The Missile Squad is a common GDI infantry squad unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

The missile squad is GDI's primary anti-vehicle infantry unit. Equipped with FGM-90 shoulder mounted missile launchers, they are effective against both vehicles and aircraft alike.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

  • Strong against vehicles and aircraft.
  • Reveals adjacent stealthed units.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Quietly enjoys blowing things up. When idle, stretch out.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

Cheap and versatile, missile squad is effective against most early aircraft and armoured vehicles. Even against dedicated early anti-infantry armor can be effective when two missile squads are attacking.

Especially suited to counter early game rushes against harvester by Attack Bikes and Laser Drones and can stop tanks in their tracks.

Works well together with anti-infantry unit which has shooting range 2, like MG Squad or Sniper Team.

Most useful in the early game where cont efficiency is most valuable, it can deal with any War Factory or Air Tower unit cost-efficiently, but when population cap becomes the limiting factor, their effectiveness is diminished.

Can be useful in the mid-game against heavy tank use, but will not hold well against late game vehicles and aircraft.

It shares the same stats and abilities as the Laser Squad.
