Background[edit | edit source]
Unlike its GDI counterpart, the Guardian APC, the Reckoner is unarmed and does not have firing ports. However, it has a larger crew capacity, being able to carry two squads of infantry. The Reckoner can be deployed into a stationary bunker to provide extra protection and will do so automatically if it sustains too much damage. In this state, not only can the infantry inside fire out, but it also gains enough room for three squads of infantry.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
|Deploy||The Reckoner transforms into a stationary bunker, gaining a third garrison slot. Infantry can now fire out of the Reckoner. The Reckoner gains an additional 1500 hit points added to its pre-existing total. All damage taken by a deployed Reckoner is reduced by 75% (Ctrl+S).|
|Drop Off||Orders infantry units to exit the Reckoner at the designated location (Ctrl+A).|
Upgrades[edit | edit source]
|Dozer blades||Dozer Blades provide Reckoners with an immunity to mines, as well as a 15% armor increase and the ability to crush heavy infantry (Ctrl+A).||Purchasable at any Operations Center for a cost of $2000 and takes 1:00 to research.|
In-game[edit | edit source]
The Reckoner bunker has several unique characteristics. Once deployed, it cannot pack up into vehicle form again. It is able to protect the infantry inside from garrison-clearing weapons, but all of the garrisoned infantry will be killed if the bunker is destroyed. The deployed Reckoner cannot be repaired like a structure but can be repaired by repair drones from a war factory.
The Reckoner cannot be airlifted by a Carryall.

- The Reckoner is almost identical in functionality to the battle bus from Command & Conquer: Generals: Zero Hour, with the exception that the battle bus cannot deploy into a bunker at will.
