Renegade X - Brotherhood Of Nod Update!
The Brotherhood of Nod is a mystery. The origins of the organization and its charismatic leader is unknown. Its power is unprecedented. Its truth is unlimited. Nod as an organization appeared first in the mid 1990s, as the primary opposition to the Global Defense Initiative. The Brotherhood has a global presence, with a heavy concentration of its forces and influence covering the third world. They are pioneers in the refinement of Tiberium, and are always one step ahead in developing new technologies intended to take advantage of Tiberium growth worldwide.
Kane, the leader of the Brotherhood, is a mysterious figure. His origins, whereabouts, and any details about him whatsoever, remain unknown. Nod sees Kane as a savior proclaiming a new message of unity and freedom from the corrupt tyrants of the world. He propagates Tiberium as a gift to the earth, and its mutating effects on humans to be the next step in our evolution.
Nod does not come in peace. It comes ahead of peace - Kane.
The official Renegade X Nod wallpaper is now avaliable.
A Japanese woman covered in tattoos with a quiet, brooding, intense personality, Sakura Obata was raised in the male-dominated environment of the Japanese mob, the Yakuza. Disenchanted, she decided to use her considerable talents as a mercenary, and was hired by GDI to work with the Project: Shadow Strike unit, later known as the Dead 6 alongside then-captain Nick Parker. During one assignment, she was separated from her team and ambushed by Nod troopers. Since she was never heard from again, she was assumed dead.
However, it turned out she joined Nod. She was hired by general Gideon Raveshaw as his personal mercenary. As a commando armed with a Ramjet Rifle, Sakura is one of the most valuable units in the game!
Nod Armoured Personnel Carrier
We had decided to take a new design for Nod's APC. Influence has been taken from the Stryker vehicle. Armed with an M134 gatling machine gun, and with enough room for five passengers, the APC plays a very necessary role in the game.
The Nod Officer is the point man for Nod basic infantry on the field. He is both inexpensive and useful, as he uses a heavy chaingun to eliminate his enemies from close and far ranges alike. Watch out!
Nod Flame Tank
A personal favourite for many. Flame Tanks are a signature Nod vehicle, armed with dual flame cannons to ensure maximum damage, and heavy armour to guarantee that it will make it to its target. Although close ranged, Flame Tanks are a fiery threat to enemy vehicles, infantry, and structures. Don't let these in your base, GDI!
Firefly Laser Rifle
Nod's 'Firefly' Laser Rifle takes Brotherhood laser technology to ground level. Its instant beams not only maintain a good range, but are capable of tearing vehicles apart and incinerating enemy infantry. It is the primary weapon of the Stealth Blank Hand, creating a deadly mixture of stealthy tactics and powerful weaponry.
The texture is still an early Work in Progress!
SDT-B Vulture Shotgun
A weapon used by both Nod and GDI shotgun infantry, the 'Vulture' Shotgun is a close ranged weapon used best against infantry and light vehicles. With eight rounds per shot, the shotgun could put a hole in just about any infantry at the proper range.
AG79 Kestrel Automatic Grenade Launcher
GDI's only asset in this update. The 'Kestrel' Grenade Launcher fires 40mm grenade rounds in an arc. Although difficult to become accustomed to, if used correctly, the Grenade Launcher could pose a threat to infantry, vehicles, and structures, especially in packs. Primary fire shoots a grenade that explodes on impact, while secondary fire shoots a grenade that will bounce and last a few seconds.
That's all for now!
