The Centurion is a Nod tech vehicle in Command & Conquer: Rivals.


Centurion is the result of Kane's demand for “a mechanical Praetorian Guard, worthy of defending the God's chosen on earth.” The centurion is piloted by battle-hardened veterans, and equipped with a unique “Testudo” shield system able to absorb heavy weapon attacks, making it ideal for defensive operations.


  • Can target infantry Strong against vehicles Cannot target aircraft
  • Periodically negates incoming damage.

Game unit

Centurions are fast moving vehicles designed to stand up against heavy hitting armor. The shield's ability to fully absorb incoming fire makes it especially strong against slow hitting units, like Titans and Predator tank. It can even survive a direct blast of Ion cannon without as much as scratched paint. The shield allows the Centurion to push into long range artillery type units, like M.L.R.S., Juggernaut and Artillery and only take fraction of damage.

The shield will disappear after absorbing even the slightest damage, making it useless when receiving fast chip damage form units like Drone swarm. The Shield restores in 6 seconds.

The fast movement speed allows the Centurion to quickly respond to developments on the battlefield. The relatively high cost and placement in the Temple of Nod makes it difficult to field it in the early and mid game.

The main threats to the Centurion are the heavy anti-vehicle infantry, like Zone troopers and Grenadiers, and aircraft.
