Background[edit | edit source]
The Nod Fanatics are handpicked squads of the most zealous Nod foot-soldiers. They are charged with carrying Nod's colors into the battle, dreaming to inspire their comrades by sacrificing themselves in battle.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Strong against infantry, can attack vehicles, cannot attack aircraft. Reveals invisible units. Death of a squad member boosts nearby friendly units.
Game unit[edit | edit source]
Fanatics are capable of delivering damage to infantry near that of Flame Troopers, and even vehicles cannot afford to ignore them for too long. The only thing that stands in the way of Fanatics to become the ultimate early game stand-alone infantry is their low health. But surviving is not what they are there for. Their main role is to die at the appropriate time and near to the right friendly units. When one of the member of the squad dies, it boosts all surrounding friendly units to the effect of Jackson's Heroic Charge. Although in the perfect circumstance one squad of Fanatics could boost the whole army three times over, it is almost impossible to achieve, since it usually takes the opponent to kill them.
Fanatics work well combined with the Scorpion Tank and other Fanatics. A pair of Fanatic squads will swiftly deal with Shockwave Troopers, since the dying squad will boost up the other squad thus substantially increasing the already high damage output. The Scorpion Tank is a great companion because together they can easily pressure the harvester. One of the best counters to the Scorpion tank is Missile Squad, but Fanatics can get rid of those quickly. If the opponent first tries to deal with the Fanatics, they will boost the Scorpion tank, which then can go after the harvester.
If the opponent is ignoring the Fanatics, they can be killed off by being placed in Tiberium cloud or Fire patch, but these tactics are opportunistic and will kill off the whole squad, not single members.
The main weakness of the Fanatics are air units, which can afford to ignore them and deal with other units. Riflemen and Sniper Team are an effective answer as well, since the former will trade favorably and the latter can take them out from a safe distance and use Missile Squad to block/counter boosted units.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Don't see much value in their own lives.
