Devourer Tanks are the Scrin equivalent of the human main battle tank.

Background[edit | edit source]

Unlike other Scrin armour, the Devourer appears designed after human heavy tanks, albeit without a turret, yet features superior maneuverability and firepower thanks to its long-range proton cannon. The "Devourer" name refers to how these alien war machines have been observed soaking up Tiberium in order to supercharge their weaponry.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

CNCTW Uncombine with Buzzers Cameo.png
Uncombine with Buzzers Orders the Buzzer swarm attached to the vehicle to detach and roam freely (Ctrl+A).
CNCTW Conversion Beam Cameo.png
Conversion Beam Devourer Tanks can charge their weapons from nearby Tiberium fields or allied Extractors/Refineries, receiving a sizable boost in firepower represented by a green beam. The Tiberium charge inflicts 800 (Cannon) damage.

Upgrades[edit | edit source]

CNCKW Conversion Reserves Cameo.png
Conversion Reserves Double the amount of Tiberium that a Devourer tank can hold, increasing the amount of charge to 20 shots with the cost to fully charge remaining constant at $100 worth of raw Tiberium (Ctrl+F). Purchasable at Reaper-17 Technology Assembler for $1000 and takes 0:30 to research.

In-game[edit | edit source]

Devourers are so called as they have been witnessed absorbing Tiberium in a similar fashion to the Scrin harvester; they seem to do so to charge their main weapon, a long-range proton cannon capable of dealing significant damage to armoured targets. In terms of raw firepower the vehicle certainly stands up to MBT-6 Predators, while consistently proving stronger than Scorpion tanks. They also have the longest range of any non-siege unit, able to fire upon human tank divisions well before they can respond, and when supercharged their range increases even further. Many Scrin Foremen exploit this advantage by firing on enemy tank divisions and moving back using their superior speed as the hostile tanks try to get within range. This tactic can destroy even Mammoth tanks if used properly.

Devourers have no protection against aircraft and are ineffective against infantry; however the Scrin know this and rarely deploy them without support.

Reaper-17 Devourer tanks can be upgraded with Conversion Reserves to stay supercharged longer.
