole time. Having heavy armor does not make you a tank and does not make you incredibly durable, on the contrary you will get you face melted off if you're not careful.

You're a ranged DPS or healer, regardless. You can't take much damage.
The different is just that gunslingers have to do most of their damage from a stationary position, behind cover while Commandos are a bit more mobile, though not very fast.

Their actual gameplay is very different honestly, I suggest looking up some videos.
Perhaps base it on story if you still can't decide.

Does staying in cover make you as durable as a trooper?
