The Buggy is a light recon vehicle of Nod in Tiberian Dawn.


These all-terrain vehicles are armed with an M60 machine-gun in a turret. Faster than GDI's Hum-vee, the Buggy has sacrificed some armor for this advantage. Used in hit and run tactics on infantry and other lightly armored targets, the Buggy shines. Against armor, it dies.
- Tiberian Dawn manual(src)

The Buggy is the Brotherhood's vehicle of choice for short-range recon and anti-infantry attacks. They can be armed with a range of light weapons, but are generally equipped with light machine guns. It can take on a variety of roles and use its superior agility and impressive speed to "bug out" of difficult situations, and is typically used for anti-infantry, patrol, escort, and short-range reconnaissance missions.

By the time of the Second Tiberium War, the Buggy was succeeded by the Attack Buggy.

Game unit[]

The equivalent to the GDI Humvee, the Buggy is the basic scout vehicle of Nod, designed to unshroud the area and harass enemy infantry. The Buggy can cross Tiberium fields without losing health and can be repaired, making it a good candidate for hit-and-run attacks, especially when paired with the Recon Bike.


The buggy is first available in mission Silencing Nikoomba.


  • The German name of the buggy is "combat buggy" (ger. Kampfbuggy), while the name string of the unit in the original game reads "Nod Buggy".
