Background[edit | edit source]
Laser Squads are equipped with anti-air/anti-vehicle laser weaponry derived from Nod's fearsome Obelisk of Light technology.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Reveals adjacent stealthed units.
Game unit[edit | edit source]
Cheap and versatile, Laser Squad is effective against most early aircraft and armored vehicles. Two Laser Squads are effective even against early anti-infantry armor like Rhinos and Talons. Especially suited to counter early game rushes against harvesters by Attack Bikes and Laser Drone and can stop tanks in their tracks.
Works well with units which have long shooting range, like Giga-Cannon and Artillery, where Laser Squads provide blocking and decent protection form mechanized units. In the early game they are often paired with Militants.
Most useful in the early game, when cost efficiency is most valuable. It can deal with most War Factory or Helipad units, but when population cap becomes the limiting factor, their effectiveness is diminished.
In the mid-game it's useful against heavy tank use, but will not hold well against late game vehicles and aircraft.
A similar unit in the Nod arsenal is the Scavenger, which has worse battle stats, but makes up for it by being able to generate Tiberium income.
It shares the same stats and abilities as the Missile squad.
Decks[edit | edit source]
Laser Squad is a staple unit and will find a place in most Nod decks worth their salt.
