The Avatar Warmech is designed to counter the heaviest units in GDI's arsenal. Equipped with both an Obelisk-class laser cannon and powerful flamethrower, the Avatar can dispatch enemy ground units with ease.
- Explodes on death, damaging all adjacent ground units.
- Fires while moving.
Avatar is the ultimate late game unit for Nod. The continuous attack by either flame thrower or laser cannon will quickly dispatch of any squad units, making it impractical to counter it with lot of cheap ground units. When boosted with the Fanaticism ability, Avatar can move quickly to contest the pads or harass the harvesters. The flamethrower is also effective against structures.
Even if the Avatar falls pray to a swarm of ground units, like Predator tanks, its exploding core can do a significant damage to any nearby units, if they are not quick enough to escape.
On the ground, the only unit that can beat Avatar is a Mammoth tank. But even if it is under severe air assault, the high health makes Avatar a great distraction, since it is difficult to both attack the Avatar and to contest the pads, let alone pressure the base.
The main weakness of the Avatar is the high cost. If the opponent is successfully charging the pads and pressuring the Harvesters, there might not be enough time to collect enough Tiberium to field the Avatar before the final Nuclear missile hits.

Behind the scenes
|“||“The Avatar is an oft requested addition to Rivals and a unit we’ve been just as eager to get it into the game. Finally Nod has a unit that can go head to head with the Mammoth Tank.
- Mad scientist personality with a bent on destruction. Male.
- Avatar ofttimes glitches and is gliding instead of walking.
- The avatar is the only unit that does damage to nearby units when it explodes.
- Mammoth tank — GDI counterpart.
