- Chemical Warriors when ordered to attack

The chemical warrior is an epic Nod infantry unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

Chemical Warriors are advanced soldiers recruited from Nod's elite Black Hand organization. Specially trained and equipped, they produce Tiberium Gas clouds that are highly toxic and corrosive.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Strong against infantry Can target vehicles Cannot target aircraft
  • Reveals invisible units.
  • Places Tiberium clouds.
  • Immune to Tiberium fields and clouds.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

One of the strongest infantry form the Hand of Nod, Chemical Warriors are effective against all infantry units. Their high health allows them to withstand even sustained anti-infantry damage for considerable time. A lot of the damage from the Warriors comes from the Tiberium cloud which deals splash damage. This cloud is most devastating against light infantry, like the Riflemen. The Chemical Warriors themselves do not suffer any ill effects from the cloud.

The Tiberium cloud stays on the field for a while even when the spraying has stopped. When Chemical Warriors are attacked by multiple infantry units, the best counter is to spray each unit a bit to place the Tiberium cloud on each of them, thus maximizing the total damage output.

Since a lot of the damage comes from the the could, when losing a member the Chemical Warrior squad doesn't lose its effectiveness as much as other squads.

When paired up with Jade, Chemical Warriors can be a decent answer to high tier Tech Lab units. The Warriors can spray them with the could and the Catalyst missile then deals a lot more damage and is impossible to dodge.

Chemical Warriors are very effective at base rushing. Their high health means they can't be easily stopped (unlike Chem buggy) so they have time to spray several hexes of the base before the Catalyst missile hits. Ideally the Chemical Warriors live long enough to be part of the explosion cloud themselves.

If the opposing player has Jade too, the Chemical Warriors can become a liability. If they win a ground battle and try to push through the clouds, the opponent's Catalyst missile can blow up the whole army.

The Chemical Warriors can be countered by air units (like Razorback and Venom), Sniper team and anti-infantry vehicles. When defending against base attack, ground units should try to block the incoming Chems and deny them the option to place the clouds anywhere near the base. If the Chems have reached the base, the ground units should not be standing next to the base when attacking the Chemical Warriors, because that will just allow them to place another Tiberium cloud that the Catalyst Missile would detonate.

Although immune to Tiberium fields and Tiberium Gas clouds, Chemical Warriors will take damage from Tiberium spray.
