The Basilisk is a rare Nod's anti-vehicle aircraft in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

Nicknamed “The Flying Obelisk” by GDI pilots, the Basilisk is a massive siege aircraft armed with Obelisk-class laser weapons. The Basilisk's laser ramps up its intensity slowly but can fire a continuous beam at enemy units and structures indefinitely.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Strong against vehicles, cannot target aircraft. After attacking for 2 seconds, damage increases significantly. Can attack up to 2 tiles away. Flying.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

Heaviest aircraft in Nod's arsenal, Basilisk can make a short work of all ground units, even infantry. Once it is at full power, it can melt away enemies quickly, making it nigh impossible for ground units to get close enough to even begin the attack. Basilisk is the ultimate answer to superunits, like Mammoth Tank.

The average movement speed makes it unsuitable to quickly react to the developments around the battlefield, but it can dominate in situations where all the action is taking place on couple of tiles.

Main threats to the Basilisk is a pair of Slingshots, pack of Talons or a persistent Hammerhead. To deal with these threats, Basilisk is most effective with Cyborgs or Stealth Tanks.
