Description[edit | edit source]
The GDI Disruptor is an experimental siege weapon which uses sonic energy to batter down enemy structures and devastate enemy infantry. Although largely phased out by the Third Tiberium War, the Disruptor remains a potent anti-structure unit.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Effective against infantry and structures, cannot target air. Can attack up to 2 tiles away. Damages any enemy in the beam. Fires while moving.
Game unit[edit | edit source]
Disruptor is a medium armored tank that can remove the base with at most 5 shots (in 25 seconds). It has higher health than that of Predator Tank. The long range beam can dispatch of infantry even before they reach the tank, and it assist supporting units with significant chip damage to other vehicles. When this tank is heading for the base, it can't be ignored.
Sending infantry to counter them will end in a disaster. If sent alone, Disruptor will kill them before they close the distance. In the late game there is not enough population cap to afford swarming a Disruptor with a lot of infantry.
Disruptors are vulnerable to air attacks and their slow speed means that there is enough time to prepare an armored response, that can block and destroy them, provided that they are sighted in time.
Since Disruptor is a specialty unit, it would be well paired with supporting units like Zone Troopers, which can effectively protect the Disruptor from both armor and aircraft. However, this combination of units is expensive and requires stalling the game as long as possible before these units can be deployed.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Demolition squad. Very lax communication. When idle, moves the sonic dish.
