Notes

200% vs civilian buildings

Shock troopers are elite Scrin infantry units appearing in Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath.

Background[edit | edit source]

The deadliest Scrin infantry are heavily armored metallic beasts as big as an automobile. Shock Troopers, so called because of their vicious attacks on heavily populated areas, are more than capable of attacking armored vehicles head-on. When outfitted with upgrades, Shock Troopers can even teleport across the battlefield or overwhelm aircraft, not just land vehicles[1].

Abilities[edit | edit source]

CNCTW Blink Packs Cameo.png
Blink packs When activated, the selected Shock Troopers teleport to the target location. Groups of Shock Troopers teleport together, clumping up in the process. This targeted ability has a range of 750 and a 30 second cooldown (Ctrl+A).

Upgrades[edit | edit source]

CNCTW Plasma Disc Launchers Cameo.png
Plasma Disc Launchers Provide Shock Troopers with additional firepower and allowing them to target aircraft (Ctrl+S). Purchasable at any Stasis Chamber for $1500 and takes 0:45 to research.
CNCTW Blink Packs Cameo.png
Blink packs Allow Shock Troopers to teleport to the selected location (Ctrl+D). Purchasable at any Stasis Chamber for $500 and takes 0:15 to research.
CNCKW Advanced Articulators Cameo.png
Advanced articulators Add 85% speed to Shock trooper when upgraded (Ctrl+A). Purchasable at Traveler-59 Stasis Chamber for $1000 and takes 0:30 to research.

In-game[edit | edit source]

Shock troopers are armed with a beam weapon by default, which is capable of taking on light vehicles. When upgraded with plasma discs, they are even more dangerous and are able to attack aircraft. Furthermore, they can be upgraded with blink packs, which allows them to teleport for short distances.

Traveler-59 shock troopers are automatically equipped with blink packs. Reaper-17 can use the reinforcement ability Shock pods, which deploys three veteran Shock Trooper squads to any location on the map instantly.
