The Phantom is a Nod air unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

Nod's Phantom air superiority fighter was developed as a response to GDI's increasing aerial dominance. The Phantom's missiles employ charged particle EMP generators. This allows the Nod fighter to slow down enemy aircraft, making their escape nearly impossible.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Strong against aircraft, cannot target ground. Attacks against aircraft slow their Attack Speed and Movement Speed. Can also attack the enemy base.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

A master of hit-and-run tactics, the Phantom isn't designed for long fights. Rather, it is designed to perform burst attacks against enemy aircraft before flying off to find another target.[2] This burst damage allows them to take out lighter aircraft in a flash, but if the target is still operational, it will take a while before it can be taken down completely.

One awkward target for the Phantom is Drone Swarm — it has 5 drones in the squad and phantom has only 4 missiles, allowing the swarm to survive and hold pads.

The relatively fragile hull makes it susceptible to ground-to-air units, especially Pitbull, that can track them down.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Professional, yet eager to fight. When moving, performs barrel roll.
