The cyborg is an epic Nod tech unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Cyborg Reaper, upgraded with charged particle beams deployed by the Black Hand organization, can inflict EMP damage on enemy vehicles and aircraft. The quadrupedal Cyborg combines several Nod technological breakthroughs into a single terrifying unit, the very sight of which instills fear into all enemies of Kane.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Can target infantry Strong against vehicles Strong against aircraft
  • Attacks against vehicles and aircraft slow their Attack Speed and Movement Speed by 15% for 5 seconds[2].
  • Reveals invisible units.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

Cyborgs are a fast moving anti-air and anti-vehicle infantry squad. They will make a short work of lighter anti-infantry vehicles and aircraft, not to mention other armor. Their EMP is especially deadly on the defense, when incoming unit will be slowed down before having a chance to fire.

The long effect of the EMP means that if the Cyborg is attacked by multiple vehicles or aircraft, they can blast the other units every 5 seconds, to keep them all slowed.

Cyborgs are weak against infantry. Since their best defense is rapid offense and EMP, infantry are an especially awkward opponents. They should be paired with solid anti-infantry unit, like Widowmaker or Confessor.
