Abilities CNCTW Deploy Cameo.png Unpack into Outpost

Explorers are bizarre, floating Scrin support vehicles that apparently work in much the same way as human Surveyors and Emissaries in that they allow the Scrin to establish ground control at a particular location. Like its human equivalents, the Explorer is faster but less heavily armoured than the Scrin 'MCV', the Drone Ship, and is not able to deploy Scrin structures.

Explorers are most frequently used by the Scrin to capture ground around areas of Tiberium, which the Scrin pursue with a ferocity unmatched even by Nod. Once deployed the Explorer becomes a stationary structure, and it has not been seen to un-deploy, unlike Drone Ships.

Abilities

Deploy This ability orders the Explorers to unpack into an Outpost. It can only be issued on flat terrain and once given, cannot be revoked. Explorers deployment is permanent (Ctrl+A).
