This is a complete list of the Nod Infantry assigned to your command during Twisted Insurrection. Each unit has it's own introductory during the campaign progression so you can figure out what unit is best for what roles. Please note that changes will more than likely occur over time and some unit/cameos are still using placeholder images as we are still in our beta stages.



Militant
Unit pcture

Nod's basic infantry, militia are fast and cheap but individually vulnerable, they are best when pitched against other light infantry. However, when used in large groups, they can be devastating to even the mightiest units. Tiberium harms militia, like most other unprotected infantry.

Unit pcture

Nod Machinists are capable of repairing friendly structures, as well as taking complete control over those of an enemy. In addition to their standard training the Machinists of The Brotherhood of Nod are trained extensively in the art of hijacking. And are capable of piloting almost any vehicle. While very effective on the field for these reasons they are vulnerable to all types of warheads.

Incinerator

Unit pcture

If a Nod Incinerator's backpack was to explode upon death it could have disastrous results for any other soldiers travelling with him.

  • Cost: 250
  • Requires: Hand of Nod
  • Primary Weapon: Flamethrower
  • Purpose: Anti-Infantry, Anti-Structure
  • Firepower: High
  • Armour: None
  • Speed: Slow

Ghost

Unit pcture

Nod Ghosts have the ability to sneak in and out of enemy bases undetected providing vital information which could turn the tide of a battle. Once a Ghost gains access to an enemy structure, you will be notified of the enemies status regarding that structure.

Infiltrate War Factory - See what enemy is building

Infiltrate Construction Yard - See what enemy is building

  • Requires: Hand of Nod, Radar
  • Primary Ability: Reveals Enemy Production Information
  • Purpose: Scouting
  • Armour: None
  • Speed: Fast
  • Tech Level: 5


Infector

Unit pcture

The Nod Infector commando, specialize in Tiberium-based warfare as well as also being trained in how to handle Tiberium life forms up-close and personal. The Infector commando is armed with the SMR.2, a sniper rifle which fires capsules filled with a Tiberium mutagen that will instantly kill or mutate its target into a Viscaroid within a matter of seconds.

The Infector is feared by both GDI and GloboTech infantry and it has been known for enemy infantry to flee once they catch sight of the Infector, Nod have now decided to arm the Infector with the YS.51 Web Grenade Launcher which fires a grenade fitted with a proximity sensor once at the appropriate range the grenade will burst above the targets head releasing a sticky web that will pin the target making it easier for the Infector to eliminate them.

The Infector program is an offshoot of project Re-Genesis; candidates are selected from convicted Nod military personal awaiting execution. They are offered death or a chance of redemption in the Infector program, little do those that accept the offer know that once the process is complete they will be as good as dead just not in the physical sense at least. After the initial screening process, the new candidate undergoes extensive mental conditioning and reprogramming to ensure their complete loyalty to the Brotherhood, erasing the subject's original personality in the process.

The Candidates are subjected to Tiberium based alterations both chemical and genetic as well as receiving cybernetic enhancement. If the subject survives the procedures, they will benefit from enhanced eyesight, hearing, strength and vastly increased reflexes, as well as the ability to heal when in contact with Tiberium. Unlike the random mutation suffered by the Forgotten the Infector is stable suffering none of the side effects of Tiberium poisoning.

Once they have had a chance to adapt to their physical changes, they are then put through a gruelling training regime and familiarized with their future combat gear, such as the Infectors advanced battle armour, as well as their trademark weapons the SMR.2 sniper rifle and the YS.51 Web Grenade Launcher.

Once they have earned the title of Infector they are one of the Brotherhoods most effective as well as feared weapons. Many within the ranks of The Brotherhood consider the Infector candidates as unworthy of the gift they are granted, as they become one-step closer to Kane's vision of perfection as appears to be the opinions towards the Cybernetics Program.

  • Cost: 1000
  • Requires: Hand of Nod, Technology Center
  • Primary Weapon: SMR.2 Mutation Rifle
  • Secondary Weapon: Web Grenade Launcher
  • Purpose: Special
  • Firepower: High
  • Armour: Average
  • Speed: Average
  • Tech Level: 9


Vulcan Cyborg

Unit pcture

The Cyborgs heavy armour means it can soak up small arms fire with little effect; their arm mounted Vulcan Cannon can mow down enemy infantry and even destroy light vehicles with little effort. Cyborgs are incredibly resilient and continue to function even after suffering horrific damage. Their mutated flesh means that they can regenerate on even the smallest patch of Tiberium though they aren't capable of replacing lost limbs.

Although physically resilient, Vulcan Cyborgs are slow moving and are vulnerable to anti-armour weapons such as Discus grenades which can make short work of them. Also of note the mechanical systems of the Vulcan Cyborg are susceptible to EMP and Ion Storms.

Cyborgs are the combination of living tissue and machine. Most of the early prototypes were created from mutant prisoners, but the majority in service today are volunteers who were offered the chance to continue to serve the memory of Kane even after their natural life has expired. The subject is lobotomised and then altered with several Tiberium based treatments. Many subjects do not survive the deliberate mutation of their flesh and die before receiving a single cybernetic augmentation. Those that survive then have roughly 65% of their body surgically removed, the remainder is then grafted into a heavily armoured mechanical exo-skeleton. Many more subjects die during surgery but those that are successfully grafted into their new body are then linked with Nod's main governing AI. Then only after going through many diagnostic checks are they fitted with their weapons.

The Cyborg creation is heavily followed up by the Inner Circle, however long-term Kane followers tend to frown upon the cybernetic experiments, as they do not believe this was Kane's true legacy.

  • Cost: 600
  • Requires: Hall of Faith
  • Primary Weapon: Vulcan Cannon
  • Purpose: Anti-Infantry
  • Firepower: Average
  • Armour: Heavy
  • Speed: Average
  • Tech Level: 6


Tachyon Cyborg

Unit pcture

Commonly named the 'Cannon' Cyborg, they are armed with an anti-armour tachyon cannon similar to that of the Eclipse Tank. While not as effective as Eclipse Tanks in the field, Tachyon Cyborgs are extremely durable and will always be one of the last units standing in a firefight.

Although physically resilient, Tachyon Cyborgs are vulnerable to anti-armour weapons such as Discus grenades which can make short work of them. Also of note the mechanical systems of the Cannon Cyborg are susceptible to EMP and Ion Storms.

  • Primary Weapon: Anti-Armor Tachyon Pulse Cannon
  • Purpose: Anti-Armour
  • Firepower: Average
  • Armour: Heavy
  • Speed: Average
  • Tech Level: 7


Cyborg Reaper

Unit pcture

These frightening machines are known only as Cyborg "Reapers" due to their older programming to capture enemy spies using web technology now used only by Infector commandos. Armed with twin ballistic missiles, the Reaper is a dangerous threat to armour and aircraft alike. It's quad-locomotor allows it to move across all forms of terrain swiftly and easily accessing the most well defended bases with ease.

Although physically resilient, Cyborg "Reapers" are slow moving and are vulnerable to anti-armour weapons such as Discus grenades which can make short work of them. Also of note the mechanical systems of the Cyborg Reaper are susceptible to EMP and Ion Storms.

  • Speed: Average
  • Tech Level: 8


Cyborg Commando

Unit pcture

The Cyborg Commandos are the highest-ranking units in Nod's infantry divisions. Stripped of their last remains of humanity apart from their brain, the Commandos live to serve as instruments of war. They are armed with a peculiar, energy-based weapon of unknown technology. Any attempts to salvage the weapon has caused its self-destruct ability to activate. The weapon fires an accelerating sphere of what appears to be plasma, with a bright, glowing green tint. The sphere uses unknown methods to track and home to the target, disintegrating it in a furious explosion.

Even though the Cyborg Commando was designed as a spearhead supersoldier, it is not without imperfections; EMP and Ion Storms can render this hauling terminator temporaly useless.
