The growth accelerator is a structure utilized by the alien Scrin to improve the growth speed of a Tiberium field by 50%.

Background

These structures have been observed to be placed atop of Tiberium fissures (or the middle of a Tiberium field) in the fields that are being harvested by the Scrin. These could be the aliens' version of an irrigation system, designed to artificially accelerate and nurture the growth of their prized Ichor. To be able to build Growth Accelerators, the Foreman must have an Extractor present. The Accelerator could be placed at ANY tiberium fissure, even if the fissure is well away from the Foreman's ground control.

Growth Accelerator is only available for the Scrin and Traveler-59. Reaper-17 deploys a more advanced successor of the Growth Accelerator, the Growth Stimulator.

Foreman 371, during the mission in London, deployed several Growth Accelerators on three Tiberium Fields.

Game structure

Growth Accelerators can be planted onto the central spawn point of a Tiberium field to increase the regrowth of the new crystal deposits by 50%. Though expensive, they are invaluable for sustained battles of attrition.

Role in Global Conquest

The Growth Accelerator is used as a support power in Global Conquest, where it increases the regeneration rate of Tiberium within its area for economic purposes. This support power costs 1000 credits, requires a Tier 3 base in the map, and can only be placed adjacent to one as well.
