The buggy is a common Nod vehicle in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Buggy is emblematic of Nod's early weapon design philosophy. Fast, inexpensive and lightly armored, the Buggy is able to zip around the battlefield performing reconnaissance, anti-infantry and anti-aircraft operations.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Strong against infantry Can target vehicles Strong against aircraft
  • Can attack both Air and Ground units.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

Buggy is a lightly armored anti-infantry vehicle which is able to cause headaches to all light infantry. It's rapid fire and ability to target air makes it especially useful against Drone swarm and Laser drones. The damage against vehicles is limited, but can provide significant chip damage that allows to bring down the vehicles faster.

In early game pairs up well with Attack bikes, which take care of light vehicles and medium aircraft, whereas buggy can handle infantry and drones, which Bikes struggle against.

If anti-air capabilities are not a priority, Cyberwheels and Venoms can substitute Buggies. Cyberwheels can see further, does similar damage to infantry, and is cheaper, but lose their firepower as the squad shrinks, and do insignificant damage to vehicles. Venom does more damage and can fly over obstacles, but switching to air tower is expensive in the early game.

The light armor makes it vulnerable to almost any anti-armor threat, but the fast movement speed allows Buggies to outrun their foes and seek more favorable match-ups.
