- Zone Shatterer overloading its sonic emitter

The Zone Shatterer was a variant of the Shatterer used exclusively by the ZOCOM subfaction of GDI. It was only available in Kane's Wrath.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Zone Shatterer was designed for Red Zone deployment with ZOCOM Tiberium-reduction squadrons. By drawing upon reserve power, the Zone Shatterer is capable of overloading its sonic emitter, allowing ZOCOM squadrons to more effectively clear out the larger Tiberium crystal structures present in most Red Zones[1].

In-game[edit | edit source]

Despite being a more powerful version of the Shatterer, the Zone Shatterer's regular attack has the exact same power as its regular variant. However, its Overload Beam is 50% more powerful than a regular sonic beam, at the cost of rendering the Zone Shatterer immobile briefly. This side effect can be circumvented by having multiple Zone Shatterers firing Overload Beams in turn.

Otherwise, the Zone Shatterer is almost completely identical to the regular version. It is lightly armored and reasonably fast, can damage multiple enemies at once with its sonic beams, and is extremely effective against tightly packed enemy units or structures. However, it is defenseless against enemy aircraft.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Call for transport
Overload Beam The Zone Shatterer fires off an overcharged sonic blast which inflicts 1500 cannon damage with a splash width of 10 and a range of 375. This blast disables the vehicle for 6 seconds (Ctrl+S).
Call for transport
Call for transport If an Airfield is deployed, Zone Shatterer can call in a V-35 Ox Transport for pickup for a small fee of $200. This ability has a 2 minute cooldown (Ctrl+A).
