Confessors are an elite Nod tech infantry unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals. They excel against infantry.

Background[edit | edit source]

Confessors are an elite caste of Nod spiritual and military leaders. Their black armor, red capes and intimidating presence inspires zeal in their followers and terror in their enemies. Known to wield heavy gatling guns, they can tear enemy infantry and aircraft to shreds.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Strong against infantry and aircraft, can target vehicles.
  • Empowers other friendly adjacent infantry units with 50% increased Attack Speed.
  • Reveals adjacent stealthed units.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

Confessors are a late game anti-infantry and anti-air infantry squad.

They are a unique in that they are the only infantry unit in the game that is both effective against aircraft and infantry. If opponents rely on infantry and aircraft for all their anti-infantry work, the Confessors can be very difficult to remove.

Their ability to boost infantry attack speed is best paired with Cyborgs or Mutant marauders, since Confessors are available only during the late game and at that time it's difficult to push out light anti-vehicle infantry in significant numbers. Another complementary unit is a Basilisk.

Confessors are vulnerable to all but the lightest anti-infantry vehicles. They are also vulnerable to Snipers due to their movement speed and range, and Chemical warriors due to their chem cloud and high health. Confessors also make good counters to their GDI counterpart the zone troopers.
