- A Confessor Cabal

Confessors are an elite Brotherhood of Nod infantry unit appearing in Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars and its expansion pack of Kane's Wrath.


To bring the word.
- A Confessor Cabal

Ordained members of theBlack Hand, Confessors are both religious figures and military officers within the Brotherhood of Nod, working in intelligence and interrogation during "peace" and serving as tactical squad leaders for Nod's countless militias in times of war.

These warrior-priests can be assigned to lead the militia and rocket infantry of the Brotherhood into combat, for they guide the rage of the downtrodden and bolster faith in Kane by instructing them (if need be by force) in the Ways of Nod. The order is commanded by a Grand Confessor.

Confessors usually wear black body armor along with a red cloak bearing the Brotherhood's insignia, and a tall helmet with four visual receptors. They're armed with an advanced assault rifle and carry an array of hallucinogenic grenades, which causes enemy infantry to go berserk and attack their own comrades.


Hallucinogenic Grenades (passive) Confessors hurl Hallucinogenic Grenades, causing enemy infantry to fire on each other for 6 seconds with a splash radius of 75. Hallucinogenic Grenades have a range of 250. Hallucinogenic Grenades are thrown against enemy infantry every 10 seconds. Confessors automatically throw the grenades at enemy infantry after a pre-attack delay of 1 second.

Notable confessors

Notably, Brother Marcion, a high ranking Confessor and an accomplished writer, played an important role in Nod internal politics after the Second Tiberium War. After taking control of the Black Hand, he redefined the roles of Confessors in combat, creating Confessor Cabals, who continued to serve as the basic frontline infantry of the Black Hand throughout the Third Tiberium War.


  • In Tiberium Wars, a militant or rocket militant squad which is reduced to only their Confessor leader will change its voiceover to that of a Black Hand squad.
  • If a Militant Rocket Squad is reduced to only the confessor, the confessor will not automatically attack any targets, as the confessor range is shorter than the rocket squad and the game does not recognize the missing rocket men.
