The Chameleon spy is an elite operative of the Brotherhood of Nod, one of many Nod uses in Tiberian Sun.


The ranks of the Chamelen Spies consist of Nod soldiers who wear stealth suits which allow these infantry to seemingly disappear into thin air. sophisticated sensor arrays are capable of "seeing" through the cloak and allow the spies to be detected.



Chameleon spies were decommissioned following the Firestorm Crisis, being replaced by Shadow Teams as Nod's premier stealth infiltration infantry through numerous operations during the course of the Third Tiberium War.

In-game unit

These infantry units are not produced by any structure within the game and only feature in the single player campaign where they are used in specific missions.


The Chameleon Spy was originally buildable by the player and were fully functional, but the unit was cut eventually. If built (available through editing the rules.ini file), he functions much like a Red Alert spy, but all of the logics (displaying what's being built and revealing the enemy radar) are bugged.

In the background of a video of Beta TS gameplay, recorded by a handheld camera at E3, a unidentified WestWood staff member said "The Chameleon Spy on the Nod side, for instance, can steal plans for enemy Buildings."
