The Banshee is a common Nod's anti-ground aircraft in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Banshee was Nod's primary multi-role fighter aircraft during the Second Tiberium War. Based on Scrin technology and utilizing exotic plasma cannons, the Banshee is a capable weapon against both aircraft and ground vehicles.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Can attack infantry, strong against vehicles and aircraft.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

A universal workhorse unit, has no special features or abilities, but more than makes up for it by delivering significant damage.

Works well with Venom, as both units cover all main unit types. Especially effective against tanks and in numbers can pose challenge to Pitbulls.

Their anti-aircraft capabilities are solid, but they struggle to trade cost effectively against Talons, but will take out drones with ease.

Personality[edit | edit source]

♂ Believes themselves to be ghosts. Low voice. No idle animations.
