The Scavenger is a rare Nod infantry unit in Command & Conquer: Rivals.

Background[edit | edit source]

In the Yellow Zones, you learn that survival always comes first. Scavengers have been raised to find the value in anything they find. The brotherhood of Nod, who frequently recruit from the Yellow Zone, pay the scavengers for their salvaged goods creating a beneficial relationships between the two parties. The scavengers are always on the lookout for a bit of coin even if it means benefiting of the deaths of enemies and allies alike.[2]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Can target infantry, strong against vehicles and aircraft. Reveals invisible units. Gains 10 Tiberium if any unit dies adjacent to the Scavenger.

Game unit[edit | edit source]

In the combat the Scavenger squad fulfills the same role as the Laser Squad, but it is more expensive, slower, has less damage output and less overall health. However, when their special salvaging ability makes up for the shortcomings. When any unit dies next to them, they collect 10 Tiberium. If multiple scavengers are nearby, each of them will salvage 10 Tiberium, even from Cyberwheels. This means that in the early game Nod can essentially finance their war effort directly from the combat itself, which can help bring out heavier weaponry sooner.

As the battle goes on, the Tiberium income becomes less of a problem and raw firepower becomes more important. Because of this Scavengers are useful to help gain income for heavy units, like Artillery and Stealth Tank pair.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Mercantile attitude. When idle, looks around and sometimes picks up and pockets some valuables from the ground.
