The Fanaticism is a rare Nod support power in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

Increases a unit's Attack Speed by 3 and Movement Speed by 75% for a short duration, but causes them to take 25% more damage

Game power[edit | edit source]

Fanaticism is a support power that greatly increases the speed of units, but makes them more fragile. The main beneficiaries of this ability are units which ramp up damage over time (like Giga-cannon) and units that can attack from a safe distance, like Artillery.

Apart from increased damage, the increased movement speed allows slower units to quicker establish themselves on the battlefield, which benefits the Avatar the most. Can compensate movement speed for slow unit and can even benefit faster ones, if they are needed on the pads right away.

This power should be used with care, since it can be lethal when facing burst units. E.g. a boosted Scorpion tank will fall apart from a single M.L.R.S. volley.

This boost stacks with inspirations of Confessors and Fanatics.
